Schizophrenia throughout the history - The prehistoric times
by Lena U Carlsson
The word schizophrenia is less than 100 years old, but the illness has probably accompanied mankind through its history. Schizophrenia can be traced in written documents to the old Pharaonic Egypt, as far back as the second millennium before Christ. Depression, dementia, as well as thought disturbances found in schizophrenia are described in detail in the Book of Hearts. This book is part of the Eber papyrus, named after the German Egyptologist Georg Ebers, who bought and published the papyrus in the 19th century. Heart and mind seem to have been synonymous in ancient Egypt. The psychical illnesses were regarded as symptoms of the heart and the uterus and originating from the blood vessels or from purulence, fecal matter, a poison or demons. In most cases the Egyptians apparently looked upon the mental diseases as physical illnesses.
Temple sleep therapy
The treatment comprised temple sleep, also called incubation. The ill persons spent the night in a holy place. Before falling asleep they were influenced by suggestions, in the hope of provoking dreams sent by the gods. The dreams were interpreted by priests and priestesses, who used them to get knowledge about the illnesses and curing of these. Incantations and prayers were uttered to bring forth the healing powers of the gods. The incantations included remedies of medical herbs and substances that were part of the therapy.

Thoughts can be scrambled or jump from subject to subject. Perceptions can be distorted beyond reality, causing people to see or hear things that are not there. People with schizophrenia go through periods of getting better and worse - remission and relapse. They can go for long periods of time without any symptoms, but because schizophrenia is often a chronic illness, it requires ongoing medical attention, like hypertension or diabetes.

The Chinese famine of 1959-1961 increased the risk of schizophrenia in later life from 0.84% to 2.15%, Shanghai researchers calculated. It is not clear whether it is lack of food in general or a lack of specific nutrients while in the womb that is important. The work appears in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Poor nutrition It supports the findings of previous study in Holland where schizophrenia risk was doubled among children conceived during war-related food shortages in 1944-1945. In the China study, the team from the Shanghai Jiao Tong University compared the rates of schizophrenia among those born before, during and after the famine years in the Wuhu region, which currently has a population of 62 million. Good nutrition is central to good physical and mental health

It is a highly complex condition, and scientists are not even sure if it is one disorder, or a range of disorders, with different causes. Approximately one per cent of the population develop schizophrenia during their lives. Men and women are affected equally. Schizophrenia is not, as is commonly thought, split personality. What is schizophrenia?
Schizophrenia is such a complex condition that few generalisations hold true for all people diagnosed as schizophrenic. People with acute schizophrenia may experience psychotic symptoms when they are completely unable to separate reality from unreal experiences. They may view the world as highly distorted, changeable and lacking reliable landmarks. Some patients may only have one psychotic episode, and others may have many episodes during a lifetime, but lead relatively normal lives during interim periods. Patients with chronic schizophrenia often do not fully recover normal functioning and may require long-term treatment, generally including medication, to control the symptoms.

Living with schizophrenia: It's possible with medication
Charlie Chastain says crimes such as the Capitol Hill shootings create obstacles for schizophrenics
From Medical Correspondent Rhonda Rowland October 15, 1998
Web posted at: 10:51 p.m. EDT (0251 GMT) ATLANTA (CNN) Names such as Russell Weston Jr., Theodore Kaczynski and John Hinckley Jr. evoke a frightening image of schizophrenia. But more often than not, that image is not accurate for many who suffer from the disorder. Charlie Chastain said most people are surprised to find out he has schizophrenia. He developed the tell-tale signs of the brain disease when he was 15. "He became paranoid, very paranoid, and believe it or not, that's a very hard thing to discover in a child," said his mother, Mary Ella Chastain. "When they start staying in their room, you don't necessarily know that they think people are outside the windows trying to get in." Chastain's parents were told to expect the worst.

The Dopamine Hypothesis of Schizophrenia
Anne Frederickson
Schizophrenia is a disease that has plagued societies around the world for centuries, although it was not given its formal name until 1911. It is characterized by the presence of positive and negative symptoms. Positive symptoms are so named because of the presence of altered behaviors, such as delusions, hallucinations (usually auditory), extreme emotions, excited motor activity, and incoherent thoughts and speech. In contrast, negative symptoms are described as a lack of behaviors, such as emotion, speech, social interaction, and action. These symptoms are by no means concrete. Not all schizophrenic patients will exhibit all or even a majority of these symptoms, and there is some disagreement in the psychiatric community as to the exact diagnostic criteria. In addition, there is a great deal of debate as to the causes of the disease. While some proposed causes have been proven false, such as bad parenting and poor will power

CLINICAL BRAIN DISORDERS BRANCH Homepage Who can participate? What do I have to do? ... How can I get involved? Schizophrenia is a complex brain disorder affecting thoughts and perceptions. This illness affects at least 1% of the population worldwide, regardless of race, economic condition, or geographic location. Families who have one member of the family ill with schizophrenia have a greater chance of developing this illness than families who have no relative with this illness. The scientists at the National Institute of Mental Health believe that environmental factors combined with genetic predisposition lead to the development of schizophrenia. The NIMH genetic studies focus on gathering families' genetic and environmental information to better understand what places one family member at risk and conversely, what protects other family members. To this end, family members are asked to participate in a number of procedures that help scientists measure various family characteristics to see if they run in families. Genotyping, or DNA analysis, is an important part of this process. However, families should understand that this is a very complex analysis and NIMH does not plan to provide family members with individual genetic test results. The scientists believe that future treatments and preventive methods will rely heavily on the findings of this developing study. It is for this reason that we ask families to participate. Hundreds of families are needed. The staff at NIMH invites you and your family to review this website and welcome you to call us for more information.

Schizophrenia no one cause, no simple cure
July 27, 1998
Web posted at: 6:47 p.m. EDT (2247 GMT) From CNN Medical Correspondent Dr. Steve Salvatore NEW YORK (CNN) Schizophrenia is a rare and often misunderstood disease. It is not what many think it is split or multiple personalities. The brain disorder affects about 1 percent of the world's population, including 4 million Americans. Doctors don't know exactly what causes schizophrenia, but they believe it is a combination of biological, genetic, chemical and environmental factors. Schizophrenia strikes both men and women equally, usually starting in the late teens and early 20s. Symptoms can start and disappear quickly or gradually. The symptoms vary greatly from person to person and the disease is often linked to other problems, such as substance abuse or paranoia. Many patients have trouble distinguishing between what is real and what they perceive as reality.

What Causes It? How is It Treated? ... The Center for Mental Health Services Schizophrenia is the most chronic and disabling of the severe mental disorders. More than 2 million Americans are affected by schizophrenia. Contrary to the common misconception, schizophrenia does not mean "split or multiple personality." And, although people with schizophrenia often are portrayed as violent on television and in movies, that is seldom the case. In fact, people with schizophrenia are more likely to be victims of violence than perpetrators, and they tend to be shy and socially withdrawn. The illness, which may impair a person's ability to manage emotions, interact with others, and think clearly, typically develops in the late teens or early twenties. Symptoms include hallucinations, delusions, disordered thinking, and social withdrawal. Most people with schizophrenia continue to suffer chronically or episodically throughout their lives. Even between bouts of active illness, lost opportunities for careers and relationships, stigma, residual symptoms, and medication side effects often plague those with the illness. One of every 10 people with schizophrenia eventually commits suicide.

Study: Schizophrenia linked to date, place of birth
February 25, 1999

Web posted at: 6:45 a.m. EST (1145 GMT) From Medical Correspondent Rhonda Rowland
BOSTON (CNN) Where and when children are born may play a role in whether they develop schizophrenia in later life, according to the results of a new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Danish researchers found that children born in an urban or suburban area, rather than a rural area, and those born in February or March had an increased risk of schizophrenia, a puzzling and disabling brain disorder that runs in families. The new research suggests that environmental factors, as well as genetics, may play a role in schizophrenia. "I think the important finding from this study is, yes genes are important, but environmental factors are at least as important," said Dr. E. Fuller Torrey of the Stanley Foundation Research Programs. "And we probably haven't paid enough attention to them."

My name is Jason Stuart Ratcliff. I have been struggling with schizophrenia now for about 15 years. My medication helps immensely but it doesn't make me completely well. At least I know how to handle the bad times when they come; I've been dealing with this a long time, and overall I feel that my life is good. I have my studies and art and writing to keep me content, and have a lot of hope that the worst is behind me. This site is all about mental illness, mad pride, and all things schizophrenic. I have several books for sale through Amazon and elsewhere, but there's plenty to read for free too, so kick your shoes off and enjoy.
My memoir, Rites of Passage: My Schizophrenic Youth in Mosaic, is now available. A coming-to-age memoir whose major rite of passage is a schizophrenia diagnosis. Psychosis for Ratcliff becomes as enlightening as it is agonizing. 182 pages
"Rites of Passage: My Schizophrenic Youth in Mosaic is a fascinating and insightful autobiographical account of Jason Ratcliff's experience and struggles with psychosis. Self-reflective, philosophical, extremely honest, and, at times, heartbreaking, this book is a valuable contribution to the field of human psychology. It should be required reading in every introductory psychopathology class."

Signs and Symptoms Schizophrenia is a mental illness that usually strikes in late adolescence or early adulthood, but can strike at any time in life. The signs and symptoms vary from individual to individual, but all people with the disorder show one or more of the following symptoms: Delusions : These are beliefs that are not true, such as feeling people are following or trying to hurt them, believing other people can read their minds, or beliefs that they have special powers or abilities. Hallucinations : This usually takes the form of hearing voices that are not there, but people with schizophrenia may also see, smell, taste, and feel things that are not there.

Understanding Schizophrenia
Schizophrenia is a serious brain disease. It affects people all over the world. Unlike some illnesses, the rates of schizophrenia are the same from state to state and from country to country. Whether you live in Arkansas or Zimbabwe, the statistic is the same: about 1 in every 100 people has schizophrenia. In the United States, this brain disease often appears earlier in men, by about three to four years. Otherwise, schizophrenia affects men and women equally. About seventy-five percent of people who get schizophrenia become ill between the ages of 17 and 25. Some people who later develop schizophrenia may have seemed "different" from other children at an early age. It is unusual for someone to get sick with schizophrenia after age thirty. A long time ago people had wrong thoughts about schizophrenia. They thought that schizophrenia was "all in someone's head." Today, we know the truth about schizophrenia. Schizophrenia is a brain "disease." There are differences, deep within the brain, of some people with schizophrenia. People who research schizophrenia found this out by taking detailed pictures of the brain. What still is a mystery is why people get schizophrenia. Researchers think that
