Amanda Webster: Beat Depression On Your Own Terms!

“These medical professionals do get kickbacks for writing you these prescriptions.  They’re not going to make anything if you change your diet.  That’s not helping them.  They don’t want you to heal, because if you heal yourself, you’re not going to go to them anymore. ”

An Inspiring Story Of Beating Depression  

Have you or anyone you know tried medication and other methods to deal with your mental illness and found that it hasn’t worked, or even made it worse?  Certified Mind-Body wellness coach, Amanda Webster, offers so much incredible insight and inspiration on the “What’s Up Down There?” podcast this week as she shares her experience with dealing with and overcoming depression.

What We Eat Affects Our Mental Health

The majority of serotonin is produced in your gut, so if you are not your body is not getting the nutrient it needs, you will not produce the serotonin that could help you feel better.  You need to give your body the proper tools to operate at the optimum level.  If you feed yourself garbage, you will probably feel that way.

“If you’re not feeding your body, it’s going to affect your emotions and anger is an emotion.”

Mindfulness and Loving Yourself

Another thing that helped Amanda overcome her depression was practicing mindfulness.  One interesting way to practice mindfulness and self-love that she brought up was masturbation.  It is considered a taboo topic, but we should not be ashamed of something natural that we can do to make ourselves feel good.  Amanda spoke about this is a pretty humorous way.

“Masturbation has probably saved a couple of lives for me because I am positive that if I were not able to double-click my mouse, I probably would’ve killed someone.  Masturbation saves lives, my friend”

Go more in-depth into these topics and so much more in this inspiring and inspiring episode of “What’s Up Down There?” as host, Laurie Seely, speaks with Amber Webster. 

Key Points:

• Gut health does affect mental health.
• How the death of Linkin Park singer, Chester Bennington, affected Amanda.
• What large farms are really doing with cancerous tumors from chickens.
• The true meaning of the USDA Certified Organic label.
• The influence pharmaceutical companies have on doctors and medical schools.
• Masturbation as an act of self-love and mindfulness.
• What you eat has an effect on your emotions.
• “Fat-free” products used to distract from products full of sugar.

Amanda Webster is a certified Mind-Body Wellness coach who has beat depression on her own terms. After being guinea pigged on medications for years, succumbing to addiction and self-harm and nearly taking her life on the ledge of a Canadian hotel room, she realized that she needed to make some changes in her life if she wanted to give herself the best chance possible at healing. Now, she is being decertified as having a Serious Mental Illness (SMI) by the very professionals that told her it was impossible.  When she was struggling and wanted to get referrals to other specialists to get to the source of what was causing her mental illness, she realized the incentives doctors had for not giving her the referrals she wanted.
