Treating Depression

How to Beat Depression My husband James has suffered from depression for years. He went through days when he would not respond or talk, just sat staring ahead or sleeping. This went on in cycles. He would have okay days and then bad to worse days. I really feared for his life and tried to do everything I could to help him.

James refused to go to the doctor and it did not help when we read medical reports that the general depression medication used by doctors had only a 30% cure rate. Also one of the side effects of this medicine is an increase in impulsiveness. Suicide in many cases is a very impulsive act and may be the reason why suicide is one of the side effects of this medication.

This all changed when a friend invited us to go to a free Dr. Neil Nedley seminar on depression. This doctor is world renown and teaches and educates other doctors. His cure for depression is 90% for those who stick to the program.

His residential program is costly, around $6,000.00 for the 10-day program. However, the clients that come get specialized treatment and 24-hour care. Patients will swear that their case is hopeless and then to the delight of their families, come home totally changed.

We did not have the money for this program so James did a phone assessment interview with the doctor after doing some online tests to see the seriousness of his depression.

After the test and the interview, the doctor recommended several things that could be done. We gladly got the materials and already there is an improvement. Even though he is not doing everything in the program he does not have those times when he is silent for days, and he has a lot more energy.

Dr. Nedley shares his information freely at his seminars so feel free to check him out and see when he will be in your area.

Below we list the steps that were recommended to James to beat his depression. We are hoping this information will help someone else.

12 Steps to Beat Depression
You can do these steps in any order. The more you do the faster the cure.

1. 5-HTP 100 mg in the evening daily. Take one just before bedtime. It is reported that this supplement works as well as the depression medication the medical doctors give you, without the bad side effects.

2. Exercise every day, especially outdoors. Walking is good.

3. Early to bed, early to rise. Go to bed by 9:30 p.m. and up by or before 6 am. This will set your brain in the right pattern and help you get more done in the day.

4. Bright blue light therapy every morning. On nice days go out between 6-7am and soak in blue light before (and maybe a little after) the sun comes up for about 20 minutes. On dark days get the Philips GoLITE BLU Energy Light to give you the same light indoors.

5. Acquire the home based version Depression and Depression and Anxiety Recovery Program complete pack, home-based version. This is a 8 part series to give you the tools for healthy thinking and peace of mind. Cane be found here. nedleyhealthsolutions.com

6. Lavella, one capsule twice daily. This lavender oil has been shown by clinical studies to treat anxiety.

7. Ground Flaxseed 2 tbsp twice daily. Flaxseed oil is also good. Take the oil with milk (soymilk) or another protein so that the body can adsorb it better. When I was suffering from depression, I added flax seed oil every morning, with some milk, to my breakfast. It took about 3 months before my depression left me. Try as many of these steps as you can to quickly feel better.

8. Drink lots of water. Drinking a quart every morning will give you a good start for the day. You can warm it up to make it more drinkable.

9. Read SOS for Emotions by Lynn Clark , and Yourself the Truth by William Backus and take notes of the salient points that apply to you and review those notes weekly.

10. Use contrast showers twice daily most days. (1 minute cold, then 3 minutes hot, don't burn yourself!) Will detox your body and make your organs work better.

11. Read one page a day of the book Conflict and Courage by Ellen White.

12. If you are ready to act on your suicidal thought and not able to counteract those thoughts call the suicide hotline 1-800-362-8255

Depression and Its Cure

Short Interview with Dr. Neil Nedley that will give you the cure in a nutshell.

(Written earlier)
A couple of months ago a friend invited us to a seminar on depression. The speaker was Dr. Neil Nedley who runs a depression recovery program. Neil Nedley is a physician in Internal Medicine and specializes in the difficult to diagnose patient.

He has written several books on recovering from depression including the one shown here. He also has a 10-day program where 90% of the depressed patients recover.

We hope to go to this program ourselves if our Heavenly Father provides the way. My husband suffers from major depression and needs the one-on-one attention this program gives.

We have this book, Depression: The Way Out, and would recommend it to anyone fighting this condition. It has practical ways to recover from your melancholy at home and can be a lifesaver.

I would rather have a headache than depression. A few years ago I too suffered from depression and spent close to three years under its heavy burden. My recovery came after I moved away and house sat for my mother. Her place was set in the mountains of southern Oregon and the weather was mild and the evergreens gave off a healthy scent that would come riding on the breezes through my windows.

My recovery came after I moved away and house sat for my mother. Her place was set in the mountains of southern Oregon and the weather was mild and the evergreens gave off a healthy scent that would come riding on the breezes through my windows.

I spent my time hiking and taking some computer classes at the local community college. Another thing I did to combat this dread disease was to take a couple of tablespoons of cold pressed flaxseed oil each morning. I added it to a half glass of milk. The milk helped to may it drinkable and also the protein in the milk helped my body to digest the oil. Taking it plain may keep it from working the way it should.

After a few months of living this way I realized that I was having good days more than bad and I started to notice when I was downhearted and would fight it the best way I could.

Another thing that helped was NOT to indulge in sorrow.

This came about before I moved to my mom's place. One day a year or so before my recovery I was sitting in my room and thinking of all the things that made me sad. I had come to my room with medium depression and was gathering up all the things in my life that were downers.

Suddenly a strong voice spoke in my mind, don't indulge sorrow, it said. I instantly realized that it was God speaking to me and that He was displeased that I would sit there and make my depression worse by gathering up all the gloom.

I was pretty impressed and quickly dropped down to my knees and apologized for indulging in sorrowful thoughts. I also remember being a little annoyed that God gave me a reprimand instead of saying something that would comfort me.

But looking back I realize this is what I needed to hear. I had a duty to resist melancholy thoughts and even though I could not help it when depression would weigh me down I was not supposed to make it worse but to do what I could to keep my mind from giving into it.

Now that I am recovered I still don't have as much enthusiasm that I had before the depression hit. I still don't take on big responsibilities like I did. However I feel so much better and this has given me the ability to help my husband when he is down. We have high hopes for this program with Neil Nedley and hope to go soon.

After we go to the program I plan to give a update here to tell you how it went.

Another strange thing I should tell you about is how my husband reacts to vitamins. I have to be careful and give him only what he really needs. If I give him a daily vitamin his depression gets worse. However because he is a vegetarian I give him a vitamin B12 (also D3 during winter months) every few days but otherwise stay away from them.

If you take a lot of vitamins and suffer from depression you should try going off of them for 3 months and see how you feel. You might be surprised at your improvement. Also beware of fortified cereals and other foods that contains a lot of added vitamins.
