Question: Someone can say that depression comes when you got some unsuccessful results in a life...You hate your work, you have no good deal with money, your relations with people are complicated, you are unsatisfied physically etc......But some people that have a lot of such problems keep on smiling and trying to avoid the low spirits and some people do not have many problems but they are always sad and depressed....So what causes the depression? How it is comes? how to heal? How to overcome? and is it true that depression is only for weak people?

Ask yourself: "Why do I feel depressed, and when did I first start to feel this way: can I associate this with any recent change in my life?" (if so, it is probably reactive [situational] depression: counselling, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy may be indicated, but most of life's adverse situations are resolved within 16 weeks, yet the medical criteria for depression, and the prescription of antidepressants is only 2 weeks!). Or, was it a more gradual thing, with no apparent cause? (a nutritional deficiency, hypothyroidism, environmental toxicity, or reactions to some medications, etc., becomes more likely as the cause). Antidepressants work quicker than the following; 2 - 6 weeks, but you may have to adjust dosage, or types. St. John's wort helps most people; tolerance doesn't develop, and the few side effects don't occur often, and even then are normally not severe (neither antidepressants, nor the wort should be relied on as a sole treatment). It doesn't cause sleeping problems, or weight change, but usually takes at least 2, and generally 4 - 6 weeks to become effective, but can sometimes work quicker than antidepressants. A recent, independent German double blind study showed it to be as effective as a commonly prescribed antidepressant, in cases of major depression, with far fewer side effects, and those were generally better tolerated, with a lower rate of discontinuation. Unlike antidepressants, where sexual dysfunction is a common side effect, it happens much more rarely with St. John's wort (I didn't experience any). A multidimensional approach to treating depression without medication follows. All except for no.

(1.) Take 4 Omega 3 fish oil supplements, daily: (certified free of mercury) it is best if consumed with an antioxidant, such as an orange, or its FRESHLY SQUEEZED juice. If vitamin E is added, it should be certified as being 100% from natural sources, or it may be synthetic: avoid it. In the winter months, if not getting sufficient daily exposure to strong light, see http://www.mercola.com/ SEARCHBAR: enter: "vitamin D3", & Go to a doctor and ask for a 25(OH)D, also called 25-hydroxyvitamin D, blood test. When you get the results, don’t follow the typical “normal” reference range, as these are too low. The OPTIMAL value that you’re looking for is 45-52 ng/ml (115-128 nmol/l)". The company which tests your levels has to be one of those using the correct form of test, and this topic is addressed via the searchbar at mercola.com - "vitamin D3; testing". Also take a vitamin B complex which is certified as being 100% of natural origin; a deficiency in vitamin B9 (folic acid, or folate) is known to cause depression. Around 30% - 40% of depressed people have low vitamin B12 levels. (2.) Work up slowly to at least 20 minutes of exercise, or 30 - 60 mns, 5 times weekly in daytime, outside.

well, the "true" depression in my opinion is literally feeling depressed in general without a causality. It's certainly seperate from only feeling sad emotions over actual tragic events in life. It occurs out of nothing and leeches onto other sad thoughts - but the spark was in the mind alone many times. I suffer from it time to time, not everyday - some weeks I feel fine, some weeks I only feel down 1-2 days, some I feel down almost the entire week. It's just random really, major tragic events do cause a different kind of depression though that feels like the natural form people feel from such a heavy cause. The clinical feels more like a mental slip of balance with colors, sound, feeling, taste and temperatures feeling colder in perception and sensation. It's a weird transition that occurs in about a 30-60 minute period in various strengths and durations. Often it doesn't last all day, but few times only sleep can help it pass. Many times, I have random sudden relief that also occurs too and I certainly can feel things just cheering up in a warming perception and sensation accompanied by reassurance in my self. Getting my mind very deep in logical thought can also relief the sensation, sometimes for many days after if the logical thought is very interesting and reoccuring in my thinking. Clinical depression is normally inherited or brought about through another chronic ailment (chronic pain, cancer..etc). Anything that disturbs our normal health too long can often promote depression.

wow, tristan is a idiot. depression genurally is kept under control by increasing serotoin in the brain via anti depressants. You also need some self motivation. Diazpam is a safe muscle relaxant and can be addictive... again tristan is a idiot.

Depression has nothing to do with being weak! It's either health related, situational, or a chemical imbalance.

It can be biological or environmental. A combination of both generally requires medication and cognitive therapy.

Cornelius Originally Answered: How can I afford treatment for depression when I have no money and I can't get a job because of my depression?
You can go to a University or free clinics in your area that offer Mental Health Services. Just do a little homework and find a place and they can usually work with people on a low income or even no income. They'll charge you pretty much what you can pay, and as for medication- There are even $4 prescriptions you can get at like Wal Mart and other Pharmacies. Don't worry about the money issue so much. If you really want to get better do what it takes and find a clinic and they'll work with you.
