The world of Mental Health is not monolithic, however some views have not had much press and have been shunted to the side.  We provide the following links, for your information, and so you can explore other, alternative opinions and options.            Keep looking for answers:

Dr. Rima E. Laibow, uses this metaphor, as she treats people just  like Adam Lanza, the Sandy Hook shooter; to present her opinion on the psychiatric treatment:

“I am a Child, Adolescent and Adult Psychiatrist. …  have worked with Autistic people of all ages,  Asberger’s Syndrome people, Schizophrenic people, BiPolar people, Multiple Personality Disorder people, OCD, ADD, ADHD, and pretty much every other type of labeled person in my 42+ year career since graduating from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City … and I have never written a prescription for a psychiatric drug. Or any other type of drug, for that matter.”

Her approach seems like basic common sense (which these days is most uncommon!):  She takes every new patient off their medications, because  how can you tell what you have underneath the drugs until you do?

The Disappearing Male    

“We are conducting a vast toxicological experiment in which our children and our children’s children are the experimental subjects.” Dr. Herbert Needleman

The Disappearing Male is about one of the most important, and least publicized, issues facing the human species: the toxic threat to the male reproductive system.

The last few decades have seen steady and dramatic increases in the incidence of boys and young men suffering from genital deformities, low sperm count, sperm abnormalities and testicular cancer.

At the same time, boys are now far more at risk of suffering from ADHD, autism, Tourette’s syndrome, cerebral palsy, and dyslexia.

The Disappearing Male takes a close and disturbing look at what many doctors and researchers now suspect are responsible for many of these problems: a class of common chemicals that are ubiquitous in our world.

Found in everything from shampoo, sunglasses, meat and dairy products, carpet, cosmetics and baby bottles, they are called “hormone mimicking” or “endocrine disrupting” chemicals and they may be starting to damage the most basic building blocks of human development.
