Why Antidepressants and Nutraceutical Approaches to Mood Disorders Don’t Work

Healthcare is failing tens of millions of patients with mood disorders.

Alternative medicine is failing them with overly simplified approaches.

The Kharrazian Institute Mood and Anxiety Disorders course covers the neurology, neurophysiology, neurochemistry, and neurobiology of mood disorders.

Depression isn’t simply a neurotransmitter issue.

Instead, depression and mood disorders are a dynamic response to various mechanisms that impact the limbic lobe, frontal lobe, and other areas of brain function, including:

  • Cerebral blood flow
  • Neurochemical activity
  • Receptor site responses
  • Genetic expressions
  • Genetic susceptibility
  • Metabolic and immune imbalances, and more.

These individual mechanisms play key roles in major depressive disorder, minor depressive disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, premenstrual dysphoric disorder, and more.

We will cover the mechanisms of each of these pathways and then go into the web of mood disorders and the underlying mechanisms that most practitioners overlook.

Once we cover the inter-relational pathophysiology, neurophysiology, and web of mood disorders, we then translate that into a step-by-step clinical evaluation.

How do you develop a personalized treatment plan?

This makes the material tangible and not just a theoretical model.

For instance:

  • How do you use questionnaire forms?
  • How do you find the individual variables?
  • How do you perform an exam?
  • What kind of labs do you run?
  • What are the key things you look for in their medical history?

We discuss the published research on the nutraceutical, diet, and lifestyle applications that impact mood disorders. We then go through actual patient case studies. I will show you how do you work a patient up from the minute they walk in.

Did you know that major depressive disorder and chronic depression may be early signs of neurodegeneration?

Many people and even doctors believe depression is caused by an imbalance in the neurotransmitters serotonin, dopamine, acetylcholine, or epinephrine — and they do play a role in some basic types of depression.

But when someone suffers from chronic depression for many years, continues to worsen, and doesn’t respond to medication or nutraceutical protocols, they may suffer from a neurodegenerative disease.

In these cases, the clinical approach is to slow down the neurodegenerative processes and increase the brain’s overall efficiency.

Giving patients with major depressive disorder nutraceuticals or an antidepressant to change mood — and then changing the supplement or the drug when the patient doesn’t respond — is a failing model.

 

Major depressive disorder is a red flag that someone has an unhealthy brain and that their brain is starting to degenerate.

Sometimes it happens in response to a past traumatic brain injury. Sometimes it’s an early symptom of Parkinsonism, early onset Parkinson’s disease, early Alzheimer’s disease, frontal temporal dementia, or other neurodegenerative disorders.

One of the areas we’ll cover in the Kharrazian Institute Mood and Anxiety Disorders course is how to differentiate neurodegeneration and other clinical mechanisms when you see a patient suffering from chronic major depressive disorder.

Anxiety disorders are often secondary to balance issues

Did you know that anxiety disorders can be secondary to balance issues? Related symptoms include vertigo, dizziness, being prone to motion sickness, difficulty being in crowds, and sensitivity to light and sound.

Anxiety results from increased activation of the brain’s limbic centers, which govern such things as fear, anger, emotion, motivation, and memory.

When too much catecholamine, epinephrine, or norepinephrine activate these pathways, or when there is not enough GABAergic activity inhibiting them, anxiety arises.

Many people experience anxiety stemming from the vestibular-cerebellum system, the area of the brain involved with stability. People with vestibular cerebellar disorders have occasional dizziness and worsened balance.

They may tell you they have to hold the handrails walking downstairs and that they trip and fall regularly.

Poor balance activates neurological pathways directly into the limbic system.

When your body feels like it’s falling, the vestibular system sends input to the autonomic centers to increase your heart rate, dilate your pupils, and prepare you for a fall.

Gluten ataxia promotes anxiety through the vestibular-cerebellar system

Gluten ataxia is a condition in which gluten antibodies cross-react with the cerebellum, promoting poor balance. It is commonly seen in those with celiac disease. People with Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism or past brain injuries may also develop autoimmune cross-reactivity in the cerebellum.

It’s common for these individuals to develop chronic anxiety. They’ll experience heightened anxiety in crowded places or while watching a movie with quick screen changes.

A leading cause of mood disorders is…

…shifts in blood sugar balance.

Blood sugar imbalances cause a rollercoaster ride of neurochemical responses throughout the day.

When a person becomes shaky, lightheaded, and “hangry” between meals…

…or if they get really tired and need a nap after eating…

…these are signs of a blood sugar rollercoaster ride that releases different hormones impacting the brain.

When someone’s blood sugar levels drop, they are experiencing a rise in the stress hormones epinephrine, norepinephrine, and cortisol.

On the other hand, insulin surges causing tiredness after meals impacts insulin receptor signaling and catecholamine activity in the brain.

Both of these scenarios can dramatically impact mood, motivation, drive, anxiety, and irritability.

When you see a patient with a mood disorder, you have to look at what is disrupting the mood signaling system, which is based on the integration of hormones, neurotransmitters, and neurological pathways. Even immune-related compounds are involved.

Blood sugar imbalances are one of the many variables we cover that can impact mood.

End-stream neurochemical pathways impact depression and mood disorders

End-stream neurochemical pathways that impact depression and mood disorders involve serotonin, dopamine, GABA, and acetylcholine. Each of these neurochemical pathways has their own expressions within depression:

Dopamine: Can’t motivate, finish tasks, or start tasks; have a hard time with initiation and follow-through.

Serotonin: Can’t experience joy; no longer care about their favorite songs, movies, foods, or social get-togethers.

Epinephrine and norepinephrine: Lack alertness, focus, and drive, and can’t sustain their attention.

GABA: Can’t calm down their brain and have an ongoing restless mind and anxiety.

You need to look for the different features of the depression. These features provide clues to the neurochemical pathways involved.

Then can you work backwards to what caused the breakdown. For example, if it’s related to dopamine activity, explore the nucleus accumbens, dopamine production, MAO clearance of dopamine, and dopamine agonists, such as androgens in males or estrogen in females.

An overly simplified model of giving someone a neurotransmitter supplement doesn’t adequately address these pathways.

Disruptions to the microbiome can impact mood

An explosion of research shows our gut bacteria can impact mood. In animal models they have induced anxiety disorders by sterilizing the gut.

Many types of gut bacteria modulate the synthesis, activation, and clearance of neurotransmitters. The gut microbiome releases hormones, neuropeptides, and neurotransmitters that directly impact the brain via the vagus nerve or by crossing the blood-brain barrier.

Conditions such as intestinal permeability, or leaky gut can cause major depressive disorder, and research shows treating leaky gut with diet and nutrition causes major changes in non-responsive major depressive disorders.

A single drug or nutrient doesn’t work well for depression and mood disorders.

You have to treat the entire web.

The most popular treatment model for depression in both conventional and alternative medicine is a single drug or nutraceutical.

Even if these approaches work, they typically lose their effectiveness because the neurochemical pathways adapt and stop responding.

Effective treatment depends on addressing the web of physiological mechanisms that underlie mood disorders.

You have to evaluate things such as:

  • The microbiome
  • The blood sugar systems
  • Prostaglandin signaling
  • Hormone levels
  • Brain function
  • Signs of neurodegeneration
  • Brain oxygenation

These variables impact how our brain functions and its ability to maintain a healthy mood and not be susceptible to trivial things that cause anxiety.

We go over these concepts in the Kharrazian Institute Mood and Anxiety Disorders course to help you break out of the single-drug or single-nutrient model of treating depression and mood disorders.

Testimonials about the Kharrazian Institute courses

– Carri

The very first course I attended with Dr. Kharrazian was his Functional Endocrinology course back in 2003 and boy did that ever rock my world. His Kharrazian Institute Neuroinflammation course just did the same thing… but on a MUCH larger scale. It’s a total game changer. Paradigm shifting. I’m 20+ years in practice and I’ve noticed patients are getting so much harder to treat, with much more complex and chronic issues, and now I have a much better understanding why and what to do about it! Dr. K — thank you for putting this revolutionary information together!

– Christopher

I’ve practiced 23 years and one of my biggest pet peeves was “shooting blind.” By this I mean, “It’s been determined by years of clinical use that such and such a remedy is good for the treatment of X.” I always felt inadequate, exposed, and unsure of the variables. I can’t express in words the degree of appreciation I have for your dedication to determining mechanisms, researching studies, and most importantly breaking down this disparate information into readily accessible and mostly easy to understand, maps of malfunctioning physiology. I have found it invaluable. As you repeatedly stressed at your Functional Neurology Seminars program in the past, it’s sloppy clinical work to proceed with treatment until a clear picture of where the dominos fell first is figured out, so the appropriate treatment is arrived at. A million thanks to a fabulous contributor.

– Steven

This seminar was more eye opening about why some of these chronic failures we’ve all had as practitioners need more of a neuro-metabolic approach and to give yourself and the patient time and give realistic expectations so we both don’t get burned out or disappointed. That was huge for me. Thanks Dr. Kharrazian.

– Diego

This has been a freaking gorgeous course. Looking forward to the digestive health course in September.

– Xavier

What a blessing to have been able to follow that neuroinflammation course. Full of scientific data but lots of clinical applications that are very helpful for practitioners. I’m very happy to be able to follow that course since nothing is available like this in France. This should be taught in med school. Thank you Dr. Datis Kharrazian!

– Judy

What a brilliant lecture and very clinical. Hammering home the points and reviewing while we went along really prepared me for the exam. So practical and I will be attending the next two in the series. Very well done. Really can’t say enough good things today. Thanks to everyone involved to pull it off and make livestream possible for me here in Canada.

– Greg

Dr. Kharrazian has literally given me hope and if I could use one word to describe my weekend it would be “PROFOUND”. I am truly grateful for you!!!

– Lapis

Thanks for the excellent, clinically translatable course; with much appreciation for the lucid organization and abundant supportive documents.
