        Banish Depression Forever-Without Drugs!


Feeling depressed...?

1. Sad or "empty" mood...

2. Feeling hopeless, helpless, pessimistic or guilty...

3. Fatigue, loss of interest in activities, including sex...

4. Eating or sleeping problems...

6. Irritability, increased crying...

7. Difficulty concentrating or making decisions...

8. Thoughts of suicide...

I am a psychologist, have been practicing for over 30 years and have been treating depressed patients
during my entire career. I treat patients just like you: Those who have difficulty getting out of bed and who no longer get any pleasure out of life.

After successful treatment, sometimes many patients still have times when they think they are finally 'cured', only

to be disappointed because the depression returns. However, I have found one key to getting your life back after having a relapse.

It is the use of a new generation of advanced self-help therapies that are used in your own home.

Doctors and hospitals have been using them for years but they have largely been "hidden" from the public.

However, because of their proven results, these fantastic tools are no longer confined to use mainly by doctors.

People just like you can now discover their amazing benefits!

Depression is chronic and the use of proven self-help kits can multiply the positive effects of medication exponentially!

 In some cases, you may even be able to reduce or eliminate it altogether.

There are many of these depression self-therapy kits (STKs) available. The best, however, are self-contained

and come in many formats: DVD, CD, MP3, audio, workbooks, e-books, video, online etc.

-They are comprehensive and you use them in your home. They are like having your own private therapist 24/7
and are a godsend to some.


-STKs are self-paced and you are always in full control.

-No dangerous side-effects, no outside huge doctor bills...


AND your 24/7 therapist even comes with an unconditional guarantee,

something you won't get from any doctor or counselor!

These groundbreaking tested STKs provide a proven approach that you can start benefiting

from instantly. By using these cutting-edge STKs, your symptoms will no longer rob you of

your zest and vitality!

However, you can be sure only by picking the RIGHT program.



Read the brochures carefully and only pick an STK that shows you how to alert yourself

to things you need to handle differently. The program you choose should meet YOUR

unique needs-one size does not fit all.

Your STK should demonstrate what unique combination of actions will enable YOU to

keep your zest for life, even though you are vulnerabe to depression.

The Truth: 75% of people who recover will suffer a relapse sometime.

This is important because most approaches to treatment only work in the short-term.

Simply eliminating your low mood often isn't enough because long-term depression is

often a symptom of what's wrong in your life.

If you only treat the symptom, the reasons why you originally got depressed will remain.

So, eventually you'll get depressed again unless you make some changes.


Consumer FAQs:

Q:  Should I use a self-therapy kit (STK) before consulting a therapist?

A:  I think its best to start your own treatment first-with the kit. After all, after

successfully completing it, you may not need counseling or medication.

Q:  What if I want to consult a counselor anyway? Can I use the kit as well?

A:  Using an STK while in treatment will likely boost both the speed and quality of your

recovery several times over!

Q:  Where do I find STKs?

A:  Look on the internet. Search for "self-help" "self-improvement,"

"anxiety, depression self-help." Study the brochures and make sure the content is cutting-edge.

Q:  What about the guarantee?

A:  Be sure there is an unconditional guarantee. If necessary, just follow the simple

directions to claim it. Its easy and fast.

Q:  What are the credentials of those who author these kits?

A:  They are designed by both mental health professionals and first-rate

non-professional experts who have personal experience in solving the problem for themselves;

after all, there is no better testimonial than ones own personal success!

The key: Read any brochure carefully. Be certain that the STK contents

will boost the quality and dramatically shorten the time of your recovery.


Important: Pick an STK that reveals...

1. to treat the root causes of your depression

2. ...why medication and counseling don't prevent relapses

3. not to just be depression-free, but how to have a zest for life

4. ...which specific attitudes make your depression last and how to change

them instantly

5. ...Foolproof ways to handle people who drain you of energy

7. to improve your mood for the long term

8. ...the specific herbs and vitamins which have been a godsend to depression

If you use the best STK possible, you'll get...

1. ...a glowing zest for life

2. ...foolproof control over your depression-causing triggers

3. which will virtually eviscerate the power others have over your moods

4. ...instant relief in the event of relapse

5. ...surges in energy to enjoy family and friends

6. ...a lifelong boost in self-esteem

7. ...And, last, but not least, an Unconditional Money-Back Guarantee,
which virtually guarantees that you'll be satisfied!
