  3. Abusing drugs and alcohol. Substance abusers tends to develop depression. One thing you can do is to eliminate alcohol and drugs from your systems. This will cause your body to recover.
  4. Financial stress. Financial problems are stressful. You need to stop spending more than you earn. Try to get rib of debt and live a simple life. Live within your means and you’ll have no more sleepless nights about finances.
  5. Digestive disorders. Gut flora influences behavior and brain chemistry. For example, those who has irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) commonly suffer from anxiety and depression.
  6. Medications. Some antidepressants causes increased levels of depression. They can also increased the risk of suicidal ideation.
  7. Nutritional deficiencies. Deficiencies in vital nutrients such as vitamin B complex, iron, amino acids, omega 3 fatty acids, magnesium, iodine, zinc, and selenium can produce depression. Correcting the deficiency in these nutrients will also correct depression.
