            Schizophrenia is a fairly common mental illness today.  It is characterized by hallucinations, delusions, low affect and perhaps other symptoms. 




            Among the most common causes, in our experience, are a high copper level and perhaps a high mercury level.  Other toxic metals may play a role.  Toxic metals such as cadmium, lead and others may interfere with zinc, for example, contributing to schizophrenic symptoms.

            Another cause is Yin Disease.  This is an excessive amount of yin energy in the body, usually due to a diet that is excessive in sugars, others sweets, raw food, drugs, perhaps and other more yin substances.  Copper is also a yin substance.




            So far, in a limited number of cases, we have seen excellent results with a development program in cases of schizophrenia.  The program removes two dozen toxic metals, remineralizes the body and improves energy and well-being.




The orthomolecular psychology approach.  With this program, one takes a few supplements such as zinc, vitamin B6, and vitamin C.  These can lower copper and correct a few other imbalances.  However, this approach does not fundamentally rebuild and balance the body, as does a development program. It is a more symptomatic approach and one must continue taking the supplements indefinitely.

In contrast, with a development program, one does not stay on the supplements for years and years because the idea is to correct the cause of the problem at a deeper level. 




Some cases of schizophrenia we call a tuning disorder.  This basically means that the brain does not tune properly to this world, and instead seems to tune in or be present in unusual ways.  As a result, the person can hear and see things that others do not see or hear.  The concept of tuning disorders is explained fully in the book Nutritional Balancing and Hair Mineral Analysis (2010 edition).
