Pay attention long enough, and the pattern becomes as obvious as the nose on your face.
You’ll wonder why you didn’t see it before…
- An “alternative health” solution is mocked by the mainstream.
- Studies “proving” it doesn’t work get extensive media coverage.
- A drug company figures out a way to profit from the solution.
- Suddenly POSITIVE press hits. New talking points surface. And guidelines get changed.
In fact, I recently told you how one of America’s favorite supplements, fish oil, is arriving at the end of this cycle.
Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) are officially a media darling.
A drug company has developed a patentable version of what you get in a quality fish oil supplement. And now major mainstream medicine organizations… and the press… are suddenly embracing PUFAs.
For example, the American Heart Association just issued a “scientific statement” declaring omega-3 fatty acids are both safe and effective for slashing dangerous triglycerides.
And now the International Society for Nutritional Psychiatry Research (ISNPR) has given its blessings to PUFAs too. The ISNPR recently published guidelines declaring omega-3s can help treat major depression.
(Yup, we knew that TOO.)
PUFAs embraced as a depression remedy
The new guidelines refer to the growing stack of evidence that PUFAs are major mood helpers. In other words, they can be a valuable part of your treatment for depression.
For those responding well to an antidepressant, the folks at the ISNPR say PUFAs can accelerate the effectiveness of the meds.
Plus, they can help fill in gaps when the drugs AREN’T performing up to par. Which, of course, we know, is likely FAR more often than mainstream medicine likes to admit.
The ISNPR even recommends PUFAs to help head off depression BEFORE it starts. A solution folks who practice integrative medicine have ALREADY been using for well over a decade.
Beat back depression NATURALLY
To help treat major depression, the ISNPR is recommending one to two grams per day (1000 to 2000 mg) of a high-quality EPA supplement… or a combo of EPA and DHA… for at least eight weeks.
And popping a daily fish oil pill once you begin to recover from your depression could also help KEEP the blues at bay.
If you are prone to depression, PUFAs are a terrific start. But why stop there?
Other proven natural mood equalizers include…
- Lactobacillus plantarum (a probiotic)
Have a talk with your own doctor about how you can incorporate any one, or all, of these safe and natural solutions into your OWN anti-depression treatment plan.
