Depression: Finding The Root Causes in Meridian ID

Functional Medicine Meridian ID Depression Finding The Root Causes

Are you battling depression in Meridian ID no matter what you do?

  • Tried multiple medications with little to no success
  • Endless counseling hoping for a breakthrough
  • Putting a smile on even though inside you are a train wreck

If that sounds like you, know that you are not alone. Depression impacts nearly 1 in 12 individuals. While the majority do receive some kind of treatment, many do not get the desired results. This leads to one therapy after another.

One reason for this is due to low serotonin not being the cause of depression despite pharmaceutical companies pushing this. This was a theory that was never proved.

If this is your first time to hear this then you may then be wondering what could it be?


Depression A Multifactorial Process In Meridian ID

Depression at its core is really broken down into altered connectivity and brain inflammation.

Basically, depression is a brain-based issue.

The questions that should be asked are how the brain connects and/or what is impacting it from connecting appropriately as well as factors that may drive brain-based inflammation. Identifying what these factors are is essential to having a successful treatment plan.

First, what are some things that impact brain connectivity

  • Concussion
  • Emotional Abuse/Bullying
  • Chronic Stress
  • Hypothyroid
  • Diabetes
  • Relationships
  • Hormones
  • Exercise

Realistically, we could add many more things and many of the factors that impact brain connectivity will also drive brain-based inflammation and vice versa.

As you can tell though, there are a lot of different factors that may be impacting your depression.
