Basically when the coldness increases in the brain, it increases the chance of depression and other diseases.
However usually the depression occurs due to emotional reason (s) but what makes it worse is using cold type of foods and a wrong diet.
So there are 2 elements: Emotional/spiritual and physical (food and climate)
Example for the first one is China and USA which are the countries with the highest rate of depression according to the statistics.
Having no beliefs and spiritual relations through a religion is a cause of depression and suicide as we see Atheism and not following any religion is common in US and China.
The interesting thing in the official statistics is that the Islamic countries are at the end of this list which shows they have the least suicide and depression in the world.
Example for the second reason is South Korea and Japan which are the two countries with high rate of suicide.
Cold and humid weather and having Fish and rice as regular food of people are 2 common reasons which makes the brain cold and that can lead into depression and suicide. Islamic scholars believe when the brain becomes cold, decision making and planning firmly will be difficult and this coldness can spread into all organs of the body.
In fact people with cold temperament are more potential to become depressed.
Another common reason of depression and making the body cold is taking chemical medicines.
For example the women having caesarean delivery are much more potential to be depressed than those who have natural delivery and that’s mostly because of the chemicals injections and the strong medicines which cause numbness.
❌ What to avoid:
