“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.”

[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.

Illness: A Message From The Higher Self

Posted on Updated on

An Article From: The Chris Thomas Files

At long last, everyone is seeing the change that is taking place in the world. Unfortunately, most only see a move to chaos and destruction. This seeming chaos is the bringing to the surface of all that has been hidden.

As the impetus for change continues to accelerate, situations which have been long hidden and unknown are coming to light in order that they can be dealt with and cleared. Much of what was accepted or hidden in the past is becoming public knowledge and those responsible are paying the political or legal price for their actions.

What we are seeing is the removal of the old as we usher in the new. If we begin to renovate our houses, we must first demolish all that is worn out and unwanted in order to make way for the fresh and the new.

Nobody is immune from this work of restoration. All past problems – personal as well as global – must be brought to light and cleared so that there is the space to propagate and nurture the new. As we approach a new year, the speed of demolition must increase as we are a little behind in our work. Do not despair if your world, or the world at large, looks like it is crashing around your ears. This is only to remove the old and, once demolition is complete, our new futures will begin to unfold in all the glory of the beings of full consciousness we are becoming.

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

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.

Proof That Our DNA Is Evolving

Posted on

I purposely changed the title to this post to read differently from the original post from Gregg Prescott at In5D. We aren’t mutating and, technically, we aren’t evolving even though I used that term in the title. We are, actually, returning to what we once were…true humans. We, originally, had 13 strands of DNA and our total soul within our bodies (see The Chris Thomas Files link, above, to find out real human history).

This is an astounding article, nonetheless, as an article on DNA strands actually showed up in the main stream media (Science on NBC News) back in January of 2013. The article links back to photos of four-strand DNA structures on Live Science. The researchers have labeled them as G-quadruplexes.

Quote from Dr. Berrenda Fox from the In5D article:

Some adults that I have tested actually do have another DNA helix forming. Some are even getting their third. These people are going through a lot of major shifts in their consciousness and physical bodies, because it is all one. In my opinion, the Earth and everyone here is raising its vibration. Many of the children born recently have bodies that are magnetically lighter.

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.

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.]
