TRANSCRIPT: Depression ADHD Aspergers
Well, about three years ago, my mom died and I was on antidepressants for about a year and a half, spiraling down hill and it’s not something that I wanted to stay on forever. My insurance was going up and I didn’t want to remain on that forever. I wanted something else to take its place and somebody suggested trying Laminine and that I might be able to get the same results through that and I noticed the changes almost immediately and I was actually able to wean myself off of the antidepressants and use the Laminine instead and I think I feel a lot better. I feel a lot healthier. I don’t get headaches. There were a lot of side effects from the antidepressant that Laminine didn’t have.
So you noticed the change almost instantly?
I’d say within about a day or two I noticed the change, yes.
How do you feel now?
Now I feel great! I’ve got a lot of energy. I was taking naps in the middle of the day. I just didn’t seem to have the energy to get housework done and I have a lot more energy and a lot more clarity, more focus. I’m more even keeled on my moods. I’m certainly not feeling as blue as I was before. I feel like I can handle life now and I don’t have to depend on a drug to do it.
I hear Laminine has also helped with other members of your family?
Yes, my son who was diagnosed with Aspergers and ADHD about three years ago. He was on medication recommended by his doctor that had side effects that were almost as bad as the reaction to ADHD and Aspergers. We had to take him off that medication. The mood swings were so high, we just couldn’t deal with it. Since a friend of mine was trying it with their children, I thought “if it works for them and increases their focus and moods, maybe it will work with a child with Aspergers and ADHD” so I gave him just one dosage a day and that had an immediate affect. He was focused in school. He didn’t have any more mood swings. His moods were more even keeled. It used to be that he’d have tantrums two to three times a day. The same thing you deal with with a two or three year old. We’re talking about an eight or nine year old. The mood swings went away. More even keeled. Focused on his school. He was a different person all together and with Aspergers, children usually don’t talk to strangers very often and people that know him now know that he is actually looking them in the eye. He’s talking to them. His whole personality has changed.
I teach an acting class and he wanted to be a part of it and he’s talking to people and it’s brought a new person out of him.
