Success Story for Depression“Prior to walking in the door a month ago, I was in severe pain due to spine surgery. The aftereffects have been awful muscle spasms, nerve damage, pain, and overall weakness. At times, I found myself being in a depressing mental state. These symptoms have been with me through two surgeries. The first surgery was in August 2016 and the second surgery was in January 2017.
Now, since coming to SOPHIA, the muscle spasms have dissipated a week and a half ago. Pain has turned into discomfort. The herbal supplement regime is helping me mentally and physically. I feel healthier!” – Diane S., suffered from Severe Back Pain, and Depression
Symptoms & Causes Of Depression
Depression is a debilitating mental illness that impacts people in their daily lives. Symptoms of depression may be easy to identify such as lack of interests and feelings of emptiness in their lives. However, some of them are harder to catch, such as irritability, insomnia and changing appetites.
Depressive episodes have a wide variety of causes, including but not limited to:
- Genetic predisposition and a family history of depression
- Major stressful events such as the death of a loved one or becoming unemployed
- Childhood traumas such as bullying or divorcing parents
- Substance abuse including alcoholism
- Comorbidity with other mental illnesses such as anxiety

You can help calm your body and increase your chances of sleeping with relaxation therapy.* Techniques involving progressive muscle relaxation, breathing exercises, mindfulness and meditation may help you combat some of the symptoms of depression such as insomnia in order to bring yourself into a state of inner peace.*
