DIET AND EXERCISE PRODUCE BEST RESULTS

FOR CLINICAL DEPRESSION

First to follow are the two comments I am responding to. Now you can read the article if you want to hear the drug company marketing plan for antidepressants ONE MORE TIME after hearing it repeatedly for the past two and a half decades or you can get to the crux of the problem we call depression by reading these comments below. In reading the comments you will learn critical information that too few have ever heard about these drugs in the form of a statement by Dr. Candace Pert who was one of the two discoverers of the serotonin binding process which made antidepressants possible….

call c. “I recently learned there are medical conditions which can contribute to depression such as hypothyroidism(low thyroid function). talk with your medical professional about the possibility of your depression having a treatable medical cause.”

Shelly M. “Depression has been around since the beginning of time. It is part of our mortal probation. What is lacking today are the critical thinking skills about life, the limits and the expectation of self-reliance. There is no magic pill. Big Pharma just wants you to “plug in” and pay up. What is really needed is consistent service to others, healthy social interactions and good old fashion physical labor. We have lost our way as a society. Expect to see suicide on the rise.”

Ann Blake Tracy: “You are exactly right Shelly! And call c is correct too. I have found the biggest physical problem with depression is low blood sugar – hypoglycemia. It is epidemic and completely overlooked as too many doctors reach for antidepressants for these patients that only pushes them into a Bipolar or diabetic reaction.

“And I have to disagree with the initial premise that diet and exercise, etc. does not work for clinical depression. According to medical research exercise for half an hour three times a week is EIGHT times more effective than an SSRI antidepressant. And Dr. Candace Pert, who was one of the two scientists who discovered the serotonin binding process which made all these antidepressants possible, stated clearly in Time magazine, Oct 20, 1997 that diet and exercise were the answer to depression as opposed to the SSRI antidepressants she called “monsters” and which she regrets ever having been involved in their birth and development.”

WARNING: In sharing this information about adverse reactions to antidepressants I always recommend that you also give reference to my CD on safe withdrawal, Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!, so that we do not have more people dropping off these drugs too quickly – a move which I have warned from the beginning can be even more dangerous than staying on the drugs!

The FDA also now warns that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant can produce suicide, hostility or psychosis. And these reactions can either come on very rapidly or even be delayed for months depending upon the adverse effects upon sleep patterns when the withdrawal is rapid!
