General Depression Information
Depression is a mood disorder that is often triggered by a chemical imbalance or stressful situations. People suffering from depression experience ongoing sadness, low energy, irritability and general disinterest in daily activities. Depression is a medical condition and should not be considered a personality flaw or weakness of character.

Depression disorders are generally classified as either unipolar or bipolar.
Unipolar Disorder is a form of depression that occurs multiple times during a personís life.
Bipolar Disorder a type of depression characterized by mood swings that alternate between depression and mania.

Depression affects more than 17 million Americans and even more people worldwide. Anyone can suffer from depression, but women are twice as likely to develop the condition than men. Children and the elderly can also suffer from depression. Many people who suffer from the symptoms of depression do not seek treatment because they are embarrassed to admit their problem and think it will go away on its own. Unfortunately, depression is a medical condition that requires medical treatment, so anyone who suspects depression may be a problem should consult a doctor.

Possible Causes of Depression
Depression develops from a disturbance in the brain that affects mood, body, thought, behavior, appetite, sleeping habits, feelings and reactions to others. Depression is a medical condition and should not be considered a personality flaw or weakness of character. Factors that may trigger depression include allergies, certain drugs, chemical imbalance in the brain, chronic stress, hypoglycemia, heredity, illnesses, lack of sunlight, lack of exercise, nutritional deficiencies, excess weight, diet, thyroid imbalance and trauma. Depression can also be caused by other conditions, including osteoporosis, stroke and type 2 diabetes. Diet is a critical factor as food has an effect on the brain chemicals, neurotransmitters and behavior. A poor diet with a high intake of simple sugar and fat not only causes fatigue and sluggish circulation, but also has an affect on mood. Low levels of serotonin may lead to depression, anxiety, and sleep disorders.

Possible Symptoms and Complications of Depression
The symptoms of depression include depressed mood and inability to enjoy everyday activities for at least two weeks. Signs of depression include difficulty sleeping, poor memory, changes in eating habits, difficulty handling daily responsibilities, loss of interest in favorite activities, feelings of hopelessness, concentration problems and recurring thoughts of death and suicide.


Complications of depression usually stem from the medications taken to combat the illness, which may include insomnia, stomach upset and reduced sex drive.

Possible Lifestyle Changes for Depression
Eat a diet high in raw vegetables and fruits and complex carbohydrates as well as low fat proteins, like fish. Avoid simple sugars, granulated sugar, corn sweetener and any other processed sugars, fats and fried foods. Avoid caffeine, alcohol, nicotine and processed foods. Get regular exercise and drink plenty of water. Spend time in the sun to brighten the mood. Negative thinking patterns may be reduced through meditation or prayer. It is critical to unmask the negative thinking and focus on positive thoughts. A professional counselor may be helpful for recognizing bad habits. It may be beneficial to be tested for allergic reactions to food or other substances that may be affecting mood.
