Holistic Approach to deal Depression

By: shekharofficial24 Posted May 23, 2019 Mobile 46 Views

Every second person in today's world including teenagers are talking of being depressed. We shall know first what exactly is depression?

Is depression on the psychological level only or, it affects the physical level also?

We have a tendency to look at a particular aspect of a problem. What's actually needed is a holistic(end to end observation of the problem) approach towards every problem. At psychological level, causes of depression can be expectations- own as well as others. Numerous failures can also be a reason resulting in the person thinking of his inability to perform. Here it is important to know that no other person in the world can work at your psychological level, you and only you have to conquer this level.

Let's think of our mood. When we are sad, we like listening to sad music which makes more sad. This is because of the release of stress hormone- Cortisol. This is basically how psychological stress builds up.

Those were some psychological causes, but what about physical ones. Sometimes you might have observed situations in which nothing happened to you but you were feeling bad and restless. For example,the state of sickness. Diving a little into medical facts, some chemicals such as Serotonin and Dopamine should release normally in the body. When we are sick, the medical dose helps in artificial release of these chemicals. Basically the medication is based on the symptoms rather than the cause.

When you observe minutely you will understand that the physical reason for stress is "the fuel". By fuel here I mean all the five fundamental elements- earth, water, fire, food,and air. Lack of any of these elements can lead to stress. If you are hungry, you can be stressful.If you are thirsty, you can be stressful and hence forth. Ayurveda also tells that "Stomach is the root cause of every disease" So take care of your fuel and you will not have any stress. For diet, avoid white food material including sugar,salt and white bread ?? etc.

Think of a situation in which you are left in a dark room for 4-5 days. You have the access to food and water but after 5 days when you come out you will be stressed for sure because of lack of sunlight(fire) fuel.

One most dangerous impact of medication is that the person needs to increase the now dose everya now and then that has side effects also. So focus on the cause instead of symptoms.

That's all for the day. Be stress free.

Live. Smile.Love.
