The problem of schizophrenia is the balance between the consciousness and subconsciousness.The balance is violated and consciousness take advantage over subconsciousness.And when the links which made us conscious are interrupted this lead us to schizophrenia.Our mind is build to seek to what we can not reach.This mean that big endeavours being conscious lead us to schizophrenia.

Every man consist of two personality.The first is logical and is consciousness.The second is subconsciousness and is illogical.Human behaviour consist of two.They consciousness and subconsciousness switch on depending on the situation without we be aware of that.Subconsciousness switchs on when consciousness is unable to solve a problem like strange thinking.When consciousness is blocked for some reason subconsciousness replace it without our understanding.Strange thinking leads to strange actions which is symptom for schizophrenia.

So essentially how you cure schizophrenia is to type about it...
Live for the present, for it is a gift.

I surveyed 100 women and asked them what shampoo they used when showering, 98 of them said: How the hell did you get in here?

Here let me give you a hand. Wikipedia says:
Management of schizophrenia depends largely on medications and on psychosocial interventions. No single approach is widely considered effective for all patients, though in the United States and most Western countries, psychiatric medication is often the primary method of treatment. Currently, there is a movement towards utilizing a recovery model that emphasizes hope, empowerment and social inclusion, though this is not yet a mainstream mental health concept .[1]
Criteria for the remission of symptoms were suggested in 2006.[2] Management of symptoms and improving function may be more achievable than a permanent cure[citation needed] .
Antipsychotics have been a mainstay of therapy since the introduction of chlorpromazine in the mid-1950s, which revolutionized treatment[citation needed]. Significant adverse effects have attracted controversy. Older concerns of sedation, tardive dyskinesia and neuroleptic malignant syndrome have been largely replaced with those of drug-related obesity and diabetes.
In many non-Western societies, schizophrenia may only be treated with more informal, community-led methods. The outcome for people diagnosed with schizophrenia in non-Western countries may actually be better than for people in the West.[3] The reasons for this effect are not clear, although cross-cultural studies are being conducted.
The effectiveness of interventions is often assessed using standardized methods, one of the most common being the Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS).[4] This instrument only measures the presence of psychiatric symptoms, and does not adequately assess the characteristics of the recovery model which emphasize psychosocial constructs of recovery, such as hope, identity formation, empowerment and social inclusion.[1]

I'm convinced that the best way to treat schizophrenia is to refrain from giving the person any drugs, keep them the hell away from psychiatrists and institutions, and keep them doing productive things with family.

I'm opposed to typical treatment (institutions and drugs); not all treatment.

Drugs do help, but ya if you can keep them away from the shrinks and just eat right and pray, a good support system does wonders.

Just click "reply&quote" instead of "reply"

Or type a colon right before the line you want to quote, like ":" turns into

quoted line

Conventional treatment for schizophrenia is very effective. Often, the problem is that lack of following the treatment modality. Unfortunately, Schizophrenia is a serious disease, and those who have it sometimes fail to understand that the treatment will be equally serious.

I disagree.

"...the outcome of schizophrenia in developing countries is generally more favourable [than the outcome in the United States]"
