Default Peter Breggin – Electroshock...

I’ve found a real book on the internet by one of the most respected psychiatrists in the anti-psychiatry movement. Peter Breggin – Electroshock it’s brain-disabling effects (1979) - 16.5 MB, 215 pages: http://www.ectresources.org/ECTscien...buse__Etc_.pdf
This book is mostly about electroshock treatment (Electro Convulsive Therapy - ECT).

In his book Breggin debunks the so-called “scientific evidence” that electroshocks have beneficial effects and its adverse effects are only temporary (these are myths). In reality electroshocks have only adverse effects on the physical and mental state of the victim.
The most frequent disabilities caused by ECT are memory loss (retrograde amnesia) and inability to learn (anterograde mental dysfunction). There is evidence of structural damage in the cortex of the left frontal lobe caused by electroshocks.

The short-term effects are even more drastic.
On awakening, the victim suffers from an acute brain syndrome: a severe headache, nausea, and physical exhaustion.
Typically the victim feels "out of touch" with reality and helpless and frightened. Victims suffer from extreme confusion, bewilderment, emotional labiality, and hallucinations (delirium).
If ECT is given intensively, neurologic collapse occurs. Some victims cannot take care of their daily needs anymore, have to be spoon fed for days, and become incontinent.

The experiments on lab animals confirm the destructive effects of electroshocks.
Animals showed vessel wall changes, gliosis, and irreversible damage to nerve cells. They showed signs of dead and dying cells throughout the brain.
Virtually all brain biochemistry is disrupted by ECT.
Some human victims became brain death from electroshocks, autopsies showed that the brain damage in these humans was comparable to the effects in lab animals.

For me the most interesting topic in this book is the explanation that ECT is used to torture victims of psychiatry into a nice and docile state.
Psychiatry has a history of terror and intimidation to make the victims easier to handle. Before the 1930s the victims were whipped, strapped into spinning chairs, dunked into cold water, poisoned with toxic agents, bled, confined in straitjackets, or kept in solitary confinement.

In the 1930s cleaner approaches were sought that wouldn’t be so evidently damaging.
In the 1930s, psychiatrists experimented with insulin coma and concluded that the brain-damage made the victims “better” patients. In this period surgical destruction of the highest centres of the brain became popular (lobotomy). Also in the 1930s convulsive therapies were developed.
In the 1950s, major tranquilizers were developed with even “better” results.
Another technique tried by the “humanitarian” psychiatrists was refrigerating the lower body temperatures with 10 to 20 degrees, producing deep coma. One victim died, but the therapy was highly recommended: they became pacified and calm.

Electroshock torture was recommended for patients who "cannot be controlled by such means as restraint and sedation”. After being tortured with ECT they became "better": more cooperative and manageable on the ward.
When the victim looses the ability to take care of their daily needs, he asks for help (and becomes more accessible).

Peter Breggin specifically describes the torture by Michigan psychiatrist H.C. Tien that used electroshock in the late 1970’s and early 80’s to give women a new personality in what he called “family counselling”.
ECT to erase memory and personality, thereby eradicating the woman’s identity; in order to reprogram it according to a “blueprint” worked out with the interested parties prior to the electroshock torture.

Breggin estimates that in 1977, 32,000 patients per year were tortured with ECT in the USA alone. In 1972, ECT was at its peak popularity, around double of 1977.
While originally electroshocks were used to torture patients of schizophrenia; from the end of the 1970s it’s officially only used for severe psychotic depressions.
Strangely ECT is mostly used on women (more than twice the percentage of men). Maybe this is because men like their women nice and docile and in help of need.
In 2017, the practise of ECT is steadily rising.

In 1974, an incident was described where a new ECT-machine had been used for 2 years before they discovered that it was non-functional. The medical personnel didn’t notice anything unusual.
These patients were the lucky ones.

It was Morris Fishbein with his AMA who was responsible for squashing cancer cures and many inventions that were treating many diseases cheaply.
