If you have been diagnosed as depressed, or feel that you might be suffering from one of the many clinical forms of depression such as manic depression or bi-polar disorder then we are on the same page in life.
I have been there, done that and now I am glad it is all over!
Miracle of miracles - I am no longer depressed and I do NOT owe a debt of gratitude towards medical science for my natural recovery.
Instead, I trusted my body, and had faith that it would respond well, to the remedies prescribed by Mother Nature.
If you have been prescribed antidepressants, anti-anxiety medications or monoxidase inhibitors to handle your state of mind and are absolutely sick of the expense and side effects that they cause, then you have landed on exactly the right web page.
You need to hear this story - it is only too typical, and it is what I got for trusting the medical establishment in the first place.
I wrote this book about Natural Depression Cures because I was diagnosed with depression. This was not a mild case of depression. It was severe CLINICAL depression - the type that makes it near impossible to get out of bed in the morning.
MY DEPRESSION LASTED TEN YEARS
If only I had known about the Natural Cures for Depression, I may have only had to suffer for two or three months with my particular form of depression, which was triggered by grief.
Sadly, after I was diagnosed, it took me one whole wasted decade to become completely cured of it. This is because the medications that doctors kept prescribing made me sicker and sicker.
You see, the initial depression that I was dealing with was caused by a specific trauma. Actually there were multiple traumas. Get ready to hear my tale of woe!
At the age of 38, my husband left me for my best friend. Unfortunately, he also happened to be my business partner - we ran a bed and breakfast together.
When he left, my world completely crumbled. Financially, I could no longer keep the business going by myself and I went bankrupt.
That was not the full extent of my woes. My mother died, and I had to have a lump removed from my breast as well. All of this horrible stuff happened to me in less than a three month period.
I became overwhelmed. I could not sleep. I was numb inside.
Every day, I felt like I was walking slowly through water in a pool whose sides were painted black. I cried a lot, and when I wasnt crying I was so angry that I would be mean to other people.
I was excruciatingly lonely, but I did not want to go out as I felt self-conscious and fat. Having the lump removed from my breast severely affected my self-esteem. The loss of my business and my husband at the same time also destroyed my sense of identity. I lost my bearings completely.
I just did not know who I was.
My insomnia was unbearable. In fact, it was the insomnia that drove me to seek out help from my family physician.
The first thing my doctor did was prescribe me lorazapam, which is a heavy anti-anxiety drug that is four times as strong as valium and meant to help individuals who have anxiety attacks and generalized anxiety. The stuff was also supposed to help you sleep.
Oh, the lorezapam helped me sleep alright - day and night I lived in a kind of reverie where reality did not matter. Before I knew it, I did not care about anything that happened.
Bills piled up. They went unpaid. I went through an entire bankruptcy with a big silly grin on my face thanks to the powerful anti-anxiety drug I was taking. In fact I had no real idea of the impact that the bankruptcy would have on me later, when I was sorry I was so stoned and silly that I could not make better decisions regarding my finances.
I also had no idea I was becoming addicted to the stuff. One day I looked in the mirror and I saw a woman I did not recognize anymore - a woman that was too stupefied by drugs to know what was going on. It was like the lorezapam had taken the sparkle out of my eye.
Foolishly, I decided to quit the lorezapam right then and there!
Going cold turkey on an anti-depressant drug is a very bad idea. After not taking a dose for thirty hours, I ended up raving and ranting in the hospital emergency room as I had completely lost my bearings, was suffering from unbearable leg cramps, and was irritable beyond belief.
The emergency room personnel declared me to be addicted to lorazapam, and I was given a prescription for a drug called novo-trazadone which was more of an anti-convulsant to keep me calm while I went through withdrawal.
However, the novo-trazadone was another drug that made me feel like a Zombie from the Night of the Living Dead? Although it was not addictive, taking this drug was just as bad as taking the lorezapam. All of my senses were dulled to the point that I did not get much done during the day.
My anxiety was relieved and I was sleeping at night, but I was still very sad and very blue all of the time... I was a quivering mass of teary Jell-O.
In fact, I got so sad that I felt like ending it all - so went back to the doctor, who prescribed me an antidepressant called Effexor to take in conjunction with the Novo-Trazadone. The end result was crying jags and mood swings that my doctor assured me were temporary. I also felt very disassociated - like I was drunk on a couple of glasses of wine all the time.
My good old doctor also assured me that the weight gain was temporary - but this too was a big lie. Each month that I was on Effexor I gained four to six pounds.
To be fair to the Effexor, it was working quite well to lift my mood and help me stop obsessing about my losses and what my ex was doing that day with my old best friend.
HOWEVER - I had gained almost forty pounds!
After complaining to my doctor about the weight gain, she then put me on a merry go round of different antidepressents including Paxil, Wellbutrin and Celexa.
In the end, it seemed that Celexa did the trick when it came to being the anti-depressant that would cause me the least weight gain - but then the FDA took it off the market for being dangerous.
I will never ever know what the ultimate effect of taking that drug for a long time has done for me.
To try and prevent the weight gain, my doctor then put me on rounds and rounds of a tri-cyclic anti-depressant called Elavil. The end result of this debacle was a mouth that became so dry and acidic that I began to suffer from tooth decay.
Sure, I felt more cheerful - but before I knew it I had huge dental bills to pay.
Although I felt calm, numb and even a little cheery, I knew that I had to get myself off the merry go round and find some way to cure my depression on my own.
However, each time I tried to go off these pills I felt worse and worse. I wanted nothing more than to feel like my old self again, but it just did not seem possible!
However, I knew too that I did not want to end up being a fat, medicated toothless old hag, and that there was more to life than walking around in a drugged out trance.
In fact, I was so drugged out that the medication I was taking, it masked a serious toothache. The end result was that I actually lost a whole front tooth and it cost a couple of grand to make me look decent again.
Losing that tooth was my rock bottom. That is when I decided that I was going to look more into Natural Cures for Depression. I was going to heal myself!
My desire to end my own torment is how this book came about. And in case you are wondering -
YES! I did cure my depression using natural methods only. And you can do the same following the wise advice in

Do you need a reason to get out of bed again?
