Psych drugs in the U.S. have a proven, government-audited recovery rate of just .0005%, according to the First and Second Annual Reports on King County Ordinance #13974 (Seattle area). In 2002, out of 9,304 mentally ill DSHS treated with conventional psych drugs, only 5 recovered. If this isn’t a failed approach, what is? But the American Psychiatric Association and their business buddies fight tooth and nail to keep this system in place because it brings in such high profits. They spend an enormous amount of money to have lobbyists in Congress who do nothing but make sure no lawmaker tries to introduce a law to rein in mental healthcare. Currently, there is NO law requiring government oversight over which approach the APA uses on their unsuspecting victims, er, patients. The APA is 100% free to choose any approach they like and what they like is whatever brings them the highest profits. The APA has been fighting restorative approaches such as orthomolecular medicine and homeopathy for about 100 years. I’ve seen both of these approaches work miracles but, sadly, psych patients are denied these wonderful ways to truly heal. If we removed the profit motive, these patients could get well, naturally.
