Excerpt from:

The Breakthrough Depression Solution

 

By James Greenblatt, M.D.

 

The theories as to what causes depression are not based on strong science, and our treatments are not working nearly as well as they should: Psychiatry is in crisis. Only about 70 percent of depressed patients show substantial clinical improvements when they take their medicines as prescribed, and of these people, two-thirds continue to have residual symptoms that interfere with their ability to function. In 26 percent of those the dysfunction is mild; in 23 percent, it’s moderate; in 12 percent, severe; and in 4 percent, very severe. That means 39 percent of people who experience improvement from medications are still left with moderate to very severe residual symptoms of depression. Add this to the 30 percent of those not helped by treatment, and we have an appalling number of depressed patients we are failing to help.

 

There’s simply no denying it: The usual and customary treatment mode (typically based solely on a subjective psychiatric examination and the construction of a symptom list) often leads to a wild goose chase as the psychiatrist blindly searches for a medicine that might work. “Body” factors such as nutrition, toxins, hormones, allergies, biochemical risks, and medical disorders are typically ignored.

Case Study from James Greenblatt, M.D.

 

William is a 32 year old male military veteran who presented with symptoms of depression, fatigue, and inability to complete school work to obtain his degree. He had no prior history of depression.  Based on his nutritional tests, William was found to have low levels of vitamin B12 with no other food or nutritional abnormalities noted.  William was not treated with any depression medication, but was given three intramuscular injections of B12 per week (1000mcg of Methylcobalamin) which resulted in improvement within the first two weeks.  Within six weeks there was a dramatic difference in mood, energy, and ability to concentrate.

Upcoming Free Webinar

Nutritional Risk Factors in Predicting Suicide Risk

Presented by James Greenblatt, M.D.,

at 6 p.m. PDT on May. 22

 

Suicide was the tenth leading cause of death for all ages in 2010 according to the CDC. Yet, we have very limited screening tools for predicting or preventing suicide. In this webinar, Dr. Greenblatt will review how nutritional deficiencies contribute to a higher risk for suicide. This webinar will discuss the role of omega 3 fatty acids, cholesterol, and lithium. Dr. Greenblatt will also talk about integrative therapies along with nutritional augmentation strategies for antidepressants medications.

 

James Greenblatt, M.D., is a dually board-certified child and adult psychiatrist and the founder and medical director of Comprehensive Psychiatric Resources, an integrative psychiatry practice. For more than 20 years, he has been a leader in Integrative Medicine, lecturing on nutritional treatments in psychiatry and eating disorders.
