Anyone who has done detailed research into the history of psychology and psychiatry understands these are not true sciences. They are, instead, approximate fields of research that offer various interpretations of emotional and mental problems.
One of the main ailments that many Americans suffer from, according to psychologists, is clinical depression.
This is allegedly when a chemical imbalance in the brain and shortage of serotonin absorption causes a lack of joy, feelings of hopelessness, and lack of energy and motivation.
Chemical balances have been proven to exist in some people. However, they are not nearly as common as the psychiatric profession is claiming.
What’s even worse is that the SSRIs (Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) pills that mental health professionals have been prescribing don’t do what they say they do.
New Study Exposes Psychological Lies
The new study out of the UK from reputed scientists at the University College of London exposes that the scientific proof just isn’t there behind these pills like Zoloft and Prozac.
The theory that people get depressed due to chemical shortage was put forward in the 1960s by a leftist professor and made billions of dollars since then.
People going through difficult life situations, loneliness, and mistreatment are told they have a specific disorder. Then, instead of dealing with what is causing their misery, they are prescribed pills that sometimes help and sometimes do not.
This has made many psychiatrists enormously rich and allowed psychologists to prey on those experiencing problems in life and blame those problems on them.
Chemical imbalance was only a theory for depression causation yet presented as facts to simplify a narrative in order to prescribe SSRIs. Most of psychology and psychiatry is based on myths. https://t.co/mqXuKvbveD

Are SSRIs Always Bogus?
No, they clearly do help some people. It’s just not clear why.
It is unclear why SSRIs do help some people who are depressed, and this is only one study. However, the study did find depressed people often had higher serotonin rates due to taking the pills and were still very depressed.
While it’s possible the pills do treat and regulate chemical fluxes, psychology has almost completely ignored dealing with the cause of people’s depression.
They prefer to ask how patients feel about their unsatisfactory life conditions, instead of actually taking concrete steps to fix them and removing the label of brokenness from them.
SSRIs are trending because as a society we have chosen to celebrate a news media who intentionally run clickbait headlines based on bunk science instead of valuing real journalism…and apparently any basic science education.

So Why Are People So Depressed?
With America the most medicated nation on earth, it’s worth asking why we’re so depressed.
The short answer is that our communities and way of life are breaking down. Divorce rates are way too high, religious attendance is at its lowest levels ever, and people are feeling alone and hopeless.
People are struggling with finding meaning in their lives; the problem is not how they feel about the frustrations in their lives, the problem is the actual frustrations and dead-ends.
Technology is miraculous and great, but it can also lead to even worse feelings of loneliness and separation with people spending their lives behind a curtain in a dark room.
This study is going to upset a lot of people in the mental health field, but it’s worth taking its findings seriously.
