  • I’m not sure where I read this Steve, but recall reading that in developing countries, parts of Africa for example, where medication was unavailable, that full recovery from ‘schizophrenia’ was at 60%. There is also the work of Carl Pfeiffer and Abram Hoffer to think about….. Their research/work seemed to falter with the introduction of antipsychotics by the drug companies.
    Chlorpromazine in the 50s?
    I had the pleasure of hearing Jaakku Seikkula in UK a few years ago. [Open Dialogue] Fascinating.
    And this makes interesting reading!
    There’s more than one way to ‘skin a cat’.

  • I don’t know too much about metabolic syndrome or dysfunction in metabolic pathways , but I hope our family experience might be of interest to readers/researchers. In recent years my husband had been showing very gradual progression into dementia. Eighteen months ago he, in error, took my adult son’s morning meds [Two antipsychotics – laid out in another room.] He ended up in hospital for a month and in the interim lost 40 years of memory. Wham, bang – overnight. I had hoped that as toxins cleared from his body/brain that the memory loss would improve, but that has not happened. Some part of his brain has been catastrophically, permanently damaged – with one dose of psychiatric drugs. The hippocampus? It’s terrifying the damage these drugs can cause – but I think it’s fairly clear that damage can include dementia!

  • You have my total respect Dr Gordon. And that of many others be assured! It takes a great deal of courage to stand up against the opinon of colleagues and members of your own profession. You have chosen the side of truth, and the side of patients who feel or know they have been damaged [albeit unwittingly] by that profession. It is so frustrating for patients to be scorned and ridiculed by psychiatry, for daring to point an accusing finger at the treatments which have caused that damage. I hope many feel vindicated by your stance. I do. Thank you.
    Wishing you continued strength.

  • Dear Dorrit
    Thank you so much for telling your daughter’s story yet again. And I hope you continue to tell it – over and over and over till the corrupt, power-hungry profession responsible for taking her life, can find no hiding place.
    So much research is now coming out showing up all the shortcomings and clay feet of diagnoses of lifelong conditions, and lifelong damaging treatment for these ‘conditions’, forced upon unwilling patients. One wonders what happens in the minds of these professionals when they read articles showing how psychiatric drugs cause permanent damage and even death – when they read what happened to Luise. Do they feel guilt? Shame? Panic? Fear?
    Love and blessings to you Dorrit – and Luise.
