Can Antidepressant Drugs Cure Depression?

I've heard some depressed people say that antidepressants have made their unbearable life bearable and have helped them greatly. But if you are suffering from Clinical Depression, before you race off to your Doctor and get some, please consider the following. Antidepressants often come with side effects such as:

* Drowsiness and fatigue
* Constipation, nausea and diarrhea
* Weight gain
* Sexual dysfunction

If you are taking or thinking about taking antidepressants for treating your depression, then you need to pay attention. There are many things about the big pharmaceutical companies that you do not know about, but should. You should be doing your homework and not relying on your doctor to tell you if a medication is good or safe. In fact, many doctors are not as qualified to prescribe medications as they would like you to believe. This can not only cost you an extra expense, but can also jeopardize your overall health and well-being.

As you probably know, antidepressants don't cure the problem, they only mask the effects. While this may be helpful to some in the short term, the problem remains, to be faced at some stage in the future. It's better, faster and more healthy to look at the cause of your depression sooner rather than later.

Bearing in mind antidepressant drugs are implicated in causing murderous and suicidal thoughts and may be the cause behind the recent mass murders. The drugs can also increase your risk of strokes and serious brain injuries.

There are therapies out there which can help and if you have a close friend (or a group) who is prepared to go the distance with you, depression can be worked through and climbed out of. Please don't give up! Life sometimes seems stagnant, but over time things do change.

It is also important to know that there are many natural remedies to replace antidepressants, and that many of these are being snuffed out by the big pharmaceutical companies for a reason.

Conquer That Stress : Smile Daily.

Please frown your face and turn the sides of your mouth down. Imagine it’s your birthday and your friends or spouse. Frown more! Hold It ! How do you feel ? Okay now, Smile. Let the corners of your lips slide heaven wards  ( upwards) . Imagine the birthday card has just arrived. The surprise party is for you. Bigger smile! Hold it ! How do you feel? Better ! Here is why: A merry heart doeth good like a medicine.

Researchers have shown that when a person smiles, there is a reduction in cortisol, a chemical that provokes stress in the body and an increase in mind-elevating endorphins ( hormones) on the social level, an honest smile cancels hostility and draws people near you. It takes more muscles to frown than smile in the human body. Laughter has a protective effect  on the immune system by increasing anti-body producing cell and
activating virus fighting cells.

The act of smiling engages at  least three major muscle groups, increasing blood to the face and thus helping to create a glossy glow. Yet despite all these benefits, a smile is free. I heard recently that the great philosopher, Akin vats  used to make himself to laugh every morning for 10 minutes as  soon as he got up. I tried my own version for about 5 minutes of that exercise.

Laughter is the  biological reaction of  humans to moment or occasions of humour. Every laugh you make cuts short the miles and hours and days of drudgery/DEPRESSION. No matter what you are going through rejoice or pretend to rejoice if need be , but don’t die through tears, self-pity, depression, worry or anxiety. A man is not finished if he can still laugh. 

Edgar Watson Howe wrote: If you don’t learn to laugh at trouble, you won’t have anything to laugh at when you are old. “Always laugh when you can. It is cheap medicine” No wonder  Micheal Pritchad wrote: He who laugh last, Laugh longest.

Indeed a day without laughter is a day wasted, nothing shows a man characters more than what he laughs at. Refuse to pity yourself, forgive yourself, reject depression because your best days are still ahead.
