While it often goes undiagnosed, depression is the most treatable form of mental illness. A reported 340 million people suffer from depression worldwide. If you are one of those affected, we want you to know you are not alone.
We take an integrative approach to healing depression, rather than just putting a Band-Aid on the symptoms. If you suffer from clinical depression, which is not associated with or affected by external situations, there is a natural path to healing.
How We Approach Depression
We take the approach of finding what life event, any medication you’re taking, or nutritional deficiencies might have caused or are causing your depression. We also look deeper to rule out any other serious causes, such as certain typed of cancer, or infections such as AIDS, mono, viral hepatitis, or neurological disorders.
Lifestyle modifications we often recommend include:
- Regular exercise
- Checking your medications
- Eliminating caffeine
- CranioSacral Therapy
- Talking with a therapist
- B Vitamins
- Fish Oil
- St. John’s wort
