Subconscious Talk: Uncovering the real cause of Depression
63 Lincoln Street
Uncovering the real cause of depression
What really causes depression and how can we really solve it? Have you been told that depression is caused by a chemical imbalance in your brain?
What if I tell you that almost everything we have been told about depression and anxiety is wrong.
You don’t have to look very far to find someone who suffers from depression. If you don’t have it, you probably know someone who does. According to The World Health Organisation, depression is the leading cause for ill health and disability. More than 300 million people suffer from depression and this number increases more than 15% a year.
Depression is not just a biological ailment, but an environmental and psychological one too.
In the ’90s, a Harvard professor named Irving Kirsch looked into antidepressant research. He discovered many antidepressants on the market were no more effective than placebos. He was the first of many to look into the questionable efficacy behind antidepressants.
Did you you know that scholars report that there are nine common reasons for depression, of which only 2 is caused by genetic influences or brain changes.
genetic influence in depression only account for 37 percent of cases
While some might see the notion that depression is not a chemical imbalance pretty radical, Johann Hari in his book, Lost connections, makes it very convincing.
We know that antidepressants do not work for many people, so looking for other ways to help people with depression is essential.
With a better understanding of depression you can be the difference for those around you.
Depression effects you in more ways than one and this event is not only for those that have depression, but for those that have loved ones, family, friends, co-workers or bosses that suffer from depression.
