Schizophrenia after that motor vehicle accident
Question: I am aware that chiropractic care is not highly recommended by traditional doctors. However, I have had some positive results under other circumstances; hence, there is some wisdom to it.
But, what if someone has been diagnosed as being bipolar or schizophrenic - this seeming to have come after motor vehicle accidents - and is complaining of occasional headaches? The person has become withdrawn, but uses the computer and holds a lucid conversation and is therefore not "mad" as some doctors are quick to label.
I am anxious to get some proper therapy or some rehabilitation which is grossly lacking in our society for people with this complaint. Let me know if chiropractic treatment could help, or any other suggestions as to where I could turn for a positive outcome.
It cannot be drugs and more drugs. I am looking forward to your response.
Answer: Hi, Beverly. I will keep this very simple and not try to impress you with big or confusing "scientific" words, or even demeaning words such as "mad".
You are correct. More and more toxic drugs are not the answer to cover up symptoms and basically make someone docile.
Symptoms are indicators to underlying problems. When attempting to treat symptoms, the results are almost always frustrating, because the symptom is not the core problem and thus will never be "cured". Additionally, the use of drugs and other things to "treat" these symptoms inherently cause more symptoms — which they call side effects — and the vicious cycle continues.
I believe in what you describe that you are innately making the connection of post-MVA (Motor Vehicle Accident) cause and effect. It is quite possible that a trauma can cause bones in the spine to become misaligned, putting pressure on nerves.
The nerves contain the life force that flows through our bodies and allow the brain and body to communicate. Interference in this vital communication results in just about any symptom anywhere in the body that you could imagine, and this can lead to misdiagnosis.
Many times, when the interference is removed, the Power that made the body flows once again, unimpeded, through the body, and ultimately heals the body. It happens no other way.
Dr Harvey always recommends vitamin D-3 for schizophrenia, minimum of 5000 IU/day, along with vitamin K-2, 5000 mcg/day, to balance the vitamin D-3, in addition to my recommended spinal adjustments.
