Anti-depressants. Do you really need them? A better way to break out of depression is the natural way.
It was reported recently that 1 in 10 US adults take antidepressants. When I read this I was very sad. What made my mood worse was when I read that less than a third of the people taking antidepressants have actually been to a mental health professional in the past twelve months. The truth of the matter is that the majority of people taking antidepressants do not need them.
White women constitute the biggest group of people taking antidepressants. 400% more white women are taking antidepressants now as compared to in the early 90s. It isn’t that there are that many more people with depression. It’s simply that anti-depressants are now seen as the “Go to” solution for depression.
I’m not a doctor, but I do know what it is like to experience depression. . . don’t we all? We all suffer from feelings of depression from time to time. It seems it doesn’t take much to leave us feeling depressed. Not exercising, eating unhealthy diets, spending too long on the computer. . . these are all causes of depression. And there are simple and healthy solutions.
Let’s put away the anti-depressants and get back to the natural way.
