It currently affects about 350 million people worldwide – and the problem is getting worse. Around one million people every year commit suicide because they are suffering from depression, and year on year that figure rises at an alarming rate. By the year 2020, depression will have become second only to heart disease as a cause of premature death.
In the United States and Northern Europe, around 10% of people over the age of 12 are currently taking antidepressants to ease their depressive symptoms. Just think about that for a second – If this is the case, if so many people are taking drugs for depression and these drugs are so easily available, then why is the problem getting worse?
Well, it’s quite simple. It is because antidepressant medications for depression are notoriously expensive, ineffective and associated with a high risk of sometimes horrifying side effects – including increasing suicidal thoughts. Unfortunately, people with this condition are often desperate for a cure, and are willing to pay any price tag, even when they are told about the problems and limitations of the medication.
Every year, the pharmaceutical industry keeps rolling out new, more expensive and still ineffective drugs. And every year, the profits for the industry keep increasing…
In fact, according to NIMH.com, in 2011 the antidepressant market was estimated to be worth $10 billion in America alone. Every year since it has got bigger and bigger, and shows no signs of slowing down. Meanwhile, the number of people suffering with depression grow at an even more rapid rate. Why is that? Pharmaceutical companies will tell you, “more antidepressants are being sold because more people have depression” – but that is just casting a veil over the truth.
The truth is this; The numbers of people with depression should be coming down if more people are taking drugs to help them, the reason the problem is getting worse is the drugs are not working!
Knowing this, if I told you that there was a way to cure depression naturally, without using any useless medication which makes pharmaceutical companies fistfuls of money, and without any weekly sessions with a therapist which will cost a small fortune…would you be surprised that no doctor or therapist is telling you about it?. Of course not! In fact, each patient that a doctor treats for depression is worth around $300 to the medical and pharmaceutical profession each year – it is no wonder they hand out antidepressants like skittles!
Well, guess what, there is such a cure! And it only involves the use of CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) techniques which can be done at home, and some dietary and lifestyle changes.
Now, you may expect such great findings to make big news right? Not so. You see, the pharmaceutical and medical industry is driven by profits, not benefits to patients. That’s why they keep designing drugs that are expensive, of limited effectiveness, and that need to be taken continuously for years. That’s the perfect combination for ensuring ever-increasing profits.
An example of such shameless profiteering on a large scale is the wide prescription of statins for anyone with even borderline high cholesterol. Statins actually have very limited effectiveness, are associated with a number of side-effects, and…guess what…once a person starts taking them, they will need to keep taking them for their whole lives! Not so surprising is it? If you think about it, when was the last time a pharmaceutical company cured anything?.
It is the same with the drugs they prescribe for depression – no medical professional or anyone involved in the industry will want you to discover that you can cure yourself of depression for just a few dollars, when they can get you to pay thousands upon thousands in your lifetime for their “latest wonder-drug”, or charge you a small fortune just to sit in a leather chair and listen to you talk for one hour a week, without ever offering any solutions or guarantees.
