YOU GOT IT WRONG - Dr. Chris Steele

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 Let me just simply explain depression. Basically, your brain is drained of the chemicals that keep you in, a sort of, level mood, and one of those chemicals is called serotonin and when you drain your brain of serotonin then depression can creep up upon you. And the antidepressants that we use now push the levels of serotonin in your brain and put you back to normal. It's not unlike hormone replacement therapy, your body is running short of hormones so you take hormone replacement therapy to push those levels. ”

  1. Wow! There are some pretty ridiculous statements re: chemical imbalance but this one is a real doozy. What a load of nonsense!

    1. Possibly the most ludicrous explaination so far.

  2. Where did he study this?!? So unprofessional! Absolutely NO EVIDENCE! Just assumptions that may be a cause. Evidence still not in to prove it as fact though!

    1. And this is a man who gives advice to millions of TV viewers every day.
