You may not know of this unique branch that is taunted and suppressed by the medical mafia. Orthomolecular psychiatry competes with Big Pharma’s grip on psychiatrists and other MDs who are not psychiatrists. Even worse, it is in the shadows of mainstream media and entertainment’s mass mind control conditioning of mental health.
Pharmaceutical psychiatric drugs are profitable and covered by private and public insurers. Supplements are not, but treating with them does require close scrutiny of patients by willing doctors who know nutritional details.
Conversely, psychiatric drug dispensers write prescriptions with their standard of care guidelines, cast by their bible the DSM-5 (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders – 5) protecting them from liability as they recklessly increase doses or add different toxic pharmaceuticals to one’s case, often with callous disregard.
Dr. Abraham Hoffer was the first psychiatrist to use natural remedies in the 1950s. His original focus was treating schizophrenics with mega-dose niacin and other nutrients. Dr. Humphrey Osmond was also involved with this early phase of natural treatments for the mentally disturbed.
Dr. Carl Pfeiffer was another pioneer who continued developing methods for determining causal factors of mental disorders ranging from ADHD and autism to bipolar conditions and schizophrenia. Pfeiffer created the Pfeiffer Treatment Center in Warrenville, Illinois.
The center is a non-profit organization that practices Pfeiffer’s law: “For every drug that benefits a patient, there is a natural substance that can achieve the same effect”. The clinic claims a cure rate of 85% without side effects. This clinic also serves as an ongoing research center for orthomolecular psychiatry.
To counteract mainstream psychiatry’s disdain and refusal to publish orthomolecular research findings, Abraham Hoffer created the The Journal for Orthomolecular Psychiatry which is now part of the Journal for Orthomolecular Medicine, where current orthomolecular research papers are published.
Some Examples of Toxic Causes and Natural CuresThough emotional trauma is often a factor, heavy metal toxicity, especially from mercury and lead, is part of the mental disorder puzzle.
The orthomolecular approach involves testing the patient’s biochemical composition to determine toxicity levels, extreme blood
Methylation is a process that determines proper balance in the brain’s biochemistry. Improper methylation manifests a toxic level of homocysteine in the blood. High dosing of B6, B12, and folate, the natural source of folic acid, added to the aforementioned nutritional approach has been used to remedy improper methylation.
Pyroluria is evidenced by a high volume of pyrroles or kryptopyrroles in the urine. This abundance of pyrroles is detected by simply adding Erhlich’s reagent to the urine. If the
Almost half of other psychiatric patients tested were positive, while a quarter of disturbed children tested registered high amounts of pyrroles as well. Dr. Pfeiffer and Dr. Arthur Sohleer of the Princeton Brain Bio Center discovered that high doses of zinc with B6 remedied this problem.
The pyrroles bind to the zinc and B6, become neutralized and are eliminated. It’s similar to chelating.
It has also been determined that allergies have a role in exacerbating mental problems. The usual culprits of wheat, especially gluten, pasteurized
When taken off those allergens, their conditions improved dramatically. They relapsed when they consumed the allergenic
Avoid Conventional ApproachesMainstream psychiatry’s approach resembles mainstream oncology: Cut (surgery), burn (radiation), and poison (chemotherapy). With psychiatry it’s been lobotomy (cut), electric shock therapy (burn) and toxic pharmaceuticals (poison).
As with alternative cancer cures, the basics of nutritional therapy or Orthomolecular psychiatry for mental disorders are worth investigating further.
