  • Thank you, Bruce, for this interview.
    I write from Germany and I am grateful for MIA and every word that clearly says where psychiatry stands and how they build their own incompetence and illusion of magnificence by lies.

    In Germany, psychiatry criticism is as good as dead, in a country that would have had to do everything possible to drive this “part of medicine” to hell after the First and Second World War.
    In these days the Federal Constitutional Court has decided that the fixation of people is permitted only with a judical decision. If the case occurs at night, approval must be obtained “as soon as possible”. The media spoke of traumatisation by this maltreatment, nobody asked for alternatives. The people are fed with “facts”, so they remain calm and do not ask questions.

    So this interview and other articles at MIA are great bright spots for me. I often notice a stone falling from my heart and I can say, exactly, that’s it.

  • Kerstin, thanks a lot for this intensive report with deep insights.

    In the East this process is called “Kundalini Rising”. Kundalini is an energy that becomes active in the body, often very suddenly. The Kundalini process is needed to reach the altered state of consciousness of enlightenment. Unfortunately it is still placed in a mystical/esoteric corner where it does not belong at all. It is time for the West to deal with this energy and use it as another model instead of the psychiatric one.

    It is said that this energy “sleeps” at the end of the spine. When it wakes up, it flows up the spine to the brain. In this way, it burns all the impurities that have accumulated in the human body and mind. Of course this is a picture, the same one as the snake in paradise. Both pictures say nothing else than development happens. A deep psychic development purifying/processing/recognizing/integrating the old terrible experiences and an actual physical development because the nervous system and the brain are actually changed.

    Kundalini is still considered a purely spiritual matter. It is often not said that not only the experienced trauma but a Kundalini rising itself is a traumatic process. It is common that a Kundalini process often runs in phases with different interruptions. It is very unknown that this process is difficult, exhausting, frightening and quite dangerous. What I have read in your report is, you always have developed a wonderful power to come back with your „feet on earth“. You could distinguish between your „psychotic“ phases and „real life“.

    At some point, as you also wrote, there is change, a deep change in the emotions, in the view of this world and in the abilities of the brain, after you were able to “see” the trauma. That is not the enlightenment we usually think about but it is also a kind of enlightenment, that is a better stress resilience and better work of our brain.

    We urgently need people like your supporters who are able to accompany “psychoses” or better said, these processes of tranformation.

    You have done a hard work, my respects.

    In my opinion, a “psychosis” is an extremely difficult Kundalini process. Today I think that the kind of this process has to do with the nature, the severity and the own ability of processing the traumas we are suffering from.

    By the way, already in the 80th Dr. Lee Sannella, asked in his book: „Kundalini, Psychosis or Transcendence“?
    Dr. Joe Dispenza seems to have a first scientific idea, what is happening in a human body, when this energy is working, „Becoming Supernatural“. The only problem we have to deal with, most of the people think, if you do meditation the „good“ Kundalini arises, if you are in „psychosis, you are metally ill. In my oppinion these are the two sides of the same coin.

  • Thank you very much for this article. This is the first time I have read scientifically about PGAD in connection with antidepressants and their side effects.

    For years I have been writing at the German ReGS (Restless genital syndrome = PGAD) forum and try to explain that this is a highly traumatized state of the nerve and endocrine system in humans in connection with altered states of consciousness.
    I estimate that 80% of the members on this forum suffer from depression and take antidepressants or have discontinued them. Some have suffered for years from this condition of PGAD to varying degrees. So now they get antiepileptics, antipsychotics or again antidepressants prescribed by their doctors.
    I experienced similar descriptions at the Dutch „PSAS forum“ and at the American “pudendalhope forum”.

    In Europe, Prof. Waldinger in The Hague is doing research on PGAD, but unfortunately he “believes” in Tarlov cysts, pudendal neuralgia, hormonal disorders and other completely absurd disorders in this context. I wrote him a detailed letter in 2016 hoping that he might change his meanings, but a discussion between a Professor and „simple“ people in Europe about medical questions seems to be impossible.
    So nothing in Europe is moving into a right direction and most of the doctors have no idea what PGAD is and what it means to live with such a condition.

    So I would like to lose some more lines about this for humans unbearable condition.
    All the scientific reports I have read, especially on the Dutch forum, which has listed some articles, deal with a condition and believe in a measurable physical cause. At the same time I assume that nobody can understand what it means to live with such a condition for years. After the depression, which should be “cured” follows a never-ending hyper traumatization. Any kind of sexuality aggravates the condition and drives on the autonomic nervous system. People no longer sleep because of the constant “fight or flight” condition. So they have to use drugs again to get a few hours of sleep, because at some point they can no longer bear the sleepless nights. They lose their work, their social contacts and sometimes also their partnerships. Life is destroyed!

    I have the hypothesis, and I know that it is correct that this type of “sexuality” is happening in an altered state of consciousness caused by trauma and antidepressants. This is also supported by the fact that mild trance states, such as driving a car, watching television, any kind of focusing, intensifies the symptoms. On the other hand, distraction and “forgetting” the feelings almost makes the symptoms disappear.

    I go one step further, it is an energetic problem reinforced by thoughts and the terrible feelings themselves.
    These feelings are not in the body, they are „phantome feelings“. The trauma researcher Robert Scare compares psychosmatic pain with phantome feelings when a limb is amputated. He says, phantome feelings are a prototype of psychosomatic disorders. PGAD produces phantome feelings. The patient with PGAD is feeling a „phantome sexuality“ and „phantome pain“. Trauma researchers also say that psychosomatic pain is more intensive than somatic pain.

    Dr. Joe Dispenza has just published his new book “Becoming Supernatural”. Of course, he’s in the esoteric corner of the bookstore. For me he provides a plausible model of the physiology of altered states of consciousness. It describes a certain way of meditation with a certain breathing. If this path is negatively influenced, such as by trauma and antidepressants, I think it is possible that this energetic physiology causes altered states of consciousness with terrible, negative feelings. Everything has a lot to do with breathing. We know that traumatized people breathe differently. Peter Levine says that trauma is stored in the diaphragm and I say also in the pelvic floor.

    These antidepressants are much more dangerous than visible to others from the outside. They destroy lives and that is not exaggerated because there is currently no possibility of help. Every psychiatrist has to know this clearly and if they screwed up the treatment, they have to tell the patient. Responsibility is the magic word. Anyone who works with mind-altering drugs must know that they can destroy lives. These doctors have to know that PGAD is not a „sexual dysfunction“, it is the destroying of human life from the radix of all life, from sexuality. I want to make a difference because it is not a disorder as usual, it is a daily trauma and torture.

    I am glad that the research continues.
