From Blue to New!
Turning blue into bright all over again
“You’re lazy and useless you’re a complete failure you’ll never amount to anything”
Ever heard those words? A British prime minister did.
“I am the saddest person alive. I can’t stay this way. If I don’t get better soon, I’ll die.”
Ever felt this way? A United States president did!
But like them, you too CAN beat the blues and find a brand New You!!
“I am now the most miserable man living. If what I feel were equally distributed to the whole human family, there would be not one cheerful face on earth.
Whether I shall ever be better, I cannot tell. I awfully forbode (fearfully predict) I shall not. To remain as I am is impossible. I must die or be better it appears to me.”
Born into a poverty-stricken family, a failure in business, twice disappointed in love – it’s little wonder that Abraham Lincoln spoke the above words.
In them, we can now see that Lincoln felt the utter hopelessness that is now recognised as major depression.
Yet Lincoln rose above his long-term depression to become one of the most outstanding presidents of the United States of America.
The amazing victories of Lincoln and Churchill over depression show that it is possible to overcome long-term despair and live a happy and successful life.
Dr Neil Nedley, M.D., designer of the highly successful Nedley Depression Recovery Programme, has shown many people how to combat major depression and lead a life filled with satisfaction and purpose. Dr Nedley answers your questions about depression:
- Do I have depression?
- Is there a link between depression and bipolar?
- Why do I have depression?
- How can I deal with depression?
- Are there any effective natural remedies for depression?
Identifying your needs: Do I have depression?
When things in life just don’t seem to be going right, the first step towards improving is identifying your personal needs. Today when we say, “I feel depressed,” we are often referring to a feeling of sadness about a specific problem or issue.
When we suffer some kind of trauma, it is only natural to experience feelings of loss, sadness and grief.
Five cases in which you could expect to feel loss, sadness and grief:
- Loss of job
- Death of a loved one
- Broken relationship
- Occasional “off” days
But you may be relieved to find out that this is not the same as “clinical depression.” These feelings are described as situational depression – with the passing of time, they will eventually ease.
Concerned that you or a friend may be experiencing depression?
Like Lincoln and Churchill, you too can conquer depression and lead a purposeful life! Click here to listen to Dr Neil Nedley as he discusses his highly successful Depression Recovery program!
What to do about depression
It’s important to remember that no two cases of depression are exactly alike; every situation is unique.
Major depression rarely develops as a result of one thing. Normally there are a number of things that finally lead to depression. The best treatment plan will not only look at addressing the way you feel, but will look at why you feel that way, and what you can do about it.
Even without medical training, you may be able to tell whether or not you are experiencing major or minor depression.
However, an experienced health professional will help you to take the next steps in identifying why you feel the way you do, and working towards a sustainable solution.
If you are taking any medication for depression, you should not stop taking this. Any changes to your medication should be directed by your doctor.
Why do I feel depressed and worthless?
Neil Nedley, M.D., identifies ten ‘hit’ categories as possible causes of depression. Some examples of categories and causes are:
➢ Family history of depression or suicide
➢ Suffered sexual abuse
➢ Low in omega-3 fat, folic acid or vitamin B
➢ Diet high in cholesterol, saturated fat and sugar
➢ Absence of social support
➢ High lead levels
➢ Not on a regular exercise programme
7. Medical condition
➢ Heart disease

How to find why you personally are experiencing depression:
Dr Neil Nedley has identified 51 causes of depression, and these are divided into 10 “hit” categories.
• Look at the list of causes and see which apply to you. Some may require medical advice and/ or tests, eg. a blood test will help you to determine if you have elevated cholesterol levels
• One or more cause(s) in each category counts as one “hit”
• Two causes in the same category only count as one “hit”
• Four or more “hits” are likely to lead to major depression or another mental disorder
There are some singular causes of depression, where only a single hit in a single category leads to major depression. These are:
• Thyroid disease
• Parkinson’s disease
• Uncontrolled diabetes
• Certain strokes
• Chronic insomnia
• Chronic low carbohydrate diet
• Chronic low tryptophan diet
• Chronic complete absence of social support
• Very high toxin levels
