Depression: A Natural Approach
"The improvements I saw while under Dr. Peyman’s care have been nothing short of remarkable. I have been a patient for over five months and I have never had so much individual care and complete care from any other physician, therapist, psychiatrist, or psychologist. I have a strong fear of doctors and Dr. Peyman has eased my fears completely. I trust her medical judgment completely. I have seen a decrease in all of my symptoms. Even from things I didn’t think of as symptoms I have received relief from. I have less crying spells, little to no allergies, little or no panic attacks, more energy, more optimism, less stomachaches and headaches, more positive thinking, less thoughts of pure hopelessness, and am just happier." --Valerie, treated for depression and panic disorder with homeopathic medicine.
"I lived for a long time believing that the way I felt was normal, that it was normal for me to feel the need to defend myself from everything and anyone all the time. I felt anger, impatience, irritability, stress, and antisocial in public places. I noticed improvement the first week [after starting homeopathic medicine], and on the second week I was feeling great. Now the feeling of needing to be always on guard and on defense mode is pretty much gone. I'm more relaxed with more patience. Also I feel a lot more relaxed in public crowded places; I can actually enjoy the company of people now. It's been two months now and I feel really good." --Sergio, 33 year old man treated with homeopathic medicine.
"My mood has improved tremendously. I feel really good about myself." --Taryn, 33 year old woman with anxiety, depression, and insomnia treated with homeopathic medicine and acupuncture.
Depression is a leading cause of disability in the United States among adolescents and adults ages 15-44. If you or someone you know is affected by depression, you know how much stress it can cause. These mood disorders can significantly interfere with a person’s daily activities, work, and relationships.
A variety of problems can cause symptoms of depression, including thyroid imbalances, vitamin deficiencies, and many other causes. As naturopathic doctors, we are committed to uncovering the cause of your symptoms. For most people who suffer with depression, there is no significant physical imbalance causing their symptoms. Depression can occur as a result of genetic susceptibility and stress.
Homeopathic treatment can restore better mood stability by not only providing symptomatic relief, but by actually improving stress tolerance and reducing susceptibility to disease in general. Over time, you may find that old triggers no longer cause problems for you. Homeopathic medicine can replace the need for conventional medications in most cases, by improving natural, healthy brain chemistry. These treatments can help you reach a place of remission, and improve your chances of staying in remission from depression.
There are many options for treating depression. It is essential to understand all of your options, and choose the best treatment for you.
