Depression is a Disease of Civilisation
The relationship between stress and depression

Depression has become a global epidemic. It robs people of sleep, energy, focus, memory, sex drive and their basic ability to experience the pleasures of life. It can destroy people’s desire to love, work, play and even their will to live. If left unchecked it can cause permanent brain damage. But, this foe can be defeated. Author of The Depression Cure, Stephen Ilardi has conducted 20 years of research, and he says depression is not a natural disease.

It is not an inevitable part of being human. Ilardi argues, like many diseases, depression is a disease of civilisation. It’s a disease caused by a high-stress, industrialized, modern lifestyle that is incompatible with our genetic evolution. Learn how depression is the result of a prolonged stress-response, and how we can heal it.
