Published statistics are so remarkably variable that one wonders how to trust any! Some published stats range from 10% to at least 37%. Unequivocally, those with any significant problem have very high rates of depression, with stroke, cancer, Parkinsonism, HIV and chronic pain among the highest. My own impression is that only 20% of individuals are TRULY happy-with about 40% depressed and 40% just below clinical depression!

“Causes” of depression:

  • Poor self-esteem
  • Low levels of oxytocin
  • Low levels of magnesium
  • Low levels of taurine
  • Low levels of B vitamins
  • Low levels of lithium
  • Low levels of tryptophan
  • Significant illnesses of any kind

Clinical associations with depression:

  • Low serum norepinephrine
  • Elevated High Sensitivity CRP
  • Low levels of serotonin, norepinephrine, dopamine, melatonin, cholinesterase, beta endorphin
  • Family history of any emotional disorder
  • Childhood abuse
  • Smoking parents
  • Alcoholic parents

Other abnormalities in depression:

  • Abnormal EEG-focus of hyperactivity, usually in right frontal lobe but may be any area
  • Failure to follow photostimulation

Predispositions to depression:

  • Unwanted pregnancy
  • Pregnancy out of wedlock
  • Anesthesia at delivery
  • Divorce or other major trauma in first 7 years of life
  • Inadequate physical activity
  • Poverty

Personally, I consider anti-depressant drugs not only inadequate but more dangerous than not taking them.

My recommendations in order of essentials:

  • Eat only real food. Avoid fast food restaurants, processed foods, MSG, Aspartame, bread, alcohol, sugar, tobacco, more than one or two cups of coffee, all pop
  • Use Air Bliss once or twice daily. It is by far the easiest and simplest approach
  • Add my Essentials one or two daily; vitamin D 3, 50,000 units once week; Magnesium Lotion and either L-taurine, 3000 mg daily or meat broth-cook one pound of any flesh food in a quart of water, seasoned with onion, salt, etc and drink one cup daily
  • Add Lithium orotate, 15 to 20 mg daily
  • Push yourself to increase exercise! Start with simple bouncing in place 2 minutes and adding one minute each day
  • Get outside an hour a day if possible
  • Listen to great music an hour a day (not rock)
  • Get good total body massage at least once a week
  • If not better in a week add Shealy RelaxMate one hour at bedtime
  • If this does not make a huge difference within 2 or 3 weeks, try a Fisher-Wallace Cranial Electrical stimulator, one hour before noon every day
  • If this does not work within 3 weeks, see a good Past Life Therapist
