Depression can come in different forms, and most of the time, it is a normal reaction to a life occurrence. When there is a death in the family or some other type of loss, depression will set in and gradually dissipate with the passage of time. But there is another type of depression that can come into a person’s life, and this is not the normal reactive depression that is to be expected when a loss has occurred. Clinical depression is a prolonged feeling of sadness and hopelessness that a person can experience that does not come about as a result of loss. It happens to women more often than men, and it is more severe than normal reactive depression. When clinical depression occurs, there is a greater chance that it will occur again at a future time.
When a person is going through a clinical depression, feelings of hopelessness and sadness will be experienced that hang on and are not quickly resolved. The depressed person will get little or no joy out of things that were once enjoyable, and everything becomes an effort, even getting out of bed in the morning. Depression will sap energy and make it very difficult for the depressed individual to concentrate and function normally during the day. Physical symptoms, such as fatigue, dizziness, headaches, constipation and muscle pain may also be felt by a person who is going through clinical depression. Some individuals will want to sleep all of the time, others will not be able to sleep. Eating habits will also be affected, where some may eat too much and others will not have an appetite at all. Clinical depression can have a major impact on a person’s life to the point where normal functioning is not possible. When depression is severe enough, the person may even consider suicide.
A depressed person needs help, but when current medication and treatments are not working, depression inpatient therapy on a holistic level may be just what is needed. With depression inpatient treatment, the client will receive psychotherapy on an individual basis and also through group therapy. Yoga and meditation will be used to help with the mind/body connection, and holistic professionals will work out specific programs to benefit the client and meet necessary requirements. Since therapy is conducted on an inpatient level, the client will be residing at a spacious and restful home in a lovely neighborhood within walking distance from the therapy clinic and offices. This type of arrangement will provide a nurturing and healing environment for the client, enabling progress to be made with holistic techniques without the distressing factors of the outside world intruding on recovery. Highly trained holistic specialists will be working with the client to ensure that a satisfactory outcome will be attained.
