This is exactly what happened to me! I had a great family, a great husband, great
blessings and yet I felt a heaviness, a dark cloud, guilt because why did I
feel so sad, angry, frustrated when I had so much to be grateful for—and I was grateful!
— This type of depression is the result of toxins,
not a bad attitude! (p. 187)
— As a result of our modern living, over time the
body accumulates toxic heavy metals.
They eventually settle into the “area of the brain near the thalamus…if
an acidic environment is coupled with a high-protein, fat-based diet, the
metals will start oxidizing, which creates a poisonous chemical pool that
contaminates brain cells and lowers electrical impulse activity. This disruption…can create a depressive
disorder, which can sneak up on a person when least expected. This oxidation isn’t necessarily continuous. If the runoff from the toxic heavy metals
happens on an occasional basis, you will experience depression only
sporadically, with no apparent rhyme or reason for each episode.” (p 187)
Non-metal toxins can also create neuron and
neurotransmitter damage that leads to depression. Pesticides and herbicides,
formaldehyde (in household products and preservative in processed food),
solvents (used in carpet cleaning, household cleaning…), and food additives
(MSG, aspartame, sulfites…)
combat with heavy metal detox
Suggestions from author Anthony William:
Barley Juice Extract Powder: draws out heavy metals from the spleen, intestinal tract, pancreas, and reproductive system. It prepares the mercury for complete absorption by the spirulina. Drink 1-2 tsp mixed into juice or water.
Dulse Flakes: binds to mercury, lead, aluminum, copper, cadmium, and nickel. It binds to mercury and only releases it when it leaves the body. Eat 2 T daily.
Spirulina: (preferably from Hawaii) draws out heavy metals from the brain, central nervous system, and liver and absorbs heavy metals extracted by the barley juice powder. Take 2 tsp mixed in water, coconut water, or juice.
Wild Blueberries (from Maine): draws heavy metals out of the brain. Also heals and repairs any gaps created when the heavy metals are removed. 1 cup daily. (find in the freezer section
Cilantro: goes into hard-to-reach places and extracts metals from long ago. Blend 1 cup into a smoothie or eat plain or on a salad.

(The provided outlines of physical causes to depression comes from Medical Medium by Anthony William. I use it because my personal experience in researching and personally overcoming root causes to depression has taught me these truths—just on a different level. Mr. William’s work is the next step in understanding what is physically behind depression and what to do about it from a physical level. I offer clients the understanding of how the physical and emotional components combine in creating depression and anxiety. I guide clients to the resources to find the physical healing and then coach them on how to find emotional freedom using tools to master belief processes.)
