YOU GOT IT WRONG - JAY TAN UPDATE JULY 2017

The aim of this blog is to highlight persons in the media who tout the chemical imbalance theory as a fact. It's highly unprofessional and misleading to do so and this blog demands that any statements relating to the 'chemical imbalance' myth should either be backed up with supporting evidence or redacted.

Where possible, each person featured on this blog has been contacted via Twitter, email, and/or Facebook and asked to redact their statements or provide supporting evidence.

Once supporting evidence has been shown they will be removed from this blog. Moreover, if they redact their original statements they will also be removed from this blog.

As you will see from these lists, many of the authors are household names and influence those who follow them. This has to stop. The chemical imbalance line was created by the pharmaceutical industry, moreover, Eli Lilly, who launched the first of the SSRIs, Prozac.

Those featured on this list need to do their research.

Nursing professor Jay Tan

(FACEBOOK)

Growing up, Tan was drawn to medicine and the sciences, fascinated by all things related to anatomy, physiology, theories, and genes. He focused on nursing, attending Cebu State Medical Center College of Nursing (now known as Cebu Normal University), and graduated first in his class in 1990.

Four years of clinical nursing work and a master’s degree later, Tan left his homeland and for a job at a long-term care nursing home and rehabilitation facility in North Las Vegas.

Tan featured earlier on this blog here. It appears he is still claiming he knows that mental illness is caused by a chemical imbalance as this article appeared July 11, 2017

Article Prescriptions, Perfectly Personalized


Quote “A lot of people with mental health problems still don’t want to seek help because of social stigma but look at diabetes: It’s a chemical imbalance brought about by genetics. Yet diabetics who receive insulin aren’t ostracized in the community. But if you’re depressed, suicidal, manic depressive — which are all the result of a chemical imbalance — when you talk about it or seek treatment, people often say, ‘Really? Are you that bad?’ And there’s the stigma. Now I have scientific, biological data that proves mental illness is not a wrath from God. It’s not a sign of weakness.”

Article ADHD



Quote Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a serious medical problem involving a chemical imbalance in the brain that affects the way a person thinks and behaves. Because ADHD involves a chemical imbalance in the brain, many professionals prescribe medication to “correct” the imbalance. And, while there is no cure for ADHD, the good news is that we are learning effective intervention strategies. Medication works for many children and adults.

Article What are the depression causes?


Quote Neurotransmitters (e.g., serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine) are likely to cause or trigger depression (partially). A serotonin shortage in the brains can be one of the depression causes. This shortage can make someone feel suicidal as well. Serotonin regulates physiological functions such as sleep, sexual behaviour, aggression, appetite and mood. A serotonin shortage can also disturb the balance of other neurotransmitters, which in turn could result in triggering a depression. People with a history of depression may have a dysfunctional norepinephrine system that doesn’t respond well to stressful situations. Depressed people who experience less joy are likely to have low dopamine levels (dopamine is associated with the reward and joy seeking behaviour). The examples above show that depression and depression symptoms can be caused and triggered by a chemical imbalance in the brains..

Article What causes depression?


Quote The human brain is like a command center. It oversees and controls everything, from organ functioning and movement, to complex emotions and beliefs. This incredible balance between mind and body is orchestrated by millions of neurons and all sorts of substances, such as neurotransmitters and hormones. Even a tiny imbalance in brain chemistry can easily affect how you perceive the world. When it comes to biological factors for depression, it is commonly accepted that serotonin plays a crucial role. In the brain, this neurotransmitter acts as a relay, transporting messages from one area to another.
Given this critical task, an imbalance in serotonin levels may influence our emotions. Since depression is often characterized by negative emotions, the link between this mood disorder and serotonin is obvious.

Article Causes of depression


Quote Depression can be linked to a chemical imbalance in the brain. This usually involves a drop in the level of chemicals in the brain called neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters take messages from your brain to your nerve cells. The common ones involved in depression are serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine.
Such a chemical imbalance can be triggered by a physical or emotional (psychological) event in your life. Sometimes it is hard to know if it was one or the other. Often both types may play a part.
