Let’s put an end to your health anxiety together starting today:
My latest book: The essential guide to health anxiety is now available on Amazon:
Health anxiety sufferers have a close relationship with worry, often making it like a best friend. This best friend comes with the illusion of safety, possibly productivity, and a helpful problem solver when in reality it’s an energy and time waster.
The moment a health anxiety sufferer opens up to the true vision of what worry is and what it’s doing to them they can begin to de-value worry. Placing less value on the habit of over worrying will in time help to create trust and faith in allowing things to be as they are.

Depression – Causes, Symptoms and Treatment
Depression is a mental health condition that can affect people of all ages, genders and ethnicities. It can be either mild or severe. It can also be caused by illness, stress or other factors. It is a common disorder that can lead to serious consequences if left untreated.
It is a disorder that can be treated, but many people with depression do not seek treatment. They may feel like they have no control over their life and do not want to change things. It can be hard to talk about depression, but if you are struggling with it, it is important that you do not feel alone and that you speak to someone.
A person can develop depression without a clear reason, but some causes are thought to be related to genetics and brain chemistry. There is evidence that certain chemicals in the brain, such as serotonin and dopamine, are low when you are depressed. The chemicals help send messages between nerve cells and can regulate mood and behavior.
If you have depression, it may affect your relationships with others and make it difficult to function normally. It may also cause you to lose interest in the things you used to enjoy.
Depression can be caused by a variety of things, including stress, trauma, grief, loss of a loved one and physical illnesses or injuries. It can also be a side effect of medications that are used to treat other medical conditions.
The exact causes of depression are unknown, but scientists have found links to brain chemistry, hormones and personality. Depression can also be associated with changes in certain areas of the brain, such as the parts that are responsible for thinking and memory.
Symptoms of depression vary from person to person and can last for weeks, months or years. The symptoms can be mild or severe and include feelings of sadness, loss of interest in life, lack of sleep, appetite changes and a sense of hopelessness.
You can also experience physical signs of depression, such as changes in your body, such as weight loss or gain, sleep problems and pain. These symptoms are usually worse during the day and can be very disruptive to your daily activities.
Treatment for depression includes talking to a doctor or mental health professional, and sometimes medication. Medication can reduce symptoms, such as mood and concentration, and it can also reduce the amount of time you are feeling depressed.
Your doctor can prescribe several different types of medication, such as antidepressants and psychiatric drugs. It can take some trial and error to find the best medication for you, but with perseverance you should be able to find an antidepressant that works well for you.
Psychotherapy is a popular treatment option for depression, and it can help you learn how to cope with your feelings better. It can be a combination of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), talk therapy or other methods that focus on your beliefs, behaviors and thoughts.
