DEPRESSION 

The symptoms of depression can feel all too common - sensations of despair, hopelessness, and anger, low energy, feeling overwhelmed, a loss interest in other people and activities you used to find joy in, insomnia, fatigue, loss of appetite - I could go on... Pharmocological treatment of depression is the norm in Australia, but it can often take some time to find the correct medication, and there are a lot of unwanted side -effects that can come with this course of treatment. But there are alternatives to be found in Chinese medicine that work well either alongside, or instead of, more common treatments.
