Lyrica, Cialis, Eliquis, Latuda, Celebrex, Chantix, America is on Drugs!

Lyrica, Cialis, Eliquis, Humira, Latuda, Celebrex, Chantix, you’ve seen the commercials, over 80 run every hour on American television. America is on DRUGS! Oh no, I do mean literally! 79 million Americans Take Psychiatric Drugs! Worse even, well intentioned parents feed the drugs to their kids – all compliments of a drug-induced bureaucratic system that has gone both wild and unchecked.

(The Eggs Image, you might recall was the famous ad – This Is Your Brain On Drugs. It should be resurrected for the Pharma Industry.)

TV ads for prescription drugs are illegal in most countries, yet legal in two – and yes you guessed it – America is one of the two. I’ll tell you the other one during the show :). TV ads encourage the pharmaceutical industry to cast a wider net for its drugs and to develop drugs that even healthy people would want to take – it’s called ADVERTISING folks. These drugs expose people to unnecessary risks and discourage alternative, nonpharmaceutical treatments. Advertising campaigns also shift the market toward newer drugs, which are more expensive and possibly more risky – but what the hell – they make BIG PHARMA RICH!

And then there’s this notion that – 45% of Americans are mentally ill? At least some doctors seem to think that’s the case. Dr. Gary Kohls discusses that issue as well as the roots of psychiatric problems.

“If you say a lie often enough, people start believing in its truth,”
says Dr. Gary Kohls.

People are buying the drugs. And the IMPACT they’re having on society is not good. Drugs like VIOXX for Arthritis instead of ibuprofen  – but the drug increased the risk of heart attack and stroke. Kaiser Permanente ended up having to pull the ad campaign. The ad exposure led to inappropriate prescribing it was found. People died, and yet the FDA continues to look the other way.

Dr Gary Kohls is a retired family practitioner, who specialized in holistic (non-drug) and preventive mental health care for the last decade of his career. Dr Kohls worked with previously psychologically traumatized, usually malnourished, sometimes seriously neglected, and always over-drugged patients – many who were labeled “mentally ill” erroneously. Over the decade prior to his retirement, Dr Kohls treated over 1,200 patients and developed a unique treatment regimen that we will talk about today.

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Why isn’t the psychiatric profession held accountable for having no science to support even one of their disorders?
  • How can we as a society put blind trust in a profession that prescribes dangerous drugs especially to children based on subjective criteria instead of science?
