Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), also known as depression or clinical depression, is a common and serious condition. There are different forms of depression with at least 2 weeks of symptoms, such as:

    • persistent sad, anxious, or “empty” mood
    • feelings of hopelessness or pessimism
    • irritability
    • feelings of guilt, worthlessness, or helplessness
    • loss of interest or pleasure in hobbies and activities
    • decreased energy or fatigue
    • difficulty sleeping, early-morning awakening, or oversleeping
    • appetite and/or weight changes
    • thoughts of death or suicide, or suicide attempts
    • aches, pains, headaches, cramps, or digestive problems without a clear physical cause and/or that do not ease with treatment

Traditionally, MDD is treated with pharmaceutical medications or psychotherapy, but NeuroThera has developed an innovative PBM treatment. Neurothera is going through clinical trials for dosage and benefits of the therapy which stimulates healing in the brain.
