Woman Confined by Force to Psychiatric Ward for Praying and Fasting | Health Impact News

Woman Confined by Force to Psychiatric Ward for Praying and Fasting | Health Impact News | Healing Chronic Pain & Disease | Scoop.it
The use of psychiatry to diagnose people with mental illnesses and restrain them against their will in psychiatric wards is not new. Unfortunately, such stories are becoming much more common in the present-day USA. Justina Pelletier's story, for example, is gaining national attention even in the mainstream media right now. This 15-year-old girl has been confined to psychiatric care against her desire and the desires of her parents for over a year now. Psychiatry is not a medical science based on biology. There are no laboratory tests that can detect mental disease. All mental illnesses are defined by psychiatrists according to behaviors and then voted on to be included in their Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). The latest version, version 5 (DSM5) was published last year and is very controversial. New disorders are added with each revision, making it legal to prescribe dangerous and addictive drugs for these published mental diseases. This week the Courthouse News Service has published a news release regarding a case filed in court where a 56-year-old woman was forcibly confined to a psychiatric ward against her will for praying and fasting. Medical tyranny is alive and widely practiced in the U.S. today. And there are signs that the role of psychiatrists will increase under Obamacare.
