No cure for schizophrenia?!? OR... ?
on October 10, 2011
In the book it says: There is no cure for schizophrenia. NO NO, we must never give up on these tormented fellow human beings. God is the greatest physician. Google for example: youtubevideo 'deliverance from mental disorder, testimony of mr dickson'(ill for 14 years). Or: 'Bipolar Disorder & Schizophrenia Healed'. Or: Schizophrenia no more! Testimony Of james stacey (ill for 26 years). Or 'Healed of schizophrenia.' There are lots more.
Men and women with schizophrenia usually cannot take action themselves to get delivered from this atrocious affliction. We can help them if we learn how to do deliverance, or get them to a place where they can be delivered.
Don't give them the death sentence by telling them they cannot be cured.
IN 2014 I ADD THIS TO MY REVIEW (and bring the stars down to only ONE star):
In June 2014 a friend gave me a link to an article "In Search of the Holy Grail: Natural Treatment of Schizophrenia" by Jonathan Campbell. It is a long article; I have made a summary for myself.
Now already around 2004 I had heard from a young man who had suffered, along with his girl friend, from schizophrenia. They had successfully overcome their symptoms by taking, daily, a lot of capsules with Omega 3 fish oil. He wrote about it on his weblog.
A friend of mine, who suffered from schizophrenia, could unfortunately not swallow the relatively large capsules of the oil. Squeezing them out for him turned out not doable in the long run.
THEN in 2005 I discovered liquid Omega 3 oil - in bottles! I had the opportunity to give my friend a daily sip from a bottle with liquid Omega 3 fish oil. I noticed how he gradually (very subtly) became rational and calm. After several months he said: "Now I don't need the Zyprexa anymore." How could I not agree with him?!? I had seen him improve! Alas, the circumstances became such that I could not continue giving him the oil.
Then in June 2014 a friend sent me the link to the article mentioned above. I HAD NOT KNOW BEFORE, THAT FROM 1977 ON MANY SCIENTIFIC RESEARCHERS HAD PROVEN THAT PERSONS SUFFERING FROM SCHIZOPHRENIA ACTUALLY SUFFER FROM A DEFICIENCY OF FATTY ACIDS!!!
With all this scientific back up I was so encouraged! I told my friend I had bought the oil again, I gave him a bottle for at home (but it is doubtful if he has the discipline to take take from the bottle daily); when he visits me I offer him the oil - he has never refused except when I had already given him fatty fish to eat.
Although he doesn't seem to take the oil daily, I do notice improvement already.
In July 2014 I discovered that one must take the oil for two to FOUR MONTHS before one notices effect. (I found this on the internet in the "directions for use" of another brand of the oil than which I had been using in 2005 and also now in 2014. I was able to retrace in my notes that, in 2005, my friend had been using the oil FOR FOUR MONTHS when he said: "Now I don't need the Zyprexa anymore." Amazing, isn't it?!
Note bene: In the article it says one shouldn't take too much of the oil, this can have a damaging effect.
Below two paragraphs from the article.
About twenty-eight years ago, a few researchers in brain cell membrane chemistry began to report new findings on the root causes of schizophrenia. In 1977, David Horrobin, who at that time was at the Clinical Research Institute and the University in Montreal, wrote what appears to have been the first short peer-reviewed paper on the connection between schizophrenia and the cell membrane, published in the British Medical Journal The Lancet. He hypothesized a root cause of schizophrenia having to do with defects in cell membrane chemistry, specifically a deficiency in chemicals called prostaglandins that are manufactured from essential fatty acids (Horrobin 1977, p 936).
Four years later Donald Rudin from the Eastern Pennsylvania Psychiatric Institute wrote a major journal article in Biological Psychiatry, in which he expanded upon this idea. He hypothesized that the major neuroses and psychoses were an "Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acid Deficiency Syndrome," a profound metabolic disturbance involving the creation of prostaglandins, that caused these mental illnesses as well as a physical skin disorder: pellagra (Rudin, 1981, p. 837). Rudin gave testimony of fairly dramatic results merely using flaxseed oil ("linseed oil") for twelve patients with serious mental disorders.
