"Depression is one of the most cancerous illnesses that one can have and while I have never thankfully experienced it, I have worked with sufferers of depression for almost 50 years. It eats away at the sufferer, constantly robbing them of necessary sleep, a positive self-image from which to sustain effort and, if left untreated long enough, can be so bad as to lead the person to feel as though they'd be better off dead. In all too many cases, they even attempt suicide.
There are numerous causes of depression and almost just as many different treatment regimes. Among the ones that would seem to carry the greater level of successes, I would include, counselling, relaxation training, rational emotive therapy, yoga and autogenic training.
First and foremost however, the depressed person requires enough energy inside their body with which to engage in any purposeful activity or treatment programme. The means that they acquire this vital energy level is by re-establishing a good sleeping pattern. Towards this end, I produced a special tape over forty years ago that has proved highly successful and which can be obtained freely from my website entitled, 'Relax with Bill'.
The tape has never been sold, nor will it ever be and I turned down a lucrative offer for its copyright sale over thirty years ago, since when over 5,000 copies have been given to poor sleepers at no cost. The tape induces sleep and should not be used whenever engaged in any precision activity that requires full alertness. Other people who are advised not to use the tape are pregnant women, persons with brain abnormalities and people who usually have very low blood pressure levels.
