Avoid Depression

PDF page

It is no surprise that when preparing for a crisis and thinking about how dire things could get, varying degrees of hopelessness and depression can easily set in. I think the fear of depression or thoughts of doom and gloom are often the reason why so many people choose to put their head in the sand and avoid the topic altogether. If you’re on our website, then you already know that pretending nothing bad could ever happen is not going to fix anything, but rather put your family at a higher risk.

However, this doesn’t make those of us with the prepper mindset immune to experiencing depression. Let’s face it, for the most part our motivation stems from the fear, or realization that life ain’t a box of chocolates because frankly, in our world, in the here and now, that is just not possible. With that being said, I wanted to talk to you about a natural mineral that helps fight depression, ADD, ADHD and bi-polar disorder. This mineral is lithium orotate and is needed in the body, just like sodium, potassium and calcium.

It is often used in allopathic medicine to address depression and anxiety and is different from the pharmaceutical forms, which include lithium citrate and lithium carbonate, and are often related to negative side effects.

This essential trace mineral, while lithium orotate is only needed in a very small amount, is still crucial, playing a major role in health by fighting chronic disease, tumors, compromised immune systems and depression.

During a nine-year study conducted in 27 Texas counties where the water contained lithium levels between 70-170 micrograms, analytics showed a 50% decrease in incidents of rape, homicide, suicide, drug abuse and other criminal behavior as compared to time periods when the water didn’t contain lithium.

Additionally, animals also need lithium. A study performed on farm animals consisted of removing lithium from their diet that resulted in the animals developing chronic degenerative disease, weakened immune systems, and increased occurrences of tumors and cysts and a decrease in nursing mothers’ milk. Thus proving this micronutrient is essential to overall good health in humans and animals alike.

With this beneficial trace mineral being so simple to take in supplement form, it is an ideal choice to have in your survival arsenal to help you avoid or overcome bouts of depression and anxiety.
