Scientists shocked to find antibiotics alleviate symptoms of schizophrenia | PSYC0203 | Scoop.it
A cheap antibiotic normally prescribed to teenagers for acne is to be tested as a treatment to alleviate the symptoms of psychosis in patients with schizophrenia, in a trial that could advance scientific understanding of the causes of mental illness.

 

The chance observation caused researchers to test the drug in patients with schizophrenia around the world. Trials in Israel, Pakistan and Brazil have shown significant improvement in patients treated with the drug.

 

Scientists believe that schizophrenia and other mental illnesses including depression and Alzheimer's disease may result from inflammatory processes in the brain. Minocycline has anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective effects which they believe could account for the positive findings.

Catholic League President Bill Donohue on Friday seemed to miss Pope Francis’ recent call to make the Catholic Church a “home for all” and insisted that “molesting priests were gay” instead of being pedophiles. “When men have sex with adolescent men, it’s called homosexuality. It is not pedophilia,” Donohue told CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Friday. “Less than 5 percent of the priests involved in molestation are pedophiles. I will never stop telling the truth. And the pope never said we should either. I am against gay bashing.”

1. This article is very resourceful for people who are dealing with someone who is schizophrenic. It lays out all the guidelines about the illness in a simple but accurate manner.

2. Everything that is said in this article correlates with the text books and websites. It talks about how the drugs are dangerous and increase your symptoms of schizophrenia. Myers (2014) says the same thing. It says that any drug that increases your dopamine level shouldn't be used when you have schizophrenia (Myers, 2014). This article also talks about the different things that can trigger schizophrenia. Myers (2014) says the same thing, that depression, stress or genetics can cause someone to suffer from schizophrenia (Myers, 2014). They also say that people that suffer from schizophrenia can get help through medications. Tartakovsky (2010) said the same thing; that the medications will help reduce hallucinations and bizarre behavior and help the patient to lead a normal life (Tartakovsky, 2010).

3. There was nothing in this article that addressed diversity. That seems to be a theme in all these articles.

Avatar helps people living with schizophrenia stand up to the voices in their heads

Avatar helps people living with schizophrenia stand up to the voices in their heads | PSYC0203 | Scoop.it

Putting a digital face to the abusive voices in their head could help people with schizophrenia.

 

Results of a preliminary trial, announced today at the Wellcome Trust in London, demonstrated how people with schizophrenia could overcome their auditory hallucinations by conversing with an avatar representation of the voice in their head.

 

At the start of the trial, 16 people with schizophrenia created an on-screen avatar that best matched what they imagined the voice in their head to look like – much like a police photo-fit. They then chose a male or female voice closely resembling the one they hear.

 

By conversing with a therapist via the avatar, the volunteers reported reduced levels of distress and higher self-esteem. Three people stopped hearing the hallucinatory voice altogether – including one who had lived with it for 16 years.

littlebytesnews's curator insight, January 18, 2013 7:16 PM

This is how they had homosexualitly removed from the DSM book of mental disorders. The lobbyists and liberals start to claim human rights defense, discrimination or some other weak excuse to justify their immorality.

 

The International Classification of Diseases (ICD) defines pedophilia as a "disorder of adult personality and behaviour" in which there is a sexual preference for children of prepubertal or early pubertal age.[5] According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), it is a paraphilia in which a person has intense and recurrent sexual urges towards and fantasies about prepubescent children and on which feelings they have either acted or which cause distress or interpersonal difficulty.

 

On Wednesday, August 17, 2012, child advocates Matt Barber, Vice President of Liberty Counsel Action, and Dr. Judith Reisman, a visiting law professor at Liberty University School of Law, attended a Baltimore, MD conference hosted by the pedophile group B4U-ACT.

Around 50 individuals were in attendance including a number of admitted pedophiles-–or “Minor-Attracted Persons” as they prefer to be identified (MAP “sexual orientation”)-–as well as several supportive mental health professionals.

World renowned “sexologist,” Dr. Fred Berlin of Johns Hopkins University gave the keynote address, saying: “I want to completely support the goal of B4U-ACT.”

 

 

B4U-ACT is the driving force behind this movement. Its goal is to reconceptualize our thinking about what they politely call "Minor-Attracted Persons." If they had it their way, sex between adults and minors would no longer be taboo, and pedophilia would no longer be listed as a mental illness by the American Psychiatric Association. So where is the outrage? To be specific, where is the outrage from those who are fixated on priestly sexual abuse?

Put this first-hand account of the B4U-ACT conference with the Catholic League's first-hand account of the SNAP conference (see today's earlier release), and what emerges is a two-pronged attack: the pedophilia-friendly psychiatrists want to undermine traditional standards of morality, and SNAP (and its allies) want to undermine its most prominent voice, namely the Catholic Church. To say they represent twin devils is to understate the issue.

And this is what Matt Barber and Dr. Judith Reisman’s heard at the conference:

Pedophiles are “unfairly stigmatized and demonized” by society.

There was concern about “vice-laden diagnostic criteria” and “cultural baggage of wrongfulness.”

“We are not required to interfere with or inhibit our child‟s sexuality.”

“Children are not inherently unable to consent” to sex with an adult.

“In Western culture sex is taken too seriously.”

“Anglo-American standard on age of consent is new [and „Puritanical‟]. In Europe it was always set at 10 or 12. Ages of consent beyond that are relatively new and very strange, especially for boys. They‟ve always been able to have sex at any age.”

An adult‟s desire to have sex with children is “normative.”

Our society should “maximize individual liberty. … We have a highly moralistic society that is not consistent with liberty.”

“Assuming children are unable to consent lends itself to criminalization and stigmatization.”

“These things are not black and white; there are various shades of gray.”

A consensus belief by both speakers and pedophiles in attendance was that, because it vilifies MAPs, pedophilia should be removed as a mental disorder from the American Psychiatric Association‟s (APA) Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), in the same manner homosexuality was removed in 1973.

Dr. Fred Berlin acknowledged that it was political activism, similar to that witnessed at the conference, rather than scientific considerations that successfully led to the declassification of homosexuality as a mental disorder: The reason “homosexuality was taken out of DSM is that people didn‟t want the government in the bedroom,” he said.

Dr. Berlin appeared to endorse the politically maligned clinical practice of “reparative therapy” for homosexuals and pedophiles alike, saying, “If someone, for their own reasons, doesn‟t want to live a homosexual lifestyle, I tell them that it‟s hard but I‟ll try to help them.”

The DSM ignores that pedophiles “have feelings of love and romance for children” in the same way adult heterosexuals and homosexuals have romantic feelings for one another.

“The majority of pedophiles are gentle and rational.”

The DSM should “focus on the needs” of the pedophile, and should have “a minimal focus on social control,” rather than obsessing about the “need to protect children.”

Self-described “gay activist” and speaker Jacob Breslow said that children can properly be “the object of our attraction.” He further objectified children, suggesting that pedophiles needn‟t gain consent from a child to have sex with “it” any more than we need consent from a shoe to wear it. He then used graphic, slang language to favorably describe the act of climaxing (ejaculating) “on or with” a child. No one in attendance objected to this explicit depiction of child sexual assault.
Commentary. Pedophiles are justly “demonized by society” because what they do and advocate is exactly that: DEMONIC. Also, look at how they admit that homosexuality was dropped from the list of psychiatric disorders for political – not scientific – reasons and how they intend to emulate the homosexualist movement to gain recognition for poor, misunderstood “MAPs.” Also note how they take direct aim at Judeo-Christian morality under the euphemism “cultural baggage of wrongfulness.” Notice to the connection gay activist Jacob Breslow made between homosexuality and child sexual abuse.

Of course, you didn’t see this in the press because this wasn’t a conference of disaffected Catholic priests, but of voices representative of our social vanguards.

There are some psychiatrists who are now trying to get pedophilia 'normalized' by having it removed from the DSM as they did with homosexuality in the 70's. https://plus.google.com/u/0/103087425533147519173/posts/cBtRsdXqGfF

Mohammed married his bride at age 6 and first had sex with her at age 9. That is considered pedophilia in most civilized countries/cultures. However, apparently it is acceptable even today under Islam according to some clerics such as the one I linked to from Saudia Arabia. They also legitimize sex with men and boys and say it's not pedophilia or homosexuality, but that they are fulfilling a sexual need because they consider women 'dirty'.  As the article I linked to on 'Boy Play' says: "Those who believe in the sacredness and infallibility of the Koran adhere to the teaching that women are sub-human and quasi-slaves, and therefore Muslim men will look for relationships -- even sexual relationships -- with others of their own gender."

 

Is Pedophilia a Sexual Orientation??

So if you are US Army in Kabul and you see a Taliban man raping an 8 year old girl, it is now against regulations to stop it (for cultural reasons) or speak out against it as well. This is the Evil Age of Obama.

http://thelastpsychiatrist.com/2012/02/pedophilia_is_normal_because_o.html 

Highlights:

"Hebephilia-- the sexual attraction to post-pubescent children, is currently being proposed for inclusion into the DSM-V. Should it be considered a mental disorder? (This is different than asking if it should be a crime.) "
...
"If you look closely at your calendar, right after the year you will see, in tiny font, that interest in pubescent girls may be normal; but interest in pubescent boys is always and seriously whacked.

Once you "normalize" sexual interest in 14 year old girls, you either normalize it for boys or you quietly suggest homosexuality in general is slightly pathological. You can only pick one, and the rest of us have to live with the consequences.

If hebephilia-- all of it-- is pathology, however, you avoid that dicey distinction. Phew. America is safe."

 

Had the normalizing of pedophilia begun?

There is something seriously wrong in the fertile Yakima Valley region of Washington.

As reported by CNN, a nurse in the area, Sara Barron, was the first to report on a particularly horrifying condition: anencephaly -- a condition in which babies are born without much of their brain and skull. "I was just stunned," she told the network in an interview. "Three in a couple-of-month period of time... that's unheard of, and they have such tragic, terrible outcomes." Her shocking finding and report eventually prompted an investigation by the state health department. Investigators found some disturbing results. Over a three-year period, there were 23 cases concentrated in three southern Washington counties -- Yakima, Benton and Franklin.
