Forced Medication of Psychiatric Patients Now Being Called Into Question

The practice of physically restraining psychiatric patients and forcing them to take mind-altering medications is finally being called into question by health experts in the UK. The article appeared in the Journal of Advanced Nursing and concludes there is no evidence whatsoever showing that forced medication of psychiatric patients produces a positive outcome.

In psychiatric hospitals, the forced medication of patients involves physically restraining them (straight jackets, wrist straps, etc.) or, in some case, physically beating the patient until they agree to take their pills. If a patient refuses to open their mouth to take the pills, mental hospital workers may hold the patient down, then hold their nose, forcing them to either open their mouth or suffocate. Once the mouth is open, they physically force the medications down their throat, then check to make sure the pills aren't hidden under the tongue.

Such tactics are commonplace in conventional medicine today, where psychiatric doctors believe patients are essentially inmates.

Importantly, the mere act of seeking help for an emotional problem can get you arrested, thrown in a mental institution and medicated against your will. For example, Amy Philo was given antidepressant drugs shortly after giving birth and suffering from post-partum depression. When she sought counseling help for the violent visions she was having about killing her own baby (caused by the antidepressant drugs, of course), she was kidnapped by state health authorities and thrown into a mental institution where she was forcefully medicated against her will. This happened in 2008.

The forced medication of psychiatric patients is just one example of the barbarism of modern medicine. It is an industry that believes patients have no right to refuse medication (or chemotherapy, or vaccines) and that any human being who refuses to "take their medicine" should be arrested as a common criminal, separated from their family, and have their children taken away by Child Protective Services.

Other examples: Read up on Katie Wernecke, a teenage cancer patient who was kidnapped by Texas authorities and forced to submit to chemotherapy. Her parents were arrested and subjected to actions by Child Protective Services. Read those details here: http://www.naturalnews.com/016387.html

Important words of advice: NEVER seek help from a psychiatric doctor. Doing so places you and your family at risk. By merely mentioning a fleeting thought or urge you might have experienced, you may initiate a sequence of events that can land you in a mental institution and result in your children being kidnapped by Child Protective Services.

Also, NEVER disclose any psychiatric-related information to any health professionals or authorities, as even doctors now believe they have the right to have you arrested for thinking "abnormal" thoughts.

If you need help, seek out a naturopathic physician or a natural-oriented mind-body doctor. There are few left, of course, since the state medical boards have yanked all their licenses, but that's another story.
