    For most people, learning how to overcome depression and anxiety is a simple process.

    And since antidepressants are the most prescribed drug in the U.S., knowing how to overcome depression naturally is clearly vital.

    Anxiety and depression affect how we see the world around us. And although an occasional downer is only human, a consistent down-in-the-dumps view robs you of your ability to enjoy life.

    Depression is a major cause of failed relationships, finances and health.

    So instead of steadily singing-the-blues, it's time to learn how to overcome depression and direct your feet to the sunny side of the street.

    7 Simple Steps for Overcoming Depression Naturally

    Over 120 million people worldwide suffer from debilitating depression. And although drugs and therapy are possible solutions, in most cases, learning how to overcome depression naturally is even more effective.

    Here are the 7 most powerful ways of overcoming depression naturally:

    1. Get out into the light of day. It's natural to spend time outside. But often our lifestyle doesn't support outdoor activity. About 20 minutes of daylight, without sunglasses, can make all the difference.

    2. Eat a super wholesome diet. Studies show depressed people eat more sweets and drink more coffee and alcohol than those who seldom experience depression. So follow these healthy eating guidelines:
    • Increase whole grains, fruits, vegetables, fish and poultry.
    • Eliminate high glycemic index foods, coffee and alcohol.
    3. Socialize with positive people. Actually, just having a friendly chat with a check out counter clerk can help. But best of all is to have a community of supportive extended family to share the joys of life with.

    4. Be active and exercise daily. A half-hour of regular physical activityhelps you overcome depression and anxiety and sleep better.

    5. Include good-mood nutrients. Even with a great diet you can't get all the nutrients you need to balance hormones and overcome depression. So include a good multiple with vitamin D and these extra supplements:
    • Omega 3 fish oil with EPA and DHA has been shown to improve mood, serotonin levels, hormone balance and even clinical depression. So eat more fish and take 1000 mg of quality omega 3 fish oil a day.

    • Vitamin B complex is known to be essential to emotional health. But B vitamins are easily destroyed by alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, stress, refined foods and high glycemic sugars. So you need extra.

    • C with bioflavonoids has been found to be low in 30% of depressed patients. And stress, smoking, aspirin, birth control pills and many other drugs and medications increase your need for vitamin C.

    • Multi-Mineral complex, especially calcium, magnesium and zinc, help stabilize moods. And lack of sufficient minerals can cause nervousness, apprehension, mood swings, irritability and depression.

    6. Relax and get enough sleep. As a result of caffeine intake and other stimulants, most people don't get enough rest. In order to overcome depression, it's important to learn how to get a good nights sleep.

    7. Learn to focus on the positive. It takes work and persistence to learn how to focus on the positive aspects of your life with an attitude of gratitude. But it's a habit that can change your life for better forever.

    Now that you know how to overcome depression naturally, put these seven steps to work for overcoming depression and anxiety in your life.

    Depression can triple risk of developing Parkinson's disease, scientists say


    • Scientists in Taiwan studied records 23,000 people over 10 years
    • Those with depression 3.24 times more likely to be develop Parkinson's
    • Age and hard-to-treat Parkinson's risk factors, scientists said



    Depression can triple the risk of developing Parkinson's disease, according to researchers.
    Scientists in Taiwan studied the medical records of 4,634 people with depression and 18,544 depression-free individuals for 10 years.
    During the follow-up, 1.42 per cent of depression sufferers were diagnosed with Parkinson's compared with 0.52 per cent of non-depressed participants.

    Scientists in Taiwan found people with depression were 3.24 times more likely to develop Parkinson's

    People with depression were 3.24 times more likely to develop the disease than those without the mental health problem, said the researchers writing online in the journal Neurology.




    However, scientists do not know whether depression is an early symptom of the neurodegenerative disease or a cause.
    Depression has proven links to range of illnesses including cancer and stroke.

    Authors of the study in Taiwan said the risks of being diagnosed with Parkinson's increased with age and having depression that did not respond to treatment.

    Age and people with hard-to-treat depression are significant risk factors, according to the research

    According to Parkinson's UK, one in 500 people in the UK have the disease - a progressive neurological condition.
    Mental health charities say depression affects one in five older people and about five million people in the country are living with the illness.

    Lead author Dr Albert Yang, from Taipei Veterans General Hospital, said: 'Our study suggests that depression may also be an independent risk factor for Parkinson's disease.
    'Many questions remain, including whether depression is an early symptom of Parkinson's disease rather than an independent risk factor for the disease.
    'Our study also found that depression and older age, and having difficult-to-treat depression, were significant risk factors as well.'
    Parkinson's UK said more research was needed into the link.
    Dr Katie Le Blond, research development manager at the charity, told The Telegraph newspaper: 'This study found that people with depression were more likely to develop Parkinson's than those without depression.

    'But even among those with depression, the number of people who went on to develop Parkinson's was still only a fraction of those who took part. So there is by no means a direct link.' Source.

    Lowest point in an Economic cycle characterized by;
    • Reduced purchasing power
    • Mass Unemployment
    • Excess supply vs demand
    • Falling of prices or tending to raise slower than usual-Deflation
    • Falling wages or wages tending to raise slower than usual
    • General lack of confidence in the future

    NB: Also known as a slump,depression causes a drop in all economic activities.A good example is the Great Depression (1930-1940) which had world impact.
