ABC Acupuncture – D is for Depression
In 2013, depression was the second leading cause of years lived with a disability worldwide, behind lower back pain. In 26 countries, depression was the primary driver of disability.
Depression can vary from feeling gloomy and sad to a condition so debilitating that it is impossible to move or function without help. Initially brought on by outside factors, such as relationship breakup, loss, grief, financial difficulties, but sometimes the cause is not clear. Once in this state it’s difficult for a person to recover without help.
How can acupuncture help?
Acupuncture is believed to stimulate the nervous system resulting in the brain releasing “happy” chemicals known as endorphins and serotonin which boosts mood.
As well as treatment, your acupuncturist will usually offer support and encourage you to talk about problems and worries.
