Depression is considered the most common cause of disability in the United States (Norman TR 2006). According to the National Institutes of Health, clinical depression will affect up to 25 percent of women in their lifetimes and up to 12 percent of men. People with depression suffer in many areas of their lives, including sleep, eating, relationships, school, work, and self-image.
Depression is more than the normal feelings of sadness that people experience from time to time. It is a clearly defined disorder that affects both mind and body. People suffering from clinical depression cannot just will their blues away, and in most cases the depression will not subside without active intervention. Unfortunately, however, many people do not seek professional treatment for their depression, so the disorder is likely to be under diagnosed. Among those who do seek professional help, many people do not find relief for their condition among conventional therapies.
Treatment for depression is usually multifaceted, and there is no doubt that nutrition plays an important role. Research has shown that the body chemistry of depressed people is altered in various ways and that deficiencies in neurotransmitters, hormonal imbalances, and other nutritional deficits can contribute to clinical depression. Also, many people with depression do not eat enough, overeat, or eat nonnutritious foods. New research has also connected depression to inflammation and oxidative stress, which are both appropriately managed with nutritional supplements.
Finally, the role of hormones in depression is underappreciated in the medical community. Many people who suffer from depression that cannot be treated effectively with conventional antidepressants may actually be suffering from hormonal imbalances that are causing their disease. Unfortunately, few physicians routinely test their depressed patients for hormonal imbalances.
