  1. Proverbs 18:14 A man’s spirit can endure sickness, but who can survive a broken spirit?

    Nope we don’t have spirits anymore everything is now “broken brains” , Psychiatry views man as entirely physical being composed of soups and sparks and rejects the dichotomous nature of man possessing both body and soul.

    The word “psychiatry” comes from the Greek and literally means, “doctor of the soul”, yet psychiatrists and the DSM-V actually mock the idea that man has a soul or a spirit. So psychiatrists are doctors of something they do not even believe in and while posing as “authorities” on the mind and mental health, psychiatry has no scientific basis for any of its treatments or methods.

    HOW FAKE NEWS WORKS:

    Headline: How severe, ongoing stress can affect a child’s brain.

    “The approach starts with the premise that extreme stress or trauma can cause brain changes”

    Premise – a previous statement or proposition from which another is inferred or follows as a conclusion. 2. Base an argument, theory, or undertaking on.

    “Nelson’s research on neglected children in Romanian orphanages ‘suggests’ that early intervention might reverse damage from toxic stress.”

    “Experiments in animals and humans also ‘suggest’ persistent stress ‘may’ alter brain structure”

    (Experiments in Animals- Just imagine the torture all the poor creature did was exist and these crackpots torture it then kill and dissect its brain.)

    How Severe, Ongoing Stress Can Affect a Child’s Brain: There is no scientific evidence to prove this: it always remains what the “fine print” in the studies tell you: “suggests,” “may” and “it is hoped.”

    Fake news psychiatric propaganda.

    So now MIA promotes all the broken brain psych industry BS and animal experimentation “its for the children”.

    I see whats going on here, its incrementalism or gradualism starting off hitting the industry real hard to attract people who were harmed and want to fight back and gradually change the agenda to the children have broken brains and all the crap the industry has always been saying.

    I want to believe this article was put here for us to pull apart and expose.

    Title of this thing should have been – The Psych Industry Pushing Same Broken Brain Crap and Torturing Innocent Animals.

    That would be real news.

    And how EXACTLY did they “stress” the animals, how is that done ?

    • And how EXACTLY did they “stress” the animals, how is that done ?

      Through torture, of course. How else? I’m sure that the researchers have a benign sounding euphemism for it, though, that they can use when their children ask them what they do at work.

      Anyway, I wish that MiA hadn’t started reprinting headlines to linked news stories word-for-word without quotation marks. There was recently one with “mental illness” in the headline and it was reprinted here verbatim as if MiA is totally okay with that kind of terminology.

  2. I think the comparison of toxic stress to actual diseases is a bad idea. In a disease, there is some process that affects the cells and what they do, but stress is a cognitive thing, so the brain is forming memories, ways to cope, and cognitive defensive reactions. The brain is not damaged like in a disease, there are new connections and additions to fend off the threats that come from dysfunctional environments. We should keep making the distinction that drugs are for actual diseases, but for mental states, we need something else, because those are not actual diseases.
