Records show that people experiencing depression often suffer from cancer, and cardiovascular disease; okay to prove to everyone that depression is not just a mental illness, but affects the whole body i.e. the body’s ability to detoxify itself.
A new study published in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry talks about the urgent need to declassify depression as only a mental disorder, but as a disease of the body; this will further enable the easy combating of the disorder and those linked to it.
From analysis gathered from 29 previous studies; reports show how depression affected 3,961 people in different ways.
Researchers traced depression to oxidative stress in the body: an imbalance which affects the body’s ability to get rid of toxic substances; of which its normal treatment forces the body to recover rapidly.
While a comprehensive treatment makes the body of the formerly depressed ones completely indistinguishable from healthy people.
