Depression in Chinese Medicine
Depression is one of the most commonly seen disorders. It is estimated to affect roughly 350 million people throughout the world, both in developed countries as well as developing countries. The WHO assesses that by the year 2020 depression would be the second most influencing cause of debilitated quality of life. Antidepressant medication side effects include: Sluggishness, drowsiness, nausea, constipation, diarrhea, increased/loss of appetite, weight gain, loss of sexual appetite, blurred vision, insomnia and depression. From one aspect, Dr. Robidoux summarizes a 5 year long research carried out at “The Affiliated Brain Hospital” in Nanjing which has proven and confirmed that acupuncture has important advantages in treatment of depression when compared with SSRi without showing any negative side effects.
She also brings about effective treatment protocols and approaches to treat the syndrome causing depression and other psychosomatic disorders such as OCD and anxiety. From another aspect, Dr. Robidoux presents a classical approach to understand the mechanism of the body and mind causing depression from different internal and external aspects. She covers the diagnostic methods and the treatments to reverse the progression and resolve the symptoms successfully.
By providing a short introduction of the two main classical Chinese medicine approaches, Dr. Robidoux increases the understanding of the body and mind connection in depression to bring a clear understanding of the effective treatment protocol for different patient types.
