How to Defeat Depression

“By 2020 depression will rank second only to heart disease as the leading cause of disability worldwide.”
–   The global burden of disease, Cambridge, Murray and Lopez

Here are my notes for the above video on chronic depression:

Psychoneuroimmunology – goes both ways

3 months – therapy, drugs

Inflamed brain feels no pain! Not like a muscle or a joint – signals with psychiatric symptoms

Inositol 4g x3 /day  for 4 weeks
ECGC – green tea extract

Diet – sugar!

Toxins!

Your gut!

No Grains

No Dairy

You Are Enough

Brain Based Wellness

Boost DHEA, serotonin, GABA, melatonin and beta-endorphins – the hormones that are the brain’s defence against stress.

Restore the body’s natural pH balance

Rid the body of toxins

Balance the immune system

A direct connection exists between the nocioceptive reflexes at every level of the spine and the limbic system. Every spinal level has an intimate relationship with the proper functioning of the limbic system. [Blum and Holder 1997]
