What You Need to Know About the Reality of Mental Illnesses
Did you know that psychiatric diseases are voted into existence every decade or so by a specially formed committee? Psychiatrists invented their own book of diseases.
Did you know that every disease in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders (DSM) is invented, whereas every disease that is listed in a pathology textbook is discovered? Mental disorders are for the most part categorized human fabrications that attempt to understand and help those suffering from psychological distress. Or so it’s claimed. One thing’s for sure though, pharmaceutical companies are banking on the ever growing population of American’s with “mental illness”.
The range of “normalcy” grows narrower every decade as the new Diagnostic Manual for psychiatrists is released. With the inception of the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders) back in 1952, there were only 106 mental disorders invented. Now, with the DSM-IV, there are over 300 mental disorders. What’s interesting is that these mental “diseases” were not discovered, they were invented!
A subjective analysis, which is highly arguable by any two clinicians, is all it takes to be diagnosed with a mental illness. Furthermore, a subjective analysis and a vote was all it took to “create” these mental disorders. There are no lab tests, brain scans, X-rays or chemical imbalance tests that can verify any mental disorder. Don’t get us wrong, that’s not to say that people can’t get depressed or anxious, or that people can’t experience emotional or mental distress. What we are saying is that psychiatry, with the help of very powerful lobbying groups, have repackaged these emotions and behaviors as a “disease” and have been granted authority to prescribe and sell drugs.
When a person has a disease like diabetes, he has diabetes regardless of where he is in the world. However, a person that’s considered to have a mental disease in the U.S. can be considered to be a holy person in India. Watch these short clips and you’ll know what we’re talking about.
