Medication, Herbs or Meditation? What Is Anxiety Disorder? Chronic Fatigue Syndrome How I Cope With Social Anxiety What Is It Like to Be Depressed? What Is It Like to Be Agoraphobic? Have Financial Anxiety? Have Kundalini Problems?
Nancy’s son, Josh, could not withstand lithium’s side-effects and suffered massive and horrible mood swings until a full-spectrum mineral supplement saved her son’s life.
What is the preferred treatment for anxiety, depression and related nervous problems? There is a huge assortment of products available today claiming to cure anxiety, depression and related problems.
I personally would have a very hard time trying to decide at first what form of treatment would be best for dealing with anxiety/depression. I am putting the two together here because they often do occur together, however not always simultaneously: as sometimes the victim may for a few days have anxiety and yet have more energy (adrenalin) and then go for a few days or weeks of depression and/or fatigue, yet with much less anxiety.
I think the form of treatment depends on one’s inclination, degree of sensitivity (to side-effects of medication, etc.) and how severe the symptoms. I always have been quite sensitive to medications and they only seemed to create more side-effects and made my symptoms worse. However, I found herbs and antioxidants (such as glutathione, selenium, vitamin E, alpha lipoic acid, etc.) to be, by far the best thing for my sensitive nature and spiritual temperament.
The difference between herbs (botanicals) and medication (drugs) is that drugs seem to have a more forceful, unnatural, unbalancing effect, which is fine for some people if they are not that worried or sensitive about their bodies and not that concerned about side-effects and/or can’t be bothered with taking the time to learn about all the possible, gentler, alternative treatments available.
The correct application of the right amounts of botanicals, vitamins, minerals, and other antioxidants can be used to treat the cause of the problem with excellent results rather than just hide or artificially alter the symptoms like drugs tend to do. This difference is not absolutely always apparent regarding drugs verses herbs and/or supplements, but it is generally true. There may be some herbs taken at the right therapeutic dosages that do have side-effects like drugs. However, almost anything can create side-effects if too much is taken.
Now there is also a whole other side to treatment that uses neither herbs, diet, antioxidants or drugs which includes meditation, yoga, hypnosis, counseling, and mental reprogramming. Some of these techniques only retrain the mind to think differently, often involving the unlearning of bad habits to be replaced with good habits. Others actually attempt to suspend all thought and to guide the mind into deeper and deeper states of concentration until samadhi is reached.
In the mildest cases where all that is needed is some stress management, then meditation, hypnosis, counseling, or similar types of treatment may be all that’s required. However in moderate cases, dietary changes, herbs, and antioxidants, etc. should also be considered. In the most severe cases, obviously professional care, but preferably a physician who knows how to wean one off medication and then be able to find the correct mental balance through superior nutritional diets, herbs and antioxidants in combination with some counseling, hypnosis, and/or meditation.
In moderate to severe cases, meditation and yoga might not be the best thing, especially too much. Like I said before, too much of anything can have side-effects, however, those with moderate to severe mental symptoms, may be quite surprised and disappointed to find that too much meditation can make their symptoms even more exaggerated!
If a severe case of anxiety disorder is not at first treated biochemically with correct nutrition, antioxidants, etc., then a good session of deep relaxation might actually lead to an even deeper state of anxiety and even possibly a few panic attacks! This is because anything out of the ordinary, and even the slightest change in consciousness can cause considerable fear in the highly strung or sensitive individual.
Same thing regarding severe depression during meditation: if one who is depressed and feels poorly motivated is most likely going to be much, much worse after a long period of meditation because motivation or inclination to action is one of the first things that dissolve or disappear during deep meditation.
The transmutation of desire and motivation into inner peace, harmony, bliss, contentment and even outright joy is what is supposed to happen when a healthy person meditates. However, in a not so healthy individual, the opposite state can happen: creating the more pathological effects of an extreme lack of motivation, disassociation with life, extreme withdrawal, spacey feelings, and very poor appetite. The degree of concentration required meditate properly is also quite hard to reach when the mind is burdened or limited by depression and/or anxiety.
Medication is more forceful than herbal and other nutritional therapies, and tends to have many more side-effects and other complications than the gentle botanicals. However, the best long term treatment approach for very severe cases would be in conjunction with the help of a qualified health practitioner to gradually wean one off the drugs, figure out what metabolic problem is causing the distress in the first place, and apply the correct vitamins, minerals and herbs best suited to balance out any metabolic weaknesses.
In most moderate to severe cases, the mind-body approach of meditation, hypnosis, etc., cannot stand on its own, and needs to be used in conjunction with herbs, diet, etc., otherwise it is possible that it can do more harm than good. In mild cases of stress or emotional upset, meditation, improved eating and supplementation habits can be just fine and even profoundly beneficial in some cases.

WHY NOT BASE YOUR ENTIRE DIET ONLY ON HEALING RAW FRUITS AND VEGETABLES?
I discovered a perfected, life-changing, utterly unique, oval-vegan diet regimen and lifestyle that goes way beyond conventional practice. If it is carefully understood and followed, this wholesome lifestyle can help you enjoy unprecedented levels of health, healing and well-being at every moment. I stumbled across a diet and way of life so pure and so effective at physical, mental and spiritual rejuvenation, it gives me tremendous bliss and tremendous satisfaction in every aspect of my life. The words of this sacred book will guide you up toward ecstatic levels of health and well-being far beyond conventional diet wisdom that not even a single physician, dietitian, or spiritual guru even knows about, or at least not yet.
There is so much to learn however. I will describe all the phases, stages and difficulties to avoid while attempting to reach such high levels of perfected eating for the lasting enjoyment of wholeness that you would never, ever want to return to the old ways of eating again. One must first learn, understand and overcome many of the hazardous food and drug addictions plaguing our society and gradually replace all one’s deleterious habits and toxic substances with only wholesome, organic fruits and vegetables completely free of all cell-damaging gluten, lectins and other miscreant substances. Organic, raw fruits, herbs, and vegetables are indeed the greatest healers of all time. Why not base a diet entirely on them?
Did you know that nature only intended humans to eat 100% raw food? Are you aware that even some of the most natural seed-based foods such as nuts, seed, whole grains, and legumes all contain potentially inflammatory substances such as lectins and gluten resulting in the eventual development of all manner of chronic degenerative diseases such as depression, anxiety, fatigue, diabetes, arthritis, heart failure and cancer? And if any so-called food needs to be cooked to make it palatable and/or less toxic, it should not even be considered as “food” in the first place! Multiple diseases of all kinds and years of incredible suffering can be avoided just by knowing this truth.
One may think that after eliminating these foods there would be none or far too few foods left to choose from. This assumption is far from true as there are countless varieties of super foods, herbs, fruits and vegetables to choose from that contain complete protein and are fully nourishing for the body, especially if you include raw, organic, pasture-raised eggs, algae, and edible fungi along with the vast variety of organic fruits, herbs and vegetables now being grown throughout the world. Learn which vegetables can be used to directly replace all toxic high-gluten whole grains and deadly high-lectin legumes and enjoy the amazing health benefits of living on a completely seed-free, 100% raw food diet supplemented with several tantalizing and delicious superfoods such as chlorella, bee pollen, pine pollen, and pasture raised eggs. Discover which fruit is a perfect replacement for all nuts and seed.
Just as vital as making sure only the correct foods go into your mouth, you also need to allow only the most constructive and helpful thoughts of prosperity and goodness to enter your sacred heart, mind and spirit. Once you have mastered your diet, one also needs to understand and master one’s relationship with vital, subtle energy and learn how to use that energy, correct eating, plenty of mineral water and herbs to blissfully transmute the sexual energy which would uplift you into an even higher state of fulfillment and well-being far more valuable than anything you ever experienced before.
You will learn how this diet and lifestyle of wholeness can lead you toward living more and more on the prana from nature rather than calories from solid foods. You will find that you will feel gradually less hungry and more blissfully energetic, opening up new avenues of inner experience through ecstatic dreams and deep meditation into the realms of samadhi, astral travel and the afterlife. You will find out that there is actually a wonderful life after death and that God (unconditional love and everlasting joy) can be realized and discovered as your true nature within your self.
