Inside this Book – Dr. John Haygarth was puzzled. All across the English city of Bath—and in several scattered pockets around the Western world—something extraordinary was happening. People who had been paralyzed with pain for years were clambering out of their sickbeds and walking once again. It didn’t matter whether you had been crippled by rheumatism, or by hard physical work—the word was spreading that there was hope. You could rise. Nobody had ever seen anything like it. John knew that a company founded by an American named Elisha Perkins, from Connecticut, had announced several years before that they had discovered the solution to all kinds of pain—and there was only one way to get it: you had to pay for the use of a thick metal rod they had patented, which the company named a “tractor.” It had special qualities that the company explained they sadly couldn’t tell you about, because then their competitors would copy them and take all their profit. But if you needed help, one of the people trained to use the tractor would come to you at home, or to your hospital bed, and explain somberly that, just like a lightning rod draws lightning, the tractor will draw the sickness out of your body and expel it into the air. They would then run the tractor over your body without its ever touching you.
Inside this book –Lost Connections PDF Book by Johann Hari – The year after I swallowed my first antidepressant, Tipper Gore 1 —the wife of Vice President Al Gore—explained to the newspaper USA Today why she had recently become depressed. “It was definitely a clinical depression, one that I was going to have to have help to overcome,” she said. “What I learned about is your brain needs a certain amount of serotonin and when you run out of that, it’s like running out of gas.” Tens of millions of people—including me— were being told the same thing. When Irving Kirsch discovered that these serotonin-boosting drugs were not having the effects that everyone was being sold, he began—to his surprise —to ask an even more basic question. What’s the evidence, he began to wonder, that depression is caused primarily by an imbalance 2 of serotonin, or any other chemical, in the brain? Where did it come from?
