Doctors tell schizophrenics they will never get well, Abram Hoffer, MD, PhD

In this audio clip from 2005, Abram Hoffer, MD, PhD says that the standard mantra that psychiatrists tell schizophrenic patients is, "You will never get well. You will never get off medication. And you will never finish high school."
To me, this is exactly what modern medicine does with blood pressure, with cholesterol, with diabetes, and often, with anxiety and depression.
They tell people, "You will have to take these drugs for blood pressure... cholesterol... etc. every day for the rest of your life."
As noted in the 1993 book "Coronary Heart Disease: The Dietary Sense and Nonsense, an evaluation by scientists", doctors become the unwitting salesmen for drug companies.
They assume they have been given the scientific facts, when instead, much of the research is nothing more than propaganda for the drug companies.
Dr. Hoffer has noted that with proper nutrition, shelter, respect and high doses of certain nutrients like niacin, the recovery rate in new schizophrenics is as high as 90% vs 0% with drugs alone.
One reason modern psychiatry has failed to recognize the brilliance of Dr. Hoffer’s nutritional therpy for schizophrenia is they believe the no one ever gets well.
