BrainMental Health is a passion for me, in terms of helping people heal.  I have many friends and family who are affected by Mental Illness and it is always a hard battle for both the sufferer and their loved ones watching them carry on.  Most readers know that I am Shannon Chung, editor of the Alive Health Blog, but I wanted to let those who don’t know … that I wish to do what I can to help spread the awareness that there is nothing to be ashamed of if you are suffering from a Mental Illness.  This blog has always had the intention of providing credible health information and I have always been available via email for any questions.  I am also in the Oakridge location on Thursdays from 11:00 to 5:00pm.  While this article does touch on products, it is not all about “buy this”.  Our goal is not to just “sell products” but to create awareness of health and to put people first.  Everyone must find the right treatment for them… we are all different, unique and that means that there sometimes is not a simple or quick solution.

Therefore I hope this article serves you well and I stand by our mission statement:  “Changing the world through healthy living, by putting you first.”

Firstly I wanted to share the following article by FORBES entitled 5 Common Myths About Depression:

With the tragic loss of Robin Williams to apparent suicide, a worldwide discussion about the effects of depression has begun. Untreated depression is the leading cause of suicide in the US, and suicide claims 34,000 lives in this country every year. Far too often those who would benefit from treatment don’t get it due to lack of knowledge and misconceptions about the illness. Below are five of the most common myths about depression, with links to resources for more information.

1. Depression is synonymous with sadness.

Many of Robin Williams’ acquaintances interviewed since his death have noted that they never saw him unhappy, yet he suffered from severe depression. According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), many of those suffering from depression do feel overwhelming sadness, but many don’t feel any specific emotion at all. A better description would be a feeling of emptiness and apathy. And since anxiety often accompanies depression, many feel a constant state of tension that persists for no apparent reason.

2. Depression is a sign of mental weakness.

Part of the stigma surrounding depression is that others will see it as a sign of weakness. Yet we don’t accuse someone suffering from heart disease or MS of being weak; we rightly acknowledge those as illnesses that affect a wide range of people. Depression is also an illness—more specifically, it’s a complex medical disorder that has biological, psychological and social dimensions. Plenty of otherwise “strong” people suffer from severe depression, and the consequences of not treating it are just as real and tragic as those of other debilitating diseases. An illness that affects the chemistry of the brain and nervous system is no less an illness than one that affects any other part of the body.

3. Depression is always situational.

While depression often does have a situational trigger like the loss of a loved one or divorce, the underlying condition does not need any particular event to surface. Depression is typically diagnosed when someone suffers from prolonged episodes (at least two weeks) of hopelessness, emptiness and lethargy that have no apparent cause. These periods can manifest inexplicably, even when life events seem generally positive. (This is another reason why depression and sadness are not synonymous.)

4. Depression symptoms are all in your head.

While it’s true that many depression symptoms are of the nature we normally associate with the “head” (dark emotion, tension, etc.), the condition frequently manifests all over the body. Common depression symptoms include indigestion, difficulty breathing, tightness in the chest, and general fatigue. Some patients also complain of persistent muscle aches.

5. If you are diagnosed with depression, you’ll be on antidepressants the rest of your life.

The ubiquity of antidepressant commercials and media coverage has had a backlash effect. Many people are fearful of being put on an antidepressant, even if they may benefit from one, because they think once you’re “hooked” you’ll never be able to stop. The reality is that not everyone benefits from antidepressants – by some estimates nearly 40% of those prescribed one will experience no benefits. Some people respond better to forms of psychotherapy, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), or a combination of medication and therapy.  Even someone who gets good results from an antidepressant can, with medical supervision, eventually taper off the med in many cases.

The bottom line: depression is a treatable illness. When left untreated, its effects can be devastating.

Neo40 Daily – 30 Lozenges

Categories: Fatigue, Heart Health, Hot products

Help naturally restore and replenish your body’s nitric oxide levels with the patented Neo40 daily formula. It is clinically researched to help relax arterial walls and support healthy circulation. Healthy circulation is associated with numerous health benefits, including support for:

  • Healthy blood pressure,
  • Healthy triglyceride levels,
  • Overall arterial health,
  • May help sexual performance.

A breakthrough in nitric oxide delivery

Nitric oxide (N-O) is one of the body’s most essential molecules. But because it has such a short life span, it can be untitleddifficult to keep nitric oxide at optimum levels in the body—especially for people over the age of 40.

Our patented formula represents a breakthrough in N-O delivery compared to standard L-Arginine supplements or dietary choices. It helps boost the efficiency of the body’s nitrate pathway so that more nitric oxide is available when and where it’s needed. Each lozenge contains 420mg of our patented nitric oxide blend, with added vitamin C and B12. Neo40 daily has been the subject of clinical research that supports its effectiveness to increase N-O and support healthy circulation.

Neo40 daily is based on the work of renowned nitric oxide researcher Dr. Nathan Bryan from the University of Texas. His ongoing research on the effects of nitric oxide on circulation and health inspired the formulation of Neo40 daily, created especially for health conscious people who prefer a high quality product backed by science and clinical trials.

Five reasons why Neo40 daily is superior to other N-O supplements

Neo40 daily works fast

Neo40 daily is the only nitric oxide supplement that works begins to work almost immediately. As the lozenge dissolves on your tongue, nitric oxide is produced almost instantly.

Neo40 daily is clinically researched

Neo40 daily has been the subject of clinical research and studies. Our team of scientists and researchers continue conduct ongoing research to evaluate its numerous beneficial effects.

Neo40 daily is more effective than L-Arginine for many people

Studies show that if you are over 40 or have compromised endothelial function, L-Arginine is unlikely to work for you. Neo40 Daily works through different pathways that research indicates increases N-O more efficiently than L-Arginine.

Neo40 daily is based on natural plant-based ingredients

Our proprietary blend gets its efficacy from safe, natural botanicals like beetroot powder and hawthorn berry extract. Also included are vitamins C and B12, which are designed to work synergistically with the botanicals to optimize effectiveness.

Nictric Oxide is Essential

Nitric oxide (N-O) is crucial for optimum health. It helps to relax the arteries and improve blood circulation, thus regulating healthy blood pressure and increasing nutrient and oxygen delivery to every system, organ, and tissue in the body. N-O helps to regulate blood flow to the cells and ensure nutrient absorption; it also provides immune support.

Nitric Oxide Is Vital For A
Healthy Cardiovascular System

 

In the field of medical research, N-O is being researched for its many benefits, including helping the body:

  • Maintain healthy blood pressure
  • Support normal triglyceride levels
  • Enhance healthy circulation
  • Promote artery health
  • Support cardiovascular and heart health
  • Improve exercise endurance and performance
  • Support sexual performance via improved circulation

Researchers continue to explore the health benefits of nitric oxide. While in the preliminary stages, researchers are currently investigating its potential role in bone health, cognitive function, pregnancy, and more.
