It’s important to get to the root cause of depression. It can really make a world of difference. Just because two people have symptoms of depression doesn’t mean they have the same causes. Check what happens in your first consultation.

Functional Medicine is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century.

By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional Medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, Functional Medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.

Now … Overcoming Depression

About Depression

Depression (known as clinical depression or major depressive disorder) is the most common mental health problem in the nation and across the globe. Everybody gets the blues from time to time. For most of us, we bounce back from these low moods and get back to enjoying our lives. For some people, however, the sense of sadness, emptiness, or hopelessness doesn’t dissipate, and it begins to affect how you think, how you feel, and how you act. When these feelings persist, this mood disorder can interfere with daily life and that can lead to psychological and physical issues.

Who Has Depression ?

Approximately 7% of the adult population. The condition is more common in females, who are twice as likely as men to suffer a depressive episode. Research shows the condition is rising most rapidly among teens and young adults. About 36% of girls will experience clinical depression during their teenage years compared to 13% of teenage boys.

One Step Ahead

Consequences Of Untreated Depression

It is estimated that nearly 2 out of every 3 people struggling with depression don’t seek or receive treatment for their condition. When left untreated, depression can ruin your life. Clinical depression increases the risk of substance abuse, destroys relationships, interferes with your ability to excel at work, and makes you more vulnerable to certain medical conditions. For example, people with depression are more likely to develop heart disease and are more likely to die following a heart attack than people without the condition. Even more troubling is the fact that depression is the cause of two-thirds of suicides.
