Depression is one of the true “silent killers” in our world today, with an estimated 350 million people worldwide suffering from moderate to severe depression. The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) suggests that nearly 7% of the American population suffers from depression – that’s over 16 million Americans!
Unfortunately, traditional medical science is not well-suited for treating depression. All too often, those suffering from depression are simply handed “feel good” pills, in hopes of making the symptoms go away. Not only does that not address the more underlying issues, but it can often result in the patient getting hooked on their pills!
