Some people cry a lot and feel sad. Others seem angry, irritable, or anxious. For others, depression shows itself in vague physical problems like constipation, muscle aches, and headaches. A depression definition includes a sense of inadequacy and a pessimistic attitude toward life with overtones of despondency and lack of activity.
Most people have feelings of sadness and depression once in a while, but the symptoms usually go away in a short time. If those feelings last for days and then weeks and prevent one from functioning normally, your sadness and depression definition may be more than a temporary mood. Depression is a total body illness. It involves thought, body, and mood.
Depression definition includes and affects every aspect of the way a person thinks about things, eats, and sleeps and the outlook on life. Those who suffer from depression are sometimes seen as being weak and not able to just snap out of it. Left untreated, depression can become a truly debilitating illness. It can turn an otherwise mentally healthy person into a hostage within their own body. Symptoms of depression are more than feeling blue.
Symptoms also include energy loss and fatigue almost every day; indecisiveness and impaired concentration; frequent feelings of guilt or worthlessness; too much sleep or insomnia; diminished interest in all activities; frequent thoughts of suicide and death; weight loss or weight gain or a sense of restlessness. If one or more of these symptoms are present every day or nearly every day for at least two weeks that could be a sign of clinical depression. (Depression will not be diagnosed if the symptoms occur within two months of the loss of a loved one. ) Depression can strike anyone at any time for any number of reasons, but genetics plays a part in determining who may suffer from depression.
Those with blood relatives who have suffered from depression definition are twice as likely to also suffer from depression. Research suggests that depression runs in families much like ailments such as diabetes and heart disease. Treatment as soon as possible is essential to overcome the effects of depression. It is not something that will go away by ignoring it. Symptoms may abate for a while, but depression will still be present. Unfortunately, there is still a stigma attached to depression, even though it is an illness just like diabetes or cancer. Some people are hesitant to seek help, afraid of being stigmatized, yet depression has a higher prevalence in South Africa, than many other countries.
People may seem ungrateful for all the blessings they have in life, if they admit to feeling depressed. For this reason, many people forgo medical treatment and prescription anti-depressants, yet live with the debilitating condition day in and day out. Deprex provides a natural alternative to prescription medication. It acts like an anti-depressant, although it does not need to be prescribed by a doctor.
The main ingredient of Deprex, St John’s Wort has re-emerged in the past few years as a very effective alternative treatment for depression. It offers a safe, non-addictive alternative to assist the body during times of anxiety, stress, and nervous tension ¿ naturally. Deprex has been used with great success in the treatment of PMS (premenstrual syndrome) in women. PMS often goes hand in hand with feelings of depression, insomnia, anxiety, and irritability.
Deprex would be effective for all these symptoms. The most convincing evidence for the efficacy and safety of St John¿s Wort is a meta-analysis published in the British Medical Journal August 1996.
The abstract reaches the following conclusion: St. John¿s Wort extracts were significantly superior to placebo and similarly effective as standard antidepressants . Documented side effects of St John’s wort include gastrointestinal symptoms (e.g. nausea), allergic reactions, fatigue and photosensitivity to sunlight in sensitive people with fair skin. The management of the last includes the use of sunglasses and sunblock creams. Deprex should be taken continuously for up to eight weeks before clinical improvement in mood may be noted. Research has shown that St John’s Wort extract seems to alter brain chemistry by inhibiting the breakdown of several neurotransmitters, including serotonin, dopamine and noradrenalin.
This results in an increase in the level of neurotransmitters responsible for mood and emotional stability inside the brain. Serotonin is mood-enhancing; noradrenalin is responsible for feelings of alertness and energy; dopamine is a feel-good brain chemical. One other effect seems to be that St John¿s Wort improves the signal produced by serotonin after it binds to its receptor site on brain cells. In this way, the messages concerning enhanced mood and wellbeing, being carried from one brain cell to the next, are transferred more effectively.
This mechanism of action on all three main neurotransmitters is unique and may partly account for the lower incidence of antidepressant-related side effects with St. John’s Wort. Most researchers believe that the effects of St. John’s Wort are due to a synergistic interaction between several of its many compounds. Pregnant women should not take Deprex since St John’s may cause uterine contractions, which could lead to premature labour. All antidepressants are contraindicated during pregnancy due to its possible effects on the development of the fetal brain and nervous tissue. For this reason, the herb is also not recommended during breastfeeding.
