Help for Depression is in the news. In the last year some 46.7 million prescriptions were issued for Depression, in the UK alone.
The medical profession is defending this, stating that anti-depressant drugs work. This is nonsense. They then narrow the discussion to a choice between drugs and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Neither of which work.
How do I know? I had depression for over 20 years. Is there help for depression? Yes, but this isn’t it.
The current nonsense about depression being the result of a ‘chemical imbalance’ – low serotonin levels – is based on research, deliberately distorted by the pharmaceutical cartel. These lies have resulted in profits measured in billions, and untold misery for those dependent upon drugs known as SSRIs (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors).
Depression is linked to inflammation. Inflammation is linked to stress. The body uses inflammation to fight off attack, whether it’s physical, as with disease, or emotional.
Is there help for depression? Yes. Get rid of the fear.
Until the medical profession stops its inane pursuit of symptom killing, which won’t happen because that’s how big pharma makes its money, people will be told that medication is the answer to chronic health problems. Is medication any real help for depression? No, it isn’t.
In the same vein, CBT is mostly ineffective, because it too is based on the medical model of symptom fixation. This is, I believe, down to the Psychologists, who have a great understanding of human behaviour. Unfortunately, they delude themselves into thinking that, by understanding why we do things, we can alter them. The Royal College of Psychiatrists claims that CBT is as effective as the drugs. Well, that’s reassuring! Is this any real help for depression? No, it’s delusion.
So, is there really any help for depression? Yup…. get rid of the fear. Stress is the perception that we are under attack. This perception is based on our beliefs, which reside in our subconscious mind. Advanced Hypnotherapy is an excellent tool for ‘unhooking’ inappropriate beliefs quickly, and without dragging up the past. Reducing stress, reduces the inflammation, which eases the depression.
