“Many ordinary meds cause depression…”

For years, I’ve been writing about the medical system’s self-feeding mechanism…

Give a patient a drug to treat his symptoms; the drug causes new symptoms, which are diagnosed as a new illness; and then new drugs are given, and those drugs cause still more symptoms, which in turn are diagnosed as a new condition…on and on it goes. Drugged patients suffer tragically and needlessly, and cash piles up in Big Pharma’s coffers.

At one time, this circle of devastation might have been called an accident. But now, all the experts know the truth. Therefore, this is rightly labeled a MARKETING STRATEGY, and, at the highest levels, a covert op to disable the population.

Here is a new revelation:

Suppose your doctor told you this: “I’m prescribing an antidepressant because the other drugs you’ve been taking have a side effect—they cause depression.”

You might say, “Wow, where is my compensation for suffering depression?”

The answer, of course, is: Nowhere.

Yahoo News (6/12) has the story: “One third of Americans are taking prescription and over-the-counter drugs, such as birth control pills, antacids and common heart medications, that may raise the risk of depression, researchers warned on Tuesday.”

“Since the drugs are so common, people may be unaware of their potential depressive effects, said the report in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).”

“’Many may be surprised to learn that their medications, despite having nothing to do with mood or anxiety or any other condition normally associated with depression, can increase their risk of experiencing depressive symptoms, and may lead to a depression diagnosis,’ said lead author Dima Qato, assistant professor of pharmacy systems, outcomes and policy at the University of Illinois at Chicago.”

Here is the kicker: “The report was released one week after US health authorities said suicides have risen 30 percent in the past two decades, with about half of suicides among people who were not known to suffer from mental illness.”

“Anti-depressants are the only drug class that carries an explicit warning — called a black box warning — of suicide risk.”

Continue reading…

[I am well versed in the terrible effects of birth control pills. I was on them for seven years and, despite being told that my “ovaries would be protected for seven years after stopping the medication”, my endocrine system suffered for longer than that. Depression and weight problems troubled me for decades. Conveniently, doctors don’t mention the birth control/depression connection. Any “depressive symptoms” that occur are labeled as “psychological problems” or some other mental illness diagnosis. Their answer? More drugs. Yeah. Thanks a lot. Thirty years and three psychiatrists later, I cleaned up my system. Some of the damage to my body is permanent.

How To Care For A Sad Person

I picked this up from Facebook and had to laugh. Actually, it is a really sweet sentiment. The title of the FB page reminds me of the torture of our veterans and, the rise of suicides and opioid overdoses. It appears that PTSD is not an exclusively ‘veteran’ affliction. Trauma comes in many forms…physical, emotional, mental/psychological, spiritual…

My heart breaks when I hear about or read of veterans committing suicide at a rate of 22 per day on average or the skyrocketing reports of opioid overdoses due to intense pain, either physical, emotional or even spiritual. In the eyes and hearts of many, how can ‘God’ allow such suffering.

The recent spate of celebrity and/or musician deaths/suicides is increasingly shocking, though, I honestly believe that there is more going on there than is being reported. Hollyweird is a really hard place to exist. It certainly seems to be “pedophile central”.

There are no hard and fast answers for many. I see a rather large contingent of unhappy souls eager to leave. And, if you are of the idea that reincarnation actually happens, perhaps these souls will return to better circumstances.

In the meantime, sushi-roll your friends and loved ones. Hug them and dry their tears. Watch a happy movie or listen to happy music. Hold their hands and show them the sunshine. Your simple gestures can create positive waves and ripples in the collective consciousness. Not only can your actions heal those closest to you, the healing can spread exponentially.

A Brief History of Chemtrails

Posted on Updated on

A Blog Post From: The Chris Thomas Files

Photo Credit: worldtruth.tv

At the end of 2009, the British government very reluctantly acknowledged that they were chemically seeding the atmosphere “as a means of combating global warming” – see later.

However, the dumping of chemicals into the atmosphere goes back many years. For more details of this and the underlying reasons see my book, written with Dave Morgan, called Project Human Extinction which has chapters and appendices detailing the use of chemicals and biological agents either as weapons testing or population control. Also see numerous articles on the internet which detail the kinds of chemicals that are being dumped into our atmosphere by both military and civilian aircraft.

The first use of air-borne biological agents was by the Japanese in 1941 and 1942 when they sprayed the Chinese mainland with bubonic plague from aircraft. This spraying from aircraft was noted by the American Military who began their own testing programmes on their own populations. In 1949, the US Army began a 20 year programme of simulated germ warfare attacks against American cities, conducting at least 293 open air tests. These are the first known use of “chemtrails”.

The effect of the chemicals was studied by the vivisection of farm animals, most notably cattle, and this is the actual reason for the animal mutilations which have been blamed on UFO’s. They are nothing to do with UFO’s with the military involvement being confirmed by a secret FBI investigation published under the Freedom of Information Act a few years ago.

Added to this biological weapons use is the deliberate destruction of the bee population. Bees are the planet’s primary pollinators but are not needed for Genetically Modified crops. Therefore, as far as the GM companies are concerned, if there are no bees, no crops will grow and people will turn to GM to feed themselves. I have a personal experience of this in that in September 2009, I woke up to find the sky over my house had a grid pattern of chemtrails. In that September, there had been a glut of fruit and an extremely high wasp and bee population. Three days after the grid pattern chemtrails there was not a bee or a wasp to be seen. Nexus magazine published a letter of mine at the time of this incident which produced a crop of letters from others confirming similar experiences. A similar letter was published in Nexus in October of last year written by someone in Yorkshire giving exactly the same story – a grid pattern of chemtrails with a noticeable death of bees.

The problem does not only relate to bees, all insects have been affected and this is one of the major reasons for the decline in bird numbers as there are not enough insects for them to eat. There’s a simple way of checking this. Twenty years ago, if you drove anywhere rural at night, you had to wash the windscreen, headlamps and radiator grille of the car to clear off all of the dead bugs: this is no longer necessary as there are no longer enough insects to cause this problem.

So what is the purpose of chemtrails?

There seem to be several reasons apart from the testing of biological weapons.

From some of the chemical analysis reports I have read, some of the chemicals are specifically designed to reduce soil fertility. In other words, to destroy the production of food crops. Again, this seems to tie in with the wants of the GM companies.

However, there is also the question of population control. In 1992, The United Nations Conference on Environment and Development Earth Summit took place in Rio de Janeiro. Out of this summit came the “Biodiversity Treaty” and “Agenda 21”. The stated aim of these agendas is to reduce the world’s human population to “a sustainable 500,000,000” (five hundred million). Given that the official world population figure puts the global human population as around 6,500,000,000 (six billion, five hundred million) it means that the global population must be reduced by six billion people by the year 2050 – the date given at the summit – that is 350,000 people per day or 128 million per year.

The way in which chemtrails work in respect to the Rio Summit is to make people susceptible to illness. The chemicals sprayed are designed to give people the “first half” of an illness: for example, some of the chemtrails have contained chemicals which affected the lungs. This lung weakness then made the body more receptive to illnesses such as Bird Flue, Avian Flue (different strain to bird flue) and Swine Flue. The “second half” of these illnesses would be given either by further chemtrails or by annual flue vaccinations.

To return to climate control.

We have had steadily climbing global temperatures since 1850; this is an undisputed fact. However, the reason for this temperature rise is not anthropogenic (man-made).

Despite Al Gore’s infamous “hockey stick graph” (which has been legally proven a fake – Al Gore “averaged out” the actual figures to give a deliberately misleading graph) which most people have assumed to show actual climate change, the truth is (from official and Met Office figures) that when temperatures began to rise in about 1800, the cause of the rise was due to increased sun activity.

Between the years of about 1450 and 1850, the average global temperature was below freezing. In 1850, the temperature began to rise above freezing and continued climbing until 2000 where temperatures stopped rising. Since 2000, global temperatures have actually dropped slightly – by only about 0.1 of a degree – so we do not have “runaway global warming” caused by human production of carbon dioxide, what we do have is an increase in Sun activity since the early 1800’s and this increased Sun activity stopped in 2000 where the Sun entered a period known as a “Maunder Minimum” – see my book Synthesis for more detail on this. The Friends of the Earth produced their own figures for annual carbon dioxide production and found that “human activities” produce about 26 million tonnes whilst the Earth naturally produces about 980 tonnes.

The British government has stated that they are “chemically seeding” the atmosphere to combat global warming. The main ingredient of this “seeding” is water vapour, or by another name, clouds. The argument is that by increasing cloud cover global warming can be combated by reflecting the Sun’s heat back out into space. But, cloud cover actually causes global warming by trapping hot air close to the Earth’s surface. As an example: think of a winter’s night, the sky is clear and we have a severe frost. The following night is cloudy but there is no frost as the cloud cover acts like a duvet and holds the heat close to the surface – see reports and studies by the likes of Professor David Bellamy for more detail on this.

So the British government policy of cloud seeding will not combat global warming but will, in fact, increase it. Why would they want to do this? In order to make us believe that global warming is happening and that all of the other ludicrous policies that go with their strategies are necessary and to keep us in a state of fear – a population living in fear is easily manipulated, their health suffers and the process of consciousness reintegration is slowed, if not stopped.

In summary: The reason for chemtrails is population control and population reduction as well as promoting GM crops.

In addition to the use of chemtrails, there is the fluoridation of drinking water. This is not natural Calcium Fluoride as most believe but chemically produced sodium fluoride (Hexafluorosilicic Acid) a known carcinogen and the cause of many other health problems. It is more toxic than lead.

The increased uses of pharmaceutical drugs that are know to be harmful. The British Medical Association states that in Britain, 250,000 people per year are hospitalised by drug reactions of which 10,000 die every year. The American Medical Association states that in America 136,000 people die each year directly from adverse effects of prescribed drugs. The AMA also states, in its 5 year study published in 2008, that medical treatment (of all kinds) is responsible for killing two and three quarter million people per year in America alone. Given medical treatment is global; the global death rate is probably in the region of 10 million at least. This is a long way from the Hippocratic Oath – first do no harm!

I Can’t Believe It’s Not Cholesterol

Posted on Updated on

An Article From: The Chris Thomas Files

“Have you ever wondered why eggs contain so much cholesterol? It is because it takes one hell of a lot of cholesterol to make a chicken.”

Quote from Dr. Malcolm Kendrick

Cholesterol Con Book Image

The same applies to you. If your mother did not have sufficient cholesterol when you were conceived, you would not be here.

Cholesterol is one of the most important substances the body produces. It is manufactured in the liver and is needed by every single cell of the body (and brain cells in particular) every single second of the day. If your cholesterol levels drop, you begin to have organ failure, elastic tissue problems and memory loss, as well as depression and, if the level drops too low, aggression, suicidal tendencies and, ultimately, death.

Ever since this cholesterol question came up, I have been investigating it psychically and have not been able to find any real answers. Margarine companies, doctors and some scientific papers all say cholesterol is bad but, when I have worked with my healing clients over this issue, I have never found a cholesterol-related problem in their bodies, even when they have a medical diagnosis of ‘high cholesterol’.

If we put something toxic into the body, the body rejects it and excretes it. Substances produced by the body’s internal chemistry are only what the body needs. In other words, the body does not poison itself. All symptoms of illness are controlled by the higher self and blood problems relate to the heart chakra (see my book Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Your Body…). However, even heart chakra problems do not raise cholesterol levels, especially since you will not find cholesterol in the blood.

At long last, I have found a doctor who talks some sense on this issue… Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, author of The Great Cholesterol Con, so this next section is a precis of what Dr. Kendrick has to say.

Beware Smart Meters

Posted on Updated on

Smart meters are bad news. Seriously. These things should be outlawed. Not only have there been reports of skyrocketing bills and privacy invasion but, the radiation that these things give off can ravage your health. If you refuse and say no to the installation of one, you are charged a one time hefty fee and a monthly charge. Nice, huh?

Smart Meters

This technology has destroyed jobs because they don’t need to be read by a human. They just transmit their data and boom, the power company knows how much power you are using. Apparently, they can also tell which appliance(s) you are using and there is the potential to, say, shut off your appliance(s) or cut your overall power when they determine that you are using too much. They might have the ability to know when you are home and when you are not. Talk about Big Brother.

Stop Smart Meters is a terrific website with lots of information. It is a gateway to all things “Smart Meter” and “EMF”. Check it out.

YouTube videos:

Dr. David O. Carpenter, Dean of the School of Public Health at the University of Albany, former head of the New York State Dept. of Public Health and is a graduate of Harvard Medical School warns of the health dangers:

This video shows how aluminum foil can block the radiation:

Aluminum mesh does the same:

You can buy a Smart Meter Guard but, he’s charging $100:

This woman claims that her smart meter drove away bees and bats:

A Glendale, CA, woman was persistent and got her analog meter put back on. I don’t know if the city is charging her a fee for having that done but, her health was a definite issue:

Smart meter rollout has been delayed for a year in the UK. I hope we can stop this in the states. We have enough trouble with EM fields from computers, cell phones, cell towers and Wi-Fi. Don’t even get me started on curly fry lights (thank you Mark Steyn).

Beware Stephen Barrett & His Quackwatch

Posted on Updated on

[Administrator’s Note: This is a repost from an old blog. I think it’s worth sharing because I find this man to be dangerous. He’s a liar and a bully and, I’m shining the light on him. Cockroaches don’t like the light.]

Update: I originally posted this on February 27, 2010. Some of the links became broken and I’ve had to re-gather some information as Mr. Barrett has done his best to wipe out his history. If links become broken again, I have provided PDF screen captures of the data.

This guy, Stephen Barrett…he’d have you believe that he is the foremost expert in all things ‘quackery’. To him, anything other than mainstream-AMA-backed medicine is useless.

Although he is free to present his opinion, much like the rest of us out here blogging (me, included), do not be fooled by the ‘M.D.’ at the end of his name. I think he even wrote his own biography on Wikipedia. However, that being expressed, he has gotten himself into quite a bit of trouble in the courts for repeatedly suing people and claiming he was a ‘retired psychiatrist’. Carlos F. Negrete of Negrete Law and Health Freedom Law, attorney for Tedd Koren, D.C., got the awful truth out of Mr. Barrett…

From Dr. Koren’s case:

At trial, under a heated cross-examination by Negrete, Barrett conceded that he was not a Medical Board Certified psychiatrist because he had failed the certification exam. This was a major revelation since Barrett had provided supposed “expert testimony” as a psychiatrist and had testified in numerous court cases as such.

That cross-examination (screen capture PDF) took place in 2005 in Allentown, PA…Mr. Barrett’s longtime residence (he was born in New York City in 1933). In 2007, a higher court in Pennsylvania backed up the lower court’s decision to dismiss his frivolous lawsuit (orginal screen capture PDF) (updated screen capture PDF). It was at that point he decided to relocate to Chapel Hill, NC. Perhaps Allentown folks got tired of his crap? I find it amusing that he decided to move to an area that is a hotbed of the very alternative medicine he rails against. The Triangle of North Carolina (Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill) contains a plethora of natural, homeopathic and holistic practitioners. I’m pretty sure he didn’t move to the area to get warm fuzzies from the locals. I think he saw an opportunity to make money harassing and ambulance-chasing gifted healers. He does have legal bills he needs cover.

A Patrick Pontillo operated a now-defunct website (screen capture PDF) on chemical sensitivities (a subject that I know something about). He maintains an additional, similar website, Blue Marble Album. He has an extensive history on Mr. Barrett.

Tim Bolen has his own history of Barrett (screen capture PDF) from his website (a page that no longer exists) and wrote an article on the Doctor’s Data vs Barrett case. Judging by this posted 2016 legal decision, the case was nearly a stalemate but, Barrett’s National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF) dissolved after the lawsuit began and Quackwatch dissolved before the case came to trial…even though the website is still active and full of hysterical mainstream medical nonsense. “Googling” this case (I really, really dislike that term but, it is, now, part of our language…for better or worse…) will return links stating that the case was “settled, amicably, out of court”. Translation: Both parties were tired of fighting after six years. A lawsuit of this size and scope costs money…and time. And, Stephen Barrett is in his 80s. The briefing notes clearly state that both parties were free to re-file and start new court proceedings. That means…more money and more time.

How The Attack On Alternative Medicine Started

Be very careful when you read this man’s so-called “facts”. He is no expert. He merely has an opinion and he has tried to beat people over the head with it. Believing that this man is a seasoned doctor with many, many practicing years of experience would be as ridiculous as believing that I am an experienced journalist. I am not and would never claim to be.

[Administrator’s Additional Note: If you have browser plugins or search bar plugins such as WOT, Norton, Webutation or an Anti-virus plugin for browser security such as Avast!, you might think that some of my links listed above are bad sites. They are NOT. Some of these websites have been slammed by folks that have been duped by Mr. Barrett or by folks that think allopathic medicine is all there is. Either way, pay no attention. I have thoroughly vetted these sites (I like to be safe surfing, too…) and they are legitimate.]
