COGNITIVE LIBERTY – Getting a Grip – With Guest Ben Fuchs R. PH.
WATCH THIS GREAT SHOW BELOW INTRO ARTICLE
By Cognitive Liberty Host: Clyde Lewis
On this episode of Cognitive Liberty, I talk with Natural Pharmacist – Ben Fuchs about how the foods we eat not only affect our bodies, but our minds as well. We also discuss the various ways we can attain the proper nutrition through finding out what supplements work best for us on an individual basis, in order to balance our brain chemistry.
As many of you are aware, I am vigilant now about my health both physically and mentally and in my daily research, I did some reading about depression and how to determine if you have depression is based on your environment or if you have fallen into despair and you need a life preserver.
Helplessness is the most destructive of human emotions. Human beings respond to helplessness with depression or, more commonly, rage. When people look for help, they are told sometimes that they are needy and they need to “get a grip” the truth is it isn’t all bout neediness, and so it feels as if that kind of advice (get a grip) is like a cold shoulder and every little problem feels greater and you feel as if you are being pushed around.
We have all been there and you don’t have to have a tragedy to find yourself in a situation where you find that our modern American culture has outrun the biology of our brains.
With everything being billed as a threat or a crisis today, our brains are going into overdrive. We have a reward mechanism that brings us happiness, but the part of the brain that creates the threat assessment has now been pushed over the top and so now while major triggers are obvious, simple things like rush-hour traffic, overdue mortgage payments, or repeated deadlines are triggering fight or flight responses in the brain.
When the “threat” is ongoing, stress disrupts the communication network between the brain and immune system and accelerates the production of molecules called cytokines; the overproduction of which can result in inflammation and disease.
I have spoken before about cytokine storms as a result of bad vaccines, but I never knew that stress and depression created them. Cytokines in the body can result in inflammation and disease.
Prolonged stress also prompts the brain to release cortisol, a hormone that raises blood sugar and blood pressure.
I was eager to talk about it because I have friends who have suffered with depression and many listeners have shared with me their struggles with it.
The biggest complaint I hear though is not really about the depression, but the idea of being on medication that has horrible side effects and how it is difficult to wean yourself from many of these drugs.
It can be argued that the over-medicating of the population by doctors with psychoactive drugs, SSRI’s, opiates and the decriminalizing of the use of marijuana is contributing to the chemically induced state of our nation and that reality is now being clouded by these methods
The significance of this information is in my opinion very important because it shifts our focus from viewing depression as being a disease caused by a chemical imbalance, which often requires medication to correct, to being a symptom of a deeper, underlying problem. It also leads to entirely new avenues of treatment many of them more effective and safer than antidepressant drugs.
Too often we look at our everyday experiences as if they were a fact of nature, just something we have to live with, but now we can find alternatives to the propaganda that we are fed about what drugs we need to take to put a psychological band aid on depression.
