Natural Remedies for Depression. Altering the brain’s chemistry

Depression is one of the most frequent psychological problems encountered in medical practice. Some studies say 13 to 20 percent of American adults exhibit some depressive symptoms.1 The mortality rate among those who are depressed is four times greater than those without depression—major depression accounts for 60 percent of all suicides.2 Yet, despite this professional recognition and the fact that depression is a treatable condition, only about a third of depressed patients receive appropriate intervention.2 While the exact etiology of depression is unknown, numerous factors appear to contribute. These include genetics, life/event sensitization and biochemical changes. Family, twin and adoption studies demonstrate that predisposition toward depression can be inherited....

Fatigue Natural Health Medicine

What is Adrenal Fatigue?

Adrenal fatigue is a collection of signs and symptoms, known as a "syndrome" that results when the adrenal glands function below the necessary level. Most commonly associated with intense or prolonged stress, it can also arise during or after acute or chronic infections, especially respiratory infections such as influenza, bronchitis or pneumonia. As the name suggests, its paramount symptom is fatigue that is not relieved by sleep but it is not a readily identifiable entity like measles or a growth on the end of your finger. You may look and act relatively normal with adrenal fatigue and may not have any obvious signs of physical illness, yet...

Hormones and Emotions, How Are They Connected?

Estradiol and Serotonin At optimal levels, estradiol (E2) supports serotonin in several ways: E2 increases tryptophan hydroxylase, the rate-limiting step in serotonin synthesis E2 receptor (E2β) simulation upregulates the expression of serotonin receptors (5-HT2A) E2 acts as a serotonin reuptake inhibitor E2 inhibits monoamine oxidase activity, thus preventing the breakdown of serotonin Consequently, if estradiol levels decrease, serotonin activity may decrease as well. Low estradiol levels may result in symptoms associated with low serotonin, e.g. low mood, sleep difficulties, hot flashes, uncontrolled appetite, and headaches. Supporting serotonin may counter the effects of decreased estradiol.

Hormones and Immune System

Hormones, Emotions and Immune System, They are All Interconnected.

The human body consists of multiple systems that communicate to maintain homeostasis and health. The coordinated interconnectedness of the nervous, endocrine, and immune systems is often overlooked when considering patient care. Nevertheless, our health is hinged on the existence of neurotransmitters, hormones, and cytokines, which are essential chemical signals that mediate the communication between the nervous, endocrine, and immune systems, respectively. Collectively, these systems constitute the Neuro-Endo-Immune (NEI) Supersystem. Taking a closer look at the role of endocrinology in the NEI supersystem, there are several important hormone-neurotransmitter interactions and three axes at which much hormone-neurotransmitter-cytokine interaction occurs; including the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid (HPT) axis, and the...
