In its simplest form, the term depression is used to describe a condition where a person is depressed more than usual. Being depressed for short periods
due to a funeral, or losing a job is completely normal and human. However being depressed for longer than normal periods is a problem that many people
suffer from. There are many different views and treatments available ranging from natural methods, to antidepressants.
When a person loses a loved one or something bad happens they usually go into a period of mourning. This is a natural way of dealing with things and
normally lasts between 1 day to 1 week depending on the problem. Most people can cope with the problem in this time and not suffer from depression.
For those who can’t, there is usually an underlying problem that needs to be addressed.
Many people that are depressed often seek medications such as antidepressants to “immediately” handle the problem. These can have severe side effects,
which in the worst-case scenario can lead to other health problems. Seeking medical treatment is always the first thought but there are natural methods
as well. These are important to consider and in many cases can be much better than medication.
The thing to remember about depression is that it’s a mental issue. Unless a person has other mental problems or physical damage to their brain then it can
be resolved without medication. Antidepressants don’t actually fix anything; they just put a band-aid over the wound and give you the illusion of having
the problem solved. If you want to take care of the problem naturally then you need to take a good long look at your life and what’s bothering you.
This is why many people prefer the medicated route. Facing your inner demons and problems when suffering from depression is just something most people
are not willing to do. However running from your problems doesn’t fix anything. Let’s say you‘re depressed because something’s wrong at home, or you’ve lost
your job. Antidepressants aren’t going to find you employment, or fix your home.
In order to handle this depression you need to find a way to resolve the issue at home, and find work. After doing this in most cases your mental outlook
will return to normal. Being depressed isn’t so much an affliction as it is an internal warning. This is a sign that something is wrong and you need to
It can be caused by physical problems, or by complex social and mental issues. Medication can’t fix the feeling of loneliness, or wondering if there’s
anything for you in this world other than your current surroundings. The modern world and especially western cultures like the United States, have developed
a disturbing habit. This habit is medicating yourself in order to feel good and not owning up to, and finding a solution to your problems.
If you suffer from depression, do not turn to antidepressants immediately. Take a look at your life, identify what’s causing these feelings, and then
resolve the situation. It’s important to never give into these feelings and pound them into submission. Only after getting a handle on yourself and being
responsible for your problems will you begin to be healthy again.
