depression problemsTreatment from the Inside Out

Depression is a common problem people visit Complete Care of Colorado about. Often, patients feel depressed, but can’t seem to put their finger on why they feel that way or how to change their mood.

Unlike mainstream medicine, which focuses on treating symptoms through medication, our approach focuses on listening to what your body is naturally telling you. Medications simply mask the problem, they do not treat the underlying issues.

One place in which we start addressing depression is in the gut.

Now, you may have heard the adage about “listening to your gut.” There’s a lot of truth to this saying. At Complete Care of Colorado, we believe that the gut is like a second brain. Furthermore, you need to be listening to what it has to say. Often, stress can wreak havoc on the overall health of the digestive system. This can have a long-term effect on your overall mood and behavior.

If you didn’t know, your gut has two types of bacteria – the “good” kind and the “bad” kind. When there’s an imbalance of these bacteria, called dysbiosis by medical professionals, digestive issues can occur. The end result is a change in your mood that can lead to depression.

If you’re interested in learning more about lifting yourself or a loved one out of depression, we encourage you to give us a call and set up an appointment. Treating depression today can change your entire outlook on life.
