Natural Treatment for Depression & Major Depressive Disorder
Naturopathic medicine offers integrative, holistic, and natural treatments for depression. Helping patients achieve happiness, naturally, Dr. Cain’s focus is in homeopathic approaches to major depressive disorder, and bipolar disorder.
Depression is a serious medical illness which has affected over 17.5 million people in the United States. Everyone feels “sad” at one time or another, however those who suffer from depression, or major depressive disorder endure sometimes devastating and serious symptoms. These symptoms can impact the person’s ability to work, and take care of themselves and their families.
There are several forms of depressive disorders, including but not limited to: Major depressive disorder, persistent depressive disorder (formerly called dysthymic disorder), postpartum depression, and bipolar disorder.
There are hundreds of causes of depression, including but not limited to: trauma (post traumatic stress disorder, micro trauma), genetics, sleep dysfunction, as well as other biological, environmental and psychological factors.
There are many ways to treat depression, and it is absolutely essential to find a treatment that works for you. The standard of care is psychiatric medications, and psychotherapy. Homeopathy provides an additional alternative. After over a decade in the mental health field, I have found that a well prescribed homeopathic medicine is by far the most effective treatment I have seen for depressive disorders.
Not only is homeopathy completely safe, and FDA approved, but it is also unique in that it actually stimulates your body’s ability to heal itself. Many of my patients are able to wean down off their medications, often discontinuing them, and experiencing remission in their symptoms all together.
