Why is Schizophrenia Considered Incurable?

I posted this on another online space in response to a question and thought I would relay it here in cases others benefit.

Question: Why is Schizophrenia Considered Incurable?

They simply consider it degenerative meaning the brain slowly degenerates (becomes atrophied) and that the symptoms can’t be eliminated or brought under an acceptable amount of control. They consider it a lost unresolvable problem which still doesn’t have an identifiable cause. They consider the patient’s brain permanently diseased.

They consider it an irreversible physical disease despite not being able to identify the “physical” cause (which is why no psychiatrist on the planet will offer you a test for your “diagnosis”).

No doubt neuroinflammation can cause at least some of its symptoms but physical causes have been known for a long time (brain tumors can cause symptoms). I don’t think Psychiatry’s focus or scope is on issues such as tumors, brain damage, inflammation etc.

It’s important to mention which symptom you are referring to when asking this question because the reality is that a psychiatric diagnosis is actually a composition of symptoms. The names of ailments have been changing throughout history including within the DSM but the symptoms have been around before psychiatry was born and for thousands of years.

Delusions (a part of the composition of schizophrenia) in my opinion are curable. I believe this due to personal experience. I have been delusional and came out of it permanently. I just simply needed time and education until I distanced myself from the false belief (I needed a lot of time). Time and education I have not experienced in a public hospital setting. They practice a rushed profit oriented chemical approach deprived of quality.

To them hallucinations are incurable because they view seeing/hearing things that other’s cant as an abnormality when in fact it is natural and occurs during your sleep. Bad dreams are no different to hallucinations. They come from the same type of entity. They consider such perceptions during wakefulness as disease/madness/becoming out of touch with reality. Rather it is natural just unfortunate and unhealthy. However such perceptions can contribute to becoming out of touch with reality when the host fuses with them. It’s the same reason OCD sufferers appear to be out of touch with reality when they fuse with obsessions/compulsions.

These perceptions can be described with the same description of a negative thought. Both negative thoughts and hallucinations are negative toxic perceptions and not physical diseases. So psychiatry views such a state as incurable and odd but this is because of the atheistic underpinning and foundations of modern psychiatry regarding such perceptions. Identifying someone as diseased for having hallucinations is like identifying someone as diseased for having bad thoughts or dreams. So it’s incurable to western psychiatry because they view/understand the whole thing wrongly.
