I do both...

catherine orion

everybody i meet is on anti depressants. Everybody is depressed. Perhaps its time to re assess exactly what we mean by depression. It is OK to feel sad, to feel bad, to worry .. to be anxious... there is lots to feel that way about.... but its wrong to suggest that people be 'happy' all the time. If for one reason or another a person simply cannot function then it is time to have a good hard look for a medical reason... but to expect to be happy all the time is irrational. We are far too drug dependant and we give away our freedom to Big Pharma... I hope not with the help of Yoga Journal!


Very very true -medication for depression is far from good.
It creates drug-dependency as well as side -effects!
Medication for combatting depression is definitely not wise.


Please don't put medication as a way out of depression such a good article such a thoughtless advice
