The man treatment before effective medications were available was a retiring trip to the sea or the country or to a mineral bath--which treatment still shows the same efficacy as antipsychotics, I'm told. Presumably this was because of the reduction in stress and stimulation.

However, obviously that treatment was only available to a small socioeconomic class, and even then was often impractical.
