You are right. Psychiatric drugs are very dangerous, and "chemical imbalance" is a fraud. Psychiatrists claim that a person “needs” a drug to combat their “chemical imbalance” in the brain which is causing a person's “mental disorder”. However, the concept that a brain-based, chemical imbalance underlies mental illness is false. While popularized by heavy public marketing, it is simply psychiatric wishful thinking. As with all of psychiatry's disease models, it has been thoroughly discredited by researchers. Diabetes is a biochemical imbalance. However, as Harvard psychiatrist Joseph Glenmullen states, “the definitive test and biochemical imbalance is a high blood sugar balance level. Treatment in severe cases is insulin injections, which restore sugar balance. The symptoms clear and retest shows the blood sugar is normal. Nothing like a sodium imbalance or blood sugar imbalance exists for depression or any other psychiatric syndrome.” In 1996, psychiatrist David Kaiser said, “...modern psychiatry has yet to convincingly prove the genetic/biologic cause of any single mental illness...Patients [have] been diagnosed with ‘chemical imbalances’ despite the fact that no test exists to support such a claim, and...there is no real conception of what a correct chemical balance would look like.” Answered by Beau Coriaty 2 years ago.
While some doctors may not fully understand a persons symptoms and quickly recommend a medication for treatment, they are not trying to hide anything. In fact, by treating a mental illness with a medication they are clearly indicating the presence of an illness and the need for psychotropic medication. Often times, a persons chemical imbalance prevents them from being able to see clearly and any other treatment would be useless. Once the medication has returned the brain to it's chemical balance, other treatment options can be considered. Answered by Anne Tagaban 2 years ago.
Mental disorders are chemical imbalances in the brain. Depending on the medication prescribed, it helps to levels out the chemicals that brain would normally produced on it's own. Experts don't hide the illness. They treat the illness with the necessary formulas of medications over a period of time and therapy is usually also recommended with the use of mental health medications. The eye doctor insists on contacts or glasses with bad eyesight and the physician insists on antibiotics for infections. Mental health is no different and in many cases it is inherited.

It's not hiding an illness, it is treating it. Many mental illnesses are caused by chemical imbalances in the brain and are best dealt with with medication. Therapy is also a recommended treatment for mental illness, it really helps having an unbiased individual to talk to. Answered by Zulma Tinajero 2 years ago.
Modern Western psychiatry is quite young compared to ancient wisdom healing traditions and ignores the spiritual and energetic aspects of the human journey. There is always some spiritual element to issues that psychiatry generally labels as 'psychopathology'. 'Transpersonal counselling' and 'energy work' are just two areas of therapy where an holistic perspective combines with new understandings from quantum physics.

Actually, alot of the time the medication is in the person's head. Only think it's working because it's what a doctor gave them. They've been doing this for so long now and truthfully, it works. Answered by Giselle Arzola 2 years ago.

Why does it feel like i have to pee even after i have just gone?
I think it might be either a UTI or a yeast infection but im not sure. help?
Asked by Season Bever 2 years ago.
It's a UTI. I get them every so often. I hate them. The only symptom i get is needing to pee, i don't get the others which can be burning when you pee or cloudy or blood tinged urine. You can get ural to drink, which is powder you mix with water or hiprex which is over the counter anti-biotics to help with it. Or go see a doctor if it's bad enough. Answered by Leeanne Hamff 2 years ago.
Maybe a UTI but I get this sometimes, have no idea why it can last up to half a day and I constantly need to pee even if I've just gone and if I don't go again I feel in gonna pee my knickers lol, but there's only ever a few drops. But yeah it only happens occasionally but it's never been serious. If it continues you can this drink stuff from a chemist for UTI I've seen my step mum use it.

Ive been on 45 mg to 60 mg of dexedrine for a year. I dont feel any negetive effects only positive. I love the drug, I perform better on it and it has gotten my life back on track (no impulses that lead to legal problems etc.) I am paranoid on longterm effects because i can see it being a lifetime drug because it is that helpful. Online ive read horror stories but it is never specified at what dose, if it is meth or all amphetamines, how it is administered, etc. I take mine purily medically. what am I looking at health wise? And as for snorting it, small dose wise in the mornings, does that scientifically greatly increase, these ill effects (I believe it would but my friend swears by it, as i said I use it as it is perscribed purily curiousity)? But yea my main point is taking it as perscribed, for a year plus more, what effects can it have on me? Answered by Adrien Hedden 2 years ago.
