Doctors…are they legal drug dealers?

Prescription Thugs.

Good documentary about the prescription drug epidemic in our country. Big pharma, doctors, pharmaceutical reps…are they all just drug pushers and dealers? Big pharma doesn’t seem to want to create meds that eradicate illness…there is not as much profit in that. They want to develop drugs to manage symptoms and keep you reliant on meds. Narcotics like opiates, benzos and amphetamines are some of the most highly prescribed meds and are also highly correlated with addiction.

Childhood and the brain

Childhood Adversity

While childhood impacts brain development and the potential for either struggle or resilience depending on one’s experiences, the brain isn’t static.  Positive experiences and therapy can change and improve one’s brain chemistry.
