revkhbostic Posted November 15, 2017 Report Share Posted November 15, 2017 I recieved a Degree in Mental Health Technology with a Minor in Social work,back in 1979. For the past 30 yrs apx,I ve been putting together my Health & Longlife Resource pages/apx a doz ,that go with my 4,5,6 leaf clover sales for charity,& alternately a talisman pkg with my health and longlife resource pgs..In said pages,ther a listed a 1/2 doz or so supplements for depression. One year,I told the red cross hqtrs,they could hand them out,ie,my 4 leaf clovers or talisman sets with the health & longlife resource pgs, to people abusing stimulants,& tell them to use such anti depressant supplements from the health food store to help them get off such stimulants like the crack & cocaine,methamphetamines,etc..Once the stimulants wear off,they experience severe depression to the point of being suicidal .Same can happen with ADD/ADHD learning disorders taking ritalin as a side effect.Partly why they favor concera and adderal on the latter,over ritalin.One out of 10 boys is diagnosed with ADD/or ADHD. I have a book called the Physicians Guide To Life Extension Drugs by the Life Extension Foundation,Ive been a member off non for 17 yrs,which states:Pg 51 under Bromocryptine,Bromocryptine for cocaine detoxification.The American Society For Addiction Medicine in 1990 to 1991 ,stated bromocryptine was among the top 4 substances used for cocaine detoxification,and abstinance maintainance. The others were amantadine,desipramine/a anti depressant,and l tryptophan/anti depressant that is about the same as 5/HTP found in health food stores,also,it was banned a while after a tainted batch caused some sufferring,but tryptophan ban was lifted after they found it was a contaminated batch. Footnote ,Thanksgiving is upon us,and the epidemic of drug abuse may have some overdosing due to eating turkey with the use of these outlawed stimulants street drugs.So,another source of tryptophan is eating turkey. So,in extension of prescription anti depressants used thus as above,their over the counter counterparts from health food store & mail order outlets can do the same job. Writing this here can help spread the word,pass it on where appropriate and make our society a better place. PS,the medical marijuana where legal can also help take the edge off depression as well,liquor,makes depression and anxiety worse ,once the booze wears off ...Be Blessed. I thought Id also say I took a class in alcohol/substance abuse as a specialty class with my mental health/social; work major,& also that a social work technician rating came with graduation of such a major.A few yrs later,I took the State of NC soc Work Technician State exam,about 1982 ,and passed with a 93 % .
