Suicide, Depression & Antidepressants

From the Juice Lady…

It is with a heavy heart that I am sharing that a dear friend of mine committed suicide this week. She was on an antidepressant because she’d been depressed and wasn’t sleeping well. She was given the antidepressant to help her sleep. Instead it clouded her judgment and she took her life with those pills. I am absolutely devastated. That is why I’m writing this newsletter to warn you. Beware of antidepressants. The drug my friend was on has a high incidence of suicides. And if you aren’t sleeping well, use something besides an antidepressant to sleep. Warn everyone you know. These drugs are dangerous.

Here is the rest of her Post… very sobering.

Fasting and the 2016 Nobel Prize in Medicine

A student of fasting for over 40 years, I began Blogging about it some eight plus years ago, in a post on Juice Fasting. In fact things have gotten to the point where we have to put “fasting” in quotes, to clarify what we mean because it is becoming as meaningless a word as “natural”.

Here there are a number of Posts on the subject.

This Blue Zones Blog Post reviewing the work of Japanese cell biologist Yoshinori Ohsumi, who did win the 2016 Nobel Prize for Medicine as a result of his work on autophagy (a process that happens when you abstain from food – or by the way – to some extent when you exercise), is the most important Post on this entire Blog!

My wife thinks that this Wedge of Awareness Post is my best, but here, in this Blue Zones Post is a gold mine of amazing information that can and would change your life for the better – no matter how bad off or how well off you are right now.

It is not something that you do; it’s something you don’t do!

It is free. It takes less time than whatever it is you are doing now. It is simple. And, with just the simplest and easiest of rules to follow, you can not screw it up. You can do it in progressions: start where you are, and gradually lengthen the time between “supper” and “breakfast”. Simple. Drink water (you know the water that I recommend, but get the best water you can find and afford).

(This needs a disclaimer: do this only under the supervision of a doctor – you may be too sick for the cure – it may not be for you. Perhaps there is some valid reason why you can not stretch out the time between supper and breakfast (you might be in the 1% – a guess – for whom this is not appropriate). If it turns out to be a rough ride from where you are to get back to health, you may want a partner to help guide you. Include your doctor in the process, it will education them as much as it does you!)

I could get more emphatic, but…

… it would not do any good.

Now it is up to you.
