Thnx daboga. ...but many people don't want to hear it.
Surrealist - you say:
NO no no. Depresion is a natural thing, but it's not like we've allready destroyed the nature around us. We treat anything that someone has as a
diseas or a sickness, like ADD.
And now we want to take away depresion, some things, but, it is moving us foreward in a way in science. mm
IMO - sadness is natural, and grief. Anger and fear, yes. But depression? I don't think so.
When the epidemics started spreading in the 1940's and 50's, people knew they were sick. But doctors labelled the symptoms "depression," and
hypochondria - even though they knew they were dealing with weird new (physical) disease mutations - because the new diseases were incurable and
Then the drug companies came up with Valium and drugged the nation. Especially the women. Cuz women had time to observe, and a tendency to share
intimate information and medical details about their families' health.
The 'women's movement' supported the AMA and drug companies - agreed that women were nuts and neurotic - and blamed 'lifestyle' and a lack of
professional productivity. So they sent all the drugged women off to work and left the doctors in charge of families' health instead of concerned,
aware mothers, who had the time
to notice what was really going on.
In the early 60's, the US pulled the plug on funding to the 'global morbidity and mortality stats' compilation program. The funding wasn't
reinstated until the end of the 1980's, under extreme pressure from independent family doctors.
By that time, most people were thoroughly convinced that infectious disease was "conquered." And besides, decision-makers argued, it was too late to
get it all under control. Better to let people "evolve" and adapt, and count on "survival of the fittest."
...We have changed our world fundamentally - chemically, biologically, and genetically. And now we're dealing with the fallout. Part of that fallout
is new microbes and disease mutations, no
natural immunity, and secondary symptoms labelled "mental disease."
Did you know? ..."Clinical depression" is the leading cause of disability in the USA today - and the World Health Organization says it will be the
leading cause of disability in the world within the next few years.
...Two primary symptoms of "clinical depression" are migraines, and body pain for which there is no physical explanation.
Also of note:
1. A disease called fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) is epidemic in the USA - it is a "systemic angiopathy" that destroys the blood and lymph vessels,
usually very slowly, and can affect virtually any organ, gland, system and body part (stroke, heart attack, cancer, and kidney failure are the most
common fatal effects);
2. A 1980 biopsy study in China showed that 100% of migraine patients had FMD; and
3. As FMD progresses, it causes painful vasospasms and ischemia that can affect any part of the body - but because FMD bypasses the immune system,
there are no blood tests or other routine clinical tests that reveal its presence - and insurance does not cover the expensive tests until a life
threatening event occurs.
...IMO - it's ALL physical. Not mental. And definitely NOT "natural."
