Natural therapy against depression

Depression is a widespread disease. It is assumed that around one fifth of all Germans suffer from depression or chronic depressive mood at least once in their lives. The symptoms are varied and range from a drop in performance and loss of appetite to sleep disturbances. Various physical complaints may also occur. In the further course, anxiety is added, sadness or feelings of indifference. An inner restlessness becomes a daily companion for those affected.

The most common causes of depression

The possible causes of depression are manifold and vary from person to person. They range from genetic predisposition and neurobiological disorders to certain developmental and personality factors that, when combined, can lead to depression. People who suffer from depression have a lower tolerance for emotional and physical stress than healthy people. As a rule, a stressful single event triggers a depressive episode, such as a separation or the death of a close person.

Depression is not usually felt evenly, but runs in episodes. This means that there are phases in which the sufferer is well and feels a positive mood, followed by phases in which their life is dominated by sadness. It can also happen that people suffer a depressive episode only once and then never again.

There are numerous different treatment approaches for the therapy of depression. Particularly when the symptoms become chronic, people increasingly resort to medicinal antidepressants for treatment. However, these can also have severe side effects if used over a long period of time.

Cannabinoid therapy alleviates depression

Medical cannabis can be used to treat chronic, treatment-resistant depression and stabilize your emotions during a depressive episode. Unlike antidepressants, cannabinoid therapy is often associated with only minor side effects and is often used as a complement to psychotherapy or when antidepressants fail to work or place too much stress on the patient.
