Dr. Eklund spent three days in Hollywood. Florida attending a seminar entitled, “Illuminating the Path Forward:  Integrating New Approaches for the Evaluation and Treatment of Mood Disorders”

This was the topic of the 16th International Symposium on Functional Medicine.  As the course materials stated, only 1/3 of individuals suffering depression in the US receive treatment and more than half of those patients being treated for depression achieve little or no recovery using conventional pharmaceuticals.  In addition, pharmaceutical side effects contribute to poor compliance, often furthering incomplete resolution of symptoms.  A myriad of new approaches were discussed.
