What is a Psychiatric Patient? A Common Sense Guide to Psychiatry – Part Three

Potentially anyone is a psychiatric patient, even YOU, because every aspect of human behavior is labeled by psychiatry as being a mental illness.A study of psychiatry’s diagnostic manual will confirm this for anyone who cares to look.

Examples of nuances of human behavior and the ups and downs of living re-categorized as an “illness” requiring treatment include:
– Seasonal Anxiety Disorder (feeling “blue” at Christmas).
– Dyspraxia (the tendency of children to be clumsy)
– Sexual Addiction (the tendency of some people to be sexually overactive or unethical)
– Depression (feeling down after a loss, redundancy and so on.)

You are mentally ill if a psychiatrist says you are mentally ill. All that is required for you to be labeled mentally ill is for a psychiatrist to give that opinion. He does not have to produce, and cannot produce, any scientifically proven yardstick or clear consistent definition of each so-called mental disorder. He cannot produce and is not required to produce any diagnostic criteria for adjudging that you have a disorder.

Psychiatrists are busy adding new “disorders” to their list as fast as they can dream them up.

Psychiatrists long ago discovered that they could dream up disorders at will without the need for any true science behind them and get away with it because there was in fact no independent body monitoring and scrutinizing their methods and ensuring they measured up to rigorous scientific standards. Psychiatry had been operating thus with impunity and was consequently thoroughly entrenched, for a hundred years before anyone had the wisdom to subject it to scrutiny and found its scientific credentials to be bogus. (I refer you to the history of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights).

Based on his “diagnosis” of your condition, the psychiatrist can then begin “treatment.” Such treatment nowadays usually involves the administering of powerful brain-altering drugs that do irreparable damage to the brain and nervous system and produce a slew of unpleasant side effects. Such treatment earns revenue for the psychiatrist. He cannot make money unless he diagnoses you as having an illness that must be treated.

If you refuse treatment? Well, that’s a disorder too, requiring treatment.

The psychiatrist can always force you to undergo treatment. He has the legal power to commit anyone for as long as he see fit, simply based upon his unsubstantiated diagnosis (opinion) that it is “for our own good.”

Once you have been labeled mentally ill, you surrender your liberties and human rights to the hands of psychiatry. Essentially you’ve had it.

What happens to a psychiatric patient?

When you become a psychiatric patient you are administered one or more of the following:
Drugs to produce a malleable, zombie-like condition
ECT: Electro Convulsive Therapy, to produce a malleable zombie-like condition
Lobotomy: to produce a malleable, zombie-like condition.

The disturbingly bizarre behavior we commonly see in psychiatric patients is almost always caused by the brain-damaging TREATMENT they have received in psychiatric hands and NOT an alleged mental illness.

Better Than Psychiatric Drugs, Part One: Do We Actually NEED Mind-Altering Drugs?

Somewhere back in the middle ages. the use of leeches to cure physical ailments must have begun its demise with a similar question to the one posed by the title of this essay. One day, someone looked at the state of medicine, took on board new advances and discoveries and asked the question: do we actually NEED leeches at all? Until that time “everybody knew” that leeches cured illness despite the fact that there was no evidence they did anything at all except leave an alreay sick person closer to death by virtue of blood loss. One can imagine that the owners of the leech farms would have been only too happy not to have the palliative effects of leeches called into question.

Indeed, one can visualise the leech farming corporations investing heavily in marketing campaigns to convince everyone of the indispensibility of leeches in preserving human life and rubbishing new “crackpot” branches of medicine such as penicillin and hygeine, just as they rubbished as superstition the herbal cures and remedies that had served man workably for thousands of years. If it ever got out that leeches were not only not needed but acutally made people even more ill, the leech farming corporations stood to lose a packet and as they were far more concerned with preserving a profitable monopoly than advancing the cause of human longevity they were, in my fictitious scenario, mighty determined to prevent real healers muscling in on their racket.

Well, the real healers won that particular battle, much to Man’s advantage. Advances were made in medicine and nutrition that were to the benefit of all, while the leech lingered in the ancestral memory merely as a symbol of past ignorance vanquished.

The battle may have been won but the war still progresses and human knowledge continues to carve out its arduous advance, sometimes against entrenched resistance. One area that is making heroic strides is the field of nutrition, both as it affects physical health and as it affects one’s state of mind and emotional condition. And in its way, lo and behold, stand the modern equivalent of leech farming corporations, the wealthy vested interest groups known as pharmaceutical manufacturers and psychiatrists. They are very happy for one particular “everybody knows” to continue: that psychiatric medications are necessary to cure mental disorders.

Actually, they don’t say “cure” because they don’t believe cure is possible , they say “alleviate” or “manage,” which is another way of saying that the patient needs to take their medications for life and this is immensely profitable. However, the whole “I’ve got a mental disorder but a psychiatric pill will fix me up” routine is a complete myth.

The myth is very profitable for the pill manufacturers and pushers and so they spend more on marketing than they do on research in order to get as many people people as possible popping their pills from as young an age as possible and on every pretext umaginable.

Unfortunately the pills often debilitate, harm and kill human beings and if the psychiatric drugging pandemic continues, with the evident acquiescence of our governments, to cut broad swathes through the citizenry there will be no-one left sufficiently clear of mind and endowed with vigour to run things and the whole civilization will stagger drunkenly into its own fog and, with a stultified whimper, perish. So let’s begin the process of dispelling our very own Twenty First Century leech myth and excamine whether we actually need the psychiatrist’s pills at all.

Better Than Psychiatric Drugs, Part Two: The Wrong Tree.

Clearly people do have difficulty from time to time. But is a psychiatric drug  a remedy for it?Can the person’s difficulty be better and MORE SAFELY resolved than by giving the person a drug? Modern advances in medicine and nutrition tell us very emphatically that yes, there is. We must first ask this question, a question incidently that psychiatry does NOT ask when diagnosing a pateint as suffering from some mental disorder……

What Causes Mental Symptoms? The psychiatric answer is that the person has a disorder or imbalance in the brain or nervous system. It does not really explain how this disorder came about and does not PROVE the existence of the alleged disorder; it merely asserts it. If a doctor tells you you have pancreitis or a broken arm, he does so after taking tests, looking at xrays, analyzing blood and so forth. He arrives at his diagnosis on the basis of the body’s tangible physical evidence. He can point to the XRAY for example and say “There, see? Hairline fracture of the Ulna. Caused when you fell off your bike most likely.”

In the case of a psychiatric diagnosis of, say, “depression, caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain,” the psychiatrist makes the diagnosis without tests or Xrays. He cannot point to anything tangible that proves the existence of “Depression: there, see that?” In other words, the diagnosis is an assumption or opinion and similarly he cannot explain how the alleged disorder came about. Of course, a person may be sad or depressed for very tangible reasons: his beloved grandmother just died for instance. However, his emotions are ENTIRELY NATURAL AND SANE. He has just had a loss, he feels sad.

This is a sane reaction, it is NOT the symptom of a diseased brain or diseased anything. If however, the person feels depressed for no apparent reason, then yes, something is wrong. The psychiatric reaction is “Ah! Diseased brain! Mentally ill! Here’s a prescription….” And off the person goes on a life sentence of psychiatric drugs that usually cause complications and worsening mental difficultes and these things DO damage the brain and nervous system. This is all very profitable for psychiatry and the pill manufacturers and it does save the psychiatrist from having to do any work: a proper examination and tests the way a real doctor would do or some real but time consuming counselling for instance. Hoewever, it does not cure anything. By long experience psychiatry found that its pills did not actually make a person well and often made him WORSE, just as earlier barbarities such as ECT or lobotomy merely killed or maimed but did not cure.

Of course psychiatry was trying to cure something that did not exist (a diseased brain) with a remedy that did not work except to embark the patient on a lifelong career of pill taking. This lack of ablity to actually make anyone well became embarrassing. Therefore. it decided that a cure for “mental illness” was not possible and abandoned all pretence at trying. It progandized the incurability of mental disorders while at the same time expanding the definition of mental disorder to embrace almost every nuance of human behaviour. It touted the idea that mental illness was, alas, in the genes and embarked upon containment or management of the alleged “disease.”

What psychotropic medications do at best and usually imperfectly, is mask or deaden the symptoms. But symptoms of what? Psychiatry has alleged the symptoms are of a diseased or deranged brain and sought to “re-arrange” it with chemicals (and without by the way ever establishing what an “arranged” brain is supposed to look like for each individual patient or how you would even detect an “arranged” condition). It had gotten nowhere.

Human unhappiness, crime, broken relationships and erraticness of behaviour are on the rise. The complications (often manifest in suicide and homicidal rages) caused by psychiatric medication are notorious. Put flatly, in terms of making the mentally or emotionalluy unwell, well again, we have been barking up the wrong tree and the whole approach had been a catastrophic failure. So what is the right tree?

Psychiatry – a Common Sense Guide, Part One: What is Psychiatry?

Psychiatry is a nineteenth century school of the mind, which believed that:

 *Man is an animal.

*All Man’s thought, emotion, inspiration, hopes and dreams result from chemical and electrical activity in the brain.

*Man has no soul.

*The causes of Man’s woes cannot be rectified but they can be suppressed and their symptoms anesthetized by a direct attack on the body, brain and nervous system, through electric shocks and other methods of altering structure, removing or disabling sections of the brain or chemical poisons known as drugs.

When the lack of results achieved by such brutal interventions became a liabilty, psychiatry later added genetics, which asserted that nothing could be done about the mind because human difficulties were inherited: that is, pre-programmed into the person’s genes.

Psychiatry was able to establish itself as an authority on the mind because in the nineteenth century very little was known about the mind. The physical sciences were ascendant and psychiatry was able to make itself sound scientific.

Close examination of psychiatry reveals that its claims to science are bogus. I invite you to verify this for yourself by examining its methodology against the criteria for a true science. However, dressed up in pseudo-scientific trappings, and funded through the decades by governments and corporate/banking interests who have failed to make any such examination, psychiatry clung to its status as an authority on the mind until recent times. This was despite the fact that it was never able to produce workable methods with desirable results, a betterment of Man’s conditions or the resolution of his problems.

Through generous funding by governments and their money masters, the banking elite, and through a huge outpouring of literature and friendly media, psychiatry became woven into the fabric of society. It insinuated itself in various guises and with false claims of expertise into many areas, such as criminal reform, education, the justice system and mental health.

As it did so insanity, violence and crime increased. After nearly two centuries of psychiatric intervention, Man is more troubled and uncertain about himself than he has ever been and violence, crime, insanity and drug addiction are at epidemic levels. The world has become, in other words, catastrophically worse.

If psychiatry had truly provided answers, the opposite would have happened.

Yet despite all this, despite the swathe of carnage it has engineered, it continues to survive thanks to the continued willingness of governments to waste tax payers’ money on it.

How Does Addiction Begin? (Part Two -of The Cycle of Addiction)

Is a person genetically or bio-chemically predisposed to addiction or alcoholism?

Various postulates along such lines have been put forward over the years and debated within the scientific and chemical dependency communities. That this has produced no truly effective solution to drug addiction, VERY poor recovery rates and a WORSENING drugs epidemic tells us the aforementioned communities may have been barking up a very wrong tree.

Another school of thought and another wrong tree, advocates the “disease concept” of drug addiction, which postulates that addiction is an inherited disease and the individual is permanently ill at a genetic level.

In other words, “nothing can be done about it”  because the problem is imprinted in the DNA – the classic psychiatric method of explaining away tax payers’ billions wasted on abject failure to effectively resolve…well, anything!

No conclusive proof for the “gene” theory of addiction has been produced incidentally, although the false datum has crept into the society. One will often hear addicts describing themselves as having an “addictive personality” – usually because that is what they have been told by a therapist who had no real answers. Think about the message hidden in that false datum: “there’s nothing you – or WE –  can do about it because you are inherently flawed. You’re stuck with it pal!” This theory, while it “scientifically” explains away failures has yet produced no successul strategy or workable methodology for actually helping human beings beat drug addiction. If our goal is to do something effective to actually help people, then it has been useless.

Another philosophy argues that addiction is a double-stranded problem consisting of a physical and mental dependency on chemicals, compounded by a pre-existing mental illness that needs to be treated first as the primary cause of the addiction. Such a mental illness would be so-called clinical depression, bipolar disorder, or some other piece of elastically defined psychobabble.

As for psychiatry’s lack of diagnostic criteria or actual evidence for any of the “illnesses” listed its Diagnostic Manual and the quackery that accompanies its diagnosis and “treatment,” please don’t get me started…..I’ll cover psychiatry’s Great Diagnosis Con in a later article.

Suffice to say here, the “mental illnesses” purported without evidence to underlie drug addiction usually require drugs to treat them. The stupidity of using drug to cure an addiction to drugs should be obvious and needless to say that approach has produced – surprise, surprise – not just failure but a deepening drugs crisis!

Yet another philosophy subscribes to the idea that drug dependency leads to permanent “chemical imbalances” in the neurological system that must be treated with psychotropic medications after the person has withdrawn from their drug of choice. Again, a lovely way of milking the addict’s misery of every last drop of profit but only a partial truth.

Yes, extensive abuse of some drugs can cause permanent damage, but PSYCHOTROPIC MEDICATIONS ARE THE WORST OFFENDERS.

The degree of damage that would necessitate, say, tranquillisers to enable the person to function is rare and almost never resuts from abuse of street drugs. In my experience most addicts, although they have harmed themselves through the long-term imbibing of chemical poisons and asssociated malnutrition and so forth, can and do make a very good recovery with the right treatment, such as that provided on the Narconon program. And harmful psychiatric poisons are the very last thing they need.

None of the above, at best  partial, truths have paved the way for an effective solution to the drugs problem.

There is another way of looking at the problem that DOES open the door to a much more effective handling of the problem.

The addict is NOT mentally ill, does not have a brain disease and is not genetically defective:

Addiction begins with pain.

I will cover this more fully in part three of this essay; “Addiction Begins With Pain”

Mental Toughness – “Think of it as part of the act of killing”.

Many people head their articles or book chapters with a quote; this lends gravitas, authority and authenticity to what follows. On the whole I like a good quote, although seeing the same quotes and anecdotes repeatedly, (Edison and his light bulbs, Colonel Sanders and his chickens) starts to grate after a while.

With that in mind, here is a quote that changed my life, from “The Book of Five Rings” by Miyamoto Musashi (translated by Thomas Cleary). Have a read and I’ll explain why.

 “FIVE KINDS OF GUARD”

 “The five kinds of guard are the upper position, middle position, lower position, right-hand guard, and left-hand guard. Although the guard may be divided into five kinds, all of them are for the purpose of killing people. There are no other kinds of guard besides these five.

Whatever guard you adopt, do not think of it as being on guard; think of it as part of the act of killing”.

 I found The Book of Five Rings for the handsome sum of fifty pence in Oxfam. At the time I was operations manager for a media firm. I headed 12 managers and 160 staff across three day and night shifts in a business that ran 24/7 and only closed on Christmas Day. Getting everyone moving in the same direction was often a challenge, as we were a feisty bunch, with sizable egos. There were many heated conversations and passionate arguments. I have to admit that sometimes, I would come out of a meeting and feel as though I had taken a right good kicking. 

When we are under attack, people will look for our soft and vulnerable points; they aim at our emotions and our pride. This can knock us off balance and cause us to feel hurt and angry. If our pride is hurt, we may counter attack irrationally and ineffectively and this will make us look even weaker.

Rather than have a weak counter attack it is better to guard and admit that you may not have all the answers, need more time, even acknowledge mistakes, or oversights and apologise. Do not show anger but strive for inward calm, put your ego on hold and demonstrate unwavering equanimity.

Have patience, have perspective, and have perseverance. Not all conflicts are won in a few easy moves. Do not think of it as being on guard; think of it as part of the act of killing. You will persevere. You will win.

 

The greatest battles are those we fight inside of ourselves, often we need to be on guard. In this case, do not think of it as being on guard; think of it as part of the act of living.

“The Book of Five Rings” by Miyamoto Musashi, translated by Thomas Cleary published by Shambhala.
