Bel Marra Health, well known for offering high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, supports a recent report that shows the shocking link between the use of anti-depressants, and the multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical industry.
A recent medical report featured in the Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine, has shown the results of an investigation on the linkage between the use of medications for depression and multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical industry. The report has identified that these industries have focused on making the public aware of the mental health condition of depression, possibly oversimplifying its definition to increase its use by society. One may watch television and see advertisements of anti-depressants, showing a person changing from sad to happy after taking their marketed drug. These commercials are often designed to influence its viewers of the apparent immediate effect of the drug.
According to the recent medical report, the market for anti-depressants is strongly influenced not only by the need for treatment by individuals with depression, but also by the forces behind the pharmaceutical industries. The report has explained that a pharmaceutical company that sells millions of dollars’ worth of antidepressants often results in an expansion of its industry and thus these companies would welcome more cases of depression from around the world. At the same time, the authors of the report have shown that depression and other conditions associated with a change in brain function may also be due to the change in the world. For example, daily life in the 19th century is much simpler than our routine activities today.
The authors are also aware that there is a chance that drugs for the treatment of depression and other mental health conditions may actually not be needed, as seen in individuals who go on vacation in other parts of the world. Spokesperson for Bel Marra Health Dr. Victor Marchione says, “For example, people who go on hiking trips find ways of relaxing and restoring their energies in the absence of computers and cellular phones. Other people go to the beach and find that the time spent outdoors is equally helpful than taking drug formulations for their anxiety.”
The medical report did not ultimately identify whether the pharmaceutical industry has taken advantage of the situation of having depressed individuals in society. CEO of Bel Marra Health Jim Chiang says, “However, the report allows the reader to take this issue with a grain of salt and be aware that nature has its own ways of curing certain health conditions and that not all illnesses could be simply treated with medications.”
