Certainly, there are lots of things to be ‘depressed’ about, these days: Crime, inequality, poverty, urban congestion, pollution, global warming, political dysfunction, international conflicts . . . At best, that’s just the beginning of a dreary too-long list.
The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) has studied the phenomenon of Depression among Canadians. Because Canada and the United States are rather similar sociologically, it seems reasonable to take CMHA’s conclusions about Canadians, and to in effect multiply them by nine — the approximate population ratio of the two countries, 320 million folks in the United States as compared with 36 million in Canada.
Clinical Depression is severe despair that extends over a period of time. It is quite different from the ‘blue’ feelings that most people have temporarily, often because at the moment something in their lives is not going well for them. All aspects of the lives of people undergoing clinical Depression may be affected, including their emotions, their physical health, and their relationships with other folks around them, and their working lives. Their whole lives feel like one big long dark tunnel, with no light visible at any end. About 8% of people undergo at least one major episode of Depression during their lives.
Clinically depressed people need to be under the care of competent medical practitioners. Depression arises from the interaction of genetic, biological, personality, and environmental factors. These days, it can be effectively treated.
Depression can strike people of any age. Children may be subject to Depression and may have to carry the extra burden that the adults around them can’t see their discouraging situations through their child's eyes, nor even grasp how serious their problems seem to them. Growing up can be very hard for some children. It’s important that adults don’t disparage the seriousness of children’s problems, thereby making the depressed children feel that they must face what can seem to them like overwhelming life issues all by themselves, without significant adult support.
Unlike normal temporary, transient mood changes, clinical Depression can seriously interfere with people’s ability to satisfactorily handle their daily lives. Like other bad mental-health conditions, for instance, manic-depressive or ‘bipolar’ disorder, Depression can throw off coping with daily living for those afflicted, making them feel less energetic and creative and sadder and ‘down.’ Their working lives may be damaged; and work is very important to most of us, both for the necessary money that it brings in and for the psychological boost that comes from feeling useful to other people.
One special kind of Depression, affecting women, is Postpartum Depression following the delivery of a new baby. Again, this condition doesn’t bother all women; typically, after giving birth women may for a couple of weeks experience crying spells, anxiety, mood swings, and insomnia, and then get better spontaneously on their own. But some percentage of women can undergo clinical Depression, lasting three months or more, but frequently also getting better on their own. Still, as is true for folks experiencing other types of Depression, it’s best if they’re under the care of a competent medical practitioner.
Now, there’s CLE Holistic Health Mood Effex, offered in the form of 500-milligram vegetarian capsules, aimed at helping you Cheer Up. This product is formulated from the extracts of seven herbs that have Indian Ayurveda, Chinese, and European natural-medicine healers used all for thousands of years to treat despondency:
- Punctureweed (Tribulus Terrestris)
- Nard (a variety of Spikenard) (Nardostachys Chinensis Batal)
- Dong Quai Root (aka Female Ginseng) (Angelica Sinensis)
- Purple Nutsedge Root (Cyperus rotundus)
- Persian Silk Tree Durazz Flower (Albizia julibrissin)
- Ba Ji Tian Root (aka Indian Mulberry) (Morinda Officinalis)
- St. John’s Wort (Hypericum perforatum)
CLE Mood Effex is not known to interact with most prescription medicines — so you can generally try it regardless of other medications that you may already be taking. Like other CLE products, Mood Effex is blended from herbs raised organically by CLE on its own farmland, and harvested, processed, and packaged entirely by CLE employees, to assure its consistent quality, purity, and uniformity.
But, as has already been stated above, if you are depressed you do need to be under the purview of a competent medical professional. And. if you are female and pregnant, you should wait until your baby has been delivered before you start taking Mood Effex.
Anyway, Cheer Up! And maybe you can try CLE Holistic Health Mood Effex capsules to help with that.
