9780692532430: Codex Alternus: A Research Collection Of Alternative and Complementary Treatments for Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder and Associated Drug-Induced Side Effects (Revised Edition)

This is not a book on how to utilize medications, diagnose disease, or treat patients. Codex Alternus is a book with a plethora of non-drug treatments for schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and medication-induced side effects. The book covers therapies that include natural antipsychotics, herbs, vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, antioxidants, mind-body therapies, prayer and spiritual healing, biofeedback, transcranial stimulation, light therapy, and many, many, more. Many therapies in Codex Alternus have been used in the field of mental health for decades and many other evidence-based therapies have been buried in psychiatric literature on medical databases and not been exposed to the mainstream public before. The book has nearly 900 scholarly citations and summaries--covers over 500 different complementary and alternative therapies which are cited in medical literature--many which are from peer-reviewed journals. The book is designed to spark ideas and be used as a reference tool for clinicians and researchers. It is also an ideal book for those in mental health product development. The book can also be used by care givers and psychiatric patients when proper research is conducted before choosing therapies and utilizing them. The book highlights the conclusions to these scientific medical articles and allows the reader insight into new and traditional therapies, novel, and experimental therapies, and older early 20th century treatments. The reader will truly be amazed at how many evidence-based choices they have for clinical use and product development. Codex Alternus is an easy-to-reference book, with complete citations: PubMed identification numbers, digital object identifier numbers, and publisher names. This book will help many clinicians, researchers, and inventors, as well as care givers and patients.

Review :

I consider Dion Zessin to be a member of what I call the pantheon of citizen researchers. He shares this distinction others I have so-labeled such as a city planner named George Eby, a mother named Karen Serousi, and a geologist named Harold Foster, all of whom made significant contributions towards the assessment and treatment  in spite of, or, perhaps because they were not constrained by existing dogma.

Dion may not have the letters after his name, but like many of us, he has, as they say, “skin in the game.”  And he has meticulously summarized a huge body of the research literature, providing a compendium of interventions for what he and the mainstream still call mental disorders. (In my most recent books I call them biobehavioral syndromes.) His book is a first of its kind. It provides a useful reference to professionals and patients alike. From my perspective, the studies he has found show us just how culture-bound our diagnoses and treatments are.

The abstracts generally show the results of interventions, but rarely the reasons for them.  Still, I was rewarded to find two studies supporting the use of agonists for a receptor called the alpha 7 nicotinic cholinergic receptor in psychosis. This may seem esoteric—even far fetched to some, but these studies support a hypothesis in one of my books that links infections to dysfunctional GABA receptors and psychosis.  Other findings support the role of  free radicals in psychopathology, suggesting, to my way of thinking, the need for targeted treatments for oxidative stress.

When health providers can match the relevant biological markers with symptoms that transcend the labels, we will see a positive transformation in outcomes.   Only  with proper assessment can curative effective treatments be found. We aren’t there yet, but this book may help us get there faster.
