As I researched the above supplements I gave my daughter a few of them every day and noticed a huge improvement in her cognition. Especially from flax seed oil, b complex and sarcosine. Adding a good amount of daily protein helped too. I did extra research and found government support studies for homeopathic remedies and I found a doctor that specialized in schizophrenia. He was able to tell me a specific remedy for her and by the grace of all that is Holy, he picked the perfect remedy. She is no longer taking anything at all, as homeopathics can cure some people. Look for Dr. K.S. Gopi on linkedin who teaches and practices from India, he is the best there is.

I gave my son the homeopathic pills that dr Gopi prescribed for him but the only problem is that my son did not take them regularly and has stopped taking them all together now as he believes they are not good for him . Some days he feels they are good and other days not . Hard one ! i wish he would take them and other vitamins but his mood is different every day just like with his food .

Dr Daniel Lodge has developed a stem cell treatment that so far works perfectly on lab animals and there are plans in the near or distant future for the solution to eventually be available to patients. Maybe in 10-20 years. There is so much promise in stem cell therapy and the link above is for those that want to see different sites of this wonderful doctor and his work in the realm of schizophrenia and highly respected in the orthodox medicine, meaning that he is not a naturopathic doctor.
It raises a thought that taking supplements can increase personal stem cell production could be of great value and we found this to be very helpful.

Once his work is ready it will not be available directly from him but through your own town doctor. He is a researcher.

Omega-3 fatty acids may prevent the development of full-blown schizophrenia in people who are at high risk of the disease, new research suggests.

What’s more, omega-3s seemed to prevent the study participants from developing psychosis for several years after people stopped taking them, according to the study.

(Tyrodep) rich in amino acids

UK Researchers have developed a drink that may improve the effectiveness of anti-psychotic medications for illness such as mania and schizophrenia.

Funded by the biomedical research charity The Wellcome Trust, the team from the Department of Psychiatry at Oxford University found that supplementing medication with a drink (Tyrodep) rich in amino acids helps to moderate the increased chemical levels in the brain that underlie some psychotic symptoms.

The addition of the drink to medication may improve the medication’s beneficial effects while reducing unwanted side-effects, leading to improved treatment compliance in the future. According to Professor Guy Goodwin, leader of the Oxford research team, “The drink we’ve developed, when taken alongside medication, has proven to be a real step forward. It may be both more acceptable to patients and help to reduce the unwanted side effects people get from their treatment. Hopefully it will allow them to get on with their lives.”

The Stanley Medical Research Institute in the United States is now working with Professor Goodwin to develop a more widely available therapy. We spoke with Dr. Goodwin in the Summer of 2004 and work progresses, but new test results are not expected for some time (this research takes time)

D-serine for Schizophrenia

D-serine is an amino acid that can be made in the body. It plays a role in metabolism, and acts as a “helper” molecule to open receptors (“gates” across cell walls) in the brain. Having the “gate” open makes a brain cell more likely to become active. It is thought that D-serine may therefore have a role in memory
