Fascinating article, The Insanity Virus, in the November online Discover magazine describes studies that show that schizophrenia and MS may be from viruses that trigger the Toxoplasmosis and CMV viruses that most of us already carry. It's a long read that got more interesting (for me) on pages 3 and 4.
This article makes personal sense to me because I've been around many people with AIDS whose impaired immune systems allowed the CMV and Toxoplasmosis to flourish and make them psychotic for the rest of their lives. I'm interested to see more about this research trend.
It's also interesting because last month at the EMDRIA conference I just heard Paul W. Miller MD, a Northern Ireland-based Psychiatrist, talk about how he has cured psychotic delusions in schizophrenic clients using psychotherapy that includes EMDR.
Schizophrenia caused by a Retro-Virus? A very new und uncommon perspetive… im not a professional, so i can´t judge about it, but it sounds a little bit strange for me
It may be like when researchers discovered that ulcers were caused by a bacterium.
