Tips To Help With Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)

Hello everyone.

Dr Brad here again and today we are going to talk about seasonal affective disorder (SAD).

This is when people feel down and depressed during the winter months.

It no surprise there is a lot more anxiety and depression out there due to this whole covid thing. I have unfortunately observed this within my own practice.

This is why I want to give you some tips on how you can get out in front of this now especially if you are the type to get down during the gloomy winter months.

I’d rather you deal with this holistically instead of taking those wicked meds that often times have unfavorable side-effects. Or at least try these first.

First of all, EXERCISE !! Make a commitment with your self to get to the gym a few times per week, or take a yoga class or get out for a walk when the weather is tolerable.
The change of scenery and the endorphin release from exercising is a great
natural mood elevator.

You can also get yourself a sun lamp. You can purchase them affordably on Amazon. Studies show that sun lamps have a positive impact on serotonin production … a hormone which has been linked to depression when levels are low.

Spinal alignments …. these flood your body with endorphins. Endorphins are your feel good hormones and many people remark that after having an alignment, they feel like they are ‘walking on air.’ 

So do everything you can to naturally release and flood your body with endorphins because they too can lead to depression when levels are low.

And be careful what you are saying to your self because your body is always listening.
