Psychotherapy and "analysis" are unproven and rife with abuse, but the drugs are worse.
It would take me hours to document what I endured at the hands of the so-called psychiatric profession. The highlights...at the onset of puberty I began having suicidal thoughts and I was labeled bipolar and loaded up with psychiatric medications, none of which did anything but make my situation more dire. Eventually I underwent over a dozen ECT treatments, which also, just worsened the situation. For over 7 years I was on 20 medications , including oxycodone, prescribed by a psychiatrist as a mood stabilizer, which placed me in a trance like state. I don't know how, it must of been God's intervention, I stopped the medications, and after about 2 years, regained my sanity. I am having some physical complications as a result of the toxins I have ingested over the years. Thank God, my mental acuity has returned full force.
While I wholeheartedly agree with the consensus (here, at least!) that psychotherapy and the drugs used in the field are more or less voodoo, I am wondering what Dr. Hahn and Dr. Yoho recommend for Alzheimer's patients and those with early onset dementia. Without meds, the behavior is too much to handle and certainly too much to handle in a homecare situation.
Brilliant article. I intend to listen yet, but had to tell you I so related to what you wrote. Some past experiences - some decades ago as a teen. I feel so validated now. THANK YOU!🙏
Couldn’t agree more. However, Dr. Mate seems to mostly agreeable.
I have two interesting points here after reading this; one, back in 2020, I seriously felt like I wanted to die after somebody who was pretending to be my friend tossed me off of a community project for reporting his bad behavior to a fellow staff member. I made the mental mistake of equating the project with my personal friendships, and started feeling useless. I think that had my friends not been there, my real ones, I probably wouldn't still be here, to be honest.
On a different note, I read in a broadcast from where I work that the only two treatments for acute suicidal depressive state are either Ketamine or ECT, and oftentimes the doctor chooses the treatment, not the patient. Is that true, and if so, why?
One more thing. I knew a woman, and this woman had been put in an inpatient program when she was younger, where they basically sedated her all day and never allowed her to do anything. Once she was released back into society, her medications weren't continued. Whenever she would suffer hallucinations, I told her to call me, and eventually she was able to successfully ignore them. We never met in person, though I seriously believe that we had a spiritual connection (I believe in the spirit world and that beings from it are instrumental in helping humans along the quest that's called life and that we cannot function without them.) I think that it was either my connection with her or one of her guides who helped her. Medications only seek to block that side of us from being freed. thoughts?
The garbage they put out is like marriage counselors, OPINIONS. NOT Facts. MED CORRUPTION long read, but goes along with your book.

Saw my new Primary Thursday, New BP Guidelines, which were made up to begin with so Big Pharma could sell more killer drugs. Mine runs high with excess pain, stress and White Coat syndrome, not daily. And my history with taking BP meds is dismal.
Take a look at my work on Interpersonal Wisdom. www.interpersonalwisdom.com Psychotherapy works but not for the reasons we think it works.
Many of us could share for hours the injustice & harm done by mental health “ experts” & the effects & harms of the drugs .
I’m sober now but failed out of Geneseo college, drinking . Embarrassed for years. Now , I am thankful because I was studying psychology. I had no idea God was looking out for me so completely.
The college educated friends I know are all vaccinated & incapable of critical thinking since the lockdown started.
Dr jolly west was a great example of being praised for his groundbreaking work yet was diabolical and expert with many of the “ m k ultra “ victims.
