Uhm...so I started writing this self help book a few years ago in the midst of me being stuck in my feelings from the death of my grandmother, both my parents being ill and one of them deciding to leave the country permanantly and my divorce all happening in the same year. I wanted to take negativity I was feeling at the time and writie a self help book for...well myself. What I have realized though is that for me self help is just of series of stages into the person I want to be. I will be adding bits and pieces to this as I find them laid about my home or on my hard drive, or interdimensional portal.
For over eighty years the milk industry, through relentless advertising and the cooperation of our public school systems and the medical professions, has hammered a myth into the collective American psyche: that cow ' s milk is a healthy, calcium-rich food essential to building and maintaining strong bones and teeth.

This is an article detailing a way to combat depression without the use of anti-depressants. Obviously everyone is different; each depression sufferer suffers in their own way, each facing a different intensity to their depression, and everyone fights their depression in different ways, but these natural remedies are the two most common forms recommended when naturally combating depression.
I'm not recommending to immediately stop taking anti-depressants - that's dangerous! But anti-depressants are as unhealthy as the illness itself and there are better, and often times, more effective solutions to popping pills.
Here is a regimen outline for anyone interested in trying a new way to combat this deadly disease. I hope this helps anyone looking for help.
