What is Stress?
The term stress has been defined as the state in which there is a demand on physical or mental energy and this is actually a condition or circumstance that disturbs the normal physical and mental health of an individual. The perturbation of the body's homeostasis can be defined as stress and the demand occurs on the mind and the body when it tries to cope with incessant changes in life. Basically stress can affect both the mind and the body, unlike depression, which only affects the mind. The problem of stress is relative in nature and in extreme stress conditions this can have a negative impact on life. In many cases stress can have a positive impact as it motivates the body and the mind to function faster and smoothly.

There are different causes of stress and these include Biological factors, Psychological factors and even Social factors. The biological causes of stress include exertion on the nerve impulses in our brain and nerves along with genetic factors. This also includes physical and mental features along with the genes in the cells and hormonal imbalances in the body, which are leading to stress of various kinds, especially in women. Often menopause and the menstrual cycles have been associated with stress.

Most of the people suffering from these symptoms feel helpless and thoughts of suicide are also caused due to stress and this is also associated with depression. The people suffering from stress feel low or may become very aggressive even when they are given a lot of advice by friends and relatives Feelings of lethargy, low energy and drastic mood swings indicate that the person may be suffering from stress.

Treatments for Stress:
Natural: The treatments for stress include both psychological and physical factors and hence medicines and therapy. It should be remembered that along with treatments the body and the mind also need to relax and unwind and hence in most cases doctors advise the patients to take a break from their regular routines and take a vacation. Anti depressants, which include adequate dosage, can be given to the patients who suffer from stress and depression.
