Hi, I just wanted to start off my blog by saying there is hope –there is healing for depression. Depression is not incurable. Healing depression is possible.
I know that you may have been tormented for years with feelings of helplessness and hopelessness. I know that it may feel like there’s no way back. Like you’ve tried everything, and nothing’s helped.
I also know that if you are dealing with the pain of depression, that medications, doctors, psychologists, and psychiatrists may have promised you relief but left you with promises unintentionally broken and your hopes dashed. You may feel like there’s nothing left to do, nothing more to try, that you should just get used to the idea of living with your depression.
Maybe it’s not you but someone you love, someone you hold dear to your heart who you see suffering day by day. You want to help them, to rescue them but you just don’t know how…..
Please, no matter who you are, what you’ve tried, or how you feel today; please keep looking for the answer for you! It will be worth it. You are worth it.
If you’re reading this blog now you’re probably looking for answers, for solutions that really work this time. What I can do for you is to provide you with tools to help you discover the physical or biochemical causes of your depression. And once you’ve found out the cause you can treat it, very specifically- and I’m not talking about antidepressants. The treatments I often suggest are supplements (vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids etc), natural hormone medications, simple dietary changes and occasionally some lifestyle modifications- and I don’t propose the same treatment options to every single person.
I’ve started this blog and written a book on the physical causes of depression (and its treatments), because my nephew needed answers, just like you do. My husband’s nephew (I married into the family just over 2 years ago) suffered from depression and suicidal thoughts from the age of 6. Yes as young as the age of 6- no joke. His family searched for answers for years but they couldn’t find any solutions to help his suffering- for over 10 years! There was definitely lots of sleepless nights, endless worry, and hopes shattered in their household.
Luckily they didn’t give up, because when I married into the family, and I found out about my nephew’s depression, I was fortunately able to help. I had been involved in previous research into the causes of depression, and natural and hormonal treatment approaches. I was able to diagnose the biochemical imbalances that were leading to my nephew’s chronic condition. In truth in the end the solution was actually quite simple. With two supplements at the right doses his depression lifted within weeks. It was quite miraculous!
I tell you this not to impress you, but to impress upon that you can find healing too. Healing depression in some cases is as simple as 1 supplement or 1 hormonal medication. The key to healing depression is finding out the cause of your depression, and then treating it very specifically. That means that a ‘cure’ or effective treatment for your depression will most likely be different from my nephews. I know of at least 20 effective treatments for depression- the key is finding the right one for you.
I’m going to leave it here today, but I’ll tell you more about the best cures for depression next time. Hang in there. My nephew and his family didn’t give up, and I believe that there will be answers to help you to.
To your depression free life!
