I blame modern medicine

The story of an employee of one of the Moscow clinics: “She’s 11 years old, my granddaughter. And it almost all his life complained that her head hurt. Then she had the voice she had heard. But we long not speak about it and only then began to complain. Told me that hears my mother’s voice, if we yell at them. Two months treated. Here, and now all glory to God.

In the treatment of this girl I used psychiatric drugs, and harmless songs, as if pieces of protein molecules that have no relationship to psychotropic drugs. As you can see, it was enough to get her back to normal life. Now let’s try to dream, what would happen to this child if her parents went the usual route and took the daughter to a child psychiatrist.

So, early infantile schizophrenia. This is the diagnosis that immediately arise in the mind of doctors. Is hospitalization in a psychiatric hospital. It is the neuroleptics. Antipsychotics in a child of ten years will cause depression of the main functions. It would be difficult to think, difficult to say. Disturbed coordination of movements.

Prehistoric and primitive society.

Modern knowledge of prehistoric medicine is based primarily on the study of fossil remains of prehistoric man and his guns; some information also provides practice of a number of surviving primitive peoples. Fossils are traces of such lesions of the skeleton as bone deformities, fractures, osteomyelitis, osteitis, tuberculosis, arthritis, rickets and osteoma. No data on other diseases, but most likely almost all modern disease existed in prehistoric times.

Primitive medicine was based on the assumption of a supernatural cause of the disease, namely malicious influence of evil spirits or sorcerers. Therefore, the treatment consisted of magical spells, charms, chants and various elaborate rituals. Evil spirits had to scare off a noise to deceive masks or change the name of the patient. Mainly used sympathetic magic (based on the belief that man can supernaturally influence of his name or representing its subject, such as an image).
