Psychotropic Drug Devastation: Legal, Illegal

A couple of weeks ago, I spent some time with an acquaintance of mine, who really needed some time. He was losing his mind, and knew it.

Way back in the late 60's, he did way too much LSD. (And some, especially in Marin, still think Timothy Leary was a genius. No. He was, however, fairly successful in bringing about the realization of one of his battle cries: "Bring it all down, Man." And so it has come down.)

So, he was always a little "off," and very prone to depression. This time, he was deeper in the pit than I had ever seen him. Yes, he was under the care of both a psychologist and a psychiatrist. Yes, he had a variety of prescriptions, from anti-depressants to anti-anxiety agents to anti-psychotics.

He was cogent enough to articulate that the (legal, prescribed) drugs he was taking were destroying his mind, but that he needed more and more powerful drugs just to get by. For the first time, I saw him exhibiting a condition known as akithesia, episodes of involuntary muscle jerks, brought about by the anti-psychotics.

Some think that illegal psychotropic (mind-altering) drugs are cool, and safe. Many think that legally prescribed psychotropic drugs are safe and effective. If you met this man, and say his pain, you would realize that both illegal and legal psychotropic drugs are dangerous to the individual, and a blight upon society.

That includes the "pushers," legal as well as illegal.

"What else can I do???"  The mind is within the brain. The brain is part of the nervous system, a system that is basically contiguous. Affect the nervous system with interference to its proper functioning, vertebral subluxation, anywhere in the spine, and you affect the brain. This holds, in the spine, as far away as the coccyx, the tailbone. Subluxation there directly impacts the meninges, the "bag" that holds the cerebro-spinal fluid.

Mental/emotional challenges? Begin with correcting Vertebral Subluxation, allowing your nervous system, INCLUDING YOUR BRAIN, to function better. Get straight chiropractic care now.
