Anti-Depressant Protest at the White House!

Go Here
I won’t be able to attend, but will be with these great people in spirit! Praying it will help the truth to come out more fully!

Quote from article:
“The Prozac Survivors group points to Magdalena Lopez as an example of violence caused by SSRIs. The 30-year-old Indiana mother recently murdered her two young sons while on one of the drugs.

At least 80,000 women each year in this country are being prescribed these drugs during pregnancy, according to researchers estimates. SSRIs are still being prescribed to pregnant women even though a May 2005 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association reported that pregnant women who take SSRIs late in pregnancy raise the risk that their babies will suffer jitteriness, irritability and serious respiratory problems during their first couple of weeks.

Leitsch finds it unacceptable that pregnant women and new mothers are still being prescribed drugs that have been known to induce violence and suicide for more than a decade. “In 1991, there was evidence of 500 deaths associated with antidepressants presented to an FDA Advisory Committee hearing investigating Prozac,” she said.”

“Doctors say they began prescribing books due to their concern that many patients were either being medicated too hastily or going untreated, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The program, called “bibliotherapy,” is also a cost-saving measure. The state-run health care system in the UK can’t afford one-to-one counseling for everyone, and patients can wait as long as 18 months for an appointment.
The National Institute for Clinical Excellence, a British health agency, endorsed bibliotherapy in December, recommending that physicians try self-help books or other kinds of counseling before medication.
“Concerns about overuse of antidepressants – and about how to treat the growing depression burden in general – have been voiced in many countries, including the U.S., making the British experiment a test case for others to watch,” the Post reports.”

Reading self help books is great – I wrote one – A Mother’s Journey contains all of my tips for helping prevent depression.
But for me the most effective thing I do every day to prevent Depression is to eat Flax seeds. I put a half teaspoon of them into my oatmeal water every morning, and let them boil along with the oats, and then eat them along with the cereal. Flax oil contains ingredients which have helped alleviate my depression. I’m sitting here eating a big bowl of it even as I blog.

Here is the recipe:
Put one quart of water in a pot, add in:
1/2 tsp whole flax seeds
1 tsp sea salt
1 cinnamon stick
3 whole cloves
1/2 c dried cherries
1/8 tsp each of whole anise and fennel seeds
3 whole cardomon pods
Hard boil this for twenty minutes to saturate the water with the oils, herbs, and spices (which all contain powerful anti-oxidents and make the oats taste great). These spices aid digestion, especially the fennel, and really up the nutrition of your breakfast.

Then I fish the cardamon pods, cinnamon stick, and cloves out of the water (it’s no fun to chomp down on a whole clove!) And then I add 1 and 1/2 cups old fashioned oatmeal to the pot. Hard boil for a minute and then turn the heat down to a simmer (low) for about twenty minutes.
I let my kids put as much sugar, cream, and butter on as they want as this helps them chow it down. We polished off a whole pot of Oats this morning, as well as a dozen rye muffins, and a huge hunk of watermelon.
Cost to feed my family breakfast from scratch? About $4.00.
Cost for me to take one Prozac pill back in 1989? $3.00.
Do the math, I’ll keep eating my flax…
