Yes intuition and self awareness is an essential part of recovery. I agree.

Sometimes commentary is not needed. Some posts in themselves speak volumes (word to the wise..)

Yes I did read on the studies. Did he have any specific success in treating depression? And if so what were some of the statistics as regards that treatment modality and response rate as contrasted to conventional anti-depressents?

I assume your replying to my post about orthomolecular. I don't think Hoffer did studies specifially on depression. For early schizophrenia, success was about 75% compared to 35% for conventional treatments. This was around the 1950's and 60s and has continued like that by him and others since then; even improved more.

Offhand, I only know of a lot of anecdotal and clinical evidence about nutrients for depression. When a treatment is as safe adn inexpensive as B3 and C and others, it's worth a try. I've had some clinical success using these and other nutrients along with guided imagery, etc. I've gotten people off SSRIs by slowly replacing them with other nutrients that raise serotonin - tryptophan and 5-HTP - along with omega-3, B3 and C.
Depression is very complex, so obviously each person must be dealt with as an individual.

Depression can be realted to serotonin metabolism, or hormonal decline in sex hormones or HGH. Check out a new book that I just read " The Perfect 10 Diet,". It also disusses increasing omega-3 fatty acids in the diet and elimination of refined vegetable oils.

3 months is a long time to try just mindful meditation if in the throws of clinic depression. I have used mindfulness, traditional therapy and mends. If someone is severely depressed he or she needs medical evaluation.

Yes. It is helpful for a specific goal.

Hi Julie, I believe it may be the only liquid amino from Twinlab. It comes in 16 and 32 oz. grey bottles. About $15 for a 32oz. bottle. It's still my favorite and seems to help with my bloodsugar issues as well. Feel more even all day when I take it in the morning.
