Depression has become one of the major health problems in recent years. With the advent of technology, such as the internet, email, faxes, and wireless devices, we are being forced to work harder than ever before, to be on call longer, while at the same time, to take less vacation and personal time. Now we are in lockdown. Catastrophic world events have only exacerbated this, spurning a record number of new cases of depression. Unfortunately, it is only predicted to get worse. In 2002, almost 20 million Americans have been diagnosed with some form of clinical depression. Today, according to The World Health five of the ten leading medical problems worldwide will be stress-related.

Most mental health professionals over the years have seen depression purely as a state of mind. In the last four decades, research has indicated that there are many forces at play that ultimately lead to depression.

Simultaneously, the use of nutritional products and herbal preparations by the general public is one of the fastest-growing segments in consumer spending and in health care. In 1993, Dr. David Eisenberg, a professor at Harvard University, published the first of two important studies showing that one in three Americans had used some form of alternative medicine.

Recent medical studies have indicated that various non-invasive approaches have the ability to bring short-term, and, in many cases, permanent relief from this debilitating emotional disorder. Research in recent years has also shown that depression is seldom isolated. It is generally experienced with other symptoms that might include headache, sub-clinical nutritional deficiencies, digestive problems, insomnia, and many others. These are all conditions that can be positively influenced by natural approaches.

Takeaway

Certain types of depression can be helped by nutrition therapy, herbs, amino acid supplementation, hands-on healing, exercise, specialized counseling, and coaching systems, and other approaches either alone or, when necessary, in combination with medication. As or Covid, reach out to others, use online resources, have a Zoom Party, and take long walks.
