"If you, a loved one, or anyone you know is taking drugs recommended by an MD or Psychiatrist for Anxiety, Depression, Bi-Polar, ADHD, Obsessive Compulsive, Schizophrenia etc... then this film is an absolute must watch."
- James Colquhoun - Producer Director, 'Food Matters'

The 'Marketing of Madness' is the definitive documentary on the psychiatric drugging industry. Here is the real story of the high income partnership between psychiatry and drug companies that has created an $80 billion psychotropic drug profit centre.

But appearances are deceiving. How valid are psychiatrists’ diagnoses – and how safe are their drugs? Digging deep beneath the corporate veneer, this three-part documentary exposes the truth behind the slick marketing schemes and scientific deceit that conceal dangerous and often deadly sales campaigns.

In this film you'll discover

  • Many of the drugs side effects may actually make your ‘mental illness’ worse
  • Psychiatric drugs can induce aggression or depression
  • Some psychotropic drugs prescribed to children are more addictive than cocaine
  • Psychiatric diagnoses appear to be based on dubious science. Of the 297 mental disorders contained with the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, none can be objectively measured by pathological tests. Mental illness symptoms within this manual are arbitrarily assigned by a subjective voting system in a psychiatric panel
  • It is estimated that 100 million people globally use psychotropic drugs

The Marketing of Madness exposes the real insanity in our psychiatric ‘health care’ system: profit-driven drug marketing at the expense of human rights.

This film plunges into an industry corrupted by corporate greed and delivers a shocking warning from courageous experts who value public health over dollar.

Buy your own copies of the The Marketing of Madness DVD - one for yourself and the rest those you care for, to let them also know of the cold, hard facts about psychiatry!

EDITORIAL REVIEW

  • The Marketing of Madness- Are we all Insane?
    There is no money in "normal".

    From the makers of the award winning documentary "Making a Killing: The Untold Story of Psychotropic Drugging".

    This is the story of the high-income partnership between psychiatry and drug companies that has created an $80 billion psychotropic drug profit center.
    It exposes psychiatry's fraudulent diagnosis to further sell their drugs to 'normal' people. And it works. Psychiatrists and drug companies have created a profitable market making over $150,000 every single minute of the day. But by publicizing diseases creating the illusion of widespread mental illness, how safe are the drugs psychiatrists are prescribing to treat it?

    It's the story of big money - drugs that fuel a $330 billion psychiatric industry, without a single cure. The cost in human terms is even greater - these drugs now kill an estimated 42,000 people every year.And the death count keeps rising.

    Containing more than 175 interviews with lawyers, mental health experts, the families of victims and the survivors themselves, this riveting documentary rips the mask off psychiatric drugging and exposes a brutal money-making machine.

    This high impact presentation, two years in the making, exposes the destruction created by psychiatrists upon every sector of our society. Graphic footage from showing psychiatrists in action, eye-opening interviews with medical experts and moving stories from victims and their families, make this the most complete and devastating documentary of psychiatric abuse ever produced.

    Every person has the right to know the cold, hard facts about psychiatry, its practitioners and the threat they pose to our children.

Hello Ed,

Thank you for sharing your story with us.

Ed from Cape Town. commented on 25-Oct-2012 07:49 PM5 out of 5 stars
I haven't viewed this particular video, but have seen two others which were eye openers.

I went through a total meltdown - it was as if I had hit the wall and was sliding down to the floor and hadn't a clue what it was all about. I thought I was dieing. My logic was completely out of sync.

In hind sight I had been working incredibly hard - long hours anywhere from 9 to 12 hours per day, no stopping for lunch, eating sandwiches whilst continueing to work, tea breaks - unheard of. Then you would throw in some Saturdays and occasional Sundays - this was the pattern for some 30 plus years of life. Then one day my body decided - enough! If you wont take care of yourself - I will.

One of the big things which I noticed was sleep deprivation. My mind would often just switch on when I had gone to bed, which resulted in no sleep for hours and then finally passing out just before you are due to get up and go to work.

For the next two years I was on Cylift. At the end of this period I went off the drug completely as I thought I was going to be fine. But you don't get over a lifetime of hard work as easily as that. Within 8 months I was hard at work, trying to slow down, but didn't really succeed. After about 18 months I woke up one morning and recognised symptoms I had experienced previously - I was going through another meltdown, but fortunately I didn't have the crash and burn.

Back on drugs - different ones this time, as the Cylift didn't work this time. But this new bunch of drugs was really screwing up my body and my temprement. I was horrible to live with.

Then I saw those two documentaries and had an epiphany.

There was a particular line that caught my attention - The drug industry sees two types of people a)those that are clients and b) the rest that are potential clients. They see the world as a source of income and nothing else. There is no humanitarianism - they produce drugs to solve "problems". Many of these problems don't really exist, but they are very good marketers and can create illness. They actually created an illness and a drug solution for this illness - it was called Shyness!

I also established that there are no such things as Side Effects - if you experience them, they are Effects and they are Bad for you.
I went cold turkey and tossed all the drugs. I decided I could rather deal with the physical/mental problems rather than all those "side effects" that were screwing up my body and mind.

I also know that Mental Illness is not based on any scientific tests - its just a bunch of guesswork - none of them can be proven!

Be careful about using drugs as a solution to problems. Maybe for a short term quickfix - but you usually need to change your lifestyle and look after your body a whole bunch better than what you have been doing.

Sometimes we need to re-asses our spiritual input as well.

unless your personally dealing with someone with mental illness, or have a mental illness... your thoughts of this video & who produced it should not be discussed. My husband has been diagnosed with "anxiety", he has been prescribed with this cocktail:
xanax, seroqual, paxil & cymbalta. daily dose of each... now let me explain how these meds "helped" him: he became apathetic, depressed, homicidal, suicidal, extreme memory loss, extreme agression, the list goes on... Now these tablets were handed out like
lollipops from a gp, not a psychiatrist. My partner had a horrible childhood which i believe is the cause of his issues, however this doctor felt no need to send him to a psychiatrist he instead prescribed him a deadly cocktail. The problems go deeper then
feeling anxious.. there is causes to a large majority of mental illness which needs to be dealt with at the root, not with the quick fix tablet. I agree that in some cases tablets are indeed needed to help a person go through thearpy and cope with what they
are/have dealt with, but only to be used as an aid during therapy. My partner became a monster, and when i went to his doctor to describe the above behaviour and characteristics that had become apparant after the commencement of this cocktail, his doctor reluctantly
said "ok, lets stop the cymbalata"... "see how we go". no change... actually became worse... violently bashed a stranger (road rage) and a friend. two people... he was ready to take to the grave! The agression was insane.. the tabs made him insane!! That could
have been me!!! And i would not have survived!! Now he is off the tabs... nothing... changed his life! Nutrients, vitamins are what HIS brain needs, not what was prescribed!! I finally have my caring loving partner back!! Also... look up www.ssristories.com.
Interesting to read such stories and new headlines, and still not make it criminal to even manufacture these types of drug!!

Watched Marketing of Madness and couldn't get over how biased it was! A lot of it I know to be twisting the truth. Sure Chlorpromazine was found to be dangerous, but it was a breakthrough for schizophrenics! It stopped the old idea that they needed to
be restrained and treated inhuman, it made scientists understand exactly what it was that affects those with schizophrenia and attempt to treat it. I don't agree with a lot in this documentary.

Honesty Before Dogma commented on 09-Nov-2011 11:31 PM5 out of 5 stars
the first thing that should be known about this product is that it is made by the "citizens commission on human rights," an organization that was developed and funded by the church of scientology. regardless of what you think or feel about the CoS (i happen
to think it's one of the most dangerous cults in the world today), it is vitally important to understand that this film is not a public service announcement or even a journalistically responsible documentary, but rather an extended propaganda film for the
kind of social change that the CoS would like to bring about (but doesn't necessarily want the publicity for). granted, i bought this dvd knowing that it was a propaganda film, but i happen to like oddball stuff. the film is decidedly biased. while some criticisms
of the pharmaceutical industry hold merit (marketing does influence prescribing practices; the FDA is lax in its controls of testing procedures prior to public release of a medication; adverse side effects are frequently downplayed until the industry is unable
to deny them) these criticisms hold true for all branches of medicine. cases in point: the cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitors such as celebrex and vioxx, accutane (a vitamin a derivative used to treat acne), early birth control pills (which frequently caused
thrombi and other cardiovascular side effects in women), and a host of others. i'm not saying that psychotherapeutic drugs are safer than the average prescription drug, just that ALL medicines have side effects. the stuff you buy over the counter to treat
a runny nose? used to make meth (if pseudoephedrine) or for "robo-tripping" (if robitussin). there are glaring historical errors in the film. heroin and morphine were not initially created for psychoactive use, but rather for treatment of pain (they were even
ingredients in teething medicine for infants). cocaine was used and promoted by freud, as well as coca-cola, the pope, and several other institutions. people did formerly believe that mental illness was caused by an imbalance of the four humours, but so was
physical illness (a point not mentioned in the film). in fact, the overwhelming majority of the criticisms of the psychiatric industry in this film could just as easily be leveled against other branches of medicine (cardiology, gastrology, internal medicine,
etc.). the lesson here is that science is a process; it grows and develops based on the hypotheses and theories proposed, as well as the methods and technology available to investigate those hypotheses. it is always developing, always changing, always evolving
and teaching society as it provides the tools necessary for society to learn about the world. it does not have an end point. by contrast, as this film is funded by the CoS, would they prefer that we attribute mental illness to unobservable (and illogical)
phantasms such as thetans? even a casual examination of their book "dianetics" illustrates grotesquely illogical beliefs in such things as blindness being caused by an infant seeing an attractive nurse upon delivery, or that a child who is raped is not traumatized
(since the thetans that are the source of the trauma are already present; the rape only serves as something for the child to connect them with). as far as there being a lack of objective criteria for psychological diagnoses, i have a few responses there as
well. first, diagnosis is as much an art as it is a science. any doctor, nurse, or real medical practitioner can tell you this. the human body is far to complex for the kind of simple diagnostic algorithms that the CCHR and CoS seem to want to believe in.
and no single lab test is ever diagnostic of a specific disease (with the exception of bacterial, viral, or other infections). lab tests are indicative of a problem, but sufficient to make the diagnosis. that being said, the brain is the most complex organ
of the human body, with key structures and physiology that simply makes examination impossible without modern technology. there are strong correlations between regions of the brain and behavior (normal and abnormal). neurotransmitters are metabolized into
chemicals that can be measured in the urine. the reason these tests are rarely done in clinical practice is because of cost and necessity. if an individual presents to you with violent agitation, screaming and gesturing at things that are not present, and
expressing thoughts that people are out to get him, it doesn't take a genius to reach the conclusion that he is likely suffering from paranoid schizophrenia. in short, if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it is probably a duck (at least until you
learn some piece of data to suggest otherwise; the individual just described may simply be high on methamphetamine, and yes, a urine drug screen would reveal that fact). the film contradicts its own information at one point, blasting psychiatrists for overprescribing
psych meds (which i can kindof agree with) and then later stating that 66% of these medications are prescribed by general physicians, not psychiatrists. seems like if that statement is true, you can eliminate much of the problem of misdiagnosis and improper
prescribing by leaving the psychiatrists to prescribe the psych meds. i don't go to a dentist for heart medicine, so why should i assume the general practitioner is as knowledgeable as the psychiatrist when it comes to abnormal psychology? it trivializes the
severity of mental illness by playing into general misconceptions. yes, the DSM is not scientifically generated (at least not in the sense that other medical diagnoses are). but when examining human behavior it is impossible to come up with a set of criteria
for psychopathology that works equally well for all conditions, all cultures, all times. that's because behavior occurs within a deeper cultural context that other aspects of medicine simply don't. if i sit in the middle of the street and meditate for 5 hours,
i'd likely be seen as mentally ill. if i was in rural india when i did that, i might be seen as a guru. culture matters. as such, as culture evolves, so do the criteria for adaptive behavior within that culture. for example, as homosexual became more accepted
in our culture, it was seen less as mental illness and more as a "lifestyle." the work of people like dr. kinsey did much to make this happen. finally, the end of the film used interviews with people with a clear, vested interest in downplaying the reality
of mental illness. naturopathic medicine is far less scientific than psychology, clinical depression is not caused by a "lack of iron in the blood" (anemia), or any of the other rediculous quotes i could pull from the film. i find it incredibly laughable that
the same people who denounce mental health attribute all of its symptoms to organ systems that are far better understood (and far less complex) than the brain. the brain is the single most complex thing in existence that we are aware of, to suggest that its
complexity shouldn't be vulnerable to chemical change or that complex systems should be easy to study is a sign of ignorance, not knowledge.

As a Chiropractor I have the opportunity to meet and learn about many people. It has been my experience that the prescribing of these psychotropic medications should be NEARLY criminalized. The overwhelming number of people on these medications DO NOT
need to be on them...many other options are available. A very select group of people may actually need them...my thoughts would be less than 1% of those who are on them. Regarding the SCIENTOLOGY comments...Truth is truth no matter where it comes from. Although
I loathe scientology IF they share something of truth then it is valuable. GET OFF DRUGS....ALL OF THEM....MAKE LIFESTYLE CHOICES!

1. Don't believe everything you read or watch. 2. Years of research can't be dismissed 3. Look at the credibility of the source giving the information. 4. The opposer may have an agenda of their own. 5. Watch for lack of solutions, real solutions offered
by the opposer. 6. Each person has a responsibility to be proactive in their health, ask questions, take charge of your health. No one can make you take medications if you don't want. If those who can't make this decisions, it's up to the caregiver and if
necessary healthcare providers have a public responsibility to keep this the public and the affected person safe. 7. Personally, I've seen more helped by therapy /medications, than without any treatment.

This outstanding documentary is a wake up call. If you find yourself rejecting its message, you are still succumbing to the brainwashing pharmaceutical companies deliver through their advertising. You think it’s not possible? Look at what the tobacco industry
was able to do. Through extremely clever advertising and promotional activities with Hollywood studios, cigarette manufacturers convinced the world during the early to mid 20th century that their product would make a person sexy, cool, successful, and powerful.
They did this with a highly addictive product that has the unquestionable ability to KILL or maim its user. Pharmaceutical and tobacco corporations are the true cults. Those who find fault with this documentary are likely either dependant psychiatric drugs,
working directly or indirectly for a pharmaceutical company, or active in the field of psychology or psychiatry as a practitioner or as a patient. There are exceptions, of course. Like Karen a psychologist who posted a courageous review above. I am not an
advocate of the Church of Scientology. I am neither for nor against them. I wish some highly respected individual or organization had the courage to produce and distribute a documentary like this one. But since no one else has, as far as I know, the CCHR documentary,
“The Marketing of Madness,” serves the purpose for now very well.

It's perfectly understandable, the logic behind the ill side effects of drugs prescribed for mental disorders. But, as a person taking drugs for mental illness it is a solid fact that if I hadn't had something to stop what was happening in my head, I would have committed suicide. It's hard for someone not experiencing mental issues to understand the severity and criplingness of it. I've tried natural methods, vitamins and relaxation for my GAD and OCD, but, with a panic disorder, you begin to panic if you have any doubt if your treatment will work. The vitamins didn't do much and I couldn't make myself be patient for them to work. When everything is spinning out of control you just want to be normal again, and in that state you will try ANYTHING to do that no matter what the consequence. So I've been on Paxil and Xanax since I was sixteen, an extreme exception in prescribing tranquilizers but I had to hospitalized because I had attempted suicide and my anxiety was making me dysfunctional. Then I was diagnosed with bipolar and I started to panic because I thought I was getting sicker. But after four months of the anti depressant I started reverting to my old mindset, no more racing thoughts that made me panic because I didn't know if they would stop or get worse or make me insane. No more OCD either. The Paxil had some nasty side effects in the beginning, and the Xanax is very addictive, I had to go to rehab, but honestly all I wanted was my sanity and I simply didn't care. I wish I could have tried something more natural because Paxil has awful withdrawal symptoms and I've been on it for five years. It's sort of like I'm stuck taking it, but what ever keeps be from the brink of insanity is tolerable enough. To have every waking second of my existence feel like I was on top of a roller coaster, stuck in an elevator, buried alive, that panic, was too much to live without some kind of relief. I thought hell itself couldn’t be much worse. I know the bad side of the drugs I'm on, I've lived them, but the good side keeps me alive and that's enough.

n 2007 I was diagnosed with Schizo-phreniform Psychosis, I couldnt tell the difference between dreams and reality and was hospitalised for 2 weeks.

I have been on over many different meds since, most I could not tolerate the side effects.

in the end I was on dose '200mg' of amisulpride for over 4 years.. this was meant to prevent a relapse of illness.

I found overall I still dealt with a certain amount of paranoia, depression, lack of energy and mood instability along with the occasional delusional though process or hallucination despite my medication.
I could not go on a higher dose as the side effects would make me almost unable to work.

So after Reading Dr Abram Hoffer's Book titled 'Healing Schizophrenia' I decided to begin to try vitamin B3 treatment.

I experimented with nicotinic acid at first, trying a dose of up to 3 grams, split up (4 250mg tablets 3 times a day)

with nictonic acid there is a harmless 'flush' reaction you should know about, but the most interesting thing about the B3 was it actually worked wonders for my breakthrough psychotic symptoms.

within a week I found myself feeling no paranoia, no strange delusional thoughts, I had more energy, actually I may have been a little hypermanic (this may be due to my illness sitting somewhere in between Bi-Polar and Schizophrenia... something referred to as schizo-affective disorder.) So sure... maybe it doesn't stabilise my moods and prevent my slightly manic behaviour (something I'm still working on) But for the negative symptoms like paranoia and depression I had almost instant results.

After a few more months trying a few other things, including a mood stabiliser (lamictal) than landed me in hospital and off work way too many days due to it making me violently ill for 1.5 months... I have had enough of the psychiatric drugs.

I decided soon after watching the food matters dvd and realising my diet is more likely the key to my overall and mental health... to stop the amisulrpide alltogether and find a GP who supports me in taking the nutrition based approach to my mental health issues.

So I have now got a holistic GP, I have sourced something called Naicinol Forte (slow release niacin) which I am taking 4 Grams a day with no flush reaction.. And so far, I am feeling pretty sane and no longer feel 'dosed' like I have all these years on the amisulpride. now the focus is on learning more about food and cooking and other healthy routines.

I'm happy to reply with more info or answer any specific questions you have, for now I'll leave you with a link to my webcomic which explores this whole situation since 2007: http://mymysterydisease.com/

What about Rett's Syndrome, that is in the DSM IV and that is caused by genetic mutations (I will admit they are planning on removing it now its cause has been identified). I am sure there are more like this (and a very large amount some genetic proof - like ADHD (ADHD CNVs)). Anyway disorders are generally removed from the DSM IV when they are found to have genetic (or other) causes.

Why do people have such a big problem with disorders that effect behaviour, surely they see how improbable it is that something as complicated as the human brain would be one of the few parts of the human body that couldn't be deseased/ born mutated. Don't they understand how distressing it is to have ADHD?

I have seen many such people developing much more disorders in themselves.Being a patient and taking breast cancer treatment i understand this better. The side effects are not only limited to more aggression, addiction but they create allergy problems in the people. The allergy might be on skins or related to any particular food item or anything which earlier would not have been experienced in whole life. Instead of getting addicted to such medicines, practicing meditation, yoga and spirituality will be a better and inexpensive option

I have heard about the Gerson miracle from one of my friends. Her daughter was suffering from ldf-Breast Cancer and some one told her about Gerson therapy. The last time when we mate she told me that she was going to follow it for her daughter. I was really surprised to read that the entire treatment is based on nutrition. Now a days we see different types of chemicals and fertilizers are used for the farming which reduce the nutritional value of food in the farm itself. I will like to know about it and I am surely going to order the DVD today.

This whole so-called "documentary" was blatant propaganda for Scientology, who also believe that psychiatrists caused the Holocaust (I am German, and thus find that outrageous). I give it two stars because I DO believe that antidepressants etc. are indeed prescribed too often, but otherwise I really think people should be a lot more careful before they believe the not at all verified claims of this propaganda bull***.

Hilarious.

Just ONE of you observed that this is a L.Ron Hubbard production. Only just slightly coloured by his personal psychiatric problems, his drug use and his hatred of a profession that turned him down when he needed help.

This is an excellent documentary although it is made from a Church of Scientology support group. It does make me question the material...

Ten years ago, when I was living in the States, I was shocked to see on TV almost as many 'heavy duty' drugs commercials as there were for McDonald's. I remember very well that Zoloft commercial with the sad round thingy (featured in the documentary, btw) that walks shoulders down until...it gets its chemical imbalance fixed.
The horrible thing was I believed that commercial - well, it was shown on TV, so I assumed some clever people had thought about protecting the audience.

I believe certain changes must be made in the regulation of TV commercials and advertising of drugs in general - because people are simply zombied by TV advertising.

You Americans did such a fantastic job banning tobacco commercials and changing people's minds about smoking! I hope with this documentary things can change for the better about mental health, too.

It is truly heartbreaking when a person has a physical problem that they just can't resolve. I have done a lot of study on the situation and would be happy to offer it. Please email me and I'll send it to you. I also believe the dvd "Marketing of Madness" is a real eye-opener. Food Matters has done an excellent job of sharing what they have learned. God Bless you all.

In response to please help, thank you. I suffered from stress overload which caused insomnia which then turned to depression. I then developed physical problems such a s weight loss (7kgs in 2 weeks and I was already a low weight),dry mouth, flu to name but a few. I was already following a healthy life style and taking supplements but due to the enormous amount of stress, wasn't doing enough. Anyway, I ended up on lots of drugs, liquid food and eventually came right after 4 weeks. I didn't want drugs but couldn't function so took them knowing I would get off them which I did as soon as I could. Most people with depression are scared to loose the drugs and are frightened of going back to that dark place and it is hideous but I truly believe with the right food, some supplements, exercise & detoxing and support from family, it can be achieved.I couldn't eliminate all the stress but have done the best I can for now and am drug free and feeling so much better. I would recommend getting help with the insomnia first, no-one functions properly with out sleep as I found out. You can't just stop the drugs and hope you'll be ok, it takes so much more than that as websites such as these are telling us. Hope this helps you and your family as I know how painful it must be for you to watch your loved ones suffer.

I sat down in amazement as I watched this documentary - sadness abound because my mother started with Valium in the 60's - my sister is now so screwed up from taking so many of these drugs - mental hospitals, jail, and every place wanted her medicated - she so many times refused only to be put in front of a board of psychiatrist to try and force her. I pray she stops these drugs, eats right, exercises and gets physically healthy so she can fight the fiend. I passed a copy to my friend this morning who is on one of the many cocktails for anxiety, he can't sleep has leg cramps, backaches etc...in hopes he stops taking them too.

to karen (psychologist), i hope you are reading this, if not, any psychologist or people out there who are able to help.

i come from a small knit family and how unfortunate that 3 of my family members suffered from depression. the sickness was derived from insomia and later diverted into bipolar and depression. they have been on medication - they had to else things will repeat itself - medication was tried stopped before, it was OK but few months later, history will repeat itself.

i realy hope that anyone out there who has such similar situation, anyone whose family member had depression before share with me how the sickness is being cured without taking these medication. it's scary as we do afterall know of its side effects. if there is one thing that we ever regret, it is not stopping them from visiting the psychiatric at the first place. but what can we say when you do not understand the pain of having insomia?

it's heart breaking to see this happening to your own family and not able to do anything.

how we wish this was just a bad dream.

karen (psychologist) commented on 13-May-2010 07:37 AM5 out of 5 stars
i am a psychologist working in a hospital. the most disturbing element is that we KNOW that in many cases these drugs are not usefully at all, cause severe side effects and often get in the way of effective treatment with psycho education. For a small percentage of people drugs are a godsend in managing the maze of their minds and they would not be able to function otherwise, however this is a small percentage of people. Unfortunately drugs are often the FIRST line treatment instead of good old fashioned therapy for the majority. the consumer holds some responsibility here as we see people generally wanting a "quick" fix to life's problems and often a reluctance to address the underlying problems and issues. I constantly hear "I will be fine when the med's kick in" despite the obvious fact that they are depressed/anxious because of "life issues" rather than an unbalance in their brain. by the way seratonin (the feel good brain chemical) levels decrease in our brain when we
1) eat poor nutritional food 2) stay out of the sun
3) dont exercise 4) behave badly or live a powerless life. these are all things that YOU can address with the help of a good psychologist/therapist.
The drug companies are similar to fast food companies in that they are all about profit under their rhetoric of caring for you. great to see that more education about the dangers of drugs are being produced. well done!

I believe what it told in this movie. I have seen it go in spurts, changing with the drugs, that are popular at the time. Playing with the mind, chemically altering it's ability, is playing "Russian roulette" with the whole body's controls...it's computer system. Short circuit it or rewire the brain with mind altering meds and the results are totally unpredictable. I do NOT want to take that chance with MY brain/computer control!

Hello Ed,

Thank you for sharing your story with us.

Ann @ Food Matters
Ed from Cape Town. commented on 25-Oct-2012 07:49 PM5 out of 5 stars
I haven't viewed this particular video, but have seen two others which were eye openers.

I went through a total meltdown - it was as if I had hit the wall and was sliding down to the floor and hadn't a clue what it was all about. I thought I was dieing. My logic was completely out of sync.

In hind sight I had been working incredibly hard - long hours anywhere from 9 to 12 hours per day, no stopping for lunch, eating sandwiches whilst continueing to work, tea breaks - unheard of. Then you would throw in some Saturdays and occasional Sundays - this was the pattern for some 30 plus years of life. Then one day my body decided - enough! If you wont take care of yourself - I will.

One of the big things which I noticed was sleep deprivation. My mind would often just switch on when I had gone to bed, which resulted in no sleep for hours and then finally passing out just before you are due to get up and go to work.

For the next two years I was on Cylift. At the end of this period I went off the drug completely as I thought I was going to be fine. But you don't get over a lifetime of hard work as easily as that. Within 8 months I was hard at work, trying to slow down, but didn't really succeed. After about 18 months I woke up one morning and recognised symptoms I had experienced previously - I was going through another meltdown, but fortunately I didn't have the crash and burn.

Back on drugs - different ones this time, as the Cylift didn't work this time. But this new bunch of drugs was really screwing up my body and my temprement. I was horrible to live with.

Then I saw those two documentaries and had an epiphany.

There was a particular line that caught my attention - The drug industry sees two types of people a)those that are clients and b) the rest that are potential clients. They see the world as a source of income and nothing else. There is no humanitarianism - they produce drugs to solve "problems". Many of these problems don't really exist, but they are very good marketers and can create illness. They actually created an illness and a drug solution for this illness - it was called Shyness!

I also established that there are no such things as Side Effects - if you experience them, they are Effects and they are Bad for you.
I went cold turkey and tossed all the drugs. I decided I could rather deal with the physical/mental problems rather than all those "side effects" that were screwing up my body and mind.

I also know that Mental Illness is not based on any scientific tests - its just a bunch of guesswork - none of them can be proven!

Be careful about using drugs as a solution to problems. Maybe for a short term quickfix - but you usually need to change your lifestyle and look after your body a whole bunch better than what you have been doing.

Sometimes we need to re-asses our spiritual input as well.

unless your personally dealing with someone with mental illness, or have a mental illness... your thoughts of this video & who produced it should not be discussed. My husband has been diagnosed with "anxiety", he has been prescribed with this cocktail:
xanax, seroqual, paxil & cymbalta. daily dose of each... now let me explain how these meds "helped" him: he became apathetic, depressed, homicidal, suicidal, extreme memory loss, extreme agression, the list goes on... Now these tablets were handed out like
lollipops from a gp, not a psychiatrist. My partner had a horrible childhood which i believe is the cause of his issues, however this doctor felt no need to send him to a psychiatrist he instead prescribed him a deadly cocktail. The problems go deeper then
feeling anxious.. there is causes to a large majority of mental illness which needs to be dealt with at the root, not with the quick fix tablet. I agree that in some cases tablets are indeed needed to help a person go through thearpy and cope with what they
are/have dealt with, but only to be used as an aid during therapy. My partner became a monster, and when i went to his doctor to describe the above behaviour and characteristics that had become apparant after the commencement of this cocktail, his doctor reluctantly
said "ok, lets stop the cymbalata"... "see how we go". no change... actually became worse... violently bashed a stranger (road rage) and a friend. two people... he was ready to take to the grave! The agression was insane.. the tabs made him insane!! That could
have been me!!! And i would not have survived!! Now he is off the tabs... nothing... changed his life! Nutrients, vitamins are what HIS brain needs, not what was prescribed!! I finally have my caring loving partner back!! Also... look up www.ssristories.com.
Interesting to read such stories and new headlines, and still not make it criminal to even manufacture these types of drug!!

Watched Marketing of Madness and couldn't get over how biased it was! A lot of it I know to be twisting the truth. Sure Chlorpromazine was found to be dangerous, but it was a breakthrough for schizophrenics! It stopped the old idea that they needed to
be restrained and treated inhuman, it made scientists understand exactly what it was that affects those with schizophrenia and attempt to treat it. I don't agree with a lot in this documentary.

the first thing that should be known about this product is that it is made by the "citizens commission on human rights," an organization that was developed and funded by the church of scientology. regardless of what you think or feel about the CoS (i happen
to think it's one of the most dangerous cults in the world today), it is vitally important to understand that this film is not a public service announcement or even a journalistically responsible documentary, but rather an extended propaganda film for the
kind of social change that the CoS would like to bring about (but doesn't necessarily want the publicity for). granted, i bought this dvd knowing that it was a propaganda film, but i happen to like oddball stuff. the film is decidedly biased. while some criticisms
of the pharmaceutical industry hold merit (marketing does influence prescribing practices; the FDA is lax in its controls of testing procedures prior to public release of a medication; adverse side effects are frequently downplayed until the industry is unable
to deny them) these criticisms hold true for all branches of medicine. cases in point: the cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitors such as celebrex and vioxx, accutane (a vitamin a derivative used to treat acne), early birth control pills (which frequently caused
thrombi and other cardiovascular side effects in women), and a host of others. i'm not saying that psychotherapeutic drugs are safer than the average prescription drug, just that ALL medicines have side effects. the stuff you buy over the counter to treat
a runny nose? used to make meth (if pseudoephedrine) or for "robo-tripping" (if robitussin). there are glaring historical errors in the film. heroin and morphine were not initially created for psychoactive use, but rather for treatment of pain (they were even
ingredients in teething medicine for infants). cocaine was used and promoted by freud, as well as coca-cola, the pope, and several other institutions. people did formerly believe that mental illness was caused by an imbalance of the four humours, but so was
physical illness (a point not mentioned in the film). in fact, the overwhelming majority of the criticisms of the psychiatric industry in this film could just as easily be leveled against other branches of medicine (cardiology, gastrology, internal medicine,
etc.). the lesson here is that science is a process; it grows and develops based on the hypotheses and theories proposed, as well as the methods and technology available to investigate those hypotheses. it is always developing, always changing, always evolving
and teaching society as it provides the tools necessary for society to learn about the world. it does not have an end point. by contrast, as this film is funded by the CoS, would they prefer that we attribute mental illness to unobservable (and illogical)
phantasms such as thetans? even a casual examination of their book "dianetics" illustrates grotesquely illogical beliefs in such things as blindness being caused by an infant seeing an attractive nurse upon delivery, or that a child who is raped is not traumatized
(since the thetans that are the source of the trauma are already present; the rape only serves as something for the child to connect them with). as far as there being a lack of objective criteria for psychological diagnoses, i have a few responses there as
well. first, diagnosis is as much an art as it is a science. any doctor, nurse, or real medical practitioner can tell you this. the human body is far to complex for the kind of simple diagnostic algorithms that the CCHR and CoS seem to want to believe in.
and no single lab test is ever diagnostic of a specific disease (with the exception of bacterial, viral, or other infections). lab tests are indicative of a problem, but sufficient to make the diagnosis. that being said, the brain is the most complex organ
of the human body, with key structures and physiology that simply makes examination impossible without modern technology. there are strong correlations between regions of the brain and behavior (normal and abnormal). neurotransmitters are metabolized into
chemicals that can be measured in the urine. the reason these tests are rarely done in clinical practice is because of cost and necessity. if an individual presents to you with violent agitation, screaming and gesturing at things that are not present, and
expressing thoughts that people are out to get him, it doesn't take a genius to reach the conclusion that he is likely suffering from paranoid schizophrenia. in short, if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it is probably a duck (at least until you
learn some piece of data to suggest otherwise; the individual just described may simply be high on methamphetamine, and yes, a urine drug screen would reveal that fact). the film contradicts its own information at one point, blasting psychiatrists for overprescribing
psych meds (which i can kindof agree with) and then later stating that 66% of these medications are prescribed by general physicians, not psychiatrists. seems like if that statement is true, you can eliminate much of the problem of misdiagnosis and improper
prescribing by leaving the psychiatrists to prescribe the psych meds. i don't go to a dentist for heart medicine, so why should i assume the general practitioner is as knowledgeable as the psychiatrist when it comes to abnormal psychology? it trivializes the
severity of mental illness by playing into general misconceptions. yes, the DSM is not scientifically generated (at least not in the sense that other medical diagnoses are). but when examining human behavior it is impossible to come up with a set of criteria
for psychopathology that works equally well for all conditions, all cultures, all times. that's because behavior occurs within a deeper cultural context that other aspects of medicine simply don't. if i sit in the middle of the street and meditate for 5 hours,
i'd likely be seen as mentally ill. if i was in rural india when i did that, i might be seen as a guru. culture matters. as such, as culture evolves, so do the criteria for adaptive behavior within that culture. for example, as homosexual became more accepted
in our culture, it was seen less as mental illness and more as a "lifestyle." the work of people like dr. kinsey did much to make this happen. finally, the end of the film used interviews with people with a clear, vested interest in downplaying the reality
of mental illness. naturopathic medicine is far less scientific than psychology, clinical depression is not caused by a "lack of iron in the blood" (anemia), or any of the other rediculous quotes i could pull from the film. i find it incredibly laughable that
the same people who denounce mental health attribute all of its symptoms to organ systems that are far better understood (and far less complex) than the brain. the brain is the single most complex thing in existence that we are aware of, to suggest that its
complexity shouldn't be vulnerable to chemical change or that complex systems should be easy to study is a sign of ignorance, not knowledge.

As a Chiropractor I have the opportunity to meet and learn about many people. It has been my experience that the prescribing of these psychotropic medications should be NEARLY criminalized. The overwhelming number of people on these medications DO NOT
need to be on them...many other options are available. A very select group of people may actually need them...my thoughts would be less than 1% of those who are on them. Regarding the SCIENTOLOGY comments...Truth is truth no matter where it comes from. Although
I loathe scientology IF they share something of truth then it is valuable. GET OFF DRUGS....ALL OF THEM....MAKE LIFESTYLE CHOICES!

1. Don't believe everything you read or watch. 2. Years of research can't be dismissed 3. Look at the credibility of the source giving the information. 4. The opposer may have an agenda of their own. 5. Watch for lack of solutions, real solutions offered
by the opposer. 6. Each person has a responsibility to be proactive in their health, ask questions, take charge of your health. No one can make you take medications if you don't want. If those who can't make this decisions, it's up to the caregiver and if
necessary healthcare providers have a public responsibility to keep this the public and the affected person safe. 7. Personally, I've seen more helped by therapy /medications, than without any treatment.

This outstanding documentary is a wake up call. If you find yourself rejecting its message, you are still succumbing to the brainwashing pharmaceutical companies deliver through their advertising. You think it’s not possible? Look at what the tobacco industry
was able to do. Through extremely clever advertising and promotional activities with Hollywood studios, cigarette manufacturers convinced the world during the early to mid 20th century that their product would make a person sexy, cool, successful, and powerful.
They did this with a highly addictive product that has the unquestionable ability to KILL or maim its user. Pharmaceutical and tobacco corporations are the true cults. Those who find fault with this documentary are likely either dependant psychiatric drugs,
working directly or indirectly for a pharmaceutical company, or active in the field of psychology or psychiatry as a practitioner or as a patient. There are exceptions, of course. Like Karen a psychologist who posted a courageous review above. I am not an
advocate of the Church of Scientology. I am neither for nor against them. I wish some highly respected individual or organization had the courage to produce and distribute a documentary like this one. But since no one else has, as far as I know, the CCHR documentary,
“The Marketing of Madness,” serves the purpose for now very well.

I am exceedingly grateful for the production of : ‘The Marketing of Madness’, It is a plausible supposition that it will save a multitude of lives [ In the course of time ]; As in my case, It equates to not only the destruction of my family, and my near
death, but the ‘Obstruction of Justice’, and the obstruction of ecological initiatives. Re: http://www. humanrights-denied.co.nz

It's perfectly understandable, the logic behind the ill side effects of drugs prescribed for mental disorders. But, as a person taking drugs for mental illness it is a solid fact that if I hadn't had something to stop what was happening in my head, I would have committed suicide. It's hard for someone not experiencing mental issues to understand the severity and criplingness of it. I've tried natural methods, vitamins and relaxation for my GAD and OCD, but, with a panic disorder, you begin to panic if you have any doubt if your treatment will work. The vitamins didn't do much and I couldn't make myself be patient for them to work. When everything is spinning out of control you just want to be normal again, and in that state you will try ANYTHING to do that no matter what the consequence. So I've been on Paxil and Xanax since I was sixteen, an extreme exception in prescribing tranquilizers but I had to hospitalized because I had attempted suicide and my anxiety was making me dysfunctional. Then I was diagnosed with bipolar and I started to panic because I thought I was getting sicker. But after four months of the anti depressant I started reverting to my old mindset, no more racing thoughts that made me panic because I didn't know if they would stop or get worse or make me insane. No more OCD either. The Paxil had some nasty side effects in the beginning, and the Xanax is very addictive, I had to go to rehab, but honestly all I wanted was my sanity and I simply didn't care. I wish I could have tried something more natural because Paxil has awful withdrawal symptoms and I've been on it for five years. It's sort of like I'm stuck taking it, but what ever keeps be from the brink of insanity is tolerable enough. To have every waking second of my existence feel like I was on top of a roller coaster, stuck in an elevator, buried alive, that panic, was too much to live without some kind of relief. I thought hell itself couldn’t be much worse. I know the bad side of the drugs I'm on, I've lived them, but the good side keeps me alive and that's enough.

n 2007 I was diagnosed with Schizo-phreniform Psychosis, I couldnt tell the difference between dreams and reality and was hospitalised for 2 weeks.

I have been on over many different meds since, most I could not tolerate the side effects.

in the end I was on dose '200mg' of amisulpride for over 4 years.. this was meant to prevent a relapse of illness.

I found overall I still dealt with a certain amount of paranoia, depression, lack of energy and mood instability along with the occasional delusional though process or hallucination despite my medication.
I could not go on a higher dose as the side effects would make me almost unable to work.

So after Reading Dr Abram Hoffer's Book titled 'Healing Schizophrenia' I decided to begin to try vitamin B3 treatment.

I experimented with nicotinic acid at first, trying a dose of up to 3 grams, split up (4 250mg tablets 3 times a day)

with nictonic acid there is a harmless 'flush' reaction you should know about, but the most interesting thing about the B3 was it actually worked wonders for my breakthrough psychotic symptoms.

within a week I found myself feeling no paranoia, no strange delusional thoughts, I had more energy, actually I may have been a little hypermanic (this may be due to my illness sitting somewhere in between Bi-Polar and Schizophrenia... something referred to as schizo-affective disorder.) So sure... maybe it doesn't stabilise my moods and prevent my slightly manic behaviour (something I'm still working on) But for the negative symptoms like paranoia and depression I had almost instant results.

After a few more months trying a few other things, including a mood stabiliser (lamictal) than landed me in hospital and off work way too many days due to it making me violently ill for 1.5 months... I have had enough of the psychiatric drugs.

I decided soon after watching the food matters dvd and realising my diet is more likely the key to my overall and mental health... to stop the amisulrpide alltogether and find a GP who supports me in taking the nutrition based approach to my mental health issues.

So I have now got a holistic GP, I have sourced something called Naicinol Forte (slow release niacin) which I am taking 4 Grams a day with no flush reaction.. And so far, I am feeling pretty sane and no longer feel 'dosed' like I have all these years on the amisulpride. now the focus is on learning more about food and cooking and other healthy routines.

I'm happy to reply with more info or answer any specific questions you have, for now I'll leave you with a link to my webcomic which explores this whole situation since 2007: http://mymysterydisease.com/

What about Rett's Syndrome, that is in the DSM IV and that is caused by genetic mutations (I will admit they are planning on removing it now its cause has been identified). I am sure there are more like this (and a very large amount some genetic proof - like ADHD (ADHD CNVs)). Anyway disorders are generally removed from the DSM IV when they are found to have genetic (or other) causes.

Why do people have such a big problem with disorders that effect behaviour, surely they see how improbable it is that something as complicated as the human brain would be one of the few parts of the human body that couldn't be deseased/ born mutated. Don't they understand how distressing it is to have ADHD?

I have seen many such people developing much more disorders in themselves.Being a patient and taking breast cancer treatment i understand this better. The side effects are not only limited to more aggression, addiction but they create allergy problems in the people. The allergy might be on skins or related to any particular food item or anything which earlier would not have been experienced in whole life. Instead of getting addicted to such medicines, practicing meditation, yoga and spirituality will be a better and inexpensive option

This movie was created by the Church of Scientology. Promoting this movie on the Food Matter's site concerns me... I'm concerned it's taking away from the legitimacy of the "Food Matters"'s message.
ED: Hi there - thanks for expressing your concern. 'The Marketing of Madness' was produced by The Citizens Commission of Human Rights (http://www.cchr.org). The information presented is groundbreaking, impactful, controversial and deathly important to get to as many people as possible, this is why we choose to stock and support it. Hope this helps.

I have heard about the Gerson miracle from one of my friends. Her daughter was suffering from ldf-Breast Cancer and some one told her about Gerson therapy. The last time when we mate she told me that she was going to follow it for her daughter. I was really surprised to read that the entire treatment is based on nutrition. Now a days we see different types of chemicals and fertilizers are used for the farming which reduce the nutritional value of food in the farm itself. I will like to know about it and I am surely going to order the DVD today.

Seriously guys, wake up! This whole so-called "documentary" was blatant propaganda for Scientology, who also believe that psychiatrists caused the Holocaust (I am German, and thus find that outrageous). I give it two stars because I DO believe that antidepressants etc. are indeed prescribed too often, but otherwise I really think people should be a lot more careful before they believe the not at all verified claims of this propaganda bull***.

Hilarious.

Just ONE of you observed that this is a L.Ron Hubbard production. Only just slightly coloured by his personal psychiatric problems, his drug use and his hatred of a profession that turned him down when he needed help.

Ten years ago, when I was living in the States, I was shocked to see on TV almost as many 'heavy duty' drugs commercials as there were for McDonald's. I remember very well that Zoloft commercial with the sad round thingy (featured in the documentary, btw) that walks shoulders down until...it gets its chemical imbalance fixed.
The horrible thing was I believed that commercial - well, it was shown on TV, so I assumed some clever people had thought about protecting the audience.

I believe certain changes must be made in the regulation of TV commercials and advertising of drugs in general - because people are simply zombied by TV advertising.

You Americans did such a fantastic job banning tobacco commercials and changing people's minds about smoking! I hope with this documentary things can change for the better about mental health, too.

It is truly heartbreaking when a person has a physical problem that they just can't resolve. I have done a lot of study on the situation and would be happy to offer it. Please email me and I'll send it to you. I also believe the dvd "Marketing of Madness" is a real eye-opener. Food Matters has done an excellent job of sharing what they have learned. God Bless you all.

In response to please help, thank you. I suffered from stress overload which caused insomnia which then turned to depression. I then developed physical problems such a s weight loss (7kgs in 2 weeks and I was already a low weight),dry mouth, flu to name but a few. I was already following a healthy life style and taking supplements but due to the enormous amount of stress, wasn't doing enough. Anyway, I ended up on lots of drugs, liquid food and eventually came right after 4 weeks. I didn't want drugs but couldn't function so took them knowing I would get off them which I did as soon as I could. Most people with depression are scared to loose the drugs and are frightened of going back to that dark place and it is hideous but I truly believe with the right food, some supplements, exercise & detoxing and support from family, it can be achieved.I couldn't eliminate all the stress but have done the best I can for now and am drug free and feeling so much better. I would recommend getting help with the insomnia first, no-one functions properly with out sleep as I found out. You can't just stop the drugs and hope you'll be ok, it takes so much more than that as websites such as these are telling us. Hope this helps you and your family as I know how painful it must be for you to watch your loved ones suffer.

I sat down in amazement as I watched this documentary - sadness abound because my mother started with Valium in the 60's - my sister is now so screwed up from taking so many of these drugs - mental hospitals, jail, and every place wanted her medicated - she so many times refused only to be put in front of a board of psychiatrist to try and force her. I pray she stops these drugs, eats right, exercises and gets physically healthy so she can fight the fiend. I passed a copy to my friend this morning who is on one of the many cocktails for anxiety, he can't sleep has leg cramps, backaches etc...in hopes he stops taking them too.

to karen (psychologist), i hope you are reading this, if not, any psychologist or people out there who are able to help.

i come from a small knit family and how unfortunate that 3 of my family members suffered from depression. the sickness was derived from insomia and later diverted into bipolar and depression. they have been on medication - they had to else things will repeat itself - medication was tried stopped before, it was OK but few months later, history will repeat itself.

i realy hope that anyone out there who has such similar situation, anyone whose family member had depression before share with me how the sickness is being cured without taking these medication. it's scary as we do afterall know of its side effects. if there is one thing that we ever regret, it is not stopping them from visiting the psychiatric at the first place. but what can we say when you do not understand the pain of having insomia?

it's heart breaking to see this happening to your own family and not able to do anything.

how we wish this was just a bad dream.

I wonder what you are supposed to do with a schizophrenic who has absolutely zero concept that they have a problem. Will not realise they can take natural alternatives. What can you do then? When they have been involuntaraly detained to stay safe?
karen (psychologist) commented on 13-May-2010 07:37 AM5 out of 5 stars
i am a psychologist working in a hospital. the most disturbing element is that we KNOW that in many cases these drugs are not usefully at all, cause severe side effects and often get in the way of effective treatment with psycho education. For a small percentage of people drugs are a godsend in managing the maze of their minds and they would not be able to function otherwise, however this is a small percentage of people. Unfortunately drugs are often the FIRST line treatment instead of good old fashioned therapy for the majority. the consumer holds some responsibility here as we see people generally wanting a "quick" fix to life's problems and often a reluctance to address the underlying problems and issues. I constantly hear "I will be fine when the med's kick in" despite the obvious fact that they are depressed/anxious because of "life issues" rather than an unbalance in their brain. by the way seratonin (the feel good brain chemical) levels decrease in our brain when we
1) eat poor nutritional food 2) stay out of the sun
3) dont exercise 4) behave badly or live a powerless life. these are all things that YOU can address with the help of a good psychologist/therapist.
The drug companies are similar to fast food companies in that they are all about profit under their rhetoric of caring for you. great to see that more education about the dangers of drugs are being produced. well done!
Sandra commented on 12-May-2010 11:52 PM5 out of 5 stars
I believe what it told in this movie. I have seen it go in spurts, changing with the drugs, that are popular at the time. Playing with the mind, chemically altering it's ability, is playing "Russian roulette" with the whole body's controls...it's computer system. Short circuit it or rewire the brain with mind altering meds and the results are totally unpredictable. I do NOT want to take that chance with MY brain/computer control!
