Depression überwinden: Wie Sie Schritt für Schritt Ihre Depression verstehen und den Weg zurück zum Glück finden inkl. Praxisteil (German Edition)

Depression überwinden

Wie Sie Schritt für Schritt Ihre Depression verstehen und den Weg zurück zum Glück finden

inklusive Praxisteil

Viele Krankheiten sind augenfällig und werden von den meisten Menschen als eine gravierende gesundheitliche Beeinträchtigung anerkannt. Doch es gibt Krankheiten, die einen scheinbar harmlosen Verlauf haben und von Menschen unterschätzt werden. So ist es auch bei Depressionen oft der Fall: Stimmungsschwankungen, chronische Müdigkeit, Verlust der Konzentrationsfähigkeit sowie verminderte Belastbarkeit und noch viele weitere Symptome weisen auf Depressionen hin. Die meisten Menschen können sie nicht als solche erkennen, denn jeder Mensch meint seine Tiefpunkte im Leben zu haben und das Interesse an eigentlich interessanten Tätigkeiten zu verlieren.

In diesem Buch finden Sie einfach strukturierte und praxisorientierte Schritte, die Ihnen dabei helfen, aus dem Tief herauszukommen und das nicht nur einmalig, sondern dauerhaft und vor allen Dingen selbstständig. Es ist durchaus nicht leicht, sich selbst aus einem depressiven Zustand zu befördern, aber es ist zugleich nicht unmöglich und durchaus hilfreich, weil man dadurch die Möglichkeit hat, die Verantwortung für sich selbst zu übernehmen.
Der Heilungserfolg kann durch unterschiedliche Faktoren beeinflusst, sprich verlangsamt oder beschleunigt, werden. Eigenmotivation und den Wunsch zu entwickeln, sein Leben selbst in die Hand zu nehmen, ist immer förderlich, Stress und Angst hingegen sind kontraproduktiv und sogar oftmals die Auslöser für Depressionen. Im weiteren Verlauf des Buches wird genauer erörtert, welche Faktoren man meiden und welche begünstigen sollte. Im Prinzip kann man das Ganze aber einfach halten: man muss merken, was Einem gut tut und was einem schadet und somit findet man heraus, wie man Depressionen heilen kann. â??Heilen” bedeutet in diesem Kontext, dem Leben einen Sinn geben, die Lebenslust wiederbringen und das Interesse für seine Umwelt und für sich selbst zu entwickeln. Depressionen sind darüber hinaus eine sehr individuelle Krankheit; es gibt so viele Gründe für Depressionen wie es Menschen gibt, daher gibt es nicht das eine Wunderheilmittel.

Dieses Buch ist so viel mehr als nur ein Ratgeber. In diesem Buch stecken viele Jahre der Recherche und eigenen Erfahrung:

  • Was ist überhaupt Depression? Welche Arten der Depression gibt es? Was sind wohlmöglich Folgen für mich?
  • Der groÃ?e Selbstanalyse Teil
  • Welche Verfahren und Methoden gibt es, die wissenschaftlich und durch Erfahrung einzelner Individuen belegt sind?
  • Wie finde ich meinen Weg zurück zum Glück?
  • All diese Fragen und viele weitere Aspekte werden in dem Buch näher beleuchtet. Zögern Sie nicht! Finden Sie den Weg raus aus der Depression und wieder zurück zum Glück!

    Sonic Skills: Listening for Knowledge in Science, Medicine and Engineering (1920s-Present)

    by Karin Bijsterveld

    It is common for us today to associate the practice of science primarily with the act of seeingâ??with staring at computer screens, analyzing graphs, and presenting images. We may notice that physicians use stethoscopes to listen for disease, that biologists tune into sound recordings to understand birds, or that engineers have created Geiger tellers warning us for radiation through sound. But in the sciences overall, we think, seeing is believing. This open access book explains why, indeed, listening for knowledge plays an ambiguous, if fascinating, role in the sciences. For what purposes have scientists, engineers and physicians listened to the objects of their interest? How did they listen exactly? And why has listening often been contested as a legitimate form of access to scientific knowledge? This concise monograph combines historical and ethnographic evidence about the practices of listening on shop floors, in laboratories, field stations, hospitals, and conference halls, between the 1920s and today. It shows how scientists have used sonic skillsâ??skills required for making, recording, storing, retrieving, and listening to soundâ??in ensembles: sets of instruments and techniques for particular situations of knowledge making. Yet rather than pleading for the emancipation of hearing at the expense of seeing, this essay investigates when, how, and under which conditions the ear has contributed to science dynamics, either in tandem with or without the eye.

    A Patient’s Guide to Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

    by D.A. Simon

    Thoracic outlet syndrome occurs when some structureâ??such as a muscle, an extra rib, or a malformationâ??compresses the nerves and/or veins and arteries in the lower neck and, sometimes, the upper chest. Nerve compression can cause pain, numbness and weakness in the neck, chest, upper back, shoulder, arm, and hand. Compression of the artery or vein can cause blood clots, arm swelling, and other symptoms. The purpose of this book is to assist patients in understanding how to determine whether they have thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS), to find a physician and therapist skilled in evaluating and treating TOS, and, ultimately, to ensure that they receive the most effective treatment for their TOS.

    â??
    This book should provide you with quick, accessible information that will enable you to make more educated choices about your own diagnosis and treatment plan, including tools that will allow you to ask your medical provider probing questions and, I hope, gain a better outcome from your treatment. A TOS patient whose doctor has recommended surgery, for example, should be able to ask relevant questions about surgical technique, the risks, and experience of the surgeon. And the TOS patient should be able to use the answers to make an educated decision about whether to pursue surgery with that particular surgeon, or at all. The same should be true for treatments such as physical therapy or massage, as well as other treatments that are not often mentioned, considered, or known by doctors.

    TOS patients at any stage of the condition should be able to use this book. I sincerely hope that this book is helpful to you and, in whatever way possible, improves your health.
