The Problem of Depression
Are you suffering from Depression? According to the National Institute of Mental Health, 18.8 million American adults suffer from clinical depression and 19.1 million Americans suffer from anxiety disorders.
Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. You may have trouble doing normal day-to-day activities, and you may feel as if life isn’t worth living. It’s not something you can just snap out of. Professional help is needed.
Conventional approaches to treating depression with pharmaceuticals usually require weeks or months of experimentation with various drugs at different dosages. During this experimentation, the patient experiences physical and mental side-effects which can range from the annoying to the unbearable.
Natural Treatment for Depression
The Chinese believe that the Spirit is the most important part of a person’s constitution. When a person’s Heart is unfulfilled and their Spirit out of synch with their destiny or life’s purpose depression can be the result.
Through a comprehensive health history evaluation and detailed clinical diagnosis, we can help find the true source of the imbalances that have led to your depression. We then design and implement a natural organic treatment protocol to treat the causes and help you find a renewed purpose for life.
Chinese Medicine offers a powerful treatment alternative that addresses the true causes of depression without the dangerous side-effects that may accompany traditional psychiatric medications. Acupuncture can help transform blockages and stagnation, release traumas from the past and open up insight into new reasons for living. Carefully prescribed Chinese Herbal Medicines nourish the Heart and Spirit, clear blockages, and enhance your ability to relax.
