Go to the brain shrink for a good dose of brain shrink

Antipsychotic medications cause a measureable decrease in brain volume! Of course, our brains naturally lose some volume as we age, caused by lost brain cells and connections, AKA atrophy. But how many doctors will tell you that taking antipsychotic drugs will cause you to lose your brain at a faster rate? This continuous loss of billions of brain cells causes a brain volume loss of 0.7% a year. A loss of brain cells and connections in general will exacerbate cognitive problems and brain disorders – if not actually cause them… And the higher the dose of medication, the faster and greater the brain loss. According to a recent study out in PLOS ONE, the newer antipsychotics are no better for causing brain shrinking than the old ones. Is this why they call psychiatrists “shrinks”? You are so much better off running to find a good nutritionist or naturopath for disease treatment rather than acquiessing to the medical mucky mucks for disease management.

I guess it's less brain to think for yourself with.
