My Mood: Safe Alternative/Integrative Approaches to  Treating Depression

Interesting article, DejaVu,

I agree that results should focus on Personalised Medicine rather than Average Results. Focussed treatments for all issues is the future.

Shame Omega3 will not help me. I eat plenty of oily fish with no Mood Elevation, but I believe I am a Lost Cause. If only a cure for Depressive Personality Disorder were that simple.

Dave.

Reading thru this thread I have changed my Omega 3 to Jarrow EPA/DHA Balance product.
I take 2 softgels daily. Nothing negative and believe Omega 3's are important. I eat some seafoods but not a lot. Had some wonderful salmon the other day...sauted in coconut oil.

For me I can say Thyroid support (NP Thyroid), Vit D3/K2 and Dhea have kept me out of depression. I had a 10 yr depression 1991-2002....

Dave, I had never heard of your DPD until I read about it from you. Have you worked with the 3 I mentioned?

Hi Caroline,

My thyroid levels are always good. D is always low every year at my Test Time for which I supplement for several weeks. I cannot stay on D3 longterm due to calcium build up. Taking D3 and raising my levels has never alleviated my Depression in the slightest, I believe due to it being 'in-built'. DHEA can adversely affect the heart and cholesterol levels, things I cannot risk.

Dave.

Hi Dave, I was told my thyroid was good for 10 tough years of depression. Then I went to work, joined support groups and talked to a lot of people about the thyroid issue. In my opinion, so many do not get the thyroid support they truly need due to numbers and doctors who are not willing to dig deep. I've talked about this a lot and in the "old times" doctors didn't even go by labs or even had labs to help people with their long list of symptoms...they knew to do at least starting theraputic doses and go from there. That's what the D.O. who worked on my back for years, did in my case. No labs...

On the D issue, it's reported about the epidemic in our country and even more so in the UK.

I find this interesting as I'm researching L Methylfolate and I take 800 to 1600mcg daily as it's in my homocysteine formula. Now I'm finding more on the depression issue and pharma now has a "food grade drug"....it's pricey as I checked today. One can get otc
L Methylfolate and I think I'm going to take a little more daily to see if I get a Happy Lift...

Otc supp is still much lower strength than the drug mentioned in this article. There doesn't seem to be much of a side effect issue.

As always do your research.

My friend reminded me of the importance of optimal B12 and especially when taking higher Methylfolate. We talk about the importance of B12 here all the time.

Many out there have undiagnosed and untreated thyroid issues, a big one in t his area is Depression, I've been that route for 10 yrs...and it was sluggish thyroid.
