    I think since a GERMAN PSYCHOLOGIST "chimed in" I think that he has a bone to pick with the older medical art of PSYCHAITRY.

    .gov hires more psychologists CHEAPER than hiring one psychiatrist. Psychologists use to have to work UNDER a Psychiatrist and the Psychiatrist would be the one who would be responsible for prescribing the true mood / mental altering drugs and long term treatments.
    Psychologist would handle group therapy sessions.
    I view Psychologist as I do Social Workers - Make Work Professions - Claim to Identify a Disorder ( MSW - problem) then offer to "treat it" .

    Psychologists have a box or boxes for EVERY type of individual in the World. Even if you have zero psychological issues they have a term for that too. aka - Make Work.

    Perhaps, however, The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders stands as proof positive that the "profession" of psychiatry is pure, unadulterated, 100% bullshit.

    This does not mean that some people don't need mental help. It simply means that psychiatry as is practised today is NOT the means of getting that help.

    Psychology chases the same witches and demons.
    I had an aunt who began having mental issues.
    A psychiatrist ordered blood work after she had no changes under her psychologist treatment and therapies.

    Come founded out due to obsession with eating hotdogs her levels were outside of normal ranges. The psychiatrist told her to eat bananas, if she drank soft drinks to drink Coca-Cola, and placed her on Lithium for a time being.
    His treatment and protocol worked for her.

    Of the Pair-a-Docs ( see the play on the word) I trust a psychiatrist over psychologist. IMO

    4 Worst Liver Habits | Tylenol and 3 Others Damage Your Liver: Thomas DeLauer
    Thomas DeLauer



    Published on Apr 3, 2017
    Health and Business Consulting: http://www.ThomasDeLauer.com

    4 Worst Liver Habits | Tylenol and 3 Others Damage Your Liver: Thomas DeLauer

    1) Too much self-medication

    One of the main functions of the liver is to break down substances that we take by mouth, including medications, herbs and supplements.

    This process usually takes place efficiently and without causing any harm. When new medications are developed, they are extensively tested to make sure they are safe before being approved for general use.

    Acetaminophen, when used as directed, is extremely safe even for people with liver disease. However, taking too much acetaminophen at once, or taking a high dose of acetaminophen continuously over several days can cause damage to the liver.

    How it Damages the Liver

    A dose of Tylenol is absorbed by the gastrointestinal system and released into the bloodstream, where it alleviates pain and symptoms of fever. The liver filters the blood, which is responsible for metabolizing Tylenol into compounds that can be excreted by the body.

    About 90% is metabolized into harmless substances and excreted in the urine by the kidneys. Another 2% is removed without being metabolized. Between 5-10% is metabolized into a toxic compound called N-acetyl-p-benzoquinoeimine (NAPQI).

    Normally, the liver can safely remove NAPQI by combining it with gluthathione and converting it into a water-soluble product that is excreted in bile.

    However, after an overdose, the liver does not have enough gluthathione to combine with the NAPQI. Excess amounts of the toxic chemical cause rapid cell death, necrosis, tissue damage, and potentially deadly acute liver failure. (1,2,3)

    2) Alcohol abuse

    The liver can only handle a certain amount of alcohol at any given time, so if you drink more than the liver can deal with by drinking too quickly, or drinking too much, your liver cells struggle to process it.

    When alcohol reaches the liver, it produces a toxic enzyme called acetaldehyde, which can damage liver cells and cause permanent scarring.

    3) Smoking

    Though cigarette smoke does not directly come into contact with the liver, it does indirectly affect the liver.

    The chemicals in cigarette smoke eventually make their way to the liver. These chemicals cause oxidative stress on the liver, which leads to damage to the liver cells and fibrosis.

    Oxidative stress is involved in the aging of all the organs of the body. Oxidation produces free radicals that damage the cells of the body.

    4) Lack of Sleep

    If you want to keep your body — and particularly your liver – in good condition, it is important that you get enough sleep.

    During sleep, the body repairs and renews its cells, so lack of sleep will interfere with that. In turn, if the liver cannot repair and renew itself as you sleep, it can’t function properly when you’re awake.

    A study published in the Journal of Anatomy found that sleep deprivation can cause oxidative stress to the liver.
    It was found that livers weren’t processing fat efficiently and instead allowed fat to accumulate (which proves that the body cannot function well without a properly working liver) (8)

    Fluoroquinolones - Class of antibiotics (see: Cipro, Levaquin, etc.). Known by FDA to be EXTREMELY dangerous to human health

    “This antibiotic will ruin you” – A Woman Had to Undergo 20 Surgeries to Repair Damage This Common Drug Caused. (FDA issued a warning too late…) | AltHealthWorks.com

    Excerpt from article:

    Fluoroquinolones: The Most Dangerous Common Antibiotics on The Market

    Fluoroquinolones is a class of antibiotics that can easily take the title of the most dangerous antibiotics available on the market.

    These include:

    -ciprofloxacin (Cipro)
    -levofloxacin (Levaquin)
    -moxifloxacin (Avelox)
    -ofloxacin (Floxin)
    -gemifloxacin (Factive)
    -plus generic brands

    On July 26, 2016 the U.S. Food and Drug administration (FDA) revised the warning for these antibiotics to the strongest possible FDA warning.

    “These medicines are associated with disabling and potentially permanent side effects of the tendons, muscles, joints, nerves, and central nervous system that can occur together in the same patient.”

    This serious warning was due to fluoroquinolones’ seriously side effects and damage to:

    Central nervous system: nerve damage, hallucinations, brain fog, psychosis, loss of memory, anxiety, depression, confusion, suicidal thoughts, and even personality changes

    Musculoskeletal and peripheral nervous system: tendon rupture, tendinitis, numbness and tingling in arms and legs, muscle weakness and pain, joint pain and swelling

    Visual system: retinal detachment

    Renal system: kidney failure

    Other body systems: skin rash, sunburn, abnormal heart beat, severe diarrhea

    Many studies back up the warning:

    Fluoroquinolone antibiotics have been associated with Achilles tendinitis and rupture in reports as early as 1992.

    A 2010 report concluded that fluoroquinolones are associated with many musculoskeletal complications involving tendon, cartilage, bone, and muscle that are often underreported.

    A 2003 review connected fluoroquinolones to tendon injuries, especially in patients with other existing health issues.

    Top 3 Drinks for Fat Loss and Digestion | Apple Cider Vinegar for Metabolism: Thomas DeLauer
    Thomas DeLauer



    Published on Apr 27, 2017
    Top 3 Drinks for Fat Loss and Digestion | Apple Cider Vinegar for Metabolism: Thomas DeLauer

    Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar

    The benefits of apple cider vinegar come from its powerful healing compounds, which include acetic acid, magnesium, probiotics, and polyphenols.

    Acetic Acid

    Apple Cider vinegar contains acetic acid, which is a synthetic carboxylic acid with antibacterial and antifungal properties.

    Weight loss/Metabolism

    A study published in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry, mice fed a high-fat diet along with acetic acid -- vinegar's key component -- developed up to 10% less body fat than control rodents.

    Zevia

    Zevia is an all-natural zero calorie soda made without artificial sweeteners, is non-GMO, kosher, gluten-free, vegan and contains no colors, dyes or phosphoric acid.

    Considered all-natural as it uses Stevia as a sweetener.

    Regulate Blood Sugar/Glucose

    An article published in Journal of Dietary Supplements evaluated how stevia affects diabetic rats. It was discovered that rats treated with 250 and 500 milligrams every day “significantly” reduced fasting blood sugar levels and balanced insulin resistance, and triglycerides.

    Matcha Green Tea

    Matcha Green Tea is the highest quality powdered green tea available. Made from the nutrient-rich young leaves picked from the tips of shade-grown Camellia sinensis plants, Matcha Green Tea is steamed, stemmed, and de-vined before being stone-ground into very fine powder.

    EGCg (epigallocatechin gallate)

    Green tea contains a specific set of antioxidant known as catechins. Among antioxidants, catechins are the most potent and beneficial.

    One specific catechin called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCg) makes up 60% of the catechins in Matcha Green Tea. Out of all the antioxidants, EGCg is the most widely recognized for its cancer fighting properties.

    Reduces Inflammation

    Egcg appears to effectively inhibit TAK1 by blocking its phosphorylation. TAK1 is a mediator of inflammation, and is integral to the activation of downstream mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) in response to receptor stimulation by the inflammatory cytokines interleukin (IL)-1β and tumor necrosis factor (TNF).

    The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences conducted a study and found that matcha green tea may reduce the severity of rheumatoid arthritis,

    During the study, mice were injected with collagen to induce a condition similar to rheumatoid arthritis in humans.

    Of those who drank tea, 44% became arthritic. Of those who didn’t drink tea, 94% became arthritic. (12)

    The following medicines in the article are known generally as gabapentinoids. For those on pain meds these may well be on your prescription regemin:

    Neurontin and Lyrica Adverse Effects: The Saga Continues | Health & Wellness News

    Here's the main point but there's much supporting evidence att the link above:

    Lyrica Use Injures Muscles and Induces Brain Shrinkage
    A March 2017 animal study identified another scary adverse side effect from Lyrica or pregabalin. Animals were given either a single dose or a daily dose of varying amounts of pregabalin for 21 days. Immediately after the three weeks, skeletal muscle tissue was evaluated for injury and oxidative stress. Regardless of the dose, pathological damage was found. The worst damage occurred with long-term use, showing as a significant loss of muscle or muscle atrophy, and high levels of inflammatory cells infiltrating into the muscles. This led to cell degeneration after just 21 days of exposure to the drug. This is yet another example of “a death sentence to cells”. Many with chronic pain disorders are put on this drug for years. What is it doing to this population? The reason for the muscle damage is still unclear, but is the medical treatment causing more harm in the long-run?

    It has been somewhat of a mystery on how Lyrica/pregabalin works. In a recent cellular study, scientists found that pregabalin decreased nerve excitation or nerve firing in the part of the brain called the dentate gyrus and cells called granule cells. In addition, Lyrica exposure caused these granule cells to mature or age faster. The dentate gyrus is in the input region or receiving area of the hippocampus, which plays a critical role in learning, memory, and spatial relationship interpretation. New nerve cells in this area are generated throughout all ages of life, but Lyrica was found to dampen or inhibit the rate of signals in the area and aged the granule cells. When nerve tissue is on-fire with inflammation and over-stimulation, it is one thing to dampen the hippocampus, but what about chronic use or inappropriate use of the drug. Is this a death sentence to hippocampal function?

    Other new information showed that Lyrica treatment shrunk the brain’s gray matter in fibromyalgia patients treated with short-term use of Lyrica. The drug blocked the production of the excitatory neurotransmitter, glutamate. Excess glutamate is certainly problematic in the brain, as it leads to “wind-up” or central sensitization and causes high levels of oxidative stress to the brain. This is felt as pain, insomnia, depression, anxiety, etc. The authors of this study did not seem to find the brain shrinkage alarming, but rather helpful, because of reduced pain and less oxidative stress on the brain, but common sense begs to differ. The concern, again, relates to chronic use, as many fibromyalgia patients are put on this drug for years. It would seem to be a double-edge sword on brain size and stability, as Lyrica causes brain shrinkage and so does the effect of chronic pain and oxidative stress.

    Other adverse effects have been found with Lyrica and Neurontin. A recent review study released found that several of the antiepileptic drugs, like Lyrica and Neurontin were associated with increased risk of infection. Another report showed severe muscle cell death and extreme bruising when Lyrica was combined with the antibiotic azithromycin in an elderly woman. The woman was being treated with Lyrica for chronic back pain for three months and had a single dose of the antibiotic for bronchitis. The combination caused a severe life-threatening illness.

    Neurontin Adverse Effects
    Neurontin also has been linked with vision abnormalities, suicide, sleep apnea, decreased breathing/hypoventilation, respiratory failure, muscle weakness/damage, and worsening of some autoimmune neurological disorders. It is also toxic to mitochondria, the energy-producing life force of our cells. It can adversely raise LDL cholesterol levels, cause sleep apnea, and has led to urinary-incontinence in adults. Once the drug was discontinued, the adverse effects were reversible.

    If you need be on Lyrica, Neurontin or other similar drugs for severe problems, work with your provider to use it for the shortest time and lowest dose possible. Medical journals recommend very close drug therapy monitoring when using Lyrica or Neurontin.

    Water Kefir Versus Kombucha

    Kombucha | Recipe for Weight Loss or Total Myth? - Thomas DeLauer

    Water kefir

    Water kefir is a carbohydrate-containing liquid that has been fermented, such as coconut water, for 1 to 2 days.

    A colony of bacteria and yeast known as water kefir grains (does not contain actual grains) are added to the liquid in order to facilitate fermentation

    Traditionally water kefir is made from water with 8% sucrose, dried fruits (usually figs), lemon slices and kefir grains.

    Kombucha

    Kombucha is a tea, usually sweetened black tea, that has been fermented for up to 30 days.
    ● Less fermentation time yields a more mild kombucha
    ● Greater fermentation time yields a more acidic-tasting kombucha

    A colony of bacteria and yeast which resembles a mushroom cap are added to the tea in order to facilitate fermentation (referred to as a SCOBY - symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast).

    Fermented foods help to keep our gut microbiome diverse and healthy

    Both water kefir and kombucha contain healthy bacteria, however they contain different bacteria which make them serve different purposes

    Kefir is full of lactic acid bacteria (LAS)
    ● Contains more strains of bacteria than kombucha
    ● It does contain acids and enzymes like kombucha, but these are not as strong
    ● Great for probiotic effects

    Kombucha
    ● Contains bacteria, acids and enzymes that help the body break down food
    ● Generally contains caffeine from the tea
    ● Functions moreso as a digestive aid than a strong probiotic

    Those with candida or a bacterial overgrowth should avoid kombucha, however some with candida have found a positive impact with coconut water kefir.

    Coconut water kefir also has the additional benefits of coconut water, such as electrolytes, including high quantities of potassium.

    Bone spurs are another word for osteophytes. This is when the body lays extra calcium in a joint that is having problems. These spurs can irritate and inflame the joint and nerve causing pain and dysfunction.

    Modern Medicine is a Disease

    Doctors, their medical organizations and the great pharmaceutical companies practice a sinister form of medicine that directly causes suffering and pain in people's lives. Thus, I am not surprised when James Howard Kunstler writes that modern medicine is a hostage racket: "Medicine is now a catastrophe every bit as pernicious as the illnesses it is supposed to treat, and a grave threat to a nation that we're supposed to care about. If you thought banking in our time was a miserable racket — which it is, of course, and by "racket" I mean a criminal enterprise — then so-called health care has it beat by a country mile, with an added layer of sadism and cruelty built into its operations. Nobody in the system will say what anything costs and nobody wants to because it would break the spell that they work in an honest, legit business. The services are provided when the customer is under the utmost duress, often life threatening, and the outcome even in a successful recovery from illness is financial ruin that leaves a lot of people better off dead. The system is one of engineered criminality. It is inflicting ruin on millions." The majority of people believe in the medical pharmaceutical con - that the snake-oil remedies with all the side effects will actually cure their ailments. Many people believe this fantasy and are willing to bankrupt themselves and their families in their desperate and misguided need to believe. What they are buying into is disease because modern medicine is a disease, it is a plague and people die right and left from it.

    Even when there is good news, when a cancer patient recovers after being poisoned with chemotherapy and radiation the bad news usually comes later when the cancer comes back or a number of side effects like heart attacks set in.

    Con Men Who Believe

    The religion of medicine is slowly being broken as we discover how fantastic their fantasies are. When we find out that judges at the German Federal Supreme Court (BGH) confirmed that the measles virus does not exist what are we supposed to think about the field of pediatrics and the integrity of companies that make vaccines. There is not a single scientific study in the world which could prove the existence of the virus in any scientific literature. This raises the question of what was actually injected into millions over the past few decades. Certainly nothing good.

    We have doctors who like to inject heavy metals into newborn babies and they are called pediatricians. The Chinese are finding the nerve to finger vaccines as a major cause of Autism, a disease that most often offers a lifetime of torture for families.

    In the first court award in a vaccine-autism claim the family of Hannah Poling received more than $1.5 million for her care, lost earnings, and pain and suffering for the first year alone. In addition to the first year, the family will receive more than $500,000 per year to pay for Hannah's care. In 2002, Hannah's parents filed an autism claim in federal vaccine court. Five years later, the government settled the case before trial and had it sealed.

    Lawyers representing the Cherokee Nation filed a lawsuit against major pharmaceutical companies, claiming they have pumped dangerous painkillers into Native American communities in Oklahoma.

    There is no end to medical madness and all the ways it can come back to haunt you. Cases of hepatitis C in the United States have nearly tripled within a five-year period, reaching a new 15-year high of around 34,000 new hepatitis C infections in 2015, federal health officials reported. Experts attribute the higher rates to more injection drug use during the ongoing opioid epidemic.

    The Americans at the CDC and FDA would rather cover it all up and let the massacre of minds and hearts continue. The FDAhas actually "certified" a 2009 letter sent anonymously by FDA staff to President Obama describing "systemic corruption and wrongdoing that permeates all levels of FDA."

    A 2017 study in Africa compared a DTP/OPV (diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, oral polio) vaccinated group of children to an unvaccinated group. The authors found there was a 10-fold increase risk in death in the vaccinated group that received only the DPT shot, as compared to the unvaccinated group.

    Merck's Gardasil vaccine causes death, collapse and chronic illnessin young women and girls, including a new, never-before described"disease" called Juvenile ALS, a fatal condition in which the nervoussystem is slowly destroyed while consciousness remains unimpaired.

    In the flu vaccine, there is a whopping 51,000 ppb (parts per billion) of mercury in the multi-dose flu vaccine—the most common type of flu vaccine given. How much is 51,000 ppb? It is 25,000 times the legal maximum for mercury in drinking waterestablished by the Environmental Protection Agency. Keep in mind that when you inject mercury, it is 100% absorbed so it is more toxic to inject it as compared to eating it in fish or drinking it in water. Do pediatricians rise up against the CDC and complain?

    For those who think vaccines are safe and pediatricians are saints in white jackets, know that the United States government, as of August 6, 2008, paid out 1.8 billion dollars ($1,804,415,262.35) to parents who brought the cases of their children killed by vaccines or severely damaged (autism) in front of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.

    Corporations that produce drugs that kill and hurt hundreds of thousands of people a year, even when they are properly prescribed, are protected by governments, politicians and arrogant medical officials.

    Obamacare and the entire medical establishment paradigm is to force western medicine down everyone's throat. Karl Denninger says about Obamacare, "But for virtually everyone else these "plans" are nothing more than financial rape." "Every step of the way, the US medical system is greased to perpetuate fraud against taxpayers, against patients, against insurers," writes Mike Shedlock.

    Conclusion

    Contemporary medicine has become the practice of pharmaceutical terrorism. Too many doctors think they know better about how other peoples' lives should be lived or ended. "The FDA has assumed for itself Godlike power, requiring that its official approval be obtained before any substance can legally be used in the prevention and treatment of disease. The FDA's legal-regulatory control therefore is totalitarian and Napoleonic in construct; what it does not explicitly permit as a medicine is implicitly forbidden," writes Sayer Ji, founder of GreenMedInfo.com.

    The worst terrorists are of course those who will not admit they are. Medicine kills more people than any other form of terrorism. Did you know that the CDC is looking for police powers for a mandatory vaccination program? Get vaccinated or go to jail!

    Radiologists administer near lethal dosages meaning they put their cancer patients in front of a nuclear firing squad when they administer radiation as a cancer treatment.

    When radiation therapy is used to treat cancer, a very large dose of radiation, about 5,000,000 millirem (or 5,000 rem) (50,000 mSv) is delivered to the tumor site. Below is a chart that says that each dose of radiation treatment delivers 2,000,000 millirem so with the multiple treatments most patients receive it is easy to see how fast they get up to a fatal dose. Ten thousand mSv is a fatal dose. That is 10,000,000 millirem.

    The general nature of 'evil' is to not have consciousness of the effect that our actions have on the feelings and emotional world of others. Doctors have no excuse for how many people they kill each year, at least in America—statistics are kept and published.

    The destiny of medicine is in the hands of madmen—totally deranged executives of big pharmaceutical companies in cooperation with the FDA and doctors—who are hell bent on getting as many people on their dangerous drugs as they possibly can.

    Pharmaceutical terrorism is a term I coined 14 years ago when I published Cry of the Heart, a book about the tragic situation centering on the childhood vaccination program. That work reached its full expression in The Terror of Pediatric Medicine.

    Dr. Viera Scheibner gives us an explanation of why some doctors have fallen to such a low state. "The inability to listen and observe the truth has created a breed of medical practitioners who inflict illness rather than healing, who become accusers rather than helpers, and who are ultimately just covering up - whether consciously or unknowingly, but with frighteningly increasing frequency - for the disasters created by their useless and deadly concoctions and sanctimonious ministrations." As long as Big Pharma runs medicine, we will never have a health care system that has interest in teaching people how to be healthy. When profits come from sickness, the corporations find creative ways of sickening people with their dangerous drugs, surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation treatments not to mention all their dangerous tests (CAT Scans) where they cannot even control the dosages of radiation most patients receive
