Depression

Most people have occasional low moods, but in depression they become persist for months or years. Feeling tearful and low, particularly in the morning; lack of energy and confidence; find it hard to concentrate or make decisions; sleep problems, loss of sex drive; changes in appetite; frequent crying spells; and suicidal thoughts are the symptoms of depression. Depression is often a reaction to a life event such as bereavement, or it may have no obvious cause. Some women have depression after childbirth and lack of sunlight in winter makes some people feel sad. Antidepressant drugs are commonly prescribed for depression but carry with them many side effects. Natural remedies can improve mood and eventually restore a balanced feeling of well-being.
