Elvis died of prescribed painkillers, Demerol, Quaaludes and barbiturates. Marilyn Monroe died of opiates, sleeping pills, barbiturates and amphetamines prescribed for depression. Michael Jackson died of acute propofol and benzodiazepine intoxication prescribed by his personal physician. Whitney Houston died with Xanax, Flexeril, Benadryl, marijuana, and cocaine in her system. Robin Williams killed himself with mind altering psychiatric antidepressants mirtazapine and seroquel in his system. Kate Spade hung herself, under the influence of prescription drugs prescribed for anxiety and depression.
There have been over twenty-five teen age shooters who have killed other students while under the influence of antidepressant and stimulants prescribed by doctors. Family and spiritual counseling have been replaced with pills. Kids today are given antisychotics as a form of chemical lobotomy. From the Columbine High School shooting in Colorado to a recent school shooting in Texas, many of the shooters had in common the prescription use of psychotropic drugs.
LSD was first manufactured from molds by Sandoz in Switzerland. The CIA contracted Eli Lilly to make synthetic LSD in volume as a mind control drug. When LSD was banned by Congress, Eli Lilly switched to SSRIs, (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors). Prozac, Zoloft, Luvox, Paxil are SSRIs prescribed antidepressants, and are the most common drugs found in school shooters. These drugs were all created to increase levels of serotonin levels in the frontal lob of the brain. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter which effects depression and mood behavior. Antidepressants such as Prozac are designed to prevent the re-uptake of serotonin by binding it to the cell receptors. The theory is that this binding effect of Prozac raises the level of serotonin by holding it in the brain and not allowing it to be expelled. LSD, Mescaline, and PCP all have the same type of action on serotonin levels, They all increase serotonin and decrease serotonin metabolite. Cocaine and alcohol also increase levels of serotonin. The levels then subsequently drop just as they do with LSD, which causes a crash, with accompanying psychotic behavior such as agitation, and suicidal depression.
G.K. Chesterton said, "When men choose not to believe in God, they become capable of believing in anything." When educated man lost faith in formal religion, he required a substitute belief that would be as reputable. In the Post Christian world psychology and psychiatry have replaced belief in God. The word sin was replaced with disease, the word soul was replaced with the word mind, ministers as Godly counselors were replaced with therapists.
Sadness is a normal healthy response to life's trials and tribulations, which come from the death of loved ones, or loss of job, etc. Depression can also be caused by hormonal imbalance or dementia. However, worry and anxiety are called a sin in the Bible. In the Sermon on the Mount Jesus commanded "Do not be anxious". (Mat 6:25). Trusting in yourself produces anxiety. Trusting in God, frees you from anxiety, The Apostle James said trials and tribulation were meant to strengthen our patience, faith, and character. Medicines which treat disease are good. However, drugs meant to mask feelings, and alter consciousness, are part of sorcery, and condemned in the Bible.
The word psychology comes from the Greek word "psyche" (soul) and the word "logos" which means word or knowledge. Psychology is the study of the soul. Progressive materialistic psychologist do not know who man is. They have reduced man to an arrangement of molecules made by blind chance. They see man as an animal. They do not understand man was made in the image of God, with a body, soul, and freewill. Because secular humanist deny the existence of the supernatural, including the mind or soul, they are limited to treating the physical brain. In the 1930's neurologists got the idea mental health could be improved by psychosurgery. After lobotomies and electric shock failed, drug companies switched to chemical lobotomy through psychotic drugs. This led to an explosion of opiate pain killers, antidepressant and antipsychotic drugs, which resulted in an explosion of tragic deaths from side affects of prescription drugs.
