More than 6% of the U.S. population is affected with majordepression, and an additional 18% of the adult U.S. population has some kind of anxiety disorder.
As a culture, we tend to address these health issues through pharma drugs and therapy, as if the problem lies within the patient. However, perhaps we should consider that it is the environment’s sickness which causes depression within an individual. Maybe that’s why it’s such a hard illness to resolve.
What if depression is a reaction, and not the problem?
Perhaps we are trying to fix the wrong patient. All that can be done for a depressed person is to alleviate their symptoms and change their environment. It is the environment that must be healed.
