I am a w/53yrold female suffering from chronic severe, treatment resistent depression for many years, this last episode is now in the 2nd year, I am on my third psychitrist. My current doctor is at Johns Hopkins and is well known in the field of mental illenss. If have tried every anti-dpressent known to man, I even had 7 ECTS last year, and they did not help! I don't understand what is wrong. I see ads that depression can be helped, but nothing has helped me. I want to feel better so badly, it's making me more depressed. I never go out of the house, or get dressed and most days don't get out of bed except when my husband takes me to the doctors or the hospital. Luckily I have an understanding husband and no children to care for, so sleeping all day is only hurting me. Does anyone have any advise or suggestions for me? thank you so much

If you have tried every medical treatment, maybe it is time to try nutritional treatment. Lack of a proper balanced nutritional lifestyle can cause medical treatments to fail and medicines are not always the answer either. Sometimes, medications can cause more imbalance than they prevent.
A balanced nutritional program has changed my life totally. I have been suffering from severe depression for more than 30 years. After I started on my balanced program, my life has changed majorly.
If you have further questions and/or comments, please feel free to contact me at any time.
Blessings in all that you do.
