Shocking the Brain is Bad..Duh…

A fascinating study offers evidence that shocking the brain with electricity is not a good thing. Duh…

I can’t wait to hear how biopsychiatrists rationalize this one.

Researchers surmised that soldiers who experienced the trauma of bombing had high levels of electricity produced in their brain. In turn, this electricity damaged the brain in a number of ways.

The brain damage that researchers found meet the criteria for Traumatic Brain Injury, which results in gross cognitive dysfunction, including memory loss, apathy, and a host of other abnormal functions.

This is EXACTLY what happens with Electroconvulsive Therapy (aka, ECT, Shock “Therapy”, Electroshock Treatment). Proponents of ECT have consistently denied this manifestly obvious fact, for reasons that only common sense can surmise.

They would have us believe that shocking the brain with electricity is terribly harmful when it occurs on the battlefield, but if it is done by people in lab coats to heavily sedated patients, then it is helpful. I’m not buying it.

ECT is barbaric, useless, and one of the more damaging “treatments” that psychiatry has perpetrated on the human race in its long and illustrious history.

  1. Out of curiosity, what are the “up-sides” of Shock Therapy, or supposedly claimed at least?

    Also this would lead me to believe that soldiers suffering from PTSD could have some of the stress alleviated with some sort of electricity neutralizer that would lower the ‘voltage’ of the brain.

  2. The “up-side” of ECT is the same as the “up-side” of a baseball bat to the head or insulin coma therapy: both certainly would relieve stress. All of psychiatric treatment achieves reduction of symptoms by upsetting normal brain function…essentially, damaging the brain’s normal processes.
    The idea of an electricity neutralizer is interesting…could someone who suffered ECT or the equivalent brain injury have the effects reversed by some process? I doubt it, but it is worth considering.
