Psychology Goes To The Dogs

Not content with imposing their failed methods on mankind, psychologists have begun extending their travesties to the animal world, with the advent of "psychology" for animals.

Perhaps we should applaud this. It is a step up from abusing animals in their ghoulish experiments (ala Pavlov et al) but the latest report in this dark carnival is worthy of note:

According to CNN, California man Flody Suarez is suing the owner of the "Dog Psychology Center", to whom he took his 5-year-old Labrador. The dog apparently suffered from fears of other dogs and strangers.

Apparently the techniques of the dog psychologist, who appears on a regular TV show and calls himself the "Dog Whisperer", left Suarez' lab in intensive care at the veterinarian, "bleeding from his mouth and nose, in an oxygen tent gasping for breath and with severe bruising to his back inner thighs,"

According to the article, "The facility's workers allegedly placed a choke collar on the dog, pulled him onto a treadmill and forced him to "overwork." Suarez says he spent at least $25,000 on medical bills and the dog must undergo more surgeries for damage to his esophagus."

It's too bad Suarez wasn't aware of what psychology does to its human victims. He might have been more chary of trusting his beloved dog to such a charletan. The best expose of psychology and psychiatry is at the CCHR Exhibit "Psychiatry: An Industry of Death" in Hollywood.

Kevin Trudeau's "Natural Cures"

One of the most popular and influential authors in the world of alternative solutions to medical problems is Kevin Trudeau, author of the best seller Natural Cures.

One of the points Trudeau makes in his book is the importance of avoiding psychiatric solutions. This is a quote from the book, available at

"Stay away from psychiatrists and psychologists.""Psychiatrists and psychologists do not help the people they treat. Statistics show that the majority of people who are treated by psychiatrists and psychologists actually get worse. Psychiatrists almost always prescribe drugs to their petients. These drugs are some of the most dangerous and deadly pharmaceuticals available today. Did you know that in the last ten years, virtually every violent act committed in schools was perpetrated by a person who either had taken or was currently taking a psychiatric drug? Finally, the research has become so compelling that there are warnings saying that certain psychiatric drugs actually increase the propensity to commit suicide. This is such an important issue that I encourage you to read PSYCHIATRY: THE ULTIMATE BETRAYAL [Note: Also available on] and if you are still not convinced that psychiatrists and psychologists should be avoided at all costs, I will personally make a donation to the charity of your choice."
