  • Dr. Levine thank you so very much for this well written and much needed article. Alan Frazer hit it out of the park when he said in your article, “by framing depression as a deficiency — something that needed to be returned to normal — patients felt more comfortable taking antidepressants.” RIGHT ON!!! Whomever creates & controls the frame exercises the greatest influence. Big Pharma, the insurance industry & the medical model has created an overarching pathological view of human beings & their human struggles. Anyway, Dr. Levine I hope you continue carrying the torch of truth. I am joining you in this battle for truth.

  • Dr. Brogan thank you so much for this fantastic article. I am writing from both personal & professional experience, and therefore I so appreciate your clarity & detail. As I read in your article, I often read about the need for an alternative or more holistic approach, but rarely do I read about the efficacious use of hypnosis. Medical doctors began using and experimenting with hypnosis since the 1840’s, but it’s “existence” has been around since the dawn of time. Why? Because it is simply a natural, normal human phenomenon that we experience probably 60 – 70% of our day. Anyway, I wish more doctors were courageously honest like you, about the chemical imbalance myth & the dangers of these so-called “anti-depressants”.

    Throughout the historical use of people’s own mind (hypnosis), it has proved to be the safest and on of the most effective approaches to emotional & psychological struggles. We must remember that the client’s or patient’s genius mind that developed their skill (depression, anxiety, etc.) out of their awareness, is the same mind that can just as easily create something different & more useful.

    Again, thank you so much Dr. Brogan. I’m hoping to connect with like-minded MD’s here in MN.
    My 2 cents,
