YOU GOT IT WRONG - Niels Eék

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.

Article  On the pill: Why taking antidepressants is the latest mental health taboo


Quote Some people believe that medication can’t be used to help a mental health problem and that people should just ‘pick themselves up’ or ‘deal with it and move on. However, medications like antidepressants actually help correct chemical imbalances and work on the neurotransmitters to lessen the symptoms of the condition.”

Quote Living with depression has been my biggest struggle. It’s a constant battle, one that I haven’t really talked about publicly and probably should do more… I don’t think many people ‘get over’ depression to be honest, I think it’s something that you continuously need to stay on top of and manage. There’s no shame in it, ultimately it’s a chemical imbalance in your brain.”

Article  The Quandary of a "Biochemical Imbalance"


Quote We, from the mental health community, basically believe that emotional illness is due to a biochemical imbalance of the brain. It seems to make sense; after all, emotional illness is due to aberrant thoughts and feelings. And where do these originate from? Well, they’re products of brain processes. These functions are the result of biochemical reactions. For it must be remembered that the brain is, in a sense, a biochemical factory.   All these chemicals, working together in very complex ways, produce our thoughts and feelings.
So, if you’re having serious problems with abnormal thoughts and feelings, they’re due to the biochemistry of the brain, of course. This biochemistry has something wrong with it—“a biochemical imbalance”—which plays havoc with thoughts and feelings. The “cure” for this “biochemical imbalance” is to “fix it” with remedial chemicals—medicines. In a sense, these “pharmaceuticals” restore the biochemistry to a “normal balance.”.”
