Medicating Motherhood – the Threat to our Children
This issue focuses on the pharmaceutical threat to our children (even the unborn!) and what we can do about it.
We hope you are enjoying this great new year. Here in British Columbia, the beautiful Fraser Valley is awakening for spring, with willows and cherry blossoms bursting into warm, sunny days. It’s time to get outside whenever possible to soak up natural source vitamin D from the sunshine!
We have been reflecting on the precious freedoms that we still enjoy. We have the freedom to think and choose for ourselves, especially in the area of self-health. This is an amazing window of opportunity. Who knows how long this will last? Just last week the US Supreme Court gave “FDA approved” medical device suppliers immunity from victim lawsuits from their defective and dangerous products. The Court’s first case this week is looking to have the Court extend this protection to drug manufacturers as well. It looks like Big Pharma and Big Medicine are getting ever bolder in their attacks on our health, and our rights to protection from their dangerous and unsafe products.
And now the drug merchants of Big Pharma are declaring war on motherhood itself!
3/17/08: FOUR YEARS AGO TODAY
Four years ago today, GlaxoSmithKline had not yet warned of lethal Paxil heart defects and other birth deformities. The FDA had not warned of suicides caused by Zoloft and other SSRIs, or homicides caused by antidepressant drugs.
One-week old Manie was in a 12 hour surgery, the first open heart surgery in a series of many surgeries to come.
I had a normal pregnancy with Manie. I even had a couple of ultrasounds done while I was pregnant with Manie. There were no clues that Manie had a rare heart defect. I had already 3 perfectly healthy kids and did not expect for Manie to be any different.
As soon as Manie was born he began to turn blue. The more he cried the more he turned blue. Our doctor did not know what was wrong with Manie. The doctor thought that it might be his heart or his lungs.
Manie was flown to a hospital an hour and a half away from where we live. I had to stay at the hospital where I had Manie. The doctors called me when Manie arrived and told me Manie had transposition of the great arteries.
I was told that Manie had to have a procedure done to save his life. The doctors went through the artery on the inside of Manie’s right leg. The doctors snaked a balloon all the way through the artery to Manie’s heart. Once the doctors were in Manie’s heart they blew the balloon up and ripped a hole in Manie’s heart.
In the days following the surgery Manie’s leg and foot started to turn a dark purple. The doctors told us that Manie may have to have his leg amputated because the procedure damaged the artery in Manie’s leg.
Right before Manie’s open heart surgery the doctors put Manie on blood thinners. Shortly after putting Manie on blood thinners they were able to detect a pulse in Manie’s foot. Manie kept his leg. [read on for more of Manie’s story and the heartbreak that came from his mother’s Paxil prescription]
Click here to read about why these drugs are so dangerous, and in fact do the exact opposite of what is needed for recovery for those who get duped into taking the drugs. This is an explanation of the action of serotonergic drugs, testimony that contributed to the issuance of our current black box suicide warning from the FDA. To read more about some of the negative consequences of taking a serotonergic drug, please click here and read this article about Serotonin Syndrome, and especially look at the drugs that are also serotonergic (cocaine, LSD, PCP, meth, etc.).
Four years ago today, the MOTHERS Act was about to fail for the second time in Congress. Why now do we suddenly have so much overwhelming support for this bill?
BRANDING PREGNANCY AS MENTAL ILLNESS
By Byron J. Richards, CCN
March 13, 2008
The Mothers Act is pending legislation that will indoctrinate hundreds of thousands of mothers into taking dangerous psych drugs. It is a great example of how the Big Pharma lobby controls Congress to the detriment of health, as well as needlessly and dramatically inflating the costs of our health care system for everyone. Like any piece of legislation it purports to address a troubling issue – in this case the mood distress of mothers following birth known as postpartum depression. It is true that 10% – 15% of women need some assistance in dealing with this topic – but the majority of them sure don’t need it from Big Pharma. That is the Big Lie.
The Mothers Act (S. 1375: Mom’s Opportunity to Access Health, Education, Research, and Support for Postpartum Depression Act) has the net affect of reclassifying the natural process of pregnancy and birth as a mental disorder that requires the use of unproven and extremely dangerous psychotropic medications (which can also easily harm the child). Urgent consumer action (see below) is needed to stop this atrocity, as the Senate could now vote any day…
Rather unbelievably up to this point is that the cause of defeating this legislation has fallen onto the shoulders of one young mother, Amy Philo. When she struggled with postpartum stress she was placed on the very same psych drugs advocated for use in the Mothers Act legislation. She began having violent thoughts towards her child and suicidal thinking. Her not very bright doctor had her double and then triple her dose, nearly killing her.
She is lucky to be alive today and wants to warn other mothers of the dangers inherent in the Mothers Act. Watch below for her compelling YouTube story. Please share this with your friends!
If you care about moms and babes, and you live in the USA, please ACT on this today!

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE TOOTH ZAPPICATOR?
As you will see on our website, we have discontinued the Tooth Zappicator. In recent correspondence from Dr. Clark, she said she felt that the Super Zappicator can do the same work. The Super Zappicator is faster, easier and capable of doing much more than dental help. As Dr. Clark has reported in her last three books, it can help you easily to purify food, as well as rid your body of toxins and parasites. See the surprising details here.
Zapper Q & A
A. Yes, but Dr. Clark recommends removing the toxic and radioactive metals as soon as possible. According to Dr. Clark’s testing with the Syncrometer, the Super Zappicator will help your body clear out the remains of toxic dental materials embedded in the gums and other tissues. It also hardens dental plastic materials so that they do not leak toxins.

This is from our local natural healing friend, Joanne, who introduced us to Dr. Clark’s first book in 1994:
“Rejoice with me! This lady was supposed to go to Vancouver for further testing for a breast lump which was giving her some concern. I answered her question that the technical name for the device was not very technical at all (Auto Zap)… Joanne.
That really did it. The tenderness and redness was about 60% better yesterday and today I would not know that I’d had a cyst if I did not know better. No redness, only a tad of tenderness left. Cool! Thank you! I’d say the size of the cyst was about 3/4 of an inch. So just for testimony’s sake, what’s the technical term for the zapper…Thanks again for your help. Christa
THAT’S ALL, FOLKS!
See you again soon, when we get back from visiting with Dr. Clark.
God bless you!
