Depression is a common sickness? Treatable? Depends on what approach you are taking. Those who are depressed are more likely to exhibit risky behavior with drugs and alcohol, as well as being more likely to attempt suicide. In fact, are more associated with a shorter lifespan than the smokers.
The standard course of treatment for depression is questionable medication. Often it takes a combination of two or more different medications to mask, control the symptoms, and it is a trial and error approach to find the right combination for each patient. Over one-third of patients don’t get lasting relief from the standard therapies. When medicine has been tried and doesn’t work then generally nothing can help cause doctors are not really dealing with the basic causes of the depression. Depressed people will thus face a hard life.
To Help with many person’s medical symptoms of their diseases, depressions too we still do often we may still have to deal with the root causes of the sicknesses too.. including the hypertension, stresses, anxieties, and our past wrong values, ignorance, wrong doings too.
No matter what the symptoms are the cause of heart attacks AND CANCER are the main reasons are still mostly the bad food you eat, including too much sugar and fats, or falsely skipping meals, or not sleeping 8 hours of Qualitative sleep, not getting enough exercise, 20 minutes every 3 days, and not handling negative personal stress effectively will affect your health but a serious issue is the failure to get a proper medical tests. such as an echogram.. The same major bad thing that causes the major sicknesses of heart disease cause Cancer, Arthritis and diabetes too often.. Most persons now would live much longer on the average, if they could collectively overcome five unhealthy habits: smoking, excess alcohol consumption, poor diet, sedentary behaviour and stressing out. Doing nothing about it now next will not help you We all sooner or later develop some form of major sickness that has to be dealt with.. . Doing nothing about it now next will not help you
Studies indicate that about 200,000 Americans suffer a heart attack each year without even initially realizing it. These unrecognized heart attacks account for about one-fourth of all fatal heart attacks, making this a serious public health issue. Just don’t expect the stereotypical “Hollywood” heart attack, where you see an actor clutching at the left side of his chest in severe pain. This is actually less common.
But one real aspect of likely an impending heart attack is the inability to bend down without pain, or a severe pain when breathing, not breathing easily or even a continual stomached pain etc… but heart conditions still do start of with showing up on your blood pressure.. .
ALSO SOME DOCTORS FEEL THAT BEING OVER WEIGHT YOU’RE MORE LIKELY TO GET HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, HEART DISEASE, AND DIABETES THIS HAS BEEN CLEARLY CONTRADICTED NY RECENT MEDICAL STUDIES.. BEING FAT IS NOT NECESSARILY UNHEALTHY
Being overweight doesn’t mean you’re unhealthy.. The same major bad thing that causes heart disease cause Cancer, Arthritis and diabetes too often.. By the way being skinny insures no heart attack is a lie, a myth as studies show that skinny persons die more over fat people still
If Obesity Is a Disease, Why Are So Many Obese People Healthy? Several studies have shown that physically fit “obese” individuals have lower incidence of heart disease and mortality from all causes than do sedentary people of “normal” weight. If the goal is to address the serious diseases of type 2 diabetes and heart disease, it would be more productive and accurate to urge doctors to focus on cardiometabolic risk, recognizing that there are both metabolically healthy and metabolically unhealthy individuals in all categories of weight. Rather than promote weight loss per se, doctors should instead encourage their patients of all sizes to incorporate physical activity and a balanced diet into their lives.
We all sooner or later develop some form of major sickness that has to be dealt with.. Human beings vary in personality and thus they also do even vary in their sickness treatment approach.. Some deny their sickness, some seek doctors, others seek alternatives, or the good or bad advices of their friends, associate.. clearly not all approaches are successfully..
The risk of developing breast cancer from drinking even small amounts of alcohol >is being ignored by women with thousands now needlessly dying every year. Less than two drinks a day can increase the risk of developing cancer, doctors have warned, after finding that even moderate consumption was linked to almost a third of alcohol-related cancers. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/02/drink-alcohol-and-die/
For a start it is always essential that we all do eat adequately, regularly, properly, that we all do get plenty of exercise, drink plenty of water, and that we all do get enough sleep, sadly many people lie to themselves they do not have to have get enough sleep..
Regular medical check ups by a good doctor is a must.. Merely trying to take drugs of the Pharmacy shelf is not a valid approach too.
Many of us face the common illness such as Colds, Flues, Heartburn, allergies, Asthma.
Now it is known that the primary cause of Asthma even in children is related to drinking milk, and consuming milk products.. check it out on the internet…. http://www.naturalnews.com/010443.html
Now studies have also now shown that besides our basic essentials there also a clear association between emotional stress and exacerbation of certain illnesses, even allergies, or the asthma in persons with asthma. This is particularly true also with children who have unstable asthma and with asthmatics who live in stressful circumstances. In the clinic, allergists have noted that the objective measurements of airway function and asthma symptoms are affected by stress. Not only can emotional stress trigger and asthma attack, but the reverse is also true. Asthma is a chronic disease which causes stress in a person’s life at home, school, and work. There is also a correlation between stress and prevalence of asthma. So one has to deal with both the stress and the illness here too
Learning to deal with any of our negative, unbeneficial stress is important. Not all of the stress that you face is beneficial. This first requires to honestly, accurately recognize the cause of your stress but also how next best to deal with it… and it could ne a false worrisome attitude or a troubling person. An honest Admission of the cause is always the best start. Many persons also do have false, harmful values that do them no good, whereas may others tend to falsely go overboard with the need, pursuance of even good things I was in a doctor’s office recently reading a dozen of the latest medical journals and I was shocked to discover that the majority of doctors were still unable to deal positively with sickness associated with negative personal stress.
Let’s first be fair to ourselves and others and note that no one thing specifically even now causes all the cancers, diabetic sick persons, or the heart problems in the world, rather it tends to be a combination of several different factors starting with our personal ignorance, and the false neglect of the our Bodies.
2: Not personally now getting proper food intake can also lead to severe depression and very poor health next, severe health problems.. skipping out on meals often is bad..
3: Activity rut.. many people who have now set into a none changing activities, environments, a habitual routine, are next prone to be seriously depressed and they do not even know why? Taking a new, totally different activity, or making a personal life schedule change is often the same as a beneficial vacation for some persons.. even many professionals, college professors..
Did you yourself now know the major cause of depressions and suicides., despair include.. you might be depressed seriously and not even know it too…
Feeling down from time to time is a normal part of life. But when sadness takes hold and won’t go away, it may be depression. More than just the temporary “blues,” the lows of depression make it tough to function and enjoy life like you once did. A person with severe depression has little or no interest in work or hobbies, and may even have trouble getting out of bed. With treatment and help, you can feel better. Learning how to understand depression – including its signs, symptoms, and causes – is the first step towards next honestly, realistically recognizing and overcoming the root main problem, causes and not just trying suppress or to deal with the symptoms..
Why Do People Get Depressed? Understanding Depression
I am too busy to have time to have a depression or to deal with my depression is not a realistic approach as well.
There’s a vast difference between “feeling depressed” and suffering from clinical depression. The despondency of clinical depression is unrelenting and overwhelming. Some people describe it as “living in a black hole” or having a feeling of impending doom. They can’t escape their unhappiness and despair. However, some people with depression don’t feel sad at all. Instead, they feel lifeless and empty. In this apathetic state, they are unable to experience pleasure. Even when participating in activities they used to enjoy, they feel as if they’re just going through the motions. The signs and symptoms vary from person to person, and they may wax and wane in severity over time. Doing nothing about it generally makes it worse next.
While DEPRESSION is one of the most common mental illnesses even caused often mostly by external factors, it often can easily be cured, dealt with if not neglected, and it is rarely fatal thus.
RESULTING PERSONAL DEPRESSION ITSELF IS basically CAUSED by biochemical imbalances in the brain involving the hormone cortisol and the neurotransmitters serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine. The tendency toward this chemical imbalance can be inherited, causing depression to run in families. A deep emotional loss may also trigger biochemical changes that cause depression. Or the brain chemistry can change for no apparent reason.
Other diseases, including thyroid conditions, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, hormonal imbalances, multiple sclerosis and some forms of cancer, can cause depression. Usually, treating the underlying diseases relieves the depression?
People suffering from chronic illnesses such as arthritis or heart disease may develop depression. For them, treating the depression often makes it easier to cope with the other chronic illness?
While virtually anyone can develop depression, the people most likely to do so include—
- Relatives of depressed people, who are about twice as likely as average to become seriously depressed themselves
- Women, who suffer depression about twice as often as men
- The baby boom seniors, generation, currently considered at greatest risk of all age groups
- The elderly, often as a reaction to physical deterioration and the loss of friends, families and rewarding activities
- Children who have suffered abuse or losses or who have a seriously depressed parent
- Chronically ill people
- Drug and alcohol abusers
TREATMENTS FOR DEPRESSION typically have high success rates, especially when recognized, admitted, PROPERLY DIAGNOSED. While only a third of people suffering from depression seek treatment, about 85 percent of those who receive adequate treatment have good results. It is ironic many people who too often mainly see others as being the sole cause of their own problems fail to see their own effective, proper solutions to it. We need not to lose a proper self perspective, solution now as well.
Depression is a major risk factor for suicide. There is a slow suicide approach as well, even brought on by ongoing problems, self pity, guilt, persecutions, oppressions Recognition of the problem can immediately lead to 90 percent of the solution. http://pbulow.tripod.com/
Britain has one of the highest suicide rates in Europe. Each year in the UK over 5000 people take their life. The Samaritans estimate that in the UK there is a suicide every 82 minutes. The charity Depression Alliance estimates that each year there are around 19,000 suicide attempts by UK adolescents whilst more than 2 million children attend GP’s surgeries with some kind of psychological or emotional problem.Each day, two people under the age of 24 commit suicide.
People kill themselves for a variety of reasons. Sometimes drugs and alcohol are a factor, as are social factors, poverty, deprivation, mental illness, or “psychiatric injury”. The difference is important because injury has an external cause – in other words, something – or someone – is liable. The differences between mental illness and psychiatric injury are often not recognized; understanding the differences could alter the verdict, perhaps from suicide to manslaughter. To see the differences between mental illness and psychiatric injury. Psychiatric injury- Bullying, harassment and abuse cause injury to health, which is often diagnosed as stress and anxiety but may also include severe depression.http://www.bullyonline.org/stress/suicide.htm
We also all do need to learn to deal effectively and not by an ostrich approach with unresolved stress, life’s problems, Bullies and much more.. http://thefocusonthefamily.wordpress.com/
How Is Depression Different From Regular Sadness?
Everyone has some ups and downs, and sadness is a natural emotion. The normal stresses of life can lead anyone to feel sad every once in a while. Things like an argument with a friend, a breakup, doing poorly on a test, not being chosen for a team, or a best friend moving out of town can lead to feelings of sadness, hurt, disappointment, or grief. These reactions are usually brief and go away with a little time and care.

Cancer: By 2010, cancer will be the leading killer in the world, surpassing heart disease, causing more deaths than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. Cancer rates are growing in developing countries as people adopt western lifestyles, including smoking, high-fat diets, fast food and less physical activity. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/12/09/AR2008120901814.html
More Home remedies for over Gastro-Intestinal diseases and disorders. Saliva Problems
• Without proper saliva, you cannot absorb your food properly, for food digestion begins in the mouth. Always chew carbohydrate (“starchy”) foods especially well. This includes such things as bread and all grain products, potatoes, etc. If you do not digest your food properly you can get acid reflux too.. get a heart tack and/or cancer
• If you have a dry mouth, take a little lemon juice or honey before the meal to stimulate the flow of saliva.
Vitamin A If you are not obtaining enough vitamin A, your saliva flow may be inadequate.
Vitamin A is an important nutrient. It is especially helpful in the bodies of infants and toddlers for fighting off the effects of viral infection. It helps maintain the immune system in both children and adults. It plays a critical role in the creation of thyroid hormones and is absolutely necessary for creating the pigments that allow you to see at night. You have to get your vitamin A to have healthy skin. Preserve and improve your eyesight with Vitamin A
If you get your vitamin A from food rather than supplements, what are the foods you need. Here’s the rather short list:
|Food||Serving||Vitamin A, measured as retinol equivalents||Vitamin A, IU||Retinol, measured in micrograms||Retinol, measured in IU|
|Cod liver oil||1 teaspoon||1,350 mcg||4,500 IU||1,350 mcg||4,500 IU|
|Egg||1 large||91 mcg||303 IU||89 mcg||296 IU|
|Butter||1 tablespoon||97 mcg||323 IU||95 mcg||317 IU|
|Whole milk||1 cup (8 fl ounces)||68 mcg||227 IU||68 mcg||227 IU|
(Source: The Linus Pauling Institute, Oregon State University, 2005.)
To this list, you could add skim milk, usually packaged with the artificial analog of the best natural vitamin A.
Note too many people develop allergic reaction to milk, as they get older, so cheese, milk products for them are unacceptable..
There’s also vitamin A in many breakfast cereals, and, were you inclined to use it as health food, caviar. Any natural food that’s rich in vitamin A is high in fat and cholesterol.
Although vitamin A is found only in foods of animal origin, some fruits and vegetables contain compounds, called cartenoids, that can be converted into vitamin A by your body.
It is important for you to regularly eat foods that provide high vitamin A or beta-carotene even though it is stored in the liver. Stored vitamin A will help meet needs when intake of provitamin A carotenoids or preformed vitamin A is low.
