A few years back, Harvard conducted a study to reiterate what many in the psych professionals already know – Americans are addicted to anti-depression meds. We (though not myself) pop Prozac, Celexa, Effexor, Paxil, and Zoloft pills like they are candy in an attempt to boost mood and feel better. The increase in sales of anti-depressants is up a startling 400%. This pill-popping became the norm, even though clinical studies suggest there are numerous natural remedies that can help us feel better, without the pricey and life altering side-effects that many of these drugs can cause.
Indeed, many individuals can find relief from depression with simple lifestyle changes, even just dietary changes. Even the spice turmeric has been shown to treat depression better than Prozac, one of the best selling, yet least effective anti-depressants of all time. Phytotherapy Research said that not only is turmeric effective at treating depression, but it is likely more effective than some of the most common anti-depressant drugs currently on the market.
Additionally, there are several things people can do to boost their happiness levels without ever popping a pharmaceutical pill. Here are 5 potential solutions:
5 Ways to Boost Happiness Naturally
- 1. The Easiest Way to Feel Better, by Far, is to Exercise. In study after study, scientists have proven that just moving your body makes you feel better. Exercise boosts dopamine levels and oxytocin levels – two hormones responsible for happiness and love; one dampens pain, the other makes you feel ‘bliss.’ Why take a pharmaceutical drug that might cause you to have migraines or become suicidal when you can just spend 10 minutes throwing a Frisbee with your dog, or walking along a path in nature? (Spending time with your dog and being in nature also happen to boost your happiness hormones, so you can get two for the price of one!)
- 2. Spend Time with Friends and Family – Spending time with friends and family or even interacting with social media friends across cyber space can boost levels of seratonin and oxytocin, and even help you to live longer. We are social creatures. If you’ve been hiding in your house and not interacting with other people, consider volunteering, attending a social gathering, or even going on a date. Your better mood is waiting on this action.
- 3. Get Outside – New York-based naturopathic doctor Alan Logan, co-author (with Dr. Eva Selhub, an internal medicine physician) of Your Brain on Nature: The Science of Nature’s Influence on Your Health, Happiness and Vitality, believes that the energy from mountains, trees, plants and water can improve your sleep and mental outlook. You don’t have to abandon city life, but try to find trees, natural reservoirs of water, birds, flowers – anything that is natural. Your health and happiness depends on it.
- 4. Sleep More – Our circadian rhythms are absolutely vital to good mental health. Circadian cycles are our bodies’ way of regulating a host of hormones that are responsible for everything from keeping us alert when we should be to helping us to relax in stressful situations. Lost sleep can even age your brain significantly over time, while more sleep will improve mood just about every single time. Try it. You look tired.
- 5. Improve Your Diet – Foods for depression can be much more effective than a bottle of junk made by Big Pharma. That saying – you are what you eat – is true. If you eat tons of refined sugar, unhealthy fats, and no ‘living foods’ like organic fruits and vegetables, you will look and feel…not so great! You need high levels of B12, found in fish and eggs, to increase neuronal communication between ‘good’ brain pathways, fiber to avoid spikes in blood sugar and insulin which can lead to depression, folate to keep your brain bathed in cerebrospinal fluid, iron to make sure your blood can transport oxygen, iodine to lower depression and increase memory, calcium to lower anxiety and curb depression, and much more. Try leafy greens, nuts, and foods high in Omega 3s to get an immediate happiness boost.

its impossible for drugs to cause behavior, blaming drugs on any behavior is only an excuse to try to make you not look guilty, or to get $ out of the drug company based on damage the drug user caused.
according to mental “health” workers, tyrants and most demonrats, all non gov is mentally unfit/ill.
those labeled “mentally ill” aren’t more likely to commit crime.
a criminal is about 5-25 times more likely to be someone that isn’t “labeled face to face as mentally ill by a paid mental health worker”
reportedly about 4%of crime is associated with, but not caused by the label “mental illness”, most of those are pety crimes.
most people labeled mentally ill or who take phyc drugs arnt violent or aggressive.
those labeled mentally ill are more likely to be a victim of crime than commit crime.
mental health workers are much more likely to commit crime and violence than those they label mentally ill and non gov.
gov commits much more violence and mass murder/torture than non gov.
sometimes people are coerced into committing crime/violence, this is a common reason for current drafted soldiers around the world and was for drafted nazis. mental health workers or gov might have coerced easy prey on phyc drugs to commit violence, to use as an excuse to push life long torture in mental chamber for innocents to pretend to prevent violence, and to push gun control.
sometimes people trapped in bad env, without other ways to improve it, try to remove people they dont like.
sometimes people take drugs before they do bad act, to use as excuse to blame the drugs cuz they think they wont get in as much trouble if they shift blame away from themself.
sometimes people on drugs, r encouraged to act bad, cuz they think they can use drugs as excuse to not get in as much or any trouble for it, by blaming the drugs.
in some social groups of idiots, some people go along with the blame the drugs story, and let people off the hook for behaving bad while on drugs.
sometimes people are falsely labeled violent or aggressive when they were actually just resisting or defending themself. mental workers sometimes provoke their victims into defending themself, then call defending yourself, resisting or trying to leave, as violence, aggression, to use as an excuse to lock up, restrain, and drug more, so they can bill tax payers up to 16,000 tax dollars per day per restraint victim
mental health workers/thought police are mega rich super brutal fraudsters who torture for satanic ritual, sadist fetish, $, to punish and intimidate political opponents, gov criticizers, easy targets. totalitarian. 50% of $ spent on social security, medicare, medicaid is spent on “mental health”. victims are tortured/threatened w abuse/neglect(and the poor that gov stole their other options to live,are paid)into pretending to like the treatment. nsa surveillance.
almost all if not all mental health workers say everyone in the entire world will always have a mental disorder/”illness”(including animals) except sometimes exclude them self. every emotion and action including happiness they labeled a mental disorder.
1 out of 5 americans wrongly labeled mentally ill face to face by mental health workers-often against their will, its not more because their not powerful enough to kidnap everyone.
$50/5min phyCIAtrist. $100/hr counselor $1000+/m for drugs. $2000+/day in mental institution. 50% of $ spent on social security, medicare, medicaid(these are 100%tax funded) is spent on “mental health”
mental illness/health never exists, its always been fraud and slang/sarcasm made up by thought police.
mental disorder is in the eye of/an individual opinion of the controller. disorder=disobey order. torture is a form of treatment. mental health poison/tranqs are more dangerous for your physical health than meth. 36,000 die from phyc drugs/y. about 8500people are murdered by firearm.
never discriminate against someone for being labeled mental disorder/ill, they are no different than anyone else besides the label . don’t call people mentally ill
youtube: orwell summary. youtube: state o’ masochist. watch futurama insane in the mainframe.
drugs dont increase risk of suicidal thoughts. most people on phyc drugs are coerced or forced by mental workers and gov, that increases risk of suicidal thoughts.
people on phyc drugs that commit suicide, many times is actually mental workers murdering them pretending its suicide, or they commit suicide to escape being constantly abused and threatened by mental workers and gov, or mental workers coerce them into overdosing. most people on phyc drugs are easy prey, poor, and live in a bad environment, thus more likely to want to escape their bad situation. if you were trapped, constantly coerced to poison yourself with drugs that made you feel horrible, forced to receive abusive painful damaging treatments, and each time you try to escape you get punished worse, what would you do?
People who are sad/upset to begin with, going on drugs/tranqs that partially-paralyze them, cause them pain, and make them weak and slow, not surprising if they become more sad/upset.
youngsters are bullied in school by government forcing and coercing them to obey and attend dumbing down day prison. Government is the biggest bully. It’s normal for people to be sad or upset if they are constantly threatened, imprisoned, stolen from and often physically abused/poisoned by government.
mental illness=there is no such thing as mental illness. no one is mentally ill. its a slang word and not proper english. its not a medical disease, illness, health problem, or brain disorder. its a lie.
if “mental illness” was a brain disorder/disease, brain chemical imbalance, or neurological, it wouldnt be mental, it would be physical
no behavior or misbehavior can be a disease or illness
the only way to tell if “mental illness” existed would be physical test. there is no physical test to prove mental illness is possible.
if there was physical proof of mental illness, it wouldnt be mental illness, it would be physical
its impossible to prove mental illness exists cuz it doesnt exist no scientific evidence of mental illness. no mental illness has ever been proven to exist
mental health workers admit there is no test available to test/asses brain chemical status. there no test or scientific evidence to show a brain chemical imbalance related to any mental disorder because its impossible. there is no such thing as a natural brain chemical imbalance. those who have poison or phyc drugs in their system could enter the brain causing a brain chemical imbalance
the natural chemicals in the brain are constantly changing, and vary from person to person.
brain scans of thousands+ of different types of people(including criminals, artists, musicians…) proves their is no brain pattern associated with certain behavior, each person’s brain is different and constantly changing.
mental=mind. whatever a person chooses to do/ free will. mind=soul. a person’s mind is what makes a person who they are. the mind leaves the body when the body dies.
a person can never be out of their mind or out of control of their mind, because a person is their mind, to loose their mind would be to loose themself, thus they would cease to exist
its impossible for a person to loose their soul/freewill, if they did they would no longer be themself.
mind control= only an individual can control their own mind. mind controls brain, brain can never control mind. altering brain wont alter mind, it can alter physical ability.
if someone else controls your mind, your no longer in control of your mind, your mind is no longer your mind, your no longer you, and their not controlling your mind, and the only way to know would be to control your body.
the only thing everyone always has absolute exclusive control over is their mind, thoughts and choices. its impossible for a person to be “completely unable to control themself” or loose control of their mind
it will always be impossible for anything to control another person’s mind or decisions. it is possible to control someone’s body by moving it with physical force.
being on, going off, or not being on drugs, cant cause or prevent violence, crime, happiness, anger, sadness, fear, sanity, insanity, emotions, or behavior. a person makes themself happy or violent.
drugs and electric shock cant override/take away a person’s free will, and arnt a mind-control or mind-altering device
people do what they want, people control themselves drugs dont have free will, people do. drugs arnt alive, people are.
drugs cant control the behavior a person chooses to do. drugs cant make anyone choose to do anything. drugs arnt to blame for anyone’s choices.
drugs will never be able to control a person’s thoughts or decisions. people control there thoughts and decisions people make decisions, drugs cant make decisions for people
its impossible for drugs, electronic devices, brain implants, or electric shock to control thought, voluntary body movement, or behavior.
its impossible for a drug to cause behavior or alter someone’s mood. behavior and mood/emotion are choices a person makes.
drugs cant control people like robots. if something could control someone’s body like a robot, it can never control the mind. people arnt mindless robots that drugs/chemicals or electricity can program.
drugs effect the physical body, not a person’s thoughts.
drugs can sometimes control a person’s physical body, by causing partial or full paralyzation, death, physical illness, pain, pain relief, curing physical health problems, or making them physically healthy.
illness= physical/ biological illness
disease=physical/biological disease. a predictable group of symptoms and the cause of the symptoms or an understanding of their physiology(function) must be proven and established
chills and fever are symptoms. malaria and typhoid are diseases. diseases are proven to exist by objective evidence and physical test.
health= physical, not mental
diagnosis= a physically proven diagnosis of a physical/biological health problem. labeling someone mentally ill isnt diagnosis, it’s stigmatization
phyciatrists arnt drs. if they were than so would every meth dealer.
dr/medical professional= someone that trys to repair physical/ biological health problems.
patient= someone that is being treated for physical/ biological health problems
there is no such thing as a phyciatric/mental patient mental health workers refer to everyone including all humans and animals on earth as a mental/ phyciatric patient
clinic- a room/office where drs screen/test for, or treat physical/biological health problems. their is no such thing as a “mental clinic”. there is no such thing as “clinically insane”
treatment- how someone is treated. a person can be treated good or bad. torture is bad treatment.
medication= a drug that is for repairing physical/ biological health problems including pain
“phyciatric/psychotropic/phyc medication/ med” is not medication. if it was then cyanide and mustard gas would be too.
all phyc drugs have side effects that include death, coma, and serious physical problems, are more dangerous than meth, heroin, narcotics, and prescription pain killer abuse, and have no positive effects.
phyc drugs are legalized drug abuse. phyc drugs can cause people to be tired, lethargic, and weak, thats how the evil control freaks want them.
phyc/mental health drugs are debilitating and often used as weaponized tranqs and chemical restraints. sedation makes people sedated. tranquilizers make people tranquil
scientific studies compared phyc-drugs w placebos and concluded phyc-drugs were ineffective. no scientific evidence of the effectiveness of phyc-treatments. no proof phyc drugs improve behavior.
mental health workers admit their is no scientific evidence to verify effectiveness of phyc drugs
scientific studies concluded exercise, eating healthy, and socializing work much better to make people happy than drugs do
reportedly LSD and PCP used to be falsely put out as a safe effective phyc drug with no bad side effects
prozac 94% fluoride rat poison 100%fluoride fluoride is haz waste from business, illegal to dump in env or landfill, they pay to put it in public water supply w/o public’s consent.
nazis put fluoride in the water to make people weak and dum so their easier to control.
30,000 die from gun/y(12,669 homicide, 17,331 suicide) reportedly according to FBI
36,000 die from phyc drugs/y. every month 3000 people die from phyc drugs
100mil world wide on phyc drugs. 9mil us school children on phyc drugs
90% of riddilin is consumed by school children. methal fenidate/riddlin used to chemically restrain “ADHD” children
selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors(SSRI) dont control mood
they wuld be much happier being given $1000, than a $1000 torture treatment or $1000 worth of tranqs.
according to almost all if not all phyciatrists, counselors, psychologists, and mental health workers, every human and animal is mentally ill/disturbed/deranged/disabled/impaired/unstable/deluded/ emotionally disturbed/ has a mental disorder/syndrome/issue/problem/ mental health problem/challenge/ insane, except mental health workers exclude themself and the very rich and powerful sometimes.
they call happiness, every emotion, thought, and action, the act of being alive, being social, anti social behavior, fear/anxiety/stress, anger, sadness/depression, bi-polar(mood swing/ sometimes your happy, sometimes your sad/angry/scared, being a political dissident, gov critics, not conforming to the norm, wanting to be unique, doing an unwanted behavior, defending yourself, wanting to exercise, moving, being poor, disagreeing w/ them, or not submitting, a mental illness/disease.
schizophrenic= a person that hallucinates only the individual that hallucinates can know if they are hallucinating because no one can see someone else’s hallucinations
paranoid= very worried
they make up fake “diagnosis” and call it mental illness= autism(anti-social, sometimes doesnt conform to norm), aspberger’s(milder than autism), attention deficit disorder/ADD(doesnt pay attention to the evil control freak), attention deficit hyperactive disorder ADHD(same as add but more hyper/energetic, its good and healthy to be hyper/energetic or else you get fat, weak, sick, and dum. evil control freaks dont want their victims energetic/hyper), turrets(blurting out inappropriate language and/or twitching alot(uncontrolled twitching/shakeing is tardive dyskinesia often caused by phyc drugs and brain damaging phyc treatments)), post traumatic stress disorder/PTSD(being fearful based on past events), ODD(opposition defiant disorder)anyone who disobeys. everyone has the right to oppose and defy evil. disorder=disobey order. pbafacts.com is fraud
“calm down/ relax”=sedentary tired lazy lethargic unhealthy partially-paralyzed slow. evil sadists dont want their victims to be energetic or to move, they want them weak so their easier to control.
1 out of 5 (20%) americans falsely face to face “diagnosed” mentally ill/phyc patient by a mental health worker.
the only reason its not near 100% is because there isnt enough mental health workers to do that and their not powerful enough to force everyone into their building.
mental health workers lie and claim they need more funding because not enough people are able to see counselors and phyciatrists, actually its very easy for anyone to see them and gov will (and shouldnt) fund it if they cant afford it, almost all people that see mental health workers dont want to and are forced or coerced to.
almost all if not all people get labeled mentally ill the first time they go to counseling
people dont need insurance to be “diagnosed” mentally ill, as gov pays for those w/o insurance w/o first filling out paper work
ordinary people can be labeled mentally ill and put into a data base w/o ever seeing a mental health worker, w/o their knowledge, and w/o insurance
real drs can also “diagnosis” any patient as mentally ill anytime for any or no reason, w or w/o the patients knowledge
people are often “diagnosed” mentally ill against their will
they put public ads on tv calling ghandi, lincon, and others mentally ill. and calling mental illness a potentially fatal biological disease, almost everyone knows that an obvious lie.
they continually make up new fraudulent “illnesses”, lying claiming they have evidence when they dont, paying off cops and regulators, and making up all types of lies.
“mental illness” is in the eye of the controller/ mental health workers.
just being told you are something doesnt make it true. just because someone is labeled as something, doesnt make it true.
people directly labeled face to face by a mental health worker as mentally ill are no different than those that arnt, besides the labeling
never discriminate against someone based on them being labeled as mentally ill. never put mentally ill into a separate group.
never call anyone mentally ill/ mentally unstable or others might discriminate against them, lock them up, and poison them based only on your words.
if a person chose to do something you dislike, call them bad, very/extremely bad, mean, wrong, cruel, horrible, horrific, disgusting, nasty, naughty, rude, immoral, unethical, inhumane, angry, fearful, dum, or disobedient, dont call them mentally ill
if someone is sad, call them sad, dont call them mentally ill
mental health workers want to make and keep people mentally ill, misdiagnosis people as mentally ill, sell as many of the most expensive unnecessary mental health treatments, drugs, and sessions to everyone including animals, and/or sadisticly offensively abuse people and animals. they often use lies, tricks, deception, force, threats, violence, and criminal means to get $. they say everyone(except mental health workers) is and will always be mentally ill, will always need to buy drugs, treatments, and counseling sessions for the rest of their lives, lying claiming drugs will fix mental illness when it doesnt, lying to people telling them their sad, antisocial, or suicidal… when their not, trying to make people think their mentally ill, trying to provoke people to behave oddly or inappropriately to make an excuse to be more forceful, provoking their victims into defending themself, then call defending yourself, resisting or trying to leave, as violence, aggression, to use as an excuse to lock up, restrain, and drug more, so they can bill tax payers up to 16,000 tax dollars per day per restraint victim. acting like their smarter, better, and superior to the “mentally ill”, acting like their there to help the mentally ill. they especially prey on children, the elderly, and the poor.
$50/5min phyCIAtrist. $100/hr counselor $1000+/m for drugs. $2000+/day in mental institution. plus many other very expensive treatments. most of this is at the cost of the tax-payer.
reportedly about 50% of $ spent on social security, medicare, medicaid is spent on “mental health”
“committing/commitment/institutionalizing/emergency detaining/preventative detaining”=illegal arrest/imprisonment/kidnap/abduction and poison/chemically restrain, and abuse/torture of innocent victims
mental institution/ “mental hospital”/ phyc ward/ loony bin/ insane asylum/ shrink=torture chamber
mental health workers painfully torture innocent victims with: poison gas shots and pills, electric shock, electrocution, electric chairs, electric shock or chemical implants, locked in ice baths sometimes for months or until you die, tightly strapped down to tables, chained inside cage, locked in padded rooms, restraint jackets, paralyzation, surgery, mutilation, dissections, lobotomies, experiments, murder,
abuse, and misuse “mental hygiene laws” in the false name of “helping”, “giving care” or “fixing mental illness”, they lie and say “the recipient wanted it”
people that tell the truth about being tortured by mental health workers are sometimes then labeled by the mental health workers as having “false memory syndrome”
sometimes people “diagnosed” as mentally ill pretend to have a mental disorder, or sometimes drug takers lie and say the drug helps them be happier or make better choices or “calm them down, a.k.a make them weak, slow, tired, lethargic, and lazy”, so they can get special privileges, benefits like:
-not having to do as much as other students in school.
-forced or threatened into it. they may have been abused or tortured by the drug dealers, mental health workers, and threatened with kidnap, abuse, or torture if they dont take drugs, lie about needing, wanting drugs, “mental health treatments”, or obey. so the drug dealers, mental health workers can get insurance money and, or to sadisticly punish.
-threatened with neglect if they dont get money from gov social security that gives money and health insurance to people that claim to need syke drugs or claim to be mentally ill, mentally disabled(it rewards people for being mentally ill and taking drugs, and rewards drug dealers and social workers for often using abusive and deceptive practices to get money) , or to get into low income housing or gov-subsidized benefits. because they are dependent on that money to live with out other options, desperate, have been abused and neglected by society, have no where else to get their needs. gov stole, banned their opportunity for independence, legal jobs, and charity with suppressive laws, taxes, regulations, and breaks up support groups, to make them forced dependent customers.
reportedly about 4%of crime is associated with, but not caused by the label “mental illness”, and the non “mentally ill” are 25times more likely to commit a crime.
a criminal is about 5times more likely to be someone that isnt “labeled face to face as mentally ill by a paid mental health worker”
most people labeled mentally ill arnt violent or aggressive.
having a mental disorder doesnt pre-dispose someone to commit crime, and doesnt make them more likely to commit crime
those labeled mentally ill are more likely to be a victim of crime than commit crime.
mental health workers are much more likely to commit crime than those labeled mentally ill
mental disorder isnt a crime. illegal to arrest/lock up/kidnap, fine/steal from, or ban weapons from people for being mentally ill/disturbed
immediately end all gov-funding to “mental health industry, phyc drugs, phyciatrists, counselors”
phyc drug dealers, phyCIAtrists, “mental health workers”, and most psychologists, psychoanalysts, counselors, mental/phyco therapists, and social workers, should be fired, loose their license, shut down, charged with fraud, and owe all customers a refund.
