I was diagnosed with Schizoaffective disorder 7 years ago. It has been challenging and I had no hope and was lost.
Then I found Brisbane North Orthomolecular clinic and was started on Primer undermethlating capsules and memory formular to help with copper toxicity and undermethlation and improve memory. I have found after around 2 weeks that I feel better and my dreams can actually come true. I can do normal things like shopping and driving. These tasks where impossible, I had anxiety and no concentration. I am no longer angering and arguing with family. We get along better I like helping out. I am getting up with the sun. As I use to sleep in in the mornings. My days would blend but now my weekends are full of things I like doing. My inner tension and sense of doom are gone; I’m less suspicious/ paranoid of others and have new internal feelings regarding my sense of self. I want to love and share with people. Before I would always try and find the exit.
It's such early days and it is amazing I can feel better again. I am so excited to reveal the person I will become at the end of this journey.
I've learnt Chemical imbalances just mean you’re sick. You can get better which is what Johnny taught me and I believe him. I have hopes that I will be a contributing member of society. If I relied on drugs like antipsychotics alone I would still be sick with no improvement. Orthomolecular medicine is the way to do it and Johnny can do that. Johnny is such a great person he knows what it is like to suffer and has immense loving understanding and a kind heart. He knows the challenges that being sick makes and has the knowledge to get you better. You’re the best Johnny

Hi johnny. Just letting you know I am getting better. My inner tension has stopped. I am shopping for food and driving the car. I can go shopping easier. I am starting to get along with family better and achieving small wins like talking to people. I need to keep in mind however that talking about my experience and hallucinations may still course stigma and judgment. I need to keep it to myself.
Some people judge straight away. .
I can remember touch typing, I am comfortable driving .
intuition and peace are getting better . I also tried to contact a special friend. I hope she still has the same number , i can always try facebook. Anyway just wanted to let you know. Thanks for your help what you do is amazing thanks J.

My father was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s about 15 years ago. He was prescribed the antipsychotic drug Risperidone by his GP in order to 'keep him under control'. It soon became obvious that the GP had no idea about geriatric medicine, didn't know the variety of ways to treat this mental illness (other than experimenting with the blending of drugs and chemicals) and showed very little care or respect for father’s dignity. Needless to say, I removed my father from the care of his long term GP.
Dad became a resident of a local Care Facility Dementia ward on the 11/ 02/2015 and then fell under the care of another local GP. In October of that same year I met Johnny at a mutual friend’s wedding. After a couple of discussions with Johnny and a time frame of six months, I had dad's bloods done and then started him on supplements blended specifically for him, by Your Solution Compounding Pharmacy in Brendale.
Why did I hold off for six months? The answer is simple; because I was skeptical and scared and I didn’t want to do anything ‘different’ because it might harm my father or bring ridicule upon me.
As it was, an enrolled nurse showed obvious disdain for the way I had chosen to care for my father’s mental health (she didn’t like the way the capsules smelled) and the GP he was under at the Nursing Home never cooperated with Johnny’s requests. The GP also openly eye-rolled me about dad’s supplements and questioned the fortnightly B12 injections, instead of monthly. That was the total of things needed to keep my father calm and free from anxiety: Six capsules a day and a fortnightly B12 injection.
Before taking the supplements dad was down to remembering and writing the first four letters in his surname (which is 10 letters long). After about two month, dad’s memory had improved so much that he was able to writing down eight letters of the ten! He also started to initiate conversations and reply to questions which was something he hadn't done for years!
Twelve weeks after starting the supplements I had a meeting with the head of nursing and the diversional therapist at the care facility. I wanted to know how things were going with dad from their point of view and if they had noticed any improvement in my father’s state of mind like I had. The very first thing the Head of Nursing said to me was how my father was upsetting one or two of their care staff. I was obviously concerned about this. Up until 12 weeks earlier, Dad had been a very obliging resident in the ward, doing everything asked of him and generally causing no concern, shuffling around in his own world and obeying their every request. Now, things had changed, he was making up his own mind as to whether or not he wanted to do as they requested and started speaking his mind a little more. That made me cry, as THAT was EXACTLY was who my father was.
Just before Christmas 2017, the enrolled nurse whom I mentioned earlier, contacted me to tell me that my father’s supplements had completely run out. I was speechless. If they were medications for any chemical drug, running them down to nothing would never have happened, but this was the situation I found myself and my father in. It took a month for me to organise a prescription from Johnny and get the supplements back into his system.
In that month my father’s state of mind swiftly went downhill. The poor darling couldn’t even put two words together that made sense, was struggling to move and was obviously failing to comprehend what was going on around him.
In hindsight, the situation was a blessing in disguise. The care facility staff (including the EN) now saw for themselves the difference in my father WITHOUT the supplements and all could now appreciate that I had made the right call in the treatment of my father’s mental health. At this time dad’s GP left and he is now under the care of another. The care facility management is now fully aware that if this situation or any situation occurs again, because a staff member doesn’t agree with the choices I have made about caring for the mental health of my father, I will be contacting the Health Ombudsman and making a formal complaint against the facility and any staff involved.
If you have any further questions about my experience with Johnny and what he does, please feel free to contact Johnny and he will forward my contact details on.
I thank God I was brave enough to step out of my comfort zone and trust Johnny, as dad turned 93 in January 2018 and he is happy and healthy.

" I was referred to Johnny Atman from a good friend who's passion is mental health education and wellness, after I told her of the struggle I was on with anti depressants and other labels for medical conditions, Since that initial meeting it was identified I required a test for pyrolle disorder which later tested positive I never heard of it before. It confirmed a lot of habits symptoms that iI had or labels given to me by my doctors and specialists in the past, but normal GP's only treat the symptoms and not the root cause. Johnny recommended a strategy that my body was naturally deprived of zinc and other proteins, and I noticed changes in motivation , clearer thinking , and better problem solving skills. It was a catalyst that I stopped taking Cymbalta which I was on a high dose 120 mg cold, 75 days ago. That's not an easy thing to do, considering if I stop taking them or missed a dose I experienced Migraines, Brain zaps and felt mentally spaced out, I could not function day to day. Mr GP was very impressed that I needed a low dose. The truth is as of 21/7/2017 I have been off Cymbalta cold for 75 days. It was a game changer for me, now I need to work on bugs in my gut and my teeth from the damage Cymbalta did. My advice whatever mental health condition you have , if you feel you are on meds and feel the meds are dumbing you down , or not improving your life outlook,or have a gut feeling something is not right, don't ignore that gut feeling, make a appointment to see Mr Johnny, he knows his stuff at a genetic / cellar level of issues in your body" .

Does anyone know why it means to feel like you were just hit by a bus? Can someone understand the awful feeling that all your beautiful, normal life is crumbling, that you are loosing fast one of the most precious think in your life and you can’t do much about it but watch and suffer and follow instructions without sense? Although it is extremely hard to express the real immense shock/horror feeling, this is close to how I felt one evening in march 2017.
My son D who is in his early 20s, who grow up as normal as possible, enjoying life, studying hard to become a doctor came home one evening confused, agitated and extremely psychotic. It lasted 3 hours, and he returned to normal. All medical investigations appeared to be normal, no drugs involved, no past family history of mental illness. This episode repeated in 6 weeks, only this time he deteriorated and ended up in a mental hospital for weeks. He could not sleep for almost 2 weeks, at all, despite being treated with maximum doses of sedatives and antipsychotics. At this point I was told there is nothing to be done, just start the treatment for mental illness and accept the fact that there is no cause or cure for such condition, and he will have this diagnostic for the rest of his life. I can not accept such theory. No cause? No cure? I'm a health practitioner myself and this theory just sounded unbelievable. After some search outside the box, I learned of Orthomolecular treatments, an approach that looks at the individual as a whole, and this is how I found about Johnny and The Brisbane North Orthomolecular Clinic.
When I first spoke to Johnny Atman, I found hope again, I found answers to many unanswered questions by main stream psychiatric doctors, and this approach to treat deficiencies and toxicity in order to restore health made a lot of sense. Immediately we started to supplement my son with vitamins and minerals. It was difficult to do any investigations as he was kept in this hospital under treatment order with no rights. We had no right to do a blood test, no right to do an MRI or EEG, or a hair analyses, as all this “may disturb him further”. However, the doctors pushed for 12 ECT treatments under general anaesthetic, which only God knows how we managed to avoid. Going to court knowing that he has no rights to decide treatment for himself, and family has no rights to refuse or choose his treatment was one of the frightening experiences of our life.
Thanks to Johhny and his knowledge , today my son is on the road to recovery. As soon as he showed signs of improvement, he was sent home and we started extensive investigations, treatment tailored to his particular deficiencies and toxicity, and the results are amazing. As the psychiatrist herself stated, he is recovering “miraculously”. We found out that my son had been deficient in many essential minerals involved in regulation of neurotransmitters, he had oxidative stress and genetic tendencies to slow detoxification.
As a health practitioner myself, from the medical point of view i found this experience disheartening. It is sad to see that this days medicine rely on toxic medication to mask the symptoms, and further damage the body. It feels like there is no desire to find the cause of altered health conditions, nor to search for cures, but heavy medicated with toxic pills and barbaric approaches such as ECT. We need more people like Johnny Atman who are truly interested to find the cause and treat underlining conditions in order restore health.
I know for sure deep in my heart that the treatments recommended by Johnny Atman are improving my son’s health overall, and not only he feels better, but he is able to return to school, to work and have a normal life again. We are forever grateful to have come in contact with Brisbane North Orthomolecular Clinic. Highly recommend to all who want to heal their body and mind.
