Patients come to the Whitaker Wellness Institute looking for safe solutions for a wide variety of health problems. One common concern is depression. Affecting millions of Americans, this condition wreaks havoc on patient’s lives and the lives of their loved ones.
Fortunately, there’s hope and it’s not in the form of dangerous antidepressant drugs. It’s neurofeedback, a remarkable natural treatment for depression that allows patients to regain hope and find a new lease on life.
People who are anxious or depressed often have disturbances in the electrical activity in specific areas of the brain. Neurofeedback is a type of biofeedback that helps normalize this activity. Electrodes attached to the scalp monitor and transmit information to and from the brain while patients simply relax and watch a program on a computer monitor. Sessions last about half an hour and are repeated as needed until healthy brainwave patterns are restored.
D.J. Used Neurofeedback as a Natural Treatment for Depression
D.J., a patient from Texas, shares her experiences with neurofeedback.
I’ve been dealing with depression and anxiety for the past 10 or 12 years. I’ve always been super sensitive and worried about what other people think, but it got to the point that I couldn’t bear to interact with others or even leave the house. I was pretty much a hermit.
My doctor prescribed antidepressants, which I took for years—until I started reading about their downside and stopped taking them. I didn’t feel any difference at all! I looked into alternatives and tried everything I read about, but nothing really helped.
Through my research, I learned about Whitaker Wellness, and as a last resort, I decided to make an appointment and go to your clinic. I went through your Back to Health Program and was treated with IVs, bioidentical hormones, and natural thyroid. Most impressive, however, was neurofeedback. It helped so much that I returned several months later for additional treatment.
It’s been a few years since my last visit to Whitaker Wellness, and I’ve made great progress. I’m much happier, more energetic, and motivated to get out and do things. I volunteer as a mentor for a first grader (I was a teacher for 35 years) and take care of my young granddaughter, which I couldn’t have done before. My friends and daughters also notice tremendous improvements.
My stay at Whitaker Wellness was a wonderful experience. Neurofeedback has made me feel calmer, more relaxed, and capable of being a ‘real person’ again.
Neurofeedback Is a Versatile Treatment
In addition to its effectiveness as a natural treatment for depression, neurofeedback is also beneficial for patients with insomnia, anxiety, migraines, ADHD, autism, smoking and other addictions, and more.

At Whitaker Wellness, we never turn to dangerous prescription drugs to boost mood and alleviate depression and anxiety. Instead, we focus on neurofeedback, lifestyle changes, personalized nutritional supplement regimens, and other tried-and-true natural treatments for depression.
Another point to consider: Look for and treat underlying conditions that may be linked with depression, such as imbalances in thyroid, adrenal, and sex hormones; heavy metal toxicity; food allergies; insomnia and sleep apnea; and nutritional deficiencies. Pain and other health challenges affect mood as well, and depression often disappears with appropriate treatment of chronic disease.
Life is stressful, and we all experience fear, sadness, grief, anxiety, and negative emotions. But that doesn’t mean you need a drug that messes with your brain chemistry. Give these natural therapies for depression a go—and let me know what works best for you.
