Article is From "HOUSE CALLS" written by Dr. William B. Ferril

About Dr. Ferril
After a decade of practicing mainstream medicine on the Flathead Indian reservation in Western Montana, Dr. William B. Ferril did something unthinkable to most practicing physicians… he walked away from medicine!

Dr. Ferril became convinced that modern medicine was betraying patients with its focus on hurried appointments and dangerous, symptom-masking prescription drugs. Medicine had lost the art of true healing, and Dr. Ferril decided he owed it to his patients… and to himself…to rediscover it.



More bad news for antidepressants


I've already given you plenty of reasons to avoid antidepressants.

And now, I've got one more.

New research shows that these powerful meds can cancel out the effects of the most popular cancer-fighting drugs used by women who have suffered from breast cancer.

Researchers looked at women who took tamoxifen, a cancer-fighting drug that can cut the risk of a cancer recurrence in half, and compared their medical histories against women who took it along with certain antidepressants.

They found that the cancers returned in 7 percent of the women who took just the cancer drug -- but 14 percent of the women who took both the cancer drug and certain antidepressants.

Doctors presented their research at a American Society of Clinical Oncology conference in May.

Antidepressants are some of our most over-prescribed drugs. Some women take them to help deal with the symptoms of menopause, because hormone treatments are generally not considered safe after breast cancer.

But there are alternative treatments, and I would suggest that all women -- not just breast cancer survivors -- speak with their doctors about their options, whether they're dealing with depression or menopause.

Not only are these meds too dangerous, they don't work all that well either.

I've helped a lot of my patients win their battles with depression, and antidepressants have never been the preferred approach.

When I do prescribe them, it's a temporary solution while we work on finding and treating the underlying condition. In addition, I closely monitor my patients who take these drugs, because they can affect your body in so many ways -- most of them bad.

Some of them contain fluorine, the most powerful oxidizing element on the planet -- and the results can be disastrous when it gets a free ride into your brain thanks to these drugs.

So I already have big concerns over antidepressants. But what really worries me is what we still don't know about them.

Big Pharma has gotten many of these meds rammed through the system like a freight train, and as a result we're always finding out more about their possible side effects and interactions.

Today, we've learned that they may cause a recurrence of breast cancer. But what will we learn tomorrow?

Get off these meds as soon as you safely can, and when we do find out -- you won't have to worry.

My Lyme Dr. asked me to wean off Paxil and I'm doing that right now. I hope I'll be OK -

He said that there is a study that shows that long term use causes the drug to longer longer work.

I wouldn't mind getting rid of it. He also wants me to wean off my Ativan. I said I'd try. We'll see. I'd try anything for him!

Thanks for posting this, Dana. I know you've had your hands full lately.

Big hugs

Oh boy, I just read the "prayers for Krissy" post - apparently she is having a hard time switching.

I have wanted to be on them, but I am so sensitive they make me feel crazy.

How is the Ceftin/Biaxin working Molly? I am so interested in your protocol! What do you think so far? Are you on abx right now or off?

I hope your LLMd takes you off these at different times. Let us know how it goes.

Love,
Dana

Ceftin and Biaxin is going well. I am on my second month now. I couldn't take a break aftter 30 days as I was still very ill.

I see my Dr. again next week. I think he's going to switch things up - he had some new info (including the anti depressant stuff) and he took many vials of blood and tested me for all sorts of infections. I look forward to my visit next week.

I saw my Naturpath today and some infections showed up as well as high mold and less parasites (and stuff I can't remember).

It's been a week on 3/4 of my Antidepressant and i have to admit I was very ornery today --- it could be PMS, though. We'll see :)

I'll check in in a couple of days - going on a little boat trip tomorrow and Sat.
