Depression is a growing epidemic in our society. It makes a person depart from normal functioning, making it harder for him to work, sleep, eat or enjoy activities. Then there is a type of depression called dysthymia where the mood remains low, but the effects are less severe. The mood-altering bipolar disorder is the worst of them all.
Symptoms: The typical symptoms of depression are fatigue, loss of energy, persistent sadness, an empty mood, irritable behaviour, disrupted sleep patterns where a person either sleeps too much or too little, physical issues like chronic pain and digestive issues. When a person is going through depression, he also faces problems like reduced appetite, weight loss or gain, loss of interest in activities including pleasure and even sex. They find it hard to concentrate and remember. They face a sense of guilt, hopelessness and worthlessness. It turns a person into a lifeless shadow of a man.
To make things worse, sometimes it goes undiagnosed. Family and friends don’t know and can’t help.
Depression Affecting Different Age Groups
Statistics are even scarier. 8% of youth between the age of 12-17 experience depression. 11% adolescents have had a depression disorder by the age of 18. Suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death in teenagers. Older children are more likely to experience depression.
On the other end, over 58% of the people over 65 believe depression is normal at their age. The cost of depression is estimated to be about $50 billion each year in the US alone. The number of man-hours lost due to depression is mind-boggling.
Just Advice Isn’t Enough
These figures conclude that depression is not a myth. It is a real problem. The solution has to be more than just advice for them to think positively again. It doesn’t work on depressed people because advising a person to think positive when they are depressed is like telling them to switch on the light during a power-cut. It doesn’t work.
During depression, the electromagnetic field around their body is broken. They are unable to express their emotions, and their energy is not interacting with the energy of others. There is no interaction. They feel captivated in an unknown sphere, waiting for someone to pull them out of their bubble.
Nitaai Breathing is an effective antidepressant.
Continually exhaling the sound of Nitaai provides you with a fresh flow of energy. The negative feelings are pushed out of the body, and new inspiration begins to flow. The sound of Nitaai consists of three things – Ni, Taa, and I. Resonating with the sound Nitaai makes you more mindful, peaceful and calm. It helps you feel better naturally.
For someone who is depressed and you would like to help, bring them a recorded sound version of the Nitaai sound and let them listen to it. It doesn’t have to be loud. Just the constant flow of vibrational sound energy will be an excellent way to get them out of their compulsive behaviour and make them happy and cheerful.
The technique of Nitaai Breathing is entirely free and secular. It belongs to anyone who wants to become a better version of himself. All they are required to do each day is take a deep breath and continuously exhale “Nitaaaai”. It’s that simple.
