SEVEN KINDS OF ALCOHOLIC DEPRESSION  All of these sources of alcoholic depression are relieved with proper nutrition and food supplements...
     All of these sources of alcoholic depression are relieved with proper nutrition and food supplements; no medications required. 
    mitter depletion stemming from the unavailability of amino acids in the diet.
    Unavailability of prostaglandin E1  and inability to metabolise Omega 6 fatty acids.
    Vitamin/mineral deficiency -  In addition to poor nutrition, alcohol flushes many  nutrients from the body and reduces the body’s ability to metabolise foods properly.
    Hypothyroidism -  An under-active thyroid affecting metabolism with multiple symptoms.
    Hypoglycemia – Sugar and insulin imbalance causes cravings and dry drunk symptoms.
    Food and chemical allergies – Wheat and dairy are the most common food allergies.
    Candida-Related Complex – A yeast overgrowth in the intestine causing multiple symptoms including intense craving for alcohol and refined sugars.

Except for hypothyroidism, which requires medication, all of these sources of alcoholic depression are relieved with proper nutrition and food supplements; no medications required. Obviously, there are emotional traumas and stressors that lead to depression.  However, alcoholic depression occurs even without the outside influences of trauma and stress.  Whatever the cause, restoring the brain and body to optimal health is necessary to completely alleviate the experience of depression.

The chemical groups that regulate gene expression are critically important to the understanding of addiction and depression.  Within an hour of injecting mice with cocaine, over one hundred genes become activated.  If cocaine is used everyday, particular genes are actually inhibited from expressing proteins.  Prolonged use may render some genes over-activated for weeks and even months, whereas others become chronically inhibited.  The ingestion of this one chemical causes profound genetic alterations in the brain’s reward centers that may persist long after the drug is discontinued.  Many genes remain highly sensitized to the effects of cocaine for several weeks after the mouse was last injected.  The brain is ready and waiting for the next dose of cocaine.  The cocaine causes the epigentic chemicals to loosen the strands of DNA; priming them to be activated.

In depression, the the epigenetic influence on DNA is nearly opposite to that of cocaine abuse.  Depression appears to be the consequence of repressed gene activation in the reward centers of the brain.  Environments that are abusive will tend to make the DNA strands tightly bound; decreasing gene activation.  For example, a mouse that is not able to escape the domination of a more powerful mouse will display decreased activation in twelve hundred genes!  Depression appears to inhibit the activation of DNA in the reward centers that allow an animal to feel good.  Just as many humans are resistant to depression, about one third of the mice in the bully experiment did not manifest symptoms of depression.  The resilient group of mice did not develop the the inhibited gene expression that infected the larger depressed group.  This sizable group of genes in the reward center of higher animals is implicated in the treatment effectiveness of tricyclic antidepressants.  Some antidepressants may actually boost the brain’s natural mechanism to confer resilience.
