ECT, EST, Electroshock, Electroconvulsive Therapy, brain damage, memory loss, electric shock, shock treatment, ECT Anon, ECT Anonymous, damage.
They are terms which link individuals who have shared the same experience: powerful electric shocks through their brains which has profoundly damaged them. ECT Anonymous have carried out a survey of hundreds of their members to see what damage has been done to them by psychiatrists. The results are horrifying.
Three quarters of respondents reported that electroconvulsive therapy or shock treatment had been completely ineffective at curing the initial condition. Most respondents did however report loss of memory, impaired concentration, impaired organisational skills, impaired language/writing skills, panic attacks, claustrophobia, agoraphobia, fear, panic attacks, fear of doctors and hospitals since receiving ECT (electroconvulsive therapy or shock treatment). ECT had also caused muscle spasms, ME, vision problems, palpitations, headaches, joint and muscle pains, high blood pressure, bowel problems in some patients. Some of those who had received electroconvulsive therapy (electroshock, EST, shock treatment, ECT) reported stress ulcers, anorexia, lupus, altzheimer's, Brain haemorrhage, renal disease, epileptic fits, angina and thyroid problems.
Whichever way you look at it, ECT (electronconvulsive therapy) is an extremely dangerous treatment and very barbaric.
ECT, EST, Electroshock, Electroconvulsive Therapy are all terms which stand for the barbarism of psychiatrists and the society which allows it to continue.
ECT (Electro-convulsive treatment) or Shock Treatment consists of applying up to 400 volts to the brains of mental patients. It is supposed to be a last-resort treatment for severe depression. However, survey after survey have shown that it is not used as a last resort, and that its use is abused regularly. Although it is commonly promoted as a life-saver by preventing suicides, research studies have shown that it does not prevent suicides, but there is evidence that people have committed suicide to avoid this treatment. There has always been plenty of evidence about the damage caused by ECT it has just been ignored by psychiatrists and governments. Maybe, this time, the government will listen and put a stop to this barbarism. If not, then let's hope that the media take enough of an interest and that the public force the government into action.
