Today we will discuss a documentary that talks about the Diagnostic & Statistical Manual. This is a catalog of mental disorders who's influence pervades many aspects of modern society including our governments, courts, schools and the media. It is Psychiatry's engine that drives a $330 Billion dollar industry while harming a lot of patients in its wake.  But is there any proof behind the DSM, or is it nothing more than a pseudoscientific sham? Is there really such a thing as a "chemical imbalance"?

This documentary called, "Diagnostic & Statistical Manual, Psychiatry's Deadliest Scam" (put out by CCHR - Citizens Commission on Human Rights), was viewed at the Kalyana Centre and we feel it warrants some serious discussion. Learn how the DSM is connected to the ICD Codes that are used to bill insurance companies for pharmaceutical treatment. With all of the people who are taking psychiatric drugs these days we really need to be looking at what these drugs are doing to us in the short and long term. Can the use of these potent pharmaceuticals even be fatal?

Perhpas we need to be asking, what  are the symptoms telling us and what are the natural alternatives for healing?  Can we simply be pre-disposed to certain conditions because of our original mind/body constitution? Is there a place for hypnosis and Ayurveda in the management of such disorders, or are the disorders themselves, simply labels that place people in boxes rather than treating them as individuals having the full spectrum of feelings and emotions that we experience as human beings? 

This discussion should be quite enlightening and may warrant additional shows.
