People who suffer from highly stressful conditions like emetophobia are vulnerable to developing depression. Some emetophobics find it easier to deal with their phobia by first relieving the depression which makes them feel unmotivated.
Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) is a rare treatment for disorders like depression. It works to create a seizure in the brain which can eliminate depressive symptoms. The idea of having a seizure is not something most people are comfortable with, which is why ECT is usually a last resort. On the other hand, suffering with major depression is just as undesirable.
Doctors are now exploring a new technique for treating depression called repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS). This form of treatment uses magnetic pulses to change the chemistry of the brain. This helps to regulate mood.
Read what a doctor has to say about the safety of using rTMS and how effective it is for treating depression.
