Would Going Tanning be Beneficial for Depression?

Q: Would going tanning be beneficial for depression?

A: Some studies have shown some benefit, but you should also look at the possible root cause of your depression. Depression can be due to neurotransmitter imbalance. This can be due to a wide variety of reasons, with Adrenal Fatigue being one of them. Cortisol, DHEA, testosterone and estrogen are all produced in the adrenals. Decreased levels of each of these hormones and reduced adrenal function have been linked to depression. It comes as no surprise that adrenal exhaustion is strongly associated with increased fears, anxiety, depression, brain fog, and difficulties in concentrating. People with adrenal exhaustion often have less tolerance than they normally would and are more easily frustrated.
