      Depression makes a person less able to function. It is a real illness with real effects, and it is certainly not a
                                      sign of failure. But it is very treatable.

   ? Are you a sufferer of chronic depression? Are you being treated with anti depressant medication
and talk therapy? Are these treatments working for you? A lot of people tend to find positives in the
treatments. For two years I've been taking Zoloft and it has helped me feel better than ever. Medication
has definitely, come a long way.

Unfortunately there are others who cannot seem to get the same effects. Is this you? No matter which
medications they try and regardless of who they talk to they can't seem to find relief. What's so
disturbing is that this is not uncommon. Depression is a complex disease that affects as many as 20
million different people.

It's not easy for a therapist or doctor when it comes to figuring out just the right combination of
medication and talk therapy considering just how different we all are and how differently we respond to
treatment. Wouldn't it be helpful if we could put ourselves in a position where we had a much better
chance of getting these treatments to work?

Studies have concluded that a person's diet can have a significant effect on depression and its

The Diet to Prevent Depression:

There is scientific evidence that proves that certain foods can help to eliminate the symptoms
associated with depression. In addition, there is conclusive evidence that eating foods that contain
particular ingredients can prevent depression. Here is a look at some of the essential foods and
ingredients that can prove to be absolutely vital to your mental health.

1. Omega 3 fatty acids available in fish oils are necessary in the relief and prevention of depression.
Research with the most recent study conducted by Ohio State University has shown that depressed
people often lack the correct balance of fatty acids. Current recommendations allow up to two servings
each week of cold-water fish and the best source of Omega 3 comes from salmon and trout.

2. Treating depression and mood elevation has been very successfully achieved when vitamins such
as Vitamin B12 were used to treat the conditions. Although researchers are not sure why, a lack or low

volume of B vitamins may be a cause for depression. You can get these vitamins from items like
spinach, salads, avocados, and similar items.

3. Many minerals are essential with regard to alleviating depression. It has been shown that some
people may have a deficiency in minerals such as magnesium, calcium, zinc, manganese and
potassium, when suffering. Iron deficiency, also known as Anemia for example has been found to be a
major offender when it comes to depression. The minerals you need to fight depression can be found
usually in meats and vegetables.

Foods to Avoid:

Just as there are certain foods that actually work to reduce the possibility of developing and enduring
symptoms that are associated with the "blues", there are certain foods, beverages, and ingredients that
should be avoided or if you are experiencing depression or even if you are prone to depression.

1. Carbohydrates - Decreasing carbohydrates has been found to be extremely beneficial when it
comes to combating depression. Depression can be alleviated by the intake of carbs, which raise
serotonin levels. The problem is that after the high is complete the depressed mood returns - usually
worse than before.

2. Caffeine - When depressed, caffeine can make the situation worse. Caffeine is a stimulant that can
get you feeling "up". However, it too can bring you "down" really quickly.

3. Alcohol should be avoided as it is a natural depressant.

3. Sugar - Metabolism in a person's body can be swayed by large amounts of sugar entering it and
should be avoided if possible.

4. Salt - If you are someone who has difficulties struggling with depression, it is best to minimize your
salt intake.


We have all heard the saying "you are what you eat". This is especially true if you suffer from
depression and the symptoms of depression are not easy to treat being different people respond
differently to different treatment options.

One thing that is certain is that by maintaining a healthy diet you can relieve or even prevent
depression altogether.

                                              Depression And How To Avoid It
                                                     By Malcolm Moorhouse

 Depression can affect the working ability, family and social life of a person. This is why we should
never try to ignore or hide depression. It is important to be aware of the symptoms, the causes and
what possibilities we have to try and prevent it in our lives.

Each of us has had a depressing sad moment at some point in our lives. Depression is a normal
human reaction associated with bereavement, pressures of life or maybe the break up of a
relationship. Sometimes the feeling of sadness passes but sometimes it doesn't, if it becomes more
persistent it can lead to depression. Diseases of the nervous system are very serious and that is why it
is important not to ignore depression and to get proper help when we realize there is a problem.

Listed below are some symptoms of depression:

* Feeling sad * Loss of energy * Loosing hope in life * Not finding pleasure doing the things you used
to love * Can't concentrate * Always crying * Sleeping a lot * Can't sleep * Loss of appetite

What causes depression? This is a complicated question because there isn't a single cause for
depression. This is a complex disease that can appear as a result of multiple causes. Depression can
also be transmitted among people that are close to each other, by influence.

There is proof that people suffering from depression suffer brain changes. There is also evidence that
illustrates how depression can also be genetic. Children can be affected by parents who suffer from.
Also it seems that parents whose children suffer from chronic depression are more likely to be affected
themselves by this illness.

To prevent depression we have to know ourselves very well. Treatable depression can be hard to
prevent once we are already down in the dumps. The best method to avoid another crisis after a
chronic depression is to keep our eyes open for its symptoms and its causes. If we feel we are loosing
control then getting professional help would be the right direction to take.
