Can Traditional East Asian Medicine Help My Depression?
Traditional East Asian Medicine (TEAM) has been treating depression successfully for more than 2,000 years with various combinations of acupuncture, herbal supplements, and diet modification.
Depression encompasses a broad spectrum from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) to Bipolar Disorder, and affects over 20 million Americans. For many, having depression, whether one has been diagnosed or not, can have a major impact on your life. Your depression may not only affect you, but those close to you as well.
There are many anti-depressants on the market and these drugs bring relief to millions of patients each year. These drugs unfortunately also bring with them unpleasant side effects for many patients. In addition, these drugs do not cure depression; they simply manage its symptoms.
Traditional East Asian Medicine on the other hand can treat, and in many cases cure, your depression without the side effects connected to conventional drugs. Acupuncture when combined with herbal remedies, and lifestyle modifications can help you get to the root of your depression and help to bring your body, mind, and spirit back into balance, allowing you to live the life you expect.
