The Dangers of Antidepressants

0-606231963-fotolia-63313777-subscription-monthly-m

Antidepressants are mood-stabilizing drugs designed to help alleviate the symptoms of depression. But the symptomatic relief comes at an extremely high price-not just in terms of money, but in the toll they can take on the body and the side effects they create.

Types of antidepressants

There are four classes of antidepressants:

  • Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). SSRIs are designed to help the brain make better use of serotonin, which is believed to elevate or moderate mood. Types of SSRIs are:
    • Paxil, Prozac, Celexa
  • Serotonin-Norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs). These work a lot like SSRIs, but they inhibit norephinephrine in addition to serotonin. Examples of SNRIs are:
    • Effexor and Cymbalta
  • Tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs). TCAs slow or prevent the re-uptake of serotonin and norepinephrine, which causes increased production of these ‘feel good’ brain chemicals. TCAs are not the same as SRNIs. Examples of TCAs are:
    • Elavil, Tofranil and Pamelor
  • Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs). This was one of the original types of antidepressants that had to be taken with strict dietary intake. They were eventually replaced due to the severe side effects that came from taking them. Today, they are a last resort for patients unresponsive to SSRIs and TCAs. Examples of MAOIs are:
    • Parnate, Nardil

There are also antidepressants that don’t fit these classifications. They are:

  • Wellbutrin
  • Remeron

 

Known Side Effects

According to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), known side-effects of antidepressants are:

  • Headache
  • Night sweats
  • Nausea
  • Agitation
  • Sexual problems
  • Dry mouth
  • Constipation
  • Suicidal thinking
  • Mania (extreme high and low emotional states)
  • Birth defects
  • High blood pressure

 

Causes of Depression

As with many mental disorders, it is believed that a combination of factors cause Depression.  Some people are more susceptible to developing the condition, while others are not.  It can be an inherited condition, but most people with Depression have biochemical changes in the brain.  Neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine are responsible for regulating happiness or feelings of pleasure.  If these are out of balance, then people may develop Depression.  Common causes are:

 

Natural Healing For Depression

  • Exercise can be a great natural remedy to help with Depression because it generates positive endorphins that contribute to what is known as “runner’s high.”  You don’t have to exercise every day, but exericising for 30-45 minutes three times a week can be as effective as taking antidepressant medications.
  • Meditation is a great way to help you relax and clear your mind, which can be difficult for someone battling Depression.  By focusing on your breathing and emptying your mind, you can establish a mind/body connection that promotes positivity.  Find a quiet retreat to meditate in every day.  Start off with 10 minutes and work your way up to 45 minutes a day.  If something comes into your mind while meditating, acknowledge it and let it go. If meditating in silence proves difficult, try a guided meditation.
  • Similar to meditation, acupuncture can help promote better circulation and a mind/body connection.  The needles can stimulate certain pressure points and release endorphins, which can make your body feel calm and relaxed.
  • It can be beneficial to set goals, even minor ones, to help establish a schedule and make you feel better that you are accomplishing things.  Simple goals such as washing the dishes, taking a walk, or taking out the trash can be a great way to start.  Begin with smaller goals and graduate to things that seem harder.
  • Support groups can be a positive source to help people with Depression.  It allows people with Depression to relate to one another, while giving them a chance to learn from people with similar issues.  Similarly, seeking therapy or counceling may help those with Depression.  Talking about feelings can help the person overcome the condition and discover the root of the problem, so that the right steps can be taken to help combat Depression.
  • Although it may not seem like it, eating a healthy diet comprised of plant-based foods can contribute to a healthier, more positive outlook on life.  Processed foods, dairy products, refined sugars, or meat can have chemicals that inhibit the production of positive neurotransmitters.  Certain foods can actually enhance serotonin levels, and promote a happier feeling overall.
  • Get more food that has magnesium.  Magnesium is a prominent mineral in the body and can help lower stress levels, contributing to a more relaxed, positive state.  If you aren’t sure of what foods contain magnesium, always go for bananas, dark leafy greens, avocados, or nuts and seeds.
  • Some people with Depression can have a difficult time sleeping, and too little sleep can worsen the condition. You can help yourself by going to bed at the same time every day.  Additionally, take distractions out of your bathroom like the TV and try not to nap during the day.  In time, your sleep should hopefully return to normal.

    Q: I hope all is well! I am writing this note to request a consultation with Djehuti . I can only imagine how busy you are, so I will be brief. But, feel free to let me know if you'd like more detailed information. I am contacting you regarding seeking treatment for severe clinical Depression. In addition I suffer from a severe lack of energy. I'd also like to treat several nutritional deficiencies. I am 35 years old. I have been suffering from Clinical Depression since I was about 16 years old. I began to address my Depression only about 3-4 years ago. Since that time I have struggled off and on with counseling with a Social Worker, psychotherapy with a Psychiatrist, group therapy with a Psychologist, several medications, outpatient hospitalization, CBT therapy, and natural and alternative treatments such as herbs, minerals, vitamins, yoga, exercise, meditation, fasting, and cleansing. But nothing has had any long term benefits. My Depression has become increasingly more severe. Over the past 1.5 years, my Depression has been at its worse. About a year ago, I lost my job due to the Depression. I then went into a major depressive episode that has lasted well over a year. I'd like to ask you for some direction in treating my Depression, lack of energy, etc. If you have some time, I'd love to do a consultation with you. Any help that you can offer will be greatly appreciated. I am interested in doing an intense 3-month fast and detox cleanse. I would really like to do a cleanse and detoxification to completely heal my body and get rid of the toxins, impurities, mucus, etc. Thanks for your time and I look forward to hearing back from you.

I have gone up and down in my career and love life. Now I just feel tired and feel I am steadily spiraling down. I know I have to do something, I just don't know what. I have gone to therapy several times and nothing last. I desire to have a full life and believe GOD wants us to live abundantly.

He also battles with, suicidal thoughts, and evil spirits. He lives a pretty normal life to outsiders, but internally he is extremely unstable. He has a psychologist, and he is caught up in the medicine of the western world. He is aware of the causes of his mental illnesses, but he is unsatisfied with his current condition, He is longing for healing, and he believes that it can be done. He feels that he is alone because nobody understands what he is going through. He is a very spiritual person, but there are many demons attached to his spirit, and he is trying hard to fight them off. Unfortunately he is coping in all the wrong ways. He is trying to manage, and maintain with these diseases, which is only causing him to sink into a greater depression. What do you recommend?

    Q: I TAKE MEDS FOR DEPRESSION, A WATER PILL, AND BLOOD PRESSURE. WILL THE FULL BODY DETOX HAVE ANY HARMFUL AFFECTS WITH MY MEDS?

    A:

    The FULL BODY DETOX won't have any harmful effects with the meds but the Detox will be counterproductive to the meds as the meds are poison and herbs work against poison. It is your meds that are harming you right now. God made no part of the human body out of medication or pharmaceuticals (petroleum) so you can never heal a health problem with drugs.

    Q: I've been taking classes on how to be more responsible for myself naturally because, my Naturopath became a burden to my pocket. I have no insurance, and I don't make a great deal of money as a massage therapist. Visits were at least every six weeks. He did more talking (irrelavant to my case) than evaluating. The supplements I could find (same brand) for at least 1/2 the price elsewhere, but was left to trusting him for my first supply. I wasn't even sure why I was taking some of them. I've been reading as many of your articles as I can, in order to get a clue about what's best for me. YOUR GREAT! But there are times when I feel I need expert advice on how my body feels. Though I felt taken advantage of by my Naturopath. Can you give me an idea on how to ID a good one on this side of the world? What would be a typical intake? Price?

    A:

    Hmmm! Intake, Price? That's going to vary! The best way to determine anything is based upon your intuition (energy). A good ND listens to you! Their price is pretty economical, or they will work with you to help you out financially. They don't push their products on you, they just inform you on what you need. They let you know you have free will and choice! A good ND will allow you to ask questions and give you answers that suffice your questions.

    Q: I am 66 yrs old and have multiple health problems-HBP, Diabetes and depression. I weigh 240 lbs. and want to get down to at least 190 or lower. My skin at this time on my arms and stomach looks awful. When I lose the weight which I intend to do with your help. Is there anything you can do to help tighten your skin as you lose weight. Remember my age.

    A:

    Thanks for the question! That is a very good question at that. 

     To avoid loose skin from weight loss the best thing you can do is lose weight slowly and efficiently. Healthy weight loss is around 1lb to 2lbs per week. Your body always seeks balance and does not respond well to rapid weight gain or loss. Hence the stretching of your skin. It takes around two years for your stretched skin to return to "normal" so be patient. Losing weight fast is a goal most people have and you hear stories of people losing 10 lbs a week and believe that is the way to go. Considering your age it's best to take things slow. Besides not losing weight too rapidly, here are three other tips for keeping skin tight.

    1. Switch to a high raw food diet. Raw food diets are often referred to as "Facelift Diets". People who eat a majority of their food raw (60% plus) look younger than most because of the high antioxidant and phytochemical count in raw plant foods. I have seen hundreds of raw foodists lose weight and cellulite at the same time. Raw food helps the body stay hydrated, refreshed, and repairing rapidly. Fruits are my favorite skin food. Avocados, coconut, bananas, peaches, tropical fruit, grapefruit, berries, etc are all potent skin renewing and correcting foods.
    2. Hydration is the key to elastic skin. A simple test to see if you are hydrated is to pinch the skin on the top of your hand for two seconds and then releasing. If the skin snaps back you are hydrated. If it slowly pulls back to position you need to hydrate. The best way to hydrate is to drink two glasses of room temperature water as soon as you wake up. As maintenance drink 8 ounces of water every two hours. Remove or lessen the amount of dehydrating foodstuffs like coffee, tea that is not herbal, table salt, animal products, artificial sugars.
    3. Take care of your skin now by exfoliating daily, doing salt scrubs, using non toxic and natural beauty products. A rule of thumb is "if you wouldn't put it in your mouth don't put it on your skin". Your skin has a direct pathway to your blood stream so be careful what you put on it. I use coconut oil on my skin daily as a moisturizer and that is it. My skin has never been better.

    Lastly, with your health goals I recommend you have a free online consultation with me. I run a six month health coaching program over skype that teaches a system of health that empowers people to take control of their own health by teaching them all the tools to get their. Some of the lessons in the course are alkalinity, 60-90 percent raw, detoxing and cleansing, juice fasting, plant based beauty, intro to stress relief and meditation, etc. My clients get the results they desire and get healthy for life. To get a free consultation with me fill out the health history form found here: Health forms . I look forward to hearing from you. Let me know if you have any more questions.

    Q: I was just released from the hospital from having chest pains (stress related this time, next time I might not be so lucky. I am currently 280 pounds and on a rack of prescription drug for diseases ranging from diabetes, cholesterol, high blood pressure, anemia, depression and the list goes on. I am thinking about doing the Full Body Detox Kit but I am afraid. How will this interact with the prescription medication I am currently on and is it possible to find out what the instructions will be before I actually purchase the product?

    A:

    Your main aim should be to release weight. Obesity is your major problem.

    If you are afraid of performing the Full Body Detox, how can I help you? Fear shuts the body down, so why even bother taking something natural that will help you. People are afraid of the wrong things. You should be afraid of taking all of those drugs which can kill you. Read my article "Iatrogenics." Drugs can't help you because your body is organic and not made up of drugs, so in reality, you're only poisoning yourself. If you are thinking about performing the Full Body Detox and still taking drugs while doing so, don't bother! Don't waste your money! It defeats the whole purpose to take drugs and herbs simultaneously. Herbs heal and cleanse, drugs pollute.

    Fear results from ignorance. Educate yourself about herbs. Read our free articles.

    Q: I know your very busy, but I would be very appreciative if you could help me in any way that you can. I'm 22 with a 7 month old baby, with no support from my family. Over the last 3 months the father decided that he doesn't love me anymore, and has done an obscene about of things to disrespect me. Which leaves me hurt, and stressed out! I'm mentally, spiritually, and physically drained. I have no peace of mind, and I tend to fall in and out of depression. I feel like I'm going to breakdown, and the tears just won't stop falling. I'm trying to keep it together for my baby. Internally, I've been hurt so bad, I just feel like giving up. How can you love someone one minute, and the next not care for them at all? How do I deal with her father? I'm so tired of being the bigger person, and trying to work through things. He just doesn't care at all, and he makes no effort to even try. He then turns around and says, "He cares about his daughter". I try to explain to him that our relationship affects her, but he always has an answer for everything. I don't mean to dampen you with my problems, but I would appreciate it if you could not only hear me, but feel me and what I'm going through. Every little bit helps

    A:

    Greetings, Beloved! You are upset because you expect something and expectation is your problem. You are expecting something beyond your control, expecting something coming from another person you can't control. Just do you and let karma take care of this dude. You just can't up and not love someone anymore. He's either saying that so as to bounce from the scene (leave) and his responsibilities or he never loved you in the first place and perhaps used you for his own purposes of sexual gratification and you ended up getting pregnant. At either rate, just do you and focus on you - what you desire for you and your child. Think positive! Let go of the situation involving this dude. Start on it TODAY! The dude is selfish and creating karma! Release him! You can't make a person do something that is not in them to do.

    Q: Good Day to you. July 07, I was diagnosed with having the auto-immune disease Myasthenia Gravis. Since then I have had several hospital stays, including a surgery to remove my Thymus Gland...(beleif that this was one cause)and taking many medications, one of which suppresses my immune system, the others include steroids which have terrible side effects...etc. My latest hospital stay, I was placed on the vent and intubated, because of the Myasthenia and an infection that my body couldn't fight off (suppressed immune system) that further complicated the MG restricting my respiratory system. That was a truly scary and painful experience. I am only 32 and I have been searching for a more natural approach to eradicating this Dis-Ease of the body which they say there is no cure. My thoughts are, they are not looking for cures...if they did, that would mean the pharmaceutical companies no longer have reason to continue to poison and make dependent on them those whom they make the medications...which eventually cause other problems...meaning they don't make money if cures are found. The continuous pill taking and side effects are causing more problems than the original diagnosis. Please let me know if any of your products are a possible answer to my prayers. I am desperately seeking...in addition to keeping the faith and staying strong in prayer, a more natural approach to dealing with MG and taking care of my body, the temple of which the creator has kept alive in spite of this potentially dangerous ailment. Thank you in advance for your time.

    A:

    You didn't have to have your thymus gland removed. This gland is the seat of the immune system so the doctors removed your natural defense and then gave you toxins which are really exacerbating your situation. I recommend that you perform the FULL BODY DETOX and after performing, take a daily regimen of RAINFOREST TONIC, IMMUNE BOOSTER EXTRACT, KHEMETIAN GOLD, ACTIVATED CHARCOAL and ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD. You can overcome your present health crisis! Just stay strong, focused (on your healing), and POSITIVE! Every problem including with health is an opportunity!!!!!!

    Q: I just stopped taking my medication for high blood pressure (10mg of Lisinapril) about a week and half ago. I started your regimen of Circul-Aid Formula, Cardio-Vascular Formula and celery everyday. Will there be any after effects from my taking prescription medication for a long period of time? Are there any other healing regimens I could undergo along with the current (i.e. cayenne/garlic)? I did the Full Body Detox in January (excellent), and plan on undertaking that regimen again in July. My only concern was the lasting effects of the medication. Also, the article on High Blood Pressure was very informative.

    A:

    Drug residues will remain in the tissues for some time. The more you detox, take herbals, and eat raw fruits and vegetables (drink fruit and vegetable juice), drink good water, etc. The faster the drug residues will leave the body. Drugs are not assimilated in the body, because they are not organic, they end up lodged in the tissues of the body. When you take herbs, and eat fruits and vegetables, the tissues are cleansed and that's how the drug residues are eliminated from the body. You are on the right path, and I suggest you keep doing what you're doing. Don't even worry about the past drug medicine use. Stay in the NOW (moment), and focus on what you desire and you will be alright. A cayenne/garlic formula would aid you. Go for it! Make sure changes are made to the diet because it's the primary factor in HBP along with stress. Check out our "Dietary Choices" section under 'More Services' on the Home Page.

    Q: I've had Crohn's since 1989. Months later, I developed a vaginal fistula. Since then, I've had a partial colectomy of the left colon, hemicolectomy of the right colon, and I had a partial hysterectomy. During the same time they did an ileostomy. I wore it for 3 months. When they took it down, it did not repair the fistula. Some months later, I developed a vaginal cyst, and I began taking Lupron injections to reduce it. It reduced the cyst, but threw my body into menopause. Now I'm having problems with my sight, memory, and other menopausal symptons. Also since 1992, my breath began to smell, and when I use the bathroom, it smells awful. I want to be healed from Crohn's, but my main problem right now is, how I smell. I can't keep existing like this. I'm battling diarrhea, pain, anemia, fatigue, depression, gas, and bloating. I've asked my GI about detoxing, because I believe that's one thing that would make me feel better, but he says no. He doesn't know what to do about my breath, and neither do I anymore. What do you suggest?

    A:

    You should listen to how you feel and DETOX! Detoxing will help you, and your situation. The drugs have made you toxic! Here's what you need to do first and foremost, perform the Full Body Detox, followed by the 10-Day Electric Greens Cell Food Cleanse, followed by the 10-Day Supreme Colon Cleanse. While performing these cleanses, drink 1 cup of Female Health Tea daily, and read the "Mental Science Manual" and apply the principles.
