Secrete Essential Remedies for Depression

DepressionEssential Remedies for Depression
The first thing to recognize when speaking of depression and the different treatments for it is that there are different types of depression. Each of these types might require a different treatment, to alleviate symptoms and cure the disease. Depression and suicide are very much connected to each other. Often patients who try to commit suicide are diagnosed with some form of depression or mental disorder like trauma.

A major event in a person’s life can result in ‘reactive depression.’ This is when a person physically and psychologically reacts to a problem extremely. Post-traumatic stress disorder is an example; this can result in a cycle of negative symptoms.

Talking therapy is a very good way of treating depression of this type. The therapy could be a counselor or a psychologist. It could be in a group setting, or it could be one on one. Additionally, an anti-depressant might be prescribed.

A chemical imbalance in the body can result in what is called ‘endogenous depression.’ Talking therapies are required, but this form of depression is a lot harder to treat than reactive depression. In the first instance, your doctor might prescribe some different anti-depressants. This will help bring you to the point of feeling sufficiently motivated to take part in counseling sessions.

Another form of depression is post natal depression. If the mother wishes to continue breast feeding throughout the treatment it can be difficult; the medication would then be transferred to the baby through the mother’s milk. Depending on how severe the depression is, the mother might be admitted to a clinic, providing there are a mother and baby unit. When treating this form of depression, it is best to keep the mother and baby together so that their bonding process continues.

These days something that is used is ECT (electro-compulsive therapy) this is only be used as a last resort after a patient has been on at least three different anti-depressant medications without results.

To increase the chances of treatments being successful, lifestyle changes must be made. It is advised that a balanced diet and abstaining from drinking alcohol will help the recovery process during treatment.

Acknowledging depression and seeking treatment does prevent suicide. Educating people in a positive way as well as providing useful information about mental disorders and health issues is important.

The above-mentioned methods are the most common ways to medically treat patients suffering from depression. However, aside from these, there is also a host of alternative therapies available.

Medication, counseling groups and psychology, ECT and of course a change in of lifestyle are all methods which can help to speed up the recovery of someone suffering from depression.
