Dr. Michael Banov, psychologist and author of Taking Antidepressants, has been studying depression for years. But he says it’s only been recently that scientists have discovered what happens to the brain during times of depression. Because it doesn’t produce enough of the brain chemicals it needs to thrive, it actually shrinks.
The good news is – it’s not a permanent condition. After successful treatment, the brain will grow back. But Dr. Banov says treatment isn’t as simple as popping a few pills and declaring yourself cured. Depression is a whole body illness and requires a whole body intervention. And in this audio, you’ll hear all about the latest developments in the areas of depression, and all the latest treatments.
