The Key to Eliminating Depression Is Emotional Issues Not Drugs

People suffering from depression can recover almost immediately from the affliction by removing underlying emotional issues rather than resorting to medication. I have seen many clients who have been on anti-depressant drugs for years, and they are just progressively getting worse all the while they are going from one drug to another and upping the dose until it no longer works, so they are then put on another drug.

Depression is an emotional state caused by underlying emotional issues such as anxiety and anger, which can completely incapacitate people. Depression is caused by other emotional problems, people will usually have these other emotional problems, then some thing traumatic happens or it just builds up over time then they fall into a depressed state, then they are then trapped in this state cycling between them all. Mainstream medicine is at a loss as to how to deal with depression, and many alternative practitioners also don’t know how to treat emotions directly. Main stream medicine is focused on science and what can be measured, like the chemical balance of the brain in depressed people, then the theory is you take drugs to restore the balance.

So they don't have any idea how to measure emotions, or even how to treat them and if they could, how to measure a change? So they just avoid emotions altogether.

While alternative practitioners are more focused on negative thought patterns and altering them through giving suggestions while under hypnosis, to solve the emotional problem, because most have not been taught how emotions work and even how to work with them directly, so they attempt to do it indirectly through suggestions. However most often this just doesn't work! You have to treat the emotions directly. 

Drugs are just masking the emotions causing the problem and not treating them. Because all emotions have a physical component, so you will feel certain sensations in your body that are associated with that emotion. For example people who experience anxiety may have some of the following physical symptoms, heart racing, butterflies in stomach, sweating, tight chest, tingling in hands etc. this is just a few of them.

What the drugs are doing is stopping you from feeling all those physical sensations in your body, so you will feel better. Unfortunately this is a problem because you will get used to the drug and it will stop working, then you feel all those physical sensations again, you are on the merry go round, different doses, different drug etc your trapped in a vicious cycle. All the while the depression continues to get worse, because the drugs are treating the symptoms of the depression and not the cause.

Those in positions to help people with depression just don’t understand how emotions work or how people create them, so how do we expect them to be able to treat them?

A man came and saw me 2 years ago for depression at his wives prompting, and we got him an amazing result. After 2 years they then bought down from Sydney their daughter, a young woman in her early 20's to see me for depression as well and I discovered she had a lot of anger, anxiety, overwhelm and trust issues in relationships.

She was struggling in all parts of her life especially her personal relationships, she couldn't trust the other person due to what happened to her in her past relationships, She was also holding onto a person she was involved with in the past and not letting go of them, so she was in a bind which made her sabotage her relationships subconsciously because she had not let go of that person from a past relationship.

She didn’t need to suffer in this way when solutions existed that could help eliminate the depression. By identifying all negative emotions causing the depression and some beliefs she had, they were then removed from her body through hypnotherapy.

She completely turned her life around to the point that she even looked like a different person.

I have seen people experience amazing changes in their emotional wellbeing simply by removing the depression and how they create it.

There were several ways that a person’s underlying emotional issues could be addressed:

  • Identify and Remove Emotions: We store all our emotions in our body, which are attached to memories. By removing the emotions from the memories, they are removed from the body. You will not be able to get back any of the depression.
  • Negative thoughts or Beliefs: Our thoughts and beliefs have emotions attached to them, and by removing them we also remove the emotions. You wont be able to get back any of the old thoughts that used to plague you they are just gone.
  • Not Focusing on the Problem: By stopping people from focusing on their problem, the problem is eliminated. You will stop thinking of the problem so it will just not come into your mind anymore, as well as the emotions.
  • Physical sensations: All emotions have physical sensations associated with them, such as anxiety, which can be felt in the stomach as butterflies. If you focus on eliminating the physical sensations you feel more relaxed and associated emotions are also eliminated.

NLP Master Trainer and Hypnotherapist Adriana James said one thing was clear, your emotional makeup must be acknowledged on a daily basis. “Negative emotions must be released if you are to maintain a strong and vibrant body,” Ms James said.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has predicted that by 2020, depression will be the second biggest health problem world-wide, behind heart diseases.

This is a frightening thought considering that depression was already having a huge impact on the community The sooner people realise that their depression can actually be eliminated the better we will be as a society, Once we know the cause we can offer permanent solutions.
