The Real Causes of “Demonic Possession”

Individuals who believe they are possessed need psychiatric and medical attention not a religious exorcism.

10 Reasons that explain the mental and physical conditions often associated with demonic possession that have absolutely nothing to do with malevolent supernatural beings or God:

  1. You are having an allergic or unfavorable reaction to a medication (could be something as common as aspirin) or something environmental.
  2. You are dehydrated.
  3. You are sleep deprived.
  4. You are suffering from malnutrition.
  5. You have a fever.
  6. You have a mental disorder such as schizophrenia.
  7. You are suffering for anxiety or paranoia.
  8. You spend excess amounts of time in sensory deprived scenarios.
  9. You have watched one too many horror films (Brought to you by William Friedkin, Ed Gass-Donnelly, Renny Harlin, William Peter Blatty, Scott Derrickson, Daniel Stamm, etc.)BC
  10. You are a religious fraud pretending to cure a “possessed” individual in order to gain a following.

    Good list! One could also use it as “options for inducing a possessive state.” 😛
