Medicine is traditionally seen as a healing profession. When people get sick, they go to the doctor looking for a cure. In some cases, routine treatments simply don’t work. In those cases, doctors move on to second-line treatments, alternative medicine, and off-label use of drugs in order to heal.
We’ve seen many examples of successful second-line treatments in life-threatening diseases such as cancer and diabetes. In fact, the advancement of modern medicine over the years has helped provide renewed hope and healing in many ways. Second-line and alternative treatments continue to help improve outcomes and quality of life for patients around the world and for that, we’re thankful.
Major Depressive Disorder Affects Over 300 Million People Globally.
It’s true that medicine is made to heal. And, when it comes to mental health, we turn to first-line treatments like antidepressants for restoration and relief of symptoms. But sometimes, antidepressants and therapy aren’t enough. So what do we do for the 30 percent to 40 percent of patients who fail to respond to first-line treatments such as antidepressants?
Where can you turn if you’re sick of feeling sick… and tired… and generally miserable?
