  • James,

    I’ve heard good things about ‘The Candida Cure’ for autoimmune/inflammatory disease in general; I’m definitely researching it further. I’ve also started seeing a naturopathic doctor for orthomolecular medicine. You are absolutely right about needing to advocate for ourselves; many clinicians don’t have a real understanding of what “informed consent” is, particularly in psychiatry. “Take this pill, it’s good for depression, anxiety, etc.” When I ask about side effects, the response I got was, “Well, don’t worry about that, because then you think you’re going to have them”. My reply: You mean the nocebo effect? I am a researcher you know, I’m familiar with the concept. Then you get accused of “interrogating” them when you question something, or seeking information elsewhere. It’s like asking a wizard to share from his Book of Spells: unthinkable! And probably just as much smoke and mirrors, lol.

  • I thought the same thing about the lesions being after effects of the Tortuous Mental Stunting, or at the very least it might have accelerated their progression. 75+ sessions of this barbarism in under 18 months, why not? But, of course why would the FDA, AMA, or the APA concern themselves with that, it’s just my brain after all. It’s a whole new breed of deadly consumerism; Big Pharma/APA has completely co-opted mental health care and tricked the public into believing that the sole path to wellness is through popping their magic little pills or, now TMS; Let non-invasive magnets zap you into bliss, all from the comfort of your doctor’s office! Hell, you can even get it done on your lunch break and be back in time for the 2pm conference call. They line their pockets while we get sicker, need more “treatment”, dole out more money, and it goes on and on.

  • Thank you for bringing this issue to light James.
    I’ve been experiencing TRD for the past few years, and had literally tried every medication out there with no results. Like you, I still fought everyday to go to work and provide for myself and my family despite feeling mentally and physically awful. Of course, all of my physical symptoms had been written off by the medical community as psychosomatic; once they see you’re on psychiatric medications, that’s the common reaction. My psychiatrist recommends TMS, not one, but THREE courses of 36 sessions. Three sessions into the third, I say this is ridiculous, I’m paying through the nose to see you and do these treatments, and I actually feel worse! I’m not doing it again! He’s saying it’s helping me; really, because I’ve never had such horrible cognitive dysfunction in my life! I’m exhausted all the time, My memory is gone, I have dysarthia, gait problems, vertigo, tremors, constantly dropping things, etc. Then he tells me, I’m being “non-adherent” to the treatment plan, and displaying “narcissistic traits”; because I’m challenging a treatment plan that is not working? I go to my PCP explaining my symptoms; he orders a head CT, which shows “cerebral atrophy inconsistent with patient’s age”. Off to the neurologist, MRIs with contrast, and lo and behold, multiple lesions in my brain and spinal column consistent with multiple sclerosis. Maybe if any of these idiots ever thought to listen to what I was saying in the first place, I could’ve gotten the proper treatment 5 years ago.
