DSM 5 Changes Clearly Unsafe and Scientifically Unsound

Friday, January 11th, 2013

Some examples:

  • DSM 5 will turn temper tantrums into a mental disorder
  • Normal grief will become Major Depressive Disorder, thus medicalizing and trivializing our expectable and necessary emotional reactions to the loss of a loved one
  • The everyday forgetting characteristic of old age will now be misdiagnosed as Minor Neurocognitive Disorder

Psychiatric Disorders are a Fraud

Monday, September 5th, 2005

(OPENPRESS) September 4, 2005 — The psychiatric profession purports to be the sole arbiter on the subject of mental health and “diseases” of the mind. However, psychiatric “disordersâ€? are not medical diseases and psychiatrists admit in their own literature that they have no idea how the mind works.

In medicine, strict criteria exist for calling a condition a disease: a predictable group of symptoms and the cause of the symptoms or an understanding of their physiology (function) must be proven and established. Chills and fever are symptoms. Malaria and typhoid are diseases. Diseases are proven to exist by objective evidence and physical tests. Yet, no mental “diseases” have ever been proven to medically exist.
