Wonder spice helps soothe even tough depression
You know the only thing that will make you more miserable than chronic depression?
Being treated for it.
And if you’re taking a prescription antidepressant right now, you know exactly what I’m talking about.
It’s bad enough that these meds take months to work (when they work at all). But they can also send your energy levels and sex life right into the toilet, and have even left people suicidal.
If you try to talk to your typical mainstream doc about the problems with your antidepressant, he’ll either change the dosage or try you on a different brand. And if you ask about drug-free treatments, he’ll probably just shrug his shoulders or give you an empty stare.
Well, you deserve better than that. And researchers have proven that there’s a safe and natural way to beat your depression without touching a prescription drug again.
And it all starts with a wonder supplement I’ve told you plenty about before – curcumin.
In the latest issue of Phytotherapy Research, an international team of scientists pored through six clinical trials on using curcumin to beat even major depression. And they found that curcumin was consistently effective at reducing even the worst depression symptoms.
You’ve heard me talk before about how I use curcumin, which is derived from the Indian spice turmeric, to help my patients suffering from inflammation and pain.
And, believe it or not, curcumin’s powerful anti-inflammatory properties are also probably what makes it so effective at relieving depression.
You see, inflammation is an under-appreciated cause of depression. In fact, that’s why people who eat well and exercise are less likely to be depressed – they tend to have less systemic inflammation.
If you’re depressed and are tired of the prescription pill merry-go-round, curcumin may be worth giving a shot. You can pick up supplements anywhere for just pennies a day.
