range of causes.
The most obvious of these causes is emotional problems and
These emotional problems and the negative beliefs need to be tackled
through counselling, and many people turn to hypnotherapy to
find a solution as well.
But often, theres more to depression than just going
through a tough time.
We all know people who have gone through experiences that
would have plunged other folk into depression or some other
problem. But these people just seem to bounce back.
It could be that these people have more hope and optimism and a
series of positive beliefs that help them cope with tough times. Or it
could be another factor.
When considering the causes of depression, the mind/body link
should never be ignored.
Scientists everywhere have accepted the idea of SAD
(seasonal affective disorder), where people who dont get
enough sunlight have a greater tendency to depression.
In Scandinavian countries in particular, with their long, dark winters, more cases of clinical
depression crop up in winter, only to be alleviated when the sun returns in spring and summer.

symptoms of depression and make you feel better.
We all know that there are certain foods that make you feel better
emotionally everyone has comfort foods.
The downside of traditional comfort foods is that they are
often high in empty calories and simple starches and can leave us with a weight loss problem,
especially if people turn to these foods as a crutch when feeling

associated with these foods.
If this rings a bell with you, then you might like to talk to your
counsellor or hypnotherapist as part of a hypnosis session before
it gets out of control.
But there are things that you can eat that really can make you feel better because of the way that
they interact with your hormones and affect the chemicals in your
brain that affect moods.
And the good news is that many of them are healthy for your body
as well as for your brain.
