THE NUMBER ONE THING PSYCHIATRY CAN LEARN FROM SHAMANISM

by Dylan Charles, Editor Waking Times Something important is missing from the psychiatric model of ‘mental illness.’ It’s not a secret or anything, but rather more of an omission. It should be there, but by no accident it’s absent. You see, human beings are multi-dimensional. We are made up of mind, body and spirit. All three are utterly essential components of life, and until the transhumanists figure out how to disembody the mind, our wellness and happiness is fully reliant on the synergistic balance between these three elements. Sure, psychiatry along with the medical sciences has the body well enough figured out. And they’ve produced copious … Continue reading THE NUMBER ONE THING PSYCHIATRY CAN LEARN FROM SHAMANISM

Here’s Why Female Viagra Won’t Work… Again

by Magdalene Taylor The market for products that claim to make you horny is centuries old. Everything from Oysters, to herbs like ashwagandha and maca, to alcohol (but of course) have long been hailed as ways to make both sexes want to have sex. Their mileage varies, however, in terms of effectiveness. Until, that is, Viagra came along in 1998 and fixed that problem. Well, at least for men. For women, the search for a magic pill that inspires arousal has been more complicated. Big Pharma first took interest in sexuality in the 1950s, when frigidity and impotence were added to the first Diagnostic … Continue reading Here’s Why Female Viagra Won’t Work… Again

DETECTING CANCER – CAN YOU TRUST ALL THE TESTS?

by Jon Rappoport , Guest Waking Times  Obviously, a false diagnosis of cancer would be a disaster. I’m not talking about all tests for cancer. I’ve only looked into two. This is what I’ve discovered. There is a blood test, which looks for a bio-marker labeled CA125. There are doctors who will tell you that a highly positive result indicates a high probability of cancer. Imagine being a patient on the receiving end of that news. But wait. If you go to other sources—and no, I’m not talking about alternative practitioners, I’m talking about the mainstream—you’ll get a distinctly different view. How about … Continue reading DETECTING CANCER – CAN YOU TRUST ALL THE TESTS?

PSYCHIATRY AND THE GREAT FRAUD

by Jon Rappoport, GuestWaking Times Warning: Suddenly withdrawing from psychiatric drugs can be very dangerous, even life-threatening. Withdrawal should be done gradually, supervised by a caring professional who knows what he’s doing. See Breggin.com. On the heels of my article celebrating the work of Dr. Peter Breggin, a hero who has exposed the lies of psychiatry, I am reprinting my article, from 2013, which details the fraud. First, a new introduction. The history of Western philosophy reveals two main preoccupations. For many centuries, the theme was: What is Deeper Reality? What does it look like? What can learn from it? Then, in the 19th century, another … Continue reading PSYCHIATRY AND THE GREAT FRAUD

In Terms of Men’s Health, Are Scientists Researching Anything That Isn’t Prostate Cancer?

by Ian Lecklitner Because you wouldn’t know it from reading the news A quick scroll through sites reporting on male health topics — say, the men’s health section of ScienceDaily — will reveal one very important fact: Scientists sure are spending a lot of time researching prostate cancer. On the aforementioned page, in fact, 18 of the 20 stories on the homepage are about prostate cancer (sample selection: “Aggressive Prostate Cancer Eradicated in Mice”; “Metastatic Prostate Cancer Cases Skyrocket”; “How to Fight Side Effects of Hormone Therapy for Prostate Cancer”; “New Mechanisms in Prostate Cancer”; “Detecting Prostate Cancer Recurrence Early,” etc., etc., etc.) Which, I suppose, makes a … Continue reading In Terms of Men’s Health, Are Scientists Researching Anything That Isn’t Prostate Cancer?

A THERAPIST EXPLAINS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN PEOPLE TRY TO QUIT PSYCHIATRIC MEDS

by Alex Pietrowski, Staff WriterWaking Times Trying to kick psychiatric medications is one of those rarely discussed problems with the modern psychiatric business. For all the informative and sleek television commercials and all the simplified explanations by doctors, when someone decides to get off these meds, the experience can be an utter nightmare. Writing for The New York Times in 2015, Diana Spechler spelled out her hellish process in an article entitled, 10 Things I’d Tell My Former (Medicated) Self. As she describes, there is very little support for people who wish to quit the meds and return to feeling like themselves again. … Continue reading A THERAPIST EXPLAINS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN PEOPLE TRY TO QUIT PSYCHIATRIC MEDS
