How to lift your mood
without antidepressants
Theresa was 37 years old when I first met her. She came to the clinic with her mother complaining that, as long as she could remember, she had been suffering from symptoms of depression and fatigue.

Depression often comes with fatigue because of the insomnia and adrenal depletion caused by the depressive state.

When she was six years old, her stepfather molested her. She had always assumed that it was the psychological impact of this trauma that was responsible for her life of misery. She started seeing counselors when she was in her second year of high school.

According to her mother, she often did nothing but sleep for days. This is a classic symptom of severe depression. So her doctor started her on antidepressant medications. Theresa said, “The medications numbed me. I did not feel sad. I stopped crying. But I did not feel any joy or pleasure either.” This is the single most common complaint I hear from people who take these drugs.

For the next 23 years, Theresa took the medications. I calculated that, at this point, she had spent more than $12,000 on drugs and over $40,000 on therapy. She was able to work, but she was still living with her mother, was 20 pounds overweight, and had not been able to sustain any kind of romantic relationship. She was still suffering, still seeing a counselor, still spending $1.90 a day on the drug Paxil, and still didn’t have any hope for the future.

Can You Restore Your Hearing by Taking Nutrients?

Most doctors don't think nutrition has anything to do with hearing loss. But several new studies show just how important nutrition is to your ears - and how some people are actually reversing their hearing loss.

The first thing I did was to test her with Bio-Energy Testing. This is a unique form of metabolic testing that I developed to help my patients. You can learn more about it at www.secondopinionnewsletter.com or at www.bioenergytesting.com. Several other clinics around the world are using it as well.

And the numbers are growing as we speak. Her Bio-Energy Test revealed that she was deficient of the thyroid hormones T3 and T4. In other words, she had hypothyroidism. Her blood tests did not show this, but blood tests miss the diagnosis of hypothyroidism more often than not. So don’t rely solely on them. I also checked out her sex hormone levels. She definitely was deficient of the hormone progesterone. The rest of her tests were normal and there were no symptoms to indicate the others were low.

Based on the symptoms she did have, and the test results, I started her on the following program:

  • topical progesterone cream 4%, 1 cc per day
  • DHEA, 10 mg twice a day (morning and noon)
  • cortisol, 10 mg twice a day (morning and noon
  • desiccated thyroid hormones (a mixture of T3 and T4), ½ grain twice a day (morning and noon)
  • regular exercise and no carbohydrates
  • 5-HTP, 200 mg twice a day, between 3:00-4:00 p.m. and again at bedtime.
Next week, I’ll show you how this regimen worked for Theresa. And I’ll show you what we did next to make sure the depression stayed away. Don’t miss it.
