MessagePosté le: Mar 15 Mar - 07:09 (2016)    Sujet du message: FDA TO DECLASSIFY ELECTROSHOCK THERAPY TO SAME RISK CATEGORY AS CONDOMS AND CONTACT LENSES Répondre en citant


Monday, March 14, 2016 by: J. D. Heyes

(NaturalNews) The Food and Drug Administration is set to allow for the dramatic expansion of electroshock therapy for patients who have been diagnosed with clinical depression, through reclassification of the devices used to deliver shock treatment, despite the fact that experts and former patients have attested to the damage such treatment causes.

As noted by mental health watchdog organization Citizens Commission on Human Rights International (CCHRI), the FDA began the reclassification process for Electroconvulsive Therapy Devices (ECT) in early January. The change would lower the devices from their current highest-risk Category III classification, "to allow electric shock machines to be utilized in the treatment of specific alleged mental illnesses with less regulatory controls," the organization noted in an alert.

The change, detailed here at Regulations.gov, is being sought, "despite the federal agency's admission that the ECT device has not been proven safe and effective," CCHRI noted further, adding that to date, some 5 million Americans have been given ECT treatments without their manufacturers having been required to submit valid scientific evidence (like clinical trials), that they were safe and effective.

No oversight

"The proposal has reignited a firestorm that the FDA has colluded with the American Psychiatric Association (APA) to promote a dangerous treatment and protect the fiscal concerns of APA members rather than protect patient lives," CCHRI reported.

The organization says that the FDA has been dragging its feet on the reclassification since it first made the proposal in 2009 – shortly after President Obama took office – requesting public input.

Further, at a public hearing in January 2011, some 80 percent of respondents, and another 92 group submissions representing more than 6,000 people, were against reclassification, the organization noted.

ECT devices work by sending up to 460 volts of electricity through the brain, with no scientific evidence to back up how the procedure works to reduce a patient's psychological condition, CCHRI noted. Evidence and patient reports actually state that following ECT treatments patients have complained of memory loss, cardiovascular complications and lasting brain damage. CCHRI says that some patients have even died.

In fact, in 1979 the FDA classified the ECT device as Class III because of its "potential unreasonable risk of illness or injury."

In January, Medicine.news reported that a bill had been introduced in Congress that would allow the testing of medical devices on patients without prior consent.

The bill, known as the 21st Century Cures Act, "essentially weakens the already weak standards for the approval process of prescription drugs and medical devices, solely benefiting the pharmaceutical industry while placing Americans directly in harm's way as they unknowingly become guinea pigs," Medicine.news reported.

Major depressive disorders will worsen

That includes the weakening of standards governing medical devices like ECT, according to Lee Spiller, CCHRI executive director.

"For years, the makers of psychiatric electroshock (ECT) machines have been unable to get their machines moved out of category III (dangerous or experimental) and into category II," he said – this is the same category as condoms, contact lenses and air purifiers.

CCHRI says that ECT makers have never had to provide a Premarket Approval Application (PMA) with clinical trial results that prove the safety of the devices. In 1990 and again in 2009, the federal government required FDA to either reclassify Class III medical devices or make sure that manufacturers were submitting PMAs as required if they remained at the high-risk classification. But ECT makers have failed to meet this requirement.

Safety testing by manufacturers is largely omitted under the 21st Century Cures Act, Medicine.news reported, adding that drug and device makers "can even gain FDA approval for products based solely on the experience of individuals."

The FDA's current proposal would reduce the risk classification of ECT devices for treating "severe major depressive episode (MDE) associated with major depressive disorder (MDD) or bipolar disorder (BPD) in patients 18 years of age or older who are treatment-resistant or who require a rapid response due to the severity of their psychiatric or medical condition," the rule change states.

By Brendan | April 1, 2016

Berlin | Chancellor Angela Merkel’s cabinet has successfully passed a new law that renders it illegal to deny the reality of climate change.

The new addition to the German criminal law could make offenders face up to five years in jail if convicted.

“As the COP 21 illuminates, it is a necessity in these times of global climate change to cut the debate short and take action for the future” spoke chancellor Angela Merkel yesterday. “The world is facing its worst global crisis since WWII,” she told reporters during the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference.

Holocaust deniers and climate change deniers are the same as they are guilty of disturbing the public peace, an offense punishable by law,” she explained. “It is a great day for democracy and free speech that the Parliament has unanimously voted to pass this law,” she concluded. Evil or Very Mad

Climate change deniers will be liable to imprisonment for three months to five years under German criminal law, a sentence similar to the offense of holocaust denial

Greenpeace approved

Gunter Heinsbeck, spokesman for the German chapter of Greenpeace, fully approves the new law.

“Germany is a trend setter and an example for the world in its courageous approach towards climate change” he admitted, visibly enthused by the news.

“We hope other country leaders will take similar actions to finally end the debate surrounding climate change,” he expressed. “Climate change deniers should be seen as eco-terrorists and judged as so,” he assures.

Climate change denial and mental illness

Climate change denial could be explained by a predisposition to mental illness believes psychiatrist and bio-geneticist, Franzen Fischer, of the University of Frankfurt.

Professor Franzen Fischer, psychiatrist and bio-geneticist at the University of Frankfurt, believes climate change deniers have a genetic predisposition to mental illness

Climate change deniers personalities are overwhelmingly cynical towards the government and prone to believe in conspiracy theories,” explains the Director of Frankfurt University’s psychiatric department.

A 2014 recent study suggests climate change deniers have a genetic predisposition to mental illness and diseases such as depression, bipolarity and even show high risks of developing schizophrenia,” he explains.

I fear imprisoning them might exacerbate their condition, I would favor a clinical treatment approach such as the use of medication and prevention through education,” he warns.

Other countries could follow, believe experts, after world leaders such as President Barrack Obama and President François Hollande have saluted favorably the new law as a “path to progress.”

Rehabilitation program...

Posted by: Jonathan D. Halevi April 14, 2016

Iqbal Nadvi, Chairman of the Canadian Council of Imams. Photo: screenshot YouTube Canadian Council of Imams.

The Canadian Council of Imams (CCI), the supreme religious authority of Canadian Sunni Muslims, de facto acknowledges the link between global terrorism and Islam by announcing its intention to establish “deradicalization clinics” in Canada.

In a press release on Thursday, April 14, 2016, the Canadian Council of Imams stated among other thing the following:

“We as an organization reflecting the length and breadth of Muslim communities in Canada, call on the Government of Canada and all Canadians to support the work of the CCI in its effort to counter the messages and acts of violent extremism.
We also call on Muslims across Canada to unite in driving this evil ideology from among us.
We also invite all Canadians to fight against Islamophobia which aids the marginalization of Canadian Muslims and strengthens the messaging of this deviant call to violent extremism.”

Michel Coulombe, the Director of Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS), warned in his latest briefing on March 7, 2016 before the Standing Senate Committee on National Security and Defence, of the extent of Islamic radicalism in Canadian society.

“We have never before faced a threat of the scope, scale, and complexity as that posed by extremists inspired by the violent ideologies of ISIL or al Qaeda,” Coulombe said. “Canadians with extremist views continue to seek to undertake terrorist activity, whether they remain in Canada or travel abroad. While the terrorist traveller phenomenon is not new to Canada, the volume of threats, the speed at which they evolve, and the use of technology and social media, has created significant investigative, technical, and analytical challenges for the service.”

Referring to the threat of Islamic State (a.k.a. ISIS, ISIL, Daesh, Caliphate) to national security of Canada, Coulombe said the following:
“ISIL, in particular, has developed a sophisticated and effective social media presence and has succeeded in recruiting thousands of individuals to travel to Syria from all corners of the globe. ISIL also calls followers to perpetrate attacks in their own countries or to facilitate the terrorist activities of others.

“Canadians are among this group. The service is currently aware of approximately 180 individuals who have an access to Canada, who are engaged in terrorist activity abroad. Of these, around 100 or so are believed to be in Turkey, Syria, or Iraq. The activities of these extremist travellers vary widely, ranging from paramilitary activity, training, and logistical support, to terrorist fundraising and studying at extremist Islamist madrasas. The participation of Canadians in these conflicts is destabilizing and harmful to the countries in which they operate, and Canada has an international obligation to prevent and deter terrorist travel.

“The service is also aware of around 60 returnees. Extremists returning to Canada have the potential to pose significant threats to our national security. However, I must be clear with the committee when I say “potential”, as returnees may respond in a number of different ways — from returning to normality, to radicalizing others, to financing or facilitating the travel of others, to planning attacks here.”

Tags: electroshock therapy, children, CCHR protest

(NaturalNews) Citizens Commission on Human Rights is holding a rally in Atlanta, Georgia on Saturday, May 14 at 10:30 a.m. to protest the American Psychiatric Association's recommendation that electroshock therapy (ECT) be used on children and teenagers unresponsive to psychiatric drugs.

CCHR is a non-profit mental health watchdog group dedicated to eliminating "abuses committed under the guise of mental health." The rally will take place in downtown Atlanta at the APA's annual convention. Participants will meet at the North end of Woodruff Park, on Peachtree Street Northwest and Auburn Ave Northeast.

Electroshock therapy or electroconvulsive therapy is an archaic treatment invented in the 1930s that sends jolts of electricity into the brain, inducing a grand mal seizure. It's associated with numerous side-effects, including short and long-term memory loss, cognitive problems, unwanted personality changes, manic symptoms, prolonged seizures, heart problems and death.

"ECT is a degrading, damaging, memory robbing procedure that should have been outlawed years ago," said Lee Spiller, Executive Director of CCHR. "Shock machines are one of a number of devices that were on the market prior to today's laws. They were essentially grandfathered in."

Electroshock therapy lacks safety studies

Currently, the U.S Food and Drug Administration is deciding whether or not to declassify the risk of electroconvulsive therapy, from a Class III device, the highest risk category, to a Class II, defined as moderately risky. Since 1979, electroshock therapy has been categorized as a Class III device, making it subject to the highest level of regulatory control.

Opponents fear that if the FDA decides to declassify the risk level of ECT the treatment could be used much more freely, because the devices would be eligible for "off-label" use. Though the FDA has requested safety data since 1978, no ECT manufacturer has ever provided a Pre-Market Approval or any clinical trials illustrating the treatment's safety and efficacy.

The American Psychiatric Association is the driving force behind the risk level declassification of ECT, as well as the push to use the treatment on children and teenagers unresponsive to current drugs and therapies.

In other words, under the APA's recommendation, if psychiatric drugs aren't working for children, the next step could be electroshock therapy, a treatment that can permanently damage cognitive abilities, handicapping children for life. The APA, however, argues that the damage caused by mental illness may be just as severe.

Though proponents say electroconvulsive therapy is safer than when it was first developed in the 1930s, the procedure still involves sending up to 460 volts of electricity into the brain, as we've previously reported.

Millions of kids experiencing the side-effects of psychiatric drugs could be subjected to electroconvulsive therapy

Currently, approximately 8 million children in the U.S. are being prescribed psychiatric drugs, including antidepressants and antipsychotics, as well as drugs for anxiety and ADHD, according to CCHR. One million of these children are between the ages of 0 and 5.

"Children are being drugged simply because psychiatry has pathologized normal childhood behaviors, and repackaged them as 'mental disorders.'" As a result, millions of children are "being drugged for behaviors reclassified by psychiatry as 'disease,'" CCHR states in its press report for Saturday's protest.

"Children are becoming addicted to these drugs, many of which are in the same class of highly addictive drugs as cocaine, opium and morphine. Yet the American Psychiatric Association is doing nothing to stop this epidemic.

"Quite the opposite, they are now calling on the FDA to allow them to electroshock children who don't respond to 'treatment' (drugs.) This opens the door for millions of children experiencing side effects from the drugs, to be reclassified as 'treatment resistant' and to undergo electroshock as 'treatment.'"

Published on: May 13, 2016 | Last Updated: May 14, 2016 6:07 PM EDT

Ottawa immunization exemption rates are less than two per cent, according to Ottawa Public Health. ERROL MCGIHON/SUNMEDIA / ERROL MCGIHON/SUN MEDIA

Ontario parents who refuse to immunize their children for non-medical reasons will have to take an “education session” about the risks if new legislation passes.  
The amendment to the province’s Immunization of School Pupils Act, introduced Thursday, would “help parents and guardians make informed decisions about vaccination,” said Minister of Health and Long-Term Care Eric Hoskins.

The amendment proposes that parents who are not able to provide immunization records to a public health unit would be required to take an education session to get an exemption. Parents would still be able to get exemptions for religious or conscientious reasons, however the pending legislation means they’d have to jump through one more hoop. Details of the proposed education sessions are not yet clear, but they would be provided by public health units.

As is currently the case, unvaccinated children without an exemption would be suspended from school.

Ontario and New Brunswick are the only the provinces that require immunizations for children to attend school unless there is a valid exemption, said David Jensen, a spokesman for the Health Ministry.

Under the Immunization of School Pupils Act, children must have proof they have been immunized against diphtheria, tetanus, polio, measles, mumps, rubella, pertussis, meningococcal disease and chickenpox for those born after 2010.

Several U.S. states, including Arizona, Arkansas, California, Michigan, Oregon, Vermont, Utah and Washington, require parents to attend a session from a public health department or health care provider to get a non-medical exemption, said Jensen.

On July 1, California will no longer offer non-medical exemptions for school attendance

In Ottawa, immunization exemption rates are below two per cent, according to a statement from Ottawa Public Health.

“As part of our standard practice, OPH conducts one-on-one counselling with parents who wish to file a non-medical exemption for their children, to ensure that they have all the information to make an informed decision.”

The anti-vaccine lobby group Vaccine Choice Canada has charged that Ontario’s Health Ministry has “failed to ensure that Ontario citizens are adequately informed of their legal right to exemption from vaccination requirements under the Immunization of School Pupils Act.”

In a complaint to the Ontario ombudsman dated May 5, Vaccine Choice said the Health Ministry’s insistence that vaccinations are mandatory are “misleading and incorrect and legal exemptions are available to parents for medical, religious and conscientious reasons.”

Heather Fraser, a Toronto mother of two and member of Vaccine Choice, said she stopped vaccinating her son, now 21, after he developed severe allergies to peanuts and nuts after he had his first vaccinations. Her children have notarized vaccine exemptions.

If she were forced to take an education session, Fraser said she would be compliant with the law, but would record everything and take it to a lawyer.

She warns that parents will push back if the legislation passes. “I can do my research and I can think for myself. And maybe that’s what the government doesn’t want to happen.”

Meanwhile, another amendment to the Immunization of School Pupils Act introduced Thursday would offer the next step in the province’s goal of establishing a vaccine registry. The amendment would require health care providers to report any vaccines they administer that are required by schools to the local public health unit.

As it stands, parents are responsible for reporting their child’s immunization status to the health unit. The change would make it easier for parents and reduce unnecessary suspensions because of outdated immunization information, said Jensen.

The Liberal majority government could quickly pass the bill, even with a mere dozen sitting days left in the session, so it can take effect before the start of the next school year.

In 2013, Ontario introduced a central immunization information repository called Panorama, which has already standardized and stored over 6.3 million client records from all 36 public health units in the province, said Jensen. The initial stage of the project, focused on school-aged children, was completed in March.

In December and January, Ottawa Public Health suspended hundreds of elementary school students because of missing immunization records. As of last October, the records of 50,000 Ottawa students were out of date, despite an extensive phone and letter campaign to update them. Ottawa Public Health officials sent 8,400 final notice of suspension letters to parents, notifying them their children will be suspended if their records were not updated.

Thursday, December 13, 2012
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger

Editor of NaturalNews.com (See all articles...)
Tags: DSM-5, psychiatry, false diagnosis

(NaturalNews) The industry of modern psychiatry has officially gone insane. Virtually every emotion experienced by a human being -- sadness, grief, anxiety, frustration, impatience, excitement -- is now being classified as a "mental disorder" demanding chemical treatment (with prescription medications, of course).

The new, upcoming DSM-5 "psychiatry bible," expected to be released in a few months, has transformed itself from a medical reference manual to a testament to the insanity of the industry itself.

"Mental disorders" named in the DSM-5 include "General Anxiety Disorder" or GAD for short. GAD can be diagnosed in a person who feels a little anxious doing something like, say, talking to a psychiatrist. Thus, the mere act of a psychiatrist engaging in the possibility of making a diagnoses causes the "symptoms" of that diagnoses to magically appear.

This is called quack science and circular reasoning, yet it's indicative of the entire industry of psychiatry which has become such a laughing stock among scientific circles that even the science skeptics are starting to turn their backs in disgust. Psychiatry is no more "scientific" than astrology or palm reading, yet its practitioners call themselves "doctors" of psychiatry in order to try to make quackery sound credible.

How modern psychiatry really worksHere's how modern psychiatry really operates: A bunch of self-important, overpaid intellectuals who want to make more money invent a fabricated disease that I'll call "Hoogala Boogala Disorder" or HBD.

By a show of hands, they then vote into existence whatever "symptoms" they wish to associated with Hoogala Boogala Disorder. In this case, the symptoms might be spontaneous singing or wanting to pick your nose from time to time.

They then convince teachers, journalists and government regulators that Hoogala Boogala Disorder is real -- and more importantly that millions of children suffer from it! It wouldn't be compassionate not to offer all those children treatment, would it?

Thus begins the call for "treatment" for a completely fabricated disease. From there, it's a cinch to get Big Pharma to fabricate whatever scientific data they need in order to "prove" that speed, amphetamines, pharmaceutical crack or whatever poison they want to sell "reduces the risk of Hoogala Boogala Disorder."

Serious-sounding psychiatrists -- who are all laughing their asses off in the back room -- then "diagnose" children with Hoogala Boogala Disorder and "prescribe" the prescription drugs that claim to treat it. For this action, these psychiatrists -- who are, let's just admit it, dangerous child predators -- earn financial kickbacks from Big Pharma

In order to maximize their kickbacks and Big Pharma freebies, groups of these psychiatrists get together every few years and invent more fictitious disorders, expanding their fictional tome called the DSM.

The DSM is now larger than ever, and it includes disorders such as "Obedience Defiance Disorder" (ODD), defined as refusing to lick boots and follow false authority. Rapists who feel sexual arousal during their raping activities are given the excuse that they have "Paraphilic coercive disorder" and therefore are not responsible for their actions. (But they will need medication, of course!)

You can also get diagnosed with "Hoarding Disorder" if you happen to stockpile food, water and ammunition, among other things. Yep, being prepared for possible natural disasters now makes you a mental patient in the eyes of modern psychiatry (and the government, too).

Former DSM chairperson apologizes for creating "false epidemics"Allen Frances chaired the DSM-IV that was released in 1994. He now admits it was a huge mistake that has resulted in the mass overdiagnosis of people who are actually quite normal. The DSM-IV "...inadvertently contributed to three false epidemics -- attention deficit disorder, autism and childhood bipolar disorder," writes Allen in an LA Times opinion piece.

He goes on to say:

The first draft of the next edition of the DSM ... is filled with suggestions that would multiply our mistakes and extend the reach of psychiatry dramatically deeper into the ever-shrinking domain of the normal. This wholesale medical imperialization of normality could potentially create tens of millions of innocent bystanders who would be mislabeled as having a mental disorder. The pharmaceutical industry would have a field day -- despite the lack of solid evidence of any effective treatments for these newly proposed diagnoses.

All these fabricated disorders, of course, result in a ballooning number of false positive. As Allen writes:

The "psychosis risk syndrome" would use the presence of strange thinking to predict who would later have a full-blown psychotic episode. But the prediction would be wrong at least three or four times for every time it is correct -- and many misidentified teenagers would receive medications that can cause enormous weight gain, diabetes and shortened life expectancy.

But that's the whole point of psychiatry: To prescribe drugs to people who don't need them. This is accomplished almost entirely by diagnosing people with disorders that don't exist.

And it culminates in psychiatrists being paid money they never earned (and certainly don't deserve.)

Imagine: An entire industry invented out of nothing! And yes, you do have to imagine it because nothing inside the industry is actually real.

What's "normal" in psychiatry? Being an emotionless zombie

The only way to be "normal" when being observed or "diagnosed" by a psychiatrist -- a process that is entirely subjective and completely devoid of anything resembling actual science -- is to exhibit absolutely no emotions or behavior whatsoever.

A person in a coma is a "normal" person, according to the DSM, because they don't exhibit any symptoms that might indicate the presence of those God-awful things called emotions or behavior.

A person in a grave is also "normal" according to psychiatry, mostly because dead people do not qualify for Medicare reimbursement and therefore aren't worth diagnosing or medicating. (But if Medicare did cover deceased patients, then by God you'd see psychiatrists lining up at all the cemeteries to medicate corpses!)

It's all a cruel, complete hoax. Psychiatry should be utterly abolished right now and all children being put on mind-altering drugs should be taken off of them and given good nutrition instead.

When the collapse of America comes and the new society rises up out of it, I am going to push hard for the complete abolition of psychiatric "medicine" if you can even call it that. Virtually the entire industry is run by truly mad, power-hungry maniacs who use their power to victimize children (and adults, too). There is NO place in society for distorted psychiatry based on fabricated disorders. The whole operation needs to be shut down, disbanded and outlawed.

The lost notion of normalcy

Here are some simple truths that need to be reasserted when we abolish the quack science industry of psychiatry:

Normalcy is not achieved through medication. Normalcy is not the absence of a range of emotion. Life necessarily involves emotions, experiences and behaviors which, from time to time, step outside the bounds of the mundane. This does not mean people have a "mental disorder." It only means they are not biological robots.

Nutrition, not medication, is the answer = Nutrition is very important but the word of God is much more important showing us how to live a good life under God umbrella. Good nutrition was create by the true God but all dimension of our life was also create by Him. Under this psychiatric DSM-5, the Jesuit and demons control your mind and your body in all ways. In this new communist society, anyone who desobey to the system can be consider as mental illness and be put in some psychiatric institution for rehabilitation or worst.

Nutritional deficiencies
, by the way, are the root cause of nearly all "mental illness." Blood sugar imbalances cause brain malfunctions because the brain runs on blood sugar as its primary energy source. Deficiencies in zinc, selenium, chromium, magnesium and other elements cause blood sugar imbalances that result in seemingly "wild" emotions or behaviors.

Nearly everyone who has been diagnosed with a mental disorder in our modern world is actually suffering from nothing more than nutritional imbalances. Too much processed, poisonous junk food and not enough healthy superfood and nutrition. At times, they also have metals poisoning from taking too many vaccines (aluminum and mercury) or eating too much toxic food (mercury in fish, cadmium, arsenic, etc.) Vitamin D deficiency is ridiculously widespread, especially across the UK and Canada where sunlight is more difficult to achieve on a steady basis.

But the reason nutrition is never highlighted as the solution to mental disorders and illness is because the pharmaceutical industry only makes money selling chemical "treatments" for conditions that are given complicated, technical-sounding names to make them seem more real. If food and nutritional supplements can keep your brain healthy -- and believe me, they can! -- then who needs high-priced pharmaceuticals? Who needs high-priced psychiatrists? Who needs drug reps? Pill-pushing doctors? And Obamacare's mandatory health insurance money confiscation programs?

Nobody needs them! This is the simple, self-evident truth of the matter: Our society would be much happier, healthier and more productive tomorrow if the entire pharmaceutical industry and psychiatry industry simply vanished overnight.

With the DSM-5, modern-day psychiatry has made a mockery of itself. What was once viewed as maybe having some basis in science is now widely seen as hilarious quackery.

Psychiatry itself now appears to be completely insane. And that might be the first accurate diagnosis to come out of the entire group.

Invent your own fictitious diseases!By the way, you can be your own psychiatrist right here, right now! Simply use my handy-dandy Disease Mongering Engine which randomly generates real-sounding mental disorders!

Mercredi 20 Juillet 2016 
John P. Thomas, Health Impact News, 24 juin 2016  

Par John P. Thomas, Health Impact News, 23 juin 2016  

Il y a une nouvelle maladie qui menace la population mondiale. Cette affection est si récente qu’elle n’a pas encore été officiellement déclarée comme maladie, mais l’organisation Mondiale de la Santé (OMS) et les bioéthiciens agitent déjà le drapeau rouge en signe d’avertissement.  

Souffrez-vous de « l’hésitation à vacciner » ? 

L’Organisation Mondiale de la Santé (OMS) est très préoccupée par le problème que représente « l’hésitation à vacciner » qui, selon eux, représente une menace par rapport à l’efficacité de leur programme de vaccination dans le monde entier.  

En bref, certains parents n’autorisent pas automatiquement que l’on vaccine leur bébé, alors même que les services de vaccination sont accessibles. Ces parents hésitent, réfléchissent, et dans beaucoup de cas, s’en vont avec leur bébé dans les bras, fuyant les seringues vaccinales qui seront utilisées pour d’autres enfants. Il y a aussi des adultes qui ne répondent pas aux appels à se faire vacciner, alors qu’ils sont cependant libres.  

Comme toujours, l’OMS est à la recherche d’une conformité à 100% avec tous les calendriers vaccinaux. L’OMS avertit le monde  que « l’hésitation à vacciner » provoque des maladies et des décès inutiles. L’OMS croit que, chaque année, 1,5 millions d’enfants meurent chaque année de maladies qui pourraient être évitées par les vaccins. [1,2]  

Le communiqué de presse de l’OMS du 18 août 2015 a stipulé :  

S’ils sont utilisés, les vaccins ne peuvent qu’améliorer la santé et prévenir les décès. Les programmes de vaccination doivent être en mesure d’atteindre et de maintenir des taux élevés de vaccination. Le problème de « l’hésitation à vacciner » devient de plus en plus une question importante pour les programmes de vaccination des différents pays. [3]
Le communiqué de presse de l’OMS précise :  

Il n’y a pas de solution magique ou de stratégie qui pourrait fonctionner pour tous les cas d’ « hésitation à vacciner ». L’ampleur des problèmes et leur règlement varient. Ils doivent être diagnostiqués pour chaque cas particulier pour permettre d’élaborer des stratégies sur mesure pour faire accepter les vaccins.[4] (Souligné par l’auteur).  

L’OMS  travaille à construire l’image dans l’esprit du public que « l’hésitation à vacciner » est un état, une pathologie qui nécessite un diagnostic. C’est un peu comme s’il s’agissait d’une maladie, d’une maladie mentale qu’ils ont l’intention de traiter  par le biais  de diverses stratégies de contrôle de l’esprit.
Bien sûr, ils n’utilisent pas des morts tels que manipulation et contrôle de l’esprit – ils utilisent uniquement des mots politiquement corrects et respectueux pour décrire leurs projets.. Les documents de planification de l’OMS parlent toujours de la promotion du bien de l’humanité, de l’amélioration de la condition des plus pauvres, de résoudre l’inégalité du traitement des femmes et des filles, de la protection de l’environnement par rapport aux dégâts que peut lui infliger l’activité humaine. Ils incarnent en fait le Big Brother qui nous aidera tous à vivre dans une utopie de leur conception et création.
L’OMS ne nous dirait jamais : « nous allons vous harceler jusqu’à ce que vous changiez d’avis par rapport à l’acceptation des programmes vaccinaux. Au lieu de cela, ils disent: « une communication efficace est essentielle pour dissiper les craintes, répondre aux préoccupations et promouvoir l’acceptation de la vaccination [5] Mais le résultat est toujours le même : ils suivent un plan délibéré pour éliminer toute opposition à la vaccination.

  L’OMS fera tout ce qu’il faut pour obtenir la coopération avec leur programme de vaccination parce qu’ils ne croient pas que quiconque devrait être autorité à interférer avec leur ordre du jour. Dans le paragraphe suivant émanant de l’OMS, ils parlent des personnes qui hésitent comme des gens qui sont « affectés » par l’hésitation à vacciner. Ils parlent de cette hésitation à vacciner comme s’il s’agissait d’une maladie qui nécessite un traitement. Veuillez, s’il vous plaît, noter les mots que j’ai mis en italique.  

Le communiqué de presse signalait : l’hésitation à vacciner n’est pas seulement un problème des pays à revenu élevé, mais est un problème mondial complexe en évolution rapide et qui varie considérablement d’un pays à l’autre. Les entrevues avec les responsables de la vaccination des régions où l’OMS a accès  révèlent que  certains cas particuliers de minorités ethniques rurales, ou de communautés isolées ont été touchées alors que dans d’autres régions urbaines plus riches, les communautés ont exprimé leurs préoccupations sur la sécurité des vaccins. Dans certaines régions, les préoccupations sont le fait de sous-groupes d’objecteurs religieux ou philosophiques. [6]
En d’autres termes, certaines personnes sont « touchées » par la maladie de ‘l’hésitation à vacciner ». Un symptôme de la maladie est le fait d’être « préoccupé par la sécurité des vaccins ».Un commun dénominateur de la maladie est de faire partie d’un groupe de personnes concernées par le problème qu’ils baptisent du nom « d’objecteurs ». Donc, si vous remettez en question l’innocuité des vaccins et l’objet de leur utilisation, vous devez alors savoir que l’OMS est en train d’élaborer un programme de traitement juste pour vous !
Les bioéthiciens ciblent l’allaitement et la parenté « naturelles »
Deux bioéthiciens de l’Université de Pennsylvanie, Jessica Martucci et Anne Barnhilkl sont préoccupés par les enfants qui ne reçoivent pas les vaccins. Dans un de leurs derniers articles, ils n’utilisent pas l’expression «  hésitation  à vacciner », mais recommandent que les professionnels de santé éliminent le mot « naturel » de leur vocabulaire en guise de stratégie pour rendre plus facile l’acceptation des parents à faire vacciner leur enfant.
Dans leur article qui a été publié dans le numéro d’avril de Pediatrics, ils décrivent l’influence puissante que le mot « naturel » peut exercer. Ils cherchent aussi à identifier les groupes de personnes qui sont les plus susceptibles d’être influencées par ce mot. Ils déclarent :
Le mot « naturel » évoque un sentiment de pureté, de bonté et d’innocuité. Par contre, les substances synthétiques, produits et technologies de masse produits par l’industrie (notamment les vaccins) sont considérés comme « contre nature » et risquent souvent d’éveiller soupçons et méfiance. Une partie de ce système de valeurs est la perception que ce qui est naturel est plus sûr, plus sain et moins risqué. Cet intérêt pour le « naturel » par rapport à ce qui est « contre nature » apparait dans une série de questions scientifiques et médicales contemporaines au-delà de la vaccination, y compris dans le rejet d’aliments génétiquement modifiés.  

On observe une préférence pour les aliments biologiques cultivés de manière traditionnelle, et un rejet des technologies de reproduction assistée, comme aussi tout ce qui a trait au domaine des toxines environnementales et à la fluoration de l’eau. Une grande partie de l’intérêt pour les médecines complémentaires et alternatives repose également sur le fait que « les idées et techniques naturelles paraissent plus sûres, plus douces et bénignes. » Dans certains cas, cependant, ce point de vue que le « naturel » est synonyme de « mieux » peut contrer des objectifs spécifiques de santé publique [7] (souligné par l’auteur) Il est assez facile de comprendre les auteurs qui disent que les parents qui veulent nourrir leur bébé avec le lait naturel de la mère, qui se nourrissent de produits biologiques, utilisent des produits naturels, puissent tirer des conclusions déraisonnables quand ils envisagent de faire vacciner leurs enfants.
Leur préoccupation d’utiliser des produits naturels pourrait faire croire que les vaccins ne sont pas naturels et devraient donc être évités.. Les auteurs exhortent ceux qui diffusent des programmes de santé de cesser d’utiliser le mot « naturel » dans l’espoir de favoriser des taux plus élevés de vaccination.
Dans le résumé de leur article, ils déclarent :  

Quelle que soit l’éthique de faire appel à la nature quand il s’agit de la promotion de l’allaitement maternel, il convient de se rendre compte que cette manière de voir les choses soulève des préoccupations pratiques. L’option « naturel »  ne correspond pas toujours aux objectifs de santé publique. Si ce qui est « naturel » est considéré comme « mieux » en ce qui concerne l’allaitement maternel, comment pouvoir s’attendre à ce que des mères puissent ignorer cette vision du monde puissante et profondément convaincante quand il est question de vacciner leur enfant ? Si la promotion de l’allaitement maternel fait sous-entendre que ce qui est « fabriqué en usine » est risqué ou insalubre, que risquent de conclure les parents quand il s’agira de choisir entre des vaccins fabriqués en usine et la stimulation « naturelle » de l’immunité ? Il nous faudrait réfléchir à deux fois avant d’utiliser le mot « naturel » dans la promotion de l’allaitement maternel. [8]

  Je me demande vraiment si ceux qui ne veulent pas des vaccins sont vraiment si faibles d’esprit et si facilement persuadés que la suppression du mot « naturel »  va soudainement leur faire perdre toute hésitation par rapport aux vaccins. J’en doute beaucoup !

L’hésitation à vacciner pourrait-elle devenir une maladie mentale ?
Je me demande combien de temps il faudra avant que l’OMS intensifie son programme de vaccination et finisse par déclarer que « l’hésitation à vacciner » est une maladie mentale. Il y a déjà des gens qui croient que le souci d’éviter de la nourriture  génétiquement modifiée, qui ont le désir de manger une nourriture riche en nutriments, une nourriture naturelle et bio, constituent déjà autant de signes d’une maladie mentale. Ils appellent cette maladie Orthorexia nervosa. [9] (je suis vraiment sérieux !).  

Bien sûr, les troubles alimentaires peuvent être de graves problèmes. Je ne veux nullement minimiser la souffrance de ceux qui sont pris au piège d’habitudes alimentaires incontrôlables. Mais, le choix de manger des aliments non transformés  et qui ne sont pas imprégnés de produits chimiques toxiques ou d’ingrédients OGM, ne constitue pas en soi un trouble alimentaire ou une maladie mentale. De la même manière, le choix d’éviter les vaccins ne devrait pas être considéré comme une déficience mentale qui devrait être traitée par les programmes de propagande de l’OMS.
L’OMS a peut-être besoin d’une autre expression que « hésitation à vacciner ». 

A mon avis, avant que l’expression « hésitation à vacciner » ne soit prise au sérieux par les gouvernements du monde, il sera nécessaire de trouver une meilleure expression. Peut-être faudrait-il l’appeler Immunorexia Nervosa ? Peut-être des expressions comme phobie vaccinale familiale, Hystérie au sujet des produits injectables, pourraient attirer l’attention des dirigeants du monde entier ? Parmi toutes ces expressions, il y en a une qui aurait ma préférence : trouble oppositionnel  de méfiance et d’insécurité antivaccinaliste (TOMIA).
« L'hésitation à vacciner » est vraiment une expression trop simple qui manque de piquant. Avec une expression aussi fade et inoffensive, les campagnes de marketing de l’OMS ne parviendront guère à susciter la peur. Donner un nom qui suggère une maladie grave pourrait créer la peur et la haine dans l’esprit des populations et pourrait inciter les pays à faire don de millions de dollars pour le traitement de cette nouvelle maladie mentale. Peut-être que l’OMS pourrait faire un accord avec l’Association Psychiatrique Américaine pour insérer TOMIA dans leur prochaine version du Manuel diagnostic des troubles mentaux, de sorte que les personnes qui choisissent de ne pas vacciner pourraient être officiellement étiquetées comme étant atteintes d’une maladie mentale.
Peut-être avez-vous besoin d’un médicament pour traiter TOMIA ?
L’OMS pourrait aussi peut-être s’arranger avec Big Pharma, et voir s’il ne serait pas possible de créer un médicament pour traiter la maladie.
L’OMS pourrait lancer de grands sondages à la télévision. « Avez-vous peur de faire administrer des vaccins à vos enfants ? » Vous êtes peut-être atteints de TOMIA ? Consultez votre médecin qui saura trouver le médicament adéquat. »

  Le CDC américain pourrait créer une base de données obligatoire qui contiendrait les noms de tous les parents qui ne veulent pas faire vacciner leurs enfants. Cette liste pourrait être communiquée au Département des services sociaux pour travailleurs. Ce Département pourrait exiger des parents qui se trouvent sur la liste, soit de prendre le médicament adéquat pour leur maladie mentale, soit abandonner leurs enfants à l’état.  

Seriez-vous déjà atteints par la maladie TOMIA ?
Comment pourriez-vous savoir si vous n’êtes pas déjà atteints ? J’ai établi toute une série de questions qui pourraient vous permettre d’établir votre propre diagnostic de TOMIA. Il s’agit de questions que les responsables OMS de la vaccination pourraient bien nous poser dans le futur. Combien de ces questions pourraient décrire votre position ? Si vous pensez que la plupart de ces questions font allusion à votre cas personnel, alors méfiez-vous ! Vous pourriez bientôt être ciblés, surtout si vous avez encore des enfants à votre charge. 

  1. Vous méfiez-vous de la FDA, du CDC, de Big Pharma et des associations médicales allopathiques, et pensez-vous que le programme de développement de vaccins n’est nullement dans votre meilleur intérêt ?
  2. Souhaitez-vous pouvoir vivre votre vie sans penser aux programmes de vaccinations forcées prévues pour vous et vos enfants ?
  3. Est-ce qu’il vous semble impossible  de garder la bouche fermée quand des amis ou des membres de votre famille parlent avec enthousiasme de l’importance de se faire vacciner ?
  4. Eprouvez-vous des difficultés à contrôler votre colère quand vous voyez dans les pharmacies et les grands magasins des affiches qui vous incitent à vous faire vacciner contre la grippe, ou quand vous apprenez que certaines écoles font vacciner les enfants sans autorisation parentale ?
  5. Etes-vous scandalisé quand vous apprenez qu’un enfant est décédé ou handicapé à vie après avoir reçu un vaccin ?
  6. Vous sentez-vous injustement attaqué quand des gens vous critiquent ou vous blâment pour la propagation de la rougeole ou d’autres maladies, parce que vous ne croyez pas à la vaccination et que vous ne faites pas vacciner vos enfants ?
  7. Avez-vous l’impression d’avoir le contrôle sur votre vie si vous vous sentez capable d’éviter les vaccinations pour vous-même et pour vos enfants ?
  8. Pensez-vous que le naturel est préférable et que votre famille se portera nettement mieux si vous ne mangez pas de la nourriture qui contient des OGM et des produits chimiques toxiques, si vous ne recevez pas de vaccins qui contiennent des substances toxiques comme le mercure, l’aluminium et présentent de nombreux dangers ?
  9. Etes-vous fiers d’être anti-vaccins et vous demandez-vous comment il est possible que d’autres personnes puissent envisager de se faire vacciner étant donné tous les éléments de preuves de dommages que les vaccins peuvent causer ?
  10. Vos efforts pour éviter les vaccins pour vous-même et votre famille sont-ils susceptibles de mettre en péril votre vie de famille, votre joie de vivre et vos activités créatrices ?
Je dois avouer ne pas faire très belle figure dans ce genre de test. J’ai répondu OUI à toutes les questions sauf aux deux dernières.  

Conclusion : « La folie vaccinale » est bien réelle 

Jusqu’au jour sombre où la vaccination deviendra obligatoire  pour tout le monde, je vais continuer à vivre avec maladie. Je voudrais ne pas avoir à souffrir de TOMIA, mais tout cela est hors de mon contrôle. Je suppose que cette toute dernière déclaration confirme bien le fait  que je souffre vraiment de TOMIA. Tous ceux qui sont atteints de la maladie devraient célébrer la chose parce qu’ils ne sont pas tombés dans le mensonge, dans les tromperies et la manipulation de Big Pharma et de l’OMS.  

TOMIA est bien sûr une maladie fictive, mais la folie des vaccins est malheureusement bien réelle ! C’est cette folie vaccinale qui contrôle tout le programme de vaccination de l’Organisation Mondiale de la Santé et les programmes de recherches de Big Pharma  qui envisagent  d’ajouter des centaines de nouveaux vaccins au cours des prochaines années.  

Le fait d’utiliser tout le potentiel de notre intelligence pour évaluer les dommages possibles que font courir les vaccins ne mérite pas d’être étiqueté comme une maladie qui nécessiterait un traitement mis au point par l’OMS.  

L’hésitation à vacciner n’est pas un problème à résoudre ou une maladie à guérir, mais un signe que le château de cartes que Big Pharma a construit commence à s’effondrer. Les gens  qui se soucient de leur santé et de celle de leurs enfants devraient justement hésiter à vacciner ! Il s’agit ici du signe d’un esprit qui est capable de penser librement, d’un esprit qu’il n’est pas facile de manipuler.  

Je continue à prier pour que la folie qui a saisi l’Organisation Mondiale de la Santé, les organismes de Santé publique et Big Pharma puisse rapidement guérir.
Qu’ils le sachent ou ne le sachent pas, nous devons aussi rappeler à tous que les vaccins provoquent des dommages.

  Je vais continuer à prier jusqu’à ce que le tollé public contre les vaccins ait atteint un niveau où le cartel mondial du vaccin commence à reculer. Je vais continuer à vivre un style de vie naturel et sain et continuer à faire de mon mieux pour vivre avec TOMIA.

Story Number: NNS160808-14Release Date: 8/8/2016 12:42:00 PM 

By Staff Sgt. Tiffany DeNault, Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa Public Affairs Office

160610-F-HE651-113 CAMP LEMONNIER, Djibouti (June 10, 2016) Sailors assigned to Coast Riverine Squadron 8 complete patrol boat recovery in the Port of Djibouti. U.S. 6th Fleet, headquartered in Naples, Italy, conducts the full spectrum of joint and naval operations, often in concert with allied, joint, and interagency partners, in order to advance U.S. national interests and security and stability in Europe and Africa. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Christopher Reel/Released)

CAMP LEMONNIER, Djibouti (NNS) -- U.S. Navy Cmdr. Erick Bacho, Expeditionary Medical Facility Behavior Health and Ancillary Services director, hit the ground running upon arriving to Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, resulting in increased mental health resilience for approximately 300 Soldiers from the East African Response Force (EARF).

"When I first got here six months ago, one of the first things I did was an assessment of what the situation is, what am I walking into and who is the biggest source of 'payment' for me in terms of workload," said Bacho, who has a background in behavioral medicine and psychopharmacologies.

Bacho's predecessor informed him that most of their clients came from the Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa (CJTF-HOA) side of Camp Lemonnier, specifically, the EARF. Bacho stated 6o percent of their clients came from HOA, and of that 60 percent, 30 percent came from the EARF.

During that time, there were three people who needed to be medically evacuated -- two from the infantry unit and one from the EARF. Additionally, there was one suicide.

The numbers don't end there. Only 10 percent of the camp's population saw the military family life counselor (MFLC), chaplain, USO or Red Cross during the previous assessment period, which led to the assumption that the other 90 percent of the population was "fine," according to Bacho.

However, the three medically evacuated clients and suicide came from the 90 percent pool, and they were never seen until it was too late or the situation became too significant to be taken care of on site.

"So the assumption that the 90 percent must be fine because they weren't seeing us, was wrong," Bacho said.

Since the system in place only saw those who came to the clinic for help, Bacho decided he needed to create an outreach program. He set out to establish a more assertive program to find those service members who weren't seeking help and were getting worse on their own.

Realizing he was only one person providing service to approximately 5,000 personnel, Bacho knew he needed help. He gathered the MFLC, chaplains, Red Cross, and USO together to train on how to identify those in need and some basic crisis counseling skills.

"So that effort was something I started, and the group is called Camp Lemonnier's Afya Ya Akili, which in Swahili means 'healthy mind' or 'resilient mind,'" said Bacho. "While they [were] doing outreach and resiliency trainings, [it] then allowed me to deliver very specific packages of care to the EARF."

Bacho directed his focus to EARF's Bravo Company, 3rd Battalion, 15th Infantry Regiment. With 3-15 Inf. Rgt. leadership's support, Bacho met with approximately 20 Soldiers for one hour, once a week for a month. In the small group setting, he was able to teach them problem-solving techniques using "Moving Forward: A Problem-Solving Approach to Achieving Life's Goals," a program already in practice by the Department of Defense and Department of Veterans Affairs.

He taught them four "tool-kits" to help build resilience and work through daily or long-term issues. He began by teaching the value of externalization, simplification and visualization and how to apply them to a particular issue. The next lesson was called "Stop, Slow Down, Think, Then Act" to help them understand how the brain processes information. Then the last two classes were going over problem-solving plans for realistic issues in the Soldiers' lives.

"Also on Fridays, during the weekend safety brief, I would give very targeted, specific resiliency packages to the whole company," said Bacho. "We made sure that every week they got a download of something helpful for them to become more resilient to relieve stressors, and it sent a clear message that we are watching them; we are concerned and we care."

As of last month, Bacho was able to meet with the whole Bravo company, approximately 300 Soldiers, and he found the results astonishing.

"When compared to other units, for example, one unit had 44 serious incidence compared to the Soldiers from the 3-15 [who] had zero," said Bacho. "That is remarkable. Now how was I doing that? Education campaigning. That wasn't therapy, it was just education."

The mental health clinic, chaplains, MFLC, Red Cross and USO continue to raise mental health awareness and educate people on the available camp services through events and trainings. They held the Djibouti 22, Operation Desert Stroll July 22, to help with their awareness efforts.

"If we could do the program for each unit on camp, I think we could see the same results -- reduced behavioral problems, reduced medical evacuations, reduced suicide, increased resilience and better problem solving," said Bacho. "My theory is if you increase their resilience and teach them to solve problems more effectively, they won't end up having behavioral problems, nor require significant mental health interventions."

Camp Lemonnier provides, operates and sustains superior service in support of combat readiness along with security of ships and aircraft detachments and personnel for regional and combat command requirements, enabling operations for the Horn of Africa while fostering positive U.S.-African nation relations. Camp Lemonnier enables the forward operations and responsiveness of U.S. and allied forces in support of Navy Region Europe, Africa, Southwest Asia's mission to provide services to the fleet, fighter, and family.

In the psychiatric bible of the Jesuits who has control over all psychiatric and health care + hospitals...

March 8, 2015 by Anya V

In an attempt to curb the mass rush for food change and reform, psychiatry has green lighted a public relations push to spread awareness about their new buzzword “orthorexia nervosa,” defined as “a pathological obsession for biologically pure and healthy nutrition.” In other words, experts are saying that our demand for nutrient-dense, healthful food is a mental disorder that must be treated.

CNN, Fast Company, Popular Science, and other top outlets have all began to trumpet the talking points on cue relatively recently:

“Orthorexia nervosa is a label designated to those who are concerned about eating healthy. Characterized by disordered eating fueled by a desire for “clean” or “healthy” foods, those diagnosed with the condition are overly pre-occupied with the nutritional makeup of what they eat”.

In short, if you turn your back on low quality, corporate food containing known cancer causing toxic additives and a rich history of dishonesty rooted in a continuous “profits over people” modus operandi, then you may suffer from a mental illness. The cherry on top is that if you have the pseudo-science labeled disorder of orthorexia nervosa, you will be prescribed known toxic, pharmaceutical drugs from some of the same conglomerate corporations that you are trying to avoid by eating healthy in the first place.

Orthorexia has not yet found its way into the latest edition of the psychiatric bible, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), yet is commonly being lumped in with other eating disorders. Stepping back and looking at the ones pushing this label on us shows highly questionable motives.

Psychiatry as a whole is deeply in bed with a pharmaceutical industry that makes the drugs to “treat” every one of these “disorders.” It is often these companies that are wielding influence behind the scenes to invent more mental health categories with their toxic products as the answer. This latest media push to popularize orthorexia as a mental disorder with a goal to marginalize or derail the food revolution appears to have been dead on arrival.

The psychiatric community has even deemed creativity to be a mental illness.

As the people continue to walk away from the broken medical and agricultural/food systems like any abusive relationship, the food makers are willing to do anything to maintain their waning control. Organic and non-GMO food markets have exploded in the last 5 years, so much so that any corporation wishing to not follow the trend risks financial hardship or ruin. In addition, pharmaceutical companies are feeling the strain as less people want their toxic medications and crippling side effects.

Perhaps some people to take it too far to the point of self-harm, but the problem we face with a toxic food system is a much larger threat. In closing, let’s be aware of some of the overall BS fed to us by the pharmaceutical bankrolled industry of psychiatry. When healthy eating and creativity are mental issues, something is amiss.

I've decided to take down the "Basic Exorcism Rite" from this site. Although I attempted to preface the rite with cautions about misinterpretation, I can no longer lend any support whatsoever to the idea of E.G.C. clergy--or anyone else--performing exorcisms as a service to others. Even beginning Magicians can perform their own banishing rituals, and people who have genuine symptoms of mental illness should be encouraged to seek help from competent mental health professionals.

My original intent with the Basic Exorcism Rite was to present a Thelemic version of a traditional sacerdotal function of Western churches in terms of mythopoetic, ceremonial Magick. Unfortunately, the concept of exorcism comes with some rather ugly, and sticky, baggage. Not only is the concept of "spirit possession" largely a superstitious response to the symptoms of mental illness (or even, in some cases, social or religious nonconformity or disobedience); but the idea that the clergy have the power--and the moral right--to "cure" such behavior lends itself too easily to a whole spectrum of abuses.

Although I have never heard of any such abuses taking place within E.G.C., I have heard recent news accounts of horrendous examples of abusive exorcisms (and their brutal cousins, witch hunts) within what we may term the superstitious religions. I do not think such abusive practices should be tolerated, even under the banner of religious freedom; Rolling Eyes and I do not wish my writings to ever be cited--by anyone--in countenancing such practices.

Even though it appears that the practice of exorcism has been widely ignored within E.G.C. anyway, I think it is time for us to relegate this particular aspect of the traditional sacerdotal arts to the museum of obsolete religious artifacts, once and for all.

Nothing new under the sun. We are just human slaves for them

Wednesday, December 07, 2016 by: Vicki Batts
Tags: Clinical trials, ecstasy for PTSD, FDA, mdma

(NaturalNews) Could ecstasy soon be hitting a pharmacy near you? The FDA recently approved of a large-scale, Phase 3 clinical trial of MDMA for post-traumatic stress disorder. The approval follows a series of small-scale studies that have indicated that small amounts of the drug can provide effective treatment for the illness.

While it may sound like a fun time, for those who suffer with PTSD, MDMA has proven that it can provide serious, and much needed, relief. C.J. Hardin, a  veteran who served three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, suffered with severe PTSD that left him divorced and struggling with alcoholism and suicidal thoughts. Hardin says he cut himself off from the world completely, noting that he tried psychotherapy, group therapy and almost a dozen different psychiatric medications.

“Nothing worked for me, so I put aside the idea that I could get better,” he said in his interview with The New York Times.

But in 2013, Hardin was able to take part in a small clinical trial of MDMA that would prove to be something of a metamorphic experience. Hardin says, “It changed my life. It allowed me to see my trauma without fear or hesitation and finally process things and move forward.”

For the community of people fighting for the legalization of drugs such as MDMA, marijuana and LSD, FDA approval for a phase-3 study is a huge step forward. The Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) is a non-profit research and education organization that was founded in 1986 with the purpose of creating “medical, legal, and cultural contexts for people to benefit from the careful uses of psychedelics and marijuana.” MAPS has funded six Phase-2 studies that treated 130 PTSD patients with MDMA, and the organization also plans on sponsoring the Phase-3 clinical trial, which will feature at least 230 patients.

The use of MDMA in PTSD treatment would be different to the way in which medical marijuana is used. Instead of using the medication at home, reports indicate that the drug would be administered to assist in psychotherapy. During the initial trials, patients took MDMA at the beginning of their talk therapy sessions, under the supervision of a two-person team. Throughout the 12-week PTSD study, patients went through extensive psychotherapy, which involved three 8-hour MDMA sessions. The team, consisting of  psychiatric nurse Ann Mithoefer and her husband, Dr. Mithoefer, guided each patient through their past traumas while playing soothing music. Flynn, the couple’s terrier mix, often kept patients company throughout the journey.

Ann Mithoefer commented, “The medicine allows them to look at things from a different place and reclassify them. Honestly, we don’t have to do much. Each person has an innate ability to heal. We just create the right conditions.”

According to The New York Times, research shows that MDMA can do more than just change perspective. Data has indicated that MDMA can prompt the brain to release a stream of hormones and neurotransmitters that evoke feelings of trust, love and overall well-being. This stream is also capable of muting fear, as well as the negative memories that can be overpowering for patients with PTSD.

Currently, there are two drugs on the market for PTSD treatment, and neither showed substantial benefits to patients when compared to placebos during clinical trials.

Estimates indicate that between 30 and 40 percent of those suffering with PTSD are not helped by current treatment methods at all. But the promise of MDMA as a treatment for those with PTSD is very real.

Hopefully, the medicinal value of MDMA will not be overshadowed by illicit use, so that it can shine as a treatment for the thousands of Americans who suffer in silence.

Cultural identity can affect how service members and their families engage with their health care providers. A recent Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE) webinar addressed these impacts and how health care providers can help minimize them.

Our Diverse Military

Like the larger American population, those who serve their country in the military represent an intersection of people from every race, class, gender and sexual orientation.

Many Faces: Addressing Diversity in Health Care


Diversity. The changing demographics and economics of our growing multicultural world, and the long-standing disparities in the health status of people from culturally diverse backgrounds has challenged health care providers and organizations to consider cultural diversity as a priority. The purpose of this article is to present a model that will be helpful in providing culturally competent care. The concept of cultural competence is discussed, The Process of Cultural Competence in the Delivery of Healthcare Services Model is described, and a mnemonic to guide in providing culturally competent care is presented.

Many Faces: Addressing Diversity in Health Care

Diversity. It is a word that means something different to each and every person. The changing demographics and economics of our growing multicultural world and the long-standing disparities in the health status of people from culturally diverse backgrounds have challenged health care providers and organizations to consider cultural diversity as a priority. However, health care providers must realize that addressing cultural diversity goes beyond knowing the values, beliefs, practices and customs of African Americans, Asians, Hispanics/Latinos, Native Americans/Alaskan Natives, and Pacific Islanders. In addition to racial classification and national origin, there are many other faces of cultural diversity. Religious affiliation, language, physical size, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability (both physical and mental), political orientation, socio-economic status, occupational status and geographical location are but a few of the faces of diversity. This article will discuss the concept of cultural competence, describe a model of cultural competence that can be used in the delivery of health care services to address the many faces of diversity, and present a mnemonic to help in asking questions whose responses will facilitate culturally competent care.

Culture and Cultural Competence

The literature is saturated with many definitions of culture. Krober and Kluckhohn (1952/1978) cite over 164 definitions of culture. Late in the 1800s, Tylor (1871) defined culture "as that complex and whole which includes knowledge, belief, art, morals, law, custom, any other capabilities and habits acquired by man as a member of society" (p. 1).
Cultural values give an individual a sense of direction as well as meaning to life.

Cultural values give an individual a sense of direction as well as meaning to life.

These values are held on an unconscious level. There is a direct relationship between culture and health practices. In fact, of the many factors that are known to determine health beliefs and behaviors, culture is the most influential (Harwood, 1981).

To meet the needs of culturally diverse groups, health care providers must engage in the process of becoming culturally competent. Cross, Bazron, Dennis, & Isaacs (1989) define cultural competence as "a set of congruent behaviors, attitudes, and policies that come together in a system, agency, or amongst professionals and enables that system, agency or those professionals to work effectively in cross-cultural situations" (p. iv). The word competence is used because it implies having the capacity to function effectively.

In 2000, the United States Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Office of Minority Health (OMH) released national standards for culturally and linguistically appropriate services (CLAS) as a means to address and correct inequities that exist in the provision of health care to culturally and ethnically diverse groups. These standards are available at the OMH website <www.omhrc.gov/CLAS>. In an attempt to articulate elements of clinical practice that define transcultural nursing, Leuning, Swiggum, Wiegert and McCullough-Zander (2002) outlined proposed standards of transcultural nursing practice. There are currently many other resources available to nursing and other health professions that address the issue of cultural competency and the provision of culturally competent care (Figure 1).

A Model of Cultural Competence The Process of Cultural Competence in the Delivery of Healthcare Services Model is a model of cultural competence that defines cultural competence as "the process in which the nurse continuously strives to achieve the ability and availability to effectively work within the cultural context of a client individual, family or community" (Campinha-Bacote,1998, p. 6). This process requires nurses to see themselves as becoming culturally competent, rather than being culturally competent. It includes consideration of cultural desire, cultural awareness, cultural knowledge, cultural skill (conducting culturally sensitive assessments) and cultural encounters (Campinha-Bacote, 2002a). This model of cultural competence is pictorially depicted as a volcano (Figure 2), which symbolically represents that it is cultural desire which stimulates the process of cultural competence. When cultural desire erupts, it gives forth the desire to enter into the process of becoming culturally competent by being humble to the process of seeking cultural awareness, by obtaining cultural knowledge, by genuinely seeking cultural encounters, and by conducting culturally-sensitive assessments (showing cultural skill). To fully understand this model, each construct will be defined and discussed with examples coming from the many faces of diversity.

Cultural Desire Cultural desire is defined as the motivation of the nurse to "want to" engage in the process of becoming culturally aware, culturally knowledgeable, culturally skillful, and seeking cultural encounters. It stands in contrast to the feeling of "having to" participate in this process (Campinha-Bacote, 1999). Cultural desire is the pivotal and key construct of cultural competence, for it is the nurse's desire that evokes the entire process of cultural competence. This desire must come from one's aspiration, and not out of one's desperation.

Cultural desire involves the concept of caring. It has been said that people don't care how much you know, until they first know how much you care (Campinha-Bacote, 1998). Cultural desire includes a genuine passion to be open and flexible with others, to accept differences and build on similarities, and to be willing to learn from others as cultural informants. This type of learning is a life-long process which has been referred to as cultural humility (Tervalon & Murray-Garcia, 1998).

Cultural desire also involves the commitment of the nurse to care for all clients, regardless of their cultural values, beliefs, customs, or practices (Campinha-Bacote, in press, a). This may be difficult when caring for challenging patients or patients who engage in behaviors that may be in direct moral conflict with the nurse (e.g., abortion, substance abuse, spouse abuse, sexual addiction). An example of such a situation might arise when a nurse is asked to care for an Arab patient whose political and/or religious beliefs are in direct contrast to his/her beliefs. In this case, too, commitment to the process of cultural desire requires the nurse to be available to care for patients, even when there may be a natural instinct to resign oneself from the nurse- patient interaction.

One suggestion is to see the patient as a unique human being.

We all come from the same race - the human race, with similar basic human needs.
We all come from the same race - the human race, with similar basic human needs. Our goal in providing culturally responsive care is to find common ground. Berlin and Fowkes' (1982) LEARN Model can assist the nurse in this process. The mnemonic LEARN, represents the process of listening, explaining, acknowledging, recommending and negotiating. The nurse must first listen to the patient's perception of the problem. This listening must be done in a non-judgemental manner, using encouraging comments such as, "Tell me more." The second step is for the nurse to explain his/her perception of the problem. The next key step is for the nurse to acknowledge not only the differences between the two perceptions of the problem, but to acknowledge the similarities. In developing a culturally responsive approach to care, the nurse must recognize differences, but build upon the similarities. The fourth step is to make recommendations which involve the patient. Finally, the nurse is to negotiate a treatment plan, considering that it is beneficial to incorporate selected aspects of the patient's culture into the plan.

Cultural Awareness

Cultural awareness is the self-examination and in-depth exploration of one's own cultural background (Campinha-Bacote, 1999). This process involves the recognition of one's biases, prejudices, and assumptions about individuals who are different. Without being aware of the influence of one's own cultural values, there is risk that the nurse may engage in cultural imposition. Cultural imposition is the tendency to impose one's beliefs, values and patterns of behavior upon another culture (Leininger, 1978).

One example of a culturally diverse group for which the nurse may want to closely examine his/her biases and beliefs, is the group of patients with disabilities. "Disability rights advocates often criticize health professionals, citing erroneous assumptions and failure to understand the perspectives of disabled persons" (Treloar, 1999, p. 358). Treloar further states that many health care providers practice from an illness-based model of disability and are unaware of the shift toward looking at disability as a problem that exists within the environment rather than the person. Some nurses haves used the term physically-challenged to capture this contemporary shift. Treloar asserts that effective interactions with people affected by disability begin with a personal awareness of one's thoughts and feelings surrounding disability, and encourages the nurse to ask the following questions: "Do my actions support stigma, isolation, and devaluation of people with disabilities? Am I sensitive to cultural differences in response to and support of this population?" (p. 363).

Cultural Knowledge

Cultural knowledge is the process of seeking and obtaining a sound educational foundation about diverse cultural and ethnic groups (Campinha-Bacote 1998). Obtaining cultural knowledge about the patient's health-related beliefs and values involves understanding their world view. The patients' world views will explain how they interpret their illness and how it guides their thinking, doing, and being. For example, although deafness can be defined physiologically as a loss of hearing, the majority of deaf people define it culturally, not physiologically (Stebnicki & Coeling, 1999). They believe that the most important quality of deafness is not the lack of hearing, but rather participation in the Deaf culture that is based on the American Sign Language and that values pride in this culture. Knowing the cultural values of the Deaf can help these clients use their usual coping responses in the midst of illness.

Treatment efficacy is another issue to address in the process of obtaining cultural knowledge. This involves obtaining knowledge in such areas as ethnic pharmacology. Ethnic pharmacology is the study of variations in drug metabolism among ethnic groups. There are several factors that are involved in determining responses to a specific drug in ethnic groups. These factors include genetic, environmental, structural, and cultural variation in ethnic groups. For example, therapeutic ranges of lithium differs among ethnic groups. Lin, Poland, and Lesser (1986) reported that the therapeutic range of lithium for manic patients in Japan and Taiwan to be 0.4 - 0.8 mEq/L, as compared to 0.6 - 1/2 mEq/L for patients in the United States.

In seeking knowledge about specific cultural groups, Campinha-Bacote (1998) and Purnell (1998) identified four stages that a nurse goes through: unconscious incompetence,conscious incompetence, conscious competence and unconsciouscompetence. Unconscious incompetence is not being aware that one is lacking cultural knowledge. This nurse has no awareness that cultural differences exist between themselves and the patient. Conscious incompetence is the awareness that one is lacking knowledge about another culture. The nurse may have recognized this incompetence by attending workshops on cultural diversity, reading articles or books on the topic, or having direct cross-cultural experiences with patients from culturally diverse backgrounds. These nurses posses "the ‘know that’ knowledge, but not the ‘know how’ knowledge" (Campinha-Bacote, 1998). They know that culture plays an important role in nursing, but do not know how to effectively use this knowledge. Conscious competence is the intentional act of learning about the patient's culture, verifying generalizations and providing culturally responsive nursing interventions. Unconscious competence is the ability of the nurse to spontaneously provide culturally responsive care to patients from diverse cultural backgrounds. The timing of an unconsciously competent nurse appears to be "a natural" when observing their interacting with patients from diverse cultures (Campinha-Bacote, 1998).

In obtaining cultural knowledge, it is critical to remember the concept of intra-cultural variation - there is more variation within cultural groups than across cultural groups.

...there is more variation within cultural groups than across cultural groups.
No individual is a stereotype of one's culture of origin, but rather a unique blend of the diversity found within each culture, a unique accumulation of life experiences, and the process of acculturation to other cultures. Therefore, the nurse must develop the skill to conduct a cultural assessment with each patient.

Cultural Skill Cultural skill is the ability to collect relevant cultural data regarding the patient's presenting problem as well as accurately performing a culturally-based, physical assessment (Campinha-Bacote, 1999). Leininger (1978) defines a cultural assessment as a "systematic appraisal or examination of individuals, groups, and communities as to their cultural beliefs, values and practices to determine explicit needs and intervention practices within the context of the people being served (pp.85-86).

Cultural skill is also required when performing a physical assessment on ethnically diverse clients. The nurse should know how a patient's physical, biological and physiological variations influence their ability to conduct an accurate and appropriate physical evaluation (Purnell, 1998).

The literature provides the nurse with several cultural assessment tools (Giger & Davidhizar, 1999; Kleinman, Eisenburg, & Good, 1978; Purnell, 1998). However, the nurse must remember that conducting a cultural assessment is more than selecting a tool and asking the patient questions listed on the tool. The nurse's approach must be done in a culturally sensitive manner. A situation in which the nurse would need to be very culturally sensitive might arise when the nurse is collecting data regarding the sexual orientation of a patient. In such a situation the nurse can avoid offending the patient by increasing his/her skill in addressing this question with all patients, by listening with interest, and by remaining non-judgmental regarding any responses given by the patient. The nurse may need to have many encounters with patients from this cultural group in order to formulate questions that are culturally sensitive.

Cultural Encounters

Cultural encounter is the process which encourages the nurse to directly engage in face-to-face interactions with patients from culturally diverse backgrounds (Campinha-Bacote, 1998).

Interacting with patients from diverse cultural groups will refine or modify one's existing beliefs about a cultural group and will prevent stereotyping.

Interacting with patients from diverse cultural groups will refine or modify one's existing beliefs about a cultural group and will prevent stereotyping. However, the nurse must be cautious and recognize that interacting with only three or four members from a specific ethnic group does not make one an expert on the cultural group. It is possible that these three or four individuals may or may not truly represent the stated beliefs, values, and/or practices of their specific cultural group. Cultural encounters also involve an assessment of the patient's linguistic needs. Using a formally trained medical interpreter is necessary to facilitate accurate communication during the encounters. The use of untrained interpreters, friends, or family members may pose a problem due to their lack of knowledge regarding medical terminology and disease entities. This situation is heightened when children are used as interpreters. One glaring example of the failure to used a formally trained interpreter comes from the author’s experience. The case involved an obstetrical nurse who needed to communicate to her patient that she was going to deliver a stillbirth. The nurse did not speak Spanish and used the patient's 6 year old daughter to interpret to the mother that the baby was dead.

Applying the Model
This model is useful in caring for all people, because in reality we all belong to the same race - the human race, with all the same basic needs. However, it is important to remember that these needs may be expressed differently, and that "quality health care services" may mean something different for each patient. In providing these culturally responsive services, the nurse may want to consider the following question: "In caring for this cultural group, have I "ASKED" myself the right questions?" The mnemonic "ASKED" represents questions regarding desire, awareness, knowledge, skill, and encounters, and is presented in Figure 3 (Campinha-Bacote, 2002b).

Figure 3.

Cultural Competence: Have I "ASKED" Myself the Right Questions?
A warenes: Am I aware of my personal biases and prejudices towards cultural groups different than mine?
S kill: Do I have the skill to conduct a cultural assessment and perform a culturally-based physical assessment in a sensitive manner ?
K nowledge: Do I have knowledge of the patient's world view and the field of biocultural ecology?
E ncounters: How many face-to-face encounters have I had with patients from diverse cultural backgrounds?

In summary, this article discusses the concept of cultural competence and presents The Process of Cultural Competence in the Delivery of Healthcare Services Model. Using this Model includes consideration of cultural desire, cultural awareness, cultural knowledge, cultural skill, and cultural encounters. The need to recognize that this Model is useful for all clients because we are all members of the same human race is emphasized. The mnemonic "ASKED" is provided to assist nurses in using this Model in their daily practice.

Caracas - La procureure générale du Venezuela, Luisa Ortega, a demandé mardi l'ouverture de poursuites contre huit magistrats de la Cour suprême, instance réputée proche du président Nicolas Maduro, des députés de son camp répliquant en demandant une analyse psychiatrique de Mme Ortega.

Ce nouveau bras se fer intervient alors que le pays est plongé dans sa pire crise depuis des années, avec une vague de manifestations ayant fait 68 morts depuis début avril, le dernier recensé étant un policier de 41 ans, décédé mardi après avoir été blessé par balles dans l'état de Merida (ouest), selon le ministère de l'Intérieur.

Auparavant considérée comme une alliée des chavistes (du nom de Hugo Chavez, président de 1999 à 2013), Mme Ortega a multiplié ces dernières semaines les interventions critiques envers le gouvernement socialiste et elle est désormais qualifiée par eux de "traîtresse".

Mardi, elle est repartie à l'offensive en demandant l'ouverture de poursuites contre huit magistrats de la Cour suprême (TSJ), qu'elle accuse d'avoir provoqué "une rupture de l'ordre constitutionnel" en ordonnant fin mars la confiscation des prérogatives du Parlement, contrôlé par l'opposition depuis fin 2015.

C'est cette décision du TSJ, finalement annulée 48 heures plus tard, qui avait déclenché l'étincelle et depuis les manifestations exigeant le départ de M. Maduro se succèdent de façon quasi quotidienne dans le pays.

En agissant ainsi, le TSJ "donnait des pouvoirs spéciaux au président de la République notamment en matière pénale (...) et cela équivalait pratiquement à une dissolution de l'Assemblée nationale", a estimé Mme Ortega.

En réaction, les députés chavistes ont déposé mardi une demandé pour évaluer la santé mentale de la procureure. "Je demande de former une commission médicale, ce qui est du ressort du TSJ. Il est clair que cette dame n'a pas toute sa tête", a déclaré aux journalistes le député Pedro Carreño, appelant à démontrer la "démence" de la juge pour déclarer ensuite "son limogeage".

Dans un pays où la quasi-totalité des institutions sont contrôlées par le chavisme, Mme Ortega - qui a aussi dénoncé lundi des menaces contre sa famille - apparaît ces dernières semaines comme l'unique voix discordante du camp présidentiel, critiquant notamment la volonté de M. Maduro de réformer la Constitution et l'usage abusif de la force par l'armée contre les manifestants.

Lundi, elle avait contesté l'impartialité des juges du TSJ, quelques heures après le rejet par cette institution de son recours contre le projet d'Assemblée constituante.

Encore une idée "géniale" de nos chers scientifiques
Manière de zombifier et de soumettre l'esprit des humains sous le couvert de combattre la
xénophobie et de renforcer l’altruisme. Rolling Eyes L'altruisme va-t-il jusqu'à devenir de bons jihadistes? Sûrement un programme qui doit être utilisé dans les centres de réhabilitation.

il y a 15 heures

18/08/2017 – 08h00 Bonn (Breizh-Info.com) – Malgré tous les efforts de propagande des médias subventionnés, malgré tous les chantages à la famille syrienne… 61% des Français sont toujours opposés à l’accueil des migrants ! C’était le résultat d’une enquête IFOP pour Atlantico publiée le 11 août dernier.

Et si c’était de chercheurs allemands que venaient la solution pour nos élites ?

Réduire la xénophobie

De quelle manière peut-on réduire la xénophobie et renforcer l’altruisme ? C’est la question à laquelle ont tenté de répondre plusieurs chercheurs de l’université de Bonn sous la direction du psychiatre Rene Hurlemann.

Les chercheurs ont tenté de démontrer dans une étude que l’exposition à l’hormone « oxytocin » mêlée à l’augmentation de pression sociale améliorait significativement la propension à la générosité monétaire envers les migrants, même lorsque les sujets en ont une opinion défavorable. Cette étude a été publiée dans la revue Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).

Et dans cette étude, le professeur explique d’abord pourquoi les occidentaux sont défavorables aux migrants : « C’est en partie dû à l’évolution. Rolling Eyes Ce n’est qu’à travers la solidarité et la coopération à l’intérieur de son propre groupe qu’il était possible d’élever des enfants et de survivre tout en étant en compétition contre des groupes rivaux inconnus pour de faibles ressources dans les temps préhistoriques. »

Mais le professeur admet que « d’un point de vue neurobiologique, les sources de la xénophobie et de l’altruisme ne sont pas encore précisément comprises. »

Le déroulement des tests

Trois batteries de tests ont été réalisées. 183 allemands nés en Allemagne ont été testés.

Premier test : Les participants ont reçu 50 euros à distribuer ou non à 50 profils dont les besoins étaient décrits dans un petit dossier. Ils pouvaient donner entre 0 et 1 euro à chaque fois. Les personnes testées pouvaient garder l’argent en supplément.

Première surprise, les migrants pauvres ont reçu 20 % de plus que les pauvres allemands.

Deuxième test : La même configuration a été conservée mais la moitié du groupe testé a été exposé à l’hormone oxytocin via spray nasal. L’autre moitié a été exposée à un placebo. = Avec tous les produits nasal, il est très facile de contaminer et de déconnecter de très nombreuses personnes. Nous n'avons qu'à penser à tous ceux qui font de l'asthme
, qui est considéré comme une maladie chronique, et dont des milliers de personnes doivent avoir toujours avec eux un spray nasal lorsqu'arrive une crise d'asthme

Sous l’influence hormonale, les personnes ayant une attitude favorable aux migrants ont donné deux fois plus qu’avant mais les opposants aux migrants n’ont pas donné plus.

Troisième test : Même configuration que le deuxième test mais les chercheurs ont présenté aux individus la donation moyenne effectuée lors du premier test. L’idée était de rajouter une forme de pression sociale.

Résultat : « Même les personnes avec des attitudes négatives à l’égard des migrants ont donné jusqu’à 74 % plus aux réfugiés que dans le deuxième test. »

La combinaison de l’exposition à l’hormone et de l’imposition d’une pression sociale serait donc un « remède » à la xénophobie.

Mais la méthodologie de l’étude laisse clairement à désirer. D’énormes biais sont possibles. On aurait par exemple aimé une deuxième session de test, sans exposition aucune à l’hormone afin de voir si la combinaison était réellement pertinente ou bien si la pression sociale seule était suffisante.

Enfin, la finalité morale de telles expériences est clairement sujette à caution. Le contrôle des émotions d’une population à l’aide d’une drogue rappelle d’ailleurs tristement le film Equilibrium….

Communiqué de presse 

À l'occasion de la journée mondiale de l'Alzheimer le 21 septembre prochain, les centres mémoire du canton de Vaud ouvrent leurs portes au public.

Qu'est-ce qu'un bilan mémoire? Quelles sont les différentes étapes lors d'une évaluation et une prise en charge dans un centre mémoire? Le temps d'une journée, la population est invitée à découvrir les activités pratiquées dans les quatre centres régionaux vaudois:

Le Centre Leenaards de la mémoire – CHUV (10h-16h), le Centre mémoire de la Côte à Rolle (11h-16h), le Centre mémoire de l'Est vaudois à Vevey (10h-16h) ouvrent leurs portes au grand public. Divers ateliers, tests sur la mémoire et visites attendent les curieux. Le Centre mémoire Nord Broye à Montagny-près-d'Yverdon propose, quant à lui, de 13h45 à 17h45, un colloque destiné aux professionnels de la santé avec pour thème: Seniors, troubles cognitifs et conduite: nouveautés dans l'évaluation et la prise en charge.

Au CHUV, le Centre Leenaards de la mémoire s'associe avec le Service universitaire de psychiatrie de l'âge avancé (SUPAA), le Service de gériatrie et de réadaptation gériatrique et le Laboratoire de recherche en neuro-imagerie. C'est ainsi tout le bâtiment de «Mont-Paisible 16» qui ouvre ses portes au public.

En préambule à cette journée, le mercredi 20 septembre 2017, le Dr Olivier Rouaud, neurologue, adjoint au chef de service, Centre Leenaards de la mémoire donnera une conférence publique au CHUV, à Lausanne (18h30-20h30, Auditoire César-Roux): La maladie d'Alzheimer: De l'intérêt du diagnostic précoce pour la soigner à la perspective du dépistage pour la prévenir. La conférence sera suivie d'une présentation de 4 recherches en cours au CHUV, dans ce domaine.

Dans les autres centres mémoires, l'équipe de chaque entité sera présente pour guider et répondre aux questions des visiteurs, les faire participer à des tests pour évaluer leur mémoire et leur faire visiter les locaux. L'association Alzheimer-Vaud participe également à cette journée (à Rolle et au CHUV)
Cette initiative est portée par le Département de la santé et de l'action sociale, Réseaux Santé Vaud et le CHUV.

BREIZATAO – POLITIKEREZH  Le gouvernement français a passé un décret le 3 août dernier lui permettant de punir les discussions privées dont il juge le contenu hostile ou non conforme à l’idéologie officielle.

Le Décret n° 2017-1230 du 3 août 2017 « relatif aux provocations, diffamations et injures non publiques présentant un caractère raciste ou discriminatoire » doit « améliorer la lutte contre les manifestations de racisme, de sexisme et d’homophobie pouvant se produire dans des lieux non publics, comme au sein des entreprises ou des établissements scolaires ».

En d’autres termes, une discussion privée entre deux personnes pourra être réprimée beaucoup plus durement par le gouvernement.

Parmi les peines prévues en cas de discussions jugées idéologiquement déviantes par l’État Français, encourrant des peines d’amende, une interdiction de détenir une arme pendant trois ans, leur confiscation, des travaux et séances de rééducation politique.

MessagePosté le: Jeu 28 Sep - 02:23 (2017)    Sujet du message: DEBUNKING THE ‘SAVAGE INSTINCTS’ EXCUSE FOR HUMAN BEHAVIOUR / WTM CENTRES ARE OPENING UP AROUND THE WORLD! Répondre en citant



How they will use re-education program to "convice" you to change your behaviour. An other gospel : no sins, no need to repent, no need to go to the ONE who gave His life for each of us.  

Humans are aggressive and ruthlessly competitive because, like all other species, we run on animalistic instincts that make us compete at every turn — right?

Actually, no. Think about it: terms used to describe human behaviour, like egocentric, arrogant, inspired, depressed, deluded, pessimistic, optimistic, hateful, immoral, brilliant, guilt-ridden, evil, psychotic or neurotic, all recognise the involvement of our species’ fully conscious thinking mind. They demonstrate that there is a psychological dimension to our behaviour; that we don’t suffer from a genetic-opportunism-driven ‘animal condition’, but the psychologically troubled HUMAN CONDITION.
In this very short video, WTM member Tony Gowing uses Jeremy Griffith’s explanation of the human condition to explain that humans’ selfish behaviour is NOT a product of savage animal instincts within us, but the result of a psychosis that can be healed through understanding — a revelation that has the power to transform the human race.
So, in case you haven’t already watched this exposé of the dishonest way we humans have been excusing our selfish behaviour, we urge you to watch it now and learn about the real reason.

For further reading on the false, savage instincts excuse for our selfish behaviour, and mechanistic science’s role in its use, we recommend you read Part 1 of Transform Your Life And Save The World, or chapter 2 of FREEDOM.

MessagePosté le: Jeu 28 Sep - 02:28 (2017)    Sujet du message: NHRC TALKS READINESS, RESILIENCE WITH 21st CENTURY SAILOR DIRECTOR Répondre en citant


Story Number: NNS170927-06Release Date: 9/27/2017 10:29:00 AM  

From Naval Health Research Center Public Affairs

SAN DIEGO (NNS) -- Rear Adm. Karl Thomas, director, 21st Century Sailor Office, met with researchers at the Naval Health Research Center (NHRC), Sept. 20, to learn more about how science can help Sailors overcome adversity and thrive.

"The research we conduct at NHRC aligns nicely with the goals of the 21st Century Sailor Office, which is to maximize total force fitness by promoting resiliency," said Capt. Marshall Monteville, NHRC's commanding officer. "At NHRC, our research aims to promote the physical and mental readiness, health and resiliency of warfighters."

From the work being done by NHRC's Health and Behavioral Sciences Department to develop programs that promote healthy behaviors, to the sleep studies being conducted by scientists in the Warfighter Performance Department, optimizing readiness and warfighter health is NHRC's mission, said Monteville.

During Thomas' visit, he learned about specific studies underway in support of 21st Century Sailor initiatives, as well as NHRC's capabilities and how they could support Sailors and families with future research initiatives.

Jay Heaney, environmental physiologist, discussed his physical readiness research, including body composition assessment guidance and metrics and scoring criteria for the Physical Readiness Test (PRT). Heaney and his team have future plans to evaluate the PRT with the aim of developing an alternate assessment that is more operationally relevant.

"Physical readiness is not about how many sit-ups and pushups you can do," said Heaney. "It's about your ability to respond to an emergent situation in an operational environment."

Thomas also learned about NHRC's health and behavioral research to reduce service members' risky and destructive behaviors and promote positive, healthy ones.

"One research focus is identifying risk and protective factors for psychological and behavioral health problems," said Cindy Thomsen, department head for NHRC's health and behavioral sciences. "We can then develop interventions for individuals who are not on a good path."

Thomsen also talked about several workbooks her team has developed to support the well-being of service members.

* The "Post-Deployment User's Guide" - a workbook to help service members dealing with behavioral health challenges following deployment
* "The Docs" - a graphic novel for Navy hospital corpsmen that highlights the psychological challenges they may face in combat
* "Life After Service" - a workbook for transitioning services members with tips and resources for managing behavioral health concerns as they leave the military
* The "Navy Corpsman Wellness Guide" - a stress management guide for reducing caregiver stress

Thomas also toured the Warfighter Performance Laboratory to learn how NHRC leverages science to address issues that impact readiness, including sleep and fatigue mitigation, injury prevention and rehabilitation, and environmental physiology.

During his tour, Thomas was able to see NHRC's cutting-edge research tools, including the Computer Assisted Rehabilitation Environment (CAREN), an immersive virtual reality system; a sleep and fatigue lab; and an environmental chamber, a large structure that can simulate environments with temperatures ranging from -23°F to 130°F. Having each of these complementary research capabilities under one roof fosters collaboration and enables a wide range of research possibilities.

"It was an honor to have Rear Admiral Thomas visit and learn what NHRC has done, is doing, and can do to support the 21st Century Sailor Office," said Monteville. "Ultimately, we are all targeting the same goal: optimizing the readiness and resiliency of our Sailors and their families."

As the DoD's premier deployment health research center, NHRC's cutting-edge research and development is used to optimize the operational health and readiness of the nation's armed forces. In proximity to more than 95,000 active duty service members, world-class universities, and industry partners, NHRC sets the standard in joint ventures, innovation, and translational research.

It's not a health care problem, it's a sin, something the Jesuit order dosent't want you know. Now, the ones who refuse to embrase this sin will be consider as mentally ill and be send to reeducation program to receive some 'good education' to change their view on this subject.

As of 2018, the World Health Organization (WHO) list of psychological disorders will no longer include trans people. This adjustment also reflects a changed attitude in society. The Swiss news programme '10vor10' met Stefanie Hetjens, who talks about her life as a trans woman. (SRF/swissinfo.ch)

MessagePosté le: Jeu 11 Jan - 02:52 (2018)    Sujet du message: TRUMP SIGNS ORDER TO IMPROVE MENTAL HEALTH RESOURCES FOR TRANSITIONING VETERANS Répondre en citant


Story Number: NNS180110-03Release Date: 1/10/2018 11:08:00 AM  

From Department of Defense
WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Transitioning service members and veterans can now receive up to a year of mental health care from the Veterans Affairs (VA) Department after discharge from the service, according to an executive order President Donald J. Trump signed Jan. 10.

The order, "Supporting Our Veterans During Their Transition From Uniformed Service to Civilian Life," directs the Defense, Veterans Affairs and Homeland Security departments to develop a joint action plan to ensure the 60 percent of new veterans who now do not qualify for enrollment in health care -- primarily because of a lack of verified service connection related to the medical issue at hand -- will receive treatment and access to services for mental health care for one year following their separation from service.

"We look forward to continuing our partnership with the VA to ensure veterans who have served our country continue to receive the important mental health care and services they need and deserve," said Defense Secretary James N. Mattis.

"We want them to get the highest care and the care that they so richly deserve and I've been working very hard on that with [VA Secretary David J. Shulkin] and with everybody. It's something that is a top priority," the president said. "We will not rest until all of America's great veterans receive the care they've earned through their incredible service and sacrifice to our country."

Shulkin noted that as service members transition to veteran status, they face higher risk of suicide and mental health difficulties. "During this critical phase, many transitioning service members may not qualify for enrollment in health care," he said. "The focus of this executive order is to coordinate federal assets to close that gap."

Three-Department Approach

The three departments will work to expand mental health programs and other resources to new veterans in the year following departure from uniformed service, including eliminating prior time limits and to:

-- Expand peer community outreach and group sessions in the VA Whole Health initiative from 18 Whole Health flagship facilities to all facilities. Whole Health includes wellness and establishing individual health goals.

-- Extend DoD's "Be There Peer Support Call and Outreach Center" services to provide peer support for veterans in the year following separation from uniformed service.

-- Expand the DoD's Military OneSource, which offers resources to active duty members, to include services to separating service members to one year beyond service separation.

Serving Their Country

"The Department of Homeland Security is where many veterans find a second opportunity to serve their country - nearly 28 percent of our workforce has served in the armed forces, in addition to the 49,000 active-duty members of the United States Coast Guard," said Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen M. Nielsen.

"This critically important executive order will provide our service members with the support they need as they transition to civilian life," she added. "These dedicated men and women have put their lives on the line to protect our nation and our American way of life, and we owe them a debt we can never repay. We look forward to working with the VA and DoD to implement the president's [executive order]."

In signing this executive order, Shulkin said, the president has provided "clear guidance to further ensure our veterans and their families know that we are focusing on ways to improve their ability to move forward and achieve their goals in life after service."
