What Did You Do In The War, Daddy?

Fri. May. 4th, 2012  |  Gary G. Kohls, MD

“What Did You Do in the War, Daddy?” was the title of a wonderful book written by Sabine Reichel. Reichel was born in devastated Hamburg in 1946 to Nazi-collaborator parents who were respected in their post-war community but had never talked to her about what they had done during the war years. The truth only came out during Reichel’s young adult years.

Then They Came for the Children An Analysis of the Official Cover-up of the Unwelcome Truths About the Canadian Genocide of Aboriginal Children

Thu. Apr. 26th, 2012  |  Gary G. Kohls, MD

By Guest Columnist Bill Annett From a recent edition of “The Canadian Shield” (Volume 3, Issue 3, titled “The Truth That Failed”) We’ve just spent half a day (perhaps too much) reading a 115-page tome, neither scholarly nor journalistic mais tous les deux, titled “They Came For The Children.” It’s the interim report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, that icon and crowning triumph of the conservative Stephen Harper’s Canadian majority government.

De-Mystifying Drug Addiction

Thu. Apr. 19th, 2012  |  Gary G. Kohls, MD

People who are addicted to nicotine, alcohol, street drugs, or psych drugs, or simply have addictive potential, may be lacking certain nutrients that the brain requires to manufacture the natural brain chemicals that are called neurotransmitters. The major neurotransmitters that affe

America’s Mental Illness Disability and Dementia Epidemic: It Turns Out That the Drugs Are the Problem

Thu. Apr. 12th, 2012  |  Gary G. Kohls, MD

Since the introduction of major tranquilizers like Thorazine and Haldol, “minor” tranquilizers like Miltown, Librium and Valium, and the dozens of so-called antidepressants like Prozac, Zoloft and Paxil, tens of millions of unsuspecting Americans have become mired deeply, to the point of permanent disability, in the American mental “health” system. Many of these innocents have actually been made “crazy” and often disabled by the use of—or the withdrawal from—these commonly prescribed, brain-altering, and, for many, brain-damaging psychiatric drugs that hav

Cognitive Dissonance, BigPharma and Modern Medicine

Thu. Mar. 29th, 2012

In my weekly column, which I have been writing for Duluth’s Reader Weekly since 2009, I have written a number of essays about issues that should be of seriously concern for mental health practitioners whose practices rely heavily on the use of psychotropic drugs. Patients - and their loved ones - should also be concerned about the potential for long-term adverse effects of the brain-altering medications.

A Response to the March 15 letter to the Reader entitled “Taking Gary Kohls to Task”

Thu. Mar. 22nd, 2012  |  Gary G. Kohls, MD

I welcomed the challenges in last week’s Reader letter from Doctors D’Allaird, Doane, Duus, Heck, Jagim and Saracino to my occasional Duty to Warn columns that have mentioned unwelcome information about the dangers of the seriously over-prescribed and proven to be neurotoxic synthetic chemicals known as psychotropic drugs. Most of the Duty to Warn columns also contained information abou

Racism is Alive and Well in America and in the Northland, But So Are Militarism and Economic Oppression (per MLK)

Thu. Mar. 8th, 2012  |  Gary G. Kohls, MD

Progressive Northland residents were shocked this week by the negative internet comments (received from people all across the nation, including locally) that were directed against the worthy Unfair Campaign (www.unfaircampaign.org) that was launched last week by a coalition of progressive organizations as another attempt to address white racism.

Another Day, Another Celebrity Suicide, Another School Shooting

Thu. Mar. 1st, 2012  |  Gary G. Kohls, MD

Congratulations America. In recent months you have managed to claim a few more celebrities to suicide and/or homicide. And there is no sign that the trend is subsiding. Not only are celebrities at continued risk, but you have claimed hundreds...
