HOW TO DEAL WITH DEPRESSION WITHOUT USING PHARMACEUTICAL PRESCRIPTIONS The normal reaction to any unfortunate event is sadness. However, this feeling resolves with time as one gets new ways of looking at things. Depression is an involutional melancholia: a sense of inner emptiness that has no external cause. Simply speaking it comes from nowhere. It is important to distinguish between sadness and depression. In that sadness does not need treatment but depression needs to treated. Some doctors believe completely on pharmecutical drugs as the only solution in the problems that their patient may be experiencing and when one drug is not working they often go ahead and request for more drugs. They may increase the dose of the first antidepressant, add in another and then consider prescribing a mood-stabiliser as well. Most doctor’s worst fears is the patient commiting suicide and him being blamed for not helping them out with the right prescription. However, this may be based on what many other doctors generally do. Consequently there is a solid inertia: the status quo continues and is unchallenged, regardless of the mounting evidence of serious risks associated with these drugs. The patients mainly find it very hard to face real life challenges such as inadequate housing, unemployment, money worries as well as family problems because of the clouded mind caused by depreesion. The doctor’s suggestion is often that an antidepressant will ‘take the edge off’ or ‘put the mind in a splint’ and thereby enable the patient to be able to function more effectively and even resolve some of the issues. Research indicates the opposite that this drug does not function effectively. What happens is that the symptoms persist and the patient relies on the drugs to function.
