Psychiatric drugs prevent healing. This seemingly audacious and “politically incorrect” assertion is supported by considerable evidence. In fact, the same drugs that purport to bring healing often cause long term health issues. If your desire is true, lasting healing, don’t count on psychiatric drugs.
If depression “runs in families”, it is at least partly genetic, as many claim. But greed, atheism, criminality and more can “run in families” as well, which raises many ethical issues and problems. Some scientists even claim there is a gene for spirituality. With eugenics as the origin of the “runs in the family” concept, reductionism and the now known complexity of genetic effects, the genetics of mental illness is seriously flawed.
Psychiatry claims that mental illness has a genetic basis. Schizophrenia is often cited as the best example of “behavioural genetics”. There are at least ten reasons why this is not possible. Yet this belief continues in the mental health profession as if it were fact and hence is actually a modern myth.
How valid are psychiatric diagnoses? Should you trust them and accept the influence they can have on your life? You might be surprised to discover that some prominent psychiatrists and researchers claim that these diagnoses are pseudo-scientific and problematic.
Jacqueline was diagnosed with bipolar disorder by three psychiatrists. She was on up to ten drugs, enduring their side effects, feeling increasingly hopeless and cutting herself. Through concentrated healing prayer, the causes of her deep emotional pain were revealed from her past. In Christ’s presence, she was totally healed. Chemical imbalance or any “problem with her brain” had nothing to do with her emotional suffering.
