Healing Depression


Isaiah 61:1-3 KJVer - 1The (Holy) Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good tidings  to the meek; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives & the opening of the prison to them that are bound; 2to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord & the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
to appoint to them that mourn in Zion, to give to them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the (evil) SPIRIT of HEAVINESS; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He might be glorified.

Burt, Arthur - Round the World in 88 Years - www.arthurburt.com - Chapter 14 Far & Away 
"In Montego Bay, Jamaica, the brethren there brought a woman to me who was suffering from deep depression.  She was taking heavy does of medicine & ask me to pray for her. 
I said, 'No...Depression is not some-thing cured by tablets or prayer...
If you are a child of God, depression is a loss of the presence of God,
& if you've lost the Presence, you need to have Truth where you've lost it'...(2nd Kings 6:6)...
If you have lost your ax-head at the last church, you'll not find it at this (other) church (looking for a cure). 
You'll find it where you lost it. (Look for when/why the problem began - the root.)  If you are guilty of unforgiveness, criticism, backbiting or judgment, you are not going to put that right with tablets. 
is a sign of loss of the Presence (peace) of God. 
The only way to find the (His) Presence, is to find out where you lost it & what caused you to lose it. 
It is a divine principle that you have to own where your are, before you can disown it." 
(IT: The fact that you are a sinner/hater feel superior/angry/unforgiving/judgmental OR have an original unloving complaint/attitude.  Once you recognize the thing that God hates, then you can agree/own it. 
Then confess/repent-of/evict/reject/ renounce/disown/turn/flee-from it, in the name & power of Jesus Christ.  There is a movie called Back to the Future, which is an apt title/idea here. 
When we pull out the dandelion by its root, we get rid of future seeds that float afar & cause havoc to landscapers. 
Popping off dandelion heads will NOT solve the real problem.  It is only a temporary fix. 
Fixing symptoms do not cure a disease at it's spiritual/physical root. 
Meds for the most part cure the symptoms & NOT the disease. 
A good example is psychiatric medicine.  Doctors rarely know what causes a majority of mental illness.)

Mary Jo Clouse - 6 Keys to Unlock the Chains of Depression or http://tundemide.blogspot.com/2013/07/break-darkness-of-depression.html editorial - "When you receive Jesus as your Lord & Savior you receive His cleansing blood, which contains His DNA.  This DNA is 'the blueprint of your potential.' The blood of Jesus enables you to fulfill the destiny & purpose God has for your life.  However, in your natural blood line you have family iniquities, or 'bends in your nature,' that come from repeated sin patterns or learned behavior patterns in your own, or a relative's, life.
These bends can be toward good health or poor health, sound mind or depression. 
Suppose you have an uncle who is always depressed around the holidays.
If his pattern of behavior is not broken, it can become a family trait. Instead of rising above this family iniquity, you may develop a help-less attitude that leads to hopelessness & discouragement. You may begin to think you can never shake the "weakness" in your family.  Remember: The devil's job is to steal, kill & destroy.
What better way to destroy someone than to assign an army of demons who are familiar with your blood line iniquities? This army of evil spirits is an assignment from Satan to destroy the plan and purpose God has for you...
I bought a book entitled Healing Through the Name of Jesus. I began to read it & to study and meditate on the Word of God. I continued to take Valium but gradually cut down on the dose. I came to believe Jesus was my answer.  One Scripture passage in particular that I regularly meditated on is Psalm 103:1-6:
Bless the Lord, O my soul.  All that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, & forget not all His benefits: who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from destruction, who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies, who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's. The Lord executes righteousness & justice for all who are oppressed
.  This passage gave me great encouragement because I realized that, though I was oppressed by the devil, the Lord was going to "execute justice" (v. 6) against my enemy.
As I persisted in studying the Word, I developed an increased desire to be free from both the iniquity of depression & my dependency on drugs. I began to trust God to heal me.  1 revelation that helped me along the road to recovery was that my soul, or my flesh, which consisted of my mind, will & emotions, was at enmity with God (Romans 8:7). In order for me to be completely whole, my soul had to come in line with God's will for me.
Otherwise, I was fighting a losing battle: My mind was telling me I needed the Valium.
My emotions were trying to convince me that without drugs I couldn't function. 
My will was at the mercy of my mind & emotions...The only way to stop this vicious cycle was to:
1.Renew my mind through the Word. As I did this, the mood swings became less frequent. 
When they did come they were not as intense or long-lasting. Also, my faith for healing increased.
2.Make Jesus Lord over my emotions.
I began to encourage myself by quoting God's Word so that what I felt became subject to what I knew to be true. God's Word said that God would redeem my life from destruction.  I believed it.
3.Set my will to come in line with God's will.
God did not want me to be oppressed or to be dependent on drugs;.
He wanted me to be free from iniquity, healed of all disease and renewed like the eagle.
I realized that if He was big enough to save me from sin, He was powerful enough to deliver me from iniquity.
I determined to receive all He had for me...
Deliverance in my case was a process of growing spiritually, but one day I knew I was free.
I flushed all my tranquilizers down the toilet.
Since that day 27 years ago, I have not taken a single dose of any mood-altering drug...
Forgive everyone who has ever hurt or disappointed you.
Otherwise, you will develop bitter roots that not only fill you with wrong thoughts but also affect your physical well-being.  The Bible tells us that bitterness dries the bones. 
This is where the blood is produced. Bitter roots bear bitter fruits

Hughes, Selwyn  Born to Praise Day 7 Try Praise ď1 dark day, many years ago, I suffered a few weeks of depression that brought me to the verge of giving up the ministry.
I tried praying, but the more I prayed, the more depressed I felt. 
The Spirit said, ĎTry praise.í  However, I  rationalized the issue & persuaded myself that what I was hearing was a voice from my own subconscious.  Again the Spirit said, ĎTry praise.í 
I did & the heaviness lifted from me within seconds.  I felt as if a great weight had been taken off my shoulders.  Joy flooded into my heart in response to my praise. 
From that day to this, serious depression has never once entered  my life.Ē  Broadman & Holman publishers

Kelley, Earthquake - Bound to Lose, Destined to Win - http://earthquakekelleyministries.org/books/ - Chapter 12 Gateway to Hell - "It was a spirit that causes people to experience intense loneliness and to believe that life is not worth living.  As they experience further hurt, the door opens to another spirit called atarroth adder or crown of snakes.  These demonic snakes wrap themselves around a person's head like a crown & slowly squeeze. 
The spirit squeezes until the person is convinced he can no longer deal with the pressure.  Then he kills himself.  The crown of snakes does not attack only homosexuals, nor does it attack only people who are engaged in immoral sexual activity.  Anybody who is under so much stress that they feel unable to cope with life is likely dealing with an attach by this demonic spirit.  This spirit can also cause migraine headaches...
Command that spirit to leave in the name of Jesus.  Then plead the blood of Jesus

King, Patricia - http://www.kimclement.com/downloads/PatriciaKing_Tongues.pdf - "Even after becoming a Christian, I still suffered depression, because I did not understand that I had power over Satan with authority to overcome.
1 day, as depression was attempting to grip me, I said to myself, 'Oh no. There it is again.' Then I heard God ask, 'Do you want to be delivered from that?'  Surprisingly, I was not sure I wanted deliverance. I realized that, in some strange way, I liked the depression because people were much nicer to me when I was depressed. However, when I recognized that I had to give it up, the Lord said, 'I will deliver you from depression if you desire Me to.' 
I replied, 'Lord, I really do want to be free.'  He said, 'You have the power to overcome depression. I have given you power over all the power of the enemy, but you must exercise that power & resist the lies of the devil.' Depression is a lie. It is not the truth...Bind your mind to truth instead of facts.
The Lord taught me how to overcome depression through a vision of a mail carrier bringing a package of depression to my front door. The postman said, 'Hereís your depression.' The sender was Lu-C-Fer (Lucifer).
In this vision, I saw myself write across the package, Return to Sender. The Lord warned me, Do not let that package into your house (your life); donít sign for it; donít suck it in or in anyway receive it Ö RESIST
After the vision, I went for a 10-mile prayer walk. I prayed in tongues almost the entire time while resisting feelings of depression. I was firm in my commitment to stand in truth and resist the devil, so he would flee in terror.
Soon, I felt depression lift.  That day back in 1980 was the last time I suffered from depression. 
Of course, it knocked on the door of my mind from time to time, but I would do exactly what God taught me: refuse to receive it and write across the package of temptation: 'RETURN TO SENDER' in bold letters.
Then, I would pray in tongues until I felt the pressure of the temptation leave.
Depression is not in heaven &, as a child of God, you are not required to endure it on earth.
Speaking in tongues builds you up to resist the enemy & frees you from satanic attacks and addictions...
Keeping you out of your head - We do not connect with God with our mind but through our heart.
Another benefit of praying in tongues is that it will 'keep you out of your head.' Scripture says that when you pray in tongues, your spirit is praying; your mind is not: For one who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God; for no one understands, but in his spirit he speaks mysteries (1 Corinthians 14:2). In other words, the mind does not know what you are saying as you pray with your spirit.  Many times that is a great benefit."

Depression + Bipolar + Standing in gap for kid +
MICHAEL: . I became seriously manically & suicidally depressed.
I knew I was depressed because I was finishing my PhD in psychology, so we talking about the timing of the Lord. I was 37 & thought my life was over, but Jesus healed me.
MICHAEL: My oldest son started self-medicating. He was just a young man, 12-13, & we were homeless.
Many negative things happened.  He started just trying to take care of his pain.
MICHAEL: We had a beautiful home we lost.  Every possible, negative thing (happened) from death threats to the whole town talking about us. The Lord told me if I would forgive the people that had hurt me, He would make me forget the pain they caused me. So I made a list. I forgave the people. 
After about 7 weeks of praying for people, the Lord visited me.
It's amazing. Not only took away the pain, He gave me love for the people that broke my heart.
My son, the moment he could, moved out of our house (to) the streets.  Drug dealers were trying to kill him.  Police (were) trying to arrest him. I just would lay on his bed that he grew up in & just prayed, "God, tonight, don't let my son die." The Lord spoke to me & said He wanted me to change the way that I talked about my son. The Lord reminded me of all the prophetic words over the years He'd given me about my son's life.
I told my wife & we started saying (prophesying/declaring over/about/that) our son is a history maker & world shaker, man of God. He's going to be a godly husband & father.
MICHAEL: The Lord had spoken to me so strongly that if I would change my vocabulary, the outcome would be changed. So I just started repeating God's Word. Like Paul told Timothy, "Do warfare by the prophetic words you've received." I started speaking over his life that he would be everything God said he would be.
Within 7 weeks of doing that, God visited my son & delivered him from drugs.
He moved back home, became a missionary to Haiti with the Bible school, married a wonderful woman, became our church executive pastor, has 4 great kids & is a successful businessman.
So everything God told me came to pass when I started saying what God said to me about him.

Maldonado, Guillermo - Overcoming Depression - There can be a spiritual cause to depression.

Meyer, Dr Paul - Blue Genes - www.meierclinics.org - 12/2005 TV @ www.joycemeyer.org - Paul notes that many depressed individuals are helped by taking GABA, which may be as a supplement or as a medication. 
Paul recommends a readily absorbed liquid multi vitamin (called 2 Your Health) which he formulated, containing L-tryptophan + vitamin B6 and B12.  Tryptophan can be readily found in food such as bananas & chicken. 
He stresses that adequate sleep is imperative.  Tryptophan may help both sleep & serotonin levels to combat depression.  He said he himself had a bout with depression, as many do + that he contends with ADD.
Meyer is founder of the Christian counseling Meyer Clinics.

Meyer, Joyce - 7 Things That Steal Your Joy - www.joycemeyer.org - Joyce notes that it is not our job to make our parents look good, as expected/demanded by many parents.  It is not our job/responsibility to keep everybody happy.  God is the grand-parent of Cain & Able, yet He did not prevent one from murdering the other.

CHAD: I had my 1st panic attack when I was 5 years old. A demonic presence filled my room & as a little boy, I had no clue what was going on. Panic attack started at 5, got stronger at 12, began to have many night terrors, night tremors. Also grew up in a little bit of legalism, so I developed a mindset of God as distant, sadistic, out to get me. Other than that, I was great. So I had a rough go at it. Attacks, really bad mindset.
This led me to go on medications when I was 18 as a freshman in college. My world fell apart internally.
I didn't have a theology that helped me. I had a theology that I was alone. I felt alone.
I went on (psychiatric medications including) Klonopin, Zoloft & Xanax at the age of 18.
CHAD: I think a lot of us are afraid to invite the Lord into our mess. Shortly thereafter, I drove 9 hours to Titusville, Florida with my wife where I had some spiritual warfare counseling. Now you have to understand, I was a cessationist... It's not that I was against anything supernatural, it just wasn't my experience.
It was more of just ignorance than anything. In the middle of the afternoon counseling session, this counselor just asked me a question this Baptist boy had no grid for...I had my 1st open vision. Jesus Christ stared right at me, the most kind, tender (way)... It wasn't His power that knocked me out of the chair, it was His love.
There was a 9-foot angel on 1 side with a sword, a 6-foot angel on 1 side. Jesus said, "I'm your healer. Trust Me." He told me that twice. Now I didn't grow up around supernatural stories. When this happened I fell into the floor under His love. The 1st thing I said to my wife when I came to is, "We are not in Kansas anymore."
I was like, "If Jesus is that kind, that means His father is that kind."
It was a matter of days where the Father began to help me unlearn most of what I'd ever learned about Him.
I felt like I was in a (love) matrix. (ENTIRE editorial is recommended.)

Oyedepo, David - Nigeria - Satan Get Lost - excellent http://www.planetfreebook.com/Classic_collection/classic_books_author_NO_PDF_

"Who is the author? - Satan, the enemy. Depression chokes the brain.
It robs the mind! (Luke 8:14). It blinds the mind! (2 Corinthians 4:4). It is a very destructive weapon of the enemy. It must be fought. It is a destroyer...makes victims of men...enters into the mind to block it from the light of the glorious gospel. It chokes the Word and makes the mind unproductive.  When you are depressed, your access to God's presence is blocked (Psalm 100:1-5). Depression disconnects you from the Father.
Depression destroys your harvest. If the devil can get you depressed any day, he has spoilt your day...
Depression brings a man under a curse (Deuteronomy 28:47-48). It is the worst enemy of your destiny.  Depression retards your flight to your high places, as your joy is cut off (Habakkuk 3:17-19). 
Satan brings cares, worries and anxieties to keep you down, the Word of God becomes meaningless to you & consequently unimportant... Whereas sins are forgivable, depression has to be treated, because it is a sin against oneself, not against God. So deal with it...Heaviness is a spirit (Isaiah 61:3). It is 1 of the key strategies of Satan to strip God's people naked.  Satan calculates heaviness for God's people because he knows no one can stop the fiery acts of God when man is giving God quality praise. So fight heaviness.  Every time you can't find joy, the thief is at work. The devil comes to steal your joy, so he can make a victim of you. But a ceaseless flow of joy will cause your spiritual life to blossom.  Engage in this 'heavenly sense' to be free from depression... Reading/memorizing/speaking) God's Word makes you (superior &) smarter than the devil. The Word of God carries the divine nature and it is transferred to you when it is formed in you & becomes your life style. Divine (superior) nature is conveyed into every human vessel via the Word of God... For example, a man tells himself, 'I'm feeling feverish.' Once God's Word which says, 'He took your infirmities and bore your sicknesses & by his stripes you are healed' (Isaiah 53:5), comes alive in such a man, the next thing he will say is, 'Satan, you must be the one feeling feverish. As for me, I feel healthy, because Jesus took my infirmities. 
God's Word
says in Joel 3:10, 'Let the weak say, I am strong?.  So Satan, get lost (in Jesus' name)'...
Your agreement with God is what determines what heaven releases to you.
If I agree with you and you disagree with God, how will you escape? (Hebrews 2:3).
It is your agreement with God that determines your fate in any conflict of life."

I was reading the opening verses of Isaiah 61, which describe the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit in bearing testimony to the message of the Gospel-verses Jesus applied to Himself in the synagogue in Nazareth (see Luke 4:16-21).  As I came to the words in verse 3, 'the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness' (xiv, emphasis added) also called 'a spirit of despair' (NIV) & 'a spirit of fainting' (NASB).  I could read no further. It was as though the phrase the spirit of heaviness was underlined by some invisible hand.  I repeated the phrase to myself: the spirit of heaviness.
Was this God's diagnosis of my condition?  Could it mean that the force I was struggling with was not part of myself, but an alien person-an evil spirit being that somehow: occupied an area of my mind, (attempting to speak speak like a
ventriloquist or manipulate like a pupeteer)?"

Ramprasad, Gayathri - (non Judeo-Christian) - Shadows in the Sun: Healing from Depression and Finding the Light Within by Gayathri Ramprasad [PDF] - "As a young girl in Bangalore, Gayathri was surrounded by the fragrance of jasmine and flickering oil lamps, her family protected by Hindu gods and goddesses. But as she grew older, demons came forth from the dark corners of her idyllic kingdom with the scariest creatures lurking within her. The daughter of a respected Brahmin family, Gayathri began to feel different: I can hardly eat, sleep, or think straight. The only thing I can do is cry unending tears. Her parents insisted it was all in her head.
Because traditional Indian culture had no concept of depression as an illness, no doctor could diagnose & no medicine could heal her mysterious malady.  This memoir traces Gayathri's courageous battle with the depression that consumed her from adolescence through marriage & a move to the United States.  It was only after the birth of her first child, when her husband discovered her in the backyard clawing the earth furiously with my bare hands, intent on digging a grave, so that I could bury myself alive that she finally found help. After a stay in a psych ward she eventually found the light within, an emotional & spiritual awakening from the darkness of her tortured mind."

Sandford, John L & Paula - God's Power to Change - Healing the Wounded Spirit @ The Transformation Series - Chapter 4 Depression - www.elijahhouse.org - This (2007) chapter is extremely profound, but (in our opinion) only regarding those who are incapacitated, mentally ill, psychotic, catatonic, rather than for sad or gloomy individuals.  Basically what this chapter discusses is what is also showcased in Ana Mendez-Ferrell's (2009) book Regions of Captivitywww.votlm.org - When an individual is "spiritually stuck in a pit of hell" then he may need the assistance of BOTH heavenly host and intercessors standing in the gap.  Important textbook or resource for those in ministry.  For those whose all other recourses have failed, including psychiatrists and deliverance.

Yoder, Dr Rebecca Brown - He Came to Set the Captives Free - www.harvestwarriors.com -
Chapter 18 Demonic Illnesses discusses a common medical problem, depression. Brown contends that either saying that no demon causes illness or saying all demons cause illness are extreme & may cause harm. 
Her experience is that human nature may cause depression as well as demons.  Even if demons do not cause depression, they may incite a person to depression, due to one's failure to filter thoughts. 
Humans tend to accept all thoughts as belonging to them.  They also tend not to reject their own thoughts which do not contribute to their well being.  Humans have the bad habit of being lazy when it comes to their their thought life.  A major open door for a demon to enter & contribute to depression is incest. 
A demon of incest can control/possess an individual in 3 areas - body, mind, soul.  Such a demon can enter the victim (during childhood without permission, as a consequence of trauma).  Deliverance is available from God.
Yoder, Dr Rebecca Brown - Prepare for War - www.harvestwarriors.com -
Chapter 17 Deliverance contends that a majority of depression cases & suicide result from passivity, failure to resist/defend oneself and fight back against demonic assault. 
Blanking out of the mind is especially harmful, such as seen in a majority of hypnotists/Asian techniques.

"Cowper apparently became a believer in 1764 while in residence at St. Albans Insane Asylum.
He happened upon a Bible on a bench in the garden, & God used John 11 & Romans 3:25 to open his eyes to the goodness of Jesus & the sufficiency of his atoning work."
Cowper, William - https://www.christianity.com/church/church-history/timeline/1701-1800/william-cowper-depressed-hymn-writer-11630214.html - As a depressed 32 yr old he had a stay at the local mental institution, but became born again.  "However, as he neared death, his melancholic mental state reasserted itself & he became convinced that he was one of the souls that his rigorous Calvinist upbringing had taught were predestined to damnation.
A poem titled 'The Castaway' vividly illustrates his apprehensions." 
(We EACH need to invite Jesus to baptize us with His Holy Spirit & to fellowship & pray with like minded friends in order to mature spiritually enough to go from the defensive to the offensive against satan' wiles.)

Evans, Jimmy - Overcoming Depression @ http://www.marriagetoday.com/?s=mind+set+free (edited) Scriptures for meditation: Isaiah 43:1-5 + Isaiah 54:17 + Psalm 3:3 + Psalm 9:9-10 + Psalm 28:6-7 + Psalm 91 + Micah 7:18-19 + Galatians 6:9
UNHEALTHY and UNBIBLICAL THINKING - In the 10th chapter of 2 Corinthians, it says that we are to take Every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. With every chronic thought, problem, habit, or addiction in a personís life, there is a thought process. Without dealing with the thought life, we canít successfully resolve problems.  The Corinthians passage literally means 'listen under.' Our worldview, what people say, our natural thought processes & everything else must submit themselves to what God has to say. Regardless of how we feel or how logical something sounds, if it doesnít agree with Godís Word, we must reject it & accept what God says. Satan has always tried to give advice that is contrary to Godís. In the Garden of Eden, he twisted Godís word (Genesis 3:1). In Matthew 4, Satan tempted Jesus in the wilderness, but Jesus always replied with, 'It is written.'  Satan is cunning & will make sure that there is always someone around who will try to plant negative thoughts in your mind. It is up to us to decide if we will accept or reject negative thinking.
Receive & believe the Word of God & there will be no room for negative thoughts.
SPIRITUAL OPPRESSION - Isaiah 61:3 says, Put on the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.
Notice 2 truths contained in this scripture: 1st, depression or heaviness is referred to as a 'spirit.'
The Hebrew word for 'heaviness' in this passage can be translated 'darkness.'
Satan enjoys keeping people in the dark unaware of his schemes & clueless on how to fight. 
The answer for how to fight is found in the same passage: 'the garment of praise.'
This is the ultimate act of faith. When depression hits, the quickest way you can get out from under it is to praise God. Although you donít feel like praising, it is a powerful key to breaking oppression.
Proverbs 18:21 tells us, Death and life are in the power of the tongue. If your words are filled with hope, faith & praise for God, you have opened the door for God to flood your life with His light & power.
As with a garment, you will be covered & protected.  Y
he spirit of heaviness will have nowhere to rest on you."

How These 2 Sneaky Demonic Spirits Invaded SocietyóAnd Possibly Your Own Mind
- "Evans says he used to struggle with fear until one day, the Lord prompted him to change the way he approached it.  'Rather than treating it as my emotion, I began to treat as a demonic spirit that was there to be Satan's force in my life to keep me from doing what God wanted me to do,' Evans says. 'It worked.'  Though freedom didn't come instantly, Evans says he felt breakthrough in the weeks and months that followed. He says the same concept applies to depression.  To fight depression, Evans recommends Isaiah 61, which tells believers to put on a garment of praise for heaviness.  'But [the demon spirit of depression] attaches and is exactly like a demon spirit of fear,' Evans says. 'We don't think it's a demon spirit; we think it's our emotions. When we put on the garment of praise, we are focused on God, positive things & not ourselves & negative things.  Scripture says the demon spirit of heaviness leaves...Think about the difference of people sitting around, thinking of fear & depression as their emotions.  They're overwhelmed & defeated. 
(Then) think of a person who understands that they have authority in Christ over every demon spirit and that fear & depression are demon spirits that have (tempoarily) taken over,' he says." 

Friess, Steve USA Today 7/19/2007 editorial - Ingesting the placenta: Is it healthy for new moms? -
"The practice, known as placentophagy" is the ingesting of the afterbirth/placenta hoping to prevent post partum depression.  "Mark Kristal, a professor at State University of New York at Buffalo whose doctoral dissertation in 1971 focused on why animals eat their placentas, says his research leads him to suspect that animals derive pain relief from a substance in the placenta during delivery... Selander says, 'Every single mammal ingests its placenta. We are the only mammal on Earth that went away from this practice.' 
(In actuality, some mammals, including seafaring ones and camels, do not)."
Friess, Steve - http://www.stevefriess.com/archive/usatoday/placenta.htm - Prior to delivery/birth check with your hospital to see if and how they will save & remediate your placenta for consumption (or for freezing/storing for emergency future surgical procedures, where family members may need DNA from that tissue) .

Gut Health @ https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_app/health/depression-might-originate-in-your-gut-ways-to-heal_5010753.html - RECOMMENDED - 1/28/2023 - "According to a chapter in Translational Bioinformatics & Systems Biology for Understanding Inflammation, the gut-brain axis is a bidirectional communication system between the central nervous system (CNS) & the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, also known as the enteric nervous system or '2nd brain.' It is also the largest part of the autonomic nervous system.
Its circuitry allows it to coordinate gastrointestinal functions & plays an essential role in maintaining equilibrium within the body, including the brain... '
95% of the serotonin in the body is not from the brain.  Itís from the gut,' says Jeremy Appleton, a naturopathic physician...
Angelo Pezzote holds a doctorate in pharmacy & is a board-certified psychiatric pharmacist & clinical mental health counselor. He marries the 2 professions with mind and body and works almost as a psychiatrist would.  Although Pezzote assists prescribers with medication recommendations, his focus is less on medications & more on 'nutritional psychiatry' (ALERT: Just omit the recommended occult: meditation, yoga, tai chi)... Prebiotic foods include chicory root, garlic, onions, and leeks...Probiotics can also help improve the gut microbiome. They can be found in foods including kefir, yogurt, kimchi, tempeh & other fermented foods & probiotic supplements.

Pat Holloran - http://powerinvasion.wordpress.com/prophecy/pat-holloran/october-2nd-2009-part-2/  (edited) 
"You know people who suffer depression.  Do you know thereís a scripture to get rid of it or thereís a cause of it.  Proverbs 12 says anxiety in the heart causes depression but a good word makes it glad. 
If someone is going through depression, he can command anxiety in the heart that causes depression to leave & can send it under the feet (not to the feet) but under the feet of Jesus Christ. Ephesians 1:20-23.  I did it.  We were doing a seminar in Germany. 100 leaders of Europe. The Lord says, 'Command depression to leave them.' 
I went, ďWhat Lord; weíve got government people here, CEOs of Mercedes Benz and denominational leaders?'  
He says, 'You just do it.' I have those moments, I really do, like I did with my earthly daddy.
He said, 'Call them forward.'  I said, 'Ok.' 'All those that have depression stand up; come forward.'
62 out of the 100 came forward. I went, 'Whoa.'  My friend that was translating for me goes, 'Pat, my friend, what have you done?'   'You know; Iím just doing what God said to do.'  'I was afraid of that,' he said.  Then the Lord says, 'Now find out all who have medication and bring it up.'  Literally all 62 were on treatment for clinical depression on pharmacy stuff.  Ladies in fine sport outfits went back to their purses men grabbed them out of their sport coats.  They all brought them up.   The Lord says, 'Hold them up.' I said, 'Hold them up.' I said, 'Anxiety in the heart that causes depression, leave, go under the feet of Jesus Christ.'  Pop, pop, pop.  Every bottle burst open, pills everywhere.  All 62 fell on top of each other, by the written Word of God thatís all.  I didnít tell them to stop taking their medication.  Thatís not what Iím suppose to do, such a great man of faith that I am, but I said, 'God remove the ungodly Pharmacia, ungodly codependency from medication off them.'  We had reports that they all got delivered, but itís the written Word of God; when you establish the Lord every day, Iím telling you, you can do these things.  Do you know the Lordís voice?  Only one time does it say the still small voice of the Lord.
The rest of the time: the Thundering Voice of God, the voice of many waters, trumpets, thatís God.
Youíll know when God the Father talks to you, because it will sound like a choir.  There will be a bass section, a tenor section, an alto, soprano, all of it.  When He calls me itís like a choir ďPat, Pat, Pat, PatĒ all of at once. 
Itís harmony.  The voice of God is many waters, harmony.  You will know when Daddy calls your name."


Cindy Jacobs: It's Time to Bind the Python Spirit Choking You With Depression - 6/2/2017 - "I had a vision. 
I realized m
any are under attacks with divination being sent against you, not only by witchcraft, but word-curses spoken against you...things that are untrue...People...insinuate something that is not true about you or cast aspersions on your character.  I feel like the Lord is saying, 'I am fighting on your defense...reputation...peace of mind.'  I see the enemy like a python spirit...that's constricting. In the name of Jesus, I bind that python spirit that is just kind of squeezing you, causing depression, oppression.  In my spirit I just felt something break off someone...Sometimes we think maybe we're just having a down day, but some days it is a demonic oppression sent against you. We don't want to ever discount that, because the Bible is very clear about, that there are angels and demons as well.  So Father, in the name of Jesus, I break the word-curses sent against you.
I break those voices speaking against you, trying to hurt your reputation, trying to slander you. 
Father, I thank you. All constriction that is trying to stop you from speaking out what you need to speak, saying what you need to say, is broken now. The Bible says the truth sets us free."

Dr Bruce Lipton PHD - cellular biologist - theory of cellular memory editorial - (CAUTION.  Lipton seems to be intensively interested in evolution & in "energy" medicine, which sometimes can be rooted in the occult.) - www.brucelipton.com  Biology of Belief - Bruce Lipton : Excerpt : Chapter One - recommended reading - "Each cell is an intelligent being that can survive on its own, as scientists demonstrate when they remove individual cells from the body and grow them in a culture...These smart cells are imbued with intent and purpose; they actively seek environments that support their survival while simultaneously avoiding toxic or hostile ones. Like humans, single cells analyze thousands of stimuli from the microenvironment they inhabit. Through the analysis of this data, cells select appropriate behavioral responses to ensure their survival.  Single cells are also capable of learning through these environmental experiences and are able to create cellular memories, which they pass on to their offspring. For example, when a measles virus infects a child, an immature immune cell is called in to create a protective protein antibody against that virus. In the process, the cell must create a new gene to serve as a blueprint in manufacturing the measles antibody protein."  Trying to comprehend cellular memory - editorial http://www.pillaroflight.net/Bruce%20Lipton.pdf

Loyd, Dr. Alex - http://www.abundance-and-happiness.com/dr-alex-loyd.html - The Healing Codes and The Success Codes - "The conscious mind can only remember for 20 seconds, and process about 3,000 bits per second & can only handle 1-2 tasks at a time. On the other hand, the subconscious acts as the storehouse of memory for the conscious mind and can remember many things indefinitely, & can process over 38 billion bits per second & is multi-task orientated.  In order to effectively make change permanent in one's life it is necessary to make those changes at a subconscious level." 
"Emotional trauma can also create deeply embedded subconscious patterns which can be difficult to pinpoint & effectively deal with...
It is not necessary to pinpoint these (subconscious/cellular) issues/memories/beliefs/thoughts...
A series of healing protocols on 4 specific healing centers naturally addresses & removes those issues." 
His "heart rate variability testing enables examiners to see when the autonomic nervous system is in or out of balance."  "Autonomic stress created in the body is due to a gland in the brain called the Hypothalamus. 
The Hypothalamus is a mechanism in the brain which sends a signal to the rest of the body which causes the autonomic nervous system to go into fight or flight mode when danger is detected...
Dr. Loyd discovered when this happens the immune system is shut down as an automatic response mechanism to allow the body full energy to get out of the danger that it perceives that it's in...due to cellular memories...stored due to any number of past traumatic experiences or 'false beliefs'. 
(These negative cellular memories contribute to or help) create this stress initiating the fight or flight mode within the body's autonomic nervous system repressing the immune system & allowing dis-ease to form."

Apostle G Maldonado - http://kingjesusministry.org/the-cycle-of-strongholds/ - How to be Free
1. Recognize that you have allowed Satan to place thoughts in your mind.
2. Repent wholeheartedly.
3. The more you die to self, the harder it will be for the devil to place thoughts in your mind (that do not agree with God's thoughts)...
If Satan comes with thoughts and you entertain them, he...will continue to send you those kinds of thoughts.
Donít respond to them.
4. Get ready to take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. Cast out those (wrong) thoughts immediately.
The Strongest strongholds are: Fear of man, Tradition or religion, Mammon, Sexual, Poverty, Rebellion, Fear, Disbelief.  How many of you recognize that you (may) have allowed the devil to bring thoughts to your mind?
If you want to repent and destroy strongholds, repeat this prayer:
ďHeavenly Father, I recognize that I (may) have allowed the enemy to establish thoughts in my mind.
I repent, and with all of my heart.
I ask You to forgive me and to cleanse me with Your blood.
I renounce every stronghold in my mind.
I believe that You have given me the power to destroy and to cast them out (in Your name, Jesus).
Right now, in Your name, Jesus, I order every (bad) strong hold to leave.
I renounce every form of thinking that comes from the enemy.
I am free, now (in Your name, Jesus'). Amen.

Prince, Derek - Wear Your Helmet @ You've Got to Have Hope legacy editorial - excellent @ file:///C:/Users/cefal/AppData/Local/Packages/Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe/TempState/Downloads/TL05_2%20(1).pdf (edited) "In fighting this battle to keep my deliverance from depression, I became aware that the problem area in my life above others was the area of my mind. The devil was continually reaching me through my (soul: emotions, will-power and) mind. I happen to have had the privilege of a very sophisticated education.
I have discovered that the more highly refined and cultivated a personís mind is, the more vulnerable it is to Satan. The more you trust in your mind, the more Satan is able to use it against you.
I learned that it was up to me to teach my mind & thoughts that they were the servant, NOT the master. I came to see that I needed protection for my mind. In Ephesians 6:14Ė18 there are 6 items of equipment:
The girdle of truth, breastplate of righteousness, shoes of the preparation of the gospel of peace, shield of faith, helmet of salvation and sword of the Spirit, all made effective through the weapon of prayer (especially praying in tongues, via initially asking for & receiving Jesus' Holy Spirit baptism). As I studied that list, I noticed the 1 piece of equipment that is obviously designed to protect the mind: the helmet of salvation.
The helmet covers the head, which is typically associated with the thought-life.
I saw that God had provided me with protection for my mind. I knew I had salvation.
But I wondered if that meant that I automatically have the helmet of salvation or is there more? In my Bible, the crossreference to Ephesians 6:17 was 1 Thessalonians 5:8, which says: But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation. The helmet is called the hope of salvation. Hope...Holy Spirit led me from Scripture to Scripture through the New Testament showing me that my whole spiritual experience was unbalanced and incomplete without a proper under-standing of the place of hope as the protection of my mind. In 1 Corinthians 13:13, Paul says: Now abide faith, hope, love, these 3...
Faith and hope are located in different areas of the human personality. Biblical faith relates to the present from the realm of the heart. Hope relates to the future from the realm of the mind. The protection of the believerís mind is the helmet of hope. I believe every Judeo-Christian must be an optimist. To be a pessimist is, in effect, a denial of his faith. Hope provides a confident expectation of good. My mind, captivated by the spirit of heaviness, was now liberated. God showed me that my mind was liberated, that I might retrain (& restrain) it.
God was not going to retrain it for me.
That was my responsibility. I had to cultivate a totally different outlook: different attitudes, reactions, mental patterns. Romans 8:28, one of many verses, supports that every believer (in the Trinity) should be an optimist: 
We know that: all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose...& are sincerely seeking to walk in His purposes...
If (we agree with God that) all things are working together for good, there can be no (spiritual) reason for pessimism.  Every situation is an occasion for optimism.
The key is to train our minds to embrace this (God/scriptural) truth & (begin to) live by it...
(Once invited) Christ is actually in us, and is our actual hope of (future) glory.
The one who has Christ within has hope for that future...glory with Almighty God. When we have Christ('s Holy Spririt) indwelling us (we also have His resurrection power to help us NOW moment to moment in our DAILY lives).
Hebrews 6:18Ė20, emphasizes the tremendous basis for faith in Christ...
High Priest
(& intercessor) forever according to the order of Melchizedek...
Intentional Training - It is up to us to train our minds to hope.
In my own life, the difference was like night & day. It didnít come in 5 minutes, though; it took more than 5 years.
But itís been worth every bit of training that Iíve put into it. Deliverance will set you free to do your share.
But itís your responsibility to contend for your (initial & daily ongoing) deliverance. For many of us (if not most of us), the mind is the most vulnerable point. Take the helmet of salvation, the helmet of hope. Put it on. Cover your mind. Protect your thoughts; bring them under control & in line with the Word of God. Experience the glorious (subsequent) results."  (Google the opposite scripture of every negative plaguing you.  Write it down and recite it out loud, as often as needed.) 
(Let's be reminded, on the cross Jesus said, "It is finished."  Thus our part begins where His ended, once we invite Jesus to be our saviour & Holy Spirit baptizer, allowing Holy Spirit to indwell and empower us day by day.)

Reproduction of articles from the DPM Archive for free distribution is permitted. (excerpt)
ďI had come to the end of my solutions.  One day a phrase in Isaiah 61:3 captured my attention: The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness...When I read that phrase I suddenly realized that I was dealing with a spiritóa personality that studied me, knew my weaknesses, knew how & when to attack me. I was not dealing with mental or psychological conditions merely in myself. I was not dealing merely with a habit pattern. But there was a person set against me: by Satan himself studying me and plotting my downfall. Then I saw why the pressure got worse the more I wanted to serve the Lord: because the mission of this spirit was to hinder me in my service for God. When I was somewhat slack and indifferent, the pressure was lifted. But the more dedicated & earnest I became, the more the pressure increased. I was dealing with a personality with understanding that knew just how and when to apply the pressure.  Recognizing the identity of my enemy was a tremendous step forward. I searched the Scriptures and found a verse that I believed would bring me the solution to my problem. Joel 2:32 says: It shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered.  I believed this promise was just as all inclusive as John 3:16: Whoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life.  I saw Joel 2:32 as a promises: specifically of deliverance. I put the 2 Scriptures together:
Isaiah61:3 & Joel 2:32. I prayed a very specific prayer. I named the spirit (the spirit of heaviness).
I claimed Godís own promise:ďWhosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be deliveredĒ). 
I prayed, ďGod, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, according to Your Word, Iím asking You to deliver me from this spirit of heaviness.Ē
When I prayed that specific, scriptural prayer, I was delivered.  The pressure was lifted
Then my learning experience continued. I learned that itís 1 thing to be delivered; itís another thing altogether to stay delivered.  God began to show me that He had done His part.  Now I had to do my part. He had set my mind free from this demonic pressure.  Now it was up to me to re-educate my mind, to cultivate a totally different outlook & way of thinking. Before I was delivered, I was not able to do it. After I was delivered, it was my responsibility to do it (with indwelling Holy Spiritís help). God had done His part in delivering me, but I had to do my part in maintaining my deliverance.  I believe this is true in almost any realm in which God intervenes on your behalf: salvation, healing, deliverance. God does His part and then itís up to you to do your part. 
Your part is to maintain, to hold on to what God has given you.

Evans, Jimmy - Total Freedom http://www.daystar.com/ondemand/video/?video=5622552649001 - Satan's spiritual dark depression/ oppression is often targeted at those who have special spiritual holy destinies/assignments. 
Evans cites Perfect Lies authored by Jennifer Crow. - Much of negative emotion is not one's own personal feeling, but rather a separate evil talking entity/spirit (especially when it consistently/relentlessly accuses/condemns/ torments/harasses/harms us or another or lands us up in an institution/hospital/ prison).  The Bible cites such spirits: fear/confusion/depression/discouragement, who get away with murder/suicide/institutionalization due to being hidden/unrecognized by both clergy & psychiatrists.  Thus if a person (rather than Satan) is labeled & treated (perhaps with RX) then the patient may never discover & reverse/root out his disease/ diagnosis.  God will NOT war/do for us what He has already given/deputized us (His forgiven/adopted kids with inherited authority) to do for ourselves.  Jesus won the victory over evil spirits, but we His kids need to enforce that victory, once we recognize our invisible foe + our (spiritual super-power) inheritance in the Trinity.  Sometimes healing is best remedied outside isolation, in a safe group. @ http://www.daystar.com/shows/daystar-original-programs/jonilamb/

ROBERT: Well it came out of my own desperation and necessity. Initially, I had a son who was set in depression who was not given to depression. He was there for 2 years.
I had actually battled in war on the battlefield in prayer, to speak, but all of a sudden the Lord whispered to me, "
Bring him to My courts."  I did that, out of the limited under-standing that I had at that time. 
According to Romans 8:26, the Bible ways when we don't know how to pray He helps us. So He began to help me.  He led me through the process in the Courts of Heaven.  A week & a half later my son calls & says, "Dad, can I talk to you?  "I said, "Absolutely."  He says, "I don't know what happened, but a week and a half ago all the depression left."  He was completely free, completely free.

God, the Judge of All the Earth; The Court-Rooms of Heaven
- When Chip and I were at Sid Rothís taping a 7/18/2016 program, Sid mentioned a previous guest Robert Henderson, author of Operating in the Courts of Heaven... It seems that Robert Henderson and his son had both been pastors. His son had had difficulties. 
He had backslidden & entered into depression.  Henderson & his wife contended for their son
While in prayer, Henderson got caught up to heaven
 The Lord said to him, 'My children know Me as Father & Provider, but not as Judge.' 
He showed him the Courtroom of Heaven, how it worked, & that he could come on behalf of his son, because he was the father.  Henderson came to the Father and repented for his son [1 John 5:16]. 
The Lord said, 'You repent also.'  Why?  The Lord had heard the negative, hindering words he & his wife had spoken against their son. Therefore, the (spiritual) enemy. the accuser, had used the Hendersonís (parents' spoken) words against their son to accuse him before God
The words that had been spoken against the son were words such as: 'We raised our son better than this,' etc...
At one time, Charles Finney was not sure of his own father's salvation, but the Lord solaced him with this scripture. Hebrews 12: Praying from Heavenly Jerusalem, Heavenly Mount Zion.  Doing business with the Judge of all the Earth, through Jesus Christ: Hebrews 12:22-24  But ye are come unto mount Sion, unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, & to an innumerable company of angels, 23. To the general assembly & church of the 1st born, which are written in heaven, to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24. 
To Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.  God has made us by Christ Jesus a kingdom of kings and priests (Revelation 5:10).
We are to do business with God, bringing others to Him. This is what priests do; we do business in Heavenly Jerusalem, our Mother, where we are born from & are citizens of (Galatians 4:26; Philippians 3:20 ASV). 
The Lord showed me this many years ago in the very beginning of ministry. I was speaking at a church under extreme adverse circumstances.  The Lord had told me that afternoon to teach the whole message of the Glory, from Genesis to Revelation.  Arriving at the church, I found out that I had only 30 minutes to speak. 
I spoke so fast that after I was finished, I did not even understand what I taught.  Yet toward the end, the Glory Cloud came in with miracles, supernatural signs & wonders. I just watched Him move.  All this happened simply because I did business with God that afternoon as He taught me about prayer from Hebrews 12.
(The CD about this experience is entitled Praying on Mt. Zion)

"Singer-Songwriter John Waller had a (manic) depression (bipolar) for over 20 years.

"John told CCM magazine about the pivotal song The Blessing, 'I lived 20 years of my life with depression and medication until God delivered & healed me 3 years ago. This illness has run through my family for generations. 'As a man thinketh in his heart, so he is' (Proverbs 23:7). I was told that I had it. I believed it and it became real in my life.
Jesus bore this curse along with every other at the cross. When I began to believe his reality, my reality changed. It's so important that we speak truth & blessing over our spouses & children & everyone around us.
The power to bless & curse is in the tongue.  I figured it was time for that to be said in a song.'"
Waller, John -
http://www.thelighthouseevents.com/johnwaller/bio.html - "A book John read by Aaron Fruh titled
The Forgotten Blessing: Ancient Words that Heal Generational Wounds
.  'It talks about the Old Testament tradition of the father blessing his son & daughter,' he says. Waller feels passionately about sharing the message in
The Blessing
. He knows 1st hand the power of the spoken word. Members of his family battled depression & unwittingly spoke the affliction into Johnís life as a young boy. Consequently, he battled the illness & was on medication for 20 years. 'For years I struggled with depression,' he relates. 'It was all in my family. It was a generational thing that was passed down. I believed I would always struggle with it. As I started learning about who I was in Christ, this did not add up. If I believed that I was a depressed person, then I probably always would be a depressed person.  If I believe that Iím a joyful person, have declared it & realized that is who I am, then thatís going to manifest itself in my physical body.'  With a strong circle of friends lifting him up in prayer, Waller was able to break the bonds of depression. He no longer found himself reliant on the medication that had become part of his life."

Since humans are trinity - 3 parts, sometimes all 3 parts need depression treatment. 
Doctors may need to give meds, at least temporarily. Counselors may need to give therapy, at least temporarily.  Pastors may need to minister to the spirit, at least temporarily. 
If any one of the above (body/mind/spirit) are not healed, then there could be relapses. 
Often we need a family/congregation/community/village to minister to EACH aspect of our humanness...
All thoughts come from many sources (self/others/God/Satan). 
We need to have a bouncer at the door of our mind to check each ID before accepting/ allowing a thought in.  Thoughts can trigger any of our 5 senses (sight/smell/touch/taste/ hearing) which can affect our emotions & reactions.  Beware, much of what we "experience" is of the flesh, rather than of the spirit. 
We need to begin to examine & to reject a lot of the familiar & begin to heed the gentle sweet whispers of God.  Some can learn music by ear training.  Some can learn a foreign language by ear. 
Likewise, man can acquaint him-self with the language of angels, by listening with his spiritual ears. 
Sometimes one calls them spiritual eyes/insight/wisdom/knowledge.  God's thoughts (found in scripture) always override (have dominion over) human (&/or evil) thoughts. The mistake we all tend to make is to believe what ever manifests to our mind or eyes, what doctors call scientific evidence. 
Much of our spiritual warfare is against agents invisible to the human eye (thoughts/feelings/ viruses/bacteria/demons) & needs to be fought with spiritual weapons. 
The more we confess OUT LOUD scripture that contradicts oppressive feelings & negative thoughts, we more we will allow God to place each invisible enemy (such of depression) under our feet/authority/control. 

Reviving the Heart of the Church

Michael Boldea Jr.  - 9/2003 -
The Angel said,"This is the Church...."  http://www.handofhelp.com/vision_49.php?printer_friendly=1  
"That night as I went to sleep the dream started again, the same as before.  
I looked at the woman, she smiled, the sadness overwhelmed me, but I didn't wake up.  
The door to the room opened and a man dressed in a white smock walked in holding a clipboard.  
Before he could say anything I began asking a barrage of questions.  'Who are you?  Why am I here?  Who is she? Why have I been dreaming this for almost a week?'  'Because you waited almost a week to FAST,' he said.  He must have noticed the stunned expression on my face, because his eyebrows arched upward.  
'I am a friend,' he continued, 'I was sent with a message; be at peace servant, all will be revealed in due time.'  'How do I know you're a friend,' I asked.  'Because, Jesus is Lord,' he answered.  
Then he smiled & I recognized him.  I had seen that smile before.  Suddenly I was 8 years old again, sleeping in the top bunk of the bed I shared with my grandparents, on a cold winter night in Romania.  
I will remember that night for as long as I live.  I had woken up to go to the restroom, but before I could get out of bed I heard talking below me.  My grand-father was talking to someone, I went to peer over the edge, to see who it was, and found my-self face to face with this same man.  He'd smiled at me & I'd instantly gone back to sleep. 
'I know you, don't I?'  'Yes we've met once before, but I see you often,' he answered.  'Why am I here?' I asked.  'Because you murmur, because you have said in your heart that you are on a fool's quest, because you think none hears, (and you think) that the message is falling on deaf ears.  It is not for you to judge the success the message has in the hearts of others, you were called to be a servant, serve.  
I was sent to rekindle the fire of compassion in your heart.  Compassion for the wayward & the lost, compassion for her,' he said pointing to the woman in the bed.  'Who is she?' 
"She is the church,' he answered me.  'Content only with the things of this earth, absent of spiritual strength.  She is the reason you & others like you were called to forfeit your lives.  The sadness you feel when you behold her is nothing compared to the sadness the Father feels for her condition.  
If she is to stand
in the fire, if she is to be victorious she must be strengthened."

Medical Research

Could daffodils hold a cure for depression? 6/27/2012 from http://theweek.com - [Wrong title.  Should read "how to trick the patient (with a DSM diagnosis &/or prescription) into taking/accepting psychiatric drugs."]  "Scientists at the University of Copenhagen discovered that a breed of South African daffodils contain a compound that essentially 'tricks' the barrier into letting drugs through. Researchers surmise that this can be used to essentially camouflage different medicines like antidepressants. 'The blood vessels of the brain are impenetrable for most compounds, one reason being the very active transporter proteins,' lead researcher Birger Brodin tells the Daily Mail. 'So it is of great interest to find compounds that manage to 'trick' this line of defense.' 
Why is this an advantage? 
Psychiatric treatment drugs
are harsh on the body & often come with 'horrible side effects,' says Harold Mandel at Examiner.  That's why scientists are always looking for natural ways, including possibly using flowers, to treat mental illnesses."

http://www.journalofpsychiatricresearch.com/article/S0022-3956(15)00069-2/abstract - Rumination (rehashing of issues in the way a cow would re-chew its food/cud) is known to predict relapse & a more severe course of MDD...even after full recovery of depressive symptoms (rumination may exist). 
MDD http://psychcentral.com/disorders/major-depressive-episode-symptoms/ can include
recurrent thoughts (such as) of death (not just fear of dying), recurrent suicidal ideation without a specific plan, or a suicide attempt or a specific plan for committing suicide.
