Depression is a serious mental health disorder that negatively affects upward of 10% of people worldwide. Someone that is depressed can easily lose interest or have difficulty in daily activities that may seem easy for most people. Meeting up with friends, getting through the workday, or simply getting out of bed become genuine challenges to someone suffering from chronic or situational depression.
Depression can affect a person’s emotions, behavior, and thoughts significantly. Though the illness is commonly associated with feelings of sadness, the symptoms may not always be outwardly recognizable to those around you. Reboot offers noninvasive neurofeedback, and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) to alleviate symptoms of depression. Common symptoms associated with depression that we strive to reduce consist of:
- Social introversion
- Loss of appetite
- Weight loss or gain
- Feelings of hopelessness
- Thoughts of suicide
Depressed people are subject to feeling a strong sense of anguish. This can easily be reflected in their work ethic and can affect employment. Other emotional turmoil, if not recognized as a symptom of depression, could be taken negatively by a friend, spouse, or family member. Without proper treatment, depression could lead to a noticeable change in how you carry yourself and evaluate your self-worth.
In some instances, depression will physically change your body. Depression can change your appetite and cause you to gain or lose weight rapidly. Not only does this change your physical appearance, but it could lead to poor self-image. In severe cases of depression, the individual suffering may begin to lose interest and have thoughts of suicide. Depression is a serious mental disorder and Reboot offers therapies to stifle the disorder’s symptoms.
Reboot’s technology-based therapy helps detects underactive and overactive parts of the brain to help determine which protocol is best for you. Though traditional talk therapies and costly medications are often used to battle depression, Reboot’s EMDR and neurofeedback therapies are a superior substitute. EMDR changes the beliefs you have about yourself, instead of just thoughts and neurofeedback corrects the origin of brain issues instead of putting a global chemical band-aid on them.
If you or a loved one experiences signs of depression and want to receive treatment for a more profound and long-lasting change, contact Reboot for more information.
