(NaturalNews) If there were ever evidence that doctors are on an ignorant, out-of-control rampage to subject your brain to sedatives, this has got to be it.

Have you been bullied at work? Have you witnessed someone else being bullied? Then you are a prime candidate to be prescribed drugs to deal with your problem, according to research reported by Medical News Today:

The findings showed that workplace bullying was associated with subsequent prescriptions for psychoactive drugs in both men and women.

Women were around 50% more likely to have a prescription for these drugs while men were around twice as likely to do so if they had been bullied at work. And witnessing workplace bullying had a similar impact.

Women were 53% more likely to be prescribed a psychoactive drug, while men were almost twice as likely to receive a prescription of this kind.


Should your doctor be the one to treat you if you have a relationship problem?

Bullying is very much a people problem.
If you 1) bully others 2) get bullied by others or 3) helplessly witness bullying, then you have a relationship problem that requires interpersonal skills as both remedy and prevention.

What does a doctor know about relationships or interpersonal communication?

Not much, considering that the average doctor has the people skills of a marble slab. Does a doctor know how to mediate conflict? Does he know how to deal with intense emotions? Of course not. Doctors do not receive training in these areas. In fact, their jobs encourage disassociation from emotions.

Any doctor worth his salt would promptly refer any relationship issue to a relationship expert with real people skills as a first resort.

This one is so obvious that it is hard not to believe docs are looking for any excuse to sedate your brain.

Dealing with a bully requires being assertive. Being assertive requires freedom from past emotional trauma, inner confidence, a strong sense of justice and a healthy sense of self. If you are being bullied, these qualities are worth developing. Once you have them, they will serve you in a thousand ways for the rest of your life, not just in bullying situations.

Solving the problem by becoming a stronger person is an actual solution that will pay dividends for a lifetime. Taking a drug as a solution robs you of this opportunity.

Don't look to drugs for answers to people problems. Build real people skills.
