¿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?

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!

Probablemente se beneficiaría de los medicamentos  también, pero que no había comido carne roja durante más de tres años. Eso me hice pensar.

Le dije a su trastorno de pánico probablemente mejorará si ella tomó un suplemento de hierro con una píldora de vitaminas del complejo B. Me rompe el corazón que le hablaba como un experto, pero no creo que alguna vez me escuchó. He estado incorrecto antes, pero aquí, hierro y B6 solamente pudo ayudar.

Bajas concentraciones séricas de vitamina B6 y hierro están relacionados con ataques de pánico y ataque de hiperventilación.Mikawa Y1, Mizobuchi S, M Egi, Morita K.

Resumen:

Pacientes sometidos a un ataque de pánico (PA) o un ataque de hiperventilación (HVA) a veces son ingresados en los servicios de emergencia (eds). Reducción de nivel de serotonina es conocida como una de las causas de PA y HVA. La serotonina se sintetiza a partir de triptófano. Para la síntesis de serotonina, la vitamina B6 (Vit B6) y el juego de hierro papeles importantes como cofactores. Para aclarar la fisiopatología de la PA y HVA, se investigaron los niveles séricos de vitaminas B2, B6 y B12 y hierro en pacientes con PA o HVA asistir a un servicio de urgencias. Medimos cada parámetro en 21 pacientes PA o HVA y se compararon los valores con los de 20 voluntarios. Se encontró que tanto los niveles de Vit B6 y de hierro fueron significativamente inferiores en el grupo de PA / HVA que en el grupo de voluntarios. No hubo diferencia significativa en los niveles séricos de vitaminas B2 o B12. Estos resultados sugieren que las concentraciones séricas bajas de Vit B6 y hierro están involucrados en PA y HVA. Se necesitan más estudios para aclarar los mecanismos implicados en tales diferencias.

Panic, Iron, and B6 – You CAN Feel better!

Panic, Iron, and B6: Helping Panic Disorder, Naturally with Vitamins and Minerals

Panic, Iron, and B6
An Easy to read and helpful book
I found the fascinating article below trying to help a dear girlfriend who was suffering from a serious panic disorder. Although she would probably benefit from SSRIs also, she had not eaten red meat for more than three years. That made me think. I was right in my hunch that although she was physically healthy in terms of not being anemic, she was probably mildly deficient in iron because of not touching meat for so long. I told her her panic disorder would probably get better if she took an iron supplement with a b-complex vitamin pill. It breaks my heart that I spoke to her as an expert, but I do not think she ever heard me. I have been wrong before, but here, iron and B6 would have only helped her.  We finally broke up due to her untreated depression. If you read this article, my sweet, you will be reading the Spanish translation I will do for only you, although eventually, thousands of Spanish-speakers will benefit from the research I did for you, my love. I wish you health and happiness, lovely!
Kisses,
Will

Low serum concentrations of vitamin B6 and iron are related to panic attack and hyperventilation attack.Mikawa Y1, Mizobuchi S, Egi M, Morita K.
Author information

Abstract

Patients undergoing a panic attack (PA) or a hyperventilation attack (HVA) are sometimes admitted to emergency departments (EDs). Reduced serotonin level is known as one of the causes of PA and HVA. Serotonin is synthesized from tryptophan. For the synthesis of serotonin, vitamin B6 (Vit B6) and iron play important roles as cofactors. To clarify the pathophysiology of PA and HVA, we investigated the serum levels of vitamins B2, B6, and B12 and iron in patients with PA or HVA attending an ED. We measured each parameter in 21 PA or HVA patients and compared the values with those from 20 volunteers. We found that both Vit B6 and iron levels were significantly lower in the PA/HVA group than in the volunteer group. There was no significant difference in the serum levels of vitamins B2 or B12. These results suggest that low serum concentrations of Vit B6 and iron are involved in PA and HVA. Further studies are needed to clarify the mechanisms involved in such differences.

The Internet is Killing You

An Excerpt from my book, Natural Weight Loss and Diabetes Control: The Medical Librarian’s Annotated Guide by William Jiang, MLS. Amazon Digital Services LLC, Published June 3, 2016.

Indeed, there is a “chicken and egg” relationship between depression and ten of the top ten causes of death in the United States, where sometimes depression comes before the physical disease or vice-versa. Clinical depression is mixed with: cancer, heart disease, asthma, chronic stress, stroke, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and other dementias, kidney disease, and yes even suicide. The only top causes of death that are not directly tied to depression are influenza and dying in an accident, and these two are debatable… Read the Rest on Medium.com

Book Review: 5.0 out of 5 stars- Good mental hygiene improves your life By Whistlers Mom Amazon TOP 500 REVIEWER

August 19, 2015
Format: Kindle Edition

When I was young, many people rejected the importance of dental hygiene. They Guide to Natural Mental Health Reviewpreferred to believe that they developed cavities because they had “soft teeth.” That a woman would lose a tooth for every baby she gave birth to. That if their grandparents finished up toothless, they were doomed to the same fate. It was all bad luck and genetics and brushing, flossing, good diet, and not using tobacco would make no difference.

Today, most people understand the importance of good dental hygiene, but we’re still in the Dark Ages when it comes to committing to good mental hygiene. Mental illness is scary and embarrassing and seems to strike like a bolt of thunder. In a laudable attempt to reduce the stigma of mental illness, experts stress that it may be hereditary or a result of chemical imbalances. Either way, it’s out of our control, right?

This author is a medical librarian and himself a survivor of mental illness. On both scores, he understands the importance of being well-informed. He has read thousands of articles in medical journals most of them describing the findings of clinical research in the areas of depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and internet addictions. He introduces these papers and gives a brief summing up of their critical points, with special emphasis on findings which relate to self-help measures. AND he tells you the web sites where you can read the entire article yourself.

I approached this book with great misgivings. I grew up at a time when doctors were still struggling to convince the general public that they were offering something worth paying for. They did it by promoting the idea that health is only understandable by those who have gone to medical school and that traditional practices and wisdom were “old wives tales” – silly and probably dangerous. Many (most, really) books about “alternative medicine” are poorly researched and have a strong mercenary bias. “Massive doses of dandelion tea cured my cancer and I sell the only dandelion tea mix that works.” You know the sort of thing.

This author isn’t going to get rich selling his book and I don’t believe that he wrote it with that intent. He does believe passionately that we can help ourselves to better mental health by practicing good mental hygiene – diet, exercise, prayer, and developing strong personal relationships. Modern medicine is beginning to adopt the same idea and these articles represent studies and tests from well-known and well-respected medical centers, universities, and organizations. This is not snake oil, but knowledge gleaned from scientific research.

So why doesn’t everyone know about it? Because a pharmaceutical company can spend billions of dollars yearly telling the public about the benefits of its products, but there’s no profit in telling you that turning your computer off and talking to a friend or taking a walk (or better yet, both at once!) will make you feel better.

When it comes to the workings of the mind, we are only beginning to explore a new frontier. In the future, our present “knowledge” will be laughable. But we can use the latest ideas and combine them with traditional wisdom to help ourselves. You are your own best doctor and (whether it’s physical or mental illness) the best out-comes result when the patient and those who love him are well-informed and taking an active role in the process.

***** Mr. Jiang very kindly gave me a copy of his book, but that didn’t influence my opinions one bit! I skimmed it and now I’m re-reading the sections that are of special interest to me. It’s a book that should be in every household that has been affected by mental illness. That’s all of us, right?

Review- Shrinks: The Untold Story of Psychiatry by Jeffrey A. Lieberman

5.0 out of 5 stars We have come quite a way, and have miles to go before we sleep,1
November 16, 2015
This review is from: Shrinks: The Untold Story of Psychiatry (Kindle Edition)
I liked the historical treatment of American and European psychiatry in “Shrinks”. It was interesting to see the big picture from the point of view of a former American Psychiatric Association President. After reading this book, I thank God for modern psychiatric treatments. Why? Before the treatments we now have, life was generally much shorter for mental patients, and if someone was seriously ill with depression, bipolar, schizophrenia, or anxiety problems, after onset of their illness, they may have been imprisoned for the rest of their natural lives in an asylum. The rest of their existence would be a nightmare from which there was no escape. Psychiatry has a way to go still, but reading how life was before modern psychiatric medicine makes one appreciate the advances made so far.

4th Season Of Healthy Minds with Dr. Jeff Borenstein to Premiere on PBS

4th Season Of Healthy Minds with Dr. Jeff Borenstein to premiere on PBS

I had the memorable pleasure of meeting and talking with Dr. Jeff Borenstein at the New York State Psychiatric Institute / Columbia Psychiatry Patient and Family Library while writing my little autobiography about my own “story of madness and story of hope” about living with schizophrenia: A Schizophrenic Will. I found Dr. Borenstein down-to-earth yet visionary, a rare combination. The first and second seasons of Healthy Minds were AMAZING! I’m sure this fourth season will be even better somehow. Well done Dr. Borestein, Brain and Behavior Foundation, and all your partners! I can’t wait to get a gift DVD set to review here on www.mentalhealthbooks.net !
