YOU GOT IT WRONG - Edward Thomas (LiveStrong)

The aim of this blog is to highlight persons in the media who tout the chemical imbalance theory as a fact. It's highly unprofessional and misleading to do so and this blog demands that any statements relating to the 'chemical imbalance' myth should either be backed up with supporting evidence or redacted.

Where possible, each person featured on this blog has been contacted via Twitter, email, and/or Facebook and asked to redact their statements or provide supporting evidence.

Once supporting evidence has been shown they will be removed from this blog. Moreover, if they redact their original statements they will also be removed from this blog.

As you will see from these lists, many of the authors are household names and influence those who follow them. This has to stop. The chemical imbalance line was created by the pharmaceutical industry, moreover, Eli Lilly, who launched the first of the SSRIs, Prozac.

Those featured on this list need to do their research.

Quote "A chemical imbalance is a diagnosis made by physicians and psychiatrists to explain why changes in the neurological state of a person occurs. Lower levels of potassium, deficient levels of essential vitamins, reduced ability of neurotransmitters such as serotonin and an increased amount of cortisol stress hormone levels can all trigger a chemical imbalance. Common disorders associated with a chemical imbalance is depression and anxiety. Signs of a chemical imbalance can greatly vary with each person, although a few shared traits exist. Any altered behavior can be a sign of a chemical imbalance. Depression such as overwhelming sadness, crying, loss of interest in activities, fatigue, and losing hope can all indicate a chemical imbalance. The feeling of being hypersensitive is one that is often reported by people diagnosed with a chemical imbalance."
