Is it possible to eliminate depression? What of genetics; the predisposition to depression by virtue of family genes? What of bio-chemistry; imbalance in neurotransmitters in the brain, or in hormonal regulation?
At The Neuroscience Team of Baltimore (TNT), we believe that depression is highly treatable, and, with a little perseverance, can be reduced. Although each patient’s response rate is different, and past results do not always predict future, our approach is to creatively apply the most current methods to bring improvement in mood and to change patterns of negative thinking into positive ones.
It is important to enhance awareness on the paradigm shift taking place in mental health: studies since 2000 are repetitively reinforcing the fact that brain inflammation plays a huge role in promoting depression. This is why diet, lifestyle, and supplements, can influence recovery, among other interventions. Based on these studies, leading researchers claim that the “Biochemical Imbalance” theory is no longer the working hypothesis in mental health, and is being replaced with the Autoimmune, Inflammatory model.
At The Neuroscience Team, we feel both body and mind must be helped, to reach successful control of depressive mood. As creatures, we function integratively, thus to improve, the problems must likewise be addressed in integrative ways.
Enduring change depends upon a change in cognitive-behavioral patterns as well, and Dr. Newman’s text, “How to Eliminate Depression and Negative Thinking” could be supportive of the process of change. This easy-to-read text conveys comprehensible explanation of the Mind-Body process of depression, the importance of integrative thinking, and a practical program towards happiness.
