Dr. Stephen Ilardi offers an explanation and tells you how you can treat it without relying on drugs.
Every once in a while a video appears on my Facebook feed that is actually worth watching, and this is one of them. A big thanks to my friend Shannon for sharing this.
I’ve suffered from depression since I was in my teens, and have been on and off a variety of medications over the years. I currently take venlafaxine, brand name Effexor, to treat my depression and it seems to work well. I would ultimately like to be able to not take anything to treat it other than those things that Dr. Ilardi talks about in the video.
He also gives a very good explanation for why we are seeing depression reach epidemic levels in the modern day, and it’s really quite simple. We as human beings are simply not equipped to handle living in the era that we live in. It’s an interesting perspective and I would urge anyone living with depression to give this a watch.
