New and Radical Ways to Treat Depression (Depression Treatment)

Are you depressed? Do not worry. Depressive disorders affect approximately 18.8 million American adults or about 9.5% of the U.S. population age 18 and older in a given year. Furthermore, everyone, at some time in their life, will be affected by depression. Moreover, pre-schoolers are the fastest-growing market for antidepressants. At least four percent of preschoolers (over a million) are clinically depressed.

Given those facts what you can do to overcome depression? To face depression, the first thing that you should do it to understand the neurological base of this affliction. From the point of view of neurology, depression is a brainwave imbalance. It means that depressed people tend to have an hyperactive right (emotional) hemisphere dominating their left (logical) one. That's why depressed people show irrational behavior and in many cases commit suicide, the emotional side of your brain commands the rational side of your brain.

Happily, there is a not such a new technology to face depression (it has over 70 yearas of clinical use). This technology is brainwave entrainment. The technology of brainwave entrainment is about the synchronization of your brain with a source of frequencies to achieve a desired mental state. These frequencies can be generated by sounds, lights, physical vibrations, or even electromagnetism.

This technology offers a radical and an entirely new way to treat depression. In this case, I will talk only about brainwave entrainment with sounds, however, I will not enter in technical details. A typical depression reduction session based on sounds consist of a source of a special sound that is listened between 15 and 30 minutes periodically. This session helps to reduce the activity in the right brain hemisphere, while increasing activity in the left, giving your more control over yourself and reducing irrational thought patterns. In other words, these sessions slow down your emotional (right) brain while accelerates your logical (left) brain, giving the patient the judgment to returns to normality.

These therapies have the following advantages: first; it acts quickly, giving relief rapidly; second; if you use it repeatedly, the treatment will have long lasting effects. It is as your brain could be trained and learn how to behave.

In summary, your brain can be trained about how to live without depression with a method that is effective, inexpensive, and unobtrusive.
