A diagnosis of depression can be very vague, and you may not really be sure yourself. You may be full of self-doubt, wondering if you are simply tired or fatigued, angry at someone, irritable for whatever reason, or just run down.
Perhaps you’re coming down with something, maybe it’s Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia or some other sickness. You feel miserable, you probably feel sorry for yourself, and you don’t know what to do or where to turn to fix yourself.
Depression has become a buzz word and does not always mean a medical diagnosis of depression, determined by specific criteria as listed in the DSM-V above. When a medical expert diagnoses a person as being depressed based on this criteria, it is called “clinical depression.” To further complicate matters, depression can have one of two causes. A depressive episode can be triggered by overwhelming situational traumas and difficulties or it can be what is considered “endogenous.”
When depression is considered “endogenous,” it is labeled thus when the diagnosing physician cannot determine the situational causation.’
There are so many of these “symptoms” and “syndromes” that overlap other disorders and dysfunctions, or byproducts of other disorders, diseases and dysfunctions, that a diagnosis for clinical depression really is, at best, a guess.
The general approach is “deductive.” In other words, you and your doctor try one remedy after another and wait to see what works. If you ever watched the TV show “House, MD,” you might cringe, but you’ll know what I mean.
Depression does not have to be a life sentence nor does it always have to be treated with medication. Hypnotherapy has had some outstanding results in relieving depression and taking patients back to their normal lives.
The good news is that we can begin to alleviate symptoms without a clear-cut diagnosis using a number of very effective hypnotherapy protocols, without the dangers of contra-indicated medications or prognostications.
We can also use a number of proven subconscious diagnostic protocols to narrow down the “possible” diagnoses, while reducing or eliminating many of the debilitating symptoms. At the same time, your subconscious mind which contains an internal healing mechanism can be programmed to begin the bodies’ own natural healing mechanisms.
Most issues require four to eight sessions to reach desired goals. Of course, this varies depending on the particular issue, on secondary contributing factors, such as sleep distress and anxiety levels. Most clients experience noticeable relief after their first session.
