Scientists have not found common brain or functioning specific to schizophrenia, related disorders, or psychoses involving a breakdown of reality testing, such as hallucinations or delusions. In a condition called schizoaffective disorder, symptoms of both bipolar disorder and schizophrenia occur. Psychosis with schizophreniform symptoms occurs in many brain disorders, including dementia and delirium. Caution: adolescents who may be showing early signs of personality disorders, anxiety, and depression may be mistaken for early schizophrenic symptoms, resulting in inappropriate treatment. For someone experiencing psychotic episodes, psychiatrists usually prescribe the following drugs known as a second generation drugs: Risperdal, Zyprexa, Seroquel, Geodon, or Abilify. Giving a patient more than one antipsychotic drug at a time is not recommended. Of course it is ideal to intervene with natural remedies early while symptoms are mild and more readily yield to gentler treatment. Recommended Supplements: Neuro Complex, Brain Food, L-Glutamine and Multiple for Every Man and Multiple for Every Woman. If there is frequent catatonia, violent outbursts, delusions or hallucinations, add Neuro Balancer (take Neuro Balancer with food, separately from other supplements), Natural 5-HTP, and Neuro Relaxer (one or two capsules at bedtime). When symptoms improve and stabilize, add Brain Igniter (one capsule once a week). Brain Igniter, along with Brain Food, targets nerve receptors in the prefrontal cortex and hippocampus. Neuro Complex may prevent the slow tendency to cerebral cortex atrophy sometimes seen in those afflicted with schizophrenia. Some people may need a specifically formulated supplement protocol. Note: You don’t have to order all the supplements listed for each health condition. Start with the first one to three products, based on your needs. Take supplements for a minimum of one month (in severe cases longer) until relieved of the symptoms. Then take supplements on and off for maintenance.
