It is estimated that around 25 per cent of adults are affected by varicose veins  and the condition is most common in women. What Causes Varicose Veins  The arteries in our body carry blood from the heart to the rest of the tissues and the veins return blood from the rest of the body to your heart, so that there is blood recirculation. Image credit The veins have one-way valves, which means the blood can travel only in one direction. If the veins are damaged and not working properly, the blood can flow backwards. This leads to the accumulation of blood in the veins rather than travelling to the heart. This, in turn, causes the veins to stretch, twist and become enlarged and swollen.

A team of scientists from several universities in England investigated the effectiveness of modafinil as a supplemental therapy for depression in patients with two forms of depression: major depressive disorder and bi-polar depression. Researchers examined the results of already completed studies that had included modafinil as a supplemental treatment for depression, used in conjunction with anti-depressant medication. They ultimately evaluated data from 6 clinical trials that included a total of 910 patients, including 568 with major depressive disorder and 342 with bi-polar depression. Their analysis revealed that patients who took modafinil in addition to anti-depressants were more likely to experience significant improvements to their depression, and more likely to enter remission.

In addition to lessening the severity of depression and increasing rates of remission, the use of modafinil also resulted in … [Read more...] about Narcolepsy Drug Shows Promise in Depression Treatment

However, studies on how various activities (coloring, doodling and drawing) impact mood and self-regulation continue to emerge; here are three recent studies that add to a growing understanding of these activities’ influence on general well-being: 1) Forkosh and Drake (2017) Coloring Versus Drawing: Effects of Cognitive Demand on Mood Repair, Flow, and Enjoyment.
