A few decades ago, the depression is not even considered a serious disease, and, meanwhile, the first mention of the symptoms of a depressive state found even among the ancient Egyptians.At the same time it is a psychological disorder is recognized as one of the most widespread in the world, because he was subject to more than half the world's population.
What is depression?
It is believed that the main cause of depression is life's troubles, but it is not.Depression can cause a lot of reasons - lack of certain chemicals in the body, alcohol abuse, a certain way of life and even genetic predisposition.
The researchers found that 21% of the population has in the gene pool of a tendency to a depressive state, which can be traced for several generations of the same family.Also found that 18% have a strong immunity to the disease and thus in any circumstances to easily overcome all difficulties.But half the population are of mixed genotype and, therefore, more or less prone to depression.

Symptoms of depression are very diverse and can be divided into psychological and physical.
