The Justification for the Diet to Treat Schizophrenia
February 17, 2007 12:40pm CST
Introduction There has been over a century of neuropathology reports claiming positive findings in schizophrenia. I have spent years studying these reports. One of the earlier reports was by Gurd in 1920. Gurd (1920) Adeline Gurd reported chromatolysis (destruction of genetic material), severe fatty degeneration, cell loss, glial proliferation, etc. This confirmed previous work by Alzheimer on "dementia praecox". The severe dfatty degeneration suggests a severe metabolic error. The Vogts (1952) Cecile & Oskar Vogt reported a loss of Nissl substance while vacuoles formed in the cytoplasm. The vacuoles contained fat. Conclusions More details will be provided in the discussion and in future articles.

I agree that there's a metabolic issue, however, sometimes it can be purely related to chemical imbalance, and other times, structural abnormality. However, there has been quite a bit of research done on this, closer to our modern era, that proves that a diet low (or lacking) corn, wheat, milk, high sugar, caffeine, and high carbohydrates generally helps manage schizophrenia. I haven't tried this yet, but something tells me I'm going to end up having no choice.
