Natural Remedies for Depression

Written by sshowalter, ritasharma.

There are many natural remedies for depression available that can both treat the cause of depression as well as mitigate some depression symptoms.

Some widely known natural remedies for depression include herbs like St. John’s Wort and Kava, dietary changes (restrictions and/or supplements), mind based therapies like psychotherapy, body therapies like yoga, exercise and massage, and spiritually based therapies like meditation and hypnotherapy. Below are some benefits of these natural treatments for depression:

  • Herbs, supplements and relaxation techniques can help reduce depression symptoms without dramatic side effects which can be associated with depression medications
  • Natural remedies can address the root cause of depression (depending, of course, on the person and their unique cause). Stress or dietary deficiencies are examples of depression causes that can often be treated through natural remedies.
  • Natural remedies for depression encourage contact with other types of health professionals such as massage therapists, acupuncturists and herbalists that can expand your methods of approaching depression treatment.

Diet for Depression

Diet for depression Diet (and nutritional deficiencies) can play a large role in the manifestation and perpetuation of a depression diagnosis. Similarly then, diet and dietary supplements can be a wonderful natural remedy for depression; that is, assuming you’re consuming natural foods! Omega-3s and fish oil supplements can be specifically helpful as these fatty acids are essential but not produced by the body. Vitamin D (which is actually a “precursor hormone”) is responsible for making many biological functions possible in the body, including hormone balance, which is often cited as being partly responsible for depression and depression symptoms. Choosing a diet full of high quality foods that does NOT include processed sugars, processed oils, and/or processed animal products and excludes excess caffeine and alcohol is a wonderful natural remedy for depression.

Herbs for Depression

Herbs for Depression St. John’s Wort and Kava are the two herbs most commonly used as natural remedies for depression (and sometimes anxiety). In fact, St. John’s Wort is prescribed more frequently than antidepressant medications in other countries like Germany. When looking for these or other herbs for depression, it’s important to buy high quality herbs and to consult with a trained practitioner (like a licensed herbalist or naturopathic doctor.) Many clinical trials have proven the efficacy of different herbs for the treatment of depression, citations of which can be found alongside the shared personal experiences with herbs for depression liked below.

Mind Body Therapies for Depression

The mind and the body are absolutely intertwined, and at times we can treat ailments of the body with the mind, and those of the mind with the body. A great natural way to cure depression is to focus on modalities that address both aspects, especially since depression symptoms often include both mental aspects and physical sensations. Yoga, meditation, exercise, guided imagery hypnotherapy, dance and music therapy and many more natural mind-body therapies can be used as they include both mental and physical components.

Therapy for Depression

One of the most well-known and effective natural remedies for depression is psychotherapy. Psychotherapy has the ability to help cure depression as it both helps people understand the mental causes of their depression, and aids them in creating new thought patterns and emotional habits that can sustain them throughout life. Other therapies however can also be helpful to naturally treat depression.

ALS, is like having a rotten ill-tempered stranger take residence in your house who keeps getting more obnoxious as the days go by, a stranger that is one day destined to knock over a lamp and burn your house down. Will he ever go away? My husband was diagnosed of ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) 2 years ago at Patton State Hospital California, the doctor told us there was no known cure for the disease, we were given medications to help the symptoms. After 1 year and 2 months, the symptoms have got worse and we had to look for an alternative treatment since the doctors were not helping. I read an article online last 3 month about Dr. Godsent Yare herbal healing home in Africa who prepare and sell herbal medicines to cure all kinds of diseases including ALS/MND, I contacted the Herbal Doctor through his WhatsApp and purchased the ALS herbal remedy, we received the herbal remedy within 3 days and my husband immediately commenced usage, He drank the ALS herbal cure Doc. Yare prepared for him 3 times daily. OMG!! after 1 week of usage some of the symptoms like clumsiness and his very slurred speech had stopped, he continues usage the 4th week he'd got a lot better that even the doctors could not believe it. It totally cured him and we have told so many people about it. Now my husband can work freely without any assistant. Friends! With Doc. Yare, you can get that incurable disease cured. it's all thanks to God and also to you Doc. Yare, for your continued help, and wonderful knowledge of God's life-saving herbs. You are truly a Godsent!! If you need help or know anyone still suffering from ALS/MND or any other disease, contact him on: dryareherbalcurehome@gmail.com Call and Whatsup: +2348164653711. Website: http://bit.ly/2dBFYeW. Please share this awesome cure with everyone everywhere, Sharing is Caring. Together We Fight to Stay Healthy.
