Robert Whitaker Video – Are Treatments for Depression & Other Mental Illness The Root Cause of the Bipolar Epidemic? Anatomy of an Epidemic book review

by Joshua Parker on July 20, 2011

Robert Whitaker is one of the most articulate scientific authors which I’ve had the pleasure to read recently. His recent book Anatomy of An Epidemic definitively supports the notion that pharmaceutical drugs prescribed for anti-depression and other conditions have fueled the epidemic of bipolar disorder we face today.

Only decades ago, in the pre-pharmaceutical era the outcomes of Psychiatric therapies were statistically better than they have been with the introduction of “breakthrough” pharmaceutical drugs for treatment of Schizophrenia and other mental illness. Whitaker breaks down the pseudo-science at the heart of so called “Biological Psychiatry” and the notion that a chemical imbalance is the cause of mental illness and a pill is used to restore homeostasis.

Here is a video I created from Robert Whitaker’s presentation in Eugene, Oregon:


The paperback of his book “Anatomy of an Epidemic” will be out shortly on August 2nd but don’t wait; the beautifully published hardcover is so cheap on Amazon and linked here on the right it’s hard to imagine wanting to save $4 on the softcover – this is a title you’ll want to share in your library!

And once you get the Whitaker book and you are ready for natural solutions which really work instead of pharmaceutical drugs (I know – you’re probably already with me there already 😉 check out this Encyclopedia of Medical Breakthroughs – click here. (this link opens in a new window so you can keep watching/listening to the video)

Hi Joshua,
Any chance of getting via e-mail a summary of “Anatomy of an Epidemic”??
Thanks, Larry

Hi Joshua,
I just watched Robert Whitaker’s video. It’s very informative and eye opening.
I was in Hollywood last year and went to an exhibit by the CCHR (Citizens Commission on Human Rights). If you are interested in this or related topics. I would consider them the Gold Standard on this information. They have a website ( with all the data and some life changing videos. Hope you can take some time and check it out.

Hi Larry,
I’ll consider this – or would making an audio out of the video. Would that be helpful? It’s hard to summarize Robert’s work because he has so diligently referenced his assertions and without those references the conclusion may seem far fetched to someone new to his work. That said I may decide to write something up on this but in the meantime I’m glad to be able to share this video.
Thanks for your comment,

I wish the audio was better. This is a very interesting topic I could hear some of what he said but not as much as I would like to have heard.

Hi Dixie,
Thanks for the feedback. I’ll try to work on the audio and repost this.

Joshua, I have a unit I purched on line about 10 or 11 years ago. It was a Bio Solutions brand name of product. also had a rife beamer , optional. etc. I invested over 2 grand. I would like to know if you are fimiliar with this brand and is it effective due to the fact that they are out of businessl

I don’t think that you are taking into account the materials being sprayed on us by the secret government. These materials have been sprayed on us for a long time and as time goes on the spraying is increased. These materials are taked into the body and stored in the cells. Yes, the brain also. The secret government transmits certain frequencies that are know to affect human thinking and because the sprayed materials will resonate with these frequencies. My opinion is that not all people are affected enough and there is a conflict in their brain and this may be the created problem out of the spraying. Of course, you may want to look into this on the web for yourself to find out what’s really going on.
I have looked into this myself and can only say you must find the truth for yourself. Its out there if you are looking.

Hi Dale,
Please contact me on our helpdesk at so we can discuss this privately. The machine you are referring to is an audio only generator so it does have some limitations in that it can’t run the important 1930’s frequencies that were the most effective. This is unfortunately an issue that many machines of our current era have.
