Depression consumes a person. It holds its root inside a person’s head so tightly that at one point in time, it becomes impossible for the person to break out of it. The thing with depression is that you can live with it your whole life and not be bothered enough to heal it. It’s a state of mind, a manner of living.
Depression is the most common disease between the age group of 16-35. People in this age group are constantly in a hustle, struggling with their lives, facing emotional exertion and are striving hard for triumph. There aren’t any fixed causes for depression. Although the factors that make it more likely for you to become depressed, form a long list: genetic predisposition, death or loss of loved one, major life events (even happy ones, like a graduation), other mental illnesses, substance abuse, childhood trauma, certain medications, serious illness, and personal problems such as financial troubles or the loss of a job. What all of these things have in common is that they disrupt the normal balancing mechanisms of mind and body.
There is no treatment for depression that ensures the patient that he will be entirely healed of it or that it will never return. Psychological therapy helps you to a certain point of time, it stops the feeling of depression for a while; but never completely heals it. The battle against depression can be won and there is one approach that guarantees the definitive heal- The Holistic Approach.
HOLISTIC HEALING is that method of treatment which would liberate us from depression and eventually make us complete again because the ultimate goal of holistic healing is wholeness; wholeness of the mind and the soul. Holistic healing technique finds the root cause of depression, takes the afflicted person on a journey of self-discovery, destroys the cause and then makes the person whole again. The central idea of holistic healing is that depression starts from just a thought and grows into something so enormous that it changes the person from inside out. Having said that, the holistic approach doesn’t just focus on eliminating the disease, but the main focus lies on destroying the elements in the human mind that create the disease in the first place.
Their most common argument against holistic treatment for depression or any other disorder is that there is not enough research or hard evidence to demonstrate their efficacy. The argument really doesn’t have any basis because holistic approach started in the medieval times to heal soldiers and warriors. It has its roots in the ancient history of the world. Its focus is divided on not just curing the disease but making sure it never comes back again. Holistic healing therapy relies on Systems Theory– which recognizes that anything done to one “part” of us, affects all other parts of us. Any treatment that is in harmony with life and aims on the individual as a whole will benefit the individual on multiple levels- even far beyond what the target symptoms may be. By utilizing a holistic treatment for depression, it is likely that you will also experience healing in other areas as well.
So to conclude, The Battle of Depression might leave holes in you, might change you far beyond you’d imagine; but curing it with the holistic approach will just benefit you in the long run. It will not just heal the depression you acquire but the very whole of you.
