Psychiatrist predicts the proposed IDSA guidelines could contribute to a “national and global epidemic of psychiatric illnesses”

‘..recommends against testing for Lyme disease …” the go-to of the current era, the modus operandi for ‘cover up big time’. The new norm. In NZ they don’t test for 1080 poisoning so as you won’t find it.  ‘Problem solved’. EWR

 


He points out that no psychiatrists sat on the guidelines panel. Yet, the IDSA recommends against testing for Lyme disease in adult patients with psychiatric illness.
“The proposed guidelines fail to recognize the clear causal association between Lyme disease and psychiatric illnesses in children and adults that may include suicide, violence, substance abuse and developmental disabilities. Suicide is a major cause of mortality in patients with Lyme disease.”

Psychiatrist Robert Bransfield predicts the proposed IDSA guidelines could contribute to a “national and global epidemic of psychiatric illnesses, suicide, violence, substance abuse and developmental disabilities in children and adults.”

Dr. Bransfield is an internationally recognized expert on how Lyme disease affects the brain. He has just published a scathing critique of the proposed IDSA Lyme guidelines as they relate to psychiatric conditions.

In an open-access article entitled Proposed Lyme Disease Guidelines and Psychiatric Illnesses, in the medical journal Healthcare, he calls the guidelines “evidence-biased” instead of “evidence-based.”

He points out that no psychiatrists sat on the guidelines panel. Yet, the IDSA recommends against testing for Lyme disease in adult patients with psychiatric illness. Furthermore, the guidelines recommend against Lyme testing for children with developmental, behavioral, or psychiatric disorders.

How Money From Pharmaceutical Companies Sways Doctors’ Prescriptions

They literally create a market because sold out medical professionals will write reports suggesting what is the current problem and then come up with the drug to fix it. Stay informed and definitely check the side effects by requesting the info or by checking online. Better still, find an holistic medical practitioner who will focus on your health and well being rather than treat symptoms. Here is more confirmation from Dr Mercola about the corruption that exists within the medical and pharmaceutical industry.

If your doctor receives money or gifts from a drug company, be it payment for a lecture or a free meal, does it influence the medications he or she in turn prescribes? This represents the burning question in an industry saturated with pharmaceutical company involvement.

A ProPublica analysis revealed nearly nine in 10 cardiologists, and seven in 10 internists and family practitioners, included in their study received payments from drug or device companies in 2014.[1] But the analysis didn’t stop there.

It also looked into whether or not such payments were associated with prescribing practices, and here’s where things got interesting.

 

Doctors Who Received Drug-Company Money Prescribed More Brand-Name Drugs

ProPublica analyzed the prescribing habits of doctors who wrote at least 1,000 prescriptions in the Medicare Part D drug program. The doctors belonged to five common specialties: psychiatry, cardiovascular disease, family medicine, internal medicine and ophthalmology.
