DEPRESSION / ANXIETY
Depression is a condition in which a person feels discouraged, sad, hopeless, unmotivated, or disinterested in life in general. When these feelings last for a short period of time, it may be a case of “the blues.” But when such feelings last for more than two weeks and when the feelings interfere with daily activities such as taking care of family, spending time with friends, or going to work or school, it’s likely a major depressive episode. Major depression is a treatable illness that affects the way a person thinks, feels, behaves, and functions. At any point in time, 3 to 5 percent of people suffer from major depression; the lifetime risk is about 17 percent.
Anxiety disorders are a unique group of illnesses marked by persistent, irrational, and uncontrollable anxiety. These disorders include generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), panic disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), social anxiety disorder, and specific phobias.
Proper balancing of the brain and neurotransmitters (chemical messengers of the brain), natural nutritional supplements, a healthy diet and Soul Repair Technique (our method for clearing emotional issues) will help control depression and anxiety.
