The World Health Organization (WHO) now recognizes acupuncture as a complimentary treatment for 104 conditions, one of those conditions being depression.

It is important to understand that according to researchers, low levels of serotonin in individuals can make an individual prone to addiction, depression, crime, etc.

The reason for some individuals having lower levels of serotonin has not yet been determined. These same researchers hypothesized that it could be genetically related, but the environment, in the form of a physical or emotional trauma could possibly trigger it.

Many believe that the reason acupuncture (laser therapy) helps to relieve depression is because it stimulates the release and synthesis of serotonin.

Acupuncture (laser therapy) also causes the release of endorphins in humans and noradrenaline – norepinephrine in animals.

In general, “increased levels of serotonin and endorphins are consistent with emotional well-being.”

Many other scientists acknowledge the need for more research in this area in order to establish the exact mechanisms of these neurotransmitters, and how they are linked to acupuncture (laser therapy).

After reading through many studies it seems that several scientists are willing to acknowledge the use of acupuncture as a treatment for depression.

Many studies even report that acupuncture is as effective in treating depression as antidepressants. According to researchers traditional treatments for depression, such as psychotherapy and pharmacology, work for roughly 50% of the patients who finish the treatment.

There are many patients however, who do not finish these treatment because of unbearable side effects or disillusionment with their medication or psychotherapy treatments.

More research definitely needs to be done to better understand acupuncture’s (laser therapy) effect on depression, but it looks like acupuncture (laser therapy) can develop into a very promising treatment for depressive disorders.

Laser therapy may not work for all patients, but it is definitely worth trying, since it is painless, inexpensive and free of side effects.
