While many would have you believe that depression is a brain chemical imbalance and that being on an antidepressant drug would do the trick, “[r]esearch suggests that depression doesn’t spring from simply having too much or too little of certain brain chemicals,” according to an article published in the Harvard Health Publications called What Causes Depression?
At first glance, it makes logical sense that a mental illness would have something to do with the brain so one should look there for the cause.
Yet, if that was truly the case, it makes you wonder why millions of people on any type of psychotropic or antidepressant drugs are still depressed and why some still do not respond well and favorably to traditional treatment. Some do, but maybe that’s just the placebo effect.
While many are helped, these drugs aren’t free of their side-effects.
Massive data (one from drugwatch.com and one from mercola.com) show that taking antidepressants may actually increase the risk of suicide tendencies as well as contribute to a host of symptoms that weren’t initially present in the original diagnosis.
If that is not enough to convince you of the inherent risks in these drugs, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) even “proposed that makers of all antidepressant medications update the existing black box warning on their products’ labeling to include warnings about increased risks of suicidal thinking and behavior.” (Click here to read it.)
“A black box warning is the sternest warning by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that a medication can carry and still remain on the market in the United States,” writes Michael Biahri, M.D. for About.com Health.
While we’re not here to debate whether antidepressants are good or bad for you or whether you should be on them or not if you’ve been diagnosed with depression, we’re here to present you with an alternative look into depression, from the point of view of energy medicine, and how Quantum Techniques (QT) approaches and treats severe depression.
As psychiatrist and Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at UCLA, Judith Orloff, M.D. writes in her book Emotional Freedom: Liberate Yourself From Negative Emotions and Transform Your Life, “Even if depression has bedeviled you, now’s your chance to deal with it differently. Emotional freedom offers a path to hope, compassion, and relief of suffering.”
“Depression’s lesson is always hope, the belief in your capacity to rise above darkness, inner or outer, even when it pervades—to not give up. We must fight to find hope, especially when it feels beyond us,” Dr. Orloff continues.
In addition, in Feeling Generally Dissatisfied and “Not Happy”? How to Nip Subclinical Depression in the Bud, Dr. Joseph Mercola wrote: “I believe it’s helpful to view depression—whatever “level” of it you may be experiencing—as a sign that your body and life are out of balance, rather than as a disease. It’s a message, telling you you’ve veered too far off course, and you need to regain your balance.”
At QT, practitioners help you regain your balance by removing stressors that cause a disturbance in your body and energy fields.
So if you’re reading this and you’re suffering from one of the many faces of depression, now’s your opportunity to deal with it another way.
Consider QT as the physical and emotional freedom paths to get you there.
What if you’ve been approaching depression the wrong way?
What if, after all, it’s not all in your head?
What if the symptoms of ‘depression’ are something else?
According to Dr. Stephen Daniel, co-founder of QT, in Healing Depression with Quantum Techniques teleclinic, “for 95% of the cases, depression is really the side-effect of something else that needs to be healed.”
Wouldn’t you want to know what truly needs to be healed so you could be free?
You’ll find out soon enough what some of those factors are.
In the two brief videos below, Beth Daniel, co-founder of QT, psychologist, and QT practitioner explains the real causes of severe depression or depression-like symptoms and how it can be easily healed with QT.
Beth talks about:
- The role of trauma in depression
- What significant life event occurring in your life today might trigger the onset of depression
- What deeply held belief before the age of 5 needs to be eradicated to heal depression
- What unhealed issues you need to resolve in order to live in the present day
- What beliefs and generational vows might be blocking your healing
- What the message in the depressive symptom means
- What major lie you’ve bought into that is contributing to the depressive symptoms
- The true cause that is blocking and destabilizing the neurotransmitters in the gut
- The three major physical components contributing to depression. Hint: it’s not all in your head
Since QT gets to the root cause of treating depression, once what needs to be un-layered and cleared for each person is addressed, depression can be healed instantly.
I hope you enjoy watching the videos as much as I’ve enjoyed watching them myself.
