ANTIDEPRESSANTS SLICE & DICE BRAIN

Imagine a lobotomy...A saw cracking your skull,
followed by a surgical knife slicing and dicing a
large portion of your brain - the portion responsible
for helping you cope with all the nastiness in the
world. You know, things like the exorbitant income tax
which makes you work four months out of every year
just to pay Uncle Sam. Or that invisible tax called
inflation that ensures a lifetime of capitalistic
slavery for you and your children. Or, the millions of
helpless infants who are stabbed with vaccines and
subsequently suffer from autism.
Without the ability to cope, a lobotomy would surely
open the doors to all kinds of craziness from the
nastiness in the world....depression, suicide, and
murder become a reality...And this is exactly what an
SSRI (antidepressant) can potentially do at the
molecular level - remove that portion of your brain
that helps you cope...Maybe that is what happened to
81 year old Jordan Stone.
Thirteen days after taking the SSRI Prozac, on April
28, 2003, Jordan's wife of 56 years, Kathy, found his
lifeless body hanging from a beam in a back room of
their shop. Not depressed at the time of his
appointment, Jordan was given a free sample of the
antidepressant for "chest pains!" Apparently, a pretty
drug rep convinced Jordan's doctor that Prozac could
be used for these types of "off-label" purposes. By
FDA standards, this is totally illegal. But those
standards are never enforced by the consumer watch dog
turned Big Pharma lap dog. Regardless of what they are
prescribed for, a chemical lobotomy is a real and
present danger to SSRI users.
SSRI's strive to increase the levels of a "coping"
molecule known as serotonin in the brain. It helps us
FIND happiness when it's covered in an avalanche of
nastiness. SSRI's attempt to boost serotonin by
"selectively" stopping the "reuptake" of it among
brain cells. This is where the whole SSRI acronym came
from - "selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor." It's
a slick name that seems to hypnotize medical doctors
into prescribing submission, but its a really stupid
Nothing is selective in the body. While trying to
block the reuptake of serotonin, SSRI's can also
prevent its release. The areas of the brain
responsible for release and reuptake are so damn
similar (after all, they work on the same molecule)
that an SSRI isn't smart enough to understand which
one it is supposed to work on. So it does what any
dumb drug would do, it blocks both. The end result: no
coping molecules in the brain. Deep sadness, fear or
anger can set in. This was observed in the early
studies performed on SSRI's, but test subjects were
allowed to drop out or mask the pain that comes with a
chemical lobotomy using pain killers and/or muscle
relaxants. This served as an easy way for Big Pharma
to hide the detrimental effects of SSRI's - FDA
approval ensued, and so has the ripple effect of
Truth doesn't stay hidden forever. FDA is proposing a
"black box" warning to outline the risk of suicide
among all antidepressant's such as Lexapro, Paxil,
Prozac and Zoloft. If it were a nutritional
supplement, jail time would result for
manufacturers...But not for Big Pharma, they just get
a "black box" warning on their products...Watch dog
turned lap dog.
SSRI's block another coping molecule in the brain,
dopamine. It's the molecule that lets you FEEL
happiness. When you make love to your wife, win a
marathon, or tell your micro-managing boss at work to
shove it, dopamine yields the feelings of love,
accomplishment and victory. It's also the molecule
that keeps you protected from Parkinson's disease.
Aside from being a zombie, the Harvard School of
Public Health recently warned that due to lack of
dopamine, people taking antidepressants are nearly
twice as likely to suffer from Parkinson's compared to
those not taking them.
By removing serotonin and dopamine from the brain,
users can't FIND or FEEL happiness courtesy of a
lobotomy - minus the saw and surgical knife. Instead,
they become buried in the avalanche of nastiness...And
if you can't find or feel happiness in life, what's
the point? What's gonna stop you from snapping your
neck or spraying bullets on your classmates?
Thanks to pretty drug reps, off-label drug pushing and
the FDA approval of antidepressants, chemical lobotomy
and its ripple effect is here, but not here to stay...
if the People's Chemist has anything to say about it.
Use Mother Nature in place of dangerous drugs.
Supplements that aid in a chemical process known as
"methylation" help coping: folic acid,
trimethylglycine and methylsulfonyl methane are among
them. These vital substances can be obtained naturally
from whey isolate protein, spinach, sunflower seeds,
shellfish, and beets. For severe depression, the
essential amino acid and natural serotonin booster
L-tryptophan (not 5-HTP) is a much safer alternative
than SSRI's. It is readily available and it won't
accidentally remove your coping skills and throw you
into suicide or rage. Exercise and minimizing sugar
are of course vital lifestyle habits for ensuring
proper state of mind. Send an email to

Avoiding drugs and relying on Mother Nature to help us
cope will ensure that we rise above the nastiness in
the world and strive to and make it a better place…We
can start by saying no to prescription drugs,
