In a nation growing increasingly dependent on risky pharmaceutical solutions to treat depression, new research shows definitive evidence of an effective and drugless cure for depression and its related health problems
(PRWEB) June 15, 2009 -- Mental disorders are the leading cause of disability in the US and Canada for ages 15-44, according to NIMH. These statistics have caused a mounting demand to end the reliance on extensive and unreliable therapy or risky medications which have yet to prove effective. One company has announced an answer to this demand and is showing the numbers to prove it.
The answer from this company is a revolutionary treatment in mental health called Subconscious Restructuring, or SR. It is authored by Kelly Burris, PhD through 25 years of research and development and refinement. The recent studies, conducted by a growing team of "Master SR Coaches," show the process having widespread and consistently dramatic results on depression symptoms. One such study, conducted by Master SR Coach Dr. Ron Clark, has delivered an average 22% reduction in depression symptoms in just 4 hours. While another study, conducted by Master SR Coach Dr. Janis Smith accomplished an average 68% reduction in depression symptoms over a five week period. Dr Burris's company, THE Burris Life Coach is challenging these numbers against results shown by medications and traditional therapy.
According to statistics published in the Journal of Affective Disorders, prescription drugs used to treat depression achieve relief of symptoms better than a sugar pill (placebo) in only 7% of patients treated and offer no clinically significant benefit over placebos for patients with moderate or severe depression. "In contrast, the SR process produces positive, measurable results with every single patient and client."
The published medication statistics go on to state double blind placebo controlled studies uniformly reveal that in treating with a prescription drug for depression the odds of developing a drug side effect are higher than getting relief of symptoms. "This absolutely must change," states Dr. Burris. "Our studies have shown the vast majority of depression cases are a software problem (subconscious mind), not a hardware problem (brain)." Our goal is to remove unnecessary risks for those seeking mental health treatments. We are sending the message to clients and patients that they can demand real, risk free and measurable results from mental health treatments.
In response to comparisons to CBT, Dr. Burris says "It does not in any way reflect CBT and the difference is in the data. We prove what we claim to produce, and these are not observational studies." All SR studies involve three time-proven instruments with hard data generated for each study. The primary instrument is an emotional checklist which measures changes in what is considered the most significant human emotional issues.
The SR process recognizes depression as the single common denominator in virtually every behavior disorder. This includes but is not limited to obesity, anorexia, bulimia, ADD, ADHD, OCD, PTSD, anxiety and alcohol and drug addiction. There are eighteen components when measuring depression with fear, guilt and anger recognized as the most significant. "All human behavior is emotionally driven and one cannot take control of a destructive emotional state unless one understands how an emotion comes about from the deepest level of the subconscious. This is why SR is effective with the complete range of human emotion and behavior," states Dr. Burris.
