Self Help for Anxiety and Depression: What It is and Why We Experience It

Why Do We Experience Depression?

There are three major neurotransmitters in the brain:

  • serotonin
  • dopamine
  • norepinephrine

All three must be in the correct balance for a positive, stable self-image and optimistic mood. However, when these neurotransmitters are in an unbalanced state with one another, mood changes are inevitable. In general, when Serotonin levels drop, depression can quickly settle in, and when Serotonin levels can be made to rise, a happy contented mood generally results.

Researchers have found that hypothalamic disturbances are also found in depression, interfering with neuroendocrine activity. Hypothalamic disruptions can cause excessive amounts of Cortisol to be released from the Adrenal Cortex at inappropriate times, which can trigger or exacerbate depression. Interestingly, about one-half of all depressed patients secrete excessive amounts of Cortisol, primarily during the afternoon and evening, as opposed to the Cortisol activity of non-depressed people, which peaks about 8:00 AM.

Holistic Depression Therapy – How Does Deprex Work?

If you are seeking self help for anxiety and depression, you might want to learn about a holistic product called Deprex. This can make coping with depression much easier. Using a natural product along with other self-help forms of therapy can greatly improve many depression related symptoms.

Deprex provides the necessary dietary precursors which complement the body’s ability to effectively moderate and balance the necessary neurotransmitters within the brain, providing an all-natural calming and soothing effect without side effects. Pure and safe 5-Hydroxy-L-Tryptophan
(5-HTP) is included in this formula, being the direct precursor to Serotonin (5-Hydroxy-Tryptamine or 5-HP).

Common antidepressant drugs work artificially to selectively enhance or mimic Serotonin activity within the brain, but unfortunately are purported to cause a number of unwanted side-effects which can lead to serious long-term problems. On the other hand, 5-HTP is completely safe and can naturally enhance Serotonin levels within the body and brain without side-effects.

Good News for Old L-Tryptophan Users: 5-HTP is not the amino acid L-Tryptophan, yet 5-HTP is thought to be ten times more powerful in producing Serotonin than L-Tryptophan! 5-HTP is one important biochemical step removed from L-Tryptophan, having an additional hydroxyl radical attached, and is only one biochemical step away from becoming Serotonin.

Please note: The CDC and the Mayo Clinic cleared the role of L-Tryptophan in the EMS outbreak in 1992, having determined that the real causal factor was a contaminated batch of the amino acid produced solely by Showa Denka Corporation in Japan, and not the amino acid itself. Indeed, L-Tryptophan is still safely being used in infant feeding formulas and parenteral IV solutions (all of which are approved by the FDA).

Does Deprex Work For Bipolar Dysfunction As Well?

Yes, it does. Micro-Nutritional potencies of Lithium Carbonate and Lithium Bromide (derived from the naturally occurring alkali metal) have been found to be exceptionally effective for Cyclothymia and Bipolar disorders, restoring clear sentient thinking and appropriate reality testing, as well
as mood stabilization for potentially explosive and unpredictable mood swings of severe bipolar disorders/manic depressive episodes.

Important: Please note that because Lithium is prepared and registered as an OTC micro-nutritional in Deprex, it will not impose a pharmacological effect on the body or brain, and is thus without the side effects and possible dangers associated with standard preparations of conventional pharmaceutical Lithium Salts. The Lithium Salts used in Deprex are therefore completely safe and free from any adverse side effects.

Is Deprex Safe To Use With Other Medications?

Attention Physicians, Psychologists and Mental Health Care Professionals: Deprex will not interfere with any prescription drug, nor is it contraindicated with the use of any other antidepressant
medication. In fact, because of its nutritive value and micro-nutritional counterpart, Deprex may safely be used conjointly with other antidepressant medications if desired, actually enhancing the effectiveness of other drug use, as it does not interfere with, or compete against, normal neurobiochemical functioning. However, under no circumstance should this formula be recommended in lieu of professional therapeutic and medicinal intervention.

Important: A therapeutic strategy involving the use of Deprex with other drugs, or as a replacement strategy, is the sole discretion of a person’s Physician or Health Professional. In all cases of clinical depression, always seek a Physician’s guidance first; intervention without your Physician’s guidance is not recommended.
