Understanding Depression

Depression is quite commonly used term by each and every individual today. However, what we really need to know is what exactly the term means? 

If we talk about india, we are considered to be the most depressed nation according to recent research. 

It is an emotional state which can be experienced by anyone and at anytime. It is a condition that can develop in both men and women, from people with different socio – economic status. Some popular faces have also fought with this battle – the much talked about celebrity owen wilson, angelina jolie, johnny depp, deepika padukone, sanjay dutt, jiah khan to name a few.

Over the years, immense amount research has also shown that women are more prone to depression and suicidal tendencies. The age of onset of depression usually starts with puberty, as one experience hormonal changes which in turn can trigger depression. One can also develop depression in childhood and sometime can also develop this condition in 20’s and 30’s. Depression can also have a late onset ranging from 45-50 years.

If we talk about our present lifestyle, we all experience ups and downs which in turn produce different kind of emotions in us. There are some primary emotions experience by all, these include happy, sad, afraid/surprised, and angry/disgust. The emotion commonly associated with depression is sadness. If this sadness takes over your life along with feeling of emptiness and despair what you are likely to experience is depression. Therefore, sadness completely does not define depression.

There are various types of depression, however, the most common symptoms of depression includes –

  • Depressed mood or irritability nearly every day.
  • Decreased interest or pleasure in most of the activities which once enjoyed.
  • Significant weight gain or weight loss (change of 5% of body weight).
  • Increased or decreased appetite.
  • Sleep disturbances.
  • Diminished ability to think or concentrate on a task.
  • Fatigue or loss of energy nearly every day.
  • Feeling of hopelessness, worthlessness, helplessness or guilt.
  • Frequent thoughts of death or suicide plan.


These symptoms can be caused by various factors and these causes vary from individual to individual. The most common contributing factor includes –

  • Genetics – is the most common contributing factor. Any family history increases the likelihood for the development depression.
  • Abuse – any form of physical, sexual verbal or emotional abuse can trigger depression.
  • Life events – such as death or loss of a loved one, unemployment, financial problems, academics and work stress can be a contributing factor.
  • Hormonal changes – that are especially experienced by women during menstrual cycle or at the time of pregnancy can develop this condition.
  • Body image – how we perceive our body has a profound impact over us. Those who as specially dissatisfied with their appearance are on high risk for developing depression.
  • Addiction – any form of addiction like alcohol addiction, gambling has found to have a significant relationship with depression. Recent studies have found that internet addiction is also one of the developing factors associated with depression.


It is not easy to handle depression on your own, what one needs is a professional help. You need to seek help from a psychiatrist and a psychologist in order to overcome this condition. However try to follow these simple tips in your life to avoid the possibility of developing depression –

  • Construct a daily routine for self.
  • Set achievable goals in life.
  • Express yourself and share your problems with your loved one.
  • Have a balanced diet.
  • Take good amount of 6 -8 hours sleep.
  • Exercise five days a week for at least for 30 minutes in a day.
  • Visit an ngo, old age home by offering a helping hand for mental peace and satisfaction.

That might be due to knee pain or it might be due to ankle pain. Our suggestion would be to do hot water fermentation along with Cold (ice) therapy. You shall also keep a pillow under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes.

I am suffering from lift side neck pain. Can you suggest me any tips while sleeping.
This is cervical pain (neck pain) and that's the reason the pain radiates until the shoulder blades. If you keep ice that would help and along side you can do hot water fermentation. You shall use cervical collar which would help you to reduce the radiating pain ie. Due to the nerve compression.

What could help most is counselling along woth medications. Medications helps you elevate your mood by increasing speciix neurotransmitters that cause low mood. But when life throws difficult situations its how best you can handle it and what alternatives could be essential in dealing with it. I d suggest get in touch with a psychologist near you. It will be very helpful and you would be able to be the previous cheerful you.

The pain stops after few weeks of medication and starts after I exercise or masturbate usually after I feel okay, I have visited doctors, they said it might be inflammation and prescribe some (Piroxicam, Diclofenac) and the pain goes away after medication and i've had several xray done and my joints are perfectly ok said NSAIDs the doctors. I still experience pain around my lower back, hip, upper back.

This is a general low back ache and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes, if pain still persists you can stretch your body by twisting the waist on both sides how we used to do in the school drill similarly you can try which will help you relax as well will reduce the pain. It looks like you are anaemic. If you have back pain after you sit for long hours then it is due to your haemoglobin levels as it is important to check that. Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having back / leg pain though there may not be any pathologicalreasons for back pain. If you have leg pain then you have to rule out the casues for having leg pain. Firstf all check your weight and your haemoglobin levels, as Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having leg pain though there are no issues with the knee joint or back pain. If not if the pain radiates down the back of thigh and legs then it might be due to sciatica. Kindly consult the nearby physiotherapist. Hope you recover soon from the leg pain. Physiotherapy treatment:Ift and swd can be done for localized pain.Ift and traction can be done if you have radiating pain. •Standing hamstring stretch: Place the heel of your injured leg on a stool about 15 inches high. Keep your knee straight. Lean forward, bending at the hips until you feel a mild stretch in the back of your thigh. Make sure you do not roll your shoulders and bend at the waist when doing this or you will stretch your lower back instead of your leg. Hold the stretch for 15 to 30 seconds. Repeat 3 times. •Cat and camel: Get down on your hands and knees. Let your stomach sag, allowing your back to curve downward. Hold this position for 5 seconds. Then arch your back and hold for 5 seconds. Do 3 sets of 10. •Quadruped arm/leg raise: Get down on your hands and knees. Tighten your abdominal muscles to stiffen your spine. While keeping your abdominals tight, raise one arm and the opposite leg away from you. Hold this position for 5 seconds. Lower your arm and leg slowly and alternate sides. Do this 10 times on each side. •Pelvic tilt: Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Tighten your abdominal muscles and push your lower back into the floor. Hold this position for 5 seconds, then relax. Do 3 sets of 10. •Partial curl: Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Tighten your stomach muscles. Tuck your chin to your chest. With your hands stretched out in front of you, curl your upper body forward until your shoulders clear the floor. Hold this position for 3 seconds. Don't hold your breath. It helps to breathe out as you lift your shoulders up. Relax. Repeat 10 times. Build to 3 sets of 10. To challenge yourself, clasp your hands behind your head and keep your elbows out to the side. •Gluteal stretch: Lying on your back with both knees bent, rest the ankle of one leg over the knee of your other leg. Grasp the thigh of the bottom leg and pull that knee toward your chest. You will feel a stretch along the buttocks and possibly along the outside of your hip on the top leg. Hold this for 15 to 30 seconds. Repeat 3 times. •Extension exercise: Lie face down on the floor for 5 minutes. If this hurts too much, lie face down with a pillow under your stomach. This should relieve your leg or back pain. When you can lie on your stomach for 5 minutes without a pillow, then you can continue with the rest of this exercise. This is a general low back ache and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes, if pain still persists you can stretch your body by twisting the waist on both sides how we used to do in the school drill similarly you can try which will help you relax as well will reduce the pain.
