Depression is a disease of the mind, body and spirit and thus necessitates a holistic approach for best outcomes. Psychiatric medication and psychotherapy play an important role in treatment of mental illness, but did you know there are evidence-based ways to treat depression that do not rely on medication? By using non-pharmaceutical interventions, we can augment our current treatment, reduce side effect, increase our health and energy, and empower our patients.
- Discuss the role of food, micronutrients, exercise, spirituality, and the importance of the gut microbiome in MDD.
- Discuss how to incorporate these modalities into your treatment plan with patients.
