Today I thought that I’d give you a very general overview of the physical causes of depression. Most people aren’t aware of the vast number of contributors to depression at the physical level.
I explain them as 4 main types of imbalances. Let me reveal them below.
- Hormonal Imbalances; e.g. thyroid, adrenal, testosterone -in men, progesterone & estrogen- in women.
- Nutrient Deficiencies; e.g. vitamin B6, zinc, copper, omega 3 & sometimes omega 6
- Adverse Reactions to Food; e.g. food allergies, food sensitivities, and blood sugar imbalances.
- Toxins; e.g. heavy metals, pesticides, solvents.
There’s a few imbalances that don’t ‘quite’ fit into this model. The Mauve Factor and Histamine/methylation imbalances are two further contributors to depression and other mental health disorders. These are often the cause of depression that runs in families- so they definitely are important.
If you’re suffering from depression right now, and can’t seem to get to the bottom of it with counseling, therapy or using antidepressants- I highly recommend that you investigate the possibility that there is a physical reason for your depression. Most of these can be treated easily, and naturally when you know how. If you’ve been burdened with depression and anxiety from a young age this is also applicable to you.
I am writing this blog because most people that are suffering from depression, have not had these physical causes ruled out. It is expensive to do all of the tests to rule them out (and a lot of doctors don’t know how to do it), but there is a strategy that can be used to narrow down what is causing your depression. Want to know the strategy?
I give you it in my free depression report. I provide you with 7 selfhelp questions that can reveal what the physical cause is. The free report tells you how to interpret your answers too. You can get your copy of my depression report by visiting www.breakingfreefromdepression.com/free-report.
All the best.
