Depression in Elderly Linked to Medications
Why Current Science May be Missing the Mark When it Comes to Depression
|Can strong faith really help depression? See inside . . .
What's going on?
Every time you turn on the television these days, there seems to be another advertisement for the latest and greatest medication to "turn you back into the person you used to be."
We seem to have turned into a country whose people are running on antidepressants . . .
Why are so many people in such emotional pain?
And when did life become so sad we had to turn to medications just to cope with it?
Medical experts point out the disturbing fact that the elderly — particularly over the age of 65 — are more prone to major depression than any other group. In fact, the rate of suicide within this age group continues to climb at a frightening rate.
You might think that's just a par for the course for older folks. They've endured more loss and more sickness. Perhaps they grow lonely because their children have moved away, or a spouse has died.
Well, as noted neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylock points out in a recent Newsmax newsletter, research shows those aren't the only reasons people may experience major depression.
Current Science May Be Missing the Mark When it Comes to Depression
In this Blaylock Wellness Report, "Overcome Depression and Its Deadly Effects," Dr. Blaylock takes the scientific community to task — and reveals the real reason so many people in our country are depressed.
And it's not just the elderly who are plagued with this seemingly epidemic condition. Even in younger age groups, depression seems to hit hard among certain ethnic groups. For some unknown reason, suicide rates are three times higher in whites than in the black population.
In his current newsletter, Dr. Blaylock discusses little-known factors that come into play when it comes to coping with life's stresses and trials. Not only that, he'll tell you how to avoid depression altogether — so you can live a full and happy life.
For example, you'll find out how strong faith actually combats depression.
Author and historian Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn observed that prisoners entering the Soviet gulag with no spiritual belief system rarely lived very long. However, prisoners with strong faith survived conditions seemingly beyond human endurance.
You'll also see how over activity of your immune system could actually lead to depression (and you may not even know your immune system is in revolt) . . .
Not only that, but while modern treatment of depression focuses on replacing neurotransmitters such as serotonin, elevation of another chemical — glutamate — may be the real culprit in this mysterious malady. Plus, glutamate may also be responsible for the rash of anxiety facing many of our aging population.

Don't Expect this Kind of Honesty
from the Mainstream Media
DR. RUSSELL BLAYLOCK
Author, Health Advocate
Russell Blaylock, M.D., not only compiles and edits
Newsmax.com's Blaylock Wellness Report, he's also a
nationally recognized board-certified neurosurgeon, health
practitioner, author, and lecturer.
He attended the Louisiana State University School of Medicine in New
Orleans and completed his internship and neurosurgical residency at
the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. For over a
quarter of a century, he practiced in the demanding field of
neurosurgery in addition to having a nutritional practice.
He recently retired from his neurosurgical duties to devote his full
attention to nutritional studies and research. Dr. Blaylock has
authored three books on nutrition and wellness:
- Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills
- Health and Nutrition Secrets That Can Save Your Life
- Natural Strategies for Cancer Patients
An in-demand guest for radio and TV programs, he
lectures extensively to both lay audiences and other physicians on a
variety of nutrition-related subjects.
Dr. Blaylock is the 2004 recipient of the
Integrity in Science Award granted by the Weston A. Price Foundation.
He serves on the editorial staff of the Journal of the American
Nutraceutical Association and is a member of the editorial board of the Journal
of American Physicians and Surgeons, official publication of the
Association of American Physicians and Surgeons.
He previously was assistant clinical professor of neurosurgery at the University
of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson and is a visiting biology professor at
the Belhaven College, also in Jackson.
The mainstream media only reports on the information they want you to know. And that's usually just information that comes their way via the billions of dollars spent on expensive advertising.
Television, magazines, and even traditional medical journals are filled with nothing but ads for expensive drugs to "cure" just about every ailment you can think of.
The worst part is the drugs they're promoting are, more times than not, loaded with toxic ingredients responsible for horrendous side effects.
Not to mention the bombardment of ads the food industry sends your way to sell you products you'd be better off never eating.
That kind of biased advertising costs a lot of money — but the amount of profits it stands to bring in for the big pharmaceutical and food corporations is staggering.
Do you think those huge companies want to risk the enormous profits they stand to lose by telling you the truth?
You bet they don't!
And I'm willing to bet that's why you subscribed to Newsmax in the first place.
You want the real facts — you want to make truly informed decisions about issues that affect your life at its most basic level.
Well, that's exactly who Dr. Blaylock is. He's not taken in by the propaganda of misinformation spread by the traditional media or by the mainstream medical community.
He presents the facts and only the facts. We love his "shoot straight from the hip" style of honesty here at Newsmax — and we have great respect for him.
Why? Because Dr. Blaylock:
- He accepts NO commissions or payment for any of the products he
- He takes NO money from the multi-billion dollar drug companies.
- He does NO medical "research" funded by Big Pharma, either.
- This way, he has NO conflict of interest.
Where else can you get that kind of integrity?

A Highly Respected Surgeon Finally Takes the Slant Out of Health Information
Before his retirement, Dr. Blaylock practiced "traditional" medicine for two and a half decades as a successful and highly respected neurosurgeon. So he knows the game the billion dollar drug companies play to inundate doctors with all sorts of drug propaganda.
Frankly, he became fed up with all the information the public wasn't getting regarding all the risks linked to medications they were taking. He didn't understand why more doctors couldn't tell you how to simply avoid chronic illnesses in the first place.
So, he decided to devote his time, energy, and expertise to writing about natural and healthy alternatives to taking care of your long-term health.
Each month in The Blaylock Wellness Report, Dr. Blaylock brings you the most up-to-date health research available. (He leaves nothing out — you get all the facts!)
And he shares recommendations for simple dietary solutions that will keep you in control of your own health, along with easy lifestyle changes and effective nutritional supplements.
You never have to worry this information has been slanted away from the truth in any way.
