YOU GOT IT WRONG - US Department of Veterans Affairs

The aim of this blog is to highlight persons in the media who tout the chemical imbalance theory as a fact. It's highly unprofessional and misleading to do so and this blog demands that any statements relating to the 'chemical imbalance' myth should either be backed up with supporting evidence or redacted.

Where possible, each person featured on this blog has been contacted via Twitter, email, and/or Facebook and asked to redact their statements or provide supporting evidence.

Once supporting evidence has been shown they will be removed from this blog. Moreover, if they redact their original statements they will also be removed from this blog.

As you will see from these lists, many of the authors are household names and influence those who follow them. This has to stop. The chemical imbalance line was created by the pharmaceutical industry, moreover, Eli Lilly, who launched the first of the SSRIs, Prozac.

Those featured on this list need to do their research.

Article  Clarke Carlisle has spelt it out: retiring from sport can be a traumatic loss


Quote Research on retired athletes has shown one of the most frequent experiences is a sense of emotional loss associated with separation from significant others, such as coaches and teammates. That, coupled with a possible reduction in exercise, can also add to increased depression levels – regular exercise is known to release feelgood chemicals such as neurotransmitters and endorphins which help reduce depression and anxiety. At the same time, stress in itself produces hormones which can lead to chemical imbalances with too little serotonin in the brain.”

Article  Is it a sin to be depressed?


Quote Neither is it a sin for you to seek treatment for a chemical imbalance in your brain. The Bible says that we are “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14)–and it’s true: Our bodies and minds are very complex. Although doctors can’t solve all our problems, we should be grateful that God has enabled them to understand more about our bodies and minds, and has given them new ways to overcome many of our problems. Don’t feel that you are somehow sinning by seeking treatment for your depression; it would be wrong for you not to seek treatment.

Article  The Role of Brain Chemistry in Depression


Quote In order for you to feel well emotionally it is important that your brain chemistry is in balance.  The neurotransmitters serotonin, norepinephrine, GABA, and dopamine, are the brain’s chemical messengers which are primarily responsible for your mental health and well-being. When these important brain chemicals are out of balance, depression, and many other symptoms, can result. One of the best places to begin when dealing with chemical imbalance in the brain and depression is to understand the tandem role of estrogen and serotonin.   A natural brain booster and anti-depressant, estrogen plays an enormous role in the production of and maintenance of serotonin in our brain.
