WELL OVER 90% OF ITS STAFF
ARE CARING AND HUMANE
INDIVIDUALS, BUT THEY ARE
AND MUCH OF THE TRAINING
THEY DO RECEIVE PROVES
CLOSE TO USELESS.
The massive amounts of Taxpayers’ money lavished on Social Services should, if properly invested, be enough to guarantee superlative handling of the problems which regularly crop up in the social sector.
Unfortunately those problems are too often missed by Executives and Staffs who have never been properly trained to recognise and understand the significance of the vast range of human emotions and how they impinge on individual’s behaviour in relation to family and the wider community.
AND THE REASON FOR THIS IS REALLY RATHER SIMPLE.
Social Services are in the main governed by the same ancient and misguided research which forms the basis for Psychological and Psychiatric theories, the vast majority of which have been derived from a study of animals – Pavlov’s dogs, millions of rats, mice and numerous other assorted species.
Even though for centuries, practically every religion in the world has regarded Man as comprised of: “Body, Mind and Spirit”, or just simply as: “Body and Soul”, because ANIMALS CLEARLY DO NOT HAVE ANALYTICAL MINDS AND DO NOT MANIFEST THE SORT OF DECISION-MAKING AND FUTURE PLANNING ONE WOULD EXPECT FROM AN “ETERNAL” SOUL, practically every one of the multi-various and often opposing “psych” animal studies (which they regard as “life” studies) denies the existence of “Soul” and also of “Mind”.
Which denial is entirely to be expected, because, whilst both animals and Man possess flesh and blood bodies and the mental ability to IDENTIFY environmental phenomena, Man ALONE ALSO has the analytical abilities required to COMPARE and to DIFFERENTIATE between environmental beings, persona, objects and events, etc., PLUS having a Chief Executive Officer (or Soul) which determines the uses to which its body will be put and thus also the quality and duration of its body’s lifetime.
And in this last paragraph we have a very brief summary of why Mankind, although often physically inferior in size, strength, speed and attack & defence equipment, has to date proved himself the master of every other species on Earth, as well as master of an increasing proportion of his environment.
Taking mental, emotional and behavioural phenomena derived from animals which are demonstrably intellectually inferior to Man, and then using that same data to monitor and direct Man’s superior and fundamentally different behaviour, clearly continues the CREATING of social problems, rather than the solving of them.
300 years ago Alexander Pope rightly observed that: “THE PROPER STUDY OF MANKIND IS . . . . MAN”. Nevertheless, psychiatrist Wilhelm Wundt (born in Leipzig in 1832, followed by Pavlov 1849, Freud 1856, Adler 1870, Jung 1875, Ellis and others) led the rest of psychiatry and psychology into the idea that we could all learn from experiments on, and studies of, the animal kingdom BECAUSE they all claim that Man is nothing more than a sophisticated 'animal' !
And these now proven desperately false theories they then applied – not only to individual men, women and children, and their monitoring and control - but also to their social interactions and responsibilities.
As a result, alongside butt-of-the-joke psychologists and provenly dangerous psychiatrists we have huge numbers of hard working and caring social workers tragically trying to do their best for humans with the “Social Sciences” designed by and for a totally different and inferior group of beings.
Problems dealt with by Social Services all inevitably involve “people”. As a result Social Workers (just like Police and other Officials) must have a full understanding of both honest AND evasive human behaviour, if they are to recognise the fundamental and true nature of any individual problem, and thus come up with an effective solution.
There are nearly 60 identifiable human reactions to life and living, the majority of which you can NEVER learn from an animal, simply because animals just do not experience them.
These are the emotions which shape or hide the behaviour to be expected from an individual human in various sets of circumstances, and when a Social Worker is trained and practised in their recognition, that Worker is half way towards an effective solution, because he or she is operating from trained observation, knowledge, truth, facts, evidence, reality and actuality, rather than from theories, opinion, belief, hope and faith that Man IS, and is like, an animal.
But the psych theories on which Social Services mainly operate, in addition to regarding Man as fundamentally an animal, also regard the Brain as Man’s driving force in life. BUT IT ISN’T.
The Brain is nothing more nor less than a superb electronic switchboard which handles communications between you (as a Soul) and your body, in order to be able to create effects in your environment AND to transmit to you the information about your environment which is collected by your five physical senses / perceptions.
Because psychiatrists and most psychologists – contrary to the massively greater number of religious faiths and believers - hold to the idea that Souls and Minds do NOT exist, the images they detect during brain-scans are falsely attributed to decision-making, planning, imagination, memory and all those activities actually originated – NOT BY THE BRAIN – but by the Soul in charge. In other words, they are assigning CAUSE to what are in fact brain-scan detectable indications of Soul created EFFECTS as they take place in the Brain during their switchboard like transmissions between the Soul, the Body and the environment.
By missing and denying completely the Spiritual nature of Man and the existence of his Analytical Mind, and by mis-assigning the activities, qualities and goals of the Soul and the Analytical mind to the Brain, psychiatry, psychology, neurology and much of sociology have effectively diverted Man’s future progress down a path governed by psychiatrically promoted addiction and pharmaceutical profit motives
The fact that Brain is NOT the factor which distinguishes Man from animals is highlighted by the totally obvious fact that Man and animals BOTH HAVE BRAINS. “Yes” say the psychs, “but they are of different sizes”. i.e. they are claiming that the varying size of a piece of grey matter from one flesh and blood animal body to another, is what determines each animal’s intelligence.
And some will even tell you that the reason a baby or young child is not as bright as an adult is because its head (and thus its Brain) is smaller !
So how do they explain the proven fact that in the first five years of a child’s life, a youngster learns far far more than the average adult in that same period ? And does this mean that big adults are cleverer and more successful than small adults ?
Following a recent Social Services disaster in Derbyshire, when a baby was murdered by her own troubled mother, the main conclusion which seems to have been reached by the investigators is that, whilst it was well known that there was a problem, “there was a lack of professional curiosity”, and thus also a lack of effective decision-making and action.
But there has been no recognition or acknowledgement of the fact that this lack of interest or curiosity rests squarely on how much the APATHY which an unworkable, unsuccessful and failing set of professional theories AND TRAINING can dull workers’ perceptions, enquiring instincts and successful investigations.
And, because of INADEQUATE AND INEFFECTIVE TRAINING, that bored and monotonous level of enquiry extends beyond investigation and into the selecting of solutions for any problem which may have been rightly or wrongly decided upon.
In fact, because of the difficulties the average hard working, dedicated and caring Social Worker experiences in regularly producing fully effective outcomes, they themselves increasingly experience bouts of worry, uncertainty and apathy, and that apathy regularly manifests itself at all Staff levels including the Executive levels.
As consequence, whilst shortage of personnel or finance are usually publicly blamed, absence of full or appropriate training actually is very often detected.
Unfortunately however, because of the hold which Psychology and Psychiatry (as well as Pharmacology) has over the whole Social Services Sector, EVEN MORE costly IN-appropriate and IN-effective training is then entered into, along with a demand to government for more money.
The only proper study of the mind is to be found in the book: “DIANETICS® The Modern Science of Mental Health” by L. Ron Hubbard, which has sold infinitely more copies in practically every language spoken on Earth than any other mental health publication. As a result, Dianetics is by far the most widely used and effectively practised science of the mind, and one of Hubbard’s follow-up volumes entitled “SCIENCE OF SURVIVAL” laid the foundation for peaceful and effective social interaction.
Not surprisingly, Dianetics and Hubbard have both been viciously attacked since day one by German and American Psychiatry in a fruitless endeavour to perpetuate their pseudo-science and to maintain their entrenched “authoritative” "we've-been-here- longer" position with many government departments, including those in the United Kingdom.
Fortunately that situation is changing in many countries, not only because of Dianetics’ successes, but because of increasing psych failings in many sectors.

BECAUSE IT IS NOW CLEAR
THAT THE N.H.S. IS MAINLY
DEDICATED TO PRESERVING
THE FINANCIAL HEALTH
OF THE PHARMACEUTICAL
COMPANIES & PSYCHIATRY,
The Real Question Is:
DOES THE GOVERNMENT’S
OVERWHELMING DESIRE FOR
MASSIVE TAX INCOME BLIND
MINISTERS TO THE TRUTH, OR,
DO TOO MANY OFFICIALS AND
M.Ps OWN BIG-PHARMA SHARES ?
(OR IS IT PERHAPS BOTH ?)
The stark truths revealed in Dr Gabor Lenkei’s famous book on the psycho-pharmaceutically promoted “disease industry”, Gwen Olsen’s You-Tube exposures from years of working inside big-pharma companies, and numerous other reports from physicians and chemists across the globe, should all come as no surprise - when one examines the current bankrupt state of the U.K. National Health Service.
Amongst other things, the job of the Department of Health is to fund provision of: 1) medicines for patients, 2) hospital premises, 3) medical equipment, 4) beds and other furnishings, 5) ambulances, 6) surgeons, 7) doctors, 8) nurses and other staff and 9) their training, etc., and it is significant that for most of the last 69 years both medication spending and the number of patients being medicated have increased at a much faster rate than all those other N.H.S. costs.
Whilst this is partly due to the rising immigrant population, the increasing number of patients INVOLUNTARILY ADDICTED to pharmaceutical drugs daily supplied by the N.H.S., proves that by far the main increase is because MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF PATIENTS ARE JUST NOT GETTING CURED !
FURTHERMORE, THIS SITUATION ARISES QUITE DELIBERATELY !
YES . . . . DELIBERATELY !
To really appreciate the cold-blooded subtlety of the greed motivated psycho-pharmaceutical marketing strategies into which all of us have been covertly and increasingly trapped since the formation of the N.H.S, we must first understand the vital differences and values of the various health outcomes possible for patients.
The first is the actual natural built-in processes upon which ALL healing of flesh and blood bodies and human minds depend, without which no other facets of healing would ever occur, and which are fundamental to a “cure” or full cessation of any health problem.
The second is the medicines and procedures which, over the ages we have discovered can assist and promote those natural healing processes, and which are generally known as “treatment” or “counselling”.
Third is the “management” of patient’s “symptoms” based on “palliative” prescribing. i.e., NOT the handling of “causes”, but the temporary chemical shutting off of the effects of an injury or illness in order to provide so-called “relief” for the patient.
As part of our vital natural healing processes - aches, pains, numbness, tenderness, smarting, itching and weakness, etc., are also part of NATURE’S REMINDER TO THE OWNER OF THE BODY that he or she has an injured, sick or disordered situation which MUST be protected, safeguarded and only gently and gradiently restored to usage in order to maximise and speed a return to full health.
But “pseudo-sympathetic” drug company salesmen express “mock-concern” that patients should never ever have to confront EVEN healing or growing pains, and that we should “manage” our healing processes with “relieving” drugs instead of even suffering minor painful or disorientating healing effects designed by nature to fully protect us against over-activity, physical or mental overwhelm or too early naturally strenuous body usage - when not yet fully recovered.
In principle, this sounds very humane and considerate, until, with the experience of the last seven decades of National Health Service, we examine all the vastly damaging results brought about by such a "sympathetic" policy.
A “medicine” is any substance which, by one means or another, is introduced into the body with the intention of removing the individual from an unwanted condition, and the term “medicine” is generally held to apply to those substances which STIMULATE, ASSIST OR REINFORCE the Body’s Own Natural Defences and Self-Healing Abilities.
In contrast, the modern meaning of “drug” is any substance, generally understood to normally be of a toxic or poisonous nature, but which nevertheless, by one means or another, is introduced into the body with a view to removing the individual from an unwanted physical, mental, personal or behavioural condition, and the term “drug” is usually taken to mean those substances which work by ALTERING the boidy's metabolism to ENFORCE some other condition.
(N.B. Whilst it is recognised that practically any substance when taken in sufficient quantity can poison or otherwise adversely affect the body’s natural chemistry, the nature of drugs is such that only a very small or even a minute quantity can do so.)
Although “medicines” and “drugs” all look pretty much alike in their liquid, pill, tablet and capsule forms, it is the vast world of difference which exists between “ASSISTING” the body’s functions and “ENFORCING ALTERATIONS” to the body’s functions which leads to and creates the major problems today besetting the National Health Service and its INCREASINGLY “MANAGED” BUT UNCURED PATIENT POPULATION.
This is because ENFORCED ALTERATIONS TO HUMAN METABOLISM are the root cause of all substance ADDICTIONS.
Today, the increasing number of addicted but uncured patients are what are costing the N.H.S, the Exchequer and therefore the Taxpayer, TENS OF MILLIONS of £pounds every single day of every week, every month and every year, and have been increasingly doing so since 1948 !
Recognise that, you can never ever become addicted to a drug which you NEVER consume. i.e. You can ONLY become addicted to a drug which you actually take.
In addition to a Couple of Million addicted alcoholics, the U.K. has roughly One Million illicit drug addicts. But, the U.K. has Four Million N.H.S. patients daily addicted to 1, 2, 3 or 4 doses of pharmaceutical drugs, all supplied by the U.K. Government at Taxpayer cost.
So, whilst alcoholic drinks producers and criminals account for just over 40% of our socially devastating, economically costly and morale destroying national condition, NEARLY 60% OF OUR ADDICTED POPULATION IS CREATED BY THE PRODUCERS AND PRESCRIBERS OF PHARMACEUTICAL DRUGS !
What a crying shame, and how could it have possibly happened ?
And the first questions to examine for an answer are: “WHAT IS ADDICTION”,
and “ OF WHAT USE IS SUBSTANCE ADDICTION TO ANYBODY ?”
SUBSTANCE ADDICTION is the overwhelming necessity regularly or continuously experienced by an individual for the consumption of some substance which is being irresistibly demanded by the metabolism of that individual because his or her metabolism has, at an earlier point in time, been forcibly altered by consuming that same substance.
The alterations arise because of the toxic nature of the substance and the endeavours of the body’s chemistry to encompass that substance’s poisoning by providing a facility for it’s
safe consumption, which
facility must then be continuously exercised or, if not, abandoned in
the name of economical operation, such abandonment resulting in the
detrimental poisoning of the body during any period of withdrawal or
attempted cessation of usage.
Obviously, it is not the addict who benefits from addiction. Quite the reverse, as he or she loses practically all control of his or her life.
Careful study and examination of the situation reveals and confirms, time after time, that basically PRODUCERS AND DISTRIBUTORS of ALL types of addictive substances benefit from the enslavement generated by their production and sale, along with any TAX COLLECTING AUTHORITY under whose jurisdiction the producers and sellers operate, plus any individuals holding shares in any such commercial production, sales and distribution operations.
SO. What are the first groups of “Beneficiaries of Addiction” who deliberately CAUSE Addiction, and the second groups of “Beneficiaries of Addiction” who basically ALLOW & ENCOURAGE Addiction to continue because of the benefits they consider they obtain from such permissive encouragement ?
a) Drug Barons, their distribution chains and their Local Pushers.
b) Pharmaceutical Production Companies, their chains of chemists shops, their
dispensers, and the G.Ps they have conned into massive palliative prescribing,
c) Psychiatrists, their counselling practices and their fee incomes,
d) Alcoholic drink manufacturers, their chains of Public Houses and owned or
supplied Off-Licensed premises, and,
e) Any and all those individuals in decision making positions in the country, who
enjoy some familial or financial relationship with a), b), c) or d) above.
IF YOU THINK ADDICTION IS “AN ACCIDENT”, THEN THINK AGAIN !
Substance Addition is an activity deliberately undertaken by unscrupulous money motivated individuals, business companies or criminal gangs, for the sole purpose of guaranteeing high turnover and prices with a minimum of future effort and cost.
By telling the right lies to an individual seeking an answer to some problem, he or she can be rendered dependent with just a few doses of an addictive drug. A seven day, three times a day prescription will normally result in more than 50% of the prescribed patients becoming long term irresistibly addicted to the drug prescribed.
Thus the most accurate & correct description for a drug addict is: “VICTIM”.
A victim of uncaring and unsympathetic greed. A victim of misinformation and personal criminal manipulation for profit. A victim of inept, misinformed and manipulated government, and a victim of the apathy generated in government circles by a century of increasing addiction, drug related crime and drug related deaths, and the apparent failure to cope of Ministers, M.Ps and Officials being daily advised and misdirected by the very same groups of so-called “Drug Professionals” who are amongst the leading Beneficiaries of Addiction !
HOWEVER, 70% OF ADDICTS, WHETHER ILLICITLY ADDICTED OR LEGALLY INVOLUNTARY ADDICTED BY THE N.H.S., CAN BE CURED IN ANYTHING FROM 3 TO 9 MONTHS.
But NEVER on the basis of advice and guidance from psychiatrists or pharmaceutical drug production companies. This is because ADDICTION is the most valuable weapon in their marketing armoury, and for them, working to cure addiction would put them INTO the business of putting themselves OUT of most of their easy profitable – but cruel - business !
Addictive substances are A UNIQUE PRODUCT SALE, because unlike other regularly repeatable transactions, the product has only to be sold ONCE, and thereafter the demand for the next supply is IRRESISTIBLY AUTOMATED by the product itself!
Which is obviously why we have the Couple of Million addicted alcoholics, the One Million illicit drug addicts, and the FOUR Million N.H.S. patients daily addicted to 1, 2, 3 or 4 doses of pharmaceutical drugs.
And rather than curing drug and drink addiction – with programmes which are totally available to (but hidden from) Government - the psycho-pharm fraternity are busy converting illicit users of illegal drugs to prescription supplied legal pharmaceutical addicts profitably paid for by U.K. Taxpayers.
That the psycho-pharm fraternity continuously resist curing drug and drink addiction is further proof of that fraternity’s deliberate creation and preservation of addiction in as many profitable patients as possible.
Because addicting an individual is CONTRIBUTING TO THE INFLICTION OF ACTUAL BODILY HARM ON THE ADDICTED VICTIM, ESPECIALLY WHENEVER HE OR SHE ATTEMPTS TO WITHDRAW FROM USAGE, any individual pusher or prescriber of any addictive drugs is committing a criminal act, and should be appropriately handled by the Courts.

THE U.K’s MOST WORKABLE SYSTEM
FOR THE COMMISSIONING OF
RECOVERY FROM DRUG ADDICTION.
(SOLELY TO MAINTAIN DRUG PROFITS.)
The Government’s Payment by Results (PBR) schemes are now estimated by the National Audit Office to account for over £15 BILLION of public spending.
These are outcome based payment schemes where payment of all or part of the agreed charges DEPENDS ON THE PROVIDER ACTUALLY ACHIEVING RESULTS specified by the national or local government Department contracting for the Provider’s services.
When, in the last quarter of 2010, the then Government recognised that since 1948 the National Health Service had for more than 60 years been paying for rehabilitation of addicted drug addicts - whilst receiving an actual delivery by a majority of Providers of only 3% of cured (i.e. long term abstinent) users, the Rt Hon Oliver Letwin and his team introduced probably the world’s most viable and promising addiction handling policy ever.
At that time, provision of rehabilitation was based overwhelmingly on Opioid Substitution Therapy (methadone and Subutex prescribing) and 12 Steps Mutual Therapy Groups (both residential and in-the-community), plus, in over 45 countries including the U.K., some Self-Help Residential Addiction Recovery Training Centres.
And the first revelation of the new policy was that whilst
(a) 12 Steps had – over periods of years – an apparent 20 to 30% chance of producing lasting abstinence - often with continued weekly application,
(b) N.H.S. O.S.T. prescribing was delivering only 3% of late-life abstinence, whilst,
(c) in three months across at least 45 nations, Self-Help Residential Addiction Recovery Training was delivering 55 to 69+% of former addicts comfortably abstinent for 9 months or more, and that they had been doing so since 1966.
In other words, with CONTINUING ABSTINENCE for its goal, the 2010 introduction of Payment by Results quickly revealed that there were actually little or NO RESULTS from the “flagship” psycho-pharm O.S.T. prescribing at an annual cost of over £47,000 per addict, a BETTER RESULT from much less costly 12 Steps, and a comfortably RELAXED LASTING ABSTINENCE RESULT from Self-Help Residential Addiction Recovery Training - at a ONCE ONLY cost of just over half the ANNUAL O.S.T. cost.
Rationally, what these revelations should of course have achieved, was a massive move away from O.S.T. prescribing and an equally large move towards 12 Steps and the world’s main Providers of Self-Help Residential Addiction Recovery Training – known as NARCONON® - which was established in the Arizona State Prison System in 1966 and which has been expanding across the world ever since.
BUT IT DIDN’T.
Solely because the psycho-pharmaceutical fraternity didn’t want to lose its highly lucrative O.S.T. methadone and buprenorphine prescribing business which it had built up over the previous 62 years, and which was costing the Government between £8.46 and £10.8 BILLIONS per year across all government Departments, for the 40 year life of the average prescribed methadone addict.
(Figures obtained from the National Audit Bureau & Glasgow University)
Unfortunately the Government were persuaded by psychiatric Professor Sir John Strang’s psycho-pharm supporters that, because Payment by Results was “a relatively new idea”, it ought to be tried out in practice before being widely introduced.
Whilst PbR is of course merely a “payment system”, in the addiction recovery field it absolutely depends on first being able to deliver the LONG TERM ABSTINENCE RESULT required by the Government. So for his four year “pilot” of Payment by Results, Strang quietly selected rehabilitation centres for his “pilots” which he full well knew could seldom if ever actually deliver a lasting abstinence RESULT.
Which absence of results, after completion of his “pilots”, he pronounced as an abject failure of the Payment by Results system, rather than as a failure of the O.S.T. prescription “management” system he had exclusively favoured and piloted.
It should be noted that he carefully excluded from his “pilots“ the one then 44 year established addiction recovery programme capable of delivering enough addicts to relaxed abstinent results to make a Payment by Results system actually WORK for the nation’s benefit.
Of all the commentators observing and measuring the U.K. addiction scene, the National Audit Bureau’s estimate of the cost of O.S.T. prescribing is the lowest per annum, at over £47,000 per addict per annum – likely for the next 40 years.
But a competent Self-Help three months long Residential Addiction Recovery Training Programme, when delivered on a Payment by Results basis, is priced at a once only fee of £29,000, of which £20,000 remains UNPAID until, as and if, the various desired degrees of relaxed lasting abstinence are achieved and medically approved by physician examination at three, six and nine months from the start of the Programme.
51 years of history across charitably run addiction recovery centres in 45 countries adequately demonstrates that a trained addict who has comfortably abstained for six or nine month is seldom – IF EVER – going to again become an addict.
Obviously, because an addiction recovery training centre is a drug-free environment, any addict in study is going to gain three months of drug free living, or is going to fail, and in either event thus pay for no more than his or her accommodation, bed, board, laundry and toiletry costs, which have to be covered wherever they reside.
But the following three months as well as the next three months prove their relaxed abstinent condition and prove to the Commissioner that the Provider merits staged payments of fees based solely on the abstinence RESULTS achieved at each stage.
To offset the biased result created by Sir John Strang’s previous four year Payment by Results “pilots”, what is now required is a new set of “pilots” over a similar period based on a three months, 51 year tried and tested, Self-Help Residential Addiction Recovery Training Programme.
Insofar as the psycho-pharm fraternity have already spent the last half century trying to get rid of Self-Help Residential Addiction Recovery Training in every possible unfair and underhand way, it is clear that such a new set of pilots will be violently, overtly and covertly resisted in every manner, because the psycho-pharms just do not want our politicians to know the truth.
For turnover and profit reasons, the psycho-pharms do not wish to deliver cures for ILLEGAL addiction – mainly because they also CAN’T !
However, they CAN cure INVOLUNTARY addiction to prescribed medical drugs – but they seldom if ever do so, and they resist having anyone else do it, by neglecting to manufacture and provide the essential small-size drop-down dosages which comfortable withdrawal from medical drugs absolutely necessitates.
As a result, any government moves or proposals to avoid and / or cure either illegal or prescribed addiction will fail if psychiatric or pharmaceutical advice is sought on these subjects, because addiction in any of its forms is their favourite way of capturing and retaining new consumers of drugs and psychiatric services.

ALLERGIES, DRUG ADDICTION,
AND POOR MENTAL HEALTH.
IS THERE A CONNECTION ?
A recent T.V. programme on allergies proved excellent as far as it went. Unfortunately, whilst it painted a near perfect picture of what was known of that subject in 1955, it fell so far behind what is known today from 67 years of Dianetics® practice, that it renders the producer’s dedicated work nothing more than a description of what allergies, and particularly asthma, DO to sufferers and how best to handle and alleviate their symptoms.
This statement does not undervalue the work of that programme, but reveals that it did nothing to expose and handle the underlying cause of allergies.
Just ask yourself the question: “If bedbugs, cat hairs and dust mites are the real cause of asthma, because these are present in 99.9% of houses across the land – why have we not all got asthma ??”
Also - if we clean up the family home to a point which provides the relief so desperately sought, how do we handle their local school, or the hotel where they go on holiday ?
For many decades the medical profession has recognised and treated various allergic reactions to the touch, the taste, the smell and / or the ingestion of a wide range of substances.
Over the years, nuts, eggs, dairy produce, cats, dogs, animal fur, new mown grass, warm tar, tobacco-smoke, alcohol, sugar, shell-fish, fresh paint, chemicals, drugs and numerous other everyday substances have been identified as “triggering” asthma, hay-fever, bronchitis, eczema, dermatitis, re-occurring stomach problems and streaming eyes, as well as migraine headaches, coughing, sneezing, vomiting, diarrhoea, acne and other physical ailments.
Because of the growing incidence and recognition of allergies, it is increasingly suggested that we need to know more about their cause, so that we may know more about their cure.
SO LET’S START BY EXAMINING A TYPICAL PROGRESSION IN THE DIAGNOSIS OF ALLERGIES.
The first indication is generally when a person manifests an undesirable, unusual and unexplained physical – or even a mental - reaction.
As examples, the individual feels breathless, or breaks out in a rash, has bouts of sneezing, vomits, has a headache or other pain, feels dizzy or faint, exhibits irrational fear or anger, passes out, or even has more than one symptom occurring at the same time – all for no apparent reason.
If this later becomes recognised as occurring regularly and is suspected to be an allergic reaction to some substance in his or her environment, a search is then undertaken to discover the exact factor or re-stimulator in the surroundings which is triggering the particular symptom or reaction.
Observation, examination and testing is normally expected to eventually discover that a specific factor or factors in the sufferer’s environment is responsible. e.g. in the presence of dogs Bill has breathing problems or, (another example) the smell or taste of boiled milk makes Mary break out in a rash.
Steps are then taken to keep the subject patient away from dogs or boiled milk or whatever has proved to be the ‘trigger’. Alternatively, medical attempts are made using medicines or drugs to reduce the sensitivity of the subject, or to reduce the impact of the triggering factor on the subject.
Questions might be asked as to why Bill should be affected by dogs in this way when neither his brother nor his sister have the same problem. And similar questions might be asked as to why Mary should be so affected by boiled milk, when no one else in the family or amongst her friends is similarly distressed.
In fact, if the problem was ‘dogs’ or ‘milk’, then one might expect dogs and milk to have the same effect on everybody. But they don’t. So is the problem ‘Bill’ and ‘Mary’ ? Or is it as a result of something which has earlier happened to Bill involving dogs, and also as a result of something which has earlier happened to Mary involving hot milk ?
In the medical profession anything from ten to fifty percent or more of medical conditions are considered to be ‘psychosomatic diseases’, i.e. illnesses caused by or originating in the mind or psyche - rather than as the result of a direct or immediate effect upon the organism of current infection, contagion, germs, viruses, impacts, injury or other physical causes.
In fact, according to the authoritative, widely used and highly respected “Black’s Medical Dictionary”: “Psychosomatic diseases are illnesses resulting from the effects of excessive or repressed emotions upon bodily function or structure.
They affect vast numbers of patients who are not out of their minds and yet do not have any organic disease to account for their illness.”
And in this dictionary definition we have what to many is clearly a rather accurate description of an allergic reaction.
But the trouble is that as soon as the term “psychosomatic” applies to a particular disease sector, the average physician regrettably tends to leave investigation and treatment of it to psychiatry.
Which unfortunately means that the whole field of psychosomatic disease and investigation of many allergies is left to THE MOST CONFUSED AND INEFFECTIVE BRANCH OF MEDICINE.
Clear signs of this confusion appear in the introduction to psychiatrist Angelina Gibbs’ book "Understanding Mental Health" where she asks: "What is mental illness?".
Which she goes on to answer with: "This is the first of many questions on mental health which cannot be answered conclusively." "Theories abound" she writes, and in the chapter "What causes mental illness?" she tells us that "Usually only a partial answer can be given because not enough is yet known about the causes of mental illness . . . ." i.e. about illnesses of the mind.
If one doubts the confusion which exists in psychiatry, one has only to consider the definition of “mind” as given in the authoritative "Dictionary of the Mind, Brain & Behaviour" by the well known psychology Doctor Chris Evans, and the definition of psychiatry itself which concludes as follows:
“The trouble with psychiatry today is that it is still without a working theory, not just of the mind but also the disturbed mind. Even a definition of mental illness is not easy to come by, so perhaps it is not surprising that to this date psychiatric methods have inevitably been of a hit or miss variety." (ISBN 0 09 918070 07)
And this “hit or miss variety” of medicine is that branch to which the other branches of medicine have delegated the whole field of non-organic, mental and psychosomatic medicine. i.e. likely up to 50% of all human health problems !
But, as we have just learned from the horse’s mouth - the trouble with modern psychiatry is that it is still without a working theory of the mind. Which is too much like saying: “My son’s a judge, but has a difficult job because there is no agreement on what constitutes the law.”!
An astute doctor might rationalise that the dog (which playfully chased Bill down the field at five years of age and, after he had fallen in the grass, licked his face whilst he was lying crying, frightened, hurt and winded from running) ‘might’ have something to do with Bill’s asthma and pronounce his problem as being a psychosomatic allergic reaction to dogs.
Or a similarly astute doctor might note that when Mary had measles at four years, her grandma – believing that very hot boiled milk was a good old-fashioned measles cure – had insisted on tearfully force-feeding it to her for a whole week saying each time: “Now stop crying”. Resulting in a later aversion to those words and that beverage which would – ‘oddly enough’ - make her break out into a rash not unlike measles.
But now we have another very interesting observation. Namely that, whilst physicians identify allergies in relation to the so-called ‘lower’ senses – i.e. the taste, touch and / or smell of a given substance – one seldom if ever hears of a person being allergic to the colour or shape of something, or allergic to the sound of something or to a word, statement, tone of voice or noise, etc.
Yet these involve the two ‘higher’ senses of sight and hearing, and one would expect that allergies via these two vital senses would thus have far more influence on a person’s life than allergies concerned only with the “lower” senses.
After all, we regard someone with poor or totally absent hearing or sight as very seriously disabled, but merely sympathise with a person who has a distorted or absent sense of taste, touch or smell which we consider as less of a handicap.
So . . . . are there also allergies to sights and sounds and, if so, how should we recognise / categorise them ?
We earlier started by examining the typical diagnostic progress of an allergy and the business of relating its incidence directly to the reoccurring presence of some physical ‘trigger’ in the subject’s environment, e.g. nuts, eggs, dairy produce, cats, dogs, bed bugs, new mown grass, chemicals, dust-mites, etc., etc., ad infinitum.
But if the trigger were a sight or a sound, are we able to know? Transient perception available to the subject at the time is not there for a later researcher.
Could it be a visible action of some sort ? Could it be a word or phrase ? And we need to ask these questions because we can see that when a stage hypnotist tells his subject “If I touch my tie, you will take off your jacket” - THE SUBJECT ACTUALLY DOES SO !
And when the hypnotist tells his subject “whenever I say “its hot in here”
you will put your jacket back on” - THE SUBJECT DOES SO.
Therefore it definitely could be an action, and it could be a word or phrase.
In fact the mechanism which the hypnotist uses is very like that which takes place in the mind when an allergic reaction crops up.
Some painful, threatening, enforced and unwanted incident in the subject’s earlier life tells him that dogs are dangerous and frightening and that they leave you breathless and crying, and that when dog’s are around you have to get away from them but that because you survived in a breathless and tearful state last time that’s probably a safe state to be in this time.
Not dis-similar to the hypnotist saying: “Whenever there’s a dog present you will get out of breath and your eyes will water” – and the subject does this. And rather similar to the hypnotist saying: “Whenever I say “now stop crying” you’ll break out in a measles-like rash” – and the subject does.
A person becomes capable of being hypnotised under a variety of conditions.
There can be a hypnotist present practising his or her trade . . . .
Or a person can be under the influence of one of the drugs listed as a “hypnotic” in the British National Formulary pharmaceutical “drugs bible”.
Or a person can be tired, poorly from some germ or virus, feeling dizzy from travel or sea-sickness, fainting from hunger, fatigue or lack of sleep, slightly or seriously physically injured, drunk, affected by food poisoning, fully or partly unconscious or generally under the weather, etc.
Drugs and other chemicals which can make you susceptible to verbal and visual suggestions or commands are too numerous to list here, but include: the main ranges of sedatives and sleeping pills, tranquillisers, the benzodiazepines, methadone, buprenorphine, many pain killers, nearly all street drugs (especially heroin and cannabis), alcohol, solvents and even the so-called ‘uppers’ in their hangover stage after their initial stimulative effect has worn off.
We’ve all heard the hypnotist say that he is going to put his subject into a ‘nice sleep’ and that when the subject ‘wakes up’ he will feel wide awake and refreshed and will forget all that has happened between ‘sleeping’ and ‘waking’.
And so the hypnotist’s subject really does not remember what happened to him or her !
Likewise, Bill and Mary do not recall their dog and milk and “now stop crying” incidents.
Like other researchers, if you think about this, you will recognise that the reason the hypnotist can create these sorts of effects is because – knowingly or unknowingly – he is using an existing natural mechanism of the human mind.
The same mechanism which accounts for psychosomatic illnesses including allergies – i.e the Reactive Mind discovered by L. Ron Hubbard.
In the same way that the body is a self-protecting and healing mechanism, so also is the human mind. But before we look into its self-protection mechanisms and how they can affect our lives, we need to look more closely at what the mind is and does, etc. Much more closely than psychiatry has ever managed to do.
This is of course psychiatry’s first and most fundamental failure. Its self-confessed failure to discover the true nature of the healthy mind and its operation. Pretending instead to be able to deal with so-called ‘mental disorders’, i.e. symptoms assumed by psychiatrists to have their source in the BRAINS of the ‘mentally ill’.
In fact psychiatry is so far away from a scientific understanding of the “mind” and “brain” that it actually confuses “mind” with the “brain”, which of course is merely a flesh and blood extension of the nervous system, a fact which can be verified in any butcher’s shop. (Somewhat like confusing ‘software’ with computer ‘hardware’.)
The mind is demonstrably:
i) an analytical mechanism which, using identification, comparison and differentiation, poses, observes and resolves problems to accomplish survival of the whole human organism and its controlling beingness, plus
ii) a reactive mechanism which works on a totally stimulus response basis restricted to identification (without analysis) to accomplish the survival of the body alone. (The ultra-fast motion of removing one’s hand from a hot stove without calculating its temperature is stimulus response).
Both parts of the mind do their ‘thinking’ with mental image pictures of actual experience and the analytical part also uses mental image pictures of imaginable experience to presuppose or postulate future survival.
(For a fully detailed and accurate description of the human mind see: “DIANETICS, the Modern Science of Mental Health” by L. Ron Hubbard, – to which this article is totally indebted.)
Between the analytical and the reactive minds ALL the experiences of the human organism are recorded. With the analytical mind operating at, and recording, only those times when the organism is awake and in good condition, and with the reactive mind continuously operating and recording, including those times when the body is experiencing actual physical pain, impact, injury and / or unconsciousness, loss, threat, fear, etc., . . . as well as times when the reactive mind is reminded by its environment of earlier physical pain, etc.
At such reactive (i.e. unreasoning) times, the analytical mind is fully or partially shut down, creating the condition of full or partial unconsciousness. In addition, any tastes, physical touchings, smells, sights and sounds present in the original painful incident can act as allergic triggers attempting to get the individual to move away from the area of restimulation because historically those perceived sensations were earlier associated with pain and / or unconsciousness, etc.
Unconsciousness is thus a full or partial loss of analytical control of the organism leading to full or partial reactive control of the organism.
The organism’s perceptions of its current environment are (subject to normal working of the organs of perception) all essentially recorded in date and time order in three-dimensional animated colour picture form along with sound, taste, touch, smell and action, and any conclusions and speculations made at the time.
These records of perceptions, etc., are made in both the reactive and the analytical minds when the latter mind is in operational control of the organism, but are made in the reactive mind alone when the analytical mind is in a state of unconsciousness or semi-consciousness. As a result, the analytical mind is basically unaware of the content of the reactive mind, and the recordings in the reactive mind are therefore un-analysed.
Stimulus response mechanisms in animals were first explored by Wundt’s student the Russian veterinarian Pavlov who confined his best known studies to what were essentially the reactive minds of dogs. These same minds he then mistakenly also attributed to human beings, completely missing the fact that humans normally operate analytically, displaying reactive conduct only when the body is under physical or reactive attack.
The hailing by many, of Wundt as the father of modern psychiatry, was that profession’s second major failure, as it has permitted the generation of the idea that man is a stimulus response zombie-like organism which can be controlled in the same way that Pavlov controlled, motivated and manipulated his dogs, and other researchers manipulated rats.
However such zombie-like response can only be achieved if an individual is kept in a continuing reactive state by the application of hypnosis, drugs, physical pain or discomfort and threats to survival.
It is therefore interesting that Britain’s most prolific pushers of pharmaceutical prescription drugs are psychiatrists, and that their marketing activities have largely involved the hypnotic drug categories and the creation of lifetime addiction via so-called ‘habit management’ and 'behaviour management' based on benzodiazepines, methadone, buprenorphine and other powerfully addictive drugs - all with painful side-effects and / or acutely uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms.
As the reader may well by now have recognised, the allergies of sight and sound mirror those conditions loosely defined as ‘mental illnesses’. It is a mental not a physical aberration when an individual will remove his jacket because someone else touches his tie. It is equally a psychosomatic aberration or condition when an individual will go into an asthma attack because a dog is present, or break out in a rash because someone says “now stop crying” and / or offers milk.
No part of the so-called technology of psychiatry has ever consistently produced results which benefited the patient.
Narcotic shock ‘therapy’, Pre-Frontal Lobotomy, E.C.T. (Electric Shock ‘therapy’), leucotomy and Deep Sleep “Therapy”, etc., have over the years contributed more to bringing psychiatry into disrepute than they have to the restoration of sanity and a normal life to its patients.
On the medical TRAINING side, there has long been a close control by the pharmaceutical industry of medical practice in general. However, just over half a century ago, with street drugs beginning to make their presence felt beyond the actual users, and with governments desperate for solutions to the growing “drugs problem”, the increasing “guidance” or “direction” by “big pharma” of the psychiatric sector started to become more marked, so that today it is without question true that a symbiotic relationship has been reached, and that psychiatry is now the pharmaceutical industry’s prescription drugs marketing arm.
This came just in time to give psychiatry a new lease of life based on a deliberate escalation of the prescribing of pharmaceutical drugs to mental health patients and drug addicts. The psychiatrists made their contribution to the burgeoning psycho-pharmaceutical relationship by quickly “discovering” more and more “mental conditions” (from a dozen or so to nearly 400 in less than 65 years) all of which luckily ‘proved treatable’ “ONLY” with pharmaceutical drugs - OR SO PSYCHIATRY SAYS !
In fact it is the pharmaceutical industry, plus its expanding range of potent prescription drugs (many of which are unsafe), which today keeps psychiatry in business, whilst in return the American Psychiatric Association invents more and more ‘mental disorders’ for which the pharmaceutical industry can develop treatments based on more and more profitable drugs.
And here we have another of psychiatry’s major failures. Instead of developing a true science of the mind & instead of totally inappropriately & dangerously applying research on dogs & rats to human beings, psychiatry has grabbed at the chance to be partnered with the wealth, power and influence of pharmacology and the international chemical industry.
The failures of psychiatry are not just:
1) its inability to truly help those with mental disorders.
2) its near total lack of real interest in beneficial results - the benevolence of many (but not all) psychiatrists having been subjugated to their desire for a good income based on a ‘fingers crossed’ dependence on pharmaceutical drug prescribing and,
3) psychiatry’s long-term attempts to rob Britain of truly effective prevention training and real cures by DELIBERATELY SABOTAGING those organisations which can deliver effective prevention and treatment, and which are thus able to expose psycho-pharmacological deceptions.
It is psychiatry which is doing most to usher in the bio-chemical society and thus condemn us all to a life as stimulus response drug controlled zombies. Their goal is a world population all daily dependent on medication or other drugs - SOLELY FOR PSYCHO-PHARMACEUTIC POWER AND PROFIT ! Which brings us back to allergies and “mental disorders” and why they do not get cured.
You will by now have recognised that an allergy is a condition which the sufferer carries with him or her. An allergy is personal to each sufferer. It is the sufferer’s mentally programmed personal reaction to a set of environmental circumstances which can occur anywhere and at any time.
Changing the environment does not change that condition. CHANGING THE SUFFERER’S MIND DOES.
And because the allergies of sight and sound are essentially what we today recognise as “poor Mental Health” the sufferer’s reaction can be changed by a Dianetics practitioner who knows the structure and mechanisms of the mind, and can thus help the individual locate the reactive incident(s) in his or her life which are acting as a hypnotic command triggering past reactions which are inappropriate and irrational for current environmental stimuli.
Please therefore recognise: . . . . that creating good mental health is quick and inexpensive when you know about the reactive mind and how to defeat it.
But instead pharmaceutically grant trained G.Ps currently “treat” (quite unwittingly) bogus mental disorders psychiatrically invented just in order to promote addictive pharmaceutical drugs sales.
IN OVER 50% OF CASES, IT TAKES ONLY ONE 7 TO 14 DAY, 3 TIMES A DAY, DOCTOR'S PRESCRIPTION OF AN ADDICTIVE DRUG (such as Opioid painkillers, Valium or another Benzo, etc.,) TO CREATE A LIFETIME INVOLUNTARY DRUG ADDICT, PAID FOR BY U.K. TAXPAYERS.
As a result, at a cost to the U.K. Taxpayer of £10,000,000 (£TEN MILLION POUNDS) a day, there are four times as many patients FULLY ADDICTED to National Health Service supplied LEGAL pharmaceutical drugs as there are individuals addicted to ILLEGAL recreational drugs !
Recovery from addictive substance use starts with a lasting return to the natural state of relaxed abstinence into which 99% of our population is born.
Such full recovery can be achieved by self-help addiction recovery training, but never by so-called opioid substitution “treatment” !
AND PLEASE REMEMBER:
YOU CAN NEVER BECOME ADDICTED TO A DRUG WHICH YOU NEVER TAKE . . . . BECAUSE IT IS DRUG-TAKING ALONE WHICH CREATES ADDICTION.
Which makes: “SAY “NO” TO DRUGS” the best advice ever given !
PLEASE ALSO REMEMBER:
When you spend N.H.S. budgets on keeping millions of patients daily addicted without cure, you also annually increase the number of patients IN TREATMENT and so increasingly deprive every other part of our N.H.S. and our A&E services of the funds, personnel, premises and equipment they so desperately need.
