Depression Cases Increase In Winter: After Diwali, the pink winter season will start. As the weather cools, so will the cases of depression. You will be surprised to know but it is true that the cases of suicide increase in large numbers during the winter season. The reason for this is depression.
We are talking here that why depression increases in winter and by adopting which home remedies you can control this problem.
Why do depression patients increase in winter?
When we asked Dr Rajesh Kumar, Senior Psychiatrist of Max Hospital, the reason for the increase in the number of patients of depression during the winter season, he gave two main reasons for this. He says, ‘The reason for increasing depression in winter is directly related to the weather. The first reason for increasing depression is that the timing of sunlight decreases in these days, due to which the secretion of serotonin hormone in the brain is affected. It is a mood lightening hormone, also known as happy hormone. It also acts as a neurotransmitter for the brain and directly affects mood, with low levels having a negative effect on mental health and increasing symptoms of depression. It is also called seasonal affective disorder. ,
The second reason is that cold is like a stress for our body. The body tries to keep itself warm to reduce the effect of cold. For this, the body has to burn a large amount of carbohydrates and when the body burns a large amount of carbohydrates, the excretion of cortisol increases. Cartisol is a negative hormone, which is responsible for depression. Due to this, when the amount of cortisol starts increasing inside the body in winter, then a large number of people start feeling sad and depressed.
