|Symptoms of Teen Depression
The following are symptoms displayed by teens who are in a depression cycle. In most cases, they have low serotonin and dopamine levels in their brains.
|Withdrawn, no interest|
|No motivation at school or home|
|Feelings of hopelessness|
|Chronic sadness or anxiety|
|Use of drugs or alcohol|
Inability to focus, grades drop, absent form school
|Sleep problems. Stays up at night and sleeps all day.|
|Complains of headaches, fatigue, back and neck pain, or upset stomach|
|Unresponsive to friends or family|
|Won't eat or eats too much|
|Doesn't verbalize feelings|
|Shows interest in subjects related to death and dying|
|Finds no joy in anything|
|Sees only negative outcome|
|Exhibits anger and resentment|
|To affect any of the above symptoms, you must address an imbalance in brain chemistry. Serotonin receptors lining the gastrointestinal tract become depleted in response to stress, anxiety and depression. Supplementation can address the deficiency of neurotransmitters in the brain and put you back on track.
The nutrients of choice are TeenLink, NeuroLinks, and Super Balanced Neurotransmitter Complex. For a lesser concentration, supplement with Huperzine or Vinpocitene for at least 1 month.
According to Richard Restax, M. D., we are on the threshold of an age of medication-induced personality transformation. Avoid drugs - which only mask symptoms. Instead, feed your brain what naturally belongs there and you will see a natural transformation in your attitude and ability to effectively cope with life.
