"Schizophrenia Can Be Helped By NeuroCranial Restructuring"
  

Psychiatric conditions like depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), schizophrenia, manic-depression and psychosis are rarely effectively treated with counseling. Most of the time, psychiatric drugs are prescribed to treat these conditions. The common natural approaches are to mimic the effects of the drugs with less toxic substances that are similarly designed to change the levels of brain neurotransmitters.

I have had clinical success with depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and bipolar disorder. The schizophrenics and psychotics I have worked with have been too suspicious of me to get enough treatment to receive any major benefits.

There are abnormalities (deficiencies) in the levels of neurotransmitters of the brain in the psychiatric-chemical model used to describe these treatment techniques. The drugs raise the level of the target neurotransmitter throughout the brain. This allows the areas of the brain previously deficient in the target neurotransmitter to have sufficient levels of neurotransmitter. The psychiatric condition is often controlled in this manner.

In the rare situation of a true neurotransmitter deficiency state, these medications perform brilliantly. They address the cause of the situation, the lack of neurotransmitter manufacture.

But most people on such medications experience side effects. Often the side effects are involved with functions that are not related to the actual complaint. A depressed person taking Prozac, for instance, can feel less depressed and have sexual impotence from the medication. These are problems of over-dosing the brain with the target neurotransmitter in the areas that had sufficient supply previously.

When one area of the brain has enough neurotransmitter and another area of the brain has too little or too much, this is not a problem of manufacture. It is a problem with uneven distribution of neurotransmitters.

The chemicals of the brain flow in liquid blood and cerebrospinal fluid. The flow of fluid is determined partially by the shape of the vessel. The brain resembles a sponge in ways. A round sponge can be put into a cubical container, but it won't hold as much water in the areas that are squished to fit in the box. Likewise, a brain will not hold normal amounts of fluids when it is in an imperfectly shaped box.

With NCR, the shape of the skull gradually moves closer and closer to its optimal design. As the skull optimizes, the fluid flow characteristics of the skull, and the brain functions that are controlled by the fluid dynamics, optimize as well.
