What Dr. Weil Said …

October 3, 2009


Think you’re depressed? Wondering if antidepressants will help? Read  Dr. Andrew Weil’s column at Huffington Post first.

Then check out this amazing article from Wired Magazine on the power of placebos, particularly in dealing with depression.

Still not convinced? Take a look at Unstuck: Your Guide to the Seven Stage Journey Out of Depression by James S. Gordon, M.D. His theory: depression is not a disease but a symptom that life is out of balance. The fix is not going to be found in a pill, but in changing your life.   Gordon’s program is based on his 40 years’ experience teaching people how to gain a new perspective, something we could all use from time to time.

Short version:  do yourself a favor by doing some homework and then thinking long and hard about whether or not you need antidepressants.
