    Prozac – A Failure to Heal

    By Mark Schauss | February 26, 2008

    In an article published in PLoS Medicine by Drs. Kirsch and colleagues shows that the drug Prozac is no better than placebo in treating depression. Given that placebo has no side-effects, this means that Prozac is not only worthless, but dangerous. By including unpublished, negative studies, the authors found out that the drug is a waste of money and does not benefit the nearly 40 million people taking it.

    Better therapies include the use of amino acids among other more natural treatments. When I was suffering from depression back in the early 1980s, I used electrolytes developed by my late mentor John Kitkoski of Life Balances to help. Since my first exposure to them in 1984, I haven’t had one episode of depression. Because of that I developed a line of electrolytes for Crayhon Research called Peltier. Now be forewarned, this is not to be considered a treatment or cure of depression, it is something I feel personally helped me and may help others.

    Another ares to look at would be environmental toxins as some of them are known to cause depression. A deficiency of Prozac does not cause depression but an elevated level of lead or mercury can. Excessive exposure to solvents may also dampen mental acuity which in turn can bring on depression. Go to Crayhon Research’s website for more information about the types of tests that can help your health care practitioner determine your level of toxic exposure.
