            "There is no evidence that any psychiatric or psychological disorder is caused by a biochemical 
              imbalance."

                 Our society has institutionalized drug abuse among our children. Worse yet, we abuse our children 
                     with drugs rather than making the effort to find better ways to meet their needs. In the long run, we 
                     are giving our children a very bad lesson--that drugs are the answer to emotional problems. We are
                     encouraging a generation of youngsters to grow up relying on psychiatric drugs rather than on 
                     themselves and other human resources.

ADHD:


Maybe the kids are bored or something is going on at home.  Maybe they need more attention than can be given to them.  What about asking them what is going on?  

I feel, on an energetic level, like some of these kids are very needy and they need more attention than most of us are able to give to them and that is difficult and draining for us. What can we do differently to help them or address their needs better as well as helping us to understand what they need and how to make it work for everyone?

Grief can be caused by a variety of life events, including: [see the site for more info]

OBSESSIVE-COMPULSIVE DISORDER:


                 …The same is true with someone who has been deeply shamed. That shame can
                develop into repetitive thoughts of guilt or obsessive-compulsive behaviors, all ways
                of controlling the shame. In fact, all obsessive-compulsive behaviors are just that –
                strategies developed by the mind to keep a person’s deeper feelings dissociated.

REACTIVE ATTACHMENT DISORDER:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ME2wmFunCjU            “Child of Rage – The Documentary (Part 1)” by Rivetingtalechap

                RAD arises from a failure to form normal attachments to primary caregivers in early childhood. This results from severe early 
                experiences of neglect, abuse, abrupt separation from caregivers (Beth’s mother passed away when Beth was one) between 
                the ages of six months and three years. It also results from a frequent change of caregivers, or a lack of caregiver responsiveness 
                to a child’s communicative efforts.

               
http://jl10ll.wordpress.com/2010/10/30/children-of-rage/

With extensive therapy and assistance Beth grew up to be a healthy young woman who is now a registered nurse and helping others. Severely abused and angry children can recover given the right kinds of help and assistance. Rehabilitation, love, support and teaching them self-esteem and skills are some of the answers.

SCHIZOPHRENIA:

                                  ...schizophrenia is a strategy for living in an unliveable situation.

                                                                                                                                            R.D. Laing


        The third day after her mercury-containing dental fillings were removed, she laughed and said, "It's not going to 
        get me. It's not going to be bad. “With time, everything improved. Her complexion cleared, the bloating de-creased, 
        and she felt connected to her body again. Her thyroid became normal, she no longer felt pain on menstruation, her 
        heart didn't hurt, and the schizophrenia was gone.

Peter R. Breggin, MD: How to Help Deeply Disturbed Persons—Fourth in the" Simple Truth

There are very, very good solutions to helping disturbed people, but they run counter to the drug companies, to the government programs, to organized medicine. We need the public to be demanding these things. [like Soteria House].

….

and they have a saying that schizophrenia exists between the members of the family and they [open diaglogues and caring, family-oriented] are so effective that they rarely use psychiatric drugs …. They have been so effective that the rate of schizophrenia is down to almost zero.

….

We are not ignorant about how to help people. …. But we need you, the public, to say “this is what we want, we want caring havens to go to when we are in desperation.”

For anyone being haunted, disturbed, nightmares, demonic attack, hallucinations, seeing things and other things that disturb one in the mind please note:

I found that for me, reading the Bible helped to keep me safe from those demons that would do me harm. God protected me but when they could get to me in my dreams and what I saw, then reading the Bible helped to put God’s word into my mind so that they could not influence me while I was reading. They could influence me if I was just lying there in bed but once I started reading they would go away. Keep reading if they don't go leave right away. I have had to do this for a few hours especially at the beginning when trying to escape the influence of the dark side. Don't give up and call on God and Christ for help as well.

The most memorable feature of his illness, though, was not the storm within his mind but the lull in his eyes. The word moni means “gem” in Bengali, but in common usage it also refers to something ineffably beautiful: the shining pinpricks of light in each eye. But this was precisely what was missing in Moni. The twin points of light in his eyes had dulled and nearly vanished, as if someone with a minute brush had painted them gray.

Study: MRI scans prove schizophrenic brains attempt self-repair

Now that the research team has found that brain tissue can indeed repair itself, even at a minimal rate, their next step is reportedly to continue regularly scanning the brains of patients with early schizophrenia.

"These findings are important not only because of their novelty and the rigor of the study, but because they point the way to the development of targeted treatments that potentially could better address some of the core pathology in schizophrenia," explains Dr. Jeffrey Reiss, another member of the research team from the London health Sciences Centre.
