Why are people everywhere losing it?

Why are people everywhere losing it?


While it’s a good idea to be informed, I’ve got to say that it’s getting harder and harder to see what’s going on in our world and not feel horrified or frightened.

For example, I just saw that three security guards at a Staten Island, NY hospital were slashed with a sharp object and nurses were attacked (with one being bitten) Sunday morning around 4am.

The attacks were apparently carried out by a 19-year-old man who was at the hospital for an evaluation.

I had chills run up my spine for a moment, thinking of my brother who is an ER doctor and how that could have been him that was attacked.

But this incident and countless others like it raises a glaring question: 

Why are people everywhere losing it? 

Well, there are a lot of possibilities and contributing factors, but there’s an elephant in the room that nobody seems to be talking about…

Pharmaceutical aggression.

Here’s the scoop:

Your daily dose of aggression

The reasons for someone becoming aggressive and violent can run the gamut, but a very common one lies in your bathroom medicine cabinet.

ALL of the following medications list aggression, aggressive behavior, agitation, irritability, actions that are out of control, loss of self-control, mental changes and/or mood changes as potential side effects:

  • Adderall
  • Advair 
  • Ativan 
  • Celexa 
  • Chantix 
  • Humira 
  • Klonopin 
  • Lexapro 
  • Nexium 
  • Paxil 
  • Phenobarbital 
  • Prednisone 
  • Prilosec 
  • Prozac 
  • Remicade 
  • Valium 
  • Xanax 
  • Zoloft 

These also happen to be among some of the most commonly prescribed medications in the world. 

If you’re surprised about this and are wondering why you haven’t heard about it on the news, the answer is simple. The mainstream media are “owned” by the pharmaceutical industry, receiving 70-90 percent of their advertising revenue from drug companies.

So, my friend, they won’t bite the hand that feeds them.

If you want the real truth, the “news” is the LAST thing you should pay attention to.

SSRI antidepressants—worthy of individual mention

SSRI antidepressants like Prozac are in a class all their own.

Prozac was released in 1987 and only two years prior to that, direct-to-consumer advertising of drugs had been legalized in the US. Then the FDA loosened their drug advertising rules even more in the mid-90s. 

Following this, ads for SSRIs skyrocketed…and so did prescriptions. The constant barrage of, “Ask your doctor if XYZ drug is right for you” worked like a charm.

In fact, in the 20-year period from 1988 to 2008, antidepressant use in the US shot up by an astounding 400 percent!

And while the drug companies tried their best to sweep the dangerous side effects under the rug, they became SO obvious that as of 2004, all antidepressants in the US must include a black box warning that they can cause suicidal thoughts and behaviors, and that:

“Anxiety, agitation, panic attacks, insomnia, irritability, hostility (aggressiveness), impulsivity, akathisia (psychomotor restlessness), hypomania, and mania have been reported in adult and pediatric patients being treated with antidepressants for major depressive disorder as well as for other indications, both psychiatric and nonpsychiatric.”

Testimony from former users

Over and above black box warnings, former users of Prozac have reported the following effects and experiences while taking the drug:

  • Extreme irritability 
  • Feeling possessed 
  • Panic and anxiety attacks 
  • Extreme difficulty with concentration 
  • No ability to love 
  • Impaired judgment 
  • Feeling out of control 
  • An overwhelming fear of being controlled by others 
  • Violent suicidal or homicidal thoughts 
  • No feelings of guilt or sense of conscience 

So is it any surprise that we are seeing continuing and increasing acts of aggression and violence?

It doesn’t stop there—more Prozac side effects

Prozac is metabolized by your liver, so it’s no surprise that it’s associated with impaired liver function.

It can also affect your pancreas and impair its ability to regulate your blood sugar—which puts you at a greater risk for Type 2 diabetes.

Prozac can also affect your neurological functioning and cause you to develop a tic—an uncontrollable movement such as your tongue darting in and out of your mouth, lip smacking, lip puckering, fishlike kissing motions and pelvic thrusting—which can continue even after the drug is stopped!

In addition, it has been associated with decreased white blood cell counts, which is a strong indication that it affects your immune system too.

What you can do

The good news is there’s plenty you can do to help create a state of strong physical and mental health, safely and naturally, so that you are less likely to need medication to begin with! 

Here are some smart strategies to try:

Have a diet of nourishing REAL foods

Nutrient deficiencies are a cause or contributing factor behind most illnesses.

For example:

  • Kids diagnosed with ADHD have been shown to be deficient in magnesium, iron, zinc and vitamin B6. 
  • People with depression lack B-complex vitamins, vitamin C, zinc and magnesium.
  • Cancer has been linked to deficiencies in selenium, zinc, and vitamins A, D and E.

So stick to wholesome real foods like meats, poultry, fish, fresh vegetables and fruits, nuts, eggs and good fats (butter, coconut oil, olive oil and lard).

And stay away from processed garbage and fast food. The late, great Jack LaLanne said it best: “If man made it, don’t eat it.”

Support your immune system 

Your immune system not only protects you against infections and viruses, but also cancer and heart disease!

You can pamper your immune system by having a healthy diet, limiting refined carbs and sugars, and supplementing with a high-quality probiotic like Super Shield multi-strain probiotic formula.

Super Shield’s full-spectrum blend of 13 well-studied probiotic strains can help support a healthy gut microbiome. Since your gut houses 80 percent of your immune system, it’s absolutely vital to keep your flora balance strong and able to fight off dangerous microbes and disease.

Note that if you have a history of digestive or intestinal issues, have taken antibiotics recently or seem to catch every bug and flu around, your gut microbiome may be in serious imbalance. In that case, the additional strains and potency of Super Shield PLUS can help turn that around and restore a healthier flora balance.

Drink enough water

Your body is about 75 percent water, so it only follows that drinking enough water every day helps make a healthier you.

Aim to drink at least eight 8-oz glasses of filtered water a day.

Get enough Vitamin D

Vitamin D helps protect against cancer, heart disease and can even ease depression! Plus it helps counter inflammatory immune responses such as those seen in autoimmune conditions, asthma and allergies.

Unfortunately, Vitamin D also happens to be a common deficiency, especially in the northeast where sunlight is limited for much of the year. 

You can help make sure you have health-supporting levels of this superstar disease fighter with Optimum DK Formula.

Each capsule provides a therapeutic 5,000 IU dose of Vitamin D3, plus its partners Vitamins K1, K2 and the mineral boron.

Talk to your doctor about alternatives

If you are on any medications, especially the ones I mentioned above, it’s time to talk to your doctor about alternatives.

For example, enzyme formulas like Digestizol Max have been shown to help with indigestion and heartburn.

Fish oil formulas like VitalMega-3 can help lower cholesterol and blood pressure.

And turmeric found in our Optimal Turmeric Blend has been shown to be as effective as several pain medications for arthritis and back pain!

DO YOUR PART to make sure your body and mind function like they are supposed to!

To your health,
