Spirituality and Health

Monday, November 27th, 2017

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines “health” as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

A more explicit focus on spirituality, often considered outside the realm of modern medicine, could improve a person’s well-being beyond that offered by a strictly medical approach to wellness.

A recent report from the Nurses’ Health Study, which followed more than 74,000 participants for 16 years, found that women who attended weekly religious services had an approximately 30% lower mortality rate compared with those who had never attended religious services; and those who attended religious services more than once per week had an approximately 40% lower mortality rate compared with those who had never attended religious services.

Another report from the Nurses’ Health Study noted that attendance at religious services was associated with a reduction in depression risk and a 6-fold reduction in suicide risk.

“Clinicians can begin to address the need by acknowledging spiritual health as part of obtaining a routine social history. Asking questions such as ‘Do you have a faith or spirituality that is important to you?’ and ‘Do you have a religious or spiritual support system to help you in times of need?’ signals respect for such issues while eliciting critical information to inform future care.”

Of course, don’t expect a psychiatrist or psychologist to routinely address spiritual care. For more than a century, mankind has been the unwitting guinea pig of psychiatry’s deliberate “social engineering” experiment which included an assault on the essential religious and moral strongholds of society.

It was in the late 1800’s that psychiatrists first sought to replace religion with their “soulless science.” The theory that “man is an animal” with no soul, which is the basis of psychiatry, was originally taught at Leipzig University, Germany, in the late 1800’s and then further promoted by Pavlov, Freud and others. In the 1940’s psychiatrists deliberately targeted religious values, sanitizing criminal conduct and redefining sin and evil as “mental disorders.” And today, family values, morality and religion have been attacked and made to seem old-fashioned by an insidious psychiatric “authority.” Indeed, the DSM-5 lists “Religious or spiritual problem” as a mental disorder.

By reducing spirituality to psychological (brain) factors, psychiatry has nearly sabotaged religion as a civilizing, cultural force. The pedophile priest scandal of recent years is directly traceable to psychiatry’s subversion of religion and infiltration of the church.

Psychology and psychiatry are not scientific disciplines as they are unable to provide objective proof of the existence of anything they diagnose or treat. With the sanctity of religion discredited by psychology and psychiatry, many people today live spiritually deprived lives, burdened physically and mentally with unrelieved guilt, insecurity, and without hope for their future.

Churches of all denominations should work together to provide humane and workable social services, such as drug rehabilitation, assisting the elderly, literacy and education programs, and religious programs to the community. They should refuse to allow psychiatry and psychology’s atheistic lies to create conflict within and between religions.

More attention to spiritual matters could bring medicine closer to the World Health Organization’s longstanding definition of health.

The Glue of Society

The Glue of Society

Religion is the glue that binds a culture together. Yet it has become customary to mock religion in America today.

We’re not talking here about devotion to a particular religious practice. We are talking about a decline in moral values that used to be shored up by our religious faith, religious leaders, and religious communities.

Diversity of belief is a sign of a healthy democracy. Yet we observe not just diversity, but hostility and antagonism.

A society that unjustly restricts the religious practices of one group will likely be found to undermine justice for all other groups.

There is a relationship between religion, religious freedom, and violence that needs further exploration. We find, yet again, that the junk sciences of psychiatry and psychology are involved in the decline of this culture.

A May 2014 study by researchers at Georgetown University and Brigham Young University found that, “Standards and practices of honesty and integrity rest, ultimately, on…ideas of right and wrong, which for most of us are grounded in principles of religion and the teachings of religious leaders.”

As a result of psychiatrists’ subversive plan for religion, the concepts of good and bad behavior, right and wrong conduct and personal responsibility have taken such a beating that people today have few or no guidelines for checking, judging or directing their behavior.

A co-founder of the World Federation for Mental Health, Canadian psychiatrist G. Brock Chisholm, reinforced this master plan in 1945 by targeting religious values and calling for psychiatrists to free “the race … from its crippling burden of good and evil.” Viciously usurping age-old religious principles, psychiatrists have sanitized criminal conduct and defined sin and evil as “mental disorders,” “treatable” with harmful and addictive psychotropic drugs.

Following are several Chisholm quotes:

“To achieve world government, it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, loyalty to family traditions, national patriotism and religious dogmas…”

“If the race is to be freed from its crippling burden of good and evil it must be psychiatrists who take the original responsibility.”

“The re-interpretation and eventually eradication of the concept of right and wrong which has been the basis of child training, the substitution of intelligent and rational thinking for faith…are the belated objectives of practically all effective psychotherapy. The fact is, that most psychiatrists and psychologists and other respectable people have escaped from these moral chains and are able to observe and think freely.”

Let’s face it, we’ve been fed a pack of lies and we are now seriously trying to eradicate, with terrorism on one side and the “war on terror” on the other side, each other.

Society is coming unglued.

The Hard Truth #2

The Hard Truth #2

In our May 5th newsletter we introduced The Hard Truth Magazine. We are delighted to recommend issue number 2 just released.

Here is a brief quote from this latest issue:

“In China, the Falun Gong (a pacifistic religious sect whose politically menacing motto is ‘Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance’) came to the attention of the Chinese Ministry of State Security because of its rapid growth. The state teamed with resident psychiatrists and developed a new mental disorder specifically for the Falun Gong: Evil cult-related mental disorder. … There are now thousands of Falun Gong practitioners in mental hospitals in the People’s Republic of China undergoing unspeakable torture. When they renounce Falun Gong, they are cured.”

Religions are facing an insidious assault that is not only sapping their spiritual and material strength, but in some cases threatening their very survival.

In the late 1800’s psychiatrists sought to replace religion with their “soulless science.” In 1940, psychiatry openly declared its plans when British psychiatrist John Rawling Rees, a co–founder of the World Federation for Mental Health, addressed a National Council of Mental Hygiene stating: “…since the last world war we have done much to infiltrate the various social organizations throughout the country … we have made a useful attack upon a number of professions. The two easiest of them naturally are the teaching profession and the Church … .”

The consequences have been devastating for both society and religion. Until recently, it was religion that provided man with the moral and spiritual markers necessary for him to create and maintain civilizations of which he could be proud. Religion provides the inspiration needed for a life of higher meaning and purpose. In this crisis, it falls upon religious leaders to take the decisive steps. Men of the cloth need to shake off the yoke of soulless materialism spawned by psychology and psychiatry and put religion back into the hands of the religious and out of the hands of psychiatry.

Vatican Investigates Psychiatric Drugging of Children

Vatican Investigates Psychiatric Drugging of Children

On June 14-15, the Vatican held a conference, “The Child as a Person and as a Patient: Therapeutic Approaches Compared,” in order to bring professionals together to discuss the harmful consequences of psychiatric drugging of children and pregnant mothers. The conference organizers hoped to prove that “psychosocial options” are better than “psychotropic care,”‘ and focus on two main drug groups, antidepressants and antipsychotics.

One of the conference organizers, Dr. Barry Duncan, a clinical psychologist and director of the Heart and Soul of Change Project, has called for “religious orders, Catholic schools, hospitals, medical associations, media and parishes to become informed and help children and families discover alternatives to psychiatric medications, as well as help them have real input when discussing the risks and benefits of such medications.”
