Dr. Marie-Annette Brown, professor and researcher at the University of Washington, has developed an all-natural therapy for women with the "Body Blues."
The Body Blues is a popular term for a type of mild depression that is very common in women. The Body Blues is not a severe mood disorder. Women who have this condition can feel happy when something good happens to them. They may enjoy much of what they do and be quite effective at work and at home. Surprisingly, they may not even feel sad or blue.
Nonetheless, their bodies are sending out clear signals of distress. Too much of the time, they feel tired, tense, or irritable. They know they should exercise more, but they find it hard to summon the energy and motivation. Many women with the Body Blues eat too much—especially in the second half of the day. Due to their low energy and food cravings, they may be significantly overweight, which can compromise their health, detract from their appearance, and undermine their self-esteem.
When they stop and think about it, it seems as though their bodies were more depressed than their minds.
Sound familiar? The most common symptoms of the Body Blues are listed below.
Most people have some of these symptoms some of the time. But a woman with the Body Blues has three or more of them to the point that they detract from her quality of life. To see if you have the Body Blues, take our on-line quiz.
