Challenges in Preventing Depression Relapse
A depression treatment called rTMS, which uses magnetic fields to stimulate the brain, is showing promise. When it was administered to patients who didn't respond to antidepressants, about half showed improvement. Research is underway on its potential to prevent the recurrence of depression. Additionally, the link between depression, obesity and lifestyle-related diseases is becoming clearer. We show a case in which introducing nutritional guidance has led to symptom relief.
