Come to the calm of a well functioning brain.
I just read an article about ECT or electoconvulsive therapy in Psychology Today. We have been using this form of therapy for the last 80 years. According this this article this form of therapy should be stopped immediately until further research has been conducted. Dr. John Read from the UK published in Ethical Human Psychology and Psychiatry their analysis of the 11 studies that have been conducted on ECT. All of the studies were done before 1985 and in a poor manner. There is opposition to this study saying that it has saved lives and helped with depression. The authors of this paper could find not evidence to support these statements. ECT does cause memory loss and impaired thinking. Perhaps that is why the patient is seen as improved. I have had my concerns about this form of therapy. It is very strong and debilitating.
LENS by contrast is a gentle effective treatment that shows significant improvement with depression and anxiety. If you know of anyone that is having trouble please send them my way.
