Dr. Sergey Kalitenko Offers Alternative Treatments for Depression
February 09, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsDr. Sergey Kalitenko, a Brooklyn, New York-based doctor acknowledges that there are many drugs available for the treatment of depression, but says that it is very difficult to achieve long-lasting results or any significant mood improvement with them.
A recent report published in The New England Journal of Medicine states that antidepressant manufacturers had 94% of their positive drug studies printed, while just 14% of those with disappointing or uncertain results found their way into print (and even those were made to have a positive spin). This ongoing bias has been misleading doctors and consumers about the drugs’ true effectiveness for years.
Dr. Sergey Kalitenko, a Brooklyn, New York-based doctor acknowledges that there are many drugs available for the treatment of depression, but says that it’s very difficult to achieve long-lasting results or any significant mood improvement with them.
Dr. Kalitenko offers the following, drug-free, alternatives:
1. Mood changes are often caused by a decline in hormone levels due to menopause or andropause. Therefore, hormonal testing and correction with hormone replacement therapy (HRT) may be helpful.
2. Most antidepressants work to increase the serotonin level in brain synapses. The gut is the major source of endogenous serotonin, so taking care of it by eating properly and detoxifying may help to treat depression.
Detoxification protocols, varied dietary solutions and HRT are available at Dr. Kalitenko’s office and all treatments are closely monitored under a physician’s supervision. Initial consultation is free.
