Doctors talk about psych drugs and chemical imbalance

Below I share a compilation of texts and speeches by mental health professionals. It's for educational purposes only.

Psychiatric Times Psychotherapy perspectives in medication management by Simon Sobo, MD:
Axis I disorders are boldly portrayed as " chemical imbalances" in patient brochures, news articles and other educational materials.

The problem with this portrayal is that, while some day we may accumulate the knowledge to demonstrate the particulars of this perspective, no such chemical imbalances have been unequivocally demonstrated for any disorder. (...)

I would argue that there are certain psychological effects of medications that make them useful in a variety of DSM-IV -defined disorders not because they are necessarily correcting a chemical imbalance, but because the psychological effect is useful.
Psychotherapy Perspectives in Medication Management, by Simon Sobo, MD.

The psychiatrist Dr. Peter Breggin, in the video Peter Breggin, MD: Do You Have a Biochemical Imbalance? From 03:35 to 04:01:
Psychiatric drugs are causing biochemical imbalances in your brain. They get into the normal brain and they change it. Whether it's nicotine, which you're smoking, whether it's alcohol you're drinking, The drug is changing your brain. And that's why when you stop you get a withdrawal reaction. Because the drug has changed your brain.

The text of Dr. Simon Sobo, MD was mentioned in the video Truth About Antidepressants & Chemical Imbalance, Psychology, just as it's above, except that instead of saying "Axis I disorders" the person in the video said "Mental disorders", which means the same. Axis I disorders are mental disorders, contrasted to Axis II disorders, which are personality disorders.

We can conclude from all these texts that psychiatric drugs may be helpful in an emergency, but it may be VERY harmful in the long term. And no doubt it should be replaced by other options such as orthomolecular medicine. Why orthomolecular medicine? Because orthomolecular medicine is based in correcting the nutritional habits of the patient, by suggesting natural food to improve certain areas of health. It's up to us to fight for the inclusion of more treatments based on natural measures, such as orthomolecular medicine. The picture may change if orthomolecular studies be included in all courses of medicine.

Eu sempre publicarei todo tipo de opinião e ponto de vista. que NÃO INFRINJAM AS LEIS DO MUNDO, nem as leis da Internet.

Não são toleradas ofensas a nenhuma das pessoas que comentam.

Links para blogs e sites que falem de saúde mental são bem vindos, desde que não sejam sites criados para vender psicotrópicos.

As informações dispostas aqui são CONFIRMADAS através de várias fontes. A qualidade obtida aqui não se consegue da noite para o dia, mas sim de uma experiência de VÁRIOS ANOS.

Portanto, se houver algo a ser corrigido aqui, publique nos comentários, mas COM PROVAS, como eu faço.

Algumas pessoas, ao tomar medicações psiquiátricas ou drogas ilícitas, não sofrem efeitos adversos significativos (como vemos algumas pessoas que fumam a vida toda e morrem de velhice.) Portanto verei como normal algumas pessoas dizerem que nunca sentiram nenhum efeito colateral ao tomar determinado psicotrópico.

Mas qualquer indivíduo que escrever algo contra as informações técnicas mostradas aqui deve PROVAR IMEDIATAMENTE na mesma mensagem, do contrário terei que deletar.

Se quiser me contatar pode ser através de um comentário.

This web site is mostly about human rights, health, music and curious videos from Youtube. If you have any of these your contribution is most welcome.

Links to web sites that sell MEDICATION ARE UNWELCOME.

But if your site is interesting and useful just submit the address, WITHOUT ANY EXTRA ELECTRONIC LANGUAGE, such as HTML or the like. Example, http://pacientepsiquiatrico.com is OK, is accepted. But [url="http://pacientepsiquiatrico.com"] would be considered spam, because of the extra electronic language [url. I'll check it out and link to it if I approve it. Thank you
