While there are vast differences within these categories and there are books I will review that explain their histories and origins, in a nutshell the main differences between psychiatrists and psychologists are:
Psychiatrists prescribe medicine and their main method of treatment consists of medications and secondarily grossly disabling techniques including electroshock and lobotomy.
—All medications work upon principles of disabling and toxicity—
Psychologists use methods of behavioral treatments that operate upon principles of “sensitization” and “desensitization.”
There are many modalities of “talk therapy,” none of which may be considered “toxic” or “disabling”—except when psychologists serve to uphold The Medical Model and “reify” the diagnosis thus causing “iatrogenesis.”
Psychologists earn “real” doctoral degrees and are true scientists trained in the scientific method. In comparison psychiatrists earn “technical degrees” and are mere technicians.
Psychiatrists are “medical doctors” and are trained in understanding the risks and benefits of medications. The “medical doctor” or “MD” degree has existed for less than a century.
Psychologists are the original “doctors” and have “doctor of philosophy” degrees. The “Ph.D.” has four centuries of heritage.
“Iatrogenesis” is “physician caused illness” and is not limited to the practices of either psychiatrists or psychologists.
This question is much harder to answer and teasing out the history of liberalism is far more difficult than defining what “conservative” really means.
However, the essence of today’s “liberalism” in contrast & comparison to “conservatism” is that
Liberals are “deluded;”
Conservatives are “psychotic.”
The liberal delusion is
“Someone will give me something for nothing.”
And there are various derivatives off that theme of entitlement and
“Something for Nothing.”
But the cost of government sponsored or government provided services is VERY HIGH.
Consider that at the time of the advent of “The Great Society” and LBJ’s [President Johnson's] “War on Poverty,”
Americans were hopeful but we have learned a hard lesson.
There is more poverty today in America then there was when “The War of Poverty” began.
In the 1960’s a reliable estimate is that for every $1 in public services rendered Uncle Sam ate up $5!
That’s one helluva tax!
Alas, today the ratio is far worse. I estimate that for every $1 in public services delivered, Uncle Sam takes $19!
“Big Government” is “Big Business.”
The “hidden costs” are terrible!
For one, with the strong motivation of entitlement programs the toll on life quality and the toll on society are even greater.
For another, with the domination of The Medical Model on American Mental Health we’ve pretty much destroyed American health and American character.
So, which are you?
Are you deluded?
Or are you psychotic?
Perhaps the more important questions are:
Are conservatives or liberals more dangerous?
Are conservatives or liberals more effective in getting their message and agenda through?
My three level of fluoride poisoning need some explaining.
This is not the progress in an individual.
These are the levels of progression across time that a population experiences longitudinally–across time.
This is the framework.
We have seen a significant increase in heart disease & heart attacks in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.
Then the US has seen epidemic proportions of type II diabetes & obesity in the 80’s, 90’s and this decade.
We are now entering the tertiary period in which we seeing a raise in epidemic proportions of tumors, especially in our children–even pre-natalty!
However, there is a lot more to this. For instance, these three levels do not take into account the immediate and most times permanent effects of fluoride upon mental health, upon emotions and intellectual functioning. These happen much more instantly and are insipidus across the entire time a population is unnecessarily exposed to fluoridated water.
Come to think of it–
Might there be some necessity in the minds of someone or some group to use fluoride upon us so widely?

Earlier in Dr. Tennant’s contribution “Swine Flu –What Do I Do?” he recommended 20 minutes of sunning daily to build up Vitamin D and prevent the Swine Flu.
Well, here’s a video detailing the paradigm change coming from “rediscovering” Vitamin D and a down to earth explanation of how Vitamin D works in fighting disease.

While it is not technically correct per se to say that fluoride is the culprit and
It is more techically correct to say “fluoridated water,”
The purpose of Dr Kent’s Blog is to put it into the vernacular,
into common English.
According to two medical doctors who happen to be medical doctors of homeopathy:
Fluroidated water allows aluminum to cross the blood brain barrier
that would otherwise keep aluminum out of the brain.
This says it all–
We must act to take back America for the sake of our children.
