I want to address the issue of a “chemical imbalance” in our brains as the reason therapist give out psychiatric drugs. This is done all the time and it is a huge money maker for the drug companies and psychiatrists.

I’ve thought for a long time that this was suspect at the least.  My question was, “How do they know there is a chemical imbalance?”  If my thyroid is off they can do a blood test to find that out and then give me a medication to correct it.  This is also, true with blood pressure.  They take my blood pressure and then know if it is in the safe zone.  If not, they prescribe blood pressure medication. 

All this makes sense to me, but if they say I have a chemical imbalance in my brain, I want to see the test results.  But, you know what?  There isn’t any!  They do not exist!  The doctors only “guess” that you have a chemical imbalance and throw pills at you.  These are not just candy pills that wouldn’t harm you, but they are very powerful drugs that actually do change the brain. 

I’ve done some research and find that there is no proof that a chemical imbalance is causing anyone problems such as anxiety, fear, depression, and a lot of other so-called mental problems. 

“The brain is far too complex to be precisely “adjusted” with drugs.  There are more than 500 different neurotransmitters in the brain and no one knows exactly how they work or the consequences of “adjusting” them with drugs.”  (Occult Invasion by Dave Hunt.)

Some people say that panic disorder is a disease, (but it isn’t,) and should be treated the same way as diabetes.  In diabetes the medication is insulin, and for panic disorder they prescribe other drugs.  This, however, is not so. They should not be treated the same way.

Dave Hunt in Occult Invasion goes on to say, “There is one huge difference:  Insulin operates below the neck, while psychoactive drugs affect the brain.  And remember, no one knows what these drugs do to the brain nor how harmful they may be even beyond the many cases of violence, including suicide and murder, which court cases claim were caused by various prescription drugs.”

“In pursuing a “chemical” solution, science ignores what ought to be the first priority:  getting right with God through Jesus Christ.  His incarnation united God and man in His own Person; and He brings that reconciliation and union within the human spirit when He is received as Savior.  Christianity is not a set of rules for one to follow.  Only Christ can live the Christian life, and He will live it in and through those who believe in Him…”

Gal 1:15-16 NASB But when God, who had set me apart even from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace, was pleased to reveal His Son in me so that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately consult with flesh and blood,

Dave Hunt goes on to say, “The Spirit of God within us needs no help from psychotherapy or drugs.”

It is sad to me to think that millions of people are being duped into thinking they have a chemical imbalance when in fact there is no scientific evidence that they do.  We are becoming a nation of druggies.  If we are anxious they give us a pill.  If we feel sad and blue they give us a pill.  There seems to be a pill for everything.  I know you’ve seen all the commercials on television advertising drugs for anything and everything.  What in the world is going on?

Dear friends, I want so much for each and every one of you to live the life that God wants for to.  I know that some of you can’t even leave your homes.  Some of you can’t get out and enjoy shopping or taking your kids to fun events.  Some of you are so full of anxiety and fear your life is controlled by it.  It makes me sad.  I know how you feel because I’ve been there myself.  I’m very thankful for our Wonderful Savior who delivered me out of that trap.  In my case, it took a long time because I did not know what I know now.  That is why I share with you and keep sharing as I learn and grow in Christ.

Doesn’t it make sense that if God made us He can help us through all our difficulties.  He does allow trials and difficulties into our lives.  He does that out of love.  He allows pressures to come into our lives to test us and help us grow in Him.  We need to get to the place where we can thank God for everything, even the seemingly bad things that come along.  He allows this in order that we become more and more like Christ.  So, we must look for the lessons in whatever we are going through and ask God to reveal to us how we are to deal with it and grow in Him. 

Rom 8:28-29 NASB And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. 29 For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren;

The Chemical Imbalance Hoax

It’s very disturbing to me that so-called professionals would take advantage of vulnerable people because of the love of money, greed, and selfishness.
