Dr. Clancy McKenzie, M.D., Founder of New Web Portal, ALTERNATIVEapa.com, Identifies Infant/Child Separation Trauma as Setting Stage for Later Onset of Schizophrenia
Date:11/16/2015

One of the world’s foremost experts on schizophrenia and mental health, Dr. Clancy McKenzie, M.D., asserts that biological psychiatry is a myth disproven, and that biological change is the result and not the cause of the mental disease process, detailed on the newly launched website, http://www.ALTERNATIVEapa.com.

“At the ALTERNATIVE American Psychiatric Association, we have identified unsuspected infant separation traumas that correlate with the later development of serious mental and emotional disorders,” said the founder, Dr. Clancy McKenzie, M.D. “We have proven that while biological change is present, it is the result and not the cause of the disease process,” said McKenzie.

Dr. Clancy McKenzie is a graduate of the University of Michigan Medical School, and trained at the Menninger School of Psychiatry, the Philadelphia Psychiatric Center and the Philadelphia Psychoanalytic Institute. In 2001, he was awarded Temple University’s Nelsen and Winnie Mandela’s Humanitarian Award for his outstanding devotion to patients suffering from the effects of schizophrenia.

According to Dr. McKenzie, “More overwhelming than war trauma to a soldier is separation from mother to a baby, because for as long as mammals populated the earth, separation from mother has meant death! Then instead of a loud noise precipitating the flashback, it is separation from some other “most important person” (husband, wife, girlfriend, boyfriend or group) which precipitates the initial step back in time, and instead of combat reality and behavior, it is infant reality and behavior that we see. This represents a partial return to the earlier mind/brain reality movements level of affective expression and anatomic sites in the brain that were active and developing at the precise time of the original traumas. Thus the earlier developmental brain structures become reactivated, while the later developmental ones undergo disuse atrophy.”

“Usually the early trauma is not even recognized,” writes Dr. McKenzie. “Often it is the birth of a sibling, or travel to another country, or the working mother and daycare. It can be almost anything. The baby is very sensitive to what it experiences as a threat of separation because for as long as mammals populated the earth, separation from mother has meant death.”

He states that while it is easy to identify biological change, there have been no attempts to determine whether that change is the cause or the result of the disease process. “This is an egregious scientific error,” he said. “No scientist would presume that correlation means causation! Yet all biological psychiatry is predicated upon making that mistake!”

In the finding that unsuspected infant/child separation traumas in the first two years of life correlate with the later development of schizophrenia, Dr. McKenzie asserts, "This has been confirmed through independent research on the data from thousands of people who have suffered from the illness."

Dr. McKenzie is opposed to SSRI anti-depressants, which he contends markedly increase the chance for violence and suicide. He also suggests that the tragic episodes of mass rampage shooters committing violence may be better understood – and treated – through an understanding of the early childhood causes of illnesses such as schizophrenia.

Dr. McKenzie asserts that pharmacological treatments of mental disorders that have been biologically inferred, have been a disaster. “Neuroleptic (anti-psychotic) medications shorten the life span by 25 years on average, and instead of 5% developing Alzheimer’s, it’s tragically 50 to 85%, and with SSRI antidepressants, there are 3 to 4 times as many committing suicide,” he said.

“Our cumulative findings gathered over 45 years have shown us that schizophrenia has its origins in the first 18 months of life. Other mental conditions like schizoaffective disorder has its origin between 19-21 months, bipolar disorder peaks at 22 months, and other depressions with psychotic features extend up to 24 months. Non-psychotic depression has an age range-of-origin from 24 through 34 months.”

“For example, treatment may include temporary separation,” said Dr. McKenzie. “The problem is that after a shift to infant mind/brain reality, any interaction with original, nuclear family is in a parent-to-infant relationship and keeps the person locked into the infant mind. But with total separation – for a period of time – the whole process can simply disappear!”
