There are two main types of depression: Situational, which is connected to a loss or trauma such as a death, and endogenous depression, which is a response to a structural problem in the brain or a neurotransmitter issue.

Both types of depression have similar symptoms: You lose interest in activities that once brought you joy. You feel sad and tired, while you might experience extremes in sleep and appetite. You might eat too much or lose interest in eating. Similarly, you might have trouble sleeping or start sleeping a lot more.

Of course, there are several subtypes of depression, but Gary Duke of Trinity Integrative Care is using IASIS MCN (Micro Current Neurofeedback) to try to reduce all types of depression in patients. It doesn't help everyone, but Duke has seen many patients respond after just a few sessions. He's had some patients comment that they are free from depression for the first time in years!

"IASIS MCN (Micro Current Neurofeedback) is different from other forms of neurofeedback," according to Trinity Integrative Care's website. "It provides transcranial electrical stimulation to the person's scalp and produces a measurable change in the brainwaves without conscious effort from the individual receiving the feedback. The result is a changed brainwave state and a much greater ability for the brain and nervous system to regulate itself."

MCN can reduce symptoms for several other issues, including anxiety, ADHD and ADD, post-traumatic brain injury and PTSD. Accordingly, Trinity Integrative Care offers a 25 percent discount to veterans and first responders, as well as a sliding scale fee for those who are unable to afford care.
