Looking for something to help yourself for depression? Those who suffer from this can have great difficulties getting through daily life. Not everyone wants to take pharmaceutical drugs. These medicines can help some people and make others even more ill.
Dr Andrew Saul, Ph D tells us how he thinks we can help ourselves. He suggests specific natural food and vitamins.
Now take note that these are his suggestions. Always get yourself checked out by a healthcare professional and have yourself monitored by them as you go along.
Remember also that if you decide to follow his advice yet don't follow through with it, you will see no improvement. Taking large doses of specific vitamins for only one day is not going to cure you of your ailments. You must follow a long term project. Give it a good try before you say it does not work.
Let me know if this works for you or if you have another natural remedy. It is only by sharing that mankind progresses.
Herbs are a great addition to our food. They have qualities discovered by our ancestors over hundreds of years. These people who went before us knew what plants were good for them and those they loved. They knew what plants could make them better when they were sick. They did not have big hospitals, or doctors to run to each time they didn't feel well. They had to look after themselves and they turned to Nature for help. The plants in Nature were free for the taking.

Yes, according to some medical specialists in the USA, there is a connection between sugar and cocaine. Just like cocaine, we need more and more sugar to give us the same pleasure we get from sweetened substances. When we eat sugar it lights up the same area in the brain that lights up when cocaine in ingested.
A pediatric endocrinologist on 60 minutes television show tells us here just what he thinks of sugar. He believes it causes heart disease - cardio vascular disease (CVD).
Another medical specialist tells how his research shows that sugar spikes insulin which in turn is taken up by tumours, that is, cancer in our body, and feeds on the insulin. His message? Cut sugar, cut insulin, stop the cancer growing.
These medical specialists are firm in their belief that there is a public health crisis and it is caused by the sugar and high fructose corn syrup added to our food and that we must limit our consumption of sugar for our own health's sake.
Watch these experts here and maybe you will be able to start limiting your sugar intake so that you can stay healthy or return to health.
Here is a short video by author Gary Taubes. He is talking about the subject of his book SUGAR, sharing with us what his scientific knowledge has found.
Gary's book is 'Good Calories, Bad Calories'. In it he shares with us all the research about sugar and diabetes, sugar and insulin, sugar and weight loss, sugar and obesity and much more.
If you are affected by any of the above, please listen to what he has to say.
Homeopathy can help with acute grief or shock.
Situations can occur suddenly throughout our life that bring on a stage of acute grief or shock. We are left feeling our emotions are in shreds.
This grief can be brought on by a loved one dying, a car accident, being diagnosed with a severe illness, losing our job, or a major catastrophe where we are affected as in fires, tornados or flooding.
In times like these we need some extra help emotionally. We are fortunate that there are natural remedies that can help.
The energy of certain flowers or trees has been found to be of great help.
Rescue Remedy, a mixture of these essences or remedies can help allay the shock. It comes in different forms today. Rescue Remedy comes in a little dropper bottle from which we take a few drops under our tongue or in a glass of water, sipping it as needed. It also comes in pastilles and a spray and can sometimes be found in pilules similar to homeopathy pilules. A pilule is a little pill.
Survival Remedy is a different form of liquid energy. It is made from a synergy of flowers and crystals and has a profound effect on settling the emotions.
Ignatia is a homeopathic remedy that is a quick fix when we are in the turmoil of acute grief. A few pilules or drops taken every few hours for a few days can settle us down, bringing us back to equilibrium so that we can deal with the situation.
Arnica is a remedy that deals with shock, both physical and mental. It can help settle the emotions. If there is physical trauma, it can bring back blood flow to the area, helping to relieve bruising. Arnica also comes in herbal liquid.
Nat mur is a homeopathic remedy for grief that has turned into long term, deep seated grief.
It is a good idea to keep your favourite remedy readily accessible whether it is in your bag, the car, the bathroom cupboard or by the bed. So long as you know where to access it, it will be there when you need it.

The Scientific Age
I found this most profound piece of writing today and would like to share it with you.
'I often wonder in this age of science that its scientific spirit so much neglects the scientific therapeutics of Samuel Hahnemann, particularly as Hahnemann has been so long dead. It cannot now make any difference to him! And faith! It makes no difference to me either.
This was not written in 2013 but around the 1880s or 1890s. And the sad fact is that 125 years later it is still just as true as then.
The excerpt from a manuscript was written Dr James Compton Burnett. He was born in 1840. He went to medical school in 1865 and was converted to Homeopathy in
The excerpt is from his book 'The Diseases of the Liver'. In this book he tells of the many patients he helped with illnesses of the liver. I feel sure that many more people have been helped by his knowledge which has been spread to other homeopaths through his writings.
Samuel Hahnemann MD is the founder of the science of Homeopathy. Classical
Homeopathy was founded on the principles of 'like cures like'. Homeopathy works
to promote optimal health on all levels - physically, mentally and emotionally. The practice of Homeopathy seeks to re-establish balance and harmony in a person's health.
Homeopathy has helped millions of people experience relief and cure of their illnesses in a rapid, gentle and permanent way. This science has been used for over 200 years.
All remedies used in homeopathy come from natural substances. This is truly an eco-friendly form of medicine. I also call homeopathy the 'Designer Medicine' as the remedies are 'designed' or chosen to fit your particular symptoms, not the symptoms of everybody else sitting in the waiting room of the doctor's clinic.
The remedy that will help you is carefully chosen to cover your symptoms which will be different to the next person's symptoms. This way the remedy is more likely to help solve your problems leading to a gentle, effective relief of the illness.

Just eat sugar!
Judith Hallfrisch PhD found after doing lots of studies that the risk of cardio vascular disease went up when people ate sugar. When they ate complex carbohydrates the risk was less.
Dr Atkins, in his treatment of patients with obesity and diabetes found over many years that an extremely low level of carbohydrates improved people's health remarkably, helping them to lose weight and reverse diabetes.
