    I went to PubMed, and found:
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/...
    That's just a crosssectional study

    Sorry, I don't have time to search the whole of PubMed,
    but roughly 80% of depressed patients who go on an exercise regimen report decreased symptoms

    in comparision, all forms of psychoanalysis seem to give about 60% of people some help.

    Try google, if you don't believe me -- MayoClinic, among others is recommending exercise.  That's because it has been scientifically validated.

    Now kindly apologize for your kneejerk reaction.

    •  I'm sorry you're wrong. (0+ / 0-)

      I'm sorry you're wrong, but it just doesn't help. Not me or anyone I know.

        --seriously, if I can cite reputable sources, they trump your anecdotal evidence.

        Quick question though: Did anyone you knew actually keep to the exercise regimen for more than a week?
