Yes. I am so glad someone is addressing the nutritional problems so much of the population is being subjected to by the U.S. diet, which is weakening people’s capabilities on all levels. Wake up everybody! We are all being affected. There is a serious depletion by the destruction of our foods, particularly the genetic modification, and the poisonous chemicals applied to the food as it is grown. It is no wonder many countries will not purchase our foods, they have more sense and concern for their people. I am one who will not take part in this process. Which is a huge challenge, but a worthy one. I remember having better quality, tastier food,and feeling invigorated by eating, this isn’t true nowadays. So, please take heed by these well meant warnings that are offered to help others.

Thank you for the laughs and for your moving dramatic performances, Robin Williams. I’m sorry you’re gone.

We shouldn’t remember Robin on how or why he died but how he lived. He was a wonderful father, husband, friend, comedian and actor who brought joy and laughter to alot of people. R.I.P. Robin. You are finally at peace. You are and will be missed. For those negative comments please keep them to yourself. Think of how they would affect his loved ones.

I normally do not respond to someonw who is insulting, but if you are relying on a mainstream healthcare professional, you’ll be depressed until you die.

Sure, depression is a brain disorder, the same as a blocked coronary artery is a heart disorder. But no one who’s about to have a heart attack sees a psychologist.

Don’t take it from me, take it from Dr. Carolyn Dean, who is an industry expert on minerals that, when deficient, can lead to just about every known disease people can suffer from.

I am enclosing an excerpt from an email that I got from her just today.

When you get better, please do come back and apologize!



If you’ve never been severely depressed, you have no way of knowing what it is really like. I was thrown into sudden menopause in New York when the director of our AIDS study died leaving me in charge and my Ontario Medical Board decided to attack me (in absentia). I was under a lot of stress so all my hormones crashed and I suffered severe hot flashes. But even worse, in the 30 seconds before a hot flash I would have an utter sense of impending doom that convinced me that life was not worth living. The moment the hot flash began the doom lifted completely. That’s when I knew without a doubt that depression can be biochemical. I also realized that some people have that impending doom feeling all the time, not just for 30 seconds.

Allopathic medicine thinks that depression is biochemical too but instead of using minerals and vitamins to treat the biochemistry, they use drugs that block or enhance brain neurotransmitters and hope for the best. The best these drugs can do is about 40% relief of mild to moderate depression. That’s less than the placebo effect. Also, these drugs can be very toxic. The most common medications for depression contain fluoride molecules that bind up magnesium and make it unavailable.

You can google my name and depression, I’ve written a lot about it and I know that people can recover from it without drugs. Here are a few examples:

“I have experienced the magnesium miracle, for 2 weeks and I feel better than I have ever felt before (I’m 42, male). I wouldn’t have believed it was possible with a simple mineral supplement. Addictions, depression, tinnitus, headaches, chronic fatigue and many more symptoms were improved by greater than 95% in 2 weeks!”

“Thank you for your continued posts. Your advice on magnesium has helped me conquer migraines and depression.”

“I was taking St John’s Wort for general bad/angry mood swings and mild depression, and Feverfew for headaches. A few weeks ago I realized that I haven’t been feeling short tempered: things that I know would have made me crazy and frustrated were seeming like no big deal. I’m smiling more, and have better focus and general good feeling all around! I’m very certain that the ReMag has helped enormously in this.”

samantha!!!!! Depression is a BRAIN disorder not from the food you consume!!! Sure there are bad foods/ lifestyle that can contribute but its a DISEASE!!!!!!! And Psychologists are phd’s that actually try to work out your problems through coginitive behavior therapy. Psychiatrists are the ones that hand out medications. I have been dealing with depression/anxiety/panic disorders for 10 years. Your really sound like the most uneducated person in the world

Robin Williams looked extremely old beyond his years, typical for anyone who is chronically malnourished, unable to absorb the food he eats, even if such food is nutritious, a consequence of perpetual inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract, damaged beyond repair by trans fat, refined sugars, artificial sweeteners, MSG, alcohol, acidic food — pretty much the notorious Western Diet and especially frankenfood, indicated by depression, poor attitude, heart disease, high-blood pressure, high cholesterol, constipation, E.D., low desire, IBS (diseases can number in the hundreds), and the most obvious indicator, the swollen abdomen, which used to be a given in old age but now has creeped all the way down to teenagers. Even athletes suffer, if not from a protruding abdomen, then from a sweet tooth and alcohol consumption, because refined sugars and alcohol are easily absorbed, even by a damaged G.I. system.

Another usual suspect is corporate farming, its products virtually depleted of minerals and nutrition. As a consequence, for example, 80 percent of the population is now deficient in magnesium, a vital co-factor in hundreds of cell, organ and brain functions. When you consider there are many other mineral deficiencies, it’s only by miracle that so many are still alive.

A more ominous suspect is the healthcare system, itself. Magnesium deficiency is indicated by depression, however, doctors prescribe, more by rule, not magnesium supplements but a drug such as Paxil, and most drugs further deplete magnesium from the body. A person sick today is better off staying away from the healthcare system altogether.

If psychologists ever have to admit that depression is a food-borne illness, well, they’d be out of jobs, wouldn’t they? And so would a large segment of the healthcare industry, especially Big Pharma.

But by far the worst usual suspects, the ones most responsible for inflamed digestive systems and malnorishment, are the psycopaths in the mainstream media, which used to be the Fourth Estate but no longer is, who’ve, by way of silence, thrown in with corporate bottom lines and stock holders — anything to make a buck at the expense of the health of children, families and adults.

Robin Williams would still be alive today had the press taken up arms fifty years ago against lethal corpoate greed and profit, as had the Surgeon General first gone after lethal tobacco in the Sixties.

In the same way there are dummies who continue to smoke today, most of the population continues to feast on the Western diet, completely oblivious to the contamination that makes them sicker today and older tomorrow, believing the pie today is the same one made by their grandmothers two generations ago.

Nostalgia is an indicator of our bankrupt environment and the food in it, a psychological mechanism that struggles to compensate for unhappiness and depression, but rarely is the desired effect ever achieved because addiction to Western lifestyle paralyzes the conscience from ever regaining the health and well being required for true happiness.

And what are your professional qualifications? Everyone’s an armchair psychologist/dietician/doctor these days.

Dear Grounded Traveller:
Instead of being a total naysayer and using ad hominem arguments, why not concentrate on the truths contained in the article?

I am making a copy of the above comment because the TRUTH feels so good when I read it. This person nailed it. It all starts in the gut. Inflammation is the source of so many diseases.

OH MY, I can’t believe what I’m reading!! Samantha, I see you didn’t include your education anywhere! You have to be brainwashed to believe the things you wrote! I do know one thing about you, you know how to use the copy/paste buttons! Hahahaha!

I thought this area was to leave a reply about the tragedy that occurred when Mr. Williams left this world to the Williams family, I am very sorry you lost such a wonderful person! It truly was a sad day indeed. I have bouts of depression also and it’s difficult for me to understand this illness. I used to relate my depression with the lack of money to get the help I need. Then with Mr. Williams suicide/depression it made me think, he had the means to get help, he didn’t have to worry about paying his bills etc. he could afford anything and everything. I did realize people can be depresses for different reasons and for no reason. It is due to the lack of something in the brain. I’ve been praying daily for the family of Robin Williams especially his children. We’ll never know exactly why things happened how they did. Just remember you were loved tremendously, through his entire being and in no way were you any part of his actions. Eternal rest grant onto him, oh Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him. Rest In Heaven Robin Williams and please tell my dad and brothers a few jokes.
