A Simple Cure for Depression

Depression is a serious, widespread mental health problem, which degrades people's life experience, causes or exacerbates other illnesses, sometimes leads to suicide or drug abuse, and may reduce life expectancy. It has spawned a host of pharmaceutical remedies, such as Prozac, Paxil, or Zoloft, although for some people the side effects may be worse than the disease.

Among its many bad effects, depression can cause a vicious circle. If you get "depressed about being depressed," it can spiral out of control and potentially kill you, especially if other factors are present such as poor health, or means of self-destruction.

I was depressed on and off for much of my life, for the usual reasons of things not working out and possible genetic predisposition. However, in November 2003 I managed to permanently cure myself, in a very simple drug-free way, which has had many good consequences.

Basically, my method is as follows. I noticed that depression manifests itself as some type of "chemical reaction" that causes pain in the sinuses and chest. Therefore, as a purely mental exercise, envision that you take a cold, wet sponge and use it to wipe that bad chemical out of those two areas.

After I did that, it came back a few times, but never for more than a few minutes, and it left again as soon as I wiped it with my imaginary cold sponge. Since then it's never come back.

Afterward you'll still have all your same problems as before. But you'll have ONE LESS problem, namely you won't be depressed. Use the time, energy and emotion freed up by this change to deal in positive ways with your other problems and get your life back on track.

Once your house is in better order you can consider helping others. Previously that might have been questionable, but now that you are more stable you can share your good fortune.
