6 yrs psych drug free: How I made it through the darkest times of protracted withdrawal syndrome
 
12:17
For more see the post on Beyond Meds: http://beyondmeds.com/2016/02/09/6years-off/ Today is my anniversary off a huge psych drug cocktail I'd been on for 20 years. Below the video I made for this occasion is a cut and paste collection of the now 6 years documented since the also six year withdrawal process. http://beyondmeds.com/2010/01/10/recap-6-drugs-6-years-2/ In the video I speak to the inner resources that kept me going. I want to add here that I also was privileged to have a safe home and 24/7 hour care when I was bedridden and unable to leave the house for anything at all. Both the home and the care were provided for me by my husband. No one else in my life, including most of my close family had a clue what we were dealing with. I have to believe if they did they would have done more. The fact is there is nothing in society to help those who love us to understand what we are going through. There is a general denial by the medical establishment that this can even happen. This is something I’ve mostly been able to forgive but I don’t necessarily feel ready to spend much time with most of my family either. My mother is an exception here…she stayed in touch with my husband throughout the whole thing and was willing to do what she could. Indeed she often helped us stay afloat financially, which was, of course, critically important to staying alive. (I couldn’t speak very well for a couple of years so communicating by phone was out) So, my husband and I came through this together. There were many times I would have preferred to be alone given how heinously isolating this experience was simply by nature of the fact that no one can even begin to fathom what we are going through… This fact was painful for both me and Paul in different ways. For more info see: The isolation and sense of abandonment many people deal with when sick with protracted withdrawal illness. http://wp.me/P5nnb-3xy Those of us who have experienced protracted psychiatric drug withdrawal syndromes will always be the only ones who can give each other that acknowledgment. And it’s likely we will continue to freak out pretty much everyone around us when it’s at it’s worst. Anyway, the fact is I would be dead without Paul’s care and so that needs to be made clear as well. He has a deep trust and faith in life too and I wouldn’t have made it without his unusual ability to maintain that in the face of what I went through. Most people would have had me institutionalized, where I certainly would have died. It is a miracle that my husband could hold this space for me. Seriously a miracle. Most folks who come off these drugs don’t become as totally disabled as I did and can still leave the house etc. Not so for me and so, yes, my husband literally kept me alive and provided the space for me to literally disintegrate so that I could come back together again as well. One other person was a visitor during those darkest times. A woman who has become my dear friend. Sent to me from a volunteer organization to give me reiki, she could stand being with me as a witness when no one else could. Mary Joy had spent time as a chaplain in hospice and so knew how to be with people in pain. She told me once that she hadn’t seen another human being in all her time as chaplain who had to go through such an ordeal. She was completely serious. Having myself worked in hospice I know this to be true as well. It wasn’t something I would ever have concluded on my own, but since she said it and it rings true (I’ve worked in hospice too), I share it here now.

4 Natural Remedies for Joint Pain That Really Work
 
03:55
Are you wary of using drugs for pain management? I don’t blame you, I am too. In today’s video I share 4 natural remedies for joint pain treatment and arthritis relief that really work! Traditionally joint pain and arthritis are treated with anti-inflammatory drugs or painkillers such as: Ibuprofen, Cymbalta, Paxil, and Effexor just to name a few. While these drugs can be effective, serious side effects are prevalent, especially over long periods of time. Inflammation is the root cause of pain in the joints. If left untreated, inflammation can lead to chronic pain. Scientists and the medical community are now convinced that chronic inflammation may be the engine that drives many of the most feared illnesses today! For centuries cultures around the world have used natural remedies to relieve joint pain. Four Ways to Reduce Joint Pain Without Drugs! 1. Turmeric (contains the chemical curcumin) This spice has been wildly used in Asian and Middle Eastern cooking. In Numerous Studies, Turmeric has been shown to protect the joints from Inflammation, it has shown relief for Rheumatoid Arthritis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Cystic Fibrosis, and several types of cancer. Turmeric Remedy Solution: 1 teaspoon Turmeric powder, 1 teaspoon crushed sugar, 1 pinch of lime powder. Add an ounce or two of water to create a think paste. Apply to affected area, (knees, hands, shoulder) at night before bed. Use plain water to wash off in the morning. 2. Bromelain Is a mixture of enzymes found in the stems of pineapples. As a combination of proteases, bromelain’s components work to support the bodies normal inflammatory response to highly support the healing process. Athletes who have been monitored taking Bromelain have been found to reduce their recovery time by up to 50%. Isotonix Bromelain Plus is an excellent resource when it comes to fighting inflammation and joint pain. To learn more visit: http://bit.ly/Bromo27 3. Fish Oil - Omega-3 Fatty Acids Omega-3 fish oil has long been studied for its wide range of health benefits including: Cardiovascular disease, brain function, and arthritis. Omega 3’s have a reputation for containing highly potent anti-inflammaorty agents. One of my favorite natural remedies for joint pain is... 4. Pycnogenol - (pine bark extract) It is one of the most researched ingredients in the natural product marketplace. The Pycnogenol Research Library combines 40 years of research and over 340 published studies. You can learn more in the full article here: http://createhealthylifestyle.com/4-natural-remedies-for-joint-pain-that-really-work/ Of the four ways to reduce joint pain, OPC-3 with Pycnogenol® has worked best for me.Check it out here: http://MyIsoT.com It has significantly reduced the inflammation in my body allowing me the mobility and freedom to live pain-free again!

Antidepressants | Tapering Off | Withdrawal
 
05:48
Greetings from Berlin you guys! I finally made it :) So, withdrawal symptoms when quitting SSRIs include: - Anxiety - Depression and mood swings - Dizziness and balance problems, possibly vertigo - Electric shock sensations - Fatigue - Flu-like symptoms - Headache - Loss of coordination - Muscle spasms - Nausea - Nightmares - Tremors - Trouble sleeping - Vomiting ...And the list goes on. I have been struggling with brain zaps, decreased appetite and flu-like symptoms along with depersonalization and dizziness. The best recommendation I can give is to get lots of sleep, try and reduce stress as much as possible, eat healthy and drink loads of water. You might also want to reduce you physical activity or replace your usual excersize routine with a lighter one. If you feel too bad to tolerate the symptoms please contact your doctor, and also try to taper off your antidepressant gradually (your doctor will provide you with a scheme like this one: https://www.health.harvard.edu/diseases-and-conditions/how-to-taper-off-your-antidepressant) If you find yourself having suicidal ideations, thoughts or intentions please contact a help line: https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org Anyway, stay positive, healthy and happy! much love xx ___ instagram: https://www.instagram.com/a._fitz/ tumblr: https://www.tumblr.com/blog/annafitzgerald ___

Happier, More Relaxed, and Emotionally Empty: The High Cost of Overmedication

Dr. Julie Holland relays the dangers related to overprescribed medications. She suggests several alternatives to relying on antidepressants. Holland is author of the new book Moody Bitches (http://goo.gl/fq3xRA).

And that doesn’t include sleeping pills. This is just antidepressants, antianxiety meds and also antipsychotics. Because we’re not getting enough sleep or enough exercise or enough sunshine more and more of us are feeling stressed and anxious and depressed. To me criteria for a major depressive episode you need to be depressed and down more days than not for at least two weeks. Sometimes women are down or depressed for three or four days every month. And it’s important to know that that is normal and it’s natural and it doesn’t have to necessarily be medicated away. 80 percent of prescriptions for psych meds in America are written by non-psychiatrists, by internists and family practitioners and GPs. And, you know, to really tease apart whether you have a psychiatric history, whether your family has a psychiatric history, whether you’ve ever been on these medicines before and whether you really need these medicines or there aren’t other ways to get you to feel better, that’s a long conversation that would take an hour. And internists don’t necessarily have this much time. An antidepressant is not a diagnostic tool. It’s not a test like if, you know, you’re not sure if you’re depressed or not but then you take an antidepressant and you start feeling better and you’re like oh, I must have been depressed. That’s no more accurate than, you know, taking Adderall and discovering that you’re able to concentrate and focus better. That doesn’t mean that you have an attention deficit disorder. People get on these meds and it turns out that they like them. They do feel happier and more relaxed and then they discover that there’s a price to pay. And then they discover that there’s a price to pay for feeling happier and relaxed and their libido is dampened. It’s more difficult to climax. It’s more difficult to cry. They may not feel as connected emotionally with people. And so over time some people decide, you know, I don’t want to be medicated anymore. I don’t feel like myself. And then they discover that it’s actually hard to get off of antidepressants. I’ll give Effexor withdrawal as an example and you can Google Effexor withdrawal and you will see for yourself that there are kind of bizarre symptoms that people have. They will talk about feeling brain zaps, electricity that shoots from their head out their arms. I’ve had patients say they feel their brain moving around in their skull or their eyes are sort of lagging behind their vision, you know. Weird sort of neurological sounding side effects. Unfortunately the way that healthcare is in America right now, I mean it is a commodity. It is a business. It affects the way that doctors and patients interact and sometimes there’s not enough time to really be thorough and have the harder conversations, you know, what did you eat for breakfast this morning? How much sleep did you get last night? Are you exercising? Sometimes it’s just easier to hand over a prescription.

Twenty Herbal Anxiety Remedies: Go Natural!
 
03:59
Find The Effective Treatment For Your Anxiety Disorder http://www.PanicAwayProgram.org Although anxiety is accepted as being a normal and healthy emotion, some people suffer from intense anxiety, which ends up affecting their lives and causing them to keep away from certain situations that they used to be able to deal without difficulty. If you are suffering from anxiety then you should begin on finding an appropriate and effective method of treatment. http://www.PanicAwayProgram.org The first thing you need to do is determining the type of anxiety disorder you suffer from. There are five main types of anxiety disorders: generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and social anxiety disorder. Effective treatments for each anxiety disorder are accessible, and new and enhanced treatments are always becoming available. Non-medication treatments Once you have found out the type of anxiety that you are suffering from you will be able to find the suitable anxiety disorder treatment. Mild anxiety disorders can often be treated relatively simple with relaxation and breathing techniques. Yoga, for instance, is a great type of exercise that can really help with anxiety and related health conditions. This is definitely something that should be tried prior to more serious forms of anxiety disorder treatment. If your anxiety is more severe or constant, then therapy or counseling may become the best option. Cognitive behavioral therapy for one has been confirmed to be very effective in the treatment of all types of anxiety disorder. In this therapy you work one on one with an experienced and qualified mental health professional, who will assist you to deal with your fears in a safe and controlled environment. Over time you will be able to find out the root of your anxiety and from there work towards developing a treatment plan that will lead you to your normal life. You can also select an anxiety disorder treatment plan that involves natural and herbal treatments. Herbal remedies such as valerian root and kava kava have over and over again proven to be effective at treating anxiety disorders and depression. You do need to keep in mind that just because these herbal remedies are natural it does not indicate that you do not still have to be careful. If taken inappropriately, these remedies can actually worsen your anxiety. Hypnotherapy, biofeedback, and acupuncture are other options for anxiety disorder treatment. In order to determine which one is going to work best for you, you need to talk to your doctor. You may need to try a few different methods before you find the one that works best for you and your particular anxiety condition. Medications for anxiety disorder Generally, most treatments for anxiety disorders include at least one prescription medication. If you start taking medication as a treatment for anxiety disorder, it is important to understand that this should not be a long-term solution and you should keep working with a certified mental health professional in order to determine the root cause of your anxiety. There are several common medications for anxiety disorder and one of them is selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. Serotonin is known as the brain's all-natural happy drug. Scientists believe that a lack of serotonin is the source of depression, anxiety, and panic attacks and therefore the purpose of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors is to increase the levels of serotonin in the brain. Some familiar brands that use selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors are Prozac and Zoloft. Benzodiazepines are another choice of medication, which act like minor tranquilizers. They decelerate the body's nervous system, giving it an all-over calm. These types of medications can be addictive, so they should only be taken as prescribed. Some well-known brand names are Xanax and Valium. Another medication that is used to treat anxiety disorder is antidepressants, which affect the neurotransmitters in the brain. Effexor is a good example of this type of anxiety disorder medication. Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) are very strong antidepressant drugs that should only be taken as a last resort after all other treatments have been tried. These drugs can be lethal when combined with certain other drugs and foods. One thing that need to be noted, anyone who takes antidepressants may become more susceptible to suicide, especially when they first begin to take them or when the dosage is changed.

Antidepressant Drugs : How antidepressants work, their side effects and alternatives!
 
09:19
Hello Friends! Do you have following questions or queries in your mind: What are antidepressants or anti depression pills? How to treat depression? What are SSRIs, TCAs or newer antidepressants? How do they work? What are the side effects of antidepressants? Can antidepressants cause weight gain or sexual problem? Are antidepressant medications addictive? are you planning to take antidepressants? How long does one need to take antidepressants? What are natural or herbal antidepressants? What is St. Johns Wort or Hypericum perforatum? Then this is the right place for you to gather the right information from the right person! Antidepressants are pharmaceutical drugs which are used to treat depression (Major Depressive Disorder), anxiety disorders ( Panic disorder, Generalised anxiety disorder, Social anxiety disorder GAD & SAD), and some personality disorders (EUPD). They act on Serotonin (5-HT), a neurotransmitter in our brain and increase its availability. They can also act on Norepinephrine or occasionally Dopamine but mainly its Serotonin. The older generation antidepressants were called Tricyclic antidepressants or TCAs. Some common examples are Amitriptyline (Elavil, Endep), Clomipramine (Anafranil) or Dosulepin (Prothiaden). However, they had multiple side effects and frequently affected the heart. They were cardiotoxic especially in overdose hence not used frequently nowadays. The newer generation antidepressants are called Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor or SSRIs. Some common examples are Fluoxetine (Prozac), Citalopram (Celexa, Cipramil), Paroxetine (Paxil, Seroxat), Fluvoxamine (Luvox, Faverin) and Sertraline (Zoloft, Lustral). They are well tolerated and are not lethal in overdose. Therefore, they are the first line of drug treatment of depression. SSRIs are the first choice of antidepressant drugs for teenagers or adolescents, especially fluoxetine. Lately, there has been some recent addition which includes Venlafaxine (Effexor), Agomelatine (Valdoxan), Duloxetine (Cymbalta), Bupropion (Wellbutrin) and Mirtazapine (Remeron). As they act on receptors in our brain, the onset of action may take a minimum of two weeks or sometimes, four weeks in older people. Their side effects are mild and usually transient. rarely, they can have some serious outcome mainly due to drug interaction. Common side effects of antidepressants include tummy upset like nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, feeling of sickness or loose stools. They can initially worsen sleep or anxiety. Some can lead to nightmares or increased sweating due to increased noradrenaline. They can also have sexual side effects for instance decrease libido or delay ejaculation, usually at higher doses. Occasionally, they can increase suicidal ideation but its mainly seen in adolescents. They are overall protective in suicide in young, adults and older people. When taken for a long time, antidepressants can affect metabolism leading to weight gain or weight loss depending on the particular drug. How to wean off antidepressant drugs? Once taken for a long time, your body may develop some dependence and people can experience some withdrawal symptoms while stopping antidepressants. However, they are not addictive and should be stopped gradually. The recommended duration of treatment is a minimum of six months after symptoms have been adequately treated for depression and one year in case of anxiety disorders. If there have been two or more episodes of depression, treatment should continue for two years. There are alternatives which include psychotherapy and Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT). For mild to moderate depression, talking therapy or Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is the first choice. ECT is used in treatment-resistant depression or suicidal patients. recently, St. John's wart has become popular as a herbal treatment of depression and is widely available. However, it contains a lot of active ingredients with unknown function and can lead to interaction with other drugs. Therefore, it's wise to consult your doctor. Take care and Get well soon! Help is available, just look for it! Regards - Dr Subodh MD MRCPsych

I, Noah Thomas, have been legally prescribed antidepressants by my medical doctor for the treatment of my diagnosed major depressive disorder. Please SHARE THIS VIDEO if you found it useful or if you know somebody who is suffering and/or feeling alone. Thank you. MY STORY My name is Noah and on May 18 2011, I had a rare reaction to a vaccine called VIVITROL and consequently spiraled into a major, agitated, suicidal depression with depersonalization. I lost 25 lbs in 4 weeks and was in full panic or near panic for 8 weeks straight mixed with the darkest most painful depression I cold have ever imagined. I immediately could not work and had to move in with my parents who along with many siblings and friends had to watch me 24/7 as I was so suicidal. I was eventually hospitalized. Getting through each day seemed truly unbearable and I knew I would surely die. I have been put on many many different SSRI's SNRI's Tricyclics, Mood stabilizers, anti psychotics, holistic meds, acupuncture and even a form of shock therapy called RTMS. I barely saw any improvement in my condition for a full year. It was decided I had treatment resistant depression and I spent nearly every moment in tears. Weeks after starting my newest round of medications (Seroquel & Nortryptaline) as a last ditch effort, I had my blood drawn for possible hormone imbalances and my Testosterone levels came back 200 ng/Dl and 150 ng/Dl. The average 25 year old male has 750 ng/Dl. With this discovery I for the first time had any type of possible explanation as to why I was not getting better and why I might be so so sick. The symptoms of such Low T are very similar to those of major depression. I started Testosterone replacement therapy soon after and have been checking in with the world and documenting my experience with treatment as well as giving my insight and perspective on various topics of mental health. I am blessed to say that I have slowly, over the last 10 months, been improving and becoming more stable which I never thought to be possible. My low T manifested itself in the form of Major depression, anxiety, and depersonalization/ derealization for over a year. Gaining some mental stability back is nothing short of a miracle as I was near death for what felt like forever. I do not consider myself to be totally healed yet but I am closer now then ever before and aim to use what I have been through to help or at least offer support to others in need. I was able to successfully come off my Seroquel and am now tapering off my final antidepressant medication Pamelor.

Day 1 Testosterone Therapy Journey is it a fix for anxiety/depression
 
12:48
Since I was a young teenager I’ve been on anti-depressants for anxiety/depression. They help a little bit but never quite relieved me from my issues. Not to mention they came with a handful of side effects. I was put on testosterone at 23 after finding out that my testosterone levels were extremely low. I quickly began noticing improvement in my mood, my anxiety, energy, levels and libido. I thought it had more to do with switching to a new anti depressant which I did at the same time. I switched from Effexor to Prozac, Wellbutrin and the testosterone. I started to notice hair loss 9 months into treatment and wanted to stop to see if the medications were the reason. They weren’t. I needed up back on Prozac and Wellbutrin but never felt as good as I did prior. I did things to try and raise my t levels on my own but still felt lousy. I asked to get back on trt but my doctor wanted to check my levels again. This time they came up at 400 so he didn’t want to treat me even though those levels are very low for my age. I finally found a doctor who is willing to treat me and now I want to make a video journal here on YouTube for myself and anyone that is considering testosterone replacement therapy. Each week I’ll let you know what changes I notice. What symptoms of low t go away and when they go away. Today is day one on testosterone and hcg which me luck and I’ll let you know how it goes.

Drug Free Alternative for Depression -- Light Therapy Tip
 
01:06
If you have seasonal affective disorder, depression or a sleep disorder, pharmaceutical companies have a host of offerings for you. You can try to alleviate depression with Prozac, or Lexapro. You can try Ambien or Lunesta to get a better night's sleep. But these drugs have side effects. Prozac and Lexapro, for example, can cause insomnia. Ambien and Lunesta can cause daytime drowsiness. Avoiding this is just one of the dramatic advantages of bright light therapy. Bright light therapy has been established by study after study as an effective treatment for depression and sleep disorders. A study found that light therapy was just as effective as Prozac but that people felt the effects more quickly. If you're depressed, of course you want to feel better quickly. Talk to your physician about starting bright light therapy as a drug free alternative. For more information on using light therapy, visit our website: http://auroralightsolutions.com/

Former Navy SEAL on Psychiatric Drugging of our Military

Now retired from the military, Mikal works to help Veterans overcome problems suffered in battle without the use of mind-altering psychiatric drugs or psychiatric labels. Currently Mikal is an actor who can be seen in such films as Transformers 3&4 and the web series Black - he uses his acting to help fund and promote his non-profit organization, Vital Warrior. He was one of four individuals who received a human rights award from the mental health watchdog CCHR International, on Feb 1st 2014 in Los Angeles, presented by CCHR Commissioners, Danny Masterson & Jason Dohring.

Serotonin Syndrome: Causes, Symptoms, and Diagnosis
 
11:08
Serotonin Syndrome: Causes, Symptoms, and Diagnosis What is serotonin syndrome? Serotonin syndrome is a potentially serious negative drug reaction. It’s believed to occur when too much serotonin builds up in your body. Nerve cells normally produce serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter, which is a chemical. It helps regulate: digestion blood flow body temperature breathing It also plays an important role in the proper functioning of nerve and brain cells and is believed to impact mood. If you take different prescribed medications together, you may end up with too much serotonin in your body. The types of medication that could lead to serotonin syndrome include those used to treat depression and migraine headaches, and manage pain. Too much serotonin can cause a variety of mild to severe symptoms. These symptoms can affect the brain, muscles, and other parts of the body. Serotonin syndrome can occur when you start a new medication that interferes with serotonin. It can also occur if you increase the dosage of a medication you’re already taking. The condition is most likely to occur when two or more drugs are taken together. Serotonin syndrome can be fatal if you don’t receive prompt treatment. What are the symptoms of serotonin syndrome? You may have symptoms within minutes or hours of taking a new medication or increasing the dose of an existing medication. The symptoms may include: confusion disorientation irritability anxiety muscle spasms muscle rigidity tremors shivering diarrhea rapid heartbeat, or tachycardia high blood pressure nausea hallucinations overactive reflexes, or hyperreflexia dilated pupils In more severe cases, the symptoms may include: unresponsiveness coma seizures irregular heartbeat What are the causes of serotonin syndrome? Typically, the condition occurs when you combine two or more medications, illicit drugs, or nutritional supplements that increase serotonin levels. For example, you might take medicine to help with a migraine after already taking an antidepressant. Certain types of prescription medications, such as antibiotics, antivirals used to treat HIV and AIDS, and some prescription medications for nausea and pain may also increase serotonin levels. Examples of drugs and supplements associated with serotonin syndrome include: Antidepressants Antidepressants associated with serotonin syndrome include: selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), such as Celexa and Zoloft serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs), such as Effexor tricyclic antidepressants, such as nortriptyline and amitriptyline monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), such as Nardil and Marplan certain other antidepressants Migraine medications (triptan category) Migraine medications in a drug category called “triptans” are also associated with serotonin syndrome. These include: almotriptan (Axert) naratriptan (Amerge) sumatriptan (Imitrex) Illegal drugs Certain illegal drugs are associated with serotonin syndrome. These include: LSD ecstasy (MDMA) cocaine amphetamines Herbal supplements Certain herbal supplements are associated with serotonin syndrome. These include: St. John’s wort ginseng Cold and cough medications Certain over-the-counter cold and cough medications that contain dextromethorphan are associated with serotonin syndrome. These include: Robitussin DM Delsym How is serotonin syndrome diagnosed? There’s no specific laboratory test for serotonin syndrome. Your doctor may begin by reviewing your medical history and symptoms. Be sure to tell your doctor if you’re taking any medications or have used illegal drugs in recent weeks. This information can help your doctor make a more accurate diagnosis. Your doctor will usually perform several other tests. These will help your doctor find out if certain organs or body functions have been affected. They can also help your doctor rule out other conditions. Some conditions have similar symptoms to serotonin syndrome. These include infections, drug overdose, and hormonal problems. A condition known as neuroleptic malignant syndrome also has similar symptoms. It’s an adverse reaction to medications used to treat psychotic diseases. Tests your doctor may order include: a complete blood count (CBC) a blood culture thyroid function tests drug screens kidney function tests liver function tests What are the treatments for serotonin syndrome? If you have a very mild case of serotonin syndrome, your doctor may only advise you to immediately stop taking the medication causing the problem. If you have severe symptoms, you’ll need to go to the hospital. At the hospital, your doctor will closely monitor your condition.
Is an Opioid and Heroin Addiction a Symptom or a Disease
 
06:36
Support: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3w193M5tYPJqF0Hi-7U-2g Take Dr. Berg's Body Type Quiz: https://www.drberg.com/body-type-quiz Dr. Berg talks about opioid and heroin addictions and are they really a disease or merely a symptom. When someone is addicted to opioids or heroin or any drug, whats happening is certain neurotransmitters are creating certain effects and sensations like pleasure. This includes dopamine, GABA, serotonin, etc. In fact, the effect of some of these drugs are 10x that of food and sex. This makes it highly addictive. At first the person feels incredible, then the body starts to protect itself and resist it causing a downgrade of it's receptors. This leads to a lack of absorption as well as lack of production of dopamine. Its the neurotransmitter depletion that creates the withdrawal symptoms and the addiction. Certain drugs are then recommended, like methadone. This is replacing one drug for another. It is called Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT). Here's the problem. It comes with a package; first of all, there are massive side effects and a new addiction of this drug. SIDE EFFECTS COULD INCLUDE: -seizures -decrease libido -impotence -weight gain -hallucinations -sleep apnea -vomiting -heart arrhythmia -death (over 3300 in 2015) -suicide thoughts -depression -apathy -panic attacks -paranoia Various organizations will tell you this treatment is effective, it's successful - has a good outcome, but their definition of "good outcome" means you are off the original drug. Okay, then how are you going to get off the new drug? Are there studies that show this is effective, more beneficial that are unbias? When presented with the recommendation of a friend, family member being put on this approach - ask the following questions: -What are the side-effects? -How long will they be on the "Medication-Assisted Treatment" -Where are the actual studies that prove that addictions are a brain disease. If you look at changes of brain chemistry with people with addiction, who is to say that those changes were created by the original drugs and the addiction are merely the longer effects. The problem with treating the addition is you will mask the deeper brain chemistry imbalance. Why not try natural and alternative approaches like amino acid therapy for addition. Do your research. Here are the following amino acids that potentially could support healthy brain function: *5-HTP *L-Tryrosine *L-Glutamine *DL-Phenylalanine (DLPA) *B1, B5, B6, B12 (nutritional yeast) *Minerals and trace minerals The ultimate solution is a drug free body - trying to fix a drug addition with drugs is not the greatest good for one's body.

How Psychiatric Drugs Can Kill Your Child  FULL DOCUMENTARY
 
01:27:32
In the absence of any objective medical tests to determine who has ADD or ADHD, doctors rely in part on standardized assessments and the impressions of teachers and guardians while the they administer leave little room for other causes or aggravating factors, such as diet, or environment. Hence, diagnosing a child or adolescent with ADD or ADHD is often the outcome, although no organic basis for either disease has yet to be clinically proven. Psychiatrists may then prescribe psychotropic drugs for the children without first without making it clear to parents that these medications can have severe side-effects including insomnia, loss of appetite, headaches, psychotic symptoms and even potentially fatal adverse reactions, such as cardiac arrhythmia. And yet, despite these dangers, many school systems actually work with government agencies to force parents to drug their children, threatening those who refuse with the prospect of having their children taken from the home unless they cooperate. As a Martial Arts teacher for over 30 years I have seen the damage caused by pharmaceutical and street drugs on relatives and on a great number of students in Brazil and specially here in the USA where the Big Pharma rules. People are being bullied by these corporations of drug-dealers into submission.
