Depression Protection and Treatment Protocol

    

REGULAR Exercise and Vitamin D will help CURE depression most of the time.

    

“Regular exercise may be the most powerful natural antidepressant available.”    Murray & Pizzorno

"How can exercise and fish oil be more effective for depression than anti-depressant drugs? Could it be because they are both potent anti-inflammatories? Could it be that depression is a low-grade inflammatory condition of the brain." Doctor Mark Hyman MD

“Much of the mood-elevating effect of exercise may be attributed to the elevation of mood-elevating endorphins by exercise.”    Carr et al

“An analysis of 64 studies on the efficacy of an exercise program in the treatment of depression physical fitness training was found to relieve depression and improve both self-esteem and work behavior.”    Folkins & Sime

     

The simple primal act of getting LOTS of the high noon sun on your bare “unprotected” skin in large amounts just may be the most important single thing you can do for your health. If the sun casts a shadow longer than you are tall you cannot make adequate vitamin D from the sun. You MUST take vitamin D3 at the daily rate of about 1000 IU/20 pounds of body weight.

     

“Activated vitamin D in the adrenal gland regulates tyrosine hydroxylase, the rate limiting enzyme necessary for the production of dopamine, epinephrine and norepinephrine. Low vitamin D may contribute to chronic fatigue and depression.”    Puchacz et al

"Fix your Body and you will fix your Brain" Doctor Mark Hyman MD

"Autism is not a brain disorder but a systematic disorder that affects the brain." Doctor Martha Herbert MD

"With autism we see clearly the effects of systemic imbalances in the body on the brain and mind. And what holds of autism holds true true of brain disorders like depression, Alzheimer's and a host of others as well." Doctor Mark Hyman MD

"How can exercise and fish oil be more effective for depression than anti-depressant drugs? Could it be because they are both potent anti-inflammatories? Could it be that depression is a low-grade inflammatory condition of the brain." Doctor Mark Hyman MD

"Partially digested dairy and wheat particles are found in the urine of severely depressed patients as well as children with autism and ADHD." Doctor Mark Hyman MD

“Regular exercise may be the most powerful natural antidepressant available.” Murray & Pizzorno

“SAMe is perhaps the safest and most effective antidepressant in the world.” Life Extension

“Depression is not a disease and the vast majority of people who are taking antidepressants or who have been told they should take antidepressants do not need to. Except for a small number of people anti-depression medication is not only ineffective, it can be dangerous. Anti-depressant drugs can cause insomnia, anxiety, nausea, decreased sex drive, tremors, sleepiness, weight loss or gain, fatigue, diarrhea, constipation, headaches, sweating and dizziness.” Doctor James S. Gordon MD

This book will do more to change your ideas on the ABSOLUTE importance of nutrition than any other IMO.   Weston Price Protocol

“The diets of healthy primitive and non-industrialized peoples contain no refined or denatured foods such as refined sugar or corn syrup; white flour; canned foods; pasteurized, homogenized, skim or low-fat milk; refined or hydrogenated vegetable oils; protein powders; artificial vitamins or toxic additives and colorings.” Weston A, Price Foundation

   

“Circling the world in the 1920s and 30s, Doctor Price and his wife found the same sinister pattern among “primitive” populations, whether isolated Irish fishermen, tribal Africans, Pacific Islanders, Eskimos, North and South American Indians or Australian Aborigines. Those groups that followed their traditional nature-based diets enjoyed good health and vigor and those that turned to the ‘civilized’ diet of processed, sugar-laden foods soon developed a variety of ills, including misshapen bones and teeth-and the situation worsened with each generation.” Doctor Robert M. Cathcart MD

       

“It would seem highly logical to screen people suffering from nervous disorders, anxiety and depression for magnesium and other nutritional deficiencies before putting them on antidepressant drugs or treating them with counseling type therapy.”  Depression & Anxiety, Note highly logical but not mainstream medicine

“Current research indicates vitamin D deficiency plays a role in causing seventeen varieties of cancer as well as heart disease, stroke, hypertension, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, depression, chronic pain, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, muscle weakness, muscle wasting, birth defects, and periodontal disease.” John Cannell Vitamin D Council

"The idea that psychiatric or neurological "diseases" like depression. anxiety, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease and dementia can be effectively treated not by administering psychoactive medications; but by altering dietary and lifestyle influences and repairing the body's systems, which affect the entire Body-Mind system in which the brain functions. is resisted by conventional psychiatry and neurology." Doctor Mark Hyman

“A study of 2800 men over 55 showed even minor depression can increase cardiac deaths by 60%, while major depression can triple deaths. Stress response to depression seems to trigger chronically high cortisol levels.” Pennix et al

“Magnesium deficiency causes serotonin-deficiency with possible resultant aberrant behaviors, including depression, suicide or irrational violence.”             Paul Mason

“Activated vitamin D in the adrenal gland regulates tyrosine hydroxylase, the rate limiting enzyme necessary for the production of dopamine, epinephrine and norepinephrine. Low vitamin D may contribute to chronic fatigue and depression.” Puchacz et al

A Comparison of Internet Use and Health Status of Populations That Experience Health Disparities ,Note learning about health shows a STRONG Reduction in Risk

“The first step towards redressing some of the ills of civilized life—from depression to road rage, from cavities to osteoporosis—would be to get more light, inside or outside. Vitamin D adds sunlight to life from childhood through the golden years.” Krispin Sullivan, CN

“The elderly have a particularly strong need to maintain vitamin D sufficiency. Not only are they likely to produce less vitamin D from solar UVB irradiation because they generally spend less time in sunlight than do younger people, but their efficiency of photoproduction is less. In addition, diseases such as cancer and osteoporotic fractures are most likely among the elderly.” William B. Grant, PhD, and Michael F. Holick, PhD, MD

“Those consuming pharmaceutical antidepressants are chemically cut off from their humanness, cut off from love. They cannot feel compassion, sympathy or connection.” Doctor Ann Blake Tracey

“A large survey of Finnish adults found that depressive symptoms were significantly higher among infrequent fish consumers (1) and other studies have shown that individuals with major depression have marked depletions in omega-3 fatty acids (2).” Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center

“Several studies have confirmed that SAMe is up to 15% more effective in the treatment of depression than traditional pharmaceutical antidepressants.”

“Much of the mood-elevating effect of exercise may be attributed to the elevation of mood-elevating endorphins by exercise.” Carr et al

“An analysis of 64 studies on the efficacy of an exercise program in the treatment of depression physical fitness training was found to relieve depression and improve both self-esteem and work behavior.” Folkins & Sime

“Decreases in DHEA levels has been linked to a number of chronic and degenerative diseases including cancer, coronary artery disease, depression, stress disorders and neurological dysfunctioning.” Straub et al

“Several studies have established a clear association between low levels of omega-3 fatty acids and depression. Other studies have shown that countries with a high level of fish consumption have fewer cases of depression. Researchers at Harvard Medical School have successfully used fish oil supplementation to treat bipolar disorder (manic-depressive illness) and British researchers report encouraging results in the treatment of schizophrenia.” Hans R. Larsen, MSc ChE

“Because depression and dementia share the common vascular risk factors; the vasculoprotective properties of fish oil and its EPA could contribute to decrease depression and dementia risk simultaneously.” Samieri et al 2008

“It is a wonderful supplement and is a fantastic nutrient for depression and chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, and fibromyalgia. SAMe influences the formation of brain chemicals and helps to preserve glutathione, the body’s most important internal antioxidant. SAMe is also involved in the formation of myelin, the sheath that surrounds outer part of nerve cells. As a result of this insulation property most people, taking SAMe, notice an increase of energy, alertness and well-being. SAMe has been used in Europe to treat depression and arthritis for decades. It is a liver enhancer and it helps the liver to function at its best. While it is used for all forms of arthritis it is particularly useful in the case of osteoarthritis.” Doctor Michael Lam MD

“Studies show a direct positive correlation between high serum homocysteine levels and the risk of heart attack and stroke. A high homocysteine level is also associated with Alzheimer's disease, as well as depression, multiple sclerosis, menopausal symptoms, and rheumatoid arthritis. Homocysteine is formed naturally when protein is broken down. Too much of it causes oxidative damage to the endothelium. Oxidative damage is caused by free radicals--byproducts of the body's normal processes that can damage body tissues. In fact, the risk for heart disease triples when the homocysteine blood level exceeds 15.8 umol/L - a reading still considered by many to be within the "normal” range (The optimum target should be under 8 umol/L). Worse yet, the odds of heart disease are directly proportional to the homocysteine concentration. The higher the blood homocysteine level, the higher the risk of cardiac disease.” Doctor Michael Lam MD

“A deficiency of magnesium can present common psychiatric symptoms including depression, anxiety, restlessness, and irritability. Depressed patients have been found to have lower levels of magnesium. Oral supplementation of magnesium has been tried as an adjunct treatment in psychiatric patients and been found to be successful in rapidly cycling bipolar affective-disorders. “Doctor Michael Lam MD

“Scientists were first alerted to the many benefits of fish oils in the early 1970s when Danish physicians observed that Greenland Eskimos had an exceptionally low incidence of heart disease and arthritis despite the fact that they consumed a high-fat diet. Intensive research soon discovered that two of the fats (oils) they consumed in large quantities, EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), were actually highly beneficial. More recent research has established that fish oils (EPA and DHA) play a crucial role in the prevention of atherosclerosis, heart attack, depression, and cancer. Clinical trials have shown that fish oil supplementation is effective in the treatment of many disorders including rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, ulcerative colitis, and Reynaud’s disease.” Fish and Fish Oil

“If you are following the traditional paradigm you will most likely receive a prescription for antidepressants. Unfortunately, they simply don’t work any better than placebos, and there are many studies that clearly document this. It wouldn't be so bad if antidepressants were harmless sugar pills.  As you likely know they aren’t and can actually cause many people to commit suicide and have a number of other side effects, like violent behavior.” Doctor Joseph Mercola MD

“What we’re finding in the research on physical exercise is that physical exercise is at least as good as antidepressants for helping people who are depressed. And that it’s even more important for older people. Physical exercise changes the level of serotonin in your brain. It changes, increases your levels of “feel good” hormones, the endorphins. And also, it can increase the number of cells in your brain, in the region of the brain called the hippocampus. These studies have been first done on animals, and it’s very important because sometimes in depression, there are fewer of those cells in the hippocampus, but you can actually change your brain with exercise. So it’s got to be part of everybody’s treatment, everybody’s plan.”  Doctor James S. Gordon

“These four primary things -- exercising, addressing emotional stress, eating right, and getting regular sun exposure -- will make you feel at the top of your game. Whether you want to overcome depression or just want to stay healthy, these are the lifestyle changes that will get you there.”  Doctor Joseph Mercola MD

"Higher intakes of omega-3 fatty acids and oily fish may reduce the number of occasions that women suffer depressive symptoms by about 30%, according to a new study. Women with the highest intake of oily fish reduced their number of depressive moments by 25%, while a high intake of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) reduced this number by 29%."  Feinberg School of Medicine Chicago,  University of North Carolina CH. University of California, SF

"Are we defectively designed so that we cannot be happy or concentrate or remember things without pills? Is depression a Prozac deficiency? Is ADHD a Ritalin deficiency? Is Alzheimer's an Aricept deficiency? I think not. " Doctor Mark Hyman MD

http://www.dalycity.org/Assets/Departments/Police/images/Don$!27t+Do+Drugs.gif

"A study in the New England Journal of Medicine discovered that drug companies selectively published studies on antidepressants. They published studies that showed benefit and published almost note of the studies that showed they don't work. This hiding of the real and complete data on antidepressants has fueled the tremendous growth we have seen in psychiatric medications."  Doctor Mark Hyman MD.

"Overwhelming evidence links folate, B12 and B6 levels to depression and mood disorders. More than one quarter of all severe depression can be cured with B12 shots." Doctor Mark Hyman

"Researchers recently conducted a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study on 75 patients with bipolar disease. They gave the treatment group 1 gram of NAC, twice daily. They all saw their depression symptoms lessen significantly within five months. People with bipolar and depression are typically deficient in glutathione. NAC helps to raise your levels. NAC is one of my favorite nutrients for heavy metal detoxification as well." Doctor Robert Rowen MD

"Frankincense has been clinically researched to combat cancer and for use as an antidepressant. It is commonly used in European hospitals. Frankincense is being researched for its ability to simulate human growth hormone production and to assist in hormone balance." Ty Bollinger Cancer Researcher, Note Frankincense is Boswellia

"Hundreds of studies show that regular exercise improves your mood as much as medication. Exercise releases endorphins "feel good" chemicals made in your brain such as serotonin."  Doctor Nan Fuchs PhD

"A daily supplement of 7 mg of zinc as zinc gluconate was associated with significant decreases in measures of anger-hostility and depression-dejection, scientists from Daigaku Junior College and Seitoku University reported in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition."   Zinc found strongly anti-depressive in young women

“SAMe is perhaps the safest and most effective antidepressant in the world.”   Life Extension

    

Anti Depressive and Anti Psychotic Drugs CAUSE Depression, Suicide and Psychosis

Antipsychotics: Overused, Overpriced, Oversold

“Psychiatric drugs, whose developers, marketers and salespersons are all in the employ of the giant drug companies, are far more dangerous than the drug and psychiatric industries are willing to admit: These drugs, it turns out, are fully capable of disabling — often permanently — body, brain and spirit.”   Doctor Gary Kohls MD

"Finally, in 1993, I'd had enough. I said, 'Take me to a hospital.' I went in for 47 days, and it made Betty Ford look like a cakewalk. My hair turned gray and my skin molted. I could hardly walk. You can detox off heroin in 12 days. Coke is just a mental detox. But tranquilizers -- they are dangerous. I was terrified to leave, and I came away knowing that that would never happen to me again."    Stevie Nicks, Fleetwood Mac

"Antipsychotics can increase cardiac risk even at low doses, whereas antidepressants do it generally at high doses or in the setting of drug combinations."    Expert Opinion on Drug Safety 2000 – 2007

"Depression may be the worst emotional experience there is. The causes are many, and it often drives people to zig-zag past everything that matters and into a pill bottle of pharmaceutical ‘treatments’. But these solutions offered by the pharmaceutical industry are nothing but a sham, and their antidepressant products only make you more depressed and trigger suicidal thoughts. One study has also found that antidepressants cause your arteries to thicken 400% more than aging – a main factor in the thickening of the arteries.”   Antidepressants Cause Your Arteries to Thicken 400% More Than Aging

“Anyone on Prozac is twelve times [12] more likely to attempt suicide than one not on an anti-depressant.”   Eli Lily Prozac Manufacturer

"It is well documented that psychiatric drugs, particularly antidepressants, can cause a host of violent side effects including mania, psychosis, aggression, violence, and in the case of the antidepressant Effexor, homicidal ideation ... [P]eople with no prior history of violence (or suicide) became homicidal and suicidal under the influence of antidepressants. ... However, despite all the documented violence-inducing side effects of these drugs, the FDA has never issued black box warnings on antidepressants causing violence or homicide despite the fact that at least 11 recent school shootings were committed by kids documented to be on or in withdrawal from psychiatric drugs."     CCHR December 7, 2011

“Antidepressants can cause suicidal thoughts and behavior, worsening depression, anxiety, panic attacks, insomnia, irritability, hostility, impulsivity, aggression, psychotic episodes and violence.  Some even cause homicidal ideation according to the manufacturers. Many long-term antidepressant users will tell you they no longer feel normal emotions—they’re numb, like zombies.”   FDA

“If you’re going to attempt to jump your scooter over the Grand Canyon, or ride your snowboard off Kilimanjaro, stimulants are great. They flood the brain with dopamine and trigger an inhuman surge of adrenaline, responsible for making you believe life is grand, despite eminent death. Outside of that, you’re either a speed freak, a college student trying to learn an entire semester of Biology 101 in 4 hours, or a fifth grader “following doctor’s orders. Top stimulants being prescribed today are nothing more than a mix of amphetamines packaged into trade names like Adderall, Dexedrine and Ritalin.  Street thugs sell it as meth, poor man’s cocaine, crystal, ice, glass and speed. It’s no wonder kids are now abusing Ritalin, Adderall and these drugs more than street drugs, they’re cheaper to get and they’re “legal,” hence the term kiddie cocaine.”    Shane Ellison

“Twenty-six years have passed since Prozac, the antidepressant drug, was introduced to the US market and quickly achieved the label of a “wonder drug.” In the decade that followed, other antidepressant drugs including paroxetine (Paxil), sertraline (Zoloft), fluvoxamine (Luvox), and citalopram (Celexa) would be released, creating an entire class of medications known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Since hitting the shelves, the popularity of SSRIs has skyrocketed. Today, 1 in every 10 Americans reaches for antidepressants daily.[1] This ratio jumps to an incredible 25% among women between the ages of 40 and 59.[2] Approximately 5% of children ages 12 to 19 are also taking antidepressants.[3] Worldwide, mental illness is now the leading cause of disability among children.[4]”   Manufacturing Madness: The Pseudoscience of Modern Psychiatry

    

Prozac to the Rescue?

“Between 2004 and 2006 the FDA MedWatch program received 2,290 Individual Safety Reports naming Prozac (fluoxetine, also marketed as Sarafem for ladies and Reconcile for dogs) the Primary Suspect Drug for 1,817 distinct adverse reactions ranging from alopecia (hair loss) to xanthogranuloma (tumor).   Sexual side effects include: anorgasmia, disturbance in sexual arousal, dyspareunia (painful sexual intercourse), ejaculation disorder, ejaculation failure, erectile dysfunction, female sexual arousal disorder, genital discharge, genital disorder female, genital disorder male, libido decreased, loss of libido, male sexual dysfunction, orgasm abnormal, orgasmic sensation decreased, ovarian disorder, sperm analysis abnormal, uterine pain, vulvovaginal dryness etc. All 1,817 Prozac side effects are listed below in alphabetical order.”    http://www.bonkersinstitute.org/prozaceffex.html

Considering that as few as one percent of the adverse reactions are reported; Prozac to the Rescue?; I don't think so.

    

How hard is it to figure out School Shootings

“After the Sandy Hook murders, psychology and psychiatry have taken another leap forward in expanding their influence throughout society. “More mental-health services” is the catch-all phrase our leaders use in “solving” these massacres—along with gun control. But just as grabbing guns won’t reduce the bulk of gun violence in America, the vague mental-health dictum won’t work, either.”   How psychology undermined Western civilization

Please spend a few minutes on this issue and you will NEVER consider a DRUG for the problem of depression.

     

Drugs have CHANGED the Nature of Depression for the MUCH WORSE

The Medical Industry does not want to cure disease it wants to TREAT disease until you DIE before your time.

    

"There is no evidence that there is anything wrong in the serotonergic system of depressed patients."   National Institute of Mental Health 1983, Note the serotonergic system is often the target of anti-depression drugs, thus the theoretic basis for drugging up MOST depressed patients does not exist.

"Prior to treatment, patients diagnosed with schizophrenia, depression, and other psychiatric disorders do not suffer from any known "chemical imbalance." However, once a person is put on a psychiatric medication, which, in one manner or another, throws a wrench into the usual mechanics of a neuronal pathway, his or her brain begins to function …  abnormally."   Robert Whitaker, Medical journalist

“When antidepressants were introduced, it was with the intent that they would help people recover from depression more quickly. Unfortunately, what we're now seeing, and have been seeing since antidepressants were introduced, is patients recovering faster but relapsing more, or recovering only partially and transitioning into a festering state of chronic depression that never really resolves.”     Doctor Joseph Mercola MD

"Hey, listen, the course is changing with antidepressants. We're changing it from an episodic illness to a chronic illness, and we really need to address this."   Giovanni Fava MD, Italy

"There is no evidence that there is anything wrong in the serotonergic system of depressed patients."   National Institute of Mental Health 1983, Note the serotonergic system is often the target of anti-depression drugs

"More than half the people who take antidepressants for depression never get relief. Why? Because the cause of depression has been oversimplified and drugs designed to treat it aim at the wrong target, according to new research from the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. The medications are like arrows shot at the outer rings of a bull's eye instead of the center. A study from the laboratory of long-time depression researcher Eva Redei ... appears to topple two strongly held beliefs about depression. One is that stressful life events are a major cause of depression. The other is that an imbalance in neurotransmitters in the brain triggers depressive symptoms. Both findings are significant because these beliefs were the basis for developing drugs currently used to treat depression. ”   2009 Neuroscience Conference  

The interactions of antidepressants with your brain, liver, digestive system and other systems are still not fully understood, but we do know that the side effects are numerous. Besides the standard laundry list of nausea, dry mouth and loss of libido, more serious side effects of commonly prescribed antidepressants include: Suicidal thoughts and feelings and violent behavior, Diabetes, Problems with your immune system, Stillbirths, Brittle bones, stroke."   Doctor Joseph Mercola MD

“Dr. Healy's conviction that SSRI's can make people actively suicidal was originally borne directly out of his own clinical experience. Since then, the research demonstrating this link has become quite clear, and this class of drugs now carry a "black box" warning. What's really infuriating though is the evidence that has since emerged showing that pharmaceutical companies knew about it, and hid it, and it wasn't until it became an obvious issue in clinical practice that a warning was finally issued. People literally lost their lives because these companies didn't want to risk sluggish sales.”   Profits Before Life—The Sad History of Antidepressant Drugs

Dead Wrong: How Psychiatric Drugs Can Kill Your Child (Full Version)

"This website is a collection of 4,800+ news stories with the full media article available, mainly criminal in nature, that have appeared in the media (newspapers, TV, scientific journals) or that were part of FDA testimony in either 1991, 2004 or 2006, in which antidepressants are mentioned. This web site focuses on the Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs), of which Prozac (fluoxetine) was the first. Other SSRIs are Zoloft (sertraline), Paxil (paroxetine) (known in the UK as Seroxat), Celexa (citalopam), Lexapro (escitalopram), and Luvox (fluvoxamine). Other newer antidepressants included in this list are Remeron (mirtazapine), Anafranil (clomipramine) and the SNRIs Effexor (venlafaxine), Cymbalta (duloxetine) and Pristiq (desvenlafaxine) as well as the dopamine reuptake inhibitor antidepressant Wellbutrin (bupropion) (also marketed as Zyban)."   http://ssristories.com/

“Mothers who took antidepressants during pregnancy were twice as likely to give birth to a child with autism. The risk was significantly increased when the mother took anti-depressants in the first trimester. Then, the risk was three times higher.”   Mothers Taking Antidepressants 2x more Likely to Have Autistic Child

     

Folks it is TOTALLY clear you want to steer clear of drugs for simple depression. Anti-depressant drugs are actually changing the nature of depression for the MUCH worse. Simple depression used to be an acute problem that mostly self resolved in a few months with NO long term effects. Now with anti-depressant drugs it is becoming a LIFE LONG disease where the poor souls taking the drugs live in a CONSTANT drug induced semi-stupor.

      

Mercury and depression

"Part of the reason for depression is related to mercury's effect of reducing the development of posterior pituitary hormone (oxytocin). Low levels of pituitary function are associated with depression and suicidal thoughts, and appear to be a major factor in suicide of teenagers and other vulnerable groups. As a profession, dentists rank highest in suicide. Autopsy studies in Sweden showed that the pituitary glands of dentists hold 800 times more mercury than people who were not in dentistry. Suicidal thoughts are not limited to dental personnel though. Suicide is close to the number-one cause of death in teenagers."   Mercury Filling Toxicity

See if you can eliminate all but a few nanograms of this most dangerous toxin from your life.

      

Depression is Often Nutrient Based

“A deficiency of magnesium can present common psychiatric symptoms including depression, anxiety, restlessness, and irritability. Depressed patients have been found to have lower levels of magnesium. Oral supplementation of magnesium has been tried as an adjunct treatment in psychiatric patients and been found to be successful in rapidly cycling bipolar affective-disorders. “ Doctor Michael Lam MD

"What's more years of psychoanalysis will not reverse the depression that comes from profound omega 3 EFA deficiencies, a lack of vitamin B12, a low functioning thyroid or a chronic mercury toxicity." Doctor Mark Hyman MD

"Noted British psychiatric researcher Malcolm Peet conducted a provocative cross-cultural analysis of the relationship between diet and mental illness. His primary finding was a strong link between high sugar consumption and the risk of both depression and schizophrenia.”      The Links Between Sugar and Mental Health

"People who are clinically depressed often have low folate levels in their blood."   Prevention

"Consuming too much sugar or caffeine definitely contributes to feelings of depression. A steady diet of sugar seems to be linked with depression."   Doctor Larry Christensen

“Our research suggests that cutting out or down on sweetened diet drinks or replacing them with unsweetened coffee may naturally help lower your depression risk.”     Honglei Chen Researcher

Why Sugar Can Increase Depression Risk

    

Linus Pauling was one of the first who "highlighted the supremacy of nutrition in correcting abnormalities in the chemical environment of the brain." Nutrients like ascorbate, thiamin, niacinamide (vitamin B3), pyridoxine, vitamin B12, folic acid, magnesium, glutamic acid, and tryptophan were presented by Doctor Pauling as intimately linked to Brain function and mental illness. In recent years we have learned about the extreme importance of vitamin D in keeping the depression beast from our bodies.

In addition to strong bodies good nutrition helps us keep our mental health and emotional stability. With the proper diet containing the right nutrients in correct amounts, symptoms of mental illness can be rolled back and treated.  Deficiencies in certain necessary nutrients lead to psychotic symptoms and depression while supplementation of other nutrients help attenuate and improve the symptoms of mental illness.

    

Doctor Mark Hyman's Approach to Depression

"The secret that promises to help us fix our broken brains lies in an unlikely place, a place where modern medicine has mostly ignored. The answer lies in our body." Doctor Mark Hyman MD

"To learn how to fix your brain you are going have to learn to accept a radically new way of thinking about health - one that most doctors today still struggle to understand. The crux of it is embodied in a single truth. Everything is connected," Doctor Mark Hyman

"I never set out to be a brain or mood expert. In fact my focus was more on how the body works as a whole system. And people saw me not to treat depression or autism or Alzheimer's but to deal with chronic complaints and illnesses of the body. Hence I became an "accidental psychiatrist". Since then I have found remarkable patterns and connections that link the body to the mind. The wonder of the body continues to delight and amaze me as I understand more  clearly how the entire body and the mind is one interacting. interlocking. networked system." Doctor Mark Hyman MD

"It appears that obesity is not the only thing controlled by the information in our food. So are stress response, mood, behavior. memory and brain function. That is why a fresh, whole food, organic, real-food diet is the foundation of health."  Doctor Mark Hyman MD

"Food is powerful medicine. Eating more of certain foods and less of others can substantially boost the bodies ability to fight most illnesses from colds to cancer."   Doctor Keith Block MD

"My approach is simple the first step is to take out the bad stuff irritating you; the second step is to add the good stuff you need to thrive." Doctor Mark Hyman MD

   

Doctor Mark Hyman has made a breakthrough in holistic medicine.  Here is a main stream physician who started out treating complex problems of the body and discovered that when he was able to cure his patients body VERY OFTEN their often broken brains healed as well. His book "The Ultra Mind Solution" is required reading for the inspiration, knowledge, testing, protocols and hope it will bring to your understanding of depression.

      

Inflammation and Depression

Depression is often found alongside gastrointestinal inflammations and autoimmune diseases as well as with cardiovascular diseases, neurodegenerative diseases, type 2-diabetes and also cancer, in which chronic low-grade inflammation is a significant contributing factor. Researchers have suggested "depression may be a neuropsychiatric manifestation of a chronic inflammatory syndrome" Vitamin D deficiency is associated with increased inflammation in otherwise healthy people, and increased concentrations of serum TNF-alpha, an inflammatory marker, were found in women who had insufficient vitamin D levels.”   Doctor Joseph Mercola MD

 Your brain and your digestive systems are intimately connected thus any inflammation in your gut, a VERY common occurrence is likely to affect  your brain.

All this sugar should take some blame for Depression

Is Sugar Hiding in Your Diet?

"What if you were to learn that every day, 25 percent of your calories came from a poison, disguised as a food? And what if you discovered that this chemical imposter was responsible for your insulin resistance and weight gain? And elevated blood pressure. And elevated triglycerides and LDL. And depletion of vitamins and minerals. And even gout, heart disease and liver damage? What if you were to discover that this toxic substance had been dumped into your food in gradually increasing quantities for the last thirty years, with the full knowledge and blessings of the American Heart Association, the American Medical Association, the USDA and the FDA?"      Doctor Robert H. Lustig MD  UCSF        Start of series,   NOTE You MUST watch this, This video will help you kick the deadly sugar habit, Please start your anti-diabetes program by eliminating sugar/HFCS from your diet

    

Serotonin and Depression

Serotonin (See Serotonin Protection Protocol) is a brain hormone required to avoid depression as well as many other negative moods. In older folks and others serotonin levels are often suboptimal resulting in depression, anxiety, sleep problems, over eating and other mood related problems. Supplementing (See Supplement Protocol) with the essential amino acid L-Tryptophan (See L-Tryptophan Protocol) has been found to often increase brain levels of serotonin resulting in the lifting of depression.

  

SAMe and Depression

“SAMe is perhaps the safest and most effective antidepressant in the world.” Life Extension

“Several studies have confirmed that SAMe is up to 15% more effective in the treatment of depression than traditional pharmaceutical antidepressants.”

“It is a wonderful supplement and is a fantastic nutrient for depression and chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, and fibromyalgia. SAMe influences the formation of brain chemicals and helps to preserve glutathione, the body’s most important internal antioxidant. SAMe is also involved in the formation of myelin, the sheath that surrounds outer part of nerve cells. As a result of this insulation property most people, taking SAMe, notice an increase of energy, alertness and well-being. SAMe has been used in Europe to treat depression and arthritis for decades. It is a liver enhancer and it helps the liver to function at its best. While it is used for all forms of arthritis it is particularly useful in the case of osteoarthritis.”    Doctor Michael Lam MD

"Research demonstrated that SAMe was equally effective as certain drugs in alleviating depression, without the side effects often associated with these antidepressants.1,2 SAMe’s wide-ranging systemic health benefits are less well-known. In addition to boosting brain chemicals important to mood health, SAMe promotes the synthesis of other compounds that are crucial to functions such as gene expression and DNA repair.3 As a result of these many biochemical effects, scientists have demonstrated that SAMe may play a unique role in preventing, treating, or reversing numerous disorders of aging—including Alzheimer’s, fibromyalgia, inflammatory bowel disease, insomnia, osteoarthritis, and liver disease. One of the most important processes SAMe is involved in is methylation, in which it acts as a methyl donor to support a multitude of chemical reactions.7-9 Vital biochemical processes in the body rely on methylation. These include the synthesis of nucleic acids (DNA and RNA), proteins, phospholipids, and neurotransmitters. SAMe and the methylation reactions it promotes help regulate gene expression, lipid and mineral metabolism, membrane structure, and fluidity.3,9-11"   Beyond Depression...

Vitamin D and Depression

The simple primal act of getting LOTS of the high noon sun on your bare “unprotected” skin in large amounts just may be the most important single thing you can do for your health. If the sun casts a shadow longer than you are tall you cannot make adequate vitamin D from the sun. You MUST take vitamin D3 at the daily rate of about 1000 IU/20 pounds of body weight.

      

“In 2006, scientists evaluated the effects of vitamin D on the mental health of 80 elderly patients and found those with the lowest levels of vitamin D were 11 times more prone to be depressed than those who received healthy doses. Sufficient vitamin D is also imperative for proper functioning of your immune system to combat inflammation, and other research has discovered that depressed people tend to have higher levels of inflammation in their brains.”   Doctor Joseph Mercola MD, Note folks you CANNOT ignore this please get those vitamin D levels UP

“Current research indicates vitamin D deficiency plays a role in causing seventeen varieties of cancer as well as heart disease, stroke, hypertension, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, depression, chronic pain, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, muscle weakness, muscle wasting, birth defects, and periodontal disease.” John Cantrell Vitamin D Council

“These four primary things -- exercising, addressing emotional stress, eating right, and getting regular sun exposure -- will make you feel at the top of your game. Whether you want to overcome depression or just want to stay healthy, these are the lifestyle changes that will get you there.”  Doctor Joseph Mercola MD

“Activated vitamin D in the adrenal gland regulates tyrosine hydroxylase, the rate limiting enzyme necessary for the production of dopamine, epinephrine and norepinephrine. Low vitamin D may contribute to chronic fatigue and depression.” Puchacz et al

“The first step towards redressing some of the ills of civilized life—from depression to road rage, from cavities to osteoporosis—would be to get more light, inside or outside. Vitamin D adds sunlight to life from childhood through the golden years.”   Krispin Sullivan, CN

"Both men and women over the age of 65 have an increased risk of depressive symptoms if they have low vitamin D levels, with the association stronger in women than men, according to findings published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism."    Not Enough Vitamin D May Boost Depression Risk, Note for MANY reasons those of us over 55 are LIKELY to be severely vitamin D deficient. We MUST correct this, depression is just one reason.

“The elderly have a particularly strong need to maintain vitamin D sufficiency. Not only are they likely to produce less vitamin D from solar UVB irradiation because they generally spend less time in sunlight than do younger people, but their efficiency of photoproduction is less. In addition, diseases such as cancer and osteoporotic fractures are most likely among the elderly.” William B. Grant, PhD, and Michael F. Holick, PhD, MD
