| IMO, and in the opinion of many people, this thing
called schizophrenia is an end result and the culmination
of repeated assaults on a compromised immune system.
In other words repeated assaults on the bodies immunity results
in several different physical maladies to operate together.
Depleted cortisol affects the ability to handle stress
until the brain finally puts up the white flag and snaps into
delusion and hallucination.
What DIRECTLY causes delusions and hallucinations?
Cerebrospinal fluids press against grey matter causing
it to malfunction partially turning off a persons ability
to form critical judgments. This causes the person in delusion
not to know that they are in delusion.
Anti-psych meds might work by reducing pressure on grey matter
resulting in less distortion of reality.
IMO you will never find a cure for a SYSTEMIC condition
like schizophrenia by treating it solely as a mental illness.
Orthomolecular medicine is not the big solution it's
practitioners claim. The only solution is to slowly
address immune problems one by one.
