How Young is Too Young to Diagnose Depression?

Any parent can attest that the “Terrible 2’s” are a moody, temperamental time in the life of a toddler. Many kids are irritable and seem to throw temper tantrums for no reason, and some engage in more destructive behaviors like biting, hitting, and kicking themselves or others. Unfortunately, for some children, this phase lasts well beyond their third birthday. Are these kids just demonstrating the outward signs of emotional immaturity, or are they suffering from clinical depression? A new study funded by the National Institute of Mental Health and published in Archives of General Psychiatry suggests it may be the latter.

The Law Project for Psychiatric Rights

The Law Project for Psychiatric Rights (PsychRights) is a non-profit, tax exempt 501(c)(3) public interest law firm whose mission is to mount a strategic legal campaign against forced psychiatric drugging and electroshock in the United States akin to what Thurgood Marshall and the NAACP mounted in the 40's and 50's on behalf of African American civil rights. The public mental health system is creating a huge class of chronic mental patients through forcing them to take ineffective, yet extremely harmful drugs.

New FDA Study Confirms Antidepressants (SSRIs) Increase Suicide Risks in Children & Young Adults

A study issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Tuesday of this week confirms that people under age 25 who take antidepressants are at a greater risk of suicidal thoughts and tendencies than older adults taking the same medication. The antidepressant drugs specifically addressed were those generally referred to as SSRIs and SNRI's which include medications such as Prozac, Paxil, Effexor and Zoloft. This study was not a shocking result, but did confirm the validity of the "black box" warning the FDA required on these types of drugs addressing the increased risk of suicidal thoughts and tendencies in individuals below the age of 25 taking this kind of medication.

9 Drug-Free Approaches to Managing ADHD

For decades, Ritalin and similar stimulants have reigned over other treatments for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, also known as ADHD or ADD. The meds are seemingly tried and true, with numerous studies backing their effectiveness. However, the latest results from the Multimodal Treatment Study of Children with ADHD, the largest investigation of the benefits of medication against behavioral therapy, found that stimulants' effects wane over time. In addition, the study found that more than 60 percent of the children on stimulants stopped taking the medication within eight years. What's more, the medications used in the study might have stunted participants' growth, researchers concluded.

I have done some further research and I am strongly opposed to any more vaccinations, even for any child I may have in the future. I am concerned for the possibility of child protective services coming to my door and trying to take my son. Do they have the power to take my children and force vaccination? Furthermore, the last pediatrician I went to refused to treat my son because I did not want to continue vaccinating.

"If I had a child now, the last thing I would allow is vaccination."

Retired Vaccine Researcher to Jon Rappoport:

"If I had a child now, the last thing I would allow is vaccination."

[Editor's Note: This interview was posted by Jon Rappoport in early January 2002. You will discover by reading it that the very issues we now face of FORCED vaccination of a laboratory-created vaccine to "protect" us against a laboratory-created "disease" (Swine Flu, Bird flu, etc.) was set into motion a long time ago. The vaccine researcher quoted here flat out says that the World Homicide Organization, WHO, is driven by a DEPOPULATION agenda, and that many African leaders know full well that the explosive spread of HIV and AIDS in Africa was caused by WHO-sponsored vaccinations of the 1970s. This former pharmaceutical insider also debunks the widespread ASSUMPTIONS of vaccine "safety" promoted by orthodox medicine, the CDC, the National Institute of Health, state health departments, and their compliant media propagandists who are all parroting SUPERSTITIONS, rather than FACTS. ..Ken Adachi]

Autism Vaccine

The MMR vaccine has never contained mercury and the phrase "The Autism Vaccine" is an example of the lack of sophistication of the American education.

What you are referring to is what is called Thiomersal (INN) (C9H9HgNaO2S), or sodium ethylmercurithiosalicylate, commonly known in the United States as thimerosal, is an organomercury compound (approximately 49% mercury by weight) used as an antiseptic and antifungal agent.

It was invented and patented by Morris Kharasch. Eli Lilly labeled it the trade name Merthiolate. As a preservative in vaccines, immunoglobulin preparations, skin test antigens, antivenins, ophthalmic and nasal products, and tattoo inks, it has been found to be the most cost-effective preservative.

In the later part of the 1990s, the World Health Organization called upon the United States to reign in on its pharmaceutical rule of medical distribution in its usage of Thimerosal as it was demonstrating severe cognitive and psychological disorders in youths who were vaccinated.

The linkage between the vaccination preservative and developmental disorders in children did not present itself until the 1950's. During the preceding decade, only children of privilege were able to be immunized to such diseases as Measles, Mumps, and Rubbela.

There was an such an unbelievable increase in the reporting of developmental disorders in children of European decent, that the discipline and study of psychology took off. Unfortunately, the cause had yet to be identified.

As economic equality began to balance in the United States, so did the rise of developmental disorders in children. According to a U.S. Department of Education report (for which I regret was lost in my old computer) there was reported to be a 38,000% increase in developmental disorders, reported, in children, K-12 over a 10 year period, (1990-2000).

It was during this time that a team of UK researchers embarked on a 10 year longitudinal study of the adverse effects of thimerosal. Even though the results dismissed claims that there was nothing wrong with the preservative, the U.S. continued its usage, (according to the CDC, another document I lost in my old computer) the longitudinal study was still under replication.

The reason why is because thimerosal provided an extended shelf life for vaccinations, particularly those in inner city municipalities. In wealthier cities, the health departments banned its usage and returned the vaccinations to the suppliers. Unfortunately, smaller, or rather, poorer municipalities did not have the oversight resources to monitor or replace this type of preventive social care.

For those cities that were able to return the mercury weight-based vaccinations to the suppliers, the suppliers were able to turn, again, a hefty profit by distributing the vaccinations to poor African and Indian continents, as a public relations campaign.

For those poorer cities that could not afford to monitor or return, the vaccinations remained on the store shelves of the community health departments because the thimerosal extended the life of the vaccinations.

Eventually, the World Health Organization "encouraged" a ban under the Regan Administration. The result was a shift to an "artificial thimerosal" preservative that did not contain the 49.8% weight-based mercury. Basically, it was the same day, different story.

It must be noted that mercury-based vaccinations is not the only source of the suspected cause of autism. Heavy metal fall-out in traditionally high areas of factory industry, such as Detroit, have produced statistics as high as 1 in 10 male children having autism.

In California, there are reports of high levels of autism in resort areas due to the high levels of mercury found in fish, a result of industry.

There are substantiated and unsubstantiated stories that are floating around that pharmaceutical corporations have promulgated the developmental disorders in children for the purposes of profiting off of more anti-psychotropic medications for children. The majority of pharmaceutical corporations fund university research studies that develop and support new diagnoses and benefits of the drugs.

In summation, this is all how the term "Autism Vaccine" has come to be. Damned if you do; damned if you don't.

Depression in Teens - Hormones at Work

By: Margaret. H

Depression is something that can be said to pretty common among people all over the world and in almost any situation, and depression can appear and manifest within the body in many forms. Now teenagers, or depression in teens, is something that can happen quite commonly within these pubescent human beings who are going through a whole slew of hormonal and physical changes.

The issue here is that while some teens are able to cope with these natural functions of growing up, some others might not be able to cope so well and they show their inability to cope with things like depression. Now when one person is going through puberty, there are hormonal changes that happen in the body and the darn thing is that hormones have so much to do with the emotional subsystems in the body. When you are growing up or experiencing puberty, there is a surge in the amount of male or female hormones that are circulating around the body and this is because your body is trying to activate the biological triggers within the body to start some growth spurt and allow areas within the body to grow and develop that mark you as female or male.

Now when you are a male, the level of testosterone in your body increases and this is to actually trigger processes like protein synthesis and development of male specific organs and other bodily functions. Your Adams apple will protrude, the voice box will deepen, protein synthesis will ensure that your muscularity grows and your mass and height will also be affected. For the female, the hormone that we are talking about here is estrogen and it does the same functions as testosterone, but only affects different areas of the female body.

Now, with any biological processes and the millions of possible genetic combination out there, there are bound to be side effects and levels of side effects within individuals who are experiencing puberty. One of them is that they are unable to cope with their major physical changes and they might experience things like acne, which might cause them to be depressed about their appearance. Also, hormones at such a level might also incur emotions to go up and down like tidal waves, and they might be out of control of these teenagers to handle.

Because of these emotions and feelings of being segmented from other normal people, they might slip into depression that is common to teenagers. Do not be alarmed if you see your teenager showing the signs of depression, for even an extended period. Their body is trying to get used to the high level of hormones and the massive changes they are experiencing. Be concerned if they become a complete introvert and there is a drastic character change within themselves. Then the problem might be more than just the normal hormonal problem. If you are concerned, approach a child psychologist, who might be able to help you to evaluate your teenager and make the recommendations.

MindMatters Psychology Practice provides child development support services for children and young adults. They also provide an IQ Testing for children to pinpoint any possible asperger's syndrome.

Add Coach = Success!

One of a parent’s greatest desires is to see their children succeed and become confident, productive adults. For children with ADD/ADHD, success in academic environments has added challenges. It is just as possible for students with ADD/ADHD to be successful, but traditional classroom methods are often counterintuitive to the learning style of ADD/ADHD students. Add to that the challenges of learning to balance the work load of college with new-found freedom and friends and a positive college experience can seem out of grasp. ADD/ADHD academic coaching is an effective tool available to parents of ADD/ADHD students to help increase their student’s chances of success and get more out of their college education investment.

Building a Foundation for Success

ADD academic coaches work with ADD/ADHD students' specific learning needs, beginning by laying a foundation for success that starts with defining goals. This is so essential; without goals, students tend to wander aimlessly taking more of an interest in fun than in getting the most out of their education. Helping students define the goals that their college education will help them to achieve establishes the motivation they need to succeed. To establish and define these goals, an ADD coach will use assessment tools to help your student understand their learning style and the natural talents and abilities they possess that can benefit them in their college career and beyond.

Developing Specific Skills

In addition, an ADD coach helps students develop the specific skills they need to overcome their learning challenges in the college environment: how to take notes in class, how to study, how to manage time, how to organize, how to prepare for tests, how to take tests, how to avoid procrastination, how to remain healthy and well-balanced, how to choose a career, and more.

Growing Self-Confidence

Through the process of working with an ADD coach, students grow more knowledgeable about themselves and their true potential. Self-confidence grows based on the knowledge of the strengths they have to offer the world. Responsibility increases as they take the initiative to work toward the goals they have set for themselves. The concept of accountability as an aid to achieve goals - even for autonomous, independent adults - is developed and will follow your student throughout life.

An ADD coach, especially one who has the qualifications and experience necessary, offer students the tools they need to overcome the challenges of ADD/ADHD and succeed in their college education, enriching their lives indefinitely as the skills learned continue to be practiced. Parents can rest easy knowing they have given their children the invaluable help they need to become successful adults. As they attain their degree, students can be proud of their hard work and the accomplishments that an ADD coach helped make possible.

Number of Americans taking antidepressants doubles

The number of Americans using antidepressants doubled in only a decade, while the number seeing psychiatrists continued to fall, a study shows.

About 10% of Americans — or 27 million people — were taking antidepressants in 2005, the last year for which data were available at the time the study was written. That's about twice the number in 1996, according to the study of nearly 50,000 children and adults in today's Archives of General Psychiatry. Yet the majority weren't being treated for depression. Half of those taking antidepressants used them for back pain, nerve pain, fatigue, sleep difficulties or other problems, the study says.

The Truth about Flu Shots

On June 11, 2009, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced that it had declared "Level 6" pandemic emergency with regard to the "swine flu." Shortly thereafter, on cue, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that we should expect mass vaccination in this country to begin as early as September, 2009. We have been covering the development of the global pandemic preparedness machinery in The IO since June, 1998. It is our belief that this machine has been in motion since March 28, 2009 and will not be stopped; that the global influenza pandemic the CDC and WHO have been predicting (planning) for at least a decade will be declared—whether people are pandemically sick and dying or not—and the global mass vaccination campaign for which they have been preparing since the 1970s swine flu fiasco will commence—soon. It is absolutely crucial that you share the following information with your friends, family and both elected and appointed bureaucrats within your community.
