We successfully treat people with chronic depression who have failed to respond to traditional methods.
At Sponaugle Wellness we treat the underlying cause of depression, not just the symptoms. We’ve treated thousands of patients trapped in a never-ending spiral of depression. Many of these patients have been prescribed medications in an attempt to mask the symptoms instead of attacking the source of the depression.
Are You Experiencing Depression Symptoms?
What Makes Depression Treatment At Sponaugle Wellness So Successful?
Holistic Treatment Backed by Science. In short, we use brain (PET) scans to determine diagnosis and best possible treatment options.
Our sophisticated depression research has correlated the various symptoms experienced by our depression patients with abnormal findings on their brain scans and abnormalities seen in their brain chemistry patterns. In addition, we have correlated their brain scans and brain chemistry patterns with over 500 various biomarkers for the following; gut toxicity, mold toxicity, industrial toxicity, amino acid deficiencies, hormonal deficiencies, and brain infections like Lyme disease.
Our clinical research in depression patients has proven that neurotoxicity, the excessive accumulation of fatty toxins in the brain, can cause severe depression through down-regulation of electrical activity in the brain’s pleasure center. This is becoming a more common, but rarely diagnosed cause of depression, because each decade we are exposed to more environmental toxins.
WHY TRADITIONAL DEPRESSION TREATMENT FAILS
Depression treatment offered by American psychiatrists remains at least 10 years behind the advanced brain research being produced on a daily basis by European and American neuroscientists. When psychiatrists are too complacent to perform research or spend time studying recent PET scan research, they remain ill-knowledgeable regarding multiple, newly known, biochemical and physiological causes of depression, most of which are readily treatable.
Unfortunately, most psychiatrists prefer reading about new psychiatric medications in drug company advertisements. Most of the “new drugs” are actually a new version of an old drug that no longer holds a patent. These drugs normally treat the psychological symptoms but rarely treat the underlying cause of depression.
Psychiatrists also demonstrate remarkable tunnel vision when they place their primary focus on using drugs to enhance the serotonin activity in the brain of their depressed patients. This modality of depression treatment was more effective 30 years ago when Americans suffered from less neurotoxicity and less malnutrition.
Many Suffer Unknowingly From Melancholic Depression
Patients suffering from melancholic depression suffer experience many other changes in their personality in addition to depression. All of these symptoms are derived from a severely overactive deep limbic system, a walnut sized region located in our midbrain.
MELANCHOLIC DEPRESSION IS OFTEN CHARACTERIZED BY:
What Causes Melancholic Depression?
Research done by Dr. Sponaugle and the Sponaugle Wellness Team has found that Melancholic Depression is often caused by co-occurring disorders. These illnesses can be inherited or caused by our environment.
