A growing number of patients are expressing suffering from depression on a more chronic level. It’s gotten to the point where 1 in 6 Americans are taking medication to alleviate feeling sad, anxious, stuck, or unable to focus or sleep. And the age we’re putting children on anti-depressants and medications continues to slide downwards. What if everything we thought we knew about depression—and how to heal from it—was wrong?
Today’s guest helps to answer this question as well as discuss her new book “Healing Depression without Medication: A Psychiatrist’s Guide to Balancing Mind, Body, and Soul”. She goes into the power of the placebo, debunks the idea that depression is a neurochemical imbalance, and provied evidence-based holistic methods for depression that include breathwork, meditation, yoga, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), Mind-Body Medicine, nutrition, and exercise.
