In the future, how will healthcare providers assess and treat the millions deemed to be mentally ill? As Don Draper said on Mad Men, “The future is something we haven’t even thought of yet.” Whether you are a patient, a family member or a healthcare provider, know this. Change is coming. The time to start thinking about it is now.

Do you have concerns about how your loved one is being treated?

Would you like to discover ways to keep a son or daughter out of the hospital and/or jail?

Are you concerned about the effects of medications on your brain or the brain of your loved one?

Do you ever wonder why the biology of “mental“ diagnoses seems to be ignored so often?

Would you like to track the progress of your loved ones through lab tests?

Would you like to help a loved one or a close friend dealing with mental illness?

Would you like to keep your brain from “screaming Ouch!”

Are open to new perspectives?

Are you willing to work hard to find answers?

Are you ready to learn more about the history of mental disorders?

This site is about the struggle many of us face trying to understand and respond to mental illness. It is also about the forces that keep us from moving not just beyond mental illness, but a litany of other health challenges, including COVID-19.

Whether the subject is Lyme assessment and treatment, alternative solutions to mental illness, Burzynski’s cancer treatment, or COVID-19 treatment, in my three books, and now my blogs, the theme is the same. Power, not utility dictates what happens. Out lives are controlled far too much by forces over which we have no control.   As long as the FDA, CDC, NIH, Big Pharma and media maintain their hegemony, the public’s medical needs will continue to be bypassed in the pursuit of profits. On the COVID issue alone, hundreds of thousands could have been saved with an early outpatient treatment program. But, like  in the time of Semmelweis, when the professionals simply couldn’t admit they were killing patients with unwashed hands, today the medical establishment can’t realize that they are committing crimes against humanity with their nihilistic “wait until you turn blue” approach to treatment.
