Definitions for "Schizophrenia"
a significant disturbance of the mind. To diagnose Schizophrenia, Psychiatrists look for two or more of the following symptoms: delusions, hallucinations, disorganized speech, very disorganized behavior, catatonic behavior (no movement at all), little emotion (compared to normal for the person), trouble speaking, or reduced "goal-directed behavior" (trouble getting things done). Because other problems can cause these symptoms, psychiatrists look for the problems to last six months or more before they diagnose schizophrenia. Schizophrenia can usually be at least partly controlled with drugs, but there is not usually a cure.
The essential features of this disorder are the presence of characteristic psychotic symptoms during the active phase of the illness and functioning below the highest level previously achieved, and a duration of at least six months. At some phase of illness, schizophrenia always involves delusions, hallucinations, or certain characteristic disturbances in affect and the form of thought.
a mental illness that affects a person's perception of reality. Schizophrenics often exhibit disorganized thinking, delusions, and/or auditory hallucinations.

Copper toxicity and zinc depletion related to mercury toxicity may contribute to symptoms of schizophrenia.
Pfeiffer and others have postulated that excessive copper and iron and/or zinc and manganese deficiency states are primary factors in one type of schizophrenia, namely histapenia. Histaminase is a copper containing enzyme and both histaminase and ceruloplasmin can destroy histamines. Therefore, patients with high serum copper and ceruloplasmin levels have low levels of blood histamine. The histapenic individual responds to treatment which rids the body of excess copper and builds-up blood and tissue histamine. "A possible factor in some of the schizophrenias is a combined deficiency of zinc and manganese, with a relative increase in iron and copper or both. The urinary copper excretion in schizophrenics is consistently less than in normal patients; zinc plus manganese in dietary doses is effective in increasing copper elimination and reducing copper to normal levels." (Pfeiffer) Schizophrenia is not uncommon when the zinc/copper ratio is less than 3.00/l.
