Detroit Mother Challenges Totalitarian Police State By Refusing To Give Her Daughter Deadly Antipsychotic Medication

Maryanne Godboldo, a mother from Detroit, never imagined that her decision to wean her young daughter off psychotropic drugs would result in a 10-hour long standoff with police, five days in jail and a six year legal battle with the City and Child Protective Services.

Godboldo’s horrific and painful ordeal began in 2009, after her 11-year-old daughter Ariana suffered an adverse reaction to a vaccine, according to the Citizens Commission on Human Rights.

The girl was born with a defective leg, which required amputation below the knee. Due to her disability, Godboldo homeschooled Ariana, during which time she watched her flourish in a variety of extracurricular activities, including horseback riding, swimming, dancing and piano lessons.

As she grew older, Ariana began to express interest in attending public school. Eventually her mother agreed, but Ariana suffered an adverse reaction after receiving the immunizations required by her school. Several behavioral changes ensued, “radically” changing Ariana’s personality.

Vaccine injury leads to child being drugged with psychotropic drugs

In 2010, Godboldo sought help from Detroit’s New Oakland Center, which provides mental health services to children, teens, adults and families.

imageThey quickly asserted that vaccines were not to blame, and instead prescribed the girl Risperdal, a dangerous anti-psychotic that’s heavily linked to an increased risk of death, heart problems, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, blood disorders, cognitive decline and a host of other side-effects.

Nearly 40 studies around the globe have identified dangerous health effects associated with Risperdal, an antipsychotic drug used to treat bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and children with autism.

Godboldo obtained a parental consent form allowing her to discontinue Ariana’s use of the drug at any time. After observing that her daughter’s condition had worsened while on the drug, she consulted with another physician who carefully helped wean Ariana off the Risperdal.

Nearly 10 months after she first saw a psychiatrist, Ariana was diagnosed with encephalitis, a vaccine-induced condition causing swelling on the brain.

When the New Oakland Center learned that Godboldo had taken her daughter off Risperdal, several therapists and child psychologists reported her to social services, which demanded that the child remain on the drug.

CPS and Detroit police illegally break into mom’s home

When Godboldo refused, social services, accompanied by the Detroit Police, issued an illegal order on March 24, 2011 to enter the family’s home and remove Ariana; a 10 hour standoff with a SWAT team ensued. Godboldo says the police refused to present the “order” they claimed to have, and, as a result, she shut the door and told them to leave.

But they didn’t. Instead, they used a crowbar to break into the home, never presenting a search warrant. Barricaded in the back of her home, Godboldo placed frantic calls to community leaders begging for help.

On March 25, she surrendered her daughter, after police and CPS workers agreed to place Ariana temporarily with a family member, promising she would not be drugged – but that turned out to be a bald-faced lie.

Doctors In Australia Ordered To Prescribe Fewer Antidepressants

[Editor’s Note]

For evidence of how depression is not a disease, but in fact, a symptom, please read Dr. Kelly Brogan’s book “A Mind Of Your Own – The Truth About Depression” where she cites dozens of examples using scientific literature to eviscerate the “depression is a chemical imbalance” myth.  Dr. Brogan also shows examples of what options individuals have in order to take their health into their own hands.

Australian health experts are warning that antidepressants are not as effective as previously thought. As a result, physicians in that nation are being told to scale back on prescribing the drugs.

Nearly 1 in 10 Australian adults take antidepressants – that’s 10% of the population – and a growing number of children and teens are being prescribed the psychiatric drugs. But the medications don’t work in many cases. In fact, psychiatrists say there has been a drastic breakdown in research backing antidepressants’ effectiveness.

Christopher Davey, a psychiatrist at Orygen, the National Centre of Excellence in Youth Mental Health, told the Sydney Morning Herald that as experts analyze more and more studies of antidepressants, they are discovering that the drugs have proven to be ineffective in 30-40% of people who use them for the sole purpose of treating depression. They are also stumbling across negative trials that were previously not published.

Davey and his colleague Andrew Chanen said earlier studies reported that antidepressants were more effective due to two reasons: pharmaceutical company involvement, and selective reporting of positive results.

The men write in the report:

“The use of antidepressants has continued to rise despite accumulating evidence that they are not as effective as was previously thought.

“Earlier studies had reported much larger effect sizes for the medications, in part driven by the influences of the pharmaceutical industry on selective publishing of positive results and the substitution of outcome measures to report ambiguous findings as positive. Revelations of these publication strategies have done significant damage to the reputation of the medications and to the pharmaceutical companies who make and market them.”

Also, Davey and Chanen believe, another aspect of these earlier positive studies is that the proportion of patients responding to placebos has risen steadily over the past two decades, which has narrowed the gap between the response to the medication versus a placebo.

This perceived symptom improvement on placebo may be due to larger numbers of people with milder symptoms being admitted into trials. These individuals tend to be more susceptible to the placebo response. It’s also likely there was a greater expectation among these subjects that their depression would improve.

Another possibility is that participants simply get better over time, irrespective of the treatment they receive.

You Won’t Believe How Much Fluoride Is In Your Water
If you drink tap water, please do your research.  Not only is it laden with Fluoride, which is a neurotoxin [among other things], but it also has many other toxic components.  Also, if you drink/purchase water bottles, look into purchasing a water filter.  By getting a quality filter not only will you stop exposing yourself to bisphenol A [and other toxins that leach from plastic], but the filter will pay for itself rather quickly, and you’ll be able to save money while decreasing your biofootprint.  Its something worth pondering.

Blacklisted Health Book Soars To NY Times Best-Seller Status Via Grassroots Support

Titled, A Mind of Your Own: The Truth About Depression and How Women Can Heal Their Bodies To Reclaim Their Lives, and authored by our advisory board member, holistic psychiatrist Kelly Brogan, MD, we reported on the blacklisting of her book in an article published last week titled, Why Is The Media So Afraid of This Woman’s Work?

Since then, A Mind Of Your Own soared to #20 in Amazon’s 8.8 million title inventory, selling out within only two days of its March 15th launch date.  Then, yesterday, it broke through all three of the top best selling book lists: USA Today, Publisher’s Weekly, and #10 on the prestigious NY Times bestsellers list’s most hard to crack category: Advice, How-To, Misc.

Learn more about the book and the program that teaches how to implement the information.

What is especially amazing about the book’s near overnight success, is that not a single copy was sold due to exposure via mainstream TV, radio, print and online publishing, or social media outlets, i.e. it was a 100% organic process.

Clearly, Dr. Brogan’s powerful and uncompromising message (that you can heal your mind and body without drugs) resonated deeply with tens of thousands who bought her book, and have never been exposed to this information before.  How did they hear about it? They discovered it through newsletter lists like our own, organic social media reach, and word of mouth through trusted friends and family — the old fashioned way.

Get complimentary access to the 1st chapter, “Decoding Depression” here.

Truly, how could it have happened any other way? Major media outlets like the New York Times, Dr. Oz., Good Morning America, share one thing in common: their primary funders the very pharmaceutical industry Brogan’s book exposes, and without which they would not be in business. It is highly poetic, therefore, that some of these same major media outlets who blacklisted the book were forced to acknowledge its popularity and relevance on their own best-sellers lists. Could this symbolize how, given the powerful new grassroots influence of social media, major media outlets who collude to silence the truth are now falling on their own swords?

And so, Dr. Brogan’s book was doubly validated. First, for the very reason that its message was universally ignored, and even threatened with negative press, it gained authenticity in the hearts and minds of those who know that truly transformative messages do not make it through major media’s traditional “success filters.”

Second, because the book had zero synthetic exposure and “fertilizer,” its success stands as testimony to the power of our eco-system of informed and engaged of alternative health professionals and enthusiasts, a powerful force to be reckoned with.  Even though the pharmaceutical industry’s advertising dollar powerfully influences the programming agenda of an entire global network of media outlets and influence, it could not silence the voice of an informed, engaged, and compelled public.

The grassroots driven success of Dr. Brogan’s book says a lot about the power of the internet and social media to foster the continued, now light-speed democratization of information, as well as to challenge the process of validation through which we arrive at the measure of a “book’s success.”

The entire point of Dr. Brogan’s book was never to attain mainstream validation by being on best-sellers lists. It was to get her invaluable information into the hands of the many who need it. From Dr. Brogan’s own words:

I wasn’t certain it mattered to me to be acknowledged by mainstream outlets because my primary goal is to get the information in #amindofyourown into the hands that need it. That said, landing on the Bestseller list on the NY Times AND USA Today is pretty awesome considering what is IN this book. And it’s awesome because we got the word out TOGETHER. Feeling the love and the promise for change.”

For those who want to be part of this incredible grassroots movement to spread the truth about mental illness, and how the mind and body can heal itself without drugs, get updates on the book, and join the campaign to create organic social media exposure by buying a copy at your local book store, take a selfie, and share it with the growing community on Facebook.

Book Review: A Mind Of Your Own: The Truth About Depression And How Women Can Heal Their Bodies To Reclaim Their Lives by Kelly Brogan M.D and Kristin Loberg

“Psychiatric diagnosis still relies exclusively on fallible subjective judgments rather than objective biological tests.”
– Dr. Allen Frances, author of Saving Normal

“Probably as much as 75% of the medicine of sickness is unnecessary and its cost can be avoided.”
–  Dr. Ghislaine Lanctot, Author Of The Medical Mafia

Dr. Kelly Brogan’s work first became known to me when she addressed countless health issues in an article she penned years back that was shared via the website GreenMedInfo. From there, she’s been one of my ‘go-to’ alternative medical doctors whose work is attempted to read as much as possible.

Given that, one can come to expect high quality information from the author, and in this recent endeavour, she does not disappoint.

A Mind Of Your Own: The Truth About Depression And How Women Can Heal Their Bodies To Reclaim Their Lives by Kelly Brogan M.D and Kristin Loberg shows the reader many of the inherent issues within Big Pharma and Big Psych.

Not only is the reader seamlessly shown countless examples of very troublesome issues regarding medications doled out like candy by Big Pharma and doctors, but also how this for health profit system of ‘medicine’ is set up by loose strings, which care not for people’s health rights.

For example, did you know that the U.S. and New Zealand are the only countries which allow drug companies to advertise directly to consumers?  Prior to 1997, there was a ban in place that restricted pharmaceuticals from advertising to consumers – known as drug-to-consumer-advertising, or DTCA- but this ban was removed, to the detriment of the populace.[1]

Why is this important?  Because that law was in place to protect individuals from the highly specialized, and yet misleading advertising of all drugs.

Another point of serious concern is how the great majority of prescription drugs sold is due to DTCA.  As Dr. Kelly Brogan notes in her milestone book, which homes in on the efficiency of this specialized advertising:

“It’s been calculated that DTCA [drug-to-consumer advertising] is responsible for nearly half (49 percent) of requests for drugs.  And fully seven out of ten times doctors prescribe based on appeal by patients who learned through their computers and televisions that they have an “imbalance” that must be fixed with a pill.”[2][Bold Emphasis Added]

Predictably, all that already-disturbing information leads to prescription drugs being doled out at 4 Billion per annum[3], it’s no wonder that Medical Errors are the third leading cause of death.[4]According to a new John Hopkins study, which is covered by the Washington Post:

“Their analysis, published in the BMJ on Tuesday [, shows that ‘medical errors’ in hospitals and other health care facilities are incredibly common and may now be the third leading cause of death in the United States — claiming 251,000 lives every year, more than respiratory disease, accidents, stroke and Alzheimer’s.”[5][Click here for the study named Medical Error – The Third Leading Cause Of Death In The US]

You, as an astute reader, might be wondering, okay, what does that have to do with psychiatry?  Excellent question.

About 10% of Americans take anti-depressants, which equates to about 30 million people.  With the downright disconcerting facts that Dr. Brogan brings up in her book A Mind Of Your Own, many of the people that will be railed by the medical system will be within the psychiatric field.

What’s disturbing about this is that, as Dr. Brogan herself cautions, most drug research is in fact, short term:

Their patients have never consented to the long-term effects of these medications because pharmaceutical research is, by nature, short term.  There is no incentive on the part of the pharmaceutical  companies to take a good look at what happens to the average individual when she takes a medication for a decade or so.”[6][Bold Emphasis Added]

As an individual who’s had a few friends that have depression and continues to meet people with it randomly through life, and also as a person who has a great interest in health, the information presented within this book is certainly greatly appreciated.

One of the greatest strengths A Mind Of Your Own showcases is the fact that this book is  chock-full of real verifiable data that would shock most people who haven’t begin doing their own research within the health establishment.

Not only is this book rather easy to comprehend, but the reader can feel the honesty and concern that have been staples of Brogan throughout her work. This is vital, because in the arena of medicine there are countless doctors who care more about prescribing pills, than they do about the welfare of the patient and actually solving the problem.  This is known personally to me and my family via my many hospitalizations due to poor health, doing exactly what the doctors suggested which was always taking more pills.  It was only when seeking my own solutions following nutrition, getting off of medications, and many other issues that true healing began for myself.

On that note, this is where Dr. Brogan shines because she is doing what should be undertaken by most, if not all doctors or concerned individuals within the medical establishment, which is outlining the dangers so many people are going through in respect to side effects by the overmedication of America, as well as – and arguably more importantly – offering solutions/alternatives to the for-profit medical system.

Brogan’s outlook on the mental health in America is quite unique and reminiscent of another author. In fact, for me, it reminds me of a book called Toxic Psychiatry by Peter R. Breggin M.D., where the author not only outlines problems within the psychiatric establishment, but also, like Brogan, covers issues with medications that most people would consider safe, but aren’t as safe as they are made out to be.

Am not implying that the Dr. Brogan’s work takes from Dr. Breggin. What am saying is however, that both doctors have great concern regarding mainstream health, and seem to share very similar values in how they think patients should be treated in respect to solutions and such.

With that said, this particular book ventures in a myriad of paths.  It rightly gives an extensive look into the flawed theory of depression but also shows how that theory is an outright fallacy.  It also covers many of the ways in which depression symptoms can manifest in people, which at times are solved with merely vitamins.

One would expect, with tens of millions of lives at stake, and with dozens of side effects to boot per medication, a more thorough process would be in place to safeguard individuals against possible iatrogenic mistakes that plague the populace en mass.  But such is not the case.

Another great notion Brogan centers in on within her book is done in her chapter called The Great Psychiatric Pretenders.  Within it, Brogan details not only how the one-size-fits-all type of care that is carried out in America is inefficient, but she also provides a few of the circumstances that create bedlam within individuals and are often categorized as depression, but are incorrectly diagnosed.

It’s imperative to know this because people are walking around thinking a pill is the only solution to their problems when there are many more solutions than they realize.

Brogan also sheds light with a cursory glance at the fact that serious drug fraud has taken place in the past which is unknown to many.

Although there aren’t many doctors out there standing up for what’s right within medicine, but Dr. Brogan and a growing number of others are, such as the aforementioned Dr. Peter R. Breggin, Dr. Mercola, Dr. Duzanne Humphries, Dr. Sircus, Dr. Natasha Campbell-Mcbride, Dr. Russell Blaylock, Tetyana Obukhanych Ph.D, and more.  Each of these individuals all put out very high quality information regularly and are concerned with various aspects of health. But don’t take my word for it, do your own research so you can be better informed.

It is vital for individuals as a community to support these people, because they’re in it to HELP people and refuse to throw people under the bus.

In any case, if you’ve read any of Dr. Brogans work, this will definitely follow suit. She definitely pulls no punches in her journey to not only outlining dangers individuals should be concerned about, but also in offering holistic solutions that many do not realize are available.

If you’ve made it this far, and are really interested in the topic, do yourself a favor and purchase this book. That, or perhaps recommend it to people that might find great value in it because they will find information that’s not only deep, but quite extensive. The information in this book can really change the course of someone’s life if they realize what’s out there.

In the age of information, ignorance is no excuse, and this book does an outstanding job of erasing mountains of ignorance that otherwise would be everpresent in respect to the mainstream medical establishment if one were not exposed to it.

Bottom line, not only does Brogan absolutely eviscerate the Depression is a “chemical imbalance” meme with truck loads of data, but she also gives the reader precise methods in which they can retake their health back.

Now, if that’s not self-empowerment, what is?

Elites Link Anti-Government Thought to Mental Illness, Lay Groundwork for Incarceration

Believe in conspiracy theories? You’re probably a narcissist: People who doubt the moon landings are more likely to be selfish and attention-seeking … Psychologists from the University of Kent carried out three online studies … -UK Daily Mail

We are seeing an increasing number of academic studies analyzing the psychology behind “conspiracy theorists” and those who question government propaganda. The idea being that people who don’t trust government may be mentally ill.

These analyses are published in prominent publications in the UK and are building a “scientific” literature revolving psychological dysfunction and “conspiracy theory.”

More:

Do you think the moon-landings were faked, vaccines are a plot for mind control, or that shadowy government agencies are keeping alien technology locked up in hidden bunkers?

If so, chances are you’re a narcissist with low self-esteem, according to psychologists. In the internet age conspiracy theories can incubate in quiet corners of the web, but it may be psychological predispositions of believers which keep them alive, rather than cold hard facts.

The article goes on to explain that researchers at the University of Kent have used online studies  from hundreds of people to generate the study’s conclusions.

The findings appeared in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science with the suggestion that those who adopt conspiracy theories have “outwardly inflated self-confidence” but may be “overcompensating for a lack of belief in themselves.”

The article mentions a previous study conducted by Oxford’s Dr. David Robert Grimes.

From what we’ve written on this study:

Grimes had the idea that mathematics could prove or disprove certain conspiracy theories. A physicist, he “developed a mathematical equation to derive the truth of conspiracy theories,” according to the Christian Science Monitor …

Grimes calculated that the moon landing and climate change conspiracies “would require about 400,000 secret-keepers each, the unsafe vaccination conspiracy would involve 22,000 people, and the cancer cure conspiracy would involve over 710,000 people.”  Even with the utmost secrecy, Grimes reports, his equations show within four years the conspiracies would be exposed nonetheless.

At the time, we commented on Grimes’s apparent “earnestness” in struggling to “understand how people can even engage in conspiratorial thinking to begin with.” We made this comment in relationship to yet a third article on the psychology of conspiracy.

This commentary appeared in the Guardian and, as we pointed out, “argued against conspiratorial thinking based on a new book, Suspicious Minds … written by Rob Brotherton.”

Basically, the idea is that people are naturally prone to conspiracy theories because of the way their brains have evolved. “Identifying patterns and being sensitive to possible threats,” the article explains, “is what has helped us survive in a world where nature often is out to get you.”

Brotherton explains in the article that he decided that the best way to present his thesis was to avoid confronting conspiracy theories head on. Instead, he wanted to explain how people adopted such theories for psychological reasons.

“I wanted to take a different approach, to sidestep the whole issue of whether the theories are true or false and come at it from the perspective of psychology. The intentionality bias, the proportionality bias, confirmation bias. We have these quirks built into our minds that can lead us to believe weird things without realising that’s why we believe them.”

So here we have three explanations of conspiracy theories presented by major publications in less than three month’s time. And, who knows, perhaps there were more.

In the conclusion to our Grimes’ analysis, we noted that: “It looks as if a more powerful and disciplined program may be underway. Something to ponder along with a further moderation of certain public declarations.”

By “public declarations” we meant those of individuals prone to mentioning conspiracy theories in non-appropriate contexts. As it turns out, we anticipated the current news cycle only by a couple of months.

Just this week, in fact, Attorney General Loretta Lynch attended a Senate Judiciary Hearing and acknowledged discussions at the Department of Justice of taking civil action against “climate change deniers.”

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) questioned her on the issue and drew comparisons between such deniers and the tobacco industry that claimed for decades that the tobacco was not proven to cause ill health.

The Clinton administration eventually brought a successful civil suit against Big Tobacco. And Whitehouse suggested that civil or criminal charges might be brought against “anti-warmists.”

The forces of intolerance are gathering in the US, just as overseas.

We have urged in the past that people pay close attention to these growing trends. By turning statements of opinion into a psychological condition they are trying to discredit anyone who speaks out against the government.
