What is Schizophrenia?
Schizophrenia is a mental disorder that usually becomes apparent in late adolescence or early adulthood. It is characterized by delusions, hallucinations, and other cognitive difficulties. Due to these factors schizophrenia can often be a lifelong struggle.
Medical reports suggest that at least 1% of the world’s population is suffering from schizophrenia.
How do I identify schizophrenia?
The greatest problem with diagnosis of schizophrenia is that patients are misdiagnosed with depression, anxiety and OCD. Our research shows that a patient ordinarily contacts schizophrenia between the ages of 16 to 30. It is easier to recognise the symptoms of schizophrenia in male patients compared to females. Another thing to note is that schizophrenia escalates into a serious issue over a long period of time. If left untreated the patient will slip further into their delusions and over time, completely lose touch with reality. In the rare cases of shock or trauma, schizophrenia may develop quickly.
What are the symptoms of schizophrenia?
Many patients suffering from schizophrenia are not properly diagnosed because they refuse to understand that they are in need of treatment. Patients argue that there is nothing wrong with them and that they are of a sound and capable mind.
Many patients may appear normal and functional human beings on the surface, however, when we start to understand the inner workings of their minds, the disease becomes apparent.
- Patients from Schizophrenia Face the following symptoms
- Delusions and Hallucinations
- Loss of Facial Expression
- Lack of Motivation
- Poor Concentration
- Poor emotional sensitivity
- No desire to improve the quality of life
Are medicines harmful for treating Schizophrenia?
The role of the medicine is only to control the disease, and they allow the patient to be senseless. A patient undergoing heavy drug dosage is quiet and suppressed.
Psychological illness means disturbance of the mind, there is no role of medicines in psychological distress, the purpose of the medication is to make the patient sleep. Doctors give patients sleeping tablets to make their veins weaker.
Family members of these patients experience some benefits from such medicines: By giving medicines to patients that the patient remains calm for the duration of the medication, they live unconsciously and do not perform any violence,thanks to the medicine, that the patient’s anger and violent tendencies are controlled. So family members believe that the patient is recovering, and the patients are forced to live in a mindless trance.
Medicines that are given to patients develop deep-rooted drug dependencies. And like drug addicts these patients lose control with reality when they consume these medicines.
Can a Patient diagnosed with Schizophrenia be Cured?
Through our treatment we are 100% confident that such patients can be cured. However, It takes time and a lot of cooperation from the patient and the family.
It is my understanding that none of the psychiatrists and family members have ever taken the medicines like antipsychotics, and if they ever experience the side effects of the medicines, they would never give these medicines to the patients.
It is not that we are completely against medication, if the patient is suffering from extreme mental disturbance, sleeping medicines are most effective at suppressing the tantrum at that point.
Causes for Schizophrenia
The main cause of this disease is an unstable family life. This disease takes root in the innocent and weak member of the family who is not able to come to terms with the emotional conflict in the family. As such it is necessary that the treatment involves all the members of the family. Even if the patient is helped in his situation, if the family condition does not improve, the patient’s condition will only deteriorate after treatment.
