There are new reports being published that validate what Naturopathic Medicine has been saying for some time now; you must treat depression, anxiety, sleep disorders and other mental health challenges by addressing their root cause- not by trying to increase chemicals in the brain, like serotonin. The science of depression has been influenced a great deal by the advent of antidepressant medications such as Prozac. Unfortunately, research is now showing that antidepressant medications don’t treat the cause of depression, and can in some cases make the problem worse.
About three years ago, I began researching, writing and lecturing to physicians on one of the underlying causes of depression- Sickness Syndrome Depression– which is best treated without the use of pharmaceutical medications. I have personally watched patients overcome depression, anxiety, sleep disorders and bipolar disorder by treating the underlying cause of these conditions which involves decreasing inflammation in the body and in the brain. There is a five-step plan to manging Sickness Syndrome Depression that you can try for yourself.
Learn more about the causes, symptoms, and ways you can heal yourself from mental health challenges at the official Sickness Syndrome website.
I was invited by the World Congress of Anti-Aging Medicine to present this information to physicians at the Dubai Congress on Anti-Aging and Aesthetic Medicine on this topic November 9th, 2008 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
