Drugs and Mental Health

January 10th, 2013 · No Comments

Read this amazing story about a family trying to make the right choice between conventional medicine and alternative methods to help their daughter diagnosed with schizophrenia live a normal life.

Crystal Kelley felt like she’d been sucker punched.

Alone in an unfamiliar city, the 48-year-old Overland Park woman closed her eyes in her parked rental car and began to cry. This couldn’t be happening. Not after all she’d been through.

But by all indications, she and her 28-year-old mentally ill daughter, Caresa Vance, had flown a thousand miles from Kansas City to Phoenix for nothing. They made the trip after a social worker assured them that Vance could transfer from Osawatomie State Hospital to the state hospital in Arizona — only to be turned away.

It was supposed to be Vance’s happy ending, the first step toward alternative treatment that held out hope for a full recovery from schizophrenia.

Now that was in question.

“Mom!” her panicked daughter blubbered. “I can’t go back to Osawatomie. I’ll kill myself!”

“You’re not going back,” Kelley said, resolutely.

Brave words. But Kelley knew if her daughter returned to Kansas, she’d have to go back.

Court order.

Kelley couldn’t let that happen. Still, she didn’t know a soul in Phoenix. And while Vance wasn’t hallucinating at the moment, it was only a matter of time before the witches’ brew of psychotropic drugs swirling in her brain again would cause her to hear voices and see demons. Doctors meant well. They just didn’t realize that the drugs that had helped countless other schizophrenics only made Kelley’s daughter worse.

Kelley put her arm around her shaking daughter.

“My God,” she thought. “What am I going to do now?”

Mass Killings and Psychotropic Drugs

January 5th, 2013 · No Comments

Here are excerpts from an article by alternative drug addiction specialist Dr C.E. Gant recently published by the American Thinker.

The practice of psychiatry has become in many cases nothing more than a license to distribute powerfully addictive, brain-damaging drugs to our children.

And where illegal drugs such as cocaine and “speed” are often cited for their negative effects, in fact, among the drugs that are often prescribed for ADHD, Ritalin is chemically similar to cocaine and Adderall is a mix of four powerful amphetamines. We’re addicting more than ten percent of our children — overwhelmingly boys — to these drugs!
