As shown in a recent episode of Total Bellas, Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella visited a shaman to help Bryan with his depression issues. The couple was dealing with marital issues and they were seeking peace, at that point. Since the episode aired, a lot of fans asked Daniel Bryan to talk more about depression. After all, he is considered to be a wise and inspiring person who is the right person to share the knowledge.
In a recently released video, he did acknowledge the idea and talked about the issue. Before going into a detailed experience, Daniel Bryan spoke a bit about it and mentioned two books to fans that could help the fans. Lost Connections: Uncovering the Real Causes of Depression – and the Unexpected Solutions by Johann Hari and The End of Mental Illness by Daniel Amen are the books that Bryan mentioned.
The fans asked if it’s okay to go and see a Shaman. In response, Daniel Bryan the process was helpful for him for a particular reason. Those fans who feel the same way can go visit a shaman for sure. While speaking about it, the leader of the YES nation also spoke about dealing with mental depression, over the years. So he really needed some peace.
Here’s more from what the former world champion had spoken,
Fans had asked Brie if they should go see a shaman and this was Bryan’s response:
“I think you should go see somebody that you connect with to talk to about depression and understands it,” Bryan said. “Why the shaman specifically works for me is because I have a natural guard up against therapists. I’ve never gone to a therapist where I’ve felt in tune with the therapist.
When I went to the Shaman — it’s weird because we’ve got cameras around, but midway through, even before we went into the sweat lodge, I wasn’t even thinking about the cameras being there.
“That struck me very differently than any therapist that I’ve ever gone to, but some people relate well to therapists, so it’s important to find a mode of healing that works for you. That doesn’t mean you’ll be magically healed or anything like that, I still struggle with depression.
You may still struggle with depression, but you have to keep trying, not only for yourself but for the people you love.” (courtesy wrestlingINC.com)
Daniel Bryan won the World Heavyweight Championship in 2014 at the main event of WrestleMania 30. At that point, he was on top of his career. But within just two weeks of achieving the gold, he lost his father. Within a few weeks, he was diagnosed with a neck injury and then had vacated the championship that caused a mental trauma for him.
Moving forward, WWE doctors disqualified Daniel Bryan from competing in the ring and he had to retire back in 2016. Pro-wrestling always remain the first love for him which caused yet another mental pressure for him. Later he overcame the odds and came back to action in 2018, setting an example.
