'They' are touting anti-depressants again, despite the fact that they work no better than dummy pills.

BBC News reports that despite only one in seven patients in a study experiencing improvement after 12 weeks, the study leader Professor Tony Kendrick, a GP and researcher at the University of Southampton, said although the National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence wants doctors to restrict SSRIs to the most severe cases, the SSRI drugs should be prescribed for mild to moderate depression and were 'good value for money'.

I wonder why Professor Kendrick says this, when it is so clearly not true? - Fortunately, Dr Tim Kendall, joint director of the National Collaborating Centre for Mental Health, has sensibly pointed out that using drugs for mild to moderate depression doesn't make much sense because of the risk of a lot of side-effects. He advocates psychological therapies.

Remember, Anti-depressants 'no better than dummy pills'

Non-drug therapies for depression include

a walk in the country (recommended by MIND, the mental health charity) and

improving nutrition by avoiding dieting (a well-known cause of depression) and avoiding eating salt and salty food.

Lose weight, reduce your risk of most cancers, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, stroke, heart disease, vascular dementia, osteopenia, osteoporosis, hypercholesterolaemia, depression, liver and kidney problems, and improve your health in many other ways without drugs or expense by eating less salt! - Try it! - You will feel so much better!
