A person is usually put on an Antipsychotic when they have had a psychotic break, or when other medications fail to work. These drugs, though seemingly effective on the onset, are typically not well tolerated after long term use. People that are medicated on these drugs are often unable to perform in life as they would like to, find it hard to set goals, and have difficulty perceiving reward in life. These side effects are commonly deemed better than continued visits to the hospital, or loss of sleep in the case of extreme insomnia, so the person remains on the drug. Antipsychotics are a variety of medications used primarily to manage psychosis, hallucinations, delusions and disordered thought. These medications, such as Risperdal, Lithium, or Seroquel, are particularly prescribed for individuals who have been diagnosed with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. However, in some cases, people are now taking these medications for severe depression or anxiety. However, side effects can be overcome and Antipsychotic withdrawal can be conquered with treatment.

Neurotoxins are things that poison the neurochemicals of the brain or disrupt their expression at the synapse. Neurotoxins also include things like Mercury that actually destroy nerve cells. Aspartame and MSG are also considered excitotoxins that over-stimulate the nervous system. Just as pesticides kill by throwing the insect’s nervous system in overdrive, these all too common pollutants do the same to us once we have accumulated a toxic burden. Most of what breaks down our neurochemistry leading to the imbalances are neurotoxic chemicals, and we suspect it may be the leading factor in mental health issues. We perform testing of urine samples for heavy toxic metals and evaluate toxicity. This allows us to know what metals are likely affecting the person. Other neurotoxins like pesticides need to be cleaned out so an individual’s physiology, cellular metabolism and neurochemistry may occur more normally. There are toxins and residues from food that we eat, from water that we drink, and from air that we breathe that are lodged inside of our bodies. In toxic environments, nutritional correction alone will not likely be effective, as toxins interrupt or destroy synthesis of cellular metabolism, biochemistry, and neurochemistry. These toxic states leave individuals in weakened conditions and can lead to anxiety, depression or drug cravings, persisting infectious conditions, and have resulted in psychosis.
