Depression, for the purposes of this article, refers to the mental illness known as major depressive disorder. More info visits our website

This type of depression is a recognized clinical condition and is becoming a common condition in developed countries, which affected up to 20% of the population with this disorder at some point in their lives. Patients are usually assessed and managed on an outpatient basis, and only admitted to a mental health hospital, considering that pose a risk to themselves or others.

Causes for Depression

Genetics – genetic predisposition is a major cause of depression. Studies have shown that people who have a family history of depression are two to three times more likely to develop depression themselves.

Brain chemistry – Neurotransmitters like serotonin and certain hormones such as cortisol, a stress hormone have been linked to depression. Depression often occurs when the delicate balance of these chemicals in the brain is altered leading to an overall imbalance in other neurotransmitters.

Stressful events in life – As mentioned above, the stress hormone cortisol is particularly related to the neurotransmitters involved in depression. A stressful life event such as loss of a job, a loved one, marital problems or financial problems can cause excessive production of cortisol, resulting in depletion of serotonin and depression. People are especially at risk if they have no social support.

Diet for Depression

Reduce your intake of sweets

Sweets temporarily make you feel good as levels of blood sugar rise, but can worsen mood later when plummet.

Avoid caffeine and alcohol

Caffeine and alcohol both dampen the mood. Alcohol temporarily relaxes us and caffeine increases energy, but the effects of both are of short duration.

Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 is needed to produce the neurotransmitter serotonin improves mood, and dopamine. Although vitamin B6 deficiency is rare, a deficiency of the border can occur in people who take oral contraceptives, hormone replacement therapy and drugs for tuberculosis.


Most people do not have enough magnesium in their diets. Good sources of magnesium are legumes, nutty, entire grains and green vegetables. Like vitamin B6, magnesium is necessary for the production of serotonin. Stress depletes magnesium.

Herbs for Depression


S-adenosylmethionine (SAM-E) is an amino acid used in the treatment of depression. SAMe is an essential amino acid needed to maintain healthy neurotransmitter processes in the brain. People with depression often have inadequate amounts of certain chemicals in the brain. SAM works quickly to increase these levels and improve these factors poor with little or no side effects.

5HTP –

5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an amino acid is the intermediate step between tryptophan and serotonin in the brain chemical important, an important neurotransmitter in the brain. It specifically targets the symptoms caused by low serotonin levels and depression, changes in sleep patterns, etc 5HTP has also been successful to help you lose weight by suppressing appetite.

Ginkgo Biloba –

Ginkgo is found to be useful in relieving depression, especially in the elderly who suffer reduced blood flow to the brain, according to the results of clinical trials form. It is a powerful antidepressant and antioxidant that increases blood flow to the brain and other body parts. This improved blood circulation enhances memory, promotes cardiovascular health and relieves the symptoms of Alzheimer’s patients

New HIV Drug

A “breakthrough” new drug may be bringing scientists closer to a cure for HIV. According to evidence from preliminary testing by research doctors at the Neveh Or AIDS Clinic at the Kaplan Medical Center in Rehovot, Israel, a new drug has been demonstrated in a lab setting to make HIV cells “self-destruct.”

A person suffering with severe bipolar disorder shoplifts an armload of clothing during an attack of acute mania. He or she is sent to prison, to co-exist with gangbangers, rapists, and murderers. Or, perhaps worse, to live in a solitary cell with no human interaction, for 23 out of 24 hours each day. The acute mania shifts to severe depression.

In my practice, I have met many misconceptions about mental illness from patients and their relatives. I can’t blame them. Mental illness has not been understood for a while. In fact, it has created a stigma that people dismiss its importance and its impact in their lives. Some even hide their emotional difficulties from the scrutiny of their close friends and loved ones.

The Cure for Mental Illness is not one specific cure, but having suffered greatly in the past and now tasting freedom, I know there is a cure. It’s not a formula, but it is using the biblical tools God leads you to use. It’s a combination of things converging for YOUR freedom (or the release of a loved one or friend.) It’s a prescription from the Great Physician, Dr. Jesus Christ.

Integral to educating people about mental illness is dispelling myths. Hayes points out that mothers do not cause mental problems in their children, although their depression may affect a child’s development of it. However, it is just as likely a mother can prevent mental problems in her child. Hayes states, “Nurture mental wellness in a new mother and she then can nurture it in the child.

So are social worker’s fears well-founded? How much protection does the ADA really afford those with mental illness? According to Paul Appelbaum, MD, professor of Psychiatry at Columbia University, Past President of the American Psychiatric Association and chair of the APA’s Council on Psychiatry and Law, to qualify for the ADA, a person has to be impaired and “substantially limited” in one or more life activities.

Mental illnesses are not inherited. The similarities in behavior and dysfunction are not due to the actions of genes or other hereditary influences. Rather, the similarities result from a child (then, teenager and adult) enacting subconscious negative agreements and selfish behavior pattern-ideas that were taken-on (downloaded) from the parent displaying similar behavior. This subconscious child-to-parent agreement and pattern idea transfer will make the child appear “like” that parent.

Other mental illness symptoms are known to include a lost of interest in happiness and enjoyment and the tendency to social isolation when most people feel powerless, lonely and disconnected from other people and the world around them.

In such cases a person suffering of mental disorder is known to lose interest in former hobbies, sports, past times and social activities. Very often a mental sickness of different kind from depression to bipolar disorders is expressed as an irritable mood and explosive behavior.


Ten years ago when my son became ill with paranoid/schizophrenia all we could think of was that ‘this illness will go away soon and all will be well’. But it wasn’t quite that simple and there certainly are too many stories to tell now. Once you have seen your loved one go to the depths of ‘hell’ all you want is for them to be “OK”, well, anyway that was what we thought.

Having a withdrawn behavior and “lonely” attitude are some of the more important mental illness symptoms that need to be looked out for by family members and friends. Withdrawing from family life and social activities that had been previously enjoyed by the individual is one such symptom.
