¿Cómo me curé de la depresión naturalmente?

Yo estaba durmiendo hasta 21 horas por día debido al antidepresivo que estaba tomando para la depresión. Mi médico parecía antipático. No voy a usar la palabra que, en suma, describió este tipo en mi mente. Fui adelante. Seguí tomando el medicamento todos los días durante más de dos años. Yo sabía que tenía  efectos secundarios horribles a pesar de la miríada de antidepresivos que me trataron como el  Zoloft, Celexa, Prozac, y Wellbutrin. Tambien, sabia que era mejor usar los poderosos ISRS y agonistas de la dopamina que sin ellos. ¿Por qué? ¿Cómo podría hacer eso? Pues bien, cuando se tiene casi una necesidad absolutamente innegable para poner fin a su propia vida debido a su propio infierno personal en que está viviendo, estar despierto tres horas por día es un regalo. Mejor tres que cero, ¿Verdad?

Dado que en estos días oscuros, he sido capaz de conseguir y permanecer apagado por completo de la farmacoterapia de los medicamentos antidepresivos hace más de dos años. ¿Cómo? He escrito un libro titulado La guía del Bibliotecario Médico: Ansiedad, Depresión, Bipolar, y Esquizofrenia: Nutrición y Terapias Complementarias que enseña a todos mis secretos. Sin embargo, quiero compartir con ustedes las tres cosas principales que me han salvado de la depresión clínica y la única cosa que salvó mi cerebro la última vez que tuve que tomar los antidepresivos. Listo!

Aceite de Pescado- Los Omega-3s de pescado disminuir  la inflamación en el cerebro y el cuerpo y tiene mucho que ver con el metabolismo y la salud del cerebro. Agregue esto a su régimen diario. Actualmente hay 784 artículos específicamente sobre la depresión y aceite de pescado en la base de datos MEDLINE de los médicos Americanos. El aceite de pescado es generalmente conocida, seguro y útil para una multitud de dolencias mentales y físicas. No tome demasiado de él como lo hará diluir la sangre si se toma una cantidad excesiva. Además, por lo general, debe parar el aceite de pescado un par de semanas antes de una cirugía debido a este efecto de la sangre y evitando que la coagulación durante una cirguria no es una cosa buena para sanarle.

Multivitamina con Zinc- Si usted es una mujer usar una multivitamínico para mujeres con zinc. Si eres un niño hacer lo mismo para niños. Si usted es una persona mayor, usar una multivitamina para los mayores con zinc. ¿Por qué? Si usted es deficiente en zinc, esto no es bueno para su hipocampo a cualquier edad y cuando el hipocampo, una estructura importante en el cerebro, no es saludable y  puede ser más propenso a la depresión y actúa sobre los pensamientos negativos. Existe alguna evidencia de que un nivel de zinc saludable ayudará a los niños con Trastorno por Déficit de Atención con Hiperactividad. Por el contrario, si su hipocampo está funcionando bien, debe ayudar a su salud mental en general y hacer que, en teoría, ser mejor en tareas de memoria espacial, (es decir, geometría, cálculo, o arquitectura). No tome más de la dosis diaria recomendada  de zinc, como el zinc por encima de esto nivel puede ser tóxico. Además, siempre verifique que otras píldoras de vitaminas, ya que te pueden empujar sobre la dosis, ya que también contienen zinc. Las otras vitaminas refuerzan la acción del zinc y junto con una dieta saludable como la dieta mediterránea, a la que por sí mismo se ha demostrado que actúa como un antidepresivo, usted acaba de hacer mejor llenar sus vacíos nutricionales haciendo cosas como la reducción de la inflamación que sólo puede ayudarle.

La vitamina D- La mayoría de personas tienen deficiencia de esta vitamina de Sol, especialmente en el invierno cuando los días son largos y el sol es mas débil. Uno también podría ser deficiente si viven en un clima más frío y tienen la piel más moreno. O bien, la persona con niveles bajos de vitamina D puede simplemente estar en el interior de su oficina demasiado, sin suficiente luz solar. En los Estados Unidos una de cada dos personas no obtiene suficiente vitamina D. Mi madre siempre me dijo que las personas que vivían cerca del ecuador son más felices, en general. Resulta que hay algo de verdad en esto, como muchas, muchas personas en climas más fríos, como Suecia y otros lugares tienen una incidencia mucho mayor de un trastorno depresivo llamada trastorno afectivo estacional, conocido por el acrónimo SAD en inglés. Hable con su médico acerca de la cantidad de vitamina D es seguro para usted, ya que el exceso de vitamina D, como demasiado zinc es tóxico. Siempre revise sus otras vitaminas como su complejo multivitamínico o complejos vitamínicos especializados, ya que también podrían contener vitamina D. Siempre tenga cuidado con las vitaminas y los medicamentos que usted pone en su sistema, ya que es posible que no lo sepa, pero incluso el agua en exceso puede matar.

Por lo tanto, tuve que volver a la antidepresivo Celexa hace más de dos años. Sin embargo, una cosa que hice diferente esta vez fue para reforzar mis niveles de glutatión con proteína de suero. Por lo tanto, tuve sueño saludable esta vez- no 21 horas por día de sueño. ¡Guauu! Así que, ¿qué es esto glutatión y por qué te importa? Resulta que muchos medicamentos psiquiátricos tales como antidepresivos y antipsicóticos drenan el cerebro y el cuerpo de glutatión, el principal antioxidante en los seres humanos. Esto no es bueno. Por lo tanto, cuando tomé el tipo correcto de la proteína del suero puse ese desequilibrio en equilibrio. Lo que estoy diciendo aquí es que cuando yo estaba durmiendo más de 20 horas por día, que era debido a la acción de los fármacos antidepresivos que agotan el cerebro del glutatión. Así que, ahora si alguna vez realmente necesito un antidepresivo, ya sé qué hacer para mantener un mejor estado de salud.

3 razones científicas  El budismo es bueno para la salud mental

 

Estoy empezando este artículo con una foto de Buda sentado sobre una flor de loto meditando. Voy a ser su guía con respecto a esta foto. Hay algo escondido enfrente de su cara aquí. Vamos a descubrirlo. El Buda es en el estado de la meditación, eso es obvio. Él es el Buda. Una de sus manos se ha reducido en a tierra. Tocandola. Él está sentado en la flor de loto. Allí, a la vista son las tres razones por las que el budismo es muy bueno para la salud, para la salud mental. ¿Cómo es eso?

En primer lugar, Meditar es bueno para la salud mental. Todo el mundo sabe esto. Meditar reduce la ansiedad y ayuda a la salud general del sistema inmunológico. También cuando uno medita lo suficiente se puede combatir la depresión, la ansiedad, así como otros trastornos mentales, ya que parece calmar parte del cerebro se llama la amígdala y por esto meditar ayuda con la ira, el miedo, y otra horrible para preocupaciones de la mente.

En segundo lugar, la mano de Buda está en el suelo. Antes, cuando Adán y Eva y nuestros antepasados fueron vividos no usaban zapatos. Dormían en la tierra. Ellos están siempre en contacto con la Tierra. Esto por sí mismo estaban sanos. ¿Cómo es eso? Pues resulta que los electrones procedentes de la tierra que va al cuerpo en realidad ayudan a la ansiedad y el descanso. Este es un hecho médico. Hoy en día, zapatos de goma, pisos de madera y alfombras y otras cosas bloquean el flujo natural de los electrones en nuestros cuerpos. Esta es una razón por la que somos menos saludables. ¿Se ha sentido una sensación de bienestar caminando a través de un campo de césped o en la playa? Esta es la razón porque.

En tercer lugar, no sabía que uno podía beber té de la flor de loto hasta hace poco. Pero es verdad. Té de flores lotus es el manzanilla es la de Oriente. Esto ayuda con la ansiedad. Lotus té ayuda con inquietud. Además, ayuda con un estado de ánimo más tranquilo.

Esas son las tres razones por las que, escondidos a la vista son las 3 estrategias muy naturales para la salud mental de buddhismo. Ellos son poderosos y han sido científicamente demostrado que ayuda con la salud mental y el bienestar. Los invito a ver más de mis escritos en mi página de autor Amazon. Tengo un montón de grandes ideas como esta y a la vida el universo y todo. Soy el autor de más de 50 libros en cuatro idiomas Inglés, español, francés, y portugués. Gracias por pasar por mi artículo de blog sobre el porqué el budismo es bueno para la salud mental de todo el mundo.

Por último, las enseñanzas del Buda también pueden ayudar muchas personas. Yo mismo soy un cristiano. Pero veo mucha sabiduría en las enseñanzas budistas también. Jesús fue un maestro y un modelo increíble y si usted es cristiano o no espero que se puede ver que vivió una vida increíble. Espero que también se puede ver esto sobre el Buda.

The secret to my success: Thiothixene for Paranoia

Second-Generation Antipsychotic Monotherapy?

It turns out, for me, the best drug for my paranoia, ever, is called Navane, chemical name thiothixene. I hope they NEVER discontinue this medicine. It came out in 1968, and I know much of my success in life has been directly because of this drug. It is so effective for paranoia, articles have been written about  that specific indication in MEDLINE.

I started navane first in 1992 at Stony Brook University Hospital,during my first psychotic break. Over the years, I  made the mistake of trying monotherapy of Clozaril, Abilify, Seroquel, Zyprexa, Geodon, and many others. Right now, what seems to be working great is

  • Morning 2mg Abilify
  • Evening 10mg Navane, 2mg Risperdal,

I’m getting the restful sleep I need, my mood is quite good, and I feel good in general. I AM looking forward to trying Lumateperone which may come out in 2017, as it is part of a whole new class of medicines. I’m always game to try something new, but time-tested Navane will be hard to beat.

The 3 Physical Reasons Buddhism is Good for Mental Health

 

Imagine  a photo of the Buddha seated upon a lotus flower meditating.  Let me guide you through this photo. The Buddha is meditating, that is obvious. He’s the Buddha. One of his hands is down on the ground. Touching it. He’s Seated on the lotus flower. There, in plain sight are the three reasons why Buddhism is very good for the health, for mental health. How so?

Firstly, meditating is good for the mental health. Everybody knows this. It reduces  anxiety and helps with the immune system general health. Also when one meditates enough it can combat depression, anxiety, as well as other mental disorders because it seems to calm the amygdala and this by itself helps with anger, fear, and other horrible for preoccupations of the Mind.

Secondly, the Buddha’s hand is on the ground. Back when Adam and Eve and our ancestors were roaming the Earth they did not wear shoes. They slept on the ground.. They are always in contact with the Earth. This by itself was healthy. How so? Well it turns out that the  electrons coming from the earth going to the body actually help with anxiety and rest. This is a medical fact. Today, rubber shoes, wooden floors and carpets and other things block the natural flow of electrons into our bodies. This is one reason we are less healthy. Have you ever felt a sense of well-being walking through a grassy field or on the beach? This is the reason why.

Thirdly, I did not know that one could actually drink Lotus flower tea until recently. But, it is true. Lotus flower tea is the chamomile of the East. It helps with anxiety. Lotus tea helps with restlessness. Also, it helps with a calmer State of Mind.

Those are the three reasons why, hiding in plain sight are the 3 very natural strategies for mental health. They are powerful and have been scientifically proven to help with mental health and wellbeing. I invite you to check out more of my writings on my Amazon author page. I have a lot of great insights like this and to life the universe and everything. I’m the author of over 50 books in four languages English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese. Thank you for stopping by my little blog article about why Buddhism is good for the mental health.

Finally,  the teachings of the Buddha also can be of help to many people. I myself am a Christian. But I see much wisdom in the Buddhist teachings as well. Jesus was an amazing teacher and role model and if you are Christian or not I hope you can see that he lived an amazing life. I hope you can also see this about the Buddha.

I

MCS Thursday Ramblings

The people who know me and my story know that I suffer from severe multiple chemical sensitivity these days as a result of limbic system damage due to the drug Wellbutrin which started about 3 years ago. I wish It were not so,  especially on days like today. Early this morning after having a really beautiful dream about getting a check for three hundred million dollars, I was woken up  by a sense of suffocation. I couldn’t breathe in my own bedroom. Why did this happen? I went outside to check the air, and sure enough probably somewhere New Jersey there is a manufacturing kind of release of chemical that most people are not aware of. I couldn’t breathe the air outside either. Luckly, my house is like a shiip, with airlocks. So, if the air in one room is bad, a door is closed there and it cannot contaminate the entire house. I currently have an IQ Air GCMultigas Air Purifier which new was over $1,300 including shipping and handline running on high to try to clean up my bedroom air. Hopefully cleaning up the air will not take too long.

This is the third time this has happened to me in two years. The first time I was in a local cafe and I could not leave the cafe because of the air outside. A friend at the time told me he smelled a faint smell of chemicals,  later.  I was trapped in the cafe for about 4 hours until the checmicals in the air outside cleared up- Until about 1am. The second time this happened for a period of about a month when they were working on the George Washington Bridge. I had to wear a carbon respirator around the bridge when I came within five blocks of it, forget about getting right next to it. I would have suffocated. Even low levels of chemicals in the air make me choke. and tonight was the third time this has happened to me in New York City. Unfortunate this has happened only three times in two or three years. I’m so happy I do not live in China, I do not think I could live one day there because of all the chemicals and dust and air pollution. I see many people around the city who are Asian walking around with white masks, white medical masks, and I think I understand why. I believe they are also similarly affected by chemicals and dust and dirt in the air  as I am. Chemical sensitivity is a horrible disease. What makes it worse is that there are no government programs for housing or any kind of Rights afforded to people with multiple chemical sensitivities that would us live our very difficult lives. Actually if one ever goes to a psych ward, dollars to donuts they will treat your chemical sensitivity as a psychological or psychiatric disorder. It is not a psychological or disorder. It’s not  psychosomatic. The American Medical Association does not believe it is a real disorder. They are very wrong. Psychiatric disorders generally affect the upper levels of the brain in the cerebrum. Depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, anxiety, eating disorders all occur in the Cerebrum. However multiple chemical sensitivity actually resides in the limbic system and in my case at least, a deeper part of the brain. What does that mean? That means that it is similar to a disorder of heart rate, respiration, temperature control of the body, excetera excetera. That is definitely nothing psychological. It’s a very physical reaction of the body to an over-sensitivity of the brain, sometimes described as similar to epileptic “kindling” in the brain. Yes a lot of people with depression  especially develop chemical sensitivity. I go to a psychosocial clubhouse called Fountain House, and I have met at least four people there with various degrees of chemical sensitivities. I believe this might be because of the medication a lot of times. I’ve heard of people getting chemical sensitivities due to exposure to crop fertilizes. Other ways people I have heard gotten chemical sensitivity are with sick building syndrome. What that is is when a building is very new it’s a lot of chemicals. The chemicals come from rugs, walls, paint,  and many more new construction  items. The chemicals are very noticeable and smell bad. A lot of these people are just totally disabled by their chemical sensitivities.  

It turns it out  that I created a Meetup for multiple chemical sensitivity in New York City because I wanted support. It’s called MCS in NYC,  and currently they have about 25 members. I’m no longer very active in the group, but it was good to see that there are more people in New York City area surviving with multiple chemical sensitivities. We shared stories, and  we shared experiences. We had some good people in the group. However, my MCS has gotten much better due to a external vagal nerve stimulator that I am using. What is that you ask? It is called the auri-stim 1000. Now  the lady I have in my life right now sometimes wears perfumes and I do not choke. She smells great. That in itself is a huge feat. I wrote a book called the medical Librarian’s Guide to Multiple Chemical Sensitivities. Basically everything that’s in the book is on my blog except for a few resources. If you have multiple chemical sensitivities I urge you so either read my blog or click tag MCS or buy the book if you want information in an  easily digestible format.

I hope someday that people with multiple chemical sensitivities will be protected by the government of the United States and multiple chemical sensitivity will be recognized as a legitimate physical disorder.  Until then, we  who have it will suffer and sometimes die.

The last thing I want to say about multiple chemical sensitivity is that I believe the page on Wikipedia is being controlled by somebody or some group that doesn’t want people to know severe chemical sensitivities even exist as a rare disorder. Why do I say this? Because I and other professionals who have studied  this order have tried to edit the page, and we were denied sharing our knowledge. For example there over 300 articles about chemical sensitivities on Medline, that is a quantifiable fact. That fact was not allowed on Wikipedia page about MCS. I know also of people who are doing doctorates and postdoctoral work on environmental sensitivities who tried to edit the article on Wikipedia who were denied the right. The chemical industry is a huge multibillion-dollar industry. That being said that does not give them the right to do this. Maybe it is not they. However I don’t know who else will be doing this and why. It’s a very strange world we live in sometimes.

Thanks for sharing this Thursday morning stream of thought with me, my friends.

Whey, Invokana, and Kidney Pain

Call me crazy, but I was having pretty serious kidney pain a week ago that I believe was caused by the combination of whey and the diabetes medicine Invokana. I remembered that Invokana and whey both can stress the kidneys. If you are taking Invokana and taking whey, that might not be a good thing. I stopped the Invokana and have been taking the whey for a few days now and feel good. If you are having kidney pain and are taking Invokana and whey, you might have your reason right there! Always listen to your body!

Side Effect information for Invokana:

5.3 Acute Kidney Injury and Impairment in Renal Function

INVOKANA causes intravascular volume contraction [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS (5.1)] and can cause renal impairment [see ADVERSE REACTIONS (6.1)]. There have been postmarketing reports of acute kidney injury, some requiring hospitalization and dialysis, in patients receiving INVOKANA; some reports involved patients younger than 65 years of age.

 

A high protein diet can stress the kidneys. I was taking 60g of whey per day. No bueno.

Advanced glycation end products and nephrotoxicity of high-protein diets.

Abstract: The popularity of high-protein diets has surged recently as obesity has become more and more common in the United States and other developed nations. In view of the high prevalence of type 2 diabetes and chronic kidney disease among obese people, it is important to understand potential effects of high-protein diets on the kidney. The hypothesis that high-protein diets are nephrotoxic because of their excessive dietary advanced glycation end product (AGE) content and an increased amino acid load that enhances AGE formation in situ was explored. This review discusses the following evidence: (1) High-protein diets are deleterious to the kidney; (2) AGE are metabolic mediators of kidney damage; (3) dietary protein-derived AGE contribute to proinflammatory and pro-oxidative processes in diabetes and kidney disease; and (4) dietary protein-derived AGE produce functional and structural abnormalities that are involved in kidney damage. Future research should consider dietary AGE as a potential therapeutic target for kidney disease in obesity, diabetes, and perhaps other causes of chronic kidney disease.

How I cured Myself of Clinical Depression Naturally

I was sleeping up to 21 hours per day due to the antidepressant I was taking for clinical depression. My doctor seemed unsympathetic. I will not use the word that, in sum, described this guy in my mind. I soldiered on. I kept taking the medicine every day for more than two years. I knew despite the horrible side effects I was having from the myriad antidepressants they tried me on, Zoloft, Celexa, Prozac, and Wellbutrin I was better off using the powerful SSRI and Dopamine Agonists than without them. Why? How could that possibly be? Well, when you have almost an absolutely undeniable urge to end your own life due to your own personal hell you are living in, being awake three hours per day is a gift. Better three than zero, right?

Since these dark days, I have been able to get off and stay off completely from the pharmacotherapy of antidepressant medicines for over two years. How? I’ve written a book called Guide to Natural Mental Health: Anxiety, Bipolar, Depression, Schizophrenia, and Digital Addiction that teaches all my secrets. However, I want to share with you the three main things that have saved me from clinical depression and the one thing that saved my brain the last time I had to take the antidepressants. Ready. Set. Go!

Fish Oil- The Omega3s of fish oil decrease inflammation in the brain and body and have a lot to do with the metabolism and health of the brain. Add this to your daily regimen. Currently there are 784 articles specifically about DEPRESSION AND FISH OIL on MEDLINE the doctors’s database. Fish oil is generally well-known, safe, and helpful for a multitude of mental and physical ailments. Do not take too much of it as it will thin your blood if you take an excessive amount. Also, you generally must stop fish oil a few weeks before a surgery due to this thinning of the blood and preventing it from clotting which is no bueno when you are getting cut open.

Men’s Multivitamin with Zinc- If you are a woman get a women’s multivitamin with zinc. If you are a kid do the kids thing. If you are a senior, do the senior thing. Why? If you are deficient in zinc, this is not good for your hippocampus at any age and when your hippocampus, an important structure in your brain, is not healthy and happy you may be more prone to depression and actually acting on negative thoughts. There is some evidence that a healthy zinc level will help children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Conversely, if your hippocampus is functioning well, it should help your overall mental health and make you, theoretically,  be better at spatial memory tasks, (i.e. geometry, calculus, or architecture). Do not take more than the RDA, recommended daily allowance of zinc, as zinc in excess of this can be toxic. Also, always check your other vitamin pills as they might push you over the dose because they also contain zinc. The other vitamins bolster the action of the zinc and along with a healthy diet like the Mediterannean diet, which by itself has shown to act as an antidepressant, you’ll just do better filling in your nutritional gaps doing things like reducing inflammation which can only help.

Vitamin D- Most people are deficient in this “Sunshine” vitamin, especially in the winter when days are long and the sun is weak. One might also be deficient if they live in a colder climate and have darker skin. Or, the person with low levels of vitamin D may just be indoors in their office too much. In the United States about one in two people gets insufficient Vitamin D. Madre always told me that people who lived near the equator were happier, in general. It turns out that there is some truth in this, as many, many people in colder climes such as Sweden and other places have a much higher incidence of a depressive disorder called Seasonal Affective Disorder, man times known by the acronym SAD. Talk to your doctor about how much vitamin D is safe for you, as too much vitamin D, like too much zinc is toxic. Always check your other vitamins like your multivitamin or specialized vitamin complexes, as they might also contain vitamin D. Always be careful with vitamins and drugs you put into your system, as you may not know it but even water in excess can kill you.

So, I had to get back on the antidepressant Celexa more than two years ago. But, one thing I did differently this time was to bolster my glutathione levels with whey protein. So, I had a healthy sleep schedule- not 21 hours per day of sleep. Wow! So, what is this glutathione and why should you care? It turns out that many psychiatric medications such as antidepressants and antipsychotics drain the brain and body of glutathione, the master antioxidant in humans. This is not a good thing. So, when I took the right kind of whey protein I put that disbalance back in balance. What I am saying here is that when I was sleeping over 20 hours per day, it was due to the action of the antidepressant drugs depleting my brain of glutathione. So, now if I ever really need an antidepressant, I know what to do to keep a better state of health.

Vitamin E helps Dystonia

I started having serious dystonias of the tongue, where the tongue would go back in my throat until I would choke. I had to take benzotropine 2mg often to avoid choking to death. It turns out a supplement with 400IU Vitamin E and 25mg of Selenium stopped that problem for me. It turns out I’m not the only one to use vitamin E to avoid problems like this.

Vitamin E treatment in tardive dystonia.

Dannon PN1, Grunhaus L, Iancu I, Braf A, Lepkifker E.

Author information

Abstract

Tardive dystonia is a disorder characterized by abnormally sustained posturing associated with the use of dopamine-receptor blocking agents such as antipsychotic drugs. However, the structural pathologic and pathophysiologic features of this disorder are unknown, and no consistently effective pharmacologic treatment is available. Patients with tardive dystonia mostly are young men. We present the case of one substantially improved with treatment by 1200 mg/d (IU) of vitamin E.
