Psychiatry goes insane: Every human emotion now classified as a mental disorder in new psychiatric manual DSM-5

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews.com

(NaturalNews) The industry of modern psychiatry has officially gone insane. Virtually every emotion experienced by a human being -- sadness, grief, anxiety, frustration, impatience, excitement -- is now being classified as a "mental disorder" demanding chemical treatment (with prescription medications, of course).

The new, upcoming DSM-5 "psychiatry bible," expected to be released in a few months, has transformed itself from a medical reference manual to a testament to the insanity of the industry itself.

"Mental disorders" named in the DSM-5 include "General Anxiety Disorder" or GAD for short. GAD can be diagnosed in a person who feels a little anxious doing something like, say, talking to a psychiatrist. Thus, the mere act of a psychiatrist engaging in the possibility of making a diagnoses causes the "symptoms" of that diagnoses to magically appear.

Making a Killing...

The despicable behavior of psychiatry...


Psychiatry is Quackery

FACT: Not one Psychiatrist has ever, ever, ever CURED one patient in history. They are all just drug pushers, looking for lifelong customers and making them dependent on psychotropic drugs.

There is honor in psychology through, helping people deal with emotions WITHOUT DANGEROUS DRUGS.

Sorry you have such an intolerant opinion of drugs

I happen to think there is an important role for pharmaceuticals in mental health. It depends on the patient and the situation.

Let me guess - you're a drug rep?

There is no lab work to be done to prove the "imbalances" they claim exist, and no lab work to be done to prove the drugs restore balance. It is all marketing, and malpractice by actual medical standards.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

We didn't know the mechanism of Aspirin

for the first 50+ years of its existence. It doesn't mean we didn't know that it relieved pain, just as we know the anti-depressants reverse depression, and the anti-psychotics treat schizophrenia, et cetera.

I am not a drug-pusher, though I openly promote the use of psychotropics, both for medicine and recreation.

"Delysid" is the trade name of LSD.

The natural health culture loves to get high and mighty about psychotropics, but not everyone who disagrees with you is some Evil Big Pharma Doctor and Shill for the government. That cartoon version only exists in the mind of Mike Adams and his pseudoscience disciples

When we learned aspirin had an anticoagulant effect

we stopped giving it to hemophiliacs. Giving SSRIs to depressed people is malpractice.
Clinical research in the current paradigm is bunk - and I used to do clinical research for pharma.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Yes I know we have talked about this before

You said you became suicidal while taking a certain anti-depressant, and I countered that an anti-depressant helped saved the life of one of my family members and helped me through a tough period.

Neither one of us is wrong.

Giving SSRIs to depressed people is not malpractice per se, but giving an anti-depressant to a patient without closely monitoring their reaction to the drug and progress is. There is a big difference.

Promote psychotropics?

Has it escaped your notice of all the suicide warnings that are plastered on anti-depressant adverts? Why, on earth, would you promote such a dangerous, unproven load of rubbish?

The pharmaceutical industry is the greatest quackery of all. Hands down. Chat over.

They do not treat underlying causes. Only mask symptoms. And often, their remedies are destructive and deadly.

Anyone approving of such barbaric hackery is being intellectually dishonest.

I see you like strawmen.

Did I say I support the irresponsible use of anti-depressants? Did I say I promote giving someone an anti-depressant and turning them loose on the world and declaring them cured?

And all pharmaceuticals are a quack, huh? If you truly have this extreme of a position, I don't think there is any point in even debating with you.

Every drug and every treatment, without exception, has negative side effects. This includes alternative treatments, "natural" treatments, and doing nothing.

Get off your high horse please and stop pretending we live in a black and white cartoon world where medicine is one extreme or the other.

Garan's picture

I voted you up..

..only because you are expressing an opinion that was rewarded with 'no' votes.

I don't think you deserve a bunch of 'no' votes for having a well presented counter-view.


Pain relievers, I agree.


Watch "The Marketing Of Madness."

Psychiatry is the crowning glory of Orwellian-think. They are totally insane. It would not be so bad if they did SOME good, but they do not even offer things like "grief counseling" any more, just pills with deadly side effects.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.
