In 2011, the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare positioned mental illness as the "five major diseases" in line with the "four major diseases" of cancer, stroke, heart disease, and diabetes, and strengthened measures from the viewpoint of prevention. The number of people with stress-related mental illness is increasing rapidly.
Every one can feel depressed or depressed because of various events in their lives. However, such a depressed or depressed feeling naturally recovers by a change of mood or time passing, even if the cause is not solved or solved.
However, even if the cause is solved, the mood does not recover, and it becomes difficult to live a normal life by a long period of time, and it is depression that such a state becomes such a state even if there is no cause to think.
Depression includes symptoms called "depressive moods" such as depression and depressing moods, as well as mental symptoms (mental symptoms) characteristic of depression, such as inability to get motivated and inconceivable. In addition, many people see the symptoms of the body (physical symptoms) such as not being able to sleep and being tired easily.
Depression is a disease that has not been clearly elucidated and is still unknown, but it is thought that the nature of the person's original "easily prone to depression" and "stress caused by environmental factors" are related. In addition, it has been found that abnormalities in the function of the brain, such as the decrease in the amount of substances that transmit information on the nerves of the brain.
Treatment in modern medicine is mainly drug therapy. The following three types of medicineares are used.
1. Antidepressants: drugs that enhance serotonin and noradrenaline activity.
2. Anti-anxiety drugs ... relieve anxiety and tension.
3. Sleeping pills, it encourages sleep.
The problem is the medication to be prescribed. Although there is no medicine with zero side effects, the side effects are so large that not only often interfere with life, but there are also many cases where it is not possible to return to society because it is put on drugs. Even if you don't know the cause, the drug is prescribed just to cheat the symptoms on the surface. Drugs are prescribed to help you not feel the normal reaction of the brain.
In recent years, modern medicine has shown that there is a "brain intestinal relationship" at the root of mental illness. This means that similar nerve cells are distributed in the brain and intestines, which are connected by autonomic nervous system, and thinking in the head is reflected in the intestine, and changes in the intestine are projected onto the head. For example, when stress is done, peristaltic movements of the intestines may be disturbed, and the pleasant eating and stool may gradually become depressed or sick due to the collapse of good food and stool. On the other hand, in order to relieve stress, overeating can also cause actions that try to improve peristalsis of the intestines.
In Oriental medicine, it is said that the mind and body are one-way, and i have originally thought that the mind (spirit) and the body are related to each other rather than separately. The idea is that mental disorders are closely related to the decline in human sensory function and, in a broad sense, the decline of physical function. In the same way, mental disorders are important to improve mental symptoms by improving the intestinal environment rather than making them act directly on the brain.
Depression is not a disease. It is a normal reaction of the animal. Depression is not only for humans, but also in animals. We know that there are also fish. If you put a natural enemy in a fish tank, you will run around at first. Some of them become prey in front of them. Fish also feel stress. Some of them will not run away even if a natural enemy approaches. This is the symptom of depression. When an animal is exposed to stress, some of them fall into symptoms like depression. I'm not sick. Normal reaction. So never go to the hospital. Even if you have symptoms, it is better than not being human due to the side effects of the drug. Take a good rest and get in shape. I repeat. Depression is not a disease. I'm just a little less stressed. Please continue to receive the treatment of traditional Thai medicine.
