General Schizophrenia Information
Schizophrenia is a mood disorder that results in difficulty differentiating between the imaginary and the real. There are more than 2 million Americans with schizophrenia, which seems to affect men more than women. There are two kinds of mental illnesses: mood disorders and schizophrenic disorders. Those who suffer from mood disorders seem to be normal between episodes. This is not true for victims of schizophrenia, who very seldom behave normally between episodes.

There are four types of schizophrenia:

  • Catatonic schizophrenia is characterized by a rigid posture, limited movement or out of control movement.
  • Disorganized schizophrenia, also known as hebephrenic schizophrenia, is characterized by a limited range of emotions and speech that display a disorganized way of thinking.
  • Paranoid schizophrenia is characterized by delusions and hallucinations.
  • Undifferentiated schizophrenia is characterized by a mixture of the possible symptoms listed above.

    Possible Causes of Schizophrenia
    There is much debate over the causes of schizophrenia. The disorder seems to develop during or after a time of intense stress or a stressful life event. The balance and levels of the neurotransmitters dopamine, serotonin, epinephrine and norepinephrine in the brain are thought to be key to the development of schizophrenia. Varying researchersí theories for the cause of schizophrenia include:

  • an inherited chemical imbalance in the brain causing malfunctions of the brainís neurotransmitters.
  • complications during birth or childhood head injuries.
  • reactions to viruses, poisons or drugs.
  • nutritional factors, including lack of vitamin C and zinc, resulting in damage to the pineal area of the brain creating vulnerability to schizophrenia. Male babies are susceptible to zinc deficiencies during gestation.
  • reduced estrogen levels, indicated with higher incidences in women over 40 with reduced estrogen.
  • magnesium deficiency caused by stress, indicated by higher levels of magnesium in those in remission.

    Possible Symptoms of Schizophrenia
    The symptoms of schizophrenia may be withdrawal from contact with others, tension, depression, personality problems, fatigue, mental derangement, a lack of curiosity, reduced emotional contact, lethargy, violent outburst, unresponsive and hallucinations. Schizophrenics generally lose their grip on reality in a range that may be mild to extreme.

    Possible Lifestyle Changes for Schizophrenia
    Avoid alcohol and caffeine consumption as alcohol depletes zinc and caffeine promotes unwanted neurotransmitter stimulation. Eat smaller meals of high-fiber, raw vegetables and low-fat proteins. Reduce intake of processed sugars to help keep blood sugar levels at stable levels. Reduce and control stressful pressures from your environment, including overly emotional situations and work-related stress. If taking prescription drugs for schizophrenia, do not stop taking your medication without first consulting a physician. Do not take any supplements that may affect dopamine, serotonin or norepinephrine synthesis without consulting a physician.
