Scientology Myths - what is fact? what is fiction?
chapter: Psychiatry

Q: Is there such thing as "chemical imbalance"?

From Wikipedia:
"A chemical imbalance is sometimes thought to be the cause of mental illness. The term is used in consumer literature and websites for psychoactive drugs, and in advertising in the United States after the deregulation of pharmaceutical advertising. It is not used in scientific literature as it does not reflect current knowledge."

From Dr. Julian Whitaker, author and founder of the highly respected Whitaker Wellness Center in California:
"There's no pathology. There's no blood test. There's no lab test. There's no x-ray. Psychiatrists list out and vote on clusters of behavior and call them a disease. They are giving drugs to millions of people who do not have a defined medical problem."

From New York psychiatrist Ron Leifer :
"There's no biological imbalance. When people come to me and they say, 'I have a biochemical imbalance,' I say, 'Show me your lab tests.' There are no lab tests. So what's the biochemical imbalance?"

You can test for a cold, you can test for a flu, or for cancer, or a tooth cavity, or a broken bone. Chemical Imbalance is diagnosed with no medical test. I refer to the wikipedia quote above. This isn't a debatable issue. Chemical Imbalance does not exist, medically. Therefore it can't be cured... so why are people on drugs to cure a condition they don't have?..

I guess that explains why psychiatry and the pharmaceutical companies have such a problem with the Church of Scientology. If a religion was a threat to your multi-billion-plus industry and a threat to your overall global control plans, you'd use some of your resources to attack them too. If Scientology wasn't effective, working and expanding, why would they even care?
