DepressionDepression usually manifests itself with several symptoms. Typical signs of depression include: emotional instability, sleep disturbances, lowered self-esteem, crying, difficulty in performing your usual day-to-day tasks, loss of weight and/or appetite, over-eating, poor concentration, loss of energy or feeling of fatigue, thoughts of suicide, feeling of hopelessness. Any 4 of these symptoms that are suffered for a period of more than 2 weeks would be classed as depression.
Most people are aware of the fact that there are drugs - anti-depressants - that can modify these symptoms but there are many nutritionally related causes of depression such as: nutrient imbalances, disturbed blood sugar levels, lack of omega-3 essential fatty acids in the diet, hormonal imbalances, adrenal exhaustion usually brought on by stress, allergies, infection and elevated toxic load.
