365 Ways #108–Anti-depressants vs. placebos vs. the Foundational Principles of Health Posted on September 10, 2010, 0 Comments
#108–An article by Dr. Mark Hyman in the Huffington Post shows that anti-depressants DON’T work and that 80% of people got better results with a placebo. After looking at 74 studies involving 12 anti-depressant drugs and over 12,000 people, researchers discovered that 37 of 38 trials with positive results were published, while only 14 of 36 negative studies were published. Those that showed negative results were, in the words of the researchers, “published in a way that conveyed a positive outcome.”
So what do you do if you suffer from depression? Your first move should be eating real food, drinking enough water, sleeping at the right times, exercising appropriately, and avoiding toxic chemicals that do nothing but stress all of the body’s systems.
