NATURAL TREATMENTS FOR DEPRESSION



As an MD, I’ve watched too many of my colleagues yank out anti-depressant samples every time a patient starts to cry. So on behalf of physicians everywhere, let me apologize for our trigger-happy prescription-writing behavior. I don’t mean to diminish the pain someone who is depressed might experience. But tears are healthy. Sadness doesn’t always need treatment. And it’s important to remember that the pain muscle and the joy muscle are the same. If you can’t feel one, you won’t feel the other.


That said, clinical depression sucks, and if you’re someone who suffers from it, my heart goes out to you. I’m in no way intending to diss anti-depressants or suggest you ignore your doctor’s advice. I know anti-depressants can be life-saving for people. But unless you’re suicidal or otherwise in dire need of urgent medication, before you dose up on side-effect laden pharmaceuticals, it’s worth considering some natural treatments that might help lift your mood.

How To Treat Depression Naturally


1.  Consider why you might feel depressed. Sometimes depression is a symptom of something circumstantial in your life, rather than biochemical imbalances. Does your job require you to sell out your integrity every day? Have you been unable to admit that you need to end your marriage? Are you feeling spiritually disconnected or sexually restless? Are you suffering from creative blocks? Is your body failing you? Are you facing financial ruin? Be honest with yourself about what might be off-kilter in your life, and make an effort to get to the root of why you might be feeling depressed.

2.  Move your body. Exercise releases happy-making endorphins, which act like natural anti-depressants. Runner’s high, anyone?

3.  Never skip a meal. Keeping your blood sugar stable reduces mood swings.

4.  Eat a serotonin-enhancing diet. Many anti-depressants like Prozac act by inhibiting the reuptake of serotonin by receptors in the brain, thereby increasing serotonin levels. But you can increase your brain’s serotonin levels by eating foods that boost your serotonin levels naturally.

Serotonin-enhancing foods include:
 

  • Foods high in omega-3 fatty acids (such as wild salmon, sardines, herring, mackerel, and anchovies, which are even higher in omega-3 fatty acids than other fish)

  • Healthy fats like coconut oil

  • Eat a high protein diet, especially proteins high in tryptophan, like free range turkey


5 Best Snacks to Boost Your Mood


5.  Avoid caffeine, which reduces serotonin levels. If you need an energy boost, supplement with L-Tyrosine (500 – 1000 mg).

6.  Expose yourself to sunlight, which can boost mood and increase Vitamin D levels. If you live somewhere that gets little sun, invest in a therapeutic light box.

7.  Try mood-enhancing supplements: (DISCLAIMER: Although you can get these supplements over the counter, I always recommend doing this under the care of a physician, since supplements can have side effects and risks and can interact with other medications.)
 

  • 5-HTP 50-300 mg up to three times/day — start at 50mg in the morning. Converts directly into serotonin. If you are taking too much, you will feel sleepy or have runny stools. Also usually helps with anxiety, although sometimes it can paradoxically cause anxiety. Must use with great caution if you’re taking an anti-depressant.

  • St. John’s Wort 300mg three times/day. If you don’t feel better within a week, slowly increase your dose to a max of 600mg three times/day. May decrease the effectiveness of birth control pills.

  • SAMe 200mg on an empty stomach twice/day. Increase your dose every two weeks to a maximum dose of 600mg twice daily. This can be a very effective antidepressant, but it can also be expensive. Side effects at higher doses include GI upset, nausea, agitation, and insomnia.

  • L-Theanine 100-600mg daily. Reduce if you feel sleepy. Found in green tea.

  • Fish oil (DHA/EPA) 1-3 g/day with food.


8. Meditate or try guided imagery. Meditation’s effects on mood are well documented. Settling your mind can lift your mood, in addition to a whole host of other health benefits.

9. Get your hormones balanced. If your thyroid, adrenal or sex hormones are out of whack, your mood can get all wonky. See a good integrative medicine doctor and ask them to order and interpret the following tests:
 

  • Thyroid gland tests – TSH, free T4, free T3, total T3, thyroid antibodies

  • Adrenal gland tests – cortisol, DHEA-S, pregnenolone

  • Sex hormone tests – estradiol, progesterone, free and total testosterone


10. Make efforts to bolster your mental health by being more authentic in all aspects of your life. Too often, we walk around wearing masks, pretending to be something we’re not. We fake it at the schoolyard, in the boardroom, in the bedroom, at church — and then we wonder why we wind up depressed. Consider signing up for this e-course about getting in touch with your authentic self. Practice letting your freak flag fly and watch how your mood lifts.

11. Talk it out. See a therapist, psychiatrist, or life coach and express how you feel. Sometimes just finding someone you trust who will help you work through your feelings can make all the difference in the world.

If all else fails and you need anti-depressants, don’t beat yourself up. Sometimes you can do everything right, and if your imbalance is biochemical, you may need the drugs. But don’t forget to nurture the rest of you too. Depression, like most physical and mental illnesses, is multifactorial and requires a global investigation of your whole health — not just your mind and body, but your relationships, your work, your financial picture, how you express yourself creatively, how you satisfy yourself sexually, your environment, and whether you’re letting your Inner Pilot Light (aka authentic self) shine.

THROAT CANCER

Throat Cancer: 
When a friend of mine died some years ago from throat cancer, the cancer experts in the hospital told us that


SMOKING - was the 3rd reason for throat cancer.
BINGE DRINKING was the 2nd cause.
URBAN LIVING was the most serious cause of throat cancer - the crap in the environment.


and what are the government doing about that ?  BUGGER ALL and they run around banning smoking with all sorts of dubious scientific reports about smoking while totally ignoring binge drinking  and the environmental damage caused.  They hide the true facts and moan on and on about smoking when the truth is very different to reality.



BE AWARE THAT MUCH OF WHAT YOU THINK IS TRUE - MUCH OF WHAT IS REPORTED AS
SCIENTIFIC ACCURACY AND MUCH OF WHAT WE HAVE BEEN TOLD FOR GENERATIONS,  
IS ACTUALLY  MANIPULATIVE BULLSHIT AND SIMPLY IN ERROR. 

MANY DOCTORS BELIEVE WHAT THEY HAVE BEEN TOLD, BUT THEY ARE NOT SCIENTISTS,
THEY BELIEVE WHAT THE DRUG CARTELS TELL THEM ABOUT A DRUG AND LIKE SO
MANY POISONS IN THE FOOD CHAIN - THE PUBLIC ARE KEPT IN IGNORANCE AND
THEY ARE DYING TO KNOW THE TRUTH.

WHY ?

BIG BUCKS - PROFIT BEFORE PEOPLE -
DON'T REALLY CARE MUCH AS LONG AS IT MAKES A HANDSOME PROFIT.

 


The best way to beat cancer naturally is to adopt a lifestyle to prevent it.

Healthy, nutrient-rich food is an essential part of any anti-cancer plan.  Here are my picks for the top 5 vitamins that help protect against cancer.  Stay posted next week for the Top 5 Minerals that Help Protect Against Cancer.

1. Beta carotene
This precursor of Vitamin A is found in most orange and green vegetables such as carrots, sweet potatoes, spinach, kale, and other leafy green vegetables.  An amazing nutrient, it has been shown in research to protect the lungs against toxins that are linked to lung cancer.

Another study found that ex-smokers who ate green and yellow vegetables high in beta carotene daily decreased their risk of stomach and lung cancer.

2. Vitamin B6
This B-Vitamin is essential to maintain a healthy immune system and helps protect the respiratory tract from pollution and infection.  In studies it has helped protect against cervical cancer.  Vitamin B-6 is primarily found in carrots, apples, organ meats, bananas, leafy green vegetables, and
sweet potatoes.

3.  Vitamin C
One of the most well-researched nutrients, Vitamin C has shown great promise in the fight against cancer, both in prevention and disease-management.  Consider a recent study in which forty patients with cancer of the breast, ovary, uterus, or cervix received large doses of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) and other vitamins.

Another sixty-one patients with other kinds of cancer followed the same regime, while thirty-one patients received no vitamin supplements and served as the control group.  The control group lived an average of 5.7 months.  Of the others, 80 percent of the patients with cancer of the breast, ovary, uterus, or cervix had a mean survival time of 122 months; patients with other forms of cancer lived an average of 72 months.  That translates into a length of life 13 to 21 times longer in those who used vitamin therapy.

4. Folic Acid
In studies, folic acid, also known as folate or vitamin B9, helps protect against cervical cancer and is necessary for the proper formation of the body’s own genetic material – DNA and RNA.  It is found in beets, cabbage, dark green leafy vegetables, eggs, citrus fruits, and most types of fish.

5. Vitamin E
In addition to protecting against bowel cancer, Vitamin E works as a powerful antioxidant that reduces the damage caused by ozone and pollutants on the cells. It is found in eggs, wheat germ, liver, unrefined vegetable oils, and dark green vegetables.

WANT TO QUIT SMOKING ?


England will not pass the natural drug TABEX as they say it has not yet passed stringent testing while it has been available in Europe for over 40 years and has proven to have a much higher success rate than any other product.  It is a plant based substitute for niccotine and has no known side effects.  It would cost the Natuional Health one tenth the cost of the now available Champix which costs the NHS £150 for a 12 week course.   There is nothing illegal about buying Tabex on-line and I think we all know the reasons why the NHS are dragging their feet and why it could be a further 3 years before it is legal and licensed in the UK - because the pharmacutical drug companies do not make enough - if any - profit from a natural product like this and would prefer you to use their expensive drugs.  It really can be seen as easily as this.  Drug companies would rather you become ill and use their - often - poisonous products ( look at chemo )  instead of using age old remedies that have a proven track record.

DO NOT always believe what you read and make your own mind up about any medication you are offered, whether it be from your doctor or a natual product from a health food store.  When something like Tabex has been used for over 40 years - FORTY YEARS - and has a proven track record and yet is STILL not available when all that is - is a costly chemical alternative, this rings alarm bells that the big drug companies are all about profit and not what is best for the patient.
 

 

Radical sexual play is not the symptom of some bizarre mental illness that has been perceived by those who fail to understand it, but rather a natural outreach of the sexually curious and exploration of the self by those chosen few, who dare to walk down forbidden paths to seek an inner truth; a happiness inside of their souls.
