Depression is a mental illness that negatively affects mood. Older people and people between the ages of 30 and 40 are often depressed. It manifests itself as deep depression, a feeling of emptiness, meaninglessness, in extreme cases and a desire for death and suicidal thoughts, and through resignation. The causes are disappointment, sadness, anger, despair, loneliness and above all fear, especially the elderly are afraid that they will be abandoned, less loved or that they will die alone. Sensitivity to time and hypochondria affect mental emptiness.

Many depressed people, especially women, have a lack of self-confidence. Added to this is the fear of failure, a sense of inferiority and a bad conscience. Recent research has shown that depression causes hormonal and metabolic disorders as well as the impact of various radiations. Depressed people keep everything to themselves and suppress their negative energy instead of giving in to the body's normal reaction. Concomitant diseases of depression are indigestion, diarrhea or constipation, shortness of breath, rapid heartbeat and circulatory disorders.
