It isn't just psychiatry

I just found this great site on diabetes in which the blog owner has aggressively advocated a low carb diet that has worked for alot of diabetics which is contrary to ADA advice which is to eat lots of carbs and take meds. What a surprise.

 

Anyway, dieticians in NC took legal action against him because he was allegedly practicing without a license. Not sure what the results were.

 

Anyway, it is not just psychiatry that we have to worry about. The drug first philosophy is everywhere in medicine.

PS - We mourn for the fact that people no longer take stands. Well, it looks like this blog owner should give you hope as far as having courage and doing the right thing.

How well I know. I've not only turned against psychiatry but against Big Med and Big Pharma in general.

 

I used to be able to trust my personal doctor, but I no longer do. She's crazy in love with Lipitor, which I believe was the main factor in my depressive crash. The human liver manufactures cholesterol for a reason, namely that our brains are 60% fat and don't function well without a steady, replenishing supply of fats. When my cholesterol dipped to 134, I was terrified. My doctor thought it was great. Uh huh. :mad: I was in the psychiatric ward within a month or two, getting drugged to the gills with Pristiq, Remeron, and Ativan.

 

And the latest medical buzz is that Lipitor now has to carry a warning about diabetes risk. What a great drug! If the depressive effects don't drive you to suicide, the diabetes will get you! WOW!!! Talk about miracle drugs! :wacko:

 

Thank you for this great link - it's an impressive blog!
