This is the third of three lectures that Dr. Cady did in Sao Paulo, Brazil, for Laboratorio Great Plains. Dr. Cady dispenses with the "Dopamine hypothesis of schizophrenia" quickly, and notes that the most powerful drug for schizophrenia, clozapine, is actually only a weak blocker at that receptor. Using the concepts of Dale Bredesen, MD, Dr. Cady advances the idea that there is no "one magic bullet" approach to the treatment of schizophrenia, but that, rather, multiple possibile causes of schizophrenia exist, multiple nutritional laboratory values exist, multiple other physiological perturbations exist (including gluten sensitivyt), and that the thoughtful practitioner's approach should be to attempt to identify, integrate, and address all possible causes and exacerbating influences on the causes, and treatments of schizophrenia. Obviously, this is not a comprehensive treatment on the subject - which would take days - but does scratch the surface at other ways to look at schizophrenia and approach its treatment.
