Yes, this is a cartoon, but the chap makes the point that more and more Americans are realizing every day: These mental disorders are made up by a group of people who have NO scientific or medical evidence to confirm their invented disorders.
And this group (let's call them psychiatrists and pharmaceutical companies) are making an enormous amount of money putting and keeping kids (and adults) on medications that have horrific side effects and do NOT, repeat do NOT address the cause of the problem.
Of course you do know that a psychiatrist IS a medical doctor. You did know that, right? How many psychiatrists have done blood work on their patients — PRIOR to putting their patients on heavy medication — to determine if there is some deficiency that needs addressing?
How many psychiatrists have checked for allergies — PRIOR to putting their patients on heavy medication — to see if this is a factor?
How many psychiatrists have checked for hormonal imbalances — PRIOR to putting their patients on heavy medication — to see if this is a factor?
Are their nutritional deficiencies? These can cause a wide variety of symptoms, including emotional ones. Are psychiatrists asking about these?
Ever see someone who is feeling down and out come right out of it after getting going with an exercise program? Are psychiatrists asking about this area as a possible solution?
Look, I'm not saying every psychiatrist is a bad apple. See my post on how I view the difference between Scientology and psychiarty.
But I am saying MANY of them are lazy with their approach to mental health through continual medication. The medication can be very harmful and potentially lethal. Recall a commercial for one of the psychotropic drugs and you'll remember that virtually half of the commercial's time is spent warning you of the myriad adverse side effects that can (and often do) occur.
