Depression: Detoxification Outweighs Drugs

(NaturalNews) Columbia researchers recently announced that ten percent of the U.S. population are on drugs for depression. Doctors quoted by a HealthDay reporter thought this was an improvement because more people are seeking help when they are feeling chronically blue. But there's a foundational question that wasn't addressed: "Are drugs for depression the right kind of help?"

Given that most people have 10 plus pounds of old, rotting fecal matter in their colon and that even newborns these days have more than a hundred known toxic chemicals already inside their bodies, do you think all of the toxicity inside the average person might be at least part of the reason one in ten people are feeling so crummy?

Before you answer, consider that Sherry Rogers, M.D. has outlined in Detoxify or Die 12 common chemicals often trapped inside the average person's body - all that have been found to cause depression or damage the nervous system, in addition to causing many other problems.

These common chemicals include: plastics (which are commonly absorbed into foods wrapped in them), pesticides (in each non-organic bite you take), mercury (from pesticides, fungicides, fish, "silver" fillings, vaccines and paints), hexane from jet fuel (reported in 2004 to be found in milk), aluminum (found in antiperspirants, antacids, aluminum cans, aluminum foil and a great deal of cookware), trichloroethylene (in most city water supplies), TCE (from dry cleaned clothes and carpets), cadmium (from cigarettes), toluene (from cigarettes, inks, nail polishes, cleaners, glues and many more sources), some home insulation (UFFI), gasses from faulty furnaces and even from diesel exhaust.

Combine the above with the fact that most of the population has a problem with candida overgrowth, which is a fungal condition that has become extraordinarily common due to antibiotic use and birth control use - and as part of candida's existence, it releases about 80 known toxins in our bodies each day.

All of this begs the question: Do you think that this ten percent of the population would feel any differently if they made concerted efforts to remove those poisons from their bodies and conscientiously stopped putting more in, instead of simply taking drugs for depression?

Even if you discount the toxicity factor affecting people today and causing more problems than most comprehend, do you know how depression drugs or SSRIs "work?"

Essentially, the theory is this. Many people with depression don't have enough serotonin in their brains, so depression drugs alter the way serotonin is sent between cells. This is done to make the serotonin more accessible to a cell that is meant to be simulated by it, but isn't simulated, because not enough was sent in the first place. By altering our delicate brain chemistry, these drugs make it appear to the cells that there is more serotonin than there really is.

But the thing is, with the right ingredients, the human body can manufacture more serotonin. Which do you think a body would prefer: man-made chemicals that alter its natural function - or having the right natural ingredients to simply make more of a natural brain chemical it's low on?

If you answered the latter, you should know that tryptophan is a naturally occurring amino acid and the precursor to serotonin. Essentially, this means if your body has enough tryptophan it can simply manufacture more serotonin. By approaching the problem in this manner it, of course, means there is no need for depression drugs to alter our brain's function or trick the body into thinking that a limited supply of serotonin is plentiful.

Tryptophan can be found as a supplement and in foods, particularly in nuts and seeds. Nuts and seeds are chock full of tryptophan, so simply by eating them regularly you can help your brain produce more serotonin. For best results, however, nuts and seeds should be both raw and unprocessed.

It's interesting to know that in 1989 the naturally occurring amino acid tryptophan was taken off the market as a supplement. This was due to a problem with a bad batch that is believed to have been caused by genetically modified materials that were used in its production. However, the timing was odd: it coincided perfectly with when Prozac was patented and released to the public, with a profit margin over the active ingredients of almost 225,000 percent. Fortunately, tryptophan as a supplement is now back on the market.

About the author

Kim Evans is a natural health writer and author of Cleaning Up! The Ultimate Body Cleanse. Cleaning Up! offers deep cleansing and using methods in this book, people have gotten rid of dozens of different types of health problems, as well as just losing excess weight, thinking more clearly, and feeling better.

Kim's next book chronicles events in her life that happen to match patterns in the Bible. She's also found three places in the Bible that tell us its about these patterns and even asking you to match them.
Here's a little from the upcoming book...
In Isaiah 22:20, it says, "And it must occur in that day that I will call my servant, namely Eliakim." But, because these prophecies are cryptic and they aren't meant to be understood until they are understood, it's only the last three letters.
A few lines later, it says, "From the land of Kittim it has been revealed to them."
Here, you just take out any three middle letters, and again, it's the name of the person bringing you this message, or the sacred secret of the prophecy. Actually, if you take those two passages, Kim is about the only name you can get from both of them.
In Numbers 1:1 1:18, it's talking about "the family" and mentions Pagiel. It also twice mentions February 1st, (Kim's birthday) and then says that the youngest is 20 years old. Kim's little sister Paige is currently 20 years old.
In Chronicles 1 11:20 it mentions the brother of Joab and then in the same sentence uses the word brandishing. Kim's middle name is Jo and her older sister's name is Brandi. There are other patterns to her sisters too but these sort of mention them by name.
Of course, it helps if you know that there is a magical spiritual reality available that comes deep cleansing and often major dietary upgrades. It's also why Jesus was teaching the same thing, if you find his teachings in the Essene Gospel of Peace. In this text, he even says things like, "You'll never see the father unless you clean your colon." But, this is paraphrased...
In the Bible Jesus says things more like, happy are those who wash their robes, as they can enter the tree of life. The tree of life is elsewhere explained as God's paradise. He also said, first clean the inside of the cup and then the outside will also be clean.
