Antidepressants do more harm than good

Antidepressant medication are the first-line treatment for people meeting the current diagnostic criteria for major depressive disorder.  They are designed to throw into confusion the mechanisms that regulates the neurotransmitter seretonin. 

Seretonin regulates many adaptive processes, including: emotions, development, nueronal growth and death, blood clotting, electrolyte balance, attention and reproduction.

Anti depressants at their best have a moderate effect in managing depressive symptoms for some people however they can increase the brain’s capacity for future episodes  after they are discontinued. They  can also cause developmental problems, adverse effects on sexuality, increase the risk of bleeding, stroke and death in the elderly.

The brain has the ability to balance itself with the right techniques, relaxation, meditation, behaviours  and lots of practise.
