An alternative, spiritual and new age interpretation of Schizophrenia

Author(s): Beyer AC*

This paper is an attempt to interpret the illness of schizophrenia from a new viewpoint. It starts with a background that shows the importance of the spiritual perspective at the history of the illness. It goes on to present an interpretation of the positive and negative symptoms generally in schizophrenia and the common conditions of developing it. It then presents an overview over some symptoms. It connects some of the symptoms to the spiritual or new age literature, where these are known occurrences without necessarily a diagnostic impact. It then presents some additional common ‘symptoms’ that have not yet been explained in this literature. It concludes with some general recommendations for either treatment or self-help.
