THE DEPRESSION NEMESIS
C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D.
The evidence is overwhelming—40% of Americans suffer from depression at some time in life. Another 40% have what I call a subclinical depressive miasma-they are just not happy. Having worked with 30, 268 chronically depressed individuals who had failed the great wasteland of clinical medicine, the only fact more depressing is the failure of antidepressant drugs is the continuing prescribing of them! Four major scientific articles, including one in the New England Journal of Medicine, state that IF ALL THE NEGATIVE STUDIES HAD BEEN ALLOWED TO BE PUBLISHED, THE NET RESULT WOULD BE ZERO. Seventy-five percent of negative studies are banned by the PharmacoMafia and not allowed to be published. Furthermore, antidepressants INCREASE the risk of suicide at all ages!! I do not know whether Robin Williams was on such useless and dangerous drugs, but I do regret that I did not have the opportunity to help him.
In 40 years my success rate in treating depression was 85%. The program was simple but intense for the more severe cases:
The Liss Cranial Electrical Stimulator, one hour mornings
A good B complex
Lithium Orotate 15 to 20 mg, except 45 mg in bipolar
The Shealy RelaxMate, one hour at bedtime
Self-regulation Training—Autogenic training and Biogenics®
In the past three years for mild to moderate depression I have had 80% success just using Air Bliss, which takes less than one minute a day. It raises Oxytocin in over 80% of individuals. Although I have published extensively on the multiple biochemical abnormalities in depression, Oxytocin deficiency appears to be the single most important. What the World Needs is More Oxytocin!!!
