Mood and Depression

Mood and Depression

In Canada, over 50 million prescriptions are 

dispensed annually for psychiatric medications. These are not harmless drugs. Antidepressants have significant effects that may cause individuals to feel worse. 

The most common side effects of antidepressants are:
  • Emotional Numbness
  • Sexual Dysfunction
  • Weight Gain
  • Insomnia

The first step is to assess whether a person is truly depressed. NutriChem uses significant measuring tools such as the Beck Depression Inventory in order to first stipulate the level of mood disturbance. With the help of the BCB test, a NutriChem clinician will attempt to stabilize any biochemical abnormality in order to restore proper mental health. Dopamine, norepinephrine and serotonin are neurotransmitters known to have an immense effect on mood. Their measurements are included in the BCB Test. A NutriChem clinician will develop a personalized custom multivitamin to address any deficiencies observed in the laboratory work. Nutritional and lifestyle recommendations will also be made.
