Depression, You Might Not Know You’re Feeling Down

We all experience highs and lows. But it’s a cause for concern when the lows become increasingly often and begin to interfere with the functions of daily living.

Depression affects twice as many women as men and most people will not seek the help they need. Those who do seek the help, usually receive some type of drug therapy to mask the issues.

The Biggest Concern?

Many people do not realize that they are feeling depressed until they have overcome it or someone else has mentioned it to them. We tend to think that it was just a bad day. But when the bad days start to become more frequent, it begins to negatively affect your life, family and ypour livelihood.

Common Symptoms of Depression

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Sleep problems
  • Poor concentration
  • Changes in appetite
  • Hyper-irritability
  • Overwhelming sadness
  • Withdrawal
  • Chronic physical symptoms
  • Thoughts of suicide

Not Just in Your Head, A Whole-Body Experience

Since your mind affects your body, and your body affects your mind, changing your physiology can change your psychology.

Depression is really a condition that affects your whole body – body, mind, emotions and spirit.

It’s not something to be ashamed of, nor is it something that you can simply wish away. You can’t just put on a happy face and think it away or just “shake it off”.

Dealing with Depression | Finding Relief

A recent study, conducted by Duke University Medical Center, compared exercise with the use of a popular antidepressant. Those taking the drug saw a 38% relapse in their symptoms. In the exercise-only group, only 8% of participants experienced a relapse.

This shows that exercise may be a key element in elevating your mood and improving your health – whether you’re depressed or not.

Remember, you experience everything in life through your nervous system. If your nervous system is compromised, your life experience will be compromised. This is just one more reason to seek safe and natural chiropractic care first.
