A noted professor in the field of psychiatry is publicly challenging
some of the myths about depression. Prof. Malcolm Lader, emeritus
professor of clinical psychopharmacology, Institute of Psychiatry,
London, says that fewer people are subject to depression than currently
believed. For the real story on busting myths about depression, however,
let's dig deeper.
When it comes to clinical depression, the biggest
myth of all is that depression is a disease that you can't do anything
about and, therefore, you need prescription drugs to "rebalance your
brain chemistry." It's one of the greatest hoaxes of modern medicine,
and it's generating hundreds of millions of dollars in revenues for drug
companies. In reality, practically all cases of so-called clinical
depression can be completely reversed with three simple things: 1)
radical shifts to a healthy diet rich in essential fatty acids like GLA
and completely absent any processed foods. 2) Regular physical fitness
activites that include both a cardiovascular and strength training
component (at least 4 days a week). 3) Regular exposure to natural
sunlight, for at least one hour a day, directly on the skin with no
Show me a depressed person, and I'll show you someone who
has absolutely not done these three things. In fact, I've never met a
person who does these three things and is depressed. Not one. I

habits combined with a lack of physical exercise and avoidance of
natural sunlight. It's really that simple. You don't need prescription
drugs to fight depression, you need to get back to nature.

to them by the pharmaceutical companies and medical journals. That
belief system generates lots of profits for the drug companies. If you
fall for it, they've got you trapped in their little mind game. The only
way you can take control over your own mental health is to let loose of
those beliefs and realize that you were born to be healthy and happy,
and all you have to do is return to nature to find it. In nature, you
eat wholesome foods, not processed foods like white flour and high
fructose corn syrup. In nature, you move your body every day, you don't
sit behind a desk for your entire life. In nature, you get sunshine on
your skin, you don't hide behind sunscreens loaded with toxic perfumes
and cancer-causing chemicals. Just get back to nature and, in a short
period of time, you'll feel a whole lot better about life, too.
