Chronic depression plagues many in the United States. It strikes more than 17 million people, more than heart disease and cancer. The pharmaceutical companies earn billions of dollars a year from profits from depression medications. Yet the number of people battling depression continues to rise. An estimated 60 percent of patients continue to have depression and an estimated 15 percent attempt suicide. Why?
For many, chronic depression is a deeper issue. It's an issue that affects our bodies as a whole, depression is often a signal that something is missing or not balanced in our bodies. With Nutrition Response Testing, many patients find an answer to their chronic depression. I believe there is answer to these numbers. I believe that chronic depression is a large issue, it should be dealt with by examining the body as a whole.
If one part of our body is ailing, it sends off multiple signals throughout our body. Often these signals are never heard as we ignore or try to placate it with prescription drugs. What if we are just missing the core problem?
For example, imagine if your ankle is not working properly. It will make your foot and leg overcompensate. You may start by walking with a limp, eventually your body will adjust and your gait will seemly be fine. Yet later, you will notice back pain and headaches. You will begin to wonder why you have these problems, as you may have forgotten the ankle injury you had a long time ago. While you may think these have nothing to do with your ankle, it does. Most doctors will not see this. Unless you fix your ankle, you will continue to have medical problems for years. It may often be the same way with depression.
