Was the problem caused by the mental health in prescribing mind drugs or in the use of psychothreapy?
Brain Stains: Traumatic therapies can have long-lasting effects on mental health
A wave of nausea washed over Sheri J. Storm when she opened the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on a February morning a decade ago and saw the headline:“Malpractice lawsuit: Plaintiff tells horror of memories. Woman emotionally testifies that psychiatrist planted false recollections.” The woman in the article shared a lot with Storm—the same psychiatrist, the same memories, the same diagnosis of multiple personality disorder. At that moment, Storm suddenly realized that her own illness and 200-plus personalities, though painfully real to her, were nothing more than a figment of her imagination—created by her trusted therapist, Kenneth Olson.
Storm initially sought treatment from Olson because of insomnia and anxiety associated with divorce proceedings and a new career in radio advertising. She had hoped for an antidepressant prescription or a few relaxation techniques. But after enduring hypnosis sessions, psychotropic medications and mental-ward hospitalizations, Storm had much more to worry about than stress. She had “remembered” being sexually abused by her father at the age of three and forced to engage in bestiality and satanic ritual abuse that included the slaughtering and consumption of human babies. According to her psychiatrist, these traumatic experiences had generated alternative personalities, or alters, within Storm’s mind.
Storm is now convinced that her multiple personality disorder was iatrogenic, the product of her “therapy.” But years after the psychiatric sessions have ceased, she is still tormented by vivid memories, nightmares and physical reactions to cues from her fictitious past. Although she was told that the false memories would fade over time, she has had a difficult time purging these “brain stains” from the fabric of her mind.
Storm’s case is similar to those of many other patients who underwent recovered-memory therapy that revealed sordid histories of sexual abuse and demonic ceremonies. Although the scientific literature suggests that traumatic events are rarely, if ever, repressed or forgotten, this type of therapy was widespread in the 1990s and is still practiced today. Only after several high-profile lawsuits did the American Medical Association issue warnings to patients about the unreliability of recovered memories. Nadean Cool, the patient described in the newspaper story that turned Storm’s life upside down, filed one such lawsuit. Cool received a $2.4-million settlement after 15 days of courtroom testimony. Amid the heated controversy, the American Psychiatric Association discontinued the diagnostic category of multiple personality disorder, replacing it with the slightly different diagnosis of dissociative identity disorder.

Could the childs problem be the erosion of parental authority by the mental health industry in the 1980's as a political agenda for power and control in the society?

There Are No "Chemical Imbalances"
APA lies to the American Public and puts the society in danger
No test for chemical imbalance. No medical model and no evident based medicine in psychiatry.
The fraud has been going on for more then 30 years since H W Bush was CEO, Eli Lilly and before his VP under the Reagan Presidency when the essential Amino Acid "Tryptophan" was limited in the food chain and Prozac entered the market place. Lots of people compromised under the fraud of mental health services with made to order mental illnesses with mind altering drugs as the capitalist solution. The Republican ALEC solution.
There Are No "Chemical Imbalances"
"The hypothetical disturbances of neurochemical function that are said to underlie "mental illness" are just that: hypothetical. No experiment has ever shown that anyone has an "imbalance" of any neurotransmitters or any other brain chemicals. Nor could any conceivable experiment demonstrate the existence of a "chemical imbalance," simply because no one, least of all the biopsychiatrists, has the slightest idea what a proper and healthy chemical "balance" would look like."
"...the views and beliefs of biopsychiatry have nothing to do with the answers to scientific questions in any case: the hunt for biological "causes" of "mental illness" is an entirely fallacious enterprise in the first place; the non- existence of data to support its assertions is quite beside the point."
"The latest edition of one pharmacology text has this to say about the status of depression as a disease: "Despite extensive efforts, attempts to document the metabolic changes in human subjects predicted by these [biological] hypotheses have not, on balance, provided consistent or compelling corroboration." This is a long-winded way of admitting that not even a scrap of evidence supports the idea that depression results from a "chemical imbalance." Yet patients are told every day - by their doctors, by the media, and by drug company advertising - that it is a proven scientific fact that depression has a known biochemical origin. It follows directly that millions of Americans are being lied to by their doctors; and people surely can't give informed consent for drug treatment when what they're being "informed" by is a fraud.... To sum up: there is no evidence whatsoever to support the view that "mental illness" is biochemical in origin; in other words, things like "Unipolar Disorder" and "Attention Deficit Disorder" simply do not exist."

Cartoon: Psychiatry / Court/ puppet
Establishing State Mental Health Courts
There is no science and there has never been a cure for mental illness.
There is no medical model. No evidence based medicine and the Mental Health / Pharmaceutical industry lied about Chemical imbalance to drug the population. There is no imaging (MRI) to declare a defective brain from a normal brain.
The Mental Health Industry is political and based on hearsay. The court shouldn't except hearsay.
Psychiatry is fake science. The Thud Experiment proof.

The dirty deal of the Amino Acid Tryptophan
The MKULTRA project was a CIA initiative to control the thought and actions of people and was tested on unsuspecting American and Canadians during the 1950-1970. It is still happening today using psychotropic, anti-depressant, anti-psychotic and Statin drugs and involves children.
Bogus diagnoses by the mental Health Industry to which there is no science, no medical model, no evidence based medicine and no test for chemical balance is the political means of controlling the population by mind drugs, psychotherapy and Electro Shock Therapy and represents the greatest threat to any political structure including a Constitutional country like the USA. It is now happening on a Worldwide basis.
Pasted from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_MKULTRA
MKULTRA was followed up by the Hippie generation, then the controlling of the school system and eroding of parental authority (1989 -90). The limiting of the essential amino acid Tryptophan in the same time frame as Prozac entered the market place (1989).
This is the basis for the corruption of the Mental health / Pharmaceutical industry in the societies today using Pharmaceutical mind drugs.

Inside the Battle to Define Mental Illness
Every so often Al Frances says something that seems to surprise even him. Just now, for instance, in the predawn darkness of his comfortable, rambling home in Carmel, California, he has broken off his exercise routine to declare that “there is no definition of a mental disorder. It’s bullshit. I mean, you just can’t define it.” Then an odd, reflective look crosses his face, as if he’s taking in the strangeness of this scene: Allen Frances, lead editor of the fourth edition of the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (universally known as the DSM-IV), the guy who wrote the book on mental illness, confessing that “these concepts are virtually impossible to define precisely with bright lines at the boundaries.” For the first time in two days, the conversation comes to an awkward halt.
Pasted from < http://www.wired.com/magazine/2010/12/ff_dsmv... ;
There are no genetic tests, no brain scans, blood tests, chemical imbalance tests or X-rays that can scientifically/medically prove that any psychiatric disorder is a medical condition.

Here's what we can do
If the State or Federal Government were really serious on health care they would require the mental Health Industry to be based on evidence based medicine only. The Mental health Industry represents 75 percent of Disability payments and 80 percent of VA benefits. The Mental Health Industry is the prime reason for the instability in the society and the Health care woes of this nation. They are political with no science.
That action of requiring Medical Based medicine for the Mental health Industry would cripple the Republican Party ability to drug America, Fail the Republican attempt to infiltrate the judiciary and create the Mental Health Court . It would play havoc to the Republican Private Prison System. It would cut the pharmaceutical industry profits and put the army of pharmaceutical drug salesmen on the street selling pencils. It would trash the theories of the APA in their development of their bible "the DSM" which was developed at the yearly APA circle jerk and raising of hands. It would also cut the Government payouts for Medicare drugs and mental health services saving billions of dollars and it would snap the attempt to license psychologists to prescribe more mind drugs. It would save the lives of thousands of people and children death and medical harm including the compromising of their sanity on the falsehood of mental health diagnoses and prescribing of mind drugs. It would clear out the expense of the Mental Health Industry hanging around at the local schools with no science and pure bull manure as propaganda. It would cripple the school system by eliminating the program IDEA to drug unsuspecting normal children with a bogus diagnoses for mind drugging. It would be a real kick in the balls to the Republicans and their political objective. A slap in their face, a piss on their head.

ALEC and Its Tea Party Sugar Daddies
Beginning in 2009, FreedomWorks was instrumental in creating the faux-populist Tea Party.
The mainstream media uncritically hyped the scores of Tea Party tax day protests orchestrated by FreedomWorks and the National Taxpayers Union (another Koch-funded ALEC group headed by former ALEC executive director Duane Parde), thus helping enable unprecedented Republican legislative majorities in states across the nation.

Koch Brothers / ALEC / Republicans
Notorious Nazis Ilse Koch, her husband Karl Otto Koch and Erich Koch are the ghosts of Koch Industries, who seized the U.S. conservative political agenda years ago and seem capable of seizing the government in total through the Tea Party. Ilse Koch was the Nazi's specialist in making objects from human skin; was the only woman charged with war crimes; and along with her husband was in charge of one of the most horrific horror camps in Nazi Germany.
Koch Industries is the child of the violence of Buchenwald, widely regarded as one of wartime Germany's most notorious "death camps"....
...the American Koch was related to Ilse's family, Erich Koch (a high level Nazi official in charge of Prussia) invites Fred Koch to sell his oil in Nazi Germany when he is banned from doing business in the US. After the fall of Nazi Germany, Erich Koch and Fred expand the oil empire to the Soviet Union. Erich Koch had been in charge of Prussia for Hitler so his ties to the Soviet Union ran deep. A few years later the Soviets took Fred Koch's oil and prosecuted Erich for war crimes - Fred Koch returned to the US, became anti-communist, and was allowed to do business in the States again.
American Fred Koch, and through association the Kochs from Germany, establish the John Birch Society in the 1950s in NY, which becomes the policy center for American conservatives. The society was built on Fred Koch's oil money in the 1950s ...
Ilse and her husband Karl were tried by the SS before the war ended, accused of corruption. Her husband Karl Otto Koch was tried and sentenced to death in Nazi Germany....

Specifically on bone problems, remember that before you start taking any medication or undergo any treatment, make sure that it is doctor recommended. It is important that you go through a medical check-up first to determine the proper medication you should take.

Hopefully, Josh William’s surgery will be successful. According to specialists, the shoulder joint is one of the most commonly involved joints in rheumatic diseases (over 100 disease types). Rheumatic diseases are immune diseases that affect various tissues of the body, including the joints, by causing arthritis (pain, swelling, stiffness, and limited joint movements). If you experience knee pain, ask your doctor for a medication/treatment. You may also refer to http://www.depuyhipreplacementlawsuit.com/hip... .

One thing that has come to light is when there is a deficiency in certain vitamin and nutrients there is an increase in mental problems. Nutrients which have a relatively strong connection with ADHD iron, zinc, magnesium,vitamin D, and omega-3 fatty acids to name a few have been shown to be deficient in children with ADHD. People who suffer from depression have been shown to be deficient in several vitamins and minerals. So it goes to show that a good diet is important especially for children. Processed and refined foods seem to be very troublesome to our bodies. If we could go back to the way we got our foods 60 years ago, I feel we all would be much healthier and these so called mental disorders would begin to be less of a problem for folks.
