Home Remedies for Depression, Natural Treatment



Depression is a state of mental agony characterized by very low spirits, and hesitation and aversion towards activities. The problem of depressive disorder is as old as human civilization. In Bible we get a reference of King David suffering from a depressive state of mind. Sigmund Freud in his theories stated that depression springs from a consistent sense of guilt or any other mental conflict. A person going through depression may go through a stagnant and prolonged period of sadness or 'melancholia' as stated by Hippocrates. He or she may feel himself or herself completely worthless and helpless.

Anxiety, a sense of void, unnecessary fear or paranoia, hopelessness, feeling of stress, irritation, sleeplessness and restlessness may be experienced by the person suffering from depression. People of any age group and belonging to any walk of life may fall prey to depression. Negative happenings in life like death of a close one, or any other loss, an accident or poor professional or academic performance, insults from close ones or in professional world, failures in fulfilling any kind of ambition or wish, spousal dissatisfaction may dump a person in to a state of depression.
