Depression: Is it Related With Food?

Depression: Is it Related With Food?

Depression is a clinical, mental, and emotional condition that may give rise to feelings of hopelessness and chronic sadness. It slows down the way people process everyday activities and leads the patient to a sense of constant gloom and doom. It is a disabling mental condition as per WHO, and may be caused due to reasons like genetics, changes in the balance of hormones, stress, grief, trauma and prolonged, chronic physical ailments. Depression is also connected with food and nutrition. Do you want to know how?

Read on to see the three ways in which food and depression are connected. 

  1. Severity and Duration: Depression is a mental illness that signifies an imbalance in the hormones and the emotional faculties in the brain. Nutrition is the fuel that keeps the brain and body in prime working condition. When a depressive state sets in or becomes emotionally rooted, then nutritious eating and a proper diet take a back seat as the patient succumbs to a state where he or she is not concerned about the food intake. As a result, the brain and hormonal balance get further affected. This can have an adverse effect on the severity and the duration of the depressive mode, which makes it all a vicious cycle of sorts. Poor appetite, not having proper meals, skipping meals, eating junk, avoiding social settings where food will be served, and even emotional eating are all outcomes of depression too.
  2. Eating Disorders: Many patients who have eating disorders often experience deep rooted and chronic depression. Since despondency and hopelessness are the main characteristics of depressive behaviour, the outcome is that the patient tries to behave in a way that seeks approval. And in all this, the patient usually thinks that he or she is not 'good enough'. In such a scenario, the patient may start trying out fad diets and eventually fall prey to eating disorders like Bulimia that make the patient overeat and then vomit. These eating disorders usually come with phases of binge eating, throwing up, starving and then repeating the cycle again. Eating in secrecy is also a symptom of this condition.
  3. Nutrition to Fight Depression: Nutrition and proper food intake can build a sense of resilience by first of all improving the overall physical condition of the patient. This can take care of a lot of angst even as the minerals and vitamins travel to the brain for better functioning in the long run.

Ensure that you eat right as a part of your therapy for depression. This is as good as taking your medication on time. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

Dear, fear, trembling, sleep disorder, nervousness etc are due to general anxiety disorder. Are you diagnosed for anxiety disorder by your doctor? are you getting treatment from a psychiatrist? the medicines are ok. But medicines should not be continued for long. I request you to start psychotherapy techniques and meditation for easy relief from anxiety. Take care.

Your Addiction To Smart Phone Reveals Something Shocking About You!

Ph. D - Psychology
Psychologist,
Your Addiction To Smart Phone Reveals Something Shocking About You!
Smartphone Addiction is a Sign of Depression

There are some people who just never seem to get off the phone. They would be looking at their phones all the time, messaging, using social networking sites or simply clicking their pictures or playing games. A study suggests that addiction to the smartphone is linked to and serves as a sign of depression.

The study reveals that individuals who have been diagnosed with some form or degree of depression tend to use their phones more. In fact, smartphone addiction is correlated to clinical depression. So, if your teenage son or daughter or someone you know have been using their phones too often, then this might be a red signal towards depression.

Smartphone addiction can be seen as a compulsive behavior and is typically noticed among depressed people. At the same time, it can result in depression as well. People who are prone to developing depression symptoms may also use their phone more often. Their excessive usage and smartphone addiction may actually make them irritable and sad, looking at photos of others, noticing other people’s lives may make them feel that their lives aren’t perfect. This can in turn lead to feelings of extreme sadness, cause depression or even suicidal thoughts.

So, make sure that you keep a tab of how often people use smartphone in your family. If you suspect behavioral changes with smartphone addiction, consider getting a consultation with a psychologist or counsellor.

If a Schizophreniform patient who mostly seems normal is kept (in a rehab) with other patients who are at a severe stage, will their behavior affect this patient? As he is right now complaining that we have kept him with mad people and this is making him mad and he will commit suicide if not taken out of that place. Thought the doctors there say its ok, I am very concerned if I am doing right keeping him in there with such patients. Please help.

Schizophrenics are very suggestible and vulnerable by the nature of the disease. If exposed to other more disturbed patients he will certainly get more perturbed and may collapse in such circumstances. In some centers the more functional patients are given responsibility and do very well even though there are other more disturbed individuals. But since this boy si already complaining of a problem it must be factored in about keeping him there. Schizophrenics are also known to feign problems because they may not like the institution or may not like being institutionalized. However, my biggest concern is that he is threatening to commit suicide, if not taken out, and that is a life-threatening matter. But then if you give into this blackmail now, he may manipulate you later for other things too. When people threaten like this they are immediately put on suicide supervision to safeguard them. Find out if there are other circumstances that are actually a problem and if those can be rectified, he may be more amenable. Managing a schizophrenic at home is very difficult too. But if he is docile like you say then you may consider taking him out but he must attend some therapy as an outpatient.

Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Take care.
