It is difficult to state a "best" cure for any health condition, let alone a multi-faceted one like depression. In fact, I think that the most effective "cure" for depression probably includes a collection of different therapies, depending on the specifics of your personal depression.
What I mean is, if you are suffering for lack of sleep (insomnia) then part of your "cure" or treatment protocol might include drinking chamomile tea and implementing some slow breathing exercises before bed. On the other hand, if you are having a hard time finding the energy to go about your daily activities, part of your treatment regime might include exercise and a small amount of caffeine to act as a pick-me-up...
So as you can tell, the best treatment(s) for depression are personalized and specific to each individual! (This is actually what the entire field of integrative health care is about! Each person is unique and what works for one may not work for another!)
It sounds like you're on the right track since you've tried so many different kinds of treatments: medicine, diet, exercise, mind/body techniques etc. Did you try these together or in isolation? Did any of them work at all? Did some work only intermittently or not at all? Did you stick to trying them for a prolonged amount of time, or did you only try them each once? As you can see, there are MANY questions you might want to ask other than just "did this one treatment totally cure my depression or not?" It seems unlikely that any one treatment will cure all facets of your depression.
So, if you are trying these different treatments on your own, you will have to be very diligent and reflective about how much and in what way they might work for you. Also, it is important not to have unrealistic expectations of any one treatment. So, going to 2 yoga classes and still going through bouts of depression doesn't mean the yoga didn't work on some level. Most people would say that yoga should become a regular part of your week or day, and it may make you feel better physically, but not emotionally - or vica versa... as you can tell, there are many different ways in which any treatment may help treat different facets of your depression.
Perhaps having a therapist or health/wellness coach who can help talk you through your options. They can also help you recognize which treatments are really working well for you.
I hope that helps! Feel free to get in touch with me for more information (click on my profile).
