Dear Living Fuel Family, 

In 2016, conventional medicine’s “solution” to clinical depression frequently includes a top-selling and highly profitable prescription medication.  Browse the side effects of these drugs and they can sound worse that the condition they claim to alleviate!  Just a generation ago, the “prescription” for diagnosed depression was rest and sunshine, both free! 

It’s great to see that much study is underway and findings are emerging that reveal a better way to treat clinical depression.  Natural solutions such as Omega-3 fish oil and Vitamin D are showing promising results in lab and, more importantly, in the lives of those battling with debilitating and paralyzing depression. 

Today on LivingFuelTV, join me for just three minutes as we discuss and uncover some treatments and ideas to treat depression.  Click on the graphic below to join me and consider forwarding the message to someone you love.

Here’s to your Super Health!

Researchers and scientists have long acknowledged the reality of the placebo effect, the measurable effect that belief in treatment alone will yield positive results. Reliable studies on the efficacy of therapies and pharmaceuticals consist of two groups of participants—one group that is given the actual therapy or drug, and the other given a placebo, a simple glucose (sugar) pill. The results are often astounding.

We’ll be back with you next week, however, today on LivingFuelTV, we direct you to a fascinating story titled Treating Depression that recently aired on the renowned CBS News television program 60 Minutes. The story explores the impact of the placebo effect and features Dr. Irving Kirsch of Harvard Medical School. This insightful 13-minute segment leaves a powerful impression and is a must-watch for anyone taking or considering prescription medication.
