Depression / Bipolar Disorder Causes and Cures “People are destroyed from a lack of knowledge” Hosea 4:6
Anatomy of an Epidemic: Psychiatric Drugs and the Astonishing Rise of Mental Illness in America Robert Whitaker TABLE 1. Patient-Care Episodes Year Total Episodes Per 100,000 Population ,675,352 1, ,636,525 1, ,682,454 1, ,190,913 2, ,857,597 3, ,194,038 3, ,885,618 3, ,620,628 3, ,824,701 3, ,584,216 3, ,549,951 3, ,741,243 3,806 Data Source : U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, SAMHSA So looking at these numbers with the latest data, we have nearly 1 in 3 Americans who are suffering from a mental disorder in any given year, or over 75 million people.
More than 20 percent of adults in America is on at least one prescription medication to treat psychological and behavioral conditions depression and anxiety in percent of women (or 1 in 4) women are more than twice as likely as men to take medication for anxiety Women more likely to take antipsychotic drugs to treat bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and other serious psychological problems. 22 % increase in prescriptions for psychological disorders since 2001
Unipolar depression to bipolar depression *extraordinary boom in bipolar diagnoses, and that is definitely tied to the widespread use of antidepressants *kids 25% to 50% kids placed on an antidepressant, who stay on that antidepressant for five years, will convert to bipolar illness *adults 25% of unipolar depression will convert to bipolar. *Bipolar used to be a fairly rare disorder but now it’s becoming much more common. *converting from depression to bipolar, treated with a cocktail of medications including an antipsychotic medication *Only about 35 percent of bipolar patients are employed
The effectiveness of PROZAC in long-term use, i.e., for more than 13 weeks, has not been systematically evaluated in placebo-controlled trials. Therefore, the physician who elects to use PROZAC for extended periods, should periodically re-evaluate the long-term usefulness of the drug for the individual patient Body as a Whole — chills, suicide attempt, acute abdominal syndrome, photosensitivity reaction. Cardiovascular System — palpitation, arrhythmia. Digestive System — dysphagia, gastritis, gastroenteritis, melena, stomach ulcer, bloody diarrhea, ulcer esophageal ulcer, gastrointestinal hemorrhage, hematemesis, hepatitis, peptic ulcer, stomach ulcer hemorrhage. Hemic and Lymphatic System — ecchymosis,petechia, purpura. Nervous System — emotional lability, akathisia, ataxia, buccoglossal syndrome, euphoria, hypertonia, libido increased, myoclonus, paranoid reaction, delusions. Respiratory System — larynx edema. Skin and Appendages — purpuric rash. Special Senses — taste perversion, mydriasis, Antidepressants Addictive and Dangerous Although the exact mechanism of Prozac is unknown, it is presumed to be linked to its inhibition of CNS neuronal uptake of serotonin
WARNING: SUICIDALITY AND ANTIDEPRESSANT DRUGS Antidepressants increased the risk compared to placebo of suicidal thinking and behavior (suicidality) in children, adolescents, and young adults in short-term studies of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) and other psychiatric disorders. Anyone considering the use of PROZAC or any other antidepressant in a child, adolescent, or young adult must balance this risk with the clinical need. Prozac Black Box Warning Quote Hippocratic oath “I will use those dietary regimens which will benefit my patients according to my greatest ability and judgement, and I will do no harm or injustice to them. I will not give a lethal drug to anyone if I am asked, nor will I advise such a plan; and similarly I will not give a woman a peccary to cause an abortion.”
is a neurotransmitter responsible for a variety of mind (mood) and body functions. signals between nerve cells Neurotransmitters affect almost ALL of the nearly 40 million brain cells. 1 larger amount of serotonin is manufactured in your intestines in the enteric nervous system, also called the “gut brain.” In fact, 90% of your serotonin supply is found in your digestive tract and blood platelets. Serotonin has a calming effect on your mind (the brain in your head) AND your body (your gut brain or the enteric nervous system lining your digestive tract). Serotonin affects your: Mood Memory Ability to learn Appetite Arousal Aggression Impulse control Serotonin = called the “feel good hormone,” Sexual desire Sleep Some social behaviors Heart Muscles Endocrine system (hormones)

Causes : neurotoxins, GMO, antibiotics, poisons, RX Drugs, Leaky gut not able to produce/absorbe B vit Fat absorption gallbladder function asthma, diabetes, lupus, scleroderma, internal colitis, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, Crohn's disease, Autism
Various animal studies have identified health risks associated with GM food consumption, including: Infertility Immune system compromise Accelerated aging Altered genes associated with: cholesterol synthesis, insulin regulation, cell signaling, protein formation Alterations in: liver, kidney, spleen and gut function
MSG & Aspartame are excitotoxins = excite your brain excitatory neurotransmitter upsets the balance of the natural neural transmitters Msg / Aspartame = food industry can make food with no nutrient value and cheep to manufacture with a long shelf life that you crave MSG is an excitotoxin, which means it overexcites your cells to the point of damage or death, causing brain damage to varying degrees -- and triggering or worsening learning disabilities, ADD, Depression, Bipolar disorders, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Lou Gehrig’s disease and more.
Vaccine-related brain injury Vaccines are made of two components -- the agent you wish to vaccinate against and an immune adjuvant. These adjuvants are composed of such things as aluminum compounds, MSG, lipid compounds and even mercury. Studies have shown that these adjuvants, from a single vaccine, can cause immune overactivation **No studies show the effects of the hyper- sensatization of the immune system to yearly flu shots from 6 months for life
Engerix-B Vaccine Study Adults: 20 ugm = 7 months = 2,284 mIU/ml 20 ugm = 13 months = 9,163 mIU/ml Adolecents: 10 ugm = 8 months = mIU/ml 20 ugm = 8 months = 7,672 mIU/ml Infants: 10 ugm = 4 months = 2,942 mIU/ml 10 ugm = 7 months = 713 mIU/ml “even though the data regarding the relation between vaccination and autoimmune disease is conflicting some autoimmune phenomena are clearly related to immunization” J.Autoimmun feb 14(1) 1-10
molecular mimicry is an important factor in autoimmune disease first published in 1985 and since that time substantial evidence has accumulated causing many autoimmune diseases including: diabetes, lupus, scleroderma, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, Autism “even though the data regarding the relation between vaccination and autoimmune disease is conflicting some autoimmune phenomena are clearly related to immunization” J.Autoimmun feb 14(1) 1-10
UCI Links Processed Foods to Leukemia and Brain Tumors University of California at Irvine children who eat as few as three hotdogs a week had 10 to 12 times higher rates of leukemia and brain tumors. They are chemically treated, dyed and preserved. They have nitrates and nitrosamines.
thousands of cases of polio in India decades ago, with the number of cases dropping to 42 by But it appears that wild polio virus stats have been traded for polio from vaccines and non-polio acute flaccid paralysis (NPAFP). In India, over 47,000 cases of NPAFP were reported in The paralysis symptoms of NPAFP are practically the same as what's attributed to "eradicated" wild virus polio. Apparently, vaccine polio viruses also cause polio paralysis.
over 8,000 AFP cases to have been investigated by the National Polio Surveillance Every one of these AFP cases had tested negative for polio. 60,782 children with AFP cases, which were followed up and investigated by the laboratories in the year Only one tested positive for polio, in Howrah district of West Bengal in January, The child's stool samples were sent to the National Institute of Virology, Pune, and the School of Tropical Medicine, Kolkata; the test results are expected next week.
I'm super puzzled. There are over 60,000 cases of AFP, this means that a huge number of children are paralyzed or partially paralyzed and will be struggling for the rest of their lives. And this is okay? As long as the paralysis is caused by something else and not polio? Do these kids get treatment? Is anyone trying to figure out what is causing all this AFP? Is anyone trying to prevent future cases of AFP? Bizarre situation. Makes no sense at all.

Two-time Nobel Prize winner, and molecular biologist, Linus Pauling, Ph.D.,coined the term "Orthomolecular" in his 1968 article “Orthomolecular Psychiatry” in the journal Science. Orthomolecular medicine describes the practice of preventing and treating disease by providing the body with optimal amounts of substances which are natural to the body.
