This information is not surprising when you realize that the body is connected to all its parts - physically, mentally, emotionally.  Getting healthier overall will help with many conditions.  Some are still genetic and may need Rx, but giving natural options a shot will more than likely work.  Check out this blog for some easy tips to incorporate healthier habits into your busy life:

A person with multiple health problems is really difficult to treat especially if depression comes in. Patients should seek medical help when their situation is not getting any better. Immediate help should be provided. Doctors should make sure to provide/prescribe safe treatments and medications. Refer to for related information on depression treatments.

I've been on Effexor from only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
