Why Depression Causes Fatigue

Integrative Natural Medicine offers proven relief of anxiety and depression symptoms.

It is well established that depression is associated with elevated levels of stress hormones.  Cortisol and Adrenaline are produced by your adrenal glands for survival needs in acute stress.  In chronic stress, these hormones gradually deplete brain neurotransmitters like serotonin, and even are known to cause brain degenerative changes to the structure of the brain.

In the body, they deplete energy reserves, resulting in chronic fatigue.

When stress wears you down to the point of Depression, a proven remedy is True Mood Lift.  This is what this proven medicine contains, the names of the plants.

Albizia: In China researchers wanted to substantiate the traditional use of Albizia for anxiety and confusion.  In animal models, they induced stress through acute restraint and then tested their response to stress with the “open field and maze test.”  Open field measures the rats willingness to explore new territory.  Rats fed Albizia after acute restraint were significantly more willing to explore, and more capable to traverse a maze than the placebo fed rats.  They concluded that Albizia is significantly effective in reducing anxiety even after fearing for your life.  Wow.  Molecules. 2017 Aug 11;22(8)

Blessed Thistle: In Romania, doctors consulted historical text books and ancient healers described Blessed Thistle as increasing euphoria.   They studied the nourishment of this plant and were convinced that it would likely have a positive impact on brain health, happiness, and memory.  And that we should really give this to humans, because it’s absolutely safe.   Pharmacogn Mag. 2015 May; 11(Suppl 1): S110–S116

Licorice: In China, they are scientifically convinced, by multiple studies, that Licorice improves depression.  They even reached the point of using it with patients, and have witnessed.  This study is an inquiry into how it works so well.  They described the mechanism in words even I can’t understand, but I did understand that it decreased cortisol and adrenaline, and they concluded: Licorice improved depressive activity even under “unpredictable stress exposure.” Yao Xue Xue Bao. 2012 Dec;47 .

Is Paxil the best Antidepressant?
