My Natural Depression Cure

My friends, my name is William Jiang, MLS and I am the author of 72 books in English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese. I just released a book called My Natural Depression Fix: The Reason I was Featured in the New York Times and on CBS News (Aug 15, 2018), as the ladylove of my life explained to me that my books are generally too dense, and many people would just prefer a ‘recipe” for health. That book is available on Amazon.com for a small fee. 

There are three books I believe can transform psychiatry as we know it. Drugs are useful sure. However, they control symptoms. I have been blessed to find a way to use natural techniques to cure schizophrenia and depression. William Walsh’s book that describes his powerful technique of methylation mostly depends on methyl B vitamins. I did not know that you could overmethylate. A doctor told me to cut back on my B vitamins as I was high, after taking 1 pill of Thorne Methyl Guard Plus, daily. I called Thorne, and the agent I talked to told me there was no problem in my taking 3 pills per day. Despite my gut feeling, I followed the Thorne representative’s advice. On August 27th, 2018 I damaged the mitocondria of my heart because the Thorne Methyl Guard Plus has way too much B12 in it. So the Plus, for me, was a minus. Now, because of the overmethylation due to the Thorne Product, I have a dangerous mitocondrial cardiomyopathy, and I pray I may be healed, but if not I leave this gift for you. If I post nothing else on my blog you will know what happened to me, that my life was lived in service to others, and all I ask is a small prayer from you, my friend, and I hope you find safe healing!

The three books that I feel can revolutionize psychiatry are the following

Nutrient Power: Heal Your Biochemistry and Heal Your Brain Kindle Edition by William J. Walsh, MDNatural Depression Cure Book William J Walsh

Psychiatry has made great advances in the past fifty years but needs a new direction. Today’s emphasis on psychiatric drugs will not stand the test of time. Recent advances in epigenetics and the molecular biology of the brain have provided a roadmap for the development of effective, natural, drug-free therapies that do not produce serious side effects. Psychiatric medications have served society well over the last fifty years, but the need for drug therapies will fade away as science advances.  

Nutrient Power presents a science-based nutrient therapy system that can help millions of people diagnosed with mental disorders. This approach recognizes that nutrient imbalances can alter brain levels of key neurotransmitters, disrupt gene expression of proteins and enzymes, and cripple the body’s protection against environmental toxins. The author’s database containing millions of chemical factors in blood, urine, and tissues has identified brain-changing nutrient imbalances in patients diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism, behavior disorders, depression, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer’s disease. This book describes individualized nutrient therapy treatments that have produced thousands of reports of recovery. Walsh’s approach is more scientific than the trial-and-error use of psychiatric drugs and is aimed at a true normalization of the brain.  

Depression, schizophrenia, and ADHD are umbrella terms that encompass disorders with widely differing brain chemistries and symptoms. Nutrient Power describes nutrient therapies tailored to specific types. Other book highlights include the Walsh Theory of Schizophrenia, a new way to look at autism, a promising new treatment for Alzheimer’s, and recommendations for reducing crime and violence.

The Medical Librarian’s Guide to Natural Mental Health: Anxiety, Bipolar, Depression, Schizophrenia, and Digital Addiction: Nutrition, and Complementary Therapies, 4th edition by William Jiang, MLS

Author William Jiang, MLS is a former Columbia Psychiatry library chief, the author of more than 60 books in English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese, and has been featured in the New York Times and CBS News, as well as other major mental health news outlets. This is the 3rd edition of Mr. Jiang’s best-selling book. See the new edition titled “The Medical Librarian’s Guide to Natural Mental Health: Anxiety, Bipolar, Depression, Schizophrenia, and Digital Addiction: Nutrition, and Complementary Therapies, 4th edition.”

From the book jacket: “In sum, 1,000 years ago, if somebody had a mental health issue, they told the patient to pray about it, take this or that herb, rest, and take care of themselves- their body being their temple. That all changed when the first of the anti-psychotics, the major class of drug used to treat psychosis, was discovered in France in 1952, named chlorpromazine, more commonly known as Thorazine. Thorazine secured FDA approval on March 26, 1954 as the first psychiatric medication. Since then for pretty much all mental illnesses, the advice has been. Don’t pray, don’t take that supplement, don’t worry about anything, just take this drug. Now, with the nutritional psychiatry movement, medicine is incorporating the wisdom of the ages with the science of modern psychiatric treatments to reduce human suffering and increase mental wellness as never before, and it is about time.” -William Jiang, MLS

The thrust of this book is nutrition and complementary therapies for digital addiction, anxiety, bipolar, depression, and schizophrenia. Truisms that have been passed down through the ages about mental health that have stood the rigors of scientific inquiry are presented. How does belief make one’s brain stronger? The role of nutrition in ameliorating anxiety, bipolar, depression, and schizophrenia is discussed. Light is thrown on the benefits of meditation, yoga, aromatherapy, exercise, the healing power of music, and the detrimental effects of playing too many video games or too much electronic stimulation. The effect of light on bipolar disorder and the importance of good sleep hygiene is underlined. A question relevant to many of us, “What are the effects of being indoors all the time?” is delved into. A long list of things that can be helpful for ameliorating depression is presented including: natural herbal remedies, meditation, religion, yoga, the effect of too much or too little light, the role of exercise in fighting depression, the role of music on the mood, the role of a positive social network in recovery, the role of pets, the harmful effects of the digital lives we lead, and the healing power of scent. Finally, the amazing fact that nutrition can sometimes prevent psychosis or depression in its beginning stages before it becomes a fully-blown problem is presented. Many exciting and useful additional mental health tips are added to fourth edition. This is a book packed with word-class tips from a leader in natural mental health.

That book is available on Amazon.com for a small fee. Today I would like to share an experience that I was blessed to have with you. I was able to stop anti-psychotic medications for my paranoid schizophrenia disease for six days, due to dabbing CBD Terpsolate  (see my CBD Resources Page) and also with a natural treatment pioneered by Dr. William J Walsh. However, I must tell you, that this knowledge came at a high price. If you decide to try anything that I am writing about, be sure to get a good psychiatrist affiliated with William Walsh, MD to avoid any harm to yourself. What I did to myself was due to pride and ignorance and could have totally be avoided. You can find a Dr Walsh practitioner if you go to the “Contact Us” link here https://www.walshinstitute.org. A mix of low dose anti-psychotics, acupuncture, and my Nutritional Psychiatry techniques probably would have been the ideal treatment for me.

My nutritional psychiatry fix for paranoid schizophrenia may have come at a high price

I am including you in this open letter because I want you to know that after 26 years on antipsychotics, I have happily stumbled upon methylation which, for many with paranoid schizophrenia  is a b vitamin therapy that really works, just like vitamin C to scurvy. How so? It turns out the last time I went to Columbia Psychiatry I got the genetic test for my paranoid schizophrenia disorder, and the test showed I have low activity at the MTHFR gene, so I have very high levels of Homocysteine in my blood which directly CAUSED my psychiatric disorder. So, I CURED my disorder with b vitamin therapy, which makes it much like scurvy, an easily treated vitamin deficiency. So that was the blessing I received 5 days ago, a Life without mental illness,  as I have not taken ANY MEDICINE for 5 days and I am mentally well-balanced, strong, happy, and more intelligent than ever.

Now the bad news, because I took a supplement called Thorne Methyl Guard Plus, I am convinced that I have altered the mitochondrial function of my heart. Luckily, this may not be fatal, as I keep waking up in the mornings after days and nights of needing bed rest from a weak-feeling heart. This has happened to me ever since a horrible experience on the 27th of August when I was trying to go to sleep after a day of 3 normal and healthy meals, 2 times at the gym, and a loving date with my lovely lady Sandy, a normal day. At about midnight I felt such low energy levels that despite 12 cups of coffee, I felt tired. So, I was taken to Saint Luke’s ER, there I had weakness, strange tremors, strong vertigo, and I felt like fainting between 12am and 3am, about 3am I started to feel better, but it was a horrific night that I am glad I survived that night.

Yesterday, I went with my mother to the Allen Pavillion because I felt so weak that it was hard to talk or breathe I lay comatose in a gurney until 7pm. But because of a 1000 ml saline infusion, I not only got out of bed but I went home on public transport and worked out vigorously for 45 minutes at the gym where I did 2 sets of curls with 40 lbs and 30 minutes on the bike. Strange? Yes, but it points to mitochondrial function as it seems the Potassium-Sodium ion pump is crazy overactive, so the NaCl I got at the ER gave me great, not manic energy due to an increase of ATP generation.  Potassium would seem to have the opposite effect.

The high ATP generation that I experienced with sodium from the Na-K Ion Pump of my my heart mitochondria seems to be much lower than my normal baseline. So, I am on bed rest, currently. Furthermore,  the last 2 nights my heartbeat got so faint while attempting to go to sleep that I did not expect to wake up. But, I keep waking up and breathing, thank God. The Greeks have an old saying “With breath there is hope”. Today, this morning, I wanted to share my amazing news with you. I will paste below the letter I wrote to 3 top medical investigators whose work directly spoke to my current situation.  Please pray for me. The blessing of mental health that I have received could have come without the curse of mitochondrial heart problems, for sure. In the future, I hope many will receive this gift of health with routine, cheap, and intelligent genetic testing of especially the MTHFR gene for people experiencing paranoid schizophrenia as it is really just a vitamin issue.

I wrote the above text this morning. I am writing these last paragraphs tonight as I feel very strange, but content.  I filed papers today at 111 Center Street to change my legal name for free today to William Abe Christiano. I am dying penniless, if I am dying. I have never been penniless, and I cannot express how happy I am do possibly do so. It is written “The love of money is the root of all evil.” I have renounced any claims to money in this world in the face those who love money, and this makes me very happy. Also I dedicated my life’s work to writing books that have touched thousands of lives. They say you do not make it big until you are dead. Ha. We will see about that. I feel I sort of passed a test in this lifetime. I did not have an easy life. That is just a fact. I was not nor am I a perfect man now. However, about six months ago I felt I would go to heaven when I died, a change from feeling I would go to hell. My life changed completely for the better after checking myself into Columbia White Plains about 5 years ago with rage issues caused by the partial dopamine agonist Abilify see my #1 ranked article on Google for “Abilify and Rage”. I made the life-defining decision to check myself in as a Christian, a big change from the avowed atheist of age 8. Blessings have been rolling in since that day. They say of the most high cometh healing on a building near my former job at Columbia Psychiatry. I feel honored to have found natural cures for Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, Diabetes, Major Depression, Tardive Lingual Myoclonus, and Paranoid Schizophrenia. I do not know what I did to deserve that distinction, but I am grateful. I have an appointment a day after Labor Day 2018 for a free waiver of fees associated with my aforementioned name change. It will be 26 years to the day after I got sick on Labor Day 1992. That’s feels like destiny.

I believe overmethylation caused irreversible oxidative damage to my mitochondrial DNA. I had an amazing and beautiful  day today. I felt great and amazing and alive and whole for much of the day because I was sane and supporting my mitochondrial DNA ATP production with a small dose of carnitine and CBD. What a blessing. I talked to mom about my final wishes and she said yes. I hope to be buried next to my Uncle Lee who I am excited to meet in person again. I loved having a letter writing relationship with him years ago, before he passed. It will be good to be surrounded by family. Mom said yes to both my final requests. I pray I live a long life, but I feel tonight as the therapies I have been using to boost my health today wear off, I feel dangerous energy fluxes in my chest. I say good night, my friends. Good health to you. And, God bless. I hope to meet my Celestial Father if I pass tonight. I am proud of my life. I have tried to be humble. God knows I talked too much and I call myself “bobo” or dumb dumb in Spanish. I feel today I was humble like a lion. I hope to see all of you soon, my friends, here or in the hereafter. I will take a small bit of carnitine tonight to try to delay what may be an inevitable myocaridal

In Faith,
William Abe Christiano

PS I want it publically known that all my Intellectual Property on my passing with go  to go to my good friend and sweetheart Sandra. I do not wish to use the rest of her name as I want to protect her privacy, but I want my beloved mother Marye Jiang to set up my best friend with my 72 books in print, on the Kindle store, and on Audible.  

PSS This is the letter I sent to the author of the best article I could find on my issue.

Dear Dr Myers,

I loved your article titled “Mitochondrial Cardiomyopathy: Pathophysiology, Diagnosis, and Management”. It was a tour de force about a little-known topic. In my case the Mitocondrial Cardiomyopathy was caused by B12, which  is like a double-edged sword, for sure. Not many know the dangers of high B12. So, I need a bit of advice. I now suffer from this life-threatening mitocondrial cardiomiopathy that is invisible to xray, ecg, and on the troponin test due to an over-the-counter vitamin pill called Methyl Guard Plus by Thorne Labs that had a mix of methylating vitamins and a HUGE dose of B12, hence the Plus.  I am using methylating vitamins for better health. I have loved the effects of the methylating, as someone who, apparently, had high high homocysteine levels for years, all my life. I even called them to ask if it would be ok to try their recommended dose of 3 pills which contain 3mg of B12 per day or a crazy 125,000%. They said to go for it. I feel this product is dangerous. My question to you good doctor, is do you believe the damage to my heart will resolve when the b12 levels in my body drop? The reason I ask is that because I do not wish to take them to court if there is no permanent damage done, I just want to warn them about their product. I do not wish to have any other people hurt by this product. They need to take action, in any case.

Thanks!

Salud!

PSSS I will personally put in a lawsuit against Thorne Laboratories if I survive. If not, I want my mother and my Sandra to be the beneficiaries of this lawsuit. They are my two favorite ladies, as annoying as they are. I want them to have any monies due to the damages on my person, and I definitely do not want this stupid mistake to happen to ANYBODY ELSE. It is difficult to believe I could die from this tonteria.
****
Morning of August 31st, 2018
I was shocked and ecstatic to wake up this morning. I keep being blessed to wake up to see the dawn. I felt very weak this morning, but because of mitocondrial stacks and techniques I will try to get some help today from Columbia for my condition. Let’s see if God wants them to cure me. Nothing is impossible for God. So, anyway, this makes 6 days now with no antipsychotics, and I’m quite sane. I will be heading to see my psychiatrist today as well as my good friend and hero Dr. Lieberman to try to say hello briefly and drop off my little story about my vitamin cure. Let’s see how good these doctors can be! I have felt for years that Columbia Psychiatry is like my second family. Family always tries their best for each other. True story! Pusissant!

The Sensitives Documentary- A Review and Free Book Excerpt about Multiple Chemical Senstitivity

As someone who has MCS otherwise known as Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, I wanted to give my review of the movie “The Sensitives Documentary”. It is a sad, hopeless movie for me. These people are where I was in life two years ago. I have gotten much better, thank goodness due to my investigations and my training as a medical librarian. I will give in one sentence the things that have helped me most: increasing glutathione in my brain and body, taurine, occasional DHEA, and an external vagal nerve stimulator. I have become so insensitive to chemicals, luckily, that I have been able to kiss my beautiful Colombian ladyfriend on the neck where she has sprayed perfume, and I do not get sick. I can go to bathrooms that reek of fragrance and use them as they are meant to be used. I am much better. MCS is probably a constellation of problems, but for me it is definitely primarily a limbic system disorder. It probably is for many people. That being said although the things I espouse worked for me, they may not work for you. But I believe in helping my fellow travelers, so here you go.

I have been using the Auri-Stim 1000, which is a Vagal Nerve Stimulator that is not FDA approved, but it has been used in a bunch of clinical trials and is SAFE. I have been using it for two years. The two major problems with this device are one, the battery and logic sometimes goes off, so I have to buy another one, and they are $800. So, they are not cheap. But, I only have to use it once every week or so for 20 minutes, and the rest of the week is just great. According to my studies, the MCS affects the limbic system as epilepsy affects the brain, though a process called kindling, which just means that my limbic system is way too sensitive. A mix of Wellbutrin and Abilify gave my my MCS. The Sensitives Documentary reminded me that I want to spread the message that hope is there for people like me. I have shared my story on Medium a offshoot of Huffington Post before. But, I want to tell people also I am going for a stronger Vagal Nerve Stimulator that is approved by the FDA. It is called the GammaCore device. It’s FDA approved for cluster headaches. I have a feeling, it will help more than the weak Vagal Nerve Stimulator that I am currently using, and my neurologist has no problems with me getting it for an off-label use. So, I am just waiting to get the money and the paperwork done for that to happen. I will report in, after I get the GammaCore results. All the best. -William Jiang, MLS  The following is an excerpt from my intentionally low-cost book,  MCS Cure? The best Strategies of a Former Medical Library Chief and MCS Survivor. Somebody gave the book 1 star on Amazon not because the content was not potentially helpful, but because the contents of the book came from my blog. That was sad, as I only keep this book on the market to help people. The one star is discouraging, and many people who might benefit from it will not because of that.  Also, now that blog has crashed, I feel lucky these writings are still available anywhere. Anyways, here is the free excerpt, I hope if you have Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) and/or are inspired by The Sensitives Documentary to find treatments for MCS for yourself, a loved one that you find some healing in my words.  If you are a scientist working on Vagal Nerve Stimulation or you are working on Environmental Sensitivities or Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, I invite you to collaborate. All the best…

MCS Cure? The Medical Librarian’s Guide to Multiple Chemical Sensitivity

By William Jiang, MLS

Introduction

There are a lot of theories and scams out there about MCS, otherwise known as, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, TILT or Toxicant Induced Lack of Tolerance in English, SQM or Sensibilidad Quimica Multiple in Spanish, and hypersensibilite chemie multiple in French. It is called other things in other languages, and I only know the above languages really well, so I will stick with those languages when I talk about MCS around the world. This book consists of articles I have written about MCS, culminating in an article that has given me my life back. I’m still chemically sensitive; however, now I can do things like go to Planet Fitness which is awash with chemicals all the time, I don’t fear travelling in New York City, I can take a cab that uses an air freshener and not feel sick. The list goes on, and I am so happy to share this information with you. I’m  not saying what works for me will definitely work for you, but it might.

So, who am I, and why should you take anything I say seriously? Well, I was a medical library Chief at Columbia Psychiatry for almost a decade, and I have written over thirty informative books that do not hype anything. I actually have a Masters of Library Science, so in a court of law, I would just on that fact, be eligible to give expert testimony. As a medical librarian I am very particular as to the information sources to which I lend credibility. There is so much misinformation on there on Google, and there is no way that anybody could sift all the gold from all the dross. So, I like to think my books are held to a higher standard.  All that being said, I will not be held liable to any use or misuse of the information presented in this book. Yes, all of the information is from quality resources; however, everybody reacts differently, in my experience to medical science. For example, antihistamines are amazingly efficacious and work as intended for most. Indeed that is why the United States Food and Drug Association classifies it as an OTC, or over the counter drug, it is deemed very safe by the FDA.. However, some people experience panic attacks when they take a benadryl, and so it goes. One never knows.

What is MCS?

Imagine you are seated comfortably among friends at a restaurant, until a waiter came up to your table to ostensibly make you all more at ease, and cleaned your table. You suddenly start choking due to the cleaner your server used, and you are forced to run out of the restaurant, ruining your fun evening. Worse still, this kind of situation happens more often than not. Maybe you have MCS.

Multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) is a chronic medical condition and syndrome characterized by symptoms that the affected person attributes to low-level chemical exposures to commonly used chemicals, as presented in the above MCS Video. Commonly attributed substances include scented products, pesticides, plastics, synthetic fabrics, smoke, petroleum products, and paint fumes.

Apparently, MCS is partly a disorder of the limbic region of the brain, and can be treated by Low Dose Antigen therapy or nutraceuticals. In the future it may be treated with brain stimulation techniques other than ECT which only works a few days after it is given.

The Evidence

Australia, Germany (2000), Austria (2001), Japan (2009), Switzerland (2010), Denmark (2012), Spain and Canada (2014) all recognize Multiple Chemical Sensitivity as a medical condition.  As of December 2015, There are 336 articles pertaining to “mcs chemical sensitivity” on MEDLINE. It makes one wonder why the most powerful association of doctors in the world does not endorse MCS as a disorder. It would make things a whole lot easier for those with MCS in America, if the AMA would change their position, and it would surely save lives. Even the venerable Financial Times (UK) gives it more attention than the AMA. Let’s hope the AMA changes its tune before more Americans die unnecessarily.

MCS News as of June 21st, 2016

The Mainstream press in the English language is starting to cover Chemical Sensitivity. The following are a few articles on MCS in the news published so far in 2016, listed in reverse chronological order.

Again, MCS is NOT a psychological disorder, it is a disorder of the limbic  (olfactory) system in the brain and other organ systems. MCS is being accepted by many first world countries as we collectively have more chemical exposure due to industrialization. Notice above, even the venerable Financial Times, UK has published an article about MCS.

In Spain and Latin America MCS is more accepted by the medical community as a legitimate physical medical disorder, and not as a psychological disorder.  Indeed, Spain is one of the most progressive governments in the world when it comes to helping people with Environmental Illnesses. In Spain people with MCS are protected by the law. See SQM (Sensiblidad Quimica Multiple) in the Spanish News.

 

Glutathione and MCS

For many whose glutathione may be out of whack due to medication, especially psychotropic medications, or environmental issues glutathione can be a big help in fighting the Chemical Sensitivity. Glutathione need not be inhaled to be helpful. Whey and NAC can also be of help. Whey is probably a good thing to add to any diet for health anyway. It used to be eaten much more; however, these days it seems to be a weightlifter “secret”.

Title: Inhaled glutathione for the prevention of air pollution-related health effects a brief review.

Author: Allen J1.

Abstract:

Exposure to air pollution is associated with significant adverse health effects, such as cardiovascular disease and asthma. Most current research trends focus on quantifying illnesses or deaths attributable to air pollutants, but limited research has examined potential methods of preventing these effects. The mainstay of conventional therapies lies in the treatment of exposure-related diseases, not prevention strategies. Few medical interventions seek to protect the lungs directly. Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) practitioners are widely recognized, and often criticized, for administering therapeutic substances based on biochemical plausibility or pre-clinical studies. One widely used CAM intervention that specifically targets the Slung is inhalation of the antioxidant glutathione. Inhaled glutathione is commonly used in the CAM community to treat a number of conditions, such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, bronchitis, sinusitis, and chemical sensitivity. Evidence suggests that inhaled glutathione rapidly increases pulmonary glutathione levels, providing a potential preventive intervention in the presence of environmental oxidants (eg, air pollutants). Enhancing pulmonary glutathione levels may reduce or eliminate systemic effects of air pollutants; however, no controlled studies have evaluated this potential. This article briefly reviews a major air pollutant (particulate matter) and the natural defense system against its toxicity and propose a pilot study to investigate the potential of inhaled glutathione to blunt its adverse effects.

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.
