In Pills We Trust: Are Doctors Helping You Or Hooking You?

In Pills We Trust: Are Doctors Helping You Or Hooking You?

By Ebony S. Muhammad

I would like to begin this entry with qualifying my position. To date I have two degrees in psychology specializing in forensics, abnormal psychology and psychiatry. I have received my certification in Thanatology, the study of death and dying and how we cope with grief/loss. I’ve worked for a major psychiatric agency that focused on clients (everyday people and those recently released from prison) diagnosed with ‘Major Depressive Disorder’, ‘Bipoloar Disorder’ and ‘Schizophrenia’, varying in levels from mild to severe. I’ve worked in maximum security prisons assisting inmates who were diagnosed with the above while in prison. I’ve worked with the county courts assisting those within the county jail system, including those who pled “not guilty for reason of insanity”. Lastly, I’ve facilitated rehabilitation sessions with newly released parolees diagnosed with the above.

To date, I am twelve years into being a VERY proud citizen of the Nation Of Islam under the Divine Leadership of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, who is a divinely guided Servant of God, a healer of minds, including mine, and a Student of a Master Teacher, the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad.  I am seven years into being a Gold Seal Dianetics Auditor under the instruction and guidance of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, facilitated by the Church Of Scientology founded by L. Ron Hubbard.


I went into this field of work over 17 years ago to make discoveries about the mind, human behavior (why we do what we do), and to acquire a solid resolution to healing our minds as a result of trauma.


While in school I learned everything I possibly could about both psychology and psychiatry, because this is where I believed the answer resided to the above discoveries and remedies. However, once inside this field, I was given a rude and unsettling awakening. It began during my weeks of training with the agency I worked for, which was also the agency I completed my internship with. I had to learn and practically master the information contained inside of The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual also known as the DSM (at that time it was the fourth edition). This publication contained every mental health ‘illness’, their criteria for diagnosis and the common symptoms of these ‘illnesses’. This is a publication organized by the American Psychiatric Association in Washington, DC. We were also given numerous print-outs with the well known prescription medications for treating those ‘illnesses’ and the side effects of those drugs. Along with that book I had to be thoroughly versed with The Complete Pill Guide, a publication that contains every pill ever manufactured (generic and brand-named) in the span of pharmaceutical history with their side effects, symptoms of overdose, etc.


One major aspect that I took note of was how common these symptoms for diagnosing mental health ‘illnesses’ were in terms of what we may exhibit in our day to day life. For example: If one is an introvert, it was considered in the DSM-IV to be suffering from “anti-social personality disorder”. If one were sad or experiencing feelings of loneliness, it was exhibiting criteria points of “major depressive disorder”. According to The Complete Pill Guide, symptoms of mental depression were listed as: sleep and appetite changes, sadness, guilt, shame, low self-esteem, anxiety, and extreme fatigue. Well this applies to 9 out of 10 Americans including children! When I brought up this point, I was told that it was the ‘prolonged duration’ and ‘combination of symptoms’ that made it valid as points for diagnosis. It sounded legit at the time, and I was a new graduate so I went with it…for the moment.


When my weeks of training ended I was assigned to one of the many locations of this agency and given my own office, which to any recent graduate coming straight out of school was grounds for calling all my classmates to brag. However, this office would soon become one of the most dreaded places I had to be in.


Quick Pause: While interning for this agency I was visiting an inmate in the courts before his hearing. He was arrested for male prostitution and had been in the system before. He was listed with being diagnosed with ‘Schizophrenia’, which usually come with symptoms of hallucinating, seeing and/or hearing things that aren’t actually there that alters one’s reality and causes a person to become paranoid. We weren’t even halfway into the psychological evaluation when he disclosed a piece of information that has stayed with me for nearly 17 years. When I asked him about the time he first began hearing and seeing things that he clearly understood weren’t there, he said it was during his first stay in prison. He said that he went in fine (mentally) but came out ‘different’. He recounted the day he had a severe headache and asked the guard for an Advil. The guard returned with an ‘unmarked pill’. When he asked about it he said the guard told him it was for headaches. He told me that he felt something wasn’t right, but since his headache was so bad he took it anyway. He said it was shortly after that and being given more, since apparently it wasn’t helping the actual headache, that he began to ‘feel strange’ and heard and saw things that weren’t real. This was the first but, unfortunately, not the last disturbing nudge I experienced.


During my work with this agency I was also completing my Masters in Psychology with a focus in Abnormal psychology. This is the branch of psychology that studies unusual patterns of behavior, emotion and thought and deals with it in a clinical context. My thesis revolved around the procedure known as a lobotomy, which is neurosurgical procedure where portions of the brain, usually the prefrontal lobe, is severed and aspects of the neurotransmitters are believed to alter a person’s mood and behavior to that which considered “more favorable”. This was where my awakening began to what was being done to clients as a result of receiving psychotropic drugs (modern-day lobotomies).


What I found during the research for my thesis were countless testimonies and cases of people receiving lobotomies. The transorbital or otherwise known as the ‘ice pick’ lobotomy, soon became a trend by an American physician, Walter Freeman. He was known for ‘training’ other physicians who were not qualified to perform this procedure. The ice pick lobotomy was administered using utensils that resembled ice picks, where the one performing the lobotomy would insert the instrument through the eye socket through the orbit using a hammer to reach the portion of the frontal or pre-frontal lobe, gave it a side-to-side motion to “re-arrange” the neural connections to “cure” the patient. Although it was radically invasive, only local anesthesia was used and generally took about ten minutes to perform. There are reports that in some cases it was done without the use of any anesthesia.


This form of ‘brain surgery’ was at times conducted on a stage before audiences. Many well-known public figures and celebrities were drawn in by the popular trend and received lobotomies. John F. Kennedy’s sister, Rosemary, who was reported by her family as being “retarded” and who suffered from “violent mood swings” was taken in to receive an ice pick lobotomy. Subsequent reports disputed the claims of her being any of the above but only struggling to keep up with her siblings. It was reported she had a very active social life and writings in her journal confirmed this. However, after the surgery, Rosemary was reduced to an infantile mentality that left her incontinent and staring blankly at walls for hours. Her verbal skills were reduced to unintelligible babble.


Many who jumped on the lobotomy bandwagon were housewives who felt ‘depressed’ (usually loneliness) and were sold the idea of happiness by way of receiving the lobotomy. Also parents who had a child or children with ‘behavior problems’ such as in the case of Howard Dully, were anxious to schedule a lobotomy to ‘cure the problem’. It was his step-mother who consulted with 6 doctors, 4 of which said she was the problem, before finding Dr. Freeman to administer the ice pick lobotomy on Howard Dully. He would be known as the youngest patient to receive such as procedure.


In this above clip, Dully states: “We like to put labels on everybody for everything, and I think that’s something we should really, as a society, look at. Just things I see going on with the kids in school now-a-days and the pills and the labeling, it frightens me. It’s just so easy to label someone and dump pills down their throat. I think we need to quit trying to modify other people, either chemically or with operations. I think we have nerve telling someone that they’re not ‘appropriate’, that they’re not valuable.”


The side effects following a lobotomy were reported as increased feelings of depression, anxiety, irritability, monotone and zombie-like disposition and suicidal thoughts and behavior. Dully, after his lobotomy, was reported to then only sit quietly grinning, saying nothing.


Many committed suicide after receiving the lobotomy. Children were no longer engaging in their usual playtime, and quite frankly became the complete opposite of what one would expect from a child. They were void of life. Does this sound familiar?
My thesis not only covered the history of the lobotomy, but it covered recent treatments or what would be considered a modern-day lobotomy by way of psychotropic medications. This was one of the many jaw-dropping moments during my research. The pill known as Trazadone was listed as a medication utilized in the same way and for the same reason as the ice pick lobotomy.


There were countless of other medications, many of which we see commercials for, that were listed along with Trazadone that are mind altering pills. This was unsettling to say the least, because many of the clients I saw at my time working with this agency were given prescriptions for that medication. My job, aside from the psych evaluations, were to hand the clients their prescriptions that were given to me after they saw the psychiatrist. So I saw exactly what clients were given as well as the detailed notes from their doctors. This was when I began to critically question all of my book knowledge and that which was given to me from this agency. I began recalling various sessions with clients, looking at their files and the date these clients began coming to this agency, the list of and dosage of medications received, the notes from previous clinical coordinators and evaluations. I began connecting the dots of what was actually being done to countless individuals and families. I saw that some of my clients had been coming to the clinic for over 25 years receiving the same medication with no measurable improvement. I thought to myself, “This system was not established to actually help people, but to in fact hook them, control them and continue taking money from them”.


I realized that my monthly reports and being able to see as many clients as possible were for funding purposes. I recalled becoming so frustrated with the doctors who would only see clients for 5 minutes, piling up files on my cart as I took 45 minutes to evaluate each client, with care and consideration. I sought to find the root of their suffering, while the other clinicians took 10 minutes to fill in the blanks of the computer generated form and give them their prescription sending them on their way to the pharmacy.


I watched how children, as young as 3 years old, were diagnosed and given prescription drugs. It was the most appalling and disturbing idea that children that young were being considered “abnormal” and given drugs to “normalize” them.


I created a binder filled with various therapeutic exercises, that I acquired during my internship facilitating group sessions, for the clients to do during the sessions we had together. I developed specific lines of questions to attempt to gather more information, going back as far as possible before they began receiving medication to pinpoint what trauma took place. After each session I gave the clients a survey to get their feedback about how they felt after the session, how they felt about the questions and if it helped them in any way. These surveys brought me to tears, because all of them expressed positive feedback and results, and it was proof that these individuals did not need to be medicated but needed to talk about their trauma in an organized fashion with the intention of getting to the root of matters.


I made a copy of this binder after seeing the overwhelmingly positive response from my clients to share it with the other clinicians. I shared my experience and success with my co-workers and placed the copy binder in our meeting room, where doctors placed our clients’ charts.  Two days later, that binder was nowhere to be found. I have my theory about what happened. Interestingly enough, no one ever asked about where it went or brought it up in discussion.


It didn’t stop me from challenging the agency’s way of “helping” clients. I was called into many meetings with the director, because of the time I was taking with each client and instructed not to give “so much attention” to them.


The final straw was when one of my newly admitted clients stopped coming after his first visit and filled prescription. He apparently also stopped taking his medication, which many clients do because of the side effects or if they begin to “feel better”. However, these medications on the market were designed for life-long refills and have very detrimental effects if one stops cold-turkey, which is also by design.


One morning when I arrived to the clinic, I saw a posting on the door of the clinicians wing regarding this client. When I opened my email a message was sent to inform me that the client, who was staying with an elderly woman after being released from prison, killed her.  This was after he ceased taking his medication, which altered his mind in such an abnormal way the moment he began taking it. So it wasn’t necessarily a result of him not taking the medication that caused his psychotic breakdown and manslaughter. It was initiated the second those chemicals and synthetic substances were introduced into his system altering his mind and chemical make-up.


You may recall the story of the Maryland mother  who was pushing her three-year-old son in a swing for three days straight and died as a result of doing so, who was found not guilty of her son’s death. It was determined that she was not responsible, because before the incident she stopped taking medication that was reportedly treating Schizophrenia. Shortly after she stopped, she was seen at the playground with her son, who was alive at the time, pushing him on the swing set for three days straight. Her son died of hypothermia and dehydration. It was reported that she had no recollection of what had happened. This is what these prescription medications are doing to those who take them.


I was instructed that if the client, who killed the elderly woman, came to the clinic to call authorities to have him involuntarily committed, which was something I had to do as a clinician when clients became violent or were found to be a threat to themselves or others.


Shortly after this incident, our job descriptions all of a sudden changed from being in the clinic to going to the clients’ homes to do the psych evaluations and give them their medications. We had approximately two weeks before this would take effect. I immediately began protesting this change, because 1) Our location already had field clinicians and 2) It would put us in immediate danger with clients who were no longer taking these medications (that caused their condition to worsen). I asked about a system of going in groups or at least in pairs, especially since it was documented that the current field clinicians experienced attacks on a regular basis AND one of my clients just committed a heinous act against another person. That request was denied. It seemed as though I was the only clinician that took issue with this change, and all of the clinicians were women.   I was called in to the director’s office to either submit to the change or turn in my resignation. I didn’t think twice about it. I gave my verbal resignation and then my written resignation before leaving that day. It was obvious that they didn’t care about the clinicians’ well-being, which at the end of the day wasn’t a surprise. It was more so about numbers to receive more funding by how many clients can be seen and medicated.


In the midst of working for this agency, I joined the Nation Of Islam and became a citizen under the direction and Divine Guidance of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan who is the National Representative to the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad. When I joined I knew that my prayers had been answered on so many levels, both personally and professionally in my desire to help heal the minds of the masses. So much of what I had been feeling was confirmed and I felt vindicated in my resignation. I recalled being excited by seeing the testimony on the back of Message To The Blackman In America, written by the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, who was referred to as “a master psychologist”.

I learned, by way of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, that in this society we have chemical and medical scientists, social engineers and executive marketing corporations who are studying trends among people to determine what the next trend will be and how to market the idea of “needing” what those mentioned above soon determine to be a demand. These scientists study the work conditions, music, movies, and other avenues to exploit our emotions and natural appetites. From there, we have pharmaceutical companies that distribute these medications and sales representatives to pitch to the various doctors of what medication is considered trending for a particular mental “illness” that is decided upon by way of a vote by the American Psychiatric Association in Washington, DC. These doctors are in private practices as well as agencies. Clinicians work to validate the need for these medications by doing the “evaluations”. It is a system to bait, hook and trap individuals in a never-ending spiral of mental and emotional instability. It is a form of mass mind control.

In the documentary, Marketing Madness: Are We All Insane? from the Church of Scientology, all of the above is confirmed by many those in the industry including psychiatrists, pharmaceutical sales representatives, patients and others. The DSM is a compilation of illnesses that are voted on by psychiatrists, of what the new illness will be, which is conveyed to the pharmaceutical companies in order to manufacture a drug to “treat it”. Many refer to these pills as “life style pills”, “happy pills”, etc. It was stated that Psychiatry is not verified as an actual science due to how subjective the symptoms are as they are relayed by the client and not observed by the doctor. Again, if one reports having pain in their arm, a doctor can take an x-ray and determine that it is fractured. If one complains of stomach pains, the doctor can take samples of fluids, an ultrasound, run tests and determine the presence of a stomach cancer.  However, psychiatrists listen, scroll through the DSM and determine from what the client expresses what mental illness to diagnose and what mind altering medication to prescribe. What this documentary disclosed was exactly what I saw taking place at the agency I worked for. There are no medical tests, no x-rays, or samples taken to make these diagnoses. It was also revealed in this documentary that doctors willfully give potential and existing clients free samples of these new medications, that ultimately hook the client to continue using it. The clients are encouraged to give their feedback as well. It is one of the most revealing documentaries of this field that exposes the lie and the liar, the strategy and the tactics used.



At the end of the day, it really starts with the individual; how they view themselves (if they believe something is “wrong” with them), how firmly rooted they are spiritually, what they were raised to believe in general and about themselves, how easily influenced they are, how easily impressionable they are by others they feel inferior to and how resilient they are after surviving some form of trauma. It starts with us and if we are open to being deceived. We’ll talk more about that shortly.



In 2016 the film Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe was released to exposed the link between vaccinations and Autism. Student Minister Tony Muhammad of the Nation Of Islam as well as healthcare professionals, parents, activists and those who are a part of the CDC Truth movement are holding one of the largest protests against vaccinations this coming March 31 in Washington, DC. These vaccinations that children are given have been reported by CDC whistleblowers to cause related injuries and fatalities, especially in Black boys but the Supreme Court has prevented the means by which families can sue the pharmaceutical industry.



Also, of the most talked about books that the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan stated he would send to the White House for Donald Trump to read, “Understanding the Assault on The Black Man, Black Manhood and Black Masculinity” written by Dr. Wesley Muhammad, delves into chemical and biological warfare and pharmaceutical assault (mind altering) administered by the U.S. Government.



The very thing they declare will “help” us is exactly what they are using to hook us and ultimately cause our very demise.


The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan pointed out during his 58 week lecture series, The Time and What Must Be Done Part 37: “Wicked Policy and America’s National Interest”, of Dr. Henry Kissinger’s National Security Study Memorandum 200, which stated this policy of depopulation that was accepted under President Gerald Ford that used agriculture (our food source), vaccinations and other means. This includes the medications that are administered to the American people and people all over the world.



In Study Guide 17 Hypocrisy and Conspiracy, it asks, “Can a person be part of a conspiracy and not know it? If so, how (by what means)?” The answer is emphatically yes, and this is taking place right now with the American people, unbeknownst to them that the food, vaccinations, prescriptions medications, abortions, etc, are a means of a conspiracy otherwise known as population control.

Minister Farrakhan spoke about this recently in a message at the Afrikan Black Coalition Conference in Long Beach, CA regarding those who have mastered chemistry in a way that alters one’s appearances as well as thoughts. He says, “Have you seen this commercial: ‘Have you taken this pill and you find out you’re developing breasts, stop taking it immediately.’ Just a pill, dang that’s chemistry for you. These are masters of chemistry. Now, wait, then they say, ‘If you take this pill and you find yourself having suicidal thoughts, stop taking that pill immediately.’ You mean a pill can influence the way you think? Another pill with chemistry can create breasts among men.”


These medications that are attached to various emotional states of instability such as Bipolar, Major Depressive Disorder, Anxiety Disorder, etc. are not the solution. Our problem is not medical. The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan states that our problem is spiritual.


The Study Guide 18: Rising Above Emotion Into the Thinking of God, meticulously teaches the reader how to take back power over their thinking, which is what produces emotions. It defines what emotion actually is and where it originates. It discusses various situations that challenge or stimulates different emotions. All of the Study Guides are rooted in the spiritual with references from the Bible and Holy Quran along with pure Revelation from God through the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan that guides us back to the state of submitting and seeking refuge in God, not a doctor.


In Study Guide #11, Allah (God) Is The True Center of Everything, it teaches and reminds the student to fear no one but God, to worship no one but God, to seek assistance from God, alone, because He is the Creator of all things and is deserved of being served alone and not with any other, including doctors.


It seems we have more faith in doctors then the Power and Might of the Almighty God. The enemy, these scientists and the pharmaceutical industry seeks to exploit our desire for immediate gratification, and because of our lack of patience with God, we end up in a worse condition.


The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan recently stated in Part 2 of his Saviours’ Day lecture, “Have No Fear for The Future: The Future is Ours!” that we are we are not born with patience and that patience is a virtue and a characteristic of God. It must be developed by striving for degrees of excellence in that Attribute.


So if doctors know that we are impatient and are easily frustrated and want a “cure” or to be “fixed” right away, they will manufacture something synthetic and foreign to the brain that will also create a since of dependency for this substance instead of telling you that what you are eating can naturally produce these chemicals in the brain, and if one is rooted spiritually they can conjure the will to overcome any impediment.  Teaching this truth would not be profitable to doctors.


Isn’t it interesting that the symbol used for medicine is of serpents crawling up a staff? The serpent has never been known for having virtuous characteristics especially in religion. In the Book of Genesis, we read how the serpent or one with qualities of a serpent deceived Adam and Eve into disobeying the instructions and commands of God and were, as a consequence, removed from a heavenly state, a peaceful residence, and were in a fallen condition. A staff represents authority, so teaches the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. Therefore, we can look at this symbol for medicine today as those using/abusing their authority to deceive the human family into disobeying what God has blessed us to have naturally, believing it to be of good, when in reality it has only caused us more pain, disease, worse condition of life, and without peace of mind.


Who do you put your faith in? Who do you trust with your life? Who is the best knower? In the Holy Quran, it often repeats that God is the best Knower and the All Wise. In Surah or Chapter 2: 1-2, it reads, “In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. I, Allah, am the best Knower. This Book, there is no doubt in it, is a guide to those who keep their duty”.  We are taught in both Bible and Holy Quran that God hates polytheism, the worship of a god or gods beside God. Our duty to God is to worship Him and Him alone, placing no other beside Him. We can’t say we love God, believe in God but then place the advice of a doctor above the Word and Guidance of God. That doctor’s advice should be bearing witness to the Guidance of God given to us through His Word. Nowhere in the Bible or Holy Quran does it advocate or promote the use of substances, prescription medication. As a matter of fact both Bible and Holy Quran speak against intoxicants (not just alcohol)!


Therefore, if what our doctors are telling us cannot be verified, supported by and found in what we say we live our lives by, the Word of God, then whose authority are we actually submitting to? Is it the serpent, the one exhibiting qualities and characteristics of a liar and deceiver and blood-sucker that administers a substance which is poisonous and deadly?


We have to be courageous in preserving the only life we have been given by being critical thinkers and challenging the information we are given, especially when it comes to our minds, lives and well-being (and that of our loved ones). We are free and should be encouraged to do our research with what we put into our body. Whether it is a mood altering drug, which sounds disturbing in and of itself, or a new diet, with the use of modern technology we should be quick to cross-reference what we are being told.


In the Holy Quran (14:22) The Truth Is Confirmed and it reads, “And the devil will say, when the matter is decided: Surely Allah promised you a promise of truth, and I promised you, then failed you. And I had no authority over you, except that I called you and you obeyed me; so blame me not but blame yourselves. I cannot come to your help, nor can you come to my help. I deny your associating me with Allah before. Surely for the unjust is a painful chastisement.”


As a matter of fact, did you know that Jesus taught against seeking out the advice of doctors? In the entry What Does the Bible Say About Doctors? Are They A Gift from God? Lorraine Day, M.D. outlines various verses in the Bible that teaches the follower of Christ to seek assistance and healing from God. Now, consider the context because there are times when you need a doctor such as for a broken bone. However, this is referring to the healing of the mind and spirit, which if conflicted can lead to physical ailments and disease vs. injury. In this writing Dr. Day is showing how the current practice of medicine and the administration of medication is a direct contradiction to what God teaches through Jesus. She even outlines how those in the Bible who sought the aid of doctors, experienced an untimely death as a consequence. Dr. Day bears witness to the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan in stating, “Disease, virtually ALL diseases, BEGINS as a Spiritual problem. It begins in the ‘heart’ because we want to live, eat, think, act, and handle stress our OWN way, rather than GOD’S way. We are in rebellion against God, whether we realize and acknowledge it or not. Only MUCH later do the physical symptoms appear- as a result [of] our OWN bad decisions.”


After my years of study, work experience, and investigation, the only prescription I accept and take on a daily basis to help me overcome emotional, spiritual and physical impediments is within the pages of How To Eat To Live, the Holy Quran, the truth of the Bible and the Teachings of The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad as taught by and represented by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan! They are the only ones teaching the Truth and exposing the lies given as well as the liars.  The Teachings of The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad is full of Life, Light and Power. It’s time we take our power back over our minds, bodies, and spirit! These are gifts from God that no doctor has authority over!
