Feeling sad, or out of sorts, maybe a bit blue? Variations of mood at different points during your life are common and natural. Depression occurs when these feelings become a persistent state of being rather than a passing mood.
Clinical depression can eventually affect a person's physical health and ability to perform regular daily activities. A depressed person may eventually experience suicidal thoughts and exhibit self-destructive tendencies if their depression remains untreated.
Symptoms of depression can be mild to extreme and physical as well as mental:
Depression can occur for a variety of reasons. Some cases of depression are caused by nutritional deficiencies, others cases of depression are the result of environmental factors, such as lack of sunlight in the case of seasonal pattern depression.
When a person visits their doctor or therapist and receives a diagnosis of depression, the medical practitioner attempts to prescribe the best remedy for their patient’s type of depression.
Remedies may be as simple as making lifestyle changes or dietary adjustments. In extreme cases of depression, prescription medications may be required to alleviate the condition.
It is important to follow your doctor’s orders and this is not intended as medical advice, but if you want to be proactive in your treatment, you may want to try using various natural remedies. Some of these will be more helpful than others, depending on the cause of your depression, but you may find that can help improve your condition on a day-to-day basis.
