Depression and Bone Mass

Nevada City Depression and Bone Mass

Pesticides and Parkinson's in Nevada City CA

Beating depression builds bone mass. It has been known for some time that depressed individuals have about 15% less bone mass than happier folks. Scientists are now finding that the hormone serotonin plays an important role in bone formation and preservation. This same hormone is often low or not used well in individuals with depression. While the researchers reported reversing bone loss with Prozac, I recommend using 5-HTP in conjunction with lifestyle changes including nutrition, exercise, and a stress reduction technique to build natural serotonin levels. This recent research is yet another example of how all bodily systems are interconnected. Holistic health means building health from within--a balance harmony that results in greater, vitality and joy! Read the study here.
