Overcoming Depression Without Medication - Keynote Speaker(NNOS Studios of Ohio)

There are some items we would just rather not talk about. We do not want other people to see that battle that is going on inside.
You know that pain and sadness that you have when you don't really feel loved, understood, or valued?

Do you know how there are times when you really feel like you have no aim or objective here?

Or how you'd just rather remain in bed than get up simply because there is absolutely nothing that excites you about the day?

I know for me there was nothing that enticed me...I didn't care about anything.

But one thing along the road let me catch a glimpse of hope and I slowly started to care. This triggered me to start off looking into depression. I wanted to figure out exactly what was going on in my brain and physique. What I located was fascinating.

I learned that if you trace back any one of our fears or limitations, they all branch from two primary fears:
1.)the fear of not getting loved
2.)the fear of not being great sufficient
These branches are answers to concerns we indirectly ask ourselves like, "Why am I not being loved" and then "how do I know im not loved?" Properly whenever we ask ourselves a question, whether or not directly or indirectly, our brain comes up with an answer.

The answers are typically based on one thing from our past, but they do not have to be. Most of the time, they are not the correct answers. For example, if you ask your self, "Why cannot I lose weight?" You might get an answer like, "Because you are a pig." And you will cease thinking. Now the answer is entirely incorrect, but your brain has to come up with answers to your questions.

Another example:
"How do I know i'm not being loved?" You may possibly get an answer like, "Simply because my wife/husband is not doing (whatever)."

The dilemma is that these answers, these branches, grow to be our beliefs and we focus on the last level of branches. By focusing on the answer our brain came up with, we are successfully kept from seeing the genuine concern.

But this is just the beginning. Beliefs set off a whole slew of other events inside our brain. As a result, we turn into chemically inbalanced, and usually resort to medication. There are mechanisms in our brain that are responsible for sustaining our existing set of beliefs. The mechanisms are not negative, they only perform with the material we feed them. If the beliefs we create and hold are negative, our results will be negative also.

Our objective is to trigger these mechanisms to function in our favor.

One of these mechanisms is the Reticular Activating Program. It is like a search engine for data that is relevant to our beliefs. It is what permits us to suddenly start noticing all the cars like the one we just purchased. The automobiles were often there and our eyes often saw them, but it wasn't portion of our searching program, so it was spit out as irrelevant instead of becoming sent to our conscious mind for recognition. It works the identical way with depression and any other case. Our brain only let's us see what it is programmed to look for.

The next part we require to reset is the Psycho-Cybernetic Mechanism(PCM). It is a safetly mechanism that keeps us in our programmed comfort zones. This can be an abusive relationship. It may be sickness or depression. Bear in mind, the brain works with the material it is fed...it is not biased to our desires or don't wants. When we step out of this pattern we're employed to, this comfort zone, the PCM sends a chemical into our body that causes doubt, fear, and wow...anxiety.

Attempting to manage our fears and anxieties is futile. Resetting the comfort zone, is the resolution.
