I am happy, my patient of “schizophrenia” goes to work
I am happy today. A schizophrenic man “recovered” (his word) has gone back to Bombay to work. He works in TV industry. He is an actor. He had stopped psychiatric drugs on his own except one drug. He approached me to stop this psychiatric drug and to stop his remaining symptoms. The remaining symptoms were insomnia and fear that he may be a homosexual and that people in restaurants and the workers there look at him and smile (at him) as if they know he is a homosexual. These were not just ideas of reference but he actually perceived the smiles although when cross checked by his companion his allegation that the restaurant workers smiled was not found valid. I had asked him to take a companion from his family to restaurants to cross check on his idea. When I pointedly asked him if he thought (that the restaurant workers smile at him) or he perceived their smiles, he specifically said he sees them smiling at him, that they know he is a homosexual and this then triggered his fear that he is a homosexual.
He was a hard case but highly motivated to recover. He would call upon me about 10 times daily because of his anxiety. I was very stressed and had blocked his calls. Anyway thankfully that is now history.
What I did is a long story . But few points are as below.
#1. I did not (and never) use any prescription (psychiatric ) medicine.
#2. Of course used vitamins and minerals based on blood tests. Chief among them was niacin.
#3. Used diet manipulations based on home based tests of foods and path lab report.
Details I will report of such cases in formal way in some technical refereed journal.
