VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Nov. 9, 2019 - PRLog -- It hits the head with the force of a 40-pound cinder block dropped seven and a half feet. It's been described by patients as a grenade going off in your body. It's called electroconvulsive therapy. And, despite what you might think, it's not an antiquated medical practice of some bygone era. In fact, ECT is inflicted on a million people worldwide. Every year.

In this gripping exposé, the $5.4 billion ECT business, its history, practitioners and devastating results are revealed in graphic detail.

We created Therapy or Torture not to upset you. Or to scare you. But instead, to move you. To put the hammer down on ECT.

ELECTROCONVULSIVE THERAPY, OR ECT, IS A procedure used by some psychiatrists in almost all psychiatric wards in British Columbia.  460 volts of electricity are sent coursing through the brain. Why? To produce a grand mal seizure they claim will "reset" or "reboot" the brain.This theory has never been proven. In fact, there is considerable evidence that ECT causes significant and irreversible brain damage. The human brain is a highly intricate organ, controlling the body with more than five trillion signals every second. It performs that feat with nearly eight times less than the power of a watch battery. But one ECT session assaults the brain with 2,300 times more electricity than it needs to function, leading to severe trauma.

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights was established by the Church of Scientology to investigate and expose psychiatric violations of human rights. To view the video or to report your own or another abuse case go to
