Persistent depressive disorder treatment

What is Depression?

Depression is a disorder that affects how you think, behave and feel.

It is characterized by persistent feelings of sadness, loss of interest in activities that were once enjoyable, fatigue, difficulty concentrating and changes in appetite.

Depression can be treated with therapies, medications, and lifestyle changes. You can choose what suits you.

Personally, I would choose a natural treatment.

Relation gut flora and depressive disorder | Our "second brain"


It is increasingly recognized that gut health is linked to mental health. The gut is sometimes referred to as the "second brain" because of its influence on mental health. 

Studies show that guts produce their own serotonin, a neurotransmitter important in regulating mood. Studies have shown that changes in the gut microbiome can affect serotonin production and therefore mental health.

There is growing evidence that there is a link between gut microbiota and depression. Studies show that people with depression often have an imbalance in their gut flora. This imbalance can lead to inflammation in the gut, which can then affect the brain and lead to depression. To balance the gut microbiome, it is important to eat a healthy diet rich in probiotics, prebiotics and fiber.

In addition, it is important to have a healthy gut. That means intestines without parasites, leaky guy syndrome, inflammations, etc. 

What can I offer with depressive disorder as a holistic therapist

As a holistic orthomolecular therapist, I look at the whole person instead of treating symptoms. 

I have also felt depressed once so I know what that feels like. 

The treatment for depression can include therapy (conversation, energy treatment, dealing with traumas or fears), nutrition, nutritional supplements, bowel management, stress reduction, lifestyle changes, etc.

There is a suitable therapy for each.

My advice to you, before you start taking antidepressants (which only treat symptoms and you get addicted to that crap), treat your gut first and you'll be amazed at the results!

It's important to seek help if you experience any of these symptoms.

A long time ago I came to Elena with persistent depressive disorder. Then she asked how are your bowels? Fine I said. But the tests have shown a different story. It turned out that I had inflammation in my gut, had a leaky gut, couldn't absorb nutrients, etc. Now I can make a clear link with gut and mental health. I feel calm again, no crazy things, my energy is back, I feel great! I'm super glad I don't have to take anti-depressants

What I found special about Elena was that she can easily combine scientific insights with alternative medicine and spiritual ways. I actually came in with an inflammation in my hip. To my surprise I was told that I had problems with my intestines, intestinal flora, etc. I was skeptical but wanted to find out everything. However, the examination showed that I had a wrong intestinal flora, inflammation, leaky gut and other things. Now, a few months later, I have more energy, less pain, have also lost weight (a good side effect). I would say listen to your intuition! I'm really happy with it 🙂
I've often heard about our "second brain" but now I can feel too. My real brain responds to my gut. It's so crazy to experience this. Since my intestines function properly, I don't suffer from brain fog or depressed feelings. Thank you very much dear Elena for all the effort. I wasn't easy I know but you said you meant 🙂 I'm reborn!!!!
