The Dr. Peter Breggin Hour – 09.21.16

Wayne Douglas went through benzo hell and lived to tell the tale, leaving psychiatric drugs behind. His story teaches us how bad benzodiazepines are for the human body and soul, and also how hard work and determination, and healthy living, can help us triumph over the nasty mental and neurological effects of these drugs during both toxic exposure and withdrawal. He shares his experiences trying to get redress in the Japanese court system and, as a bonus, he also dramatically describes how he also survived the Fukushima earthquake and the subsequent nuclear meltdown. Very interesting stories from a courageous man!
