Depression can kill if you allow it. Many people are suffering with depression, because of overwhelming stress. With wars, poverty, and violence going on around us is it any wonder that depression is an issue? As per the statistical report it has been proven that depression directly links to increased heart attacks and heart disease.
Researchers have not proved that depression is the only cause of heart disease, but they do feel it is a contributor of heart diseases. The root cause for suicidal increase is depression. Yet the fatal mistake that doctors make is over medicating the patient.
Depression medications not only suppress the problem but also contribute to medical issues. As a result, the depression problem is still there. Everyday studies are finding new information and yet the information is often tossed to the backseat while traditional depression treatments continue.
Depression Medication â€“ Postmenopausal Issues
Depression also has linkage with postmenopausal issues. After careful research, it was shown that antidepressant drugs might cause more harm to patients. Observations revealed that women who used depression medication were at higher risk of heart attacks.
Survey conducted by Internal Medicines claimed that out of more than 90,000 women over the age of fifty, 16 percent were suffering with major depression. Half of these women were taking depression medications.
The researchers continued their studies and found that postmenopausal women suffered depression, and because of taking depression medications, over half the women were at risk of death related to heart diseases.
Depression Medication â€“ Fractured Bones
In 2003, another research concluded that the percentage of women at risk would also subject to fractured bones, and that more than 8,000 women over 65 were taking prescribed depression medications and the medicines had affected the central nervous system.
Researchers inferred that after taking prescribed depression medications for five years the women were noticeably showing risks of fracturing bones, and those that did not take the depression medications lived healthier lives.
After careful studies researchers concluded that, the prescribed depression medications were the linking cause of psychical symptoms. In order to reduce depression, one must eat healthy, exercise, write in journals, and use self-induced analytic profiling and evaluation of self.
Depression And Spine Injury
Another studies have revealed that when the spine is injured or out of alignment, it is linked to depression, which is often caused by stress. Chiropractor can help us to get our spine back in alignment, which has proven to relieve stress and depression.
Depression Self Help
Stay alert to your mental health and avoid floundering, as this contributes to depression. Get out of the house and socialize. Read a good book or write one yourself. Take up a sport that you may enjoy.
As I analyzed this distraction, I concluded, that depression is a mask of broken memories backed with links to medical issues formed and ignored. The spinal and nervous system are remarkably relative if not constituting the main cause of this distraction. What happens is people that suffer fail to exercise, sit straight, bend appropriately, and so forth. The result, the spine is dislocated. When the spine is out of line, problems will arise.
