Holistic Treatment for Depression
It is normal for people to feel sad sometimes. When they have a bad day or experience a loss, for example, they may feel sad or say they feel depressed. However, when feelings of sadness or depression become more severe and do not go away, they can be problematic and may require treatment for depression.
Depression is a serious mental disorder that can have a significant negative impact on people’s lives, including risk of suicide. Without treatment, symptoms can worsen, resulting in more severe effects. While traditional treatment for depression can be effective, it is important to recognize that depression impacts more than just the emotions. A holistic treatment approach to depression is an effective way to address symptoms and result in greater mental and emotional health.
Why The Pouyan Method is the Best Treatment for Depression
Developed for and used exclusively by the Holistic Sanctuary, the Pouyan Method utilizes two aspects of the treatment program to help clients: ancient plant-based medicine and non-invasive therapies.
Ancient Plant-based Medicine
- Daily five-hour intravenous high-dose amino acid brain repair NAD IV therapy, which helps heal the physical body at the cellular level.

- While in the holistic treatment program, clients are given a healthy diet.
- The food provided is an organic, plant-based diet that is non-GMO, soy-free, gluten-free, and kosher.
- Junk food is not permitted in the program in order to contribute to the clients’ physical health.
The non-invasive therapies used to provide for the clients’ mental and spiritual healing are just as important as the physical interventions. In addition to extensive and in-depth one-on-one counseling sessions every day, clients have access to:
- Massage sessions for relaxation and stress-relief

Treatment for Depression in a Holistic Approach
Treatment for Depression: Healing the Mind
Treatment for Depression: Healing the Body
Treatment for Depression: Healing the Emotions
The most important aspect of depression treatment, particularly in the holistic treatment approach, is treating the emotions. Depression is primarily a disorder dealing with emotions (or a lack of emotions). Therefore, it is necessary that treatment address the way the patient is feeling and help the patient get where they need to be in order to feel better and be healthy. The treatment for emotions is closely related to treatment for the mind. Specifically, the patient uses therapy and medication to address the negative feelings and change thought patterns to increase positive feelings. One way this can be accomplished is by focusing on the positive emotions and experiences rather than the negative feelings and traumatizing experiences. This can be difficult to accomplish, but it is effective when used as part of a holistic treatment approach.
Whether feelings of depression are minor and can be handled with occasional therapy or are severe and require residential treatment at treatment centers, it is important to seek treatment for depression in order to heal. Depression can have a significant and negative impact on the individual’s life and, if left untreated, depression can worsen, putting the individual at risk for suicidal ideation and actions. The sooner treatment begins, the more effective it can be at easing symptoms and helping the individual find relief.
