May is Mental Health Awareness Month. The heart of AllCare is that all of our patients are able to live a healthy life and feel connected to those around them. We don’t want someone to feel like they are walking through life alone. If you are not feeling that connection with others or are dealing with sadness or other symptoms of depression, we want to help you.
Depression can be the result of many factors and isn’t a simple, one-size-fits-all medical condition. For some, it can be a lifelong battle that requires ongoing treatment. The causes of depression vary from person to person but can occur due to biochemical changes (neurotransmitters in the brain can be out of balance), genetics, seasonal affective disorder, changes or trauma in one’s life, and hormones.
Throughout your lifetime, your body is prone to experience many physical changes. These changes can be due to a myriad of reasons, including fluctuations in hormone levels due to aging, pregnancy/childbirth, menopause, thyroid issues, eating disorders, stress, and more. These hormonal fluctuations can have a big impact on one’s mental health.
In January, we posted a blog with tips on ways to improve your mental health this year. If you are still experiencing sadness and depression even with trying these suggestions, there are more options. There is hope! At AllCare, we offer a variety of services to help with one’s mental health, varying from Talk Therapy to TMS Therapy.
If medications have not helped you deal with your depression, we can offer you other solutions. One of these solutions is NeuroStar TMS Therapy. This type of therapy uses magnetic pulses to stimulate nerve cells in your brain. It is a painless process with no effect on your alertness or memory.
Take a moment right now to click through this assessment and see if TMS Therapy might be right for you.
For those people who have not experienced relief from their depression symptoms via antidepressant medicines alone, our TMS Therapy—a transcranial magnetic stimulation treatment option—offers hope. In fact, one study found that 50-60% of patients reported that this type of therapy has helped their depression (even when prescription medications had not helped) and over 30% reported that their symptoms were gone completely.
If you are looking for hope and another option as you deal with symptoms of depression, reach out to us here at AllCare. We want to connect with you and help you find hope once again! Schedule a consultation with us today!
