Talking Beat the Blues

Hi all, there is a new form of treatment out there for beating the blues and depression. It is not really well heard of but it is called Beat the Blues, by a company called Ultrasis. Only problem is, doctors would rather send us packing with a prescription for Seroxant or something.

Lets get this new treatment available all over, ask your doctor or GP for details of Beat the Blues. It is drug free. From what I have hear it works on a computer. It must be better than taking a tablet all the time.

You have nothing to lose from Asking for information.

Good luck all.

Re: Beat the Blues

It sounds like a text file that tells you to do exercise and eat right. From experience, some people are just chemically imbalanced, and need drugs to feel like others feel.

Re: Beat the Blues

I agree that some people are sadder than others, but since there's no evidence that an imbalance in brain chemistry causes depression, trying to treat it is a huge and dangerous guessing game. Unlike most "diseases" there's no way to test for imbalances or what a drug is doing to our brains.

I've known a LOT of people who never tried exercise, a good diet, cutting out alcohol, had blood work done and on and on before they get put on antidepressants. I've been on depression message boards for 6 years and it's very, very rare for doctors to try to heal people naturally first. They don't even suggest these approaches or warn about alcohol, pot, caffeine, etc. They figure that people are too lazy, stubborn or weak to make changes, so prescribe drugs.

Re: Beat the Blues

May not be a compelling case for the monoamine hypothesis for depr, but there is scientific evidence that serotonin pathways - and whatever governs them - are implicated in MDD. And there is a wealth of information on specific drugs' effect on the brain. It's just not something you can easily find unless you read medical or scientific journals.

Example, study published recently states p11 gene that codes for the 1B serotonin receptor is underexpressed in depressed rats (shared by humans I assume):
