The number of Depressions in Europe are continously rising. For this indication, there are mainly two different options available:
- Medications (e.g. Antidepressions)
Since 2006, Implant-Acupuncture is tested for depressions. This is a completely new approach for this disease. The main target of this therapy results in continous stimulation of different hormones. This is possible, because Implant-Acupuncture triggers hormones like dopamine and catecholamines, which proved to have a direct effect on mood and depression.
Due to permanent stimulation of the central nervous system, these hormones provide a better protection in case of hormone disturbances. Therefore, brain structures mediate a better control of the brain function. The first treatments for this condition (depression) is very promising.
