Pills or Alternative Medicine?
Depression needs no additional introduction as we all know how present it is in our everyday lives. Millions and millions of people are depressed in the world as we speak. Most of them are usually on some kind of antidepressants with mild or severe side-effects due to everyday usage of these drugs. Moreover, these often offer either a placebo or a complete change of your personality, with mysterious effects and numerous negative side-effects. Therefore, many people pay the price of not being depressed through enduring the hardships these medications have in store. Nevertheless, more and more people have experienced relief and found a cure for their states of affairs through acupuncture. Although many look down on this approach, acupuncture has proven itself worthy numerous times, with treating different illnesses. Regardless, many still do not believe that it may cure depression as well. Often, upon experiencing the power of this method, they are proven otherwise.
The Ways of Acupuncture
First and foremost, acupuncture considers our body as a whole. This body of ours needs to have life energy flowing through it. Subsequently, there are numerous pathways through which this energy may flow. Therefore, all obstructions in these pathways cause dysfunctions in the well-being of a person in question. Finally, through piercing one's skin with acupuncture needles, the practitioner of this discipline frees the obstructed pathways, enabling free flow of energy once more.
By following this pattern and taking into consideration that depression is mostly caused by hormonal imbalance, it is easy to see what are the goals of acupuncture in this respect. Namely, it is to balance our hormonal levels once again, removing depression, sleeping disorders and many other side-effects of this imbalance.
Electroacupuncture is the type of this discipline used for these purposes. Electric energy only increases the effectiveness of this method, triggering the production and balancing of the hormones in question. The result includes absence of depression and its byproducts, headaches, fatigue, sleeping disorders, and many others.
Why Choose Acupuncture?
There are many reasons for choosing this method of treating depression. First of all, there are no side-effects in contrary to antidepressants. Acupuncture deals with the source of the problem, thereby removing the problem itself. Drugs, on the other hand, bomb our brain with different chemicals, which may be good or bad for these purposes. Additionally, while with antidepressants you are bound to taking them as long as you live, fearing that the depression will come back once you stop, acupuncture is for life. Thus, once you experience relief caused by acupuncture, your problems will not come back.
