Can psychiatric disorders be laid at the foot of a chemical imbalance in the brain as psychiatrists, and MDs, seem to propose? Disorders such as depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, or even schizophrenia? Do people, and now a growing number of pets, with these medical labels really need the psychiatric drugs? Do they help?
According to Peter Breggin MD, and many other distinguished psychiatrists, these drugs are not only neurotoxic, they do little to help people. In addition, there has been no scientific study that shows the idea of a chemical imbalance in the brain is a reality.
Smooth and reassuring talk by the prescriber may give the patient temporary reassurance, but does it help their condition? Does it stop them harming or killing themselves or others?
Since the drugs are neurotoxins, they can be the cause of behavioural disorders in those taking them, including violence, aggression, rage, even murder. Those taking them for any length of time find them very difficult to stop.
Causes of Mental Disorders
By the time a patient is medically labelled and treated, they are likely to have suffered for a long, long time. The medical industry offers little to help those suffering, who may be passed from pillar to post. Society in general also lacks understanding and support and can be unsympathetic.
A deep dive into the lives of those suffering can reveal a multitude of causes, each very individual. But some similarities can be drawn, which can offer very broad, but nevertheless, helpful strategies to adopt.
Very often, the start of behavioural disorders can be caused by a medical drug. Medical drugs never take into consideration the sensitivity of that individual. Instead they have a protocol, which is the same for everyone. When the first dose of a drug causes an adverse reaction, it’s a warning sign to tread carefully. This is rarely heeded.
So the second one builds on the first one. And so on. Eventually, the body can find no respite in functioning normally, so releases the tension in aggressive or reclusive behaviour.
To label that a chemical imbalance in the brain is trite, lacks understanding and is simplistic.
Diet is a major player in general health, including mental health. The consumption of fast food, processed food and animal protein is neither a natural diet for humans, nor a healthy one.
When people put the wrong fuel in their car, they don’t expect it to work well, if at all. Why then, is the same reasoning not applied to our fuel?
In an ideal world, parents would be unconditionally loving, supportive of the child’s growing independence and expression, with just a gentle guiding hand away from obvious dangers. Since most parents didn’t have that in their own childhood, it can be difficult for them to offer it to their children. It’s a domino effect.
Society likes to make everyone the same, so education can lack supportive measures for individual expression.
Children learn to adapt to their environmental conditions, in the best way they can. When they grow up and have more control over their lives, these adaptations may have become a habit, even though they are no longer necessary or even helpful.
Most of us muddle through our lives in a vaguely successful way. But sensitive or deeply damaged people can find that more difficult.
The first solution is to be absolutely certain that you don’t have a chemical imbalance in the brain. This is a myth that serves drug use only.
The second solution is to eat healthy food that is in keeping with what your body needs. T Colin Campbell, who has done extensive research on this subject, offers you beneficial ways to address this.
The third solution is just as important as the first two, because it is highly likely you will need ongoing support. Good homeopathic health care can give you the fastest and the easiest way to restore your original self, the self you came here to be. It can help release you from the toxins, release you from the habits that no longer serve you, release you from the grip of neurotoxic and damaging drugs.
