This study is especially thought-provoking, given that more and more people are taking medications with depression or suicidal thoughts as possible side effects. The CDC just released updated data showing a troubling recent rise in suicide rates, and that 54% of those who die from suicide do not have a known mental health disorder, so this is an important public health issue. That said, it is important to note: in this study, people who used these medications were more likely to be widowed and have chronic health problems, both of which are associated with a higher risk of depression. And many (but not all) of these medica...

Most people know the telltale signs of depression: a deep, sinking sadness, loss of hope, a bleak outlook on life, and weight and appetite changes. As psychologist Deborah Serani, Psy.D, said, most people also picture a slow-moving individual with sloped shoulders who’s unable to get out of bed. While for some people the above is absolutely true, for others, different signs are more prominent and indicative of depression—signs that might surprise you. Below are six symptoms to watch out for. You have a super short fuse. Irritability is a common sign of depression in men, but it also shows up in women. For examp...

Chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU) is the most common subtype of urticaria, and is characterized by recurrent episodes of spontaneous wheals and/or angioedema with unknown triggers, lasting for more than six weeks.1 CSU generally affects 0.5 –1.0% of people 20–40 years of age, with a disease duration of 1–5 years.2 Patients with CSU often experience sleep deprivation and psychiatric comorbidities like anxiety and depression, which compromise the health-related and overall quality of life of the affected individuals.

Have you ever heard of the term biofeedback, or read it somewhere and wondered what it actually was? Biofeedback is a technique that involves using visual or auditory feedback to gain control over our involuntary bodily functions, or functions we don’t even think about consciously on a daily basis. This may include gaining voluntary control over such things as heart rate, muscle tension, blood flow, pain perception and blood pressure. The ultimate goal is to help you improve your well-being and quality of life. During a biofeedback session, electrodes are attached to your skin, and therefore they are non-invasive. Fi...
