Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.
  Depression  

There are about 8 million Americans that are afflicted with depression.  It is the main cause of suicide which claims over 30,000 lives each year in the US.  Some estimates state that about 20% of people will suffer a major episode of depression during their life.  The western antidepressant drugs such as Effexor, Paxil, Elavil, Zoflot, Prozac, Celexa, Lexapro, Wellbutrin, Trazodone can be beneficial by focusing on maintaining the serotonin levels in the brain.  But, in addition to the side effects, the patients need to take them all the time.  Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can be a very effective alternative to treat depression, anxiety, stress-induced fatigue and emotions swings resulting in long-term benefits.   Acupuncture and Chinese herbal therapy treat the root cause of the disease-the internal imbalance caused by the exposure to external stress.  Such stress, if not treated, can cause energy "blockage" or changes of the neurotransmitters such as a decrease of brain concentration of the serotonin levels-resulting in symptoms such as anxiety, poor sleep, fatigue, and eventually, depression.
