It seems that these days prescription drug dependencies are an epidemic. I have a girlfriend that suffers from gripping anxiety and depression and has an addiction to Xanax and a couple of other Anti Depressants. 15 years ago when she first started experiencing panic attacks I couldn't understand it and advised her on breathing techniques and positive thinking. I couldn't wrap my head around what she was going through as it seemed to come out of nowhere over night. You probably remember Tom Cruise's interview a few years back with Matt Lauer where he debated psychiatric treatment as a pseudo science and contended that these medications only mask the problem. Though, I think Tom is a whackado himself these days, Does positive thinking and mind over matter have the ability to heal without medication?
I personally believe in Quantum Physics, The Law of Attraction and the power of positive thinking, but then again, I don't suffer from depression and anxiety.
