    Alcohol, Drugs and the Brain

    in Family

    Background: Substances of abuse are a cultural phenomenon as ancient as civilization itself. Only recently, however, have scientists begun to study their effects on us, and more specifically, their effects on our brains. Why do people get addicted to drugs, tobacco, and alcohol?  Why is it so hard to kick a habit? It stands to reason that since drug use is self-destructive, people would naturally avoid it. This obviously is not the case. What is not so obvious, however, is why people turn to addictive drugs.  People use drugs, tobacco, and alcohol to feel good, without regard to the fact that long-term effects are very bad. Research is only now showing us how genetic and environmental factors all play a part in our susceptibility to substance addiction. 
    KEY WORDS: Alcoholism, dopamine, emotional memory, neurotransmitter, physical dependence, addiction

    4. Can drug use modify your brain? Yes.
    5. True or false: Nicotine is NOT an addictive substance. False
    6. How can alcohol abuse affect memory loss and dementia? Alcohol abuse can lead to or increase both.

    Psychotropic Drugs: Are You a Victim of Propaganda?

    in Health

    Today Nick & Joanna will be discussing the intricate web of psychiatry and pharmaceuticals. It seems these days that a psychiatrist's job is only about prescribing toxic medications without addressing the whole person.  Patients are also told that they should not come off of these drugs once they are on them. 

    Is there actually a test to determine whether someone has low serotonin in their body?  Should  there be?  Just as there is a test to determine blood sugar & whether someone has diabetes.... 

    Do you know what the DSM 5 is? Diganostic and Statistical Manual of Psychiatric Illness

    Can pharmaceuticals actually cause the symptoms they are designed to treat? What about suicial / homocidal ideation? 

    Where does the processing of feelings and emotions come in as a means to healing those traumas that cause anxiety, depression, "mood disorder", and more? 

    Where does nutrition and mind/body practices fit in to the therapeutic envireonment in which people need to heal? Is awareness or consciousness a factor? 

    What are the options for people who have been hopistalized? Are hospitals actually therapeutic environments in which patients can heal themselves? 

    Can things like meditation, hypnosis, yoga, nutrition, and breathing help?

    Where is the outrage over deaths from Legal Drugs?

    in Health

    Drugs: A huge amount of Americans use them. Chances are you have some in your medicine cabinet in your bathroom. Most drugs used in the U.S. today are legal, while some are illegal.

    Unfortunately, the picture of drugs portrayed by the mainstream media is very biased and one-sided, and not well understood by most Americans. So I want to present as much factual information here as possible, information you are not likely to read in the mainstream media since they themselves are very much funded and influenced by the pharmaceutical industry.

    There are More Deaths from Legal Drugs than Illegal Drugs

    Psychotropic drugs: How to stunt a child's developing brain

    in Psychology

    Join us this evening as Fred Shaw speaks about the drugging of America's children.  With a focus on foster children who are helpless to refuse deadly medications, the drugging of children across the country has reached epidemic proportions. 

    Psychiatrists have created the perfect crime:  Invent disorders to suit the pharmaceuticals being manufactured then label a child or even an adult with the fictional disorders.  The drugs are virtually untested.  No one knows for sure what they will do to the individual child.  What we do know is that these drugs can cause life-long injuries such as tremors, headaches, muscle damage and the shrinking of the frontal cortex of the brain. 

    While the term "foster care stare" describes the immediate effects of these toxic medications, no one seems willing to discuss the permanent damage including suicidal and homicidal thinking, aggression, violence and violent mood swings associated with them. 

    This show is produced in coordination with the Citizen's council On Human Rights

    4. Can drug use modify your brain? Yes.

    5. True or false: Nicotine is NOT an addictive substance. False

    6. How can alcohol abuse affect memory loss and dementia? Alcohol abuse can lead to or increase both.

    EXAMPLES OF DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: 1. How do drugs give people pleasure? Drugs are rewarding because they directly or indirectly stimulate the brain’s natural reward system and cause dopamine to be released. Dr. Steven Hyman: “Drugs are much more reliable and potent than normal stimuli. Instead of running that marathon, or for a scientist, working for months and writing a good paper and getting it accepted—a lot of work for a little dopamine in the brain—people who use drugs find that they can literally short-circuit all of these natural processes.”

    2. Why do some people fall quickly into addiction, while others can experi- ment and then walk away? Dr. Hyman: “You know, it’s hardly heroic that we use alcohol well. And there’s no special act of will. And this gets back to the issue of vulnerability. That is, people who will take drugs enough to potentially get addicted seem to seek them out and enjoy them. They seem to have fewer warning signs.” Dr. Alan Leshner: “It’s not true that you take a drug and you become addicted for the rest of your life. Some people do. Most people don’t. However, most people (who routinely use) ultimately will become addicted to an addicting substance.
