Quoted TextDr. D on wheat and depression:
Wheat is known to inhibit dopamine beta hydroxylase (DBH), an enzyme that converts adrenaline-like precursors to dopamine.
DBH is genetically compromised in type O's (found on same chromosome as ABO, and extensively linked to ABO) who often wind up having too much adrenaline and too little dopamine when they consume wheat.
Less direct link in the other types.
BTW: what increases DBH? High protein diet and exercise!
Quoted from ISA-MANUELAhave a look onto your *self* and work on it.
From one dependancy to another doesn't solve any kind of problems, because all of those *friendly*drugs are only meant to get ya into dependancy and no help in reality
thatswhy I am telling my clients: become your own teacher, your own master of your life and begin to use your brain instead getting your head to your hairdresser ;).....:D once a month ::) ;)
thatswhy I love this forum so much, here you might get the answers frank and freely outspoken and very less of bla's and thatswhy I love the approach of Peter so much, he and the orthomoleculars and some of the phyto's and homeopaths are the only one in a correct and acceptable and valide form to solve the problems and not
turning around the hot potty ;) Peter is one of the rare gems who attacks it by its corns and nothing else...he calls you for a positive approach to get out of those situations, and not to stay in......that's what we have to do and to follow and to teach .....................................!!!.................................................................................
even the translation in the bible is wrongly interpreted: I am the one who I am....
means in reality I am the one.. I'll become............(ich bin der ich werde....) :)
Quoted from ISA-MANUELAhave a look also in Riso's then you understand the causa and then you might be able to go against in best intentions, but what's about peoples passed over their 50ties ??)....can't change them, if they don't want by themselves...can't do anything for em, they are only reduced to get the right of being *consumers*...that's the most crucial of all!
Quoted from EdnaTherefore, I think everyone is right in this thread: Right now, medication is the way to go, in tandem of course with an optimal BTD program and taking good care of yourself in terms of sleep, exercise, not smoking, etc. And, whatever you do, don't drink alcohol, it will throw off your treatment.
Edited to add: and, whatever you do, as Dr. D. said, don't stop your medication unless you work with your doctor on it.
Quoted from EquiProBipolar people are famous for rebelling against meds and health protocols that can help them.
Quoted from KAMO+until this country has as much compassion for those people who have mental health issues as they are to men (no offense) who want viagra, we won't see much improvement in our lives.
Quoted from CockyJust a nice email I received from a dear friend of mine just now!!!
I want to share this funny, but soo true email with all of you..
Tech Support: Yes, .. how can I help you?
Customer: Well, after much consideration, I've decided to install Love.
Can you guide me through the process?
Tech Support: Yes. I can help you. Are you ready to proceed?
Customer: Well, I'm not very technical, but I think I'm ready. What do I do first?
Tech Support: The first step is to open your Heart. Have you located your Heart?
Customer: Yes, but there are several other programs running now. Is it okay to
install Love while they are running?
Tech Support: What programs are running ?
Customer: Let's see, I have Past Hurt, Low Self-Esteem, Grudge and Resentment running right now.
Tech Support: No problem, Love will gradually erase Past Hurt from your current operating system. It may remain in your permanent memory but it will no longer disrupt other programs. Love will eventually override Low Self-Esteem with a module of its own called High Self-Esteem. However, you have to completely turn off Grudge and Resentment. Those programs prevent Love from being properly installed.
Can you turn those off ?
Customer: I don't know how to turn them off. Can you tell me how?
Tech Support: With pleasure. Go to your start menu and invoke Forgiveness.
Do this as many times as necessary until Grudge and Resentment have been completely erased.
Customer: Okay, done! Love has started installing itself. Is that normal?
Tech Support: Yes, but remember that you have only the base program. You
need to begin connecting to other Hearts in order to get the upgrades.
Customer: Oops! I have an error message already. It says, "Error - Program
not run on external components." What should I do?
Tech Support: Don't worry. It means that the Love program is set up to run
on Internal Hearts, but has not yet been run on your Heart. In non-technical
terms, it simply means you have to Love yourself before you can Love others.
Customer: So, what should I do?
Tech Support: Pull down Self-Acceptance; then click on the following files:
Forgive-Self; Realize Your Worth; and Acknowledge your Limitations.
Customer: Okay, done.
Tech Support: Now, copy them to the "My Heart" directory. The system will
overwrite any conflicting files and begin patching faulty programming. >Also,
you need to delete Verbose Self-Criticism from all directories and empty your Recycle Bin to make sure it is completely gone and never comes back.
Customer: Got it. Hey! My heart is filling up with new files. Smile is playing
on my monitor and Peace and Contentment are copying themselves all over
My Heart. Is this normal?
Tech Support: Sometimes. For others it takes awhile, but eventually
everything gets it at the proper time. So Love is installed and running. One
more thing before we hang up. Love is Freeware. Be sure to give it and its
various modules to everyone you meet. They will in turn share it with others
and return some cool modules back to you.
Customer: Thank you, God.
Quoted from ISA-MANUELA@ Sandra_Aruba and yes, very often depressions are related with or better said, missdiagnosed with
thyroideproblems; a hypo or hyper might be seen as be-polar or even uni-polar.....::) and I think at first get your T3& T4 tested...........and other hormons too ;) ;D
Quoted from EquiProAgain, bipolar disorder is NOT depression.
