Do you know that depression is considered as an autoimmune disease?
Actually depressed people may have a genetic sensitivity for depression, this is true. But depression can be treated and in a better way than just taking pils. Yes, as depression is a result of stress. After a while, stress will induce cortisol resistance and just promote inflammation in your brain. The consequences? Neurotoxicity, impair neurotranmission, lack of neurotransmitters like serotonine, dopamine and norepinephrine that will promote the symptoms of depression affecting the mood of course, but also the appetite, the libido and social relationship. At the end, the neuro-endocrino-immunine system will be imbalanced and vicious circles engaged with poor response to medication. A very effective way to treat major depression is bioelectronic medicine like non invasive vagus nerve stimulation or transcranial magnetic stimulation. Although this may take some time to see the results. But when the results are there they are good, means remission of the depression. Non invasive vagus nerve stimulation helps!
