Sex hormone relieves schizophrenia: “Recent studies have suggested the hormone also has a protective effect against schizophrenia, which could explain why women tend to get the disease later in life and less severely than men. But the link has not been explained or demonstrated in patients.”
If it is as easy as oestrogen therapy then it tends to suggest that a mental condition can be related to chemistry and body make up. Not all the time,perhaps, but if hormone therapy is helping the symptoms of schizophrenia then it is less drastic than other treatments available and perhaps suggests when the physical make up of a body is out of whack then it has a bad impact on the mind. This study is a tremendously good breakthrough and will perhaps unlock even better treatments and understanding of a very debilitating disease.
