Depression and Bi-polar disorder at at epidemic levels today. So many suffer from this debilitating condition but aren’t getting relief because the medical approach is flawed. The list of dangerous depression medications is growing almost daily but they focus on the brain. Over 90% of serotonin is produced in the gut. This is called the enteric brain. The majority of depression sufferers have leaky gut which is when large proteins are allowed to pass directly into the blood stream without being broken down properly first. The result is a lack of absorption of critical nutrients and improper overall function. The pharmaceutical industry focuses on drugs that are SSRIs or Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibiters. They believe it is a brain chemistry problem but in actuality, it is a leaky gut problem.
Isn’t depression just a chemical imbalance?
- Absolutely not. There is no chemical difference in the brain comparing a severe schizophrenic to a “normal” person. Current medical protocols do not test the chemicals in the brain. There is, however, a neurotransmitter problem but even that isn’t measured today. Depression is a gut issue most of the time or a stress issue. Since 90% of the body’s serotonin is produced in the gut and a constant “fight or flight” state can lead to depression.
Are anti-depressants safe?
- Absolutely not. There is a black box warning on anti-depressants that says they have the effect of suicide or suicidal thoughts. Anything that has that effect, particularly when we don’t know how they work in the body, is a bad idea.
How do anti-depressants work?
- The mechanism of action of anti-depressants is UNKNOWN. Nobody knows how they work! The advertisements say they BELIEVE they inhibit serotonin re-uptake, but they don’t really know for sure.
What are GMOs?
- Genetically Modified Organisms. Those are are patentable products that have NEVER had human testing. The animal studies show that they cause damage to the cholesterol synthesis and immune system. They are dangerous! Most countries are banning them now.
Isn’t depression just ‘all in my head’?
- No, depression is mainly in your gut. It is actually called an enteric brain. Focus on the nervous system and the gut.
How can I get through my depression?
- Find the stressors. It will be a physical, chemical or emotional stressor.
- Get your nervous system checked for the physical stressors.
- Chemical stress- eliminate toxins from your diet. Eat healthy organic whole foods.
- Emotional stress- prayer and meditation. You can also try the emotional freedom technique or EMDR (eye movement de-sensitization response). Using those methods will help you recover from your depression.
