ImunStem is the only one hundred percent herbal product that has ever been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a pharmacological agent.  It is approved by the FDA for the treatment of Serious or Life-threatening illnesses through immunotherapy. Aktiffvate is a nutritional supplement that acts as an herbal stimulant.  More information can be obtained about these two products from Golden Sunrise Pharmaceutical that produces them. 

S.R. is a 40-year-old white male who has been in treatment in my psychiatric practice for 15 years. He was transferred to my practice from another psychiatrist who changed his job. He had been in treatment with that psychiatrist for four years. He had been hospitalized at a local psychiatric hospital for hallucinations. When I first saw him he was taking Wellburtrin-SR 100mg three times a day, Clozaril 600mg at bedtime, Zoloft 200mg in the morning. Topamax 100mg at bedtime, and Aricept 20mg at bedtime. He has a history of abusing marijuana, crank, acid, and mushrooms, between the ages of 17 and 21. He stopped using substances when the hallucinations started. 

Attempts were constantly made over the years to adjust his medicines to try and avoid the psychotic symptoms, the symptoms of depression, and panic attacks. He has had trials of an Invega, Neurontin, Gabitril, Cerefolin, Saphris, Fanapt, Klonopin, Ativan, Latuda, Prozac, and Nudexta. Attempts to remove his antipsychotic medications were always met with the recurrence of his psychotic symptoms. 

In July 2016 he was taking (Vraylar 6mg) in the morning, (Fanapt 6mg) twice a day, (Nudexta 10mg) twice a day, (Clorazepate 15mg) at bedtime, (Prozac 60mg) in the morning, (Clozaril 300mg) at bedtime, (Abilify 3mg) in the morning, and (Gabitril 4mg) at bedtime. At this point in time he was started on ImunStem 10 drops twice a day and Aktiffvate 10 drops twice a day. After 2-1/2 weeks of treatment he stated “my brain can’t keep up with my mind.” He reported that his brain was now aware of how his body was feeling. He felt that he had more energy and was thinking clearer. He reported that his thoughts did not race and he is able to keep up with his thoughts. At this point in time Gabitril and Abilify were discontinued. Over the next two months medications were decreased and finally in November 2016 he was taking Clozaril 300mg at bedtime, Vraylar 6mg in the morning, Clorazepate 15mg at bedtime, Nudexta 10mg twice a day, and Prozac 60mg in the morning. Despite the elimination of three neuroleptic medications, his psychotic symptoms have not returned. His energy level, focus and concentration continue to improve. Plans are to continue reducing his neuroleptic medication as tolerated. 

This case history is being presented to share the novel and unique approach of using these herbal/botanical products for the treatment of someone with schizoaffective disorder. I hope this information is helpful ….

We can see how critical it is to, first of all, help our young people find purpose in wholesome activities, and second, understand what drugs and medications do in our body. They drain the body’s “Health Bank Account.” Health is the only thing our body can use to fight off symptoms and diseases. When we build our health, we build our body’s ability to resist disease. Drugs and medications appear to help us with one hand while their other hand is reaching deep into the pockets of our “Health Bank Account.” The gradual draining of our health reserves is what brings on “side effects”.

The Physician’s Desk Reference lists all the side effects. The first three medications that Dr. Barnett mentions have 130 side effects listed. The third medication, starting with a Z, has the least; only 26. Among those are hot flashes, ejaculation failure, libido decrease, fatigue, flatulence and insomnia. Good gravy. That alone would be depressing.

No matter what our age or health condition, the only way to reach and remain in tip-top shape is to fill our “Health Bank Accounts” with all the vitamin, mineral, antioxidant, and enzyme nutrient contents they can hold. Nutrients are “Body-Money”. 

ImunStem, Aktiffvate and the other all herbal/botanical products from Golden Sunrise Pharmaceutical are jam packed with rare nutrient and protein molecules. They build everyone’s health powerfully, and that’s why Dr. Barnett is getting this kind of success with difficult cases.
