Shock Treatments Quack Medicine, May Cause Alzheimer’s

In 1938 Dr. Ugo Cerletti became interested in how pigs were prepared for slaughter by being electrically shocked through the temples. This rendered them unconscious but did not kill them.

The idea to use ECT in humans came first to Dr. Cerletti after watching pigs being electrically shocked before being butchered in Rome. The story goes that on his way home, he stopped at a butcher shop. The shop didn’t have the cut he wanted, and was told to walk back to the slaughter house behind the shop to have the cut made for him. At that slaughter house, the technique used for butchering cattle was to shock their heads. The cattle would go into seizures and fall down. This made it easy to slit their throats, as the cattle couldn’t resist or fight back.

Dr Cerletti reasoned that ECT might be useful for schizophrenia so he decieded to try it on his patients. He found such electric shocks caused his obsessive and difficult mental patients to become meek and manageable.

Soon other “doctors” followed suit and began using shock treatment on their patients. It is important to note that these “treatments” have little expense and produce high profits for quacks who administer them.

It is also important to note that the human brain operates by minute electrical impulses and is very delicate.

According to this article, at http://www.antipsychiatry.org/ect.htm “ECT consists of electricity being passed through the brain with a force of from 70 to 400 volts and an amperage of from 200 milli amperes to 1.6 amperes (1600 milli amperes)”. This level of voltage causes the patient to have seizures.

At higher voltage levels, Electric Chairs applied electric current to convicts heads to fry their brains and kill them.

Any rational person should conclude that forcing electrical current through a person’s brain and causing a patient to have seizures is barbaric and yet another example of “man’s inhumanity to man”. 

It is also only reasonable to conclude that anything which the body perceives as painful, is just plain BAD and contrary to God and Nature.

Electricity should be used as intended.. to power lights, appliances, etc NOT hooked up to human beings or animals. That also includes tasers… they should be also outlawed.

Tasers and Shock Treatments has caused deaths. Just google “Shock Treatment Deaths” or “Tasers Deaths” and you’ll find instances and statistics.

Here’s more articles about the dangers of Shock Treatments…

It is hard to believe in the 21 century that Shock Treatments hasn’t been outlawed. I think doctors who support Shock Treatments are either incompetent and/or they have a monetary interest in administering these low cost / high profit quack “treatments”.

Shock Treatments are an ideal way for the most incompetent Doctors and Psychiatrist to make money. They could have graduated at the bottom of their class and have no working knowledge of medicine, yet still make thousands of dollars a day pushing an on / off button on a ECT device.

It’s no wonder these “doctors” swear ECT helps patients because it’s a gravy train which they don’t want to end. There’s a whole food chain which has a vested interest to making sure these barbaric treatments continue including Doctors who administer them, manufactures which make ECT devices and profit from their sales, lobbyist which is bought & paid for by Doctors and ECT manufactures. Congressmen who are paid by lobbyist, Doctors and ECT manufactures to prevent legislation from being passed which would outlaw Shock Treatments.

This is another example of greed and capitalism gone amok – patients and common sense be damned!

I think any doctor who is responsible for their patient receiving Shock Treatments should get hooked up to a ECT set on maximum (400 volts) and they should have the SH*IT Shocked out of them to see how THEY like it. That might make them think twice about performing electro torture on another human being.

In the 1970’s my mother had shock treatments and she was never the same afterwards.

For years after the shock treatments, any time she would hear an electric motor humming it would drive my mother nuts and make her feel like passing out. That is because the frequency of an electric motor is 60 cycles per second, the same as the alternating current used in shock treatments. The sound of a electric motor apparently made her remember and re-live the torture and pain she endured at the hands of a QUACK “doctor”.

She now has Alzheimer’s and cannot walk. Out of a family of 7, she was the only sibling to have shock treatments and she is the only one from her family to have Alzheimer’s disease and not able to walk.

My Mom does not know what day it is, what year it is or what city she’s living in. There are times when she doesn’t know who I am.

It is a documented fact that some people who has had shock treatments suffers severe memory loss.

I feel that her having shock treatments caused her to have Alzheimer’s disease and to not be able to walk.

One of my goals in life is to have legislation passed to make Shock Treatments illegal.
