Doctors advise not to sleep, to get rid of depression

Some studies, during which they tried to find a cure for depression, showed that 6 out of 10 patients who slept less felt relieved, which was comparable to taking antidepressants for 6-8 weeks.

Sleep deprivation, as doctors believe, increases the intensity of messages sent to the brain that activate the hormone serotonin, the one that gives people happiness. However, it is early to rejoice at this discovery, because after a person has a good sleep, everything returns.

Therefore, doctors from the Medical University of South Carolina, along with the Rhode Island Hospital (the Medical University of South Carolina and the Rhode Island Hospital), decided to look for a more lasting method of symptom relief. So they combined the wakefulness method and the other two, which led to a longer lasting effect.

They called their new method “chronotherapy”. According to the results, the longest positive effect lasted 9 weeks.

Triple therapy combines: sleep deprivation with light therapy, as well as the advancement of sleep phases in one direction or the other. That is, all participants in the experiment could not go to bed at the same time.

Sometimes it could happen during the day, not at night, or even in the morning.

However, a new study, which was conducted by experts from the University of Tufts (the University of California), also shed some light on the processes in the body. During the study, it was found that when a person does not get enough sleep, a large amount of a protein called adenosine begins to form in the body, which also changes the electrical impulses entering the brain, after which the mood improves.

Despite the various approaches of researchers and doubts, it can be concluded that constant changes in the phases of sleep and lack of sleep can prevent depression and significantly improve mood.
