Depression

Depression is a condition in which people are characterised by low mood, loss of interest in daily activities, low self-esteem, lack of energy and poor concentration that lasts for long periods of time.

Treatment methods
  • Psychotherapy
  • Self-help
  • Medicines


Depression can usually be managed by correcting imbalances in brain chemistry and central nervous system chemistry. Instead of prescription drugs, it is quite common to use diet, supplements, and amino acid therapy to achieve this goal.

About one in five people suffer from depression at some point in their lives. People suffer from depression at any age.

We prioritise biochemical recovery. Depression cannot be controlled if it is a deficiency of any neurochemicals that is the cause of the illness. This is the missing link in most treatment programmes today. If the neurochemical balance is not restored, most patients leave treatment centres and almost immediately relapse and revert to their previous behaviour.

Symptoms of depression

Depression is characterised by a number of symptoms including:

  1. Persistent low mood, with particular worsening in the morning
  2. Irritability
  3. Frequent crying
  4. Loss of interest in social activities
  5. Fatigue and poor concentration
  6. Difficulty making decisions
  7. Feelings of helplessness, worthlessness, or hopelessness
  8. Feelings of guilt
  9. Thoughts of death and suicide
  10. Anxiety
  11. Loss of libido (sexual desire)
  12. Sleep disturbances, either trouble falling asleep or waking up earlier than usual
  13. Disrupted eating patterns, either loss of appetite or overeating
  14. Unexplained or worsening physical pains
  15. Sluggishness

Complications of depression

At least half of people who have experienced severe depression once will experience it at least once more. People under the age of 20 and members of the older generation are most prone to manifestations. Depression can be linked to suicide: nearly two-thirds of suicidal people have experienced depression.

Psychotherapy | Depression treatment in Switzerland

With psychotherapy, we identify the underlying issues that have led to depression and work to address these problems. Our primary psychotherapeutic tools include cognitive-behavioral therapy, DPDG (Dynamic Psychosocialsomatics), hypnotherapy, and positive psychology.

Self-help | Depression treatment in Switzerland

We assist our clients in learning relaxation methods, including self-hypnosis, tailored fitness programs, butterfly DPDG technique, biofeedback, yoga, and meditation.

Medication | Depression treatment in Switzerland

Our goal is to avoid prescribing medications unless absolutely necessary. Typically, we do so in severe cases of depression or anxiety, and we carefully monitor the effects of medication, aiming for short-term use. Our objective is to address the root of the issue rather than merely treating symptoms.

Individualized approach

To meet the specific needs of each client, the Cusnacht Clinic provides a personalised approach to treatment. We only treat clients individually and not in groups, meaning that our entire clinical team (comprising doctors, psychiatrists, psychotherapists, counsellors and nutritionists) and our complementary therapy team (including yoga, acupuncture, reflexology, massage therapists and personal trainers) work with just one client and their family. We look deep into the symptoms to understand the function of addictive behaviour in the client's life. Once we identify the underlying causes of our client's disorder, we treat them using evidence-based interventions.

Unique and effective approach

We work with clients to help them regain control over their symptoms, recover from trauma, and develop the necessary skills to break free from addictive behavior and thinking in their daily lives. We use medication only as a last resort. Treatment may include some or all of the following components:

  1. Detoxification aims to rid the body of toxins that have accumulated from the environment, food, water, and medications. To achieve this goal, various methods are employed, all under medical supervision.
  2. Laboratory analyses are conducted to determine the biochemical and neurochemical imbalances of each client. Based on these results, we generate a computer-generated formula of micronutrients and amino acids to restore the biochemical and neurochemical balance. This formula is as unique as the client's fingerprints. The laboratory data is also used to determine the menu prepared by the client's personal chef to maximize the restoration of biochemical and neurochemical processes.
  3. Psychotherapy is used to identify and treat the underlying psychological issues that led to addiction and other mental, personality, social, or family problems identified in the treatment plan. Psychotherapy may include:
  • Cognitive treatment methods
  • Clinical hypnotherapy/trance work
  • Mindfulness practice
  • Somatic experiences
  • EMDR to remove triggers and stressors
  • Positive psychology
  • Family therapy
  1. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) - the use of magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain to alleviate symptoms of depression.

  3. Additional treatment methods include:
  • Yoga
