The Real Cause of Depression

author avatar Dr. Eric Berg 08/31/2023

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, depression is a common but serious mood disorder. It’s also known as major depressive disorder or clinical depression. This condition causes severe symptoms that affect how you feel, think, and handle daily activities. But one question lingers- what causes depression?

We get depressed when we lose a loved one, but we can also get depressed for no reason. To address the latter, people want natural alternatives to psychiatric drugs. An alternative approach to treating depression is to look at the person’s vitamin B3 levels. There’s a big chance that he’s deficient, so that needs to be replenished.

Looking at the person’s diet is the first step. Junk foods need to be removed from the diet to make the treatment more effective. Next, we have to normalize the blood sugar level, as too high or too low could lead to depression, especially hypoglycemia. Fat Storing Hormone resistance contributes to the development of this mental disorder when the brain is not getting enough fuel to function optimally.

Another cause of depression is the lack of sleep. When a person has sleep problems or is going through a lot of stress, he’ll definitely get a hard time falling asleep. Serotonin is a hormone and neurotransmitter that elevates the mood. To produce enough serotonin, you would need L-tryptophan.
