SSRI antidepressant drugs are a SCAM: The “chemical imbalance” myth EXPOSED

  • 0

You will never hear about it on television “news” because Big Pharma controls all the networks – just look at the commercials to see for yourself – but the fact is that antidepressant drugs like SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) do not work and are based on scam science.


Late last year, research published by Frontiers in Psychiatry revealed that the only thing many people need to beat depression is psychotherapy alone. This, researchers found, is more effective than taking antidepressants, or than taking antidepressants while undergoing psychotherapy.


Not only are antidepressants useless, they are also dangerous, the research further revealed, significantly increasing one’s risk of committing suicide or making a suicide attempt.


“Among the antidepressants, SSRI use was associated with an increased risk of suicide and suicide attempt,” the research states. “In addition, the risk of suicide and suicide attempt between SSRIs and other antidepressants was similar.”


“Clinicians should evaluate carefully their patients and be cautious with patients at risk to have treatment emergence or worsening of suicidal ideation (TESI / TWOSI) when prescribing antidepressants to children and young patients.”


(Related: A comprehensive review found that depression is not caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain as is commonly claimed.)


Especially dangerous for children

These findings are significant, not just because they support earlier findings of the same conclusion, but also because Big Pharma continues to push SSRIs and other antidepressants on Americans, including American children.


Just last month, drug giant Pfizer aired a commercial during the Super(stupid) Bowl offering a tribute to “Science,” pretending as though its drug offerings have changed the world for the better.


The only thing Pfizer has changed is the way people look at health, as well as the overall health of the country for the worse. The truth is that nobody needs antidepressant drugs – what most people need is love, care and proper nutrition to overcome feelings of sadness and malaise.


One wonders why more doctors are failing to read the latest science debunking the SSRI / antidepressant scam, as well as the “chemical imbalance in the brain” myth that has long underpinned Big Pharma’s efforts to profit from depression by selling dangerous snake oil to the masses.


Perhaps it is because doctors themselves are profiting from SSRI and antidepressant prescriptions, many of them well aware of the fact that the drugs are dangerous and useless.


“SSRIs, from what I’ve read, are as additive or more so than nicotine,” commented someone with diagnosed anxiety who learned the hard way about addiction. “Now we have 50+million people totally addicted to a substance that nudges them towards anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation.”


“It is all corrupt. Unless it is a surgery or an anti-biotic (which are totally over prescribed), Western medicine is a sham. Even surgeons see surgery as the solution to all problems.”


“The incentives are all wrong. The problems are generational and trillions of dollars deep. It will take an absolute revolution – almost French Revolution-style awakening of the American public for something to change.”


Another wrote that taking vitamin D – or better yet, getting more skin exposure to natural sunlight – is enough to alleviate most of his depression symptoms, along with regular exercise.


“St. John’s Wort takes care of the rare anxiety,” this person added. “There was lots of trial and error there, but I’ve found what works for me. I’ve tried anti-depressants in the past. They make me alternate between suicidal depression and homicidal rage. No thanks.”


Another, a 54-year veteran psychiatrist, stated that he has been helping people overcome their depression for decades, never once using a drug to treat any mental or emotional disorder.
