Looking for an Adult or Child Psychiatrist in Sandton?

Psychiatrist SandtonIf you are searching for local psychiatric services in Sandton you may want to think again; here's why. Today, in South Africa, our society has impressively progressed in many areas. But, at the same time there are many ways in which our society today in South Africa, and more locally in Sandton, is not as well off. Education is on a fast-rate decline. The crime rate is on a long-term rise. Attempts to tackle drug addiction have failed utterly, causing further addiction to other more dangerous drugs. Local news headlines in the Sandton area, as well as cities and towns across South Africa and around the world, report increasing numbers of psychotic, irrational acts of violence which have no motive and cannot be understood. Yet in our enlightened time, treatment of the problems of the mind remains an area of dark, fearsome ignorance.

Psychiatrists worldwide, nationwide, and local psychiatrists in Sandton, have never provided a science of the mind that actually cures mental illness. Instead, psychiatry uses non-scientific and unproven harmful methods to treat mental health problems such as electroconvulsive therapy (shocking the brain with electricity) and prescribing intensely destructive psychiatric drugs that alter the mind for the worse. Medical evidence has established that these prescribed psychiatric medications, actually do, create killers. Sexual abuse in therapy is well known to be destructive, yet psychiatric doctors and psychologists sexually abuse their patients at a staggering rate. They commit healthcare insurance fraud at much higher rates than any other profession and many come from the dregs of medical school classes. It's a fact that local Sandton psychiatrists near you actually create even worse mental health problems in the Sandton area.

Need a Local Psychiatrist in Sandton for a Psychiatric Evaluation?

Psychiatrist in SandtonIt is important to know that local psychiatry in Sandton and the surrounding areas consists, not of methods of healing, but of harmful practices that no self-respecting medical professional would ever call a treatment. As author Edward Shorter stated in A History of Psychiatry, psychiatrists have had "a rather poor reputation among their medical colleagues as the dull and the second rate." Despite massive funding increases psychiatrists in Gauteng and worldwide have failed to define, let alone cure, the causes of mental disorders.

Although it appears that modern psychiatry is scientific, it still fumbles about with damaging psychiatric treatments and a complete absence of any systematic method to effectively treat mental health. The absence of any actual scientific system for diagnosing psychiatric problems by psychiatric doctors contributes to psychiatry's bad reputation. A psychiatric assessment in Sandton by a psychiatrist or psychologist is simply nothing but dangerous guesswork at the expense of their Sandton patients.

How Does a Sandton Psychiatrist Diagnose Mental Disorders?

Local psychiatrists in Sandton and South Africa as a whole, use a list of invented mental disorders to compare or judge with against a patient's own symptoms of mental health problems. The most commonly used list of mental disorders for psychiatric diagnosis is compiled in a book called the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). In 1952 the DSM listed only 112 entries of mental disorders but the number has increased dramatically to 374 in 1994, and is still increasing today. WHY?

A 2006 study published by university public health researchers revealed that every psychiatric expert involved in the development of the mood disorders listed in the DSM-IV had financial ties with pharmaceutical drug companies, before or after the book was published. This report was the first to officially document the wide-ranging and incestuous financial relationship between the pharmaceutical companies, psychiatrists, and other mental health industry personnel responsible for the manual. In effect, the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders is a grab bag of items that the mental health industry can charge for.

What You Need to Know About Psychiatric Assessments in Sandton

Described as diagnostic tools, the DSM and other compiled lists of a similar nature of "mental disorders" are not only used for diagnosing mental illness and prescribing treatments to Sandton patients, but are also used to resolve child custody battles, support court testimonies, modify education, and used in discrimination cases based on alleged psychiatric disability. But there is no science to these diagnostic systems despite huge amounts of Sandton taxpayer's money being poured into local psychiatry in SA. If you have a psychiatric test by a psychiatrist in Sandton, then visit a different psychiatric doctor in your area, high probability is that both psychiatrists will give different evaluations and prescribe different treatments. Psychiatrists and psychologists base their evaluations on what they think is wrong with a patient and NOT on any scientific cause. They treat a list of symptoms and NOT real causes.

Need a Sandton Psychiatrist for Psychiatric Treatment?

Best Psychiatrist in SandtonThrough unscientific diagnoses, stigmatizing labelling, easy seizure and commitment laws and brutal, depersonalizing treatments, every year millions of people around the world fall into psychiatry's coercive system. And too many individuals and governments assume that psychiatrists understand and practice mental healing, when in fact they don't.

The questions used by Sandton psychiatrists for patient mental health screening and disorder evaluations are not reliable to diagnose any psychiatric condition. If you visit a nearby psychiatrist in the Sandton area you will usually have a brief consultation where you are told what is wrong with you without making any physical checks. A psychiatric report by a psychiatrist or psychologist recommending a course of treatment is not based on any valid diagnosis. Before accepting any treatment or medication by a psychiatrist in Sandton, ask them what physical examinations they are going to perform in order to diagnose you. More than likely they won't perform any physical check, simply because they don't know what causes mental illness.
