TAP 198 - The Chemical Imbalance Myth

This is the first Tim On Tap! In this episode I talk about how the often talked about chemical imbalance is a myth and share some insights from my recent interview with Robert Whitaker.

In this episode you will learn:

  • What is Tim On Tap?
  • Who is Robert Whitaker?
  • Why did psychiatry come about?
  • Think about why you have anxiety rather than taking a "magic pill"
  • Pills change your mood, not rewire your thinking
  • The rise of pharma sponsorship
  • 200 years ago, they prescribed healthy living, eating and exercise

Quotes:

"It's never been scientifically proven that anybody has a chemical imbalance." (3:19)
