Evidence-based Guide to Supplements for Depression

Evidence-based Guide to Supplements for Depression

With the world changing at a faster rate than ever, it’s easy to feel as if things are out of control. Keeping up with work demands, parenting, and living in uncertainty, fear and isolation due to Covid-19 are triggers for anxiety and depression. This is particularly true for individuals who are already prone to depression. If you are dealing with depression, I want to offer hope that there are things you can do to effectively cope with depression, and not let it control you. Most importantly, it is imperative that you work with a qualified primary care physician, therapist and/or psychiatrist, to determine the optimal modalities of treatment for you.

Understanding What Depression Is

Did you know that major depression is one of the most common mental health disorders in the US? Over 17 million adults in the US have had at least 1 major depressive episode. 

This mood disorder leaves people feeling sad and uninterested in regular activities. To learn more about symptoms of depression and find out if fish oil, vitamin D, B vitamins, iron, zinc, SAM-e, St. John’s Wort and rhodiola should be used for depressive symptoms, what their side effects are, and how to start them, continue reading here.

If you are concerned that you are suffering from anxiety or depression, and would like to approach these from an integrative medicine perspective, I invite you to book a complimentary discovery call with me (limited to residents of NY and CA).

Warm regards,
Dr. Bojana Jankovic Weatherly
