Herbs and Schizophrenia

PERMANENT CURE TO SCHIZOPHRENIA



Schizophrenia is a serious/severe mental disorder often characterized by abnormal social behavior and failure to recognize what is real. Schizophrenia affects about 1% of the world population. Common symptoms include false beliefs, unclear or confused thinking, auditory hallucinations, reduced social engagement and emotional expression, and lack of motivation. Someone with schizophrenia may have difficulty distinguishing between what is real and what is imaginary; may be unresponsive or withdrawn; and may have difficulty expressing normal emotions in social situations. Contrary to public perception, People with schizophrenia do not have split personalities. Multiple personality disorder is a different and much less common disorder than schizophrenia.  Rather, they are “split off” from reality. The vast majority of people with schizophrenia are not violent and do not pose a danger to others. Schizophrenia is not caused by childhood experiences, poor parenting or lack of willpower, nor are the symptoms identical for each person. There are also lots of misconceptions about schizophrenia, [like that] patients are truly wild. In fact, of all the major mental illnesses, they're the least violent. People can't hold jobs, certainly not high-powered jobs...Can't have close friends and family. Can't live independently. A lot of those have some truth; they're true of a certain portion of people with schizophrenia. But it seems to me that a lot more than is now the case could be leading far more gratifying and symptom-free lives. 

What Causes Schizophrenia?

The cause of schizophrenia is still unclear. The truth is, doctors don’t really know what causes this mental illness. Some theories about the cause of this disease include: genetics (heredity), biology (abnormalities in the brain’s chemistry or structure); and/or possible viral infections and immune disorders. Some recreational and prescription drugs appear to cause or worsen symptoms. 


Genetics (Heredity)

Think of your genes as a blueprint for your body. If there’s a change to these instructions, it can sometimes increase your odds for developing schizophrenia. You’re more likely to get schizophrenia if someone in your family has it. If it’s a parent, brother, or sister, your chances go up by 10%. If both your parents have it, you have a 40% chance of getting it, too. Your chances are greatest -- 50% -- if you have an identical twin with the disorder. So, it is belief that the disorder tends to run in families and that a person inherits a tendency to develop the disease. But some people about --60%-- with schizophrenia have no history of it in their family.

Environmental

Schizophrenia may also be triggered by environmental events, such as viral infections or highly stressful situations or a combination of both e.g. If you were exposed to certain viral infections before you were born or low oxygen levels during birth (from prolonged labor or premature birth) your chances of getting schizophrenia are higher. This may also be true if you didn’t get proper nutrition (malnutrition) from your mom while she was pregnant with you, especially during her first six months of pregnancy or exposure to toxins or viruses that may impact brain development, Early parental loss or separation, Physical or sexual abuse in childhood. Schizophrenia appears when the body undergoes hormonal and physical changes, like those that occur during puberty in the teen and young adult years or after dealing with highly stressful situations.


Biology

Chemistry - People with schizophrenia have a chemical imbalance of brain chemicals (serotonin, glutamate and dopamine) which are neurotransmitters. These neurotransmitters allow nerve cells in the brain to send messages to each other.These are responsible for “communicating information” in the brain. The imbalance of these chemicals affects the way a person’s brain reacts to stimuli--which explains why a person with schizophrenia may be overwhelmed by sensory information (loud music or bright lights) which other people can easily handle. This problem in processing different sounds, sights, smells and tastes can also lead to hallucinations or delusions. 

Structure - The development of connections and pathways in the brain while in the womb may later lead to schizophrenia.

Symptoms

Schizophrenia involves a range of problems with thinking (cognition), behavior or emotions. Signs and symptoms may vary, but usually involve delusions, hallucinations or disorganized speech, and reflect an impaired ability to function. Symptoms may include:

Delusions

A delusion is a firmly-held idea that a person has despite clear and obvious evidence that it isn’t true. Delusions are extremely common in schizophrenia, occurring in more than 90% of those who have the disorder. Often, these delusions involve illogical or bizarre ideas or fantasies. Common schizophrenic delusions include: 
Delusions of persecution – Belief that others, often a vague “they,” are out to get him or her. These persecutory delusions often involve bizarre ideas and plots (e.g. “My Mom is trying to poison me with radioactive particles delivered through my tap water”). These are false beliefs that are not based in reality. 
Delusions of reference – A neutral environmental event is believed to have a special and personal meaning. For example, a person with schizophrenia might believe a billboard or a person on TV is sending a message meant specifically for them. Delusions occur in most people with schizophrenia.
Delusions of grandeur – Belief that one is a famous or important figure, such Napoleon. Alternately, delusions of grandeur may involve the belief that one has unusual powers that no one else has (e.g. the ability to fly).
Delusions of control – Belief that one’s thoughts or actions are being controlled by outside, alien forces. Common delusions of control include thought broadcasting 


Hallucinations

These are sounds or other sensations experienced as real when they exist only in the person's mind. This usually involve seeing or hearing things that don't exist. Yet for the person with schizophrenia, they have the full force and impact of a normal experience. Hallucinations can be in any of the senses (any of the five senses), but hearing voices is the most common hallucination. Schizophrenic hallucinations are usually meaningful to the person experiencing them. Many times, the voices are those of someone they know. Most commonly, the voices are critical, vulgar, or abusive. Hallucinations also tend to be worse when the person is alone.

Disorganized thinking (speech)

Disorganized thinking is inferred from disorganized speech. Fragmented thinking is characteristic of schizophrenia. Externally, it can be observed in the way a person speaks. People with schizophrenia tend to have trouble concentrating and maintaining a train of thought. They may respond to queries with an completely unrelated answer, start sentences with one topic and end somewhere completely different, speak incoherently, or say illogical things. Rarely, speech may include putting together 
meaningless words that can't be understood, sometimes known as word salad.

Disorganized behavior

Extremely disorganized or abnormal motor behavior. This may show in a number of ways, from childlike silliness to unpredictable agitation. Behavior isn't focused on a goal, so it's hard to do tasks. Behavior can include A decline in overall daily functioning (resistance to instructions), inappropriate or bizarre posture, useless and excessive movement,  Unpredictable or inappropriate emotional responses

Negative symptoms. 

The Negative symptoms of schizophrenia refer to the absence of normal behaviors found in healthy individuals. In another word, it refers to reduced or lack of ability to function normally. For example, the person may neglect personal hygiene or Lack of emotional expression - Inexpressive face, including a flat voice, lack of eye contact, and blank or restricted facial expressions. Lack of interest or enthusiasm – Problems with motivation; lack of self-care in everyday activities
Seeming lack of interest in the world – Apparent unawareness of the environment; social withdrawal.
Speech difficulties and abnormalities – Inability to carry a conversation; short and sometimes disconnected replies to questions; speaking in monotone.

In men, schizophrenia symptoms typically start in the early to mid-20s. In women, symptoms typically begin in the late 20s. It's uncommon for children to be diagnosed with schizophrenia and rare for those older than age 45.

Symptoms in teenagers

Schizophrenia symptoms in teenagers are similar to those in adults, but the condition may be more difficult to recognize. This may be in part because some of the early symptoms of schizophrenia in teenagers are common for typical development during teen years, such as:

Withdrawal from friends and family
A drop in performance at school
Trouble sleeping
Irritability or depressed mood
Lack of motivation

Complications

Left untreated, schizophrenia can result in severe problems that affect every area of life. Complications that schizophrenia may cause or be associated with include:

Suicide: Suicidal thoughts and behavior are common among people with schizophrenia. Which is why If you have a loved one who is in danger of attempting suicide or has made a suicide attempt, make sure someone stays with that person. Any suicidal talk, threats, or gestures should be taken very seriously. People with schizophrenia are especially likely to commit suicide during psychotic episodes, during periods of depression, and in the first six months after they’ve started treatment.

Relationship problems. Relationships suffer because people with schizophrenia often withdraw and isolate themselves. Paranoia can also cause a person with schizophrenia to be suspicious of friends and family.

Disruption to normal daily activities. Schizophrenia causes significant disruptions to daily functioning, both because of social difficulties and because everyday tasks become hard, if not impossible to do. A schizophrenic person’s delusions, hallucinations, and disorganized thoughts typically prevent him or her from doing normal things like bathing, eating, or running errands.

Depression: This is also frequently occurring symptom in schizophrenia, is major depressive disorder, is a mental health condition marked by an extended sense of sadness and despair that affects how a person thinks, feels and functions. The condition may significantly interfere with a person's daily life and may prompt thoughts of suicide. Depression isn't the same as sadness and grief caused by a challenging life experience, such as the death of a loved one.There are many causes of depression, some resulting from abnormal brain chemistry, while others are associated with low blood pressure, low thyroid, low blood sugar or low (or high) levels of various essential nutrients such as calcium, copper, lithium, magnesium, manganese, sodium, tin, protein, vitamin B1, vitamin B6, vitamin B10, vitamin B12  and others.

Abuse of alcohol or other drugs, including tobacco: People with schizophrenia frequently develop problems with alcohol or drugs, which are often used in an attempt to self-medicate, or relieve symptoms. In addition, they may also be heavy smokers, a complicating situation as cigarette smoke can interfere with the effectiveness of medications prescribed for the disorder.

Others may include the following but not limited to:
Anxiety disorders and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
Self-injury
Inability to work or attend school
Legal and financial problems and homelessness
Social isolation
Health and medical problems
Being victimized
Aggressive behavior, although it's uncommon

Anti-psychotic drugs and their debilitating side effect


More than two million people in the United States have a diagnosis of schizophrenia, and thetreatment for most of them mainly involves strong doses of anti-psychotic drugs that blunt hallucinations and delusions that come with unbearable side effects, like severe weight gain or debilitating tremors. Anti-psychotic medications (in general) [sertralina Litio, Ziprexa, Seroquel, Haldol, Sinogan, Olanzapina, Risperidona, Amparax]  have been available since the mid-1950s, Anti-psychotic does not “cure” schizophrenia. They may greatly improved the outlook for individual patients. The large majority of people with schizophrenia show substantial improvement when treated with anti-psychotic drugs. Some patients, however, are not helped very much by the medications and a few do not seem to need them. Antipsychotic drugs are thought to act in schizophrenia by blocking dopaminergic receptors, thereby interfering with dopaminergic transmission. There is, however, growing evidence to suggest that typical antipsychotics also affect other neurotransmitter systems such as the cholinergic (muscarinic), alfa-adrenergic, histaminergic and serotonergic mechanisms. Typical antipsychotics are, therefore, essentially pharmacologically 'dirty' drugs and their use may consequently increase the risk of a wide variety of undesirable side-effects.  For example, their anticholinergic side-effects include dry mouth, urinary hesitancy (and even retention), constipation and visual disturbance, while their effects on noradrenergic mechanisms lead to postural hypotension, disturbances of sexual functions and nasal congestion. As a consequence of their antihistaminic action, many of these compounds are sedative. Furthermore, their prolonged use may lead to weight gain. Interference with dopaminergic transmission can lead to both endocrinological side-effects such as hyperprolactinaemia, which may manifest itself as galactorrhoea, amenorrhoea and gynaecomastia, and extrapyramidal side-effects. Which explain why there side effect like stiffness and shakiness, uncomfortable restlessness (akathisia), movements of the jaw, lips and tongue, sexual problems due to hormonal changes, sleepiness and slowness, severe weight gain, a higher risk of getting diabetes, and alot more. Virtually, all antipsychotic medications have side effects.
A long-term study of 33 patients with schizophrenia, along with 71 control subjects for comparison, confirmed that those taking anti-psychotic drugs lost brain volume more quickly than average through the aging process. Whereas study subjects in the control group lost brain volume at a rate of 0.5 percent per year over a nine-year period, patients treated with anti-psychotic drugs for schizophrenia lost 0.7 percent per year — consistent with the average cognitive aging process for someone aged 34 to 43

OUR HERBAL MEDICINE 

Yes, The good news is that there is 100% permanent cure to Schizophrenia using our herbal remedy. Schizophrenia can be effectively and permanently be cured with our herbal regimen mode of treatment provided all protocols are followed within the period of 16months. Herbs have been around for millennia. Herbs are a great source of medicine even for life threatening diseases. In fact, our natural remedies medicine is safer and also better compatibility to humans as it has no side effect (The golden fact is use of herbal treatments is independent of any age groups). It is Non-psychoactive and would be taken with instruction. It is called CONSUMMO. Consummo is  made purely out of different herbs extract (Ginkgo, Moringa, 1. & 2. Periwinkle & Ginseng, Smelling Rosemary,  Achyranthes aspera or Prickly chaff flower, Neem and Purslane), these extract are non-alcohol base which is why our herbal medicine are far effective than other. While most commercially available extracts are made with an alcohol base, we make use of other type of solvents- vinegar — to absorb the flavors of our herbs. These solvents and the extracts made from them are safe to consume for those who want to avoid alcohol in their diets.  Positive results will be obvious within the second month. Consummo work to neuroprotective and neurorecovery effects against midbrain dopamine neuron damage and even damage to locomotion. It work to calm nerves, improve mood, and aid sleep (a major cause of sleep disturbance for many individuals. Without a good night’s sleep, mental acuity becomes compromised and memory also degrades), it also help reduce anxiety and protect brain function. It support cardiovascular health and a healthier brain. It improve memory, reduce stress, and support cognitive function. it support the physical health of brain cells and offer some protection against brain aging and age-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease . It is also a biochemical precursor to several neurotransmitters. One of those neurotransmitters is dopamine, and increasing dopamine levels. When there is a deficiency (shortage) in dopamine in the brain, movements may become delayed and uncoordinated, On the flip side, if there is an excess of dopamine, the brain causes the body to make unnecessary movements, such as repetitive tics. Consummo works to regulate the dopamine level (Either increasing/decreasing). In this case it will prevent the victim from experiencing hallucinations (such as hearing voices), delusions (having ideas not based on reality), Thought disorder and Extreme mood swings.
It also improve brain function and support memory. It also discourage inflammation and suggest protective effects for neurons. It also supporting relaxation.
It stimulate the brain to maintain a state of alertness and also improves mental capabilities in Brain. It help transmits nerve impulses to the brain. It helps overcome depression; increases mental alertness; promotes the healthy functioning of the thyroid, adrenal, and pituitary glands. It is also a building block for several neurotransmitters. It produces the chemical needed to transmit signals between nerve cells and the brain. It can help with concentration, reduce hunger pains. It also Help Your Brain Grow through a  process called neurogenesis, new brain cells are constantly being created, which remove the symptoms of Schizophrenia. It protect The Brain From Chronic/constant Stress, Stress is also one of the most common causes of anxiety and depression,. It alleviates insomnia.
It improve brain functioning in the sense that it reduces the enlarged ventricles in the brain and It is important for energy in muscle tissue, brain, and central nervous system. It strengthens the immune system by producing antibodies that help in covering the enlarged ventricles in the brain

Mikky's Testimony

 ON BEHALF OF MY SISTER

My sister, Isabella aged about 28 years, suffering from Schizophrenia and using English medicines since a decade..not continuously..on and Off. Her situation was too worst and we were unable to manage her at home, we keep her on rehabilitation center and using English medicine and situation and condition didn’t recovered. We have used English medicines both here in my country and abroad, it’s not been improved. She had used all the English medications which include Zyprexa, or resiprodine, Quitipine and other anti-psychosis medicines. For 2 days she will be fine and the next day, she talks rubbish with loud noise, she always says she want to die. She talks all past negative things happen in her life with loud and abnormal voice. She shouts people and beat sometimes, run on the roads... This has happened for 10 to 12 years, some time she is fine...again suddenly her behavior changes.. We were literary at the end of the rope when I stumbled upon “ Scarlett Story”. She had also had same experience as Isabella and the best thing about her was that after her using Consummo she was cure of schizophrenia. Scarlett’s story was very inspiring; she was the perfect person for us that time. We decided to consult Dr. Justin. In the first visit itself, my view towards the schizophrenia has completely changed. All of our doubts regarding herbal medicine changed as we do not believe in natural medicine. After more than a decade, we were seeing some ray of hope for Isabella situation. We had someone with whom we could easily share and discuss all our worries and problems. Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore. We made an order and started giving her the medicine daily. There has not been a single occurrence of the symptoms since then, he also gave her permission to do anything she never done. I think that was the most beautiful moment in our life in last 9 years. I could see the loads of happiness on Isabella’s face. Her confidence level was boosted like never before. Isabella has started staying with me now. Initially, it was very difficult. I used to call her to check if she is ok and safe. But on the other hand Isabella was completely enjoying her new life. Slowly, we reduced the phone calls and gave her independence. I specially commend Justin for his extraordinary work in the field of medicine and his excellent discovery to fight this terrible disease.

Consummo Works

Overcoming Mental Illness with Consummo

I’d like to tell a story -- in the hope that it will be useful to others -- of my struggles and achievements with schizophrenia. I can’t speak for everyone about Consummo. I can’t guarantee that this will work for you. But I suggest you try it. It has done wonders for me

I was diagnosed with schizophrenia for 19 odd years, it all began in 1991. I had occasional visual hallucinations; I experienced sounds (hearing voices), visions, and smells that were not there; others are paranoia, jumbled thoughts and catatonia (being unable to respond to others); The effects was so devastating that I was told by doctors — that I may never lead independent lives, find partners or hold down stable jobs. It was very difficult accepting this; I was hospitalized several times with no much improvement (sometime five hospitalizations that year alone).

Over the years since I became ill; my mum used to tells me how much she loves me, and I know she does, as I love her too; like many families in similar circumstances, lived with the anguish and frustration of trying to protect a loved one with schizophrenia, often from himself. I refused or abandoned treatment, due to side effects and ineffectiveness, and denying that there was anything wrong with me. What medications he did take rarely worked, or not for long. I thought: there had to be a better way as antipsychotic medicine comes with a plethora of side effects with little or no improvement.

So I kept searching, and in my searches I stumbled across a website where Consummo was being praised for its effectiveness
After few weeks of using Consummo, though I still experience some symptoms for about a month, they number far fewer than I used to. My typical day is spent anchored in reality, with mild thought disturbances that I have learned to blow off. When I get delusional, the delusions last a matter of a second or two -- to the point where they simply don’t affect my life anymore. 

My experience with this form of treatment (herbal medicine) has been so successful that when I told a Psychiatrist on my hockey team about my diagnosis and how Consummo has helped, he flat out and didn’t believe me. I watched as the symptoms began to disappear completely from my life. I was no longer paranoid about my job because I understood that emotionally my boss likes the work I do and assures that I am doing a good job. I learned to understand that socializing is a way of killing free time -- and it’s much more enjoyable when you do things with others. In summary, I have overcome this disorder without conventional medications and the side effects that the drugs cause

Avigail's Story

MY TESTIMONY


I am 47 years old, I live in UK. I don't have any symptoms while I am taking my medicine, Risperidone 3 mg. I have taken it many years but the side effect are just too much, before that I had Zyprexa but I got an allergy from that so I had to change. I have been taking medicine since I got a psychosis eight years ago. Two times I stopped taking the medicine and every time the symptoms slowly returned in a few weeks. The symptoms I get is delusions, imperative voices telling me to do horrible things, horrible pictures in my mind (don't know if that is hallucinations?)There were not many symptoms, just a few, but it was enough to take away the joy in my life. Every time I left the my M.D’s office, I felt discouraged knowing that I would probably remain on medication with side effect for the rest of my life, and this that left me feeling exhausted and prevented me from participating in originally planned activities. I couldn’t function. There is no schizophrenia in my family that I know of. There was just one incident with my mother's sister who committed suicide at the age of 20, but nobody knows if she had psychosis. I think it is a wrong idea which I got perhaps eight nine years back. It was all from a spiritual experience which I don't understand. I woke up exactly at three o'clock several nights in a row, and then I was in the universe, one with all the stars, I was the universe, that primordial power. It was frightening and lonely and I tried to put the arm over my eyes, but still it came back every night. When it stopped I went up from bed, it was completely dark in the room but I knew exactly where the handle was. I went in the bathroom and looked at my face in the mirror, then all the wrinkles around my eyes disappeared in front of my eyes. Same thing happened every night. It was a strong experience and after that I believed that my soul was divine. Not that my personality was perfect, but that I was going to become that in my lifetime. With this idea in my mind I was vulnerable for negative forces, telling me that some people were bad and some were divine, and so on. These negative forces are the symptoms. The negative forces have most of all attacked my relationship with my children, and I still feel sometimes obstructions in my love for my daughter. (to loose that love is one of my deepest fears). I couldn't sleep without a very small dose of sleeping pills, Imovane. So it was this idea of being divine that triggers the symptoms, I believe. Thanks to Dr. Justin Rodwen Hill and his product (Consummo), for his timely intervention of his product, excellent counseling, support from my family and some prayer, I now consider myself a most fortunate “schizophrenia survivor.” I find hope in the darkest of days when I saw a testimony of people talking about Consummo on many blogs and how it has helped their loved ones. Is this a Miracle medicine or what? I started having series of thought; thereafter I ordered his product and started using it, the symptoms progressively got better as days turn into months. After months of treatment I stop having those thoughts, though I have not gone for any test yet for over 4 year now, I have never had any psychotic symptoms. It's obvious that I have been cure.

MY SON'S STORY

OUR EXPERIENCE WITH CONSUMMO


My son, was diagnosed as a paranoid/disorganized schizophrenic in 2004. The first signs we saw over the period 12 - 16 months, before he received (Consummo) treatment, were: He wouldn't eat, everything tasted "funny" or he thought I was putting something in the food to make it taste "funny". He wouldn't even eat McDonalds food, which he always loved. He will leaves the kitchen and will not eat with the rest of the family because of a fear that we are contaminating his food he has an extreme fear and belief that family members are placing toxins and poisons in his food. Because of this fear he  only purchased food in small prepackaged containers (cans, individually wrapped food items, etc.) that he can eat entirely at one sitting. If he doesn't completely eat or drink what is in that package he will just throw the rest away rather than put it in the refrigerator for later consumption. If we walk into the kitchen while he is eating he will frequently throw all his food garbage because he seems to believe that we have "contaminated it". He lost 50 lbs during this time (6 - 7 months). I took him to our family doctor who did a series of tests, including a drug test, all came back negative. He then started to zone out for long periods of time (1 - 2 hours). He wouldn't blink very often or change his expression. I would ask him if anything was wrong and he'd just shake his head no. He then started to laugh during these times for no reason. He would sit and stare at his hands for hours, when I would ask him what was wrong with his hands, he would say they are different than they use to be.
During this entire period, his grades in school went from C's - D's to all F's. The school would call and say he would get up and walk out of class and just roam the halls. Starting in June , he started getting very aggressive, talking to himself and laughing in his room. He would get very upset and run out of his room, down the stairs and outside. He started doing this everyday. It started really going down hill from there.
He would never say he was hearing voices, but it was very apparent he was. God told him what numbers to play for the lottery, if I bought a ticket I would win millions. He heard other voices, I would hear him talking to them.
He started talking in a language we did not understand, after research I found these to be called "word salads". He would call me by a name that no one understood, he said I was from a different planet sent here to kill him.  He would come out of his room, scream at all of us in the foreign language, and tell us we all were going to die. Would no longer watch T.V., In fact he broke his cd player by doing this. Paced constantly or do just the opposite not get out of bed for hours during the day. (he would not sleep at night). Started to hallucinate. The walls had bugs on them, we all looked different, my eye brows were pointed upward and my ears had grown. He said things were moving when they were not. During this time I was totally freaking out.
The above are a brief summary of what was happening, so many things occurred during this period I can't remember or have blocked some of it out. I was able to admit him to the hospital by telling him we were just going to the doctor but effort by Doctor prove abortive, we resort us into getting Consummo.
I credit my son recovery to Dr.Justin Rodwen Hill (Consummo). I just hope our story will inspires you not to think the future of your son is hopeless. He now find it easier to talk to people now, which was not the case years ago. Though we still have many other ups and downs constantly in our family but our son is back to his normal senses which is most important, because for someone who has never had confidence , and has low-self esteem I think he have accomplished a lot and he now have a targeted goals. That is our experience with Consummo

CURE STORY

SCARLETT'S STORY


Hi, my name is Scarlett. I am writing this in hopes that one day you will be symptom-free like I am now. When I was younger, I used to play a game where someone would say a word or phrase and youwere to say the first thing that popped into your head. If I was to play this game with people in the street and say ‘paranoid schizophrenia’, I wonder what the responses would be. I’m guessing a lot of people would say either ‘evil’ or ‘murderer’ and if you had asked me five years ago, I probably would have said one of those words too.

As someone who suffers with paranoid schizophrenia, I’m used to hearing my diagnosis on the news. It’s always in a bad light. Always. Either a murder or other violent crime has been committed and the media’s insistence on only broadcasting negative stories about schizophrenia ensures that the stigma around this diagnosis stays painfully bad. When I was unwell, I was hearing voices and suffered with delusional beliefs amongst other things. I definitely didn’t spend my time planning inventive ways of killing people. No, I was just scared by the voices I was hearing and confused by the delusional beliefs I had.

The first noticeable symptoms of schizophrenia started when I was 21. I was walking through town on a break from college when a male voice started talking to me. In the months that followed, this voice would tell me to harm myself but it also told me to harm other people. I didn’t want to hurt anyone, and so I never did, despite some commands being unbearably loud. Two years after the first symptoms started, I neglected myself so badly that I was sectioned as a danger to self.

Two days before I was sectioned, I had attended university, and worked my usual shift in my part-time retail job. It was so upsetting to go from a working student to a sectioned psychiatric inpatient in hospital in the blink of an eye. After eight weeks in hospital, where I was forced into taking antipsychotic medication, I was discharged and sent home. My symptoms hadn’t improved however, and I ended up back in hospital less than a year after discharge. Paranoid schizophrenia has made me hear voices and suffer with delusions, intrusive thoughts and a very low mood, but it has never made me evil. When I struggled with my illness, I was just confused. I wasn’t murderous. If you had seen me in the street, you probably wouldn’t have given me a second thought.

I tried five different antipsychotics but didn’t find any of them to be helpful. The statistics say that around 75 – 80% of people with schizophrenia will find antipsychotic medication to be helpful, but I appear to be in the minority of people who don’t find it helpful. Mental illnesses have such terrible stigmas attached that many sufferers end up stigmatising themselves. I know I did. I came close to maiming myself when I was first put on antipsychotic medication. The word antipsychotic made me believe that doctors were calling me an evil murderer and I desperately felt that I had to disable myself to prevent me from harming anyone. Being labelled with schizophrenia made me stigmatise myself even further, but fortunately I was able to recover and learn the truths of schizophrenic illnesses before the label of paranoid schizophrenia was attached to me.

I was symptomatic for four years before I finally found something that helped which is CONSUMMO (An herbal Medicine) developed by Justin Rodwen Hill, it worked for me, I believe it saved my life. Getting the right help for my illness was what enabled me to recover. Also, being treated as an individual went a long way to ensuring my recovery. Everyone with schizophrenia is different, so we all require tailored support to help us through the times when we are unwell. I finished my undergraduate and graduate school, drove a car, got married, had a baby, traveled alone internationally, rode the bus alone across the country, participated in half-marathons, and moved by myself multiple times within the United States. In other words, I lived life. Each of us has something unique and beautiful to share with the world in spite of — or perhaps because of — our current situation. I wish you all luck and hope that someday your lives will be SYMPTOM FREE! Although my SCHIZOPHRENIA was challenging, it made me the strong and determined person. I am able to live a life free of the worry of having a psychosis any day.

Nowadays, you wouldn’t know I have ever had schizophrenia, unless I told you. A lot of sufferers are quiet and shy, and they wouldn’t and couldn’t hurt anyone. Yet the attitude towards schizophrenia, and paranoid schizophrenia in particular, seems to be that we’re all murderers-to-be who should be locked up for the safety of others. But schizophrenia doesn’t mean I have evil eyes or an array of weapons. As Lewis Carroll wrote, “I'm not strange, weird, off, nor crazy, my reality is just different from yours.”

Aaron's Story

CONSUMMO 


I will start by saying I recommend strongly Consummo for all schizophrenia patients not only from my personal experiences but also from those I heard when I was about to get the medicine. Before I share my experience, I will like to digress a bit . If you think this Universe is bad, you should see some of the others. They’ve always tried to help me, but having schizophrenia it was hard to receive the help. The schizophrenic mind is not so much split as shattered. I like to say schizophrenia is like a waking nightmare. Schizophrenia is when the total personalities of your past lives or the memories of invading spirits enter your body. Some of the most evil human beings in the world are psychiatrists. Not all psychiatrists. Some psychiatrists are selfless, caring people who really want to help. But the sad truth is that in today's society, mental health isn't a science. It's an industry. Ritalin, Zoloft, Prozac, Lexapro, Resperidone, happy pills that are supposed to "normalize" the behavior of our families, colleagues, friends but they come with different negative action. To a psychiatrist, it's a financial opportunity. Making money is their priority, Even though there is cure to serious mental illness , they aren't interested. You will be the one to take the bold step in helping the victim. The alarming number of people, especially children, who seem to have these "illnesses" and needed to be highly medicated or locked up, Why?... it's horrifying.
The psychiatrists get their prestigious reputation and their money to burn. The drug companies get fast cash and a chance to claim that they've discovered a wonder-drug, capable of "treating" anyone who might be a burden on society... that's what it's all about. It's not about really talking to these troubled people and finding out what they need. It's about giving them a pill that fits a pattern, a weapon to normalize people who might make society uncomfortable. The psychiatrists get their weapon.The mental health industry takes the world's most vulnerable people and messes with their heads, giving them controlled substances just because they don't fit the normal puzzle. And sadly, it's more or less going to get worse in this rapidly advancing century. All these saying are from my personal observation.
These days, Americans spend $200 billion per year on prescription drugs and less than $20 billion on herbs and other dietary supplements. When choosing the best remedy or preventive medicine, most of us simply want the safest, most effective option available, whether it’s food, herbs or a pharmaceutical drug. But the fact remain that herbs come from nature. No form of Nature is inferior to Art; for the arts merely imitate natural forms. sorry for all this essay, In 1980, when I was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia when I was 54, that was when I studied and understand the situation better. After a difficult period of coping with depression, anxiety and paranoia, it was hard to get help from anyone. I was heavily medicated with no improvement. No medicine works for me. My situation get worse daily. We came in contact know about Consummo product 2002. He suggested an alternative if not bouyant but I tried to get the money for Consummo. Consummo was so so effective and powerful. It calm my mood in the very first to second month. It help with depression, anxiety and also for insomnia. If I decide to write about this then I will a day will not be enough. I will not only recommend the medicine who might be reading this but the message should go round the whole vicinity if you have the opportunity. Consummo is a real cure to schizophrenia.
