Do Antidepressants Worsen the Long-term Course of Depression? Giovanni Fava Pushes the Debate Forward

Do Antidepressants Worsen the Long-term Course of Depression? Giovanni Fava Pushes the Debate Forward | Health and Wealth News To Use | Scoop.it
The research on antidepressants and poor long-term outcomes.
Mellisa McJunkin's insight:

This is a must read. Here is an excerpt. Please be sure to click the link below to be taken to the article that was published by Psychology Today.

 

"Here is a sampling of what he found in the research literature:

• After six months of antidepressant treatment, the drugs "generally fail to protect" against a return of depressive symptoms. (In other words, maintenance treatment is ineffective, compared to placebo.)

• Two-thirds of patients maintained on antidepressants suffer from "residual symptoms," with "anxiety, insomnia, fatigue, cognitive impairment, and irritability the most commonly reported."

• As patients are switched from one antidepressant to another or to a polypharmacy regimen, their illness may be propelled "into a refractory phase, characterized by low remission, high relapse and high intolerance."

• Antidepressants increase the risk of a "switch" into mania, and thus into bipolar illness. Antidepressants also increase the risk that bipolar patients will become rapid cyclers, and that bipolar patients will develop a syndrome dubbed "Chronic Irritable Dysphoria."

 

The good news is......there is a better way to treat depression. And that is to get to one or more of the root causes. One things that stops depression in it's tracks and promotes healing is nutrition. Specifically bioavailable micronutrients. Go to http://www.qsciences.digi-info-broker.com for more information on that.

 

Micronutrients have been used for decades by Functional Medicine doctors. It's time the psych industry wake up and smell stench of anti-depressants

 

Enjoy the day.

Inflammation -The Key to Cancer Cell Overgrowth

Inflammation -The Key to Cancer Cell Overgrowth | Health and Wealth News To Use | Scoop.it
There are many different opinions on what causes cancer, but one of which that is not talked about very often is inflammation. How can inflammation cause the growth of cancer? To answer that, we must first understand what inflammation is.
Mellisa McJunkin's insight:

Nearly forgot about this article I wrote almost 4 years ago while researching c ancer and inflammation.

 

We really do need to take inflammation seriously. It might not lead to full blown cancer in you or someone you know and love, but it certainly can wreak havoc with many other conditions that will affect the heart and other vital organ and the mind, just to name a few.

 

Enoy the day.

Mellisa McJunkin's insight:

Dr. Greenblatt’s provocative idea — that psychiatric woes can be solved by targeting the digestive system — is increasingly reinforced by cutting-edge science.

 

For decades, researchers have known of the connection between the brain and the gut. Anxiety often causes nausea and diarrhea, and depression can change appetite. The connection may have been established, but scientists thought communication was one way: it traveled from the brain to the gut, and not the other way around. No they know better.

Healing Heart Disease Naturally - Wellness Achiever | Health and Wealth News To Use | Scoop.it
Cholesterol is not the enemy of your heart but the hero of your healing. It serves as part of your body’s repair system not the cause of Heart Disease.
Mellisa McJunkin's insight:

With 2 family members dealing with serious heart disease issues the past few weeks, this topic is at the top of the list for me.

 

What's great to know is that much of the pain and suffering can be contended with just by making some adjustments in lifestyle.

 

Yes, medications may be the best available option for the short term, but as many experts will tell you, drugs were never invented or intended to be a long term solution for any problem.

 

And medications are NOT the ONLY answers. Diet, exercise, supplements that supply heart healthy nutrients, stress reductions, rest all play an important role in a long, healthy life.

 

Enjoy the day!

Texas Man Can Get Drunk Without Alcohol, Due To Auto-Brewery Syndrome: Can You Brew Beer In Your Own Stomach?

Texas Man Can Get Drunk Without Alcohol, Due To Auto-Brewery Syndrome: Can You Brew Beer In Your Own Stomach? | Health and Wealth News To Use | Scoop.it
A 61-year-old Texas man who can get drunk without even touching alcohol has sparked the interest of gastroenterologists.
Mellisa McJunkin's insight:

Sadly, "getting drunk" is just one of MANY side effects of a yeast overgrowth. 

 

Although the yeast found in his gut is a more rare type, the yeast found in most other people (OVER 80% of us) is the more common type called Candida Albacans.

 

Symptoms can range from headaches, the blurred vision, digestive issues, arthritic symptoms, depression, ADD/ADHD and more. 

 

The bottom line is, if you have mystery symptoms the Dr's can just never seem to figure out, you probably too have a yeast overgrowth and would benefit from some natural antifungals and a low yeast/carb diet as well.

 

Enjoy the day!

Treat the Whole Patient: Bring in the Psychiatrist | Psychiatric Times

Treat the Whole Patient: Bring in the Psychiatrist | Psychiatric Times | Health and Wealth News To Use | Scoop.it
Behavioral problems “masquerade” as physical symptoms. The time has come to treat the whole patient and to make psychiatry part and parcel of primary care.
Mellisa McJunkin's insight:

Well, here's an interesting statistic: It is estimated that up to half of the population have symptoms consistent with the one of the recognized psychiatric diagnoses described in the DSM-5. Of those patients in whom psychiatric illness has been diagnosed, fewer than have have their symptoms treated by a physician.

 

Ok..... this has gotta change. Prior to 1980, psych patients were always treated medically first. That is... the Dr's knew that mental/brain illness were medically induced.

 

It's not gonna change until we stand up to the powers that be and demand patients be medically tested and treated.

 

The most common reasons for mental illness are:

Nutrient deficiencies

Inflammation of the brain

Infections (including parasites)

Hormonal imbalances

 

Functional Medicine doctors know how to treat the "WHOLE" patient. Go find yourself one now.

Check the list in this article. If you have ANY one of these symptoms, you need to try to pinpoint the source of your malice. Know and understand there is a high probability that you have been infected with a parasite.

 

It sounds ugly, but the truth of the matter is, it is highly curable with safe and effective anti microbrials.
