Schizophrenia is most propably caused by many different organisms that infect your brain, there's not a single reason. Sometimes its cause is syphilis, sometimes another sphirochete (borreliosis), sometimes apicomplexan parasites related to malaria (toxoplasma gondii) or propably even some viruses or organisms not known to cause any disease. I'm heavily for toxoplasma being the main reason, since the parasite alters your brain chemical levels, dopamine and serotonine. Not many other organisms can do that. That is, if the theory about schizophrenic behaviour being caused by wrong levels of dopamine and or serotonine. But in any case it's 100% fact that toxoplasma alters them. The neuroleptics are entirely wrong approach on getting of from the schizophrenia symptoms. Well maybe they treat some symptoms but thats not cure. We should concentrate on working on medicine that eradicates toxoplasma. It's quite difficult to do. There is no cure at the moment, but some malaria medicines can kill most of the parasites in the brain and sending the rest temporarily to a kind of hibernation.
