Is It A Chemical Imbalance?

You’ve heard it.  I’ve heard it. “Depression is a chemical imbalance.”

 

Over the past several years, I’ve read studies and articles that have questioned this.

 

Kelly Brogan, MD, wrote “A Mind of Your Own” (2016)  She says:

 

“…not a single study has proven that depression is caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain.  Depression is merely a symptom, a sign that something is off balance or ill in the body that needs to be remedied” (Brogan, 2).

 

I have found this to be true over and over again as I coach people.  I found it to be true in my own life.

 

If now is not a good time to dive into this book, then allow the preceding thought to mull around in your mind.  Let it take root.  Let it allow you to begin to question why one in four women in their forties and fifties uses psychiatric drugs and why depression is a grossly misdiagnosed and mistreated condition today (ibid, 2).

 

It matters!

Hi!
I'm Coach Mandy-Marie

In 2010, I was overwhelmed with depression and stressed about what the future held. I knew there HAD to be answers.

I found them. These answers became solutions to facing my fears, replacing self-sabotage, and embracing my worth that have set me free to move through personal and parenting challenges. I’ve been teaching these solutions to clients for 10 years.

I want the same for you!
