Is A Mental Health Diagnosis Reliable or Helpful?

A mental health diagnosis is generally unreliable and does little to offer real healing options to the patient, other than support and care. Is the test for Parkinson’s definitive? How is Alzheimer’s diagnosed? Will a dementia diagnosis help the patient?

These are all realistic questions you need to ask yourself before embarking on the quest of a diagnosis. Is it reliable? Will it be helpful?

In the area of mental health disorders, there is no definitive and accurate diagnosis. Each doctor’s conclusions can vary wildly. And the medical drugs for these are generally unhelpful and often harmful.

I have recently been reading an autobiography of a successful businessman who became sick in his later years. He became obsessed with having a diagnosis. Yet, the more doctors and specialists he consulted, the more varied the diagnoses became. They varied wildly from having no mental health disorder, to having Parkinson’s disease.

It’s the same with most mental health disorders. There is no definitive test that confirms the disorder. There is no definitive test that confirms the cause of the problem. And there is little the medical establishment can do to alleviate the signs and symptoms other than suppressing them.

And the problem with suppressing your natural signs and symptoms is that it pushes the imbalance deeper into the body. This results in more serious pathology later on. For example, when you have a joint replacement, it is likely that you will later suffer with heart complications.

Certainly the joint pain was relieved, but that wasn’t life threatening, whereas a heart condition most likely is.

A mental health diagnosis can include chronic anxiety, depression, anger, a lack of ability to concentrate, forgetfulness, panic, eating disorders, bullying as well as the heavier disorders such as PTSD, autism, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, schizophrenia, and many others. There is no age barrier.

Yes all these problems have a cause. Medically, these are never examined. But they can be invaluable in helping you permanently recover. Let’s look at a few:

Lead poising is never considered, even in those people who are more exposed, such as with miners.

Other heavy metal toxicity such as mercury, cadmium, aluminium are common in certain medications at very high levels, and all can cause brain damage.

Synthetic additives in food, garden and household products, on farms which produce our food, in our water can all lead to brain damage.

Diet is rarely examined, yet by eating a balanced plant based diet, you are providing the nutrients necessary for a healthy body, allowing problems to melt away.

From children, we are generally not encouraged to follow our instincts. Yet these are part of our invaluable inner guidance system. When we consistently go against these, it is inevitable we will end up sick. Bowing to pressure or coersion against out feelings, are common and not in our best interests.

And many of the mental health disorders bleed into each other. Is there really any difference between Alzheimer’s disease and dementia? Probably not for the patient.

It’s not just the patient who suffers. The supportive family does too. Families can suffer chronic anxiety over the situation. Perhaps suffer with sleep deprivation as they worry about what to do. Many suffer financially as they struggle to provide what they feel is the best care they can.

And lets not forget all the animals who suffer horribly in research laboratories, most of which is inconclusive.

Yet there is another option. An option that doesn’t rely on a mental health diagnosis. One that relies on the signs and symptoms of the patient, which are far more personal. One that relies of what lead up to the problem. One that won’t cripple the patient or the family financially. One that has the potential of full recovery. One that can never be accused of misdiagnosis, because a diagnosis is not necessary. One that is not suppressive as it simply helps the body’s immune system recover balance. And one that uses people as test subjects, rather than our furry planet companions who are treated as objects rather than the sentient beings they are.

And this option is good homeopathic treatment. Homeopathy is an energy medicine. How perfect that is when you consider we are energy beings. Combining ongoing professional homeopathic treatment with a healthy diet that is known to restore good health in serious and chronic health issues, is I consider, unbeatable.

Don’t be obsessed by a mental health diagnosis. Instead, be obsessed by finding the best, natural way to support your body’s needs, to restore the health of your immune system, to help you fine tune your skills at recognising your inner guidance system. THAT’S worth obsessing about as the rewards are exceptional.
