Overcoming Seasonal Depression
I just wanted to share my story in the hopes that it helps someone. Long story short...I had S.A.D. for almost 30 years. I went to a integrative-holistic doctor who tested me for heavy metals. It came back very high for mercury and lead. The doctor explained that the metals blocked my ability to absorb vitamin D. I felt the worst in the winter when the sun was gone and I got even less Vit. D. I did chelation treatments, got the metals out of my system and the depression has not returned. I am of course, soooo grateful. Please do not rule out an actual physical cause for depression! Best of luck to you all of you who are fighting this.
