"The Basis of Psychiatric Evaluation and Treatment"
July 11th. 2013   Independent Scholars' Evenings. 7.00 p.m. at 1530 Fifth. Avenue. Moline. IL
Brian Olshansky, MD, FACC, FAHA, FHRS, a board certified clinical cardiac electrophysiologist, is a tenured Professor Emeritus of Medicine at The University of Iowa.
The psychiatry profession has been given a free ride for years concocting mutilating surgeries, inhumane treatment of the "insane" and crippling drugs to control behavior.  To date, none of their techniques or medicines have been proven effective for any specific condition.
It is time to rethink the profession and develop sound ways to deal with "mental illness". 
The profession is particularly adept at creating disturbances that appear on the surface to have validity but with a careful look are nothing more than methods to label and disable.  Further, they have worked hand in hand with pharmaceutical companies to create new ways to drug, intoxicate and control the public at high expense and at high risk to our society.
The unwitting public has taken the psychiatric profession at face value -Their therapies are potentially deadly and there is little if any real scientific evidence of benefit.
