[AlternativeAnswers] Dr Bate's newsletter 12/16/12 - DSM Failure

*This is a reprint from Natural News. It is so true that I simply had to
use it instead of my editorial. It seems that the only value in any DSM
diagnosis is for collecting insurance payments, not any value at all in
actual diagnosing for treatments any more.
Phil Bate Phd
*Psychiatry goes insane:
Every human emotion now classified as a mental disorder in new psychiatric
manual DSM-5

(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.

This is called *quack science* and circular reasoning, yet it's indicative
of the entire industry of psychiatry which has become such a laughing stock
among scientific circles that even the science skeptics are starting to
turn their backs in disgust. *Psychiatry is no more "scientific" than
astrology or palm reading*, yet its practitioners call themselves "doctors"
of psychiatry in order to try to make quackery sound credible.

How modern psychiatry really worksHere's how modern psychiatry really
operates: A bunch of self-important, overpaid intellectuals who want to
make more money<http://www.naturalnews.com/038322_DSM-5_psychiatry_false_diagnosis.html#>invent
a fabricated disease that I'll call "Hoogala Boogala Disorder" or

By a show of hands, they then *vote into existence* whatever "symptoms"
they wish to associated with Hoogala Boogala Disorder. In this case, the
symptoms might be *spontaneous singing* or *wanting to pick your nose from
time to time*.

They then convince teachers, journalists and government regulators that
Hoogala Boogala Disorder is real -- and more importantly *that millions of
children suffer from it!* It wouldn't be compassionate not to offer all
those children *treatment*, would it?

Thus begins the call for "treatment" for a completely fabricated disease.
From there, it's a cinch to get Big Pharma to fabricate whatever scientific
data they need in order to "prove" that speed, amphetamines, pharmaceutical
crack or whatever poison they want to sell "reduces the risk of Hoogala
Boogala Disorder."

Serious-sounding psychiatrists -- who are all laughing their asses off in
the back room -- then "diagnose" children with Hoogala Boogala Disorder and
"prescribe" the prescription drugs that claim to treat it. For this action,
these psychiatrists -- who are, let's just admit it, dangerous child
predators -- earn *financial kickbacks from Big Pharma*.

In order to maximize their kickbacks and Big Pharma freebies, groups of
these psychiatrists get together every few years and *invent more
fictitious disorders*, expanding their fictional tome called the DSM.

The DSM is now larger than ever, and it includes disorders such as
"Obedience Defiance Disorder" (ODD), defined as refusing to lick boots and
follow false authority. Rapists who feel sexual arousal during their raping
activities are given the excuse that they have "Paraphilic coercive
and therefore are not responsible for their actions. (But they will need
medication, of course!)

You can also get diagnosed with "Hoarding Disorder" if you happen to
stockpile food, water and ammunition, among other things. Yep, being
prepared for possible natural disasters now makes you a
mental<http://www.naturalnews.com/mental.html>patient in the eyes of
modern psychiatry (and the government, too).

Former DSM chairperson apologizes for creating "false epidemics" Allen
Frances chaired the DSM-IV that was released in 1994. He now admits it was
a huge mistake that has resulted in the mass overdiagnosis of people who
are actually quite normal. The DSM-IV "...inadvertently contributed to
three false epidemics -- attention deficit
autism and childhood bipolar disorder," writes Allen in an LA Times opinion

He goes on to say:

*The first draft of the next edition of the DSM ... is filled with
suggestions that would multiply our mistakes and extend the reach of
psychiatry dramatically deeper into the ever-shrinking domain of the
normal. This wholesale medical imperialization of normality could
potentially create tens of millions of innocent bystanders who would be
mislabeled as having a mental disorder. The pharmaceutical industry would
have a field day -- despite the lack of solid evidence of any effective
treatments for these newly proposed diagnoses.*

All these fabricated disorders, of course, result in a ballooning number of
false positive. As Allen writes:

*The "psychosis risk syndrome" would use the presence of strange thinking
to predict who would later have a full-blown psychotic episode. But the
prediction would be wrong at least three or four times for every time it is
correct -- and many misidentified teenagers would receive medications that
can cause enormous weight gain, diabetes and shortened life expectancy.*

But that's the whole point of
*To prescribe drugs to people who don't need them.* This is accomplished
almost entirely by diagnosing people with disorders that don't exist.

And it culminates in psychiatrists being paid money they never earned (and
certainly don't deserve.)

Imagine: An entire industry invented out of nothing! And yes, you do have
to *imagine* it because nothing inside the industry is actually real.

What's "normal" in psychiatry? Being an emotionless zombieThe only way to
be "normal" when being observed or "diagnosed" by a psychiatrist -- a
process that is entirely subjective and completely devoid of anything
resembling actual science -- is to *exhibit absolutely no emotions or
behavior whatsoever*.

A person in a coma is a "normal" person, according to the DSM, because they
don't exhibit any symptoms that might indicate the presence of those
God-awful things called *emotions* or *behavior.*

A person in a grave is also "normal" according to psychiatry, mostly
because dead people do not qualify for Medicare reimbursement and therefore
aren't worth diagnosing or medicating. (But if Medicare did cover deceased
patients, then by God you'd see psychiatrists lining up at all the
cemeteries to medicate corpses!)

It's all a cruel, complete hoax. *Psychiatry should be utterly abolished
right now* and all children being put on mind-altering drugs should be
taken off of them and given good nutrition instead.

When the collapse of America comes and the new society rises up out of it,
I am going to push hard for *the complete abolition of psychiatric
"medicine"* if you can even call it that. Virtually the entire industry is
run by truly mad, power-hungry maniacs who use their power to victimize
children (and adults, too). *There is NO place in society for distorted
psychiatry based on fabricated disorders*. The whole operation needs to be
shut down, disbanded and outlawed.

The lost notion of normalcy Here are some simple truths that need to be
reasserted when we abolish the quack science industry of psychiatry:

Normalcy is not achieved through medication. Normalcy is not the absence of
a range of emotion. Life necessarily involves emotions, experiences and
behaviors which, from time to time, step outside the bounds of the mundane.
This does not mean people have a "mental disorder." It only means they are
not biological robots.

Nutrition, not medication, is the answer*Nutritional deficiencies*, by the
way, are the root cause of nearly all "mental illness." Blood sugar
imbalances cause brain malfunctions because the brain runs on blood sugar
as its primary energy source. Deficiencies in zinc, selenium, chromium,
magnesium and other elements cause blood sugar imbalances that result in
seemingly "wild" emotions or behaviors.

Nearly everyone who has been diagnosed with a mental disorder in our modern
world is actually suffering from nothing more than *nutritional imbalances*.
Too much processed, poisonous junk food and not enough healthy superfood
and nutrition. At times, they also have metals poisoning from taking too
many vaccines (aluminum and mercury) or eating too much toxic food (mercury
in fish, cadmium, arsenic, etc.) Vitamin D deficiency is ridiculously
widespread, especially across the UK and Canada where sunlight is more
difficult to achieve on a steady basis.

But the reason nutrition is never highlighted as the solution to mental
disorders and illness is because *the pharmaceutical industry only makes
money selling chemical "treatments"* for conditions that are given
complicated, technical-sounding names to make them seem more real. If food
and nutritional supplements can keep your brain healthy -- and believe me,
they can! -- then who needs high-priced pharmaceuticals? Who needs
high-priced psychiatrists? Who needs drug reps? Pill-pushing doctors? And
Obamacare's mandatory health insurance money confiscation programs?

Nobody needs them! This is the simple, self-evident truth of the matter:
Our society would be much happier, healthier and more productive tomorrow
if the entire pharmaceutical industry and psychiatry industry simply
vanished overnight.

With the DSM-5 <http://www.naturalnews.com/DSM-5.html>, modern-day
psychiatry has made a mockery of itself. What was once viewed as
*maybe*having some basis in science is now widely seen as
*hilarious quackery*.

Psychiatry itself now appears to be completely insane. And that might be
the first accurate diagnosis to come out of the entire group.
