When someone is depressed, [doctors] assume that this is caused by a disturbance in your biochemistry, which must be related to some sort of genetic thing in your personality. What I would want to know is what has happened in that person’s past and their present that is disturbing their biochemistry and making them depressed? Our behaviour has an immediate and far-reaching effect on our chemical balance, but that question’s not asked. Even as you and I are sitting here discussing this, there are all sorts of changes happening in your neurochemistry and in your body – so it’s highly dynamic – Ivor Browne
Came across the work of Ivor Browne who quite frankly floats my boat.
Anyone interested in a doctor who doesn’t prescribe anti- depressants and sees meaning within the person ( through their energy – quantum physics tells us we are all energy) then get a copy of –
“The writings of Ivor Browne, Atrium”.
As a therapist it is helpful to know that the medical profession are open to alternative ways to deal with depression –
releasing energy through our relationships to our self, each other as people, communities and that personal spiritual connection to the universe- the original and ultimate of all energy.
