Fight Depression With This Bedtime Modification

  Depression is one of the most common and most devastating medical problems physicians like myself deal with. 16 million Americans are diagnosed with clinical depression. And many more suffer under the veil of depression without an actual diagnosis.  Over the past few decades, we’ve discovered a great deal on the underlying causes of depression.  Essentially, it boils down to imbalances of essential neurotransmitters (like serotonin, dopamine, acetylcholine and more).  And while we know the mechanism that causes depression, we’re still figuring out what causes the imbalance to occur in the first place.  I’m of the opinion, that most cases of depression can be traced back to a number of factors.  My research has shown me environmental factors play a...

Why You'll Never Trust These Medicines Again

Every single year, millions upon millions of dollars are spent advertising one class of drugs as the end-all-be-all solution for mental health problems.Leading the way in overall prescription rates are: antidepressants. These drugs are meant to help address chemical imbalances in the brain, as well as set a happier calmer mood and rewire the brain.While a decent number of people are able to take these drugs and make them work, millions more find themselves hopping from one pill to the next without ever finding the one that works for them.
