More than 17 million Americans experience depression at some point in their lives. If you're suffering from depression, there's a good chance that you're thinking about trying Traditional Chinese Medicine. We can help alleviate some of the symptoms of depression.
Below are a few treatments that can help;
Depression Acupuncture Treatment
Acupuncture works by retraining our brains to heal and rewire in a desirable way. Acupuncture stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, which is a part of our central nervous system that can counteract the fight or flight response. Stimulating this system produces a feeling of relaxation and calm. With acupuncture your brain will counter the effects of depression by learning to trigger the parasympathetic nervous system.
Chinese Herbal Medicine
The composition of Chinese herbal formulas are based on the individual patients' symptoms. They are also designed to treat complex diseases such as depression. Many Chinese herbal formulas contain molecules that act on the pathological systems of the brain, such as monoamine neurotransmissions, hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal (HPA) axis, neurotrophic factor brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) cascade, and glutamate transmission.
