There are several ways to consider the subject of depression. Many people are familiar with the diagnostic category “depression” and some of it’s more specific subcategories: bipolar disorder, post-partum depression, PTSD, etc….

But beyond the label “depression” is the context of how the label is used. Is depression referenced as literally just a label for a particular biochemical condition- with specific, measurable organic patterns present and specific nutrient resources present? Or, is depression referenced as if it is a living entity: “his depression has caused him to lose two jobs, but now he is fighting it with a new medication?” 

That is what I call the demonic possession model (an isolated foreign force that is like a parasite attacking a host), and I consider it the most prevalent and yet the least likely to result in improved functionality and quality of life. Note that the vast majority of diagnostic labels are used in that way: baldness, diabetes, cancer, scurvy and so on are referenced as if they are actual physical entities that have substance and vitality like a parasitic infestation.
When someone says “I have depression,” that is a lot like saying “I am possessed by a depression” or “I am possessed by a diagnosis of depression, which is a label composed of ten letters.” It is useful to use all of those phrases in contrasting the experience of depression with some other experience, but the experience is fundamental and the label or diagnosis is secondary.

In the field of neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), we focus directly and intensely on the use of language. As a most simple labeling of the physiological diagnosing of depression, we can recognize that in a situation like post-pregnancy biochemical depletion, a mother may have a dramatic decrease in nutritional resources due to the formation of the fetus (as well as any later breastfeeding). A veterinarian would probably never say “that pregnancy gave the cow two things: a calf and a post-partum depression, which is a demonic diagnostic label which will possess her for, according to statistical averages, the next 2.25 years.”

Anyone who is extremely precise in their use of language would probably never say any of that either. Nothing gives anyone depression. The only thing that can give someone the diagnostic label depression is a particular someone: a diagnostician.

(I also consider the following to be ridiculously negligent: the use of the term “incurable” by diagnosticians who simply have no competence in a particular physiological development and thus in their ignorance reactively presume it to be itself inherently incurable, rather than humbly saying  “it’s still a poorly-understood cancer” or “it’s an unmastered illness as of now.” Note that scurvy and a long list of other poorly-understood conditions are now widely recognized as never having been incurable, even when mainstream diagnosticians religiously used the term incurable in reference to that set of symptoms for decades or centuries. See
The myth of incurable illness .)

So, what is depression? One way to define it (and precisely measure it) is as a particular set of nutritional resources (biochemicals) that are organized and utilized in a particular way. Two major focuses of treatment are clear in that model: nutritional adequacy and the neuro-physiology of metabolism (including hormonal function). The interruption of symptoms (like the suppressing of emotional sensitivity) is not a major target, because this is not an allopathic model, but a remedial model (one focused on remedy as in health promotion, not symptom suppression). Extreme cases may demand symptom suppression of course.
Now, how does NLP actually effect the biochemical processes that produce symptoms labeled by diagnosticians as depression? Competent NLP practitioners consider neurology the absolute easiest of all things to influence, re-organize, train, refine, and redirect. NLP in no way excludes any other form of treatment, such as energy medicine (acupuncture) or nutritional engineering. However, without excluding any other form of neural programming (such as acupuncture), neuro-linguistic programming not only can be used to instantly remove the voodoo curses of the modern diagnostic priesthoods and their demonic possession model, but NLP can re-program the neurology to use existing nutritional resources and existing metabolic functionality to re-organize the entire future of the organism.
In NLP, we do not demonize the demon possession model of mainstream medicine, but we do not worship it as sacred either. It is simply imprecise. We do not reject it or condemn it, but we do not celebrate it or pretend that it is more effective than it is.

An organism that is free of any isolating diagnostic curse and that is operating according to a much more functional model can then use existing resources to automatically research and implement the precise nutritional programs and linguistic programs that are best for the functioning of that organism. If there are external influences (external pressures) that depress, repress, or suppress the healthy functioning of an organism, than any story or sequence is healthy which results in a distancing from such a source or a dissolving of that particular pattern of influence.
Which is easier: to withdraw from the influence of medical practitioners of diagnostic witchcraft or to retrain them to use a more effective system? Withdrawing is typically much easier. If one simply stops chasing after them, they have no option to resist learning. Let them use the models in which they are trained. Other people will hire them. People will no longer seek out the input and guidance of MDs if the people are functioning so well because of a new neuro-linguistic organizing process that there are none of the metabolic symptoms that led to an interest in MDs.
However, withdrawing from MDs may be partial or complete. If there are resources available to fully support nutrition, then an immediate and total rejection of mainstream medical hysteria may be produced. In other cases, people may continue to interact with the licensed priesthood of the socialist economic system in order to receive financial benefits related to a particular diagnostic labeling. Once the physiological cost of interacting with MDs is no longer worth the financial gains, the natural result is that anyone who could choose would choose to avoid the risks of interacting with any automaton MDs who display a mechanical lack of sensitivity to the power of language and neuro-linguistic programming.

It is not that an NLP practitioner would be frightened by the protected institutional priesthood of MDs, nor jealously contemptuous of them. We may be respectful at times and satirically territorial at times, perhaps rather like MDs. There is no value in personal animosity toward MDs by NLP practitioners, though former patients of MDs may benefit from a period of personal animosity to make a healthy transition away from addictive co-dependency.
The MDs serve their function within their institution(s). They follow their neuro-linguistic programs with total precision. They promote their commercial interests and their institutional success is laudable.
However, the absence of a condemnation of the practices and results of MDs is certainly not a condoning of their patterns. In court cases in which civil negligence is ordered to be present and legally owed by an institution or a licensed member of an institution, MDs may eventually begin to refine their methods towards more effective practices. MDs should neither be personally threatened nor complacent about the effectiveness of other methods, like nutrition and NLP.

Now, what exactly is depression from an NLP perspective? Depression may be subjectively experienced as the behavior of grieving over something that is linguistically labeled using this model: “I should have done that but did not.” 
Until the expectation (of what should have been done) is recognized as merely an expectation, then there is the possibility of the unconscious practice of the neuro-linguistic behavior of self-depressing. Once the curse of the expectation is discontinued, then the presumptive categorizing of “what should have happened” as more important than “what actually happened” is released. In fact, what “should have happened” has absolutely no importance when recognized as merely an arbitrary moral idealism.
“What happened? I will be happy to tell you. First, I was indoctrinated with presumptive expectations about what should happen, but then something else happened instead, and then I dissolved certain patterns of interaction with those who worship those presumptive expectations. By the time I spoke with an NLP practitioner, I was already quite advanced in my process of withdrawing from unhealthy relations, but I had not recognized the extent of my inner wisdom that had been guiding me all along.”

The only people who should be depressed about the results that they should have produced but did not produce are MDs who proudly claim to have expertise in the field of depression when in fact they have none. I say that just to be dramatic and a bit silly, plus to challenge MDs to be humble.
The reality is that MDs are just as human as the rest of us. They are indoctrinated in certain expectations and in using presumptive models of language. All models of language are inherently presumptive until recognized as being mere models in language.
Indoctrination and language are essential features of all human cultures. Doctrines and indoctrination are very powerful and should be used with respect and caution. Indoctrination and doctrines and the doctors who publicize them are not intrinsically evil or sinful, and those words are themselves just doctrines (just diagnostic labels).
The negligent use of language by so many MDs is no reflection on their personal worth or their humanity. It is however an issue that may be addressed in courts through lawsuits. Certain MDs may be most negligent and targeted for lawsuits, but that is just business, not something personal. Institutions within the profession itself may be targeted for lawsuits as well.

First, those who are interested in personal responsibility for their health more than lawsuits must dramatically reduce or completely discontinue any involvement with mainstream medical hysteria, perhaps even refraining from condemning it. Numerous licensed medical practitioners are not opposed to the effective use of health promotion through basic, well-rounded primitive nutrition (epigenetics, etc), through traditional energy medicine, and through neuro-linguistic efficiency.
Once sufficiently withdrawn from those influences and sufficiently healthy (as well as financially stable), then actions may be taken to remedy the damages caused by negligence. Not all of those actions will proceed through the court system, but even just a few prominent court rulings can cause a ripple effect through the media and culture.
So, in simplest terms, a depression means a lack of pressure. When there is too much pressure, withdrawing from the sources of pressure is natural. Then, from disorientation or chaos, internal order and direction can arise to in clarity.
Spontaneous intuition is possible. In the terminology familiar to many Chiropractors, the innate intelligence of nature may flow smoothly through the organism, governing all metabolic processes, which govern all other activities of the organism.
