Indefinitely. Schizophrenia is generally a degenerative disorder, although there are antipsychotics which help manage it. ~~~ From Y!A by gardensa… Member since: 24 December 2006 Contributing In: Mental Health – “Once you go on disability, you will never get off of it, no one does. You will be in poverty the rest of your life unless you marry out of it or a miracle cures you. The ways the rules are make you dependent on the system, so keep that in mind when you are deciding if you want to do this. A lot of people have no choice, because they can’t work at all, or they can’t keep a job with insurance to get their pills”. Take at least 4 Omega 3 fish oil supplements, (high in E.P.A.) or the recommended dose of a high quality of fish oil daily, like Carlsons, or Melrose: (certified free of mercury) it is best if consumed with an antioxidant, such as an orange, or its FRESHLY SQUEEZED juice. If vitamin E is added, it should be certified as being 100% from natural sources, or it may be synthetic: avoid it! Females may benefit by balancing the DHA, & EPA versions of Omega 3 in fish, or krill** oil with ALA flaxseed oil Omega 3, or at least one heaped tablespoonful of ground flaxseed, daily. Vegetarians: Google: “Omega 3; algae; supplies” and use with flaxseed. Use the http://www.mercola.com ** SEARCHBAR. Dr. J Cannell, at http://vitaminDcouncil.org recommends 20,000iu of vitamin D3 daily, with frequent testing to ensure levels of at least 100nmol/l are maintained, for psychosis, and then reduce to around 5000 IU daily (Dr. Mercola recommends 5000 IU to 8000 IU for most healthy people). Dr. Kim, at http://www.drbenkim.com holds similar views.
FOR PEOPLE NOT SUFFERING FROM PSYCHOSIS (HALLUCINATIONS & DELUSIONAL STATES): Dr Mercola, at http://www.mercola.com advises: in the winter months, if not getting sufficient daily exposure to strong light, go to a doctor and ask for a 25(OH)D, also called 25-hydroxyvitamin D, blood test. When you get the results, don’t follow the typical “normal” reference range, as these are too low. The OPTIMAL value that you’re looking for is 45-52 ng/ml (115-128 nmol/l)”. The company which tests your levels has to be one of those using the correct form of test, and this topic is addressed via the searchbar at Mercola.com – “vitamin D3; testing”. View http://drbenkim.com/vitamin-d-facts.htm & http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2008/12/16/my-one-hour-vitamin-d-lecture-to-clear-up-all-your-confusion-on-this-vital-nutrient.aspx 59% of Americans are deficient in the extremely important vitamin D3, with their lowest levels occurring in late winter, and early spring. Canadians get even less sunlight exposure. People with the lowest levels are 11 times more likely to suffer depression (psychosis can occur with major depression). Dr. Cannell advises that the co-factors most often deficient in the American diet, and necessary to optimise its absorption, and utilisation are magnesium, zinc, boron, and vitamin K2. I recommend using either health food/vitamin stores, or Googling: ” … ; supplies” rather than risking any old, or substandard products at supermarkets, or even on pharmacy shelves.
