    depression

    Just researching Tissue Salts for something else and came across this. Thought I'd share on this thread...

    Tissue Salts for Depression

    Biochemic tissue cell salts are made from the minerals that are found in the rocks and soil of the earth. These minerals should be present in our food and bodies for balanced health. Due to modern agricultural practices, many vital minerals are leached from the soil and this can cause a mineral deficiency in the human body.

    Taking tissue salts is a gentle, non-toxic way of finding relief for depression. Follow the dosage recommendations that come with each bottle of tissue salts.

    Kali. Phos., tissue salt no. 6, is one of the most important tissue salts for the over-emotional and will help to elevate the mood during the times a sufferer feels depressed, desperate or anxious.

    Nat. Mur., tissue salt no. 9, helps the clinically depressed and should be taken regularly to lessen feelings of despair, listlessness, lack of joy and gloom.

    Nat. Sulph., tissue salt no. 11, alleviates feelings of despondency, insomnia and irritability. It is a particularly good salt for those who suffer with manic depression.

    Taking a combination of Kali. Phos., Nat. Mur. and Nat. Sulph. is an excellent mood-lifter and natural tranquillizer.

    Mama Bear-
    I've been taking Paxil for about 2 1/2 months now, and feel good. No anxiety, which seemed to start for me about nine months ago. I'd been prescribed Wellbutrin a couple of years ago, then Celexa, but was drinking and didn't really give them a fair shake. But a therapist suggested Paxil when it seemed it wasn't so much depression as anxiety. I started just before heading to rehab in Nov and I have not felt that anxiety since. Of course, the drinking, especially at the level I was at at the end, was contributing to that in a big way.
    I haven't seen side effects as such, but do have trouble remembering names at times. Maybe that is part of the brain fog? Hard to distinguish between that and PAWS. Anyhow, beats the brain fog I was in while drinking!
    I know that Lavande suggested a natural product, Amoryn, and I bought it last summer. But again, with the drinking, I couldn't feel any effects, and stopped taking it. At some point I may be able to wean off of the Paxil and go for that. For now, I'll stick with Paxil!
    Thanks for this thread!

    Light

    After reading a post on another thread where a "happy light" was mentioned in an aside, I have just spent two hours researching light or photo therapy.
    Originally this was only used to treat SAD (seasonal affective disorder) but there are some studies on it being used for depression with good results.
    I am really frustrated though because there are differences in opinion as to the "type" of light to use and only one seems to be available in Australia. Of course it is the one that got the least good mentions with at least one very negative write up.
    I found one treatment facility that is using the therapy for Parkinsons patients as depression is a really big issue but of course although they detail the treatment protocol and results, they do not specify the lamp used. I sent an email asking what type and where I could get one, hopefully they will not reply that it is a whizz bang onsite computerised machine I could never afford?
    You are probably all thinking that I have really lost my marbles! How could anyone in Australia need this? Remember I am not getting out to get sunshine and this summer has been 9 days of overcast misery for every 1 of sunshine (or so it seems anyway), even the weather reporters are moaning about it.
    I'm not holding out for it to be a cure all, good nutrition, L glut, vitamins, omega 3 are all on the list too.
    Given that it was an SSRI that I had a bad reaction with I am planning on being cautious as the therapy works by stimulating seratonin production, so where the protocol indicates 30 minutes per day I thought I would try ten and see how it goes.
    Still awaiting a place in detox.

    Hi Free, I found your post intriguing. I've been using Celtic Salt for a couple of years instead of sea salt, in cooking and on food. I was on a low salt regimen my entire life due to hypertension, and in doing research on my thyroid, found that my sodium level was 25 (normal range 50-300). I was advised by the yahoo group for thyroid that I should take Celtic salt daily, so started using it on food and also took some in water initially to speed up the salt in my tissues. For the first time in years, I was able to sleep through the night because I didn't have to pee every five minutes. Meanwhile, my mainstream MD, sweet as he is, said my sodium level was no big deal. This self-doctoring we do is exhausting.

    The reason they advised Celtic salt was because it has all those minerals that are missing from our diets. My sodium is now 50.

    depression

    Hello everyone, and thanks for starting this thread Chilli. Brilliant discussion and sharing of info.

    I hear one effect of AD's taken when drinking regularly, is that the booze somehow cancels them out, so they don't work. This is probably common knowledge?

    Willow, i would love to somehow see some of your craft work/art. Anyway you could post some pics? Only if you're comfortable doing that of course. Also, your description of your existence when drinking, mirror's mine in many ways, so thanks for sharing. When i'm sober, i am completely different. I am powerful, positive, self esteem is high, and self respectful. Great to hear from you.

    Chilli, i'm getting a lot out of your sharing of dietary info, and the sugar effect too. So thankyou for that, and thanks to you, and everyone here for the thread.

    Best wishes all,

    G-bloke.

    Nothing to see

    Hi,

    ahhh I always get this far and forget who I am replying to sorry :l

    Sea salt now added to the list

    I have about six "projects" in various stages, none of them worth posting at present and completed work from prior times was all given away as gifts. Also because my craft now includes opals and they are so darn hard to photograph, I need to learn a lot about that side first.

    The description of me "when drinking" is only worse than the description when "depressed but at least not drinking" in small ways. When depressed but not drinking I still neglect myself and my room, have no motivation to do anything but I do have some "better days", maybe once a fortnight? Also when drinking I don't get the cruelly intense, long lived, downs that I get when I am depressed and not drinking. I guess that's the attraction to give in to AL, unmotivated and numb Vs unmotivated and in pain.
    Picking up a drink this time instead of persevering to look for maybe some more guns to help with the depression was the biggest blunder ever! No excuse can be made!

    I tracked down the only light therapy unit available in Australia, it is $349 free shipping (no wonder there is no price on their website) I can send to the UK and get one (different brand and one I like better) for $118 plus shipping but I just tried and Australia is not on the shipping list, so I have sent them an email and am hoping we can organise something.
    I realise that the Australian retailer probably gets hit with big import duty but I will not have to pay any under therapeutic goods for personal use. This inequity with health products needs addressing as it does hurt retailers here but I have to save money however I can.

    A place available in detox in two days. Pick myself up dust myself off and start all over again.

    Willow
