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

Your Different Treatment Options

Lifestyle Counseling

We recommend lifestyle counseling for our clients who may be going through a depressive episode and feel they have exhausted all other treatment options. We offer this new healing process to provide an education for our clients who otherwise feel like there is no way to improve their mental state. Essentially, we will coach you into living your life in a healthy way.

Relaxation Therapy

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.*

Dietary Therapy

Many people’s depressive symptoms may be exacerbated by poor eating habits. Our Chinese Dietary Therapy counselors can find the right balance of healthy foods to help you regain control of your life.* A proper diet can help you lose or gain weight, help you sleep better at night and create more energy throughout your day. Through our experts, we strive to break you out of your depressive episode by treating your body as delicately as your mind.*


A common, natural remedy to depression can be more exercise. By encouraging you to participate in rigorous activity during the day, you’ll be able to increase the production of dopamine in your brain and naturally make you happier.* Exercise close to bedtime can also encourage a better night’s sleep, and exercise in the morning can energize you throughout your workday.* Exercise may improve your physical and mental health, especially in conjunction with a healthy diet.*
