Psychiatrist talks about a technique that helps fight depression

Dr. Richard Wadsworth, a psychiatrist from Missouri, USA, spoke about an effective way to fight depression recommended by his colleagues. According to the expert, if his patients followed such treatment, he would lose 75% of his clients, as they would no longer need help.

The new way of life involves alleviating the symptoms of depression and changing the way the brain works, the Daily Mail writes. It's a combination of regular exercise and cognitive behavioral therapy, a psychological treatment that helps people understand how thoughts control emotions.

This approach can treat depression as well as any pharmaceutical drug, according to numerous experts. Dr. Wadsworth said: "It's not going to work for conditions like bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, but it can be effective, I would say, in most cases of depression and even anxiety."

The health benefits of exercise, especially mental health, are well documented. High-intensity exercise releases chemicals called endorphins. But moderate-intensity exercise that is continued over a long period of time has an even greater effect.

Researchers in Hong Kong decided to determine which of the following is most effective in treating depression - antidepressants, exercise, or a combination of the two. More than 2500 participants took part in the experiment. As a result, the researchers found that physical activity helps as much as medication. Another study conducted by Australian experts showed that exercise is about 1.5 times more effective than medication or cognitive behavioral therapy.

It can actually affect the brain and behavior by stimulating the growth of new connections between cells. This change is called neuroplasticity, and it uses the brain's ability to reorganize processes as a key weapon against depression.

Along with exercise, cognitive behavioral therapy is a great option. Typical 50-minute sessions involve a therapist helping you to fight bad thoughts. The therapist asks the patient logical questions about their thought process to identify negative patterns and change them so that the client becomes more positive and productive.
