Brain Prescription Drug Warnings
Without a healthy body-input, mental health is an impossible goal. People
tend be unrealistic about what substances they can safely ingest, inhale and
inject into their bodies. Small amounts of alcohol and other chemicals easily
and profoundly affect their mind. They believe that they are tougher than they
really are. Many environmental chemicals, illegal and legal drugs target brain
function, often with tragic results.
Dr Gislason stated: "I have progressed
from being an enthusiastic supporter of psychotropic drug research and the
therapeutic use of mind drugs 30 years ago, to a disenchanted skeptic who is
convinced that drug prescriptions to change mood, attitude, thinking and memory
are mostly ill-advised and may often be harmful.
I argue that responsible adults need to become better informed about
prescription drugs and exercise constraint when seeking and accepting
prescriptions that alter their brain function.
I also argue that prescriptions for psychotropic drugs for children and the
elderly are increasing unreasonably and need to be voluntarily constrained by
physicians, resisted by family members and controlled by government regulators."
Many, if not most, humans alter their consciousness and behavior by
deliberately consuming chemicals to alter they way their brain works. The
general principal is that materials that enter human noses and mouths play a
role in determining the nature and operation of their mind. We could think of
this as the local molecular flow through the brain that alters, expands or
contracts the contents of the mind.
The brain, as the organ of mind, is the receiving set for the wisdom of the
universe. If the receiver is out of tune, not working properly, the wisdom of
the universe is either not received at all or the message is garbled. Drugs
bought on the street and in pharmacies that target the brain are used
excessively and inappropriately adding to increasing numbers of disturbed and
dysfunctional people. Because some brain dysfunction compromises judgment,
learning and motivation, family members, friends and professional advisors often
have to initiate drug withdrawal and provide the right direction and support.
