Some cases of depression seem to have a clear trigger which can be: social, such as trouble with an unkind partner or disobedient children; financial, perhaps due to debt or a lack of job security; spiritual, resulting from not getting answers to important life questions; drug-related, as a side-effect of recreational or prescription medication. Sometimes genetic factors can be involved or the person may have experienced abuse, loss or trauma. Other cases of depression may not have a clear cause but can be as a result of a variety of factors. These can include dehydration and nutritional deficiencies including vitamin D, zinc and chromium. Sufferers may have an addiction to sugar, alcohol or drugs. Allergies and intolerances, particularly to glucose can contribute or there may be an excess of histamine (histadelia). Insufficient sleep will compromise melatonin production. One type of depression known as Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is caused by a lack of sunlight and therefore, vitamin D.
Depression is characterised by feelings of guilt, despair and not being capable of taking action to help themselves or others. Patients may be lethargic, irritable and unmotivated, getting easily confused and feeling like their mind is blank. Some sufferers have compulsive behaviours that they are compelled to carry out or struggle with irrational phobias. They may also change their eating and sleeping behaviour and show a lack of interest in activities they usually enjoy. Crying easily is a common feature and many depressed people try to take their own lives or think about doing so. Some people with depression will have histadelia which can cause them to salivate excessively and as a result be less susceptible to cavities; they may also struggle with severe insomnia and develop an addiction to sedatives taken to help them sleep.

The best diet to maintain good mental and physical health is one including many complex carbohydrates, meaning a balanced range of fruit and vegetables. Adequate hydration is also important and the diet should incorporate a suitable amount of salt. A regular sleep pattern and sufficient amounts of sleep will encourage melatonin production. It is important that the depressed person has support from their family and friends and any negative influences, such as from the media, entertainment or associates, should be avoided. They should be encouraged to take part in activities that they will enjoy. Some people find it helpful to have psychotherapy so that they can discuss their feelings with a professional. Scientists agree that physical exercise has an important part to play in improving mental health; the exercise should be hard enough to raise the heart rate. Anti-depressants are one of the most common treatments available to treat symptoms of depression. In extreme cases, electroconvulsive therapy may be used or a person who is a danger to themselves and others may be legally sectioned or incarcerated.
Experiences and case studies
A 63-year-old man was suffering from Parkinson’s Disease and Manic Depression. After just 3 bioresonance treatment sessions, the results were obvious; the patient had become psychologically stable and the tremor in his arm had improved significantly, so that it was barely noticeable.
