It seems to me, theories of scioizphrenha bounce between focus on nature or nurture, and real progress is elusive. I have to disagree with some here, since the results seem to show that there is some physical difference, even if we're not sure just what it is. One of the ideas I always found interesting, was the "trans-methylation" idea: natural brain chemicals made into or into analogs of things like DMT, 5-MeO DMT, mescaline, and some offbeat chemicals like adrenochrome ("dren chrom" in A Clockwork Orange.) I remember the studies about high doses of Vitamin C and niacin or its amide reversing symptoms of scioizphrenha, and also can be used as antidotes for hallucinogens. (I've heard from users, C gives a "smoother trip.) Does it help, and if so why not try it more, even now that we have "truly effective" drugs like clozapine.Also, in a documentary I heard about some schizophrenics getting relief by dialysis. One who was an artist, would give that up for awhile so she could produce her signature weird art. Wish I could remember more."Fine minds make find distinctions."
