Science can't even explain why a chemical imbalance occurs in the first place.

Their is no scientific proof that the chemical imbalance isn't a result of a person's own mood change.

As the person on this thread with a chemical balance already stated. There are no tests to find the disease. No way to prove the disease even exists. There is only a laundry list of symptoms in which this doctor has to compare you to in order to prescribe the right kind of medication.

Does that sound like science to you? Guessing on the medication based on a patients and/or doctor's preceived symptoms?

Yes it can.

"Their is no scientific proof that the chemical imbalance isn't a result of a person's own mood change. "

Neurophysiology is understood enough to know what is normal, and what is not. That means the functions of neurophysiological structures and chemistry are known and understood. Even the functioning of the mind as a rational agent is. that does not mean, that what can be recognized as a problem, can be addressed at this point in time.

"As the person on this thread with a chemical balance already stated. There are no tests to find the disease. "

There are tests, and no one said there wasn't. Anyone can be examined to determine mental and affect function. If affect is inappropriate and more, or less interferes with rational drives, it can and will be observed.

"There is only a laundry list of symptoms in which this doctor has to compare you to in order to prescribe the right kind of medication."

No. That is guessing. The only way to recognize and treat disease is by knowing and understanding the biology in depth. Only by knowing and understanding it, can the disease be recognized and the appropriate corrections taken.
