BREAKDOWN: Seven-part series in the Globe&Mail
Interesting series, here.
But we at Pharmaceuticals Anonymous think they've got it wrong: mental illness can be prevented and corrected with nutrition. Why bemoan stigma and the high costs of mental health treatment ($1,000,000+ over the lifetime of a
person diagnosed with "schizophrenia") when the truth is that the individual may have a vitamin deficiency, an infection or an allergy?
Why don't the "mentally ill" receive proper
physical work-ups before the Dx/Rx is written? We wonder - could it have something to do with jobs?
