Cured from depression... after 17 years!

Hi

Thanks for the info on mercury, water and low blood sugar. I recently had a "bioresonance test" which showed a very high level of mercury in my system.

Last October I went for a consultation with a dental practice that specialises in mercury removal. Yes, it is very important to go to a practice that is specifically equipped for this because the fillings are apparently at their most dangerous at the point when they are drilled out & removed.

The dentist must have certain filtration devices, etc, specifically designed for this purpose. Many dental practices may not be correctly equipped -- it's recommended that you find a "holistic" dentist.

I'm absolutely DREADING having the fillings replaced, as well as the cost......however my naturopath feels that the toxic level of mercury in my body is strongly contributing to the deep, intense, chronic, non-stop depression/anxiety I've endured for several years & feels that it won't lift unless the mercury is removed.

No....I don't believe mercury to be the "cause" of my depression, nor does the dentist. The "cause" is, basically, a totally wrecked life (many issues). However there are endless clinical studies, articles, reports, etc, all over the internet that do link mercury amalgam fillings with serious depression/anxiety and related conditions.

If someone isn't sensitive to mercury, doesn't become toxic and manages to expel it from the body naturally, maybe there is no need to remove old fillings....who knows. Various studies do show that toxic mercury vapour is released non-stop for the entire life of every amalgam filling -- maybe most people aren't mercury-sensitive to the point where it becomes a problem. They are indeed lucky.

I am trying to wean myself off the SSRI antidepressant and the Diazepam -- so far I've slowly cut the SSRI dosage down by half and don't seem to feel any difference (?). I take a small dose of Diazepam to try & deal with the crippling panic attack that floods over me every morning (mornings are absolutely lethal) --- I'm scared to come off that drug entirely. My naturapath has sent me a homeopathic formula to (hopefully) help gradually wean me off the prescription med's. Ideally I'd like all that stuff out of my system -- forever.

Many thanks for everyone's very kind help, and the very best of luck to all.

It gives me hope reading how you seem to be cured. I just want to know where would I need to start to get the ball rolling? would I need to see my GP to be refered on to a naturopath or do it off my own back?
I'm currently taking Dosulepin, have been for the past 4 years but its doing nothing to help.

Hi

No.......... sad to day, I'm not cured. Not by any means. My depression is actually getting worse all the time. It's due to a number of very specific issues in my life .... and these issues cannot be cured (if only....... if only........).

I saw a hypnotherapist who referred me to a naturapath -- she has urged me to get rid of my mercury fillings ASAP as she feels these are contributing to the intensity of the depression, if not the cause.

I can't say where you might be able to find a naturapath -- I suppose you might try googling naturapath + your area and see what comes up. I wish I could be more helpful. I don't know if there's a Society of Naturapaths, etc. If there is, they might be able to guide you in the right direction. Good luck in your search.

I've been taking Mirtazapine for 2 years, before that Citalopram. Unfortunately they did nothing. I take a small dosage of Diazepam every morning ....... I find mornings beyond lethal. Crippling anxiety, terror, the shakes, etc. Really horrible.

Ideally I would like to come off all the med's and use only natural treatments. The naturapath agrees with this 100% ....... she is now giving me something designed to help me slowly wean off the med's.

My issues can't be solved by med's, doctors or therapists .... there is no "cure" for what's happened in my life that has resulted in my condition.

All the very best of luck in your efforts to achieve a good, lasting solution.

I'm sorry I should have read all of the post & not just the first page!
I've heard a lot about mercury fillings linked to depression & think it is a good idea to have them removed if possible, its something I'm definitely going to look into.
I hope someday you'll feel better soon, its awful feeling so unhappy x

Thanks so much ...... you're obviously a really understanding & sympathetic human being. I'm sometimes amazed at the total lack of understanding (and even tolerance) I've had from so-called friends......

In my particular case I think it's more than just mercury fillings, although they may be a contributing factor (there are countless internet articles about this). My naturapath is convinced of this & I've booked a dental visit for next week........... time to get out the Diazapam.

For a number of years I've been dealing with some very difficult "life issues" ...... they're the underlying cause of the depression & extreme anxiety, and I'm 100% convinced that if these issues could "miraculously" be resolved, the depression would lift.

Unfortunately in my case no amount of med's or therapists have helped. However for other people whose depression may perhaps be rooted in less specific issues, med's + therapy often do achieve good results.

Many thanks again.....and keep well.

Hi F1_2009,
In the early nineties I read several books about positive thinking (Dale Carnegie, Napoleon Hill, Norman Vincent Peale, Clement Stone) and NLP (Anthony Robbins). I practiced it too. The total lack of effect was one of the reasons why I started focusing on brain waves and body minerals.

An important book for me was Dealing with Depression Naturally, by Syd Baumel. It sheds light on mood-altering chemistry in your body.

what is the relationship between heavy metals toxin and depressing thoughts?

since we tie feelings to experience, why cant we untie past feelings to past experience and then tie new feelings to it? we do that with ordinary experience, like for instance taste in music or food. is it because depression feels stronger? and perhaps theres a feeling of hopelessness? and maybe because we dont know how to change the connections?
