Depression

With so many people  put on Prozac/Celexa/other antidepressant, depression is a commonly diagnosed condition. But even those on medication do not always experience relief.  I believe we are NOT born with a Prozac deficiency; so what is the true cause?

Symptoms Include

  • Feelings of sadness or unhappiness
  • Irritability or frustration, even over small matters
  • Loss of interest or pleasure in normal activities
  • Reduced sex drive
  • Insomnia or excessive sleeping
  • Sugar cravings & weight gain
  • Irritability or angry outbursts
  • Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements
  • Indecisiveness, distractibility and decreased concentration
  • Fatigue, tiredness and loss of energy — even small tasks may seem to require a lot of effort
  • Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself when things aren't going right

Top Causes of Depression

  • Chronic infection (like a virus) in the hypothalamus
  • Low Vitamin D/Allergy to Vitamin D (85% of my clients have this!)
  • Heavy Metal toxicity on the brain (brain tissue, being very electrical, tends to attract metals onto itself, like iron shavings to a magnet)
  • Allergy to serotonin (in which immune system destroys level down to 35-45% of optimal)
  • Allergy to Vitamin D
  • Allergy to B vitamins (precursor to serotonin and other feel—good brain chemicals)
  • Genetic mutation affecting absorption of all but one certain type of B12, Folate, and B6, needed to make neurotransmitters (this one is quite common as well--in about 80% of my clients)
  • Food allergy such as sugar or wheat

Other Causes

  • Low thyroid
  • Systemic fungal or bacterial infection

This is a subject near to my heart, as depression has run in my family. Thank God I no longer experience it at all, as I found what allergies needed to be cleared and exactly what supplements reverse it which has raised my serotonin significantly!  I now KNOW how good it feels to feel happy, and that depression is NOT something you have to live with!
