Study nature, not books. -Walton Forest Dutton, MD, in his 1916 book whose subject is origin (therefore what all healing methods involve and count on), simple and powerful.

The guy's getting bashed in the comments - SMH

He's saying/suggesting that we should all TRY NATURAL methods FIRST instead of running to the first prescription chemical out there. By eliminating all the junk/chemicals, and GMO's we ingest, and eating healthy "organic" foods, the imbalances MAY be corrected, and harmful/permanent side effects averted. After all, I remember a time when ADD was called "daydreaming" and people grew into "normal" healthy lives without having been mis/over-diagnosed as a child. He's not lying when he says anti-depressants don't work. One of the side effects to these is suicide, reason being, the meds eliminate inhibition. There are many people who have "talked through" their emotional problems, be it child sexual abuse/neglect or what have you, WITHOUT the need for chemicals with harmful side effects. The problem is that everyone is always looking for the easy way/magic pill solution.

Some of depression is chemical.

Take a good quality health food store multi vitamin.
Take additional niacin (nicotinic acid -- the kind that gives you a flush).
Take iodine supplements like Iodoral and take selenium, magnesium, and tyrosine with it.
Don't eat sugar of any kind - certainly not granulated sugar, corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, fructose, honey, maple syrup, and the like. If you must have sweetener, use stevia drops. Some of what is sold as stevia has some other dangerous sweetener added, so be careful.
Avoid grains, even whole grains.
Eat unprocessed meats and if you fry use lard (best to broil). Eat beef rare.
Eat plenty of vegetables, lightly cooked.
Eat a small amount of fruit.

High fat, low carb, high protein, high fiber.

And for heaven sakes, don't fall for the low fat diet insanity. Your brain and nervous system need a huge amount of fat to function property. Fats from seeds like corn, sesame, rapeseed, etc. are crap. Vegetable fats should come from coconut or olive oil only, and most of your fats should come from animals.

Doesn't need to be excessive. Just enough to get you sweating and breathing heavily for maybe 20 minutes a few times a week.

I know, it all sounds unconventional, but conventional is what gives you chemical imbalance depression.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

IMO the best way to

IMO the best way to completely get out of depression is to stop dwelling on and looking at things that make one depressed. In stead, force yourself to look at ALL of the things happening around you that you can be grateful for. Each breath is right there for you to take. Your feet did not fall through the floor when you got out of bed, etc.,etc. Good stuff happening all around, and you need to dwell on and search for that.
It is a way to cut depression off of you totally, but takes a bit of practice and effort.
