Treatment vs Cures

I recently watched a documentary on the history of psychiatry.

In the movie they asked many psychiatric professionals if they had ever cured a patient. Clear and across the board- “there are no cures”. No one has ever been “cured” by psychiatry. If I had never healed anyone as a psychic I would hang my head in shame and become a beautician or something. I certainly would not continue to take clients I knew I could not heal.

What is treatment for if not to help along an eventual cure? Was I “programmed”  incorrectly? As a society don’t we all think of Doctors as Healers? Does “Doctors are Healers” only become  inaccurate when speaking about the field of psychiatry? Who made psychiatry the neo god of pill prescriptions anyway? If you are not on drugs in America, I bet you know people who are. Think about how many people you know on drugs. Now compare that statistic to what it may have been only 50 years ago. “Vally of the Dolls” or “1984” – you tell me.

The psychiatrist admit openly there is NO (listen now!) There is NO chemical test to “test” for a chemical imbalance in the brain. NO TEST can tell you that you are bi-polar, adhd, manic, a sociopath… NO TEST.

So why all the brain scans, how come they tell me I need to take the drugs because I am chemically imbalanced? Hmm Good Questions even a Greek philosopher would want ANSWERS too :).

Personally I have made a choice to care for myself in holistic and natural ways. I will accept medical treatment if I have too, however I will not seek it.

I am undertaking the practice of listening to my body, mind, heart and spirit in deeper and clearer ways. I am trusting my guides when making spontaneous  choices about diet and exercise. When I am asked to go for a walk- I say yes regardless of how I feel about it personally :). My goal with diet is to eat more spice, less red meat, and “happy food” which is organic without chemicals. The fake sugar seems to be an issue for me- any suggestions on an alternative?

I am working on my finances to afford this decadent “health” food. Having to work harder so I can eat better reminds me of the movie “Soylent Green”… if you’ve seen it you know what I mean.

I feel as an uninsured American I have no choice but to revert to the “old ways” of being healthy. Exercise, eat well, make love, laugh, express, explore and pray. Sounds like a good plan to me.

How do you feel about these subjects- and why? Comment below.
