  • Lyme Disease | What You Should Do If You Think You Have Depression Or Are …

    Anti-depressants and other psychotropic drugs can actually create feelings of depression. Abnormal thyroid (the gland that produces hormones that influences metabolism and every organ tissue or cell in the body) function may dramatically effect mood and cause severe depression, fatigue and memory loss. Adrenal gland exhaustion may also be a contributing factor to depression. Long-term use of antibiotics alters the immune system causing exhaustion and anxiety.

    Also, long-term use of antibiotics can create a situation where the body develops a fungal infection such as Candida. Candida has been implicated in causing depression and anxiety in people with a substantial overgrowth of this fungus. The presence of Lyme disease, a bacterial infection from a tic bite that attacks the nervous system, can cause depression and psychosis.

    Dr. David W. Tanton PHD author, founder and research director for the Soaring Heights Longevity Center states that eating foods that create allergies or sensitivities can easily affect moods. Hypoglycemia (abnormally low levels of blood sugar), hypothyroid (insufficient thyroid gland) or adrenal fatigue as well as the use of many prescriptions and over the counter medications can easily contribute to feelings of depression.

    It is not uncommon for people diagnosed with depression to have some other underlying medical condition that is causing them to manifest symptoms of depression. This is so prevalent that you will want to find out “specifically” what that condition is so that it can be treated correctly. If you are told that you have a chemical imbalance in the brain then ask your doctor to give you a test that shows exactly what the imbalance is before you take any medication to correct it.

    Remember: You are ultimately responsible for your own health. So make sure you get well educated on what you are doing to your body and why you are doing it.

    So before you do anything else follow the steps below.

    A) Find a medical doctor or other qualified health practitioner who can do a thorough examination of you. I would recommend finding a doctor that is more holistically inclined and who has experience in diagnosing nutritional deficiencies as well as experience with parasitic and fungal diagnostics as well as knowledge of Lyme disease.

    B) Some of the conditions to be alert for are:
    a. Vitamin or mineral deficiencies
    b. Hypoglycemia
    c. Orthopedic problems such as chronic back problems that cause daily pain.
    d. Fungal disease such as Candida
    e. Parasite infestation
    f. Lyme disease
    g. Low thyroid
    h. Adrenal exhaustion
    i. Food sensitivities
    j. Allergies

    C) Once diagnosed then seek out the best treatment possible. Again I would recommend going for the least invasive treatment first and then progressing from there.
