Depression is often considered an imbalance in brain physiology and function leading to extended feelings of sadness, impending doom, low motivation, and or hopelessness. Anti-depressants are the most commonly prescribed medication for this condition. However, other medications that control neurotransmitters may also be applicable. Talk therapy is also often recommended.
Oriental Medical Perspective
Depression is almost always associated with some form of Liver imbalance. Other factors can also be related such as insufficiency of Fire and Wood Qi. A deficiency in Fire Qi translates into fewer experiences of happiness and joy. And insufficient Wood Qi corresponds with the inability to grow, connect, and transform. Oftentimes, people with an Earth Qi Constitution suffer from depression because of over-control over Water Qi. This often leads to dispersion of Water Qi into the circulating Ying which can cause feelings at the “Heart Orifice” of darkness and doom. Constitutional factors often start in childhood and have the capacity to continue throughout one’s entire life if left unchecked.
