What Causes Depression & Anxiety and How to Cure It


couldn't care

These are all words that can be used to describe some of the symptoms of Depression and Anxiety.  Contrary to popular belief, depression isn't just crying or feeling sad all the time. It can be anything from feeling indifferent towards people or situations, not looking forward to going to bed because of having to "do it all over again" the next morning or having no desire or motivation for daily tasks.


Anxiety isn't just panic attacks and feeling worried all the time. It can be as simple as avoiding social interactions or people because they make you uncomfortable, often feeling restless, or irritable, and even experiencing headaches or excessive perspiration.


Depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide and anxiety is the most common mental health disorder, yet although these and their underlying conditions are prevalent, fortunately, no one needs to suffer from these diseases for a lifetime. For one to be able to minimize or get rid of these symptoms, they must first understand why they are occurring.


Dr. Nedley's highly successful science-backed mental health treatment and research program does exactly that. What this course highlights is that no one is immune from experiencing depression or anxiety. It often happens when a person is experiencing 4 or more of what Dr. Nedley describes as the "Ten "Hit" Categories for being diagnosed with depression or anxiety. Thankfully, many people have been able to completely eliminate depression and/or anxiety by following the proven principles of this program.

The most help from the D/A group was my eyes were opened to what degree of negativity I was thinking/saying to myself and others. I couldn’t believe it and it was difficult at first to find this out about myself, but certainly worth it. I was surprised at not just myself, but how negative others were in my life and have since let go of one person in my life, easily. Life is indeed better without so much negativity from either myself, or others.


I came into the program thinking that it would do nothing for me and that it was kind of pointless because I was too far in my depression and anxiety. But by the time the first session had ended, I felt a difference like there was hope for me. As a sessions went on and on and I heard more of the information, I felt a little bit better each time because there was a sliver of hope that I could get out of the hole that I was in. Although I'm still suffering from both depression and anxiety, I remember that it doesn't have to always be this way. And I'd actually like to thank you for inspiring me to be part of the program. Overall, I loved the information, the fellowship, the new friends I've made. It felt like a breath of fresh air in probably the dullest time of my life.

The program was pretty comprehensive. One thing thing I like about the program is that it gets into the roots of a problem rather than treating symptoms. At night, I couldn’t shut my mind off. I was a smoker for 30 years. As a result of the program I was able get the help I needed to quit. I would recommend the program first to anyone who feel they might have depression, and also to anyone who is close to someone who suffers with depression…
