What is Depression?

Characterized by persistent feelings of sadness, anxiousness, pessimism, or worthlessness, depression is a common but serious mood disorder that affects an estimated 21 million adults in the United States every year, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. This condition negatively impacts how you feel and act and can lead to difficulties with concentration, sleeping, fatigue and sleeping too much or too little.

Depression can overtake your everyday life and make it seem like there is no escape. While depression can have a number of causes, we believe the key to treating it is identifying and addressing the issue at its source: your brain. Our emotional health is greatly influenced by our brain health, and our drug-free treatments offer an alternative to traditional mental health therapies.

What Are the Symptoms of Depression?

One in six people in the United States will experience depression at some time in their life, according to the American Psychiatric Association. The symptoms of this mood disorder vary by individual but can range from mild to severe. Depression isn’t typically diagnosed unless your symptoms have persisted for at least two weeks and are a change from how you felt before. 

The most common symptoms of depression include: 

  • Mental or physical tiredness and loss of energy
  • Sensations of guilt
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Constantly feeling worried
  • Low interest or pleasure in life
  • Changes in appetite, as well as sudden weight loss or gain
  • Lack of emotion
  • Problems concentrating or making decisions
  • A generalized slowing of cognition including memory
  • Disturbed sleeping patterns such as extreme sleep or hypersomnia, insomnia, or loss of REM rest
  • Repeated ideas of death
  • A specific strategy for committing suicide or suicide attempt 

If you’ve been diagnosed with depression and you’re looking for an alternative, drug-free way to treat your condition, we’re here to help.

Depression in Children & Young Adults

Depression symptoms in children are not as easy to identify as they are in adults. A few of the signs that a child or young adult is depressed may include: 

  • Irritability
  • Loss of appetite
  • Memory issues when none existed previously
  • Recurring nightmares and other sleep issues
  • Unusual behavior patterns, including social seclusion, hostility to others, and withdrawal from family
  • Alcohol or drug use

What Causes Depression?

Depression can have a number of causes, including challenging or traumatic life events, childhood trauma, and difficulties with physical well-being. Chronic imbalances in the brain’s chemical and electrical systems are a major cause of depression by adversely affecting the way you think and feel. While antidepressant medications can be used to reduce systems, they are generally regarded as a short-term remedy and are associated with extreme side effects. In other words, they don’t address the cause of your depression. 

We believe that you deserve better care. You are more than your symptoms, and our promise to you is that we will never treat just the symptoms. Although symptoms provide clues to aspects of your brain/body system that may be causing the problems or preventing any recovery, our drug-free approach to treating the cause of depression starts by identifying the major imbalances in the chemical and electrical systems in your brain that are influencing how you feel.

Our Alternative Approach to Treating Depression

At Unique Mind Care, we offer a drug-free, non-invasive, and scientific alternative treatment for depression to our clients in Houston. What makes us different? We use our decades of research and patient care and our state-of-the-art technology to address the underlying causes of depression and other mood disorders. 

One of the first steps in our treatment process begins with an intensive testing program that includes a detailed map of your brain, also known as QEEG brain mapping, that tells us the areas of your brain that are dysregulated or out of balance. All intake testing includes a complete in-house clinical review to identify areas of your brain that are causing your struggles. After all testing and analysis, we will design a personalized treatment plan to resolve all issues identified during the intake process.

All depression treatment begins with Nexalin (a treatment only available at Unique Mind Care) to stimulate your hypothalamus and the surrounding areas with a frequency-based waveform that can help your brain heal itself. Along with Nexalin, we also leverage advanced LORETA neurofeedback techniques to reset and retrain your brain to restore the functional health of your brain which will resolve and eliminate the causes of your depression.

Other aspects of our treatment protocols include:

  • Psychotherapy
  • Neurotransmitter testing
  • Amino acid and natural supplements to treat neurotransmitter imbalances 
  • Recommendations for nutritional supplements and enzymes
  • Brain Health diets
  • Guidance on further support as needed

Do You Suffer from Depression?

Depression takes complete control over your life. It affects your mind and body in ways that people who have not experienced it for themselves cannot fully understand. It also affects the way you think and feel, and it can often seem as if you are completely at its mercy. You cannot experience life the way it was meant to be lived because your symptoms dictate everything.

Your depression doesn’t have to define you. If you’re looking for an alternative way to treat your depression without worrying about the symptoms of medications, we’re here to help.
