I suffer from depression, and thought from the literature that excessive sweating might help. Just what drugs generate a fever without too many unwanted side effects? I was wondering about sulfa pills, for instance.
You do not want to induce a fever, I am manic depressive(OCD, PTSD, anxiety, panic attacks, insomnia, paranoia... etc) I am 41, and you are talking about inducing a fever to help with your condition?
Where did you read it so I can inform myself as well, with all due respect.-
No offense, you must be young.
Do you want to help yourself, truly? if so read what I have provided
Now supplements like vitamin B12 ( aslo B1,2 &3) helps with depression, omega 3 ( salmon oil) flaxseed oil, , folic acid, and inositol , I take them.,
serotonin is made in the body and brain from an amino acid 5-Hydroxy Tryptophan (5-HTP), which in turn in made from another amino acid called tryptophan. Both can be found in the diet; tryptophan in many protein rich foods such as meat, fish, beans and eggs, while the richest source of 5-HTP is the African Griffonia bean. Just not getting enough tryptophan is likely to make you depressed; people fed food deficient in tryptophan became rapidly depressed within hours.
There is a direct link between mood and blood sugar balance. All carbohydrate foods are broken down into glucose and your brain runs on glucose. The more uneven your blood sugar supply the more uneven your mood.
Chromium, this mineral is vital for keeping your blood sugar level stable because insulin, which clears glucose from the blood, can't work properly without it. In fact it turns out that just supplying proper levels of chromium to certain depressed patients can make a big difference
Dark green vegetables such as spinach and peas are high in folate. It is a substance that has a key role in the production of serotonin. Eat fresh vegetables, because canned versions usually have lower nutritional value. Legumes are also rich in folate.
Chickpeas are rich in iron, vitamin E and fiber. To prepare a simple snack, mix a can of drained and rinsed chickpeas with some minced garlic, fresh lemon juice, and olive or canola oil in your blender. You can add salt, pepper or other spices that you prefer.
Exercise (if you are able)... running will, riding a bike, etc... cause you to sweat in a healthy way... endorphines(they are produced by the pituitary gland and the hypothalamus during exercise) and dopamines are released and also help with depression.
You want to win, you do not induce a fever with side effects, you take the bull by the horns, and start doing things to really help yourself, I care this is why I gave you the best I could... now it is up to you, but a fever?
Again, where did you read it so I can read it and we can comment on that pardon me I do not want to say out of respect to YOU.OK
