What is Depression?

It is a major depressive disorder and is very common, it can largely affect the individual’s normal life and the way an individual thinks. It results in a feeling of prolonged or overly repetitive sadness and loss of interest in activities that were once enjoyed. It can lead to a number of issues if left untreated that would negatively impact the daily activities of the individual. Patients suffering from severe depression may also have suicidal thoughts.

There is no depression cure, however many patients overcome their depression over time through prevention methods, and a majority gain some relief from depression symptoms. Prevention methods include medication, psychotherapy, exercise and light therapy. Read until the bottom of the page to find out more about how we use light therapy to reduce depression symptoms.

Types of Depression

There are multiple causes of depression, hence there are a few different types. These types are mentioned ahead:

A dysthymia patient may suffer from an off-mood for a prolonged period of time. The duration may exceed a whole year.

Seasonal Affective Disorder

Patients suffering from seasonal affective disorder (SAD) depression are very sensitive towards light during the winter season. Less exposure to sunlight can lead to SAD.

Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder is the combination of depression; and extreme mood attacks – called mania – hence also termed as manic depression. It requires immediate treatment.

Situational depression

Situational depression is initiated due to a life-changing event. This may include life-altering family events that cause a significant negative impact in one’s life.

    Depression Treatment

    There is no effective treatment for anxiety and depression. Mild depression treatment may not require complicated prevention methods and simple daily habits such as exercise and reducing stress may improve symptoms. Prevention methods may be required for severe depression treatment; this may include medication, however antidepressant medication has shown to be addictive due to physical dependence that may occur over time, and may worsen depression symptoms if stopped abruptly. Laser therapy is an effective, safe and non-invasive way for the management and treatment of depression.

    Laser therapy has been shown in research to be one of the beneficial treatment methods for depression, reducing symptoms of depression in patients after 2 weeks following laser therapy sessions. This is possible due to the fact that LLLT improves neurotransmitter abnormalities and enhances mitochondrial activity in the prefrontal cortex. LLLT has also demonstrated to be an effective technique in the improvement of a healthy patient’s memory, mood and attention.

    Laser therapy has been shown to increase cellular metabolism of the patient, which promotes the healing process of the targeted area. Laser therapy has also been shown to interact with the nerves of the targeted site in a way which reduces pain experienced. This interaction also releases endorphins which reduces the painful sensations at the site. These interactions have a combined effect that result in reduction of depression symptoms.

    Our technology is equipped with providing pain relief and management of many complex medical disorders – including many neurological disorders. The treatments are non-invasive, the procedure is painless and you do not experience any side effects.
