Don't Be SAD - How Holistic Medicine Can Brighten Your Mood
“Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that's related to changes in seasons — SAD begins and ends at about the same times every year. If you're like most people with SAD, your symptoms start in the fall and continue into the winter months, sapping your energy and making you feel moody. Less often, SAD causes depression in the spring or early summer.” - Mayo Clinic 2017
If you experience these symptoms around this time of year, you are not alone. The key is to know the signs and get ahead of it and/or get treatment right away. Acupuncture, herbal medicine, exercise and even massage can have a huge impact on improving this seasonal disorder.
