Natural Treatments for Depression

Posted Nov 18 2008 12:13am 1 Comment
Over the past few months- in fact it's almost been just about a year- I have been struggling with depression and anxiety. I have tried many medications over the years because I have gone in and out of depression a few times before, and almost all of them made me feel sick, or off in one way or another. Recently, I have been looking into natural ways to deal with my depression, and here is what I have come up with so far
SupplementsOmega 3's
L- Tyrosine
SAMe
B-Complex
L-tryptophan
St. Johns Wart
Magnesium
GABA
Vitamin C

DietElimination of allergic foods
Avoid gluten and wheat products
Limit sugar (including fruits)
Cut down on caffeine
Stop using artificial sweeteners
Limit alcohol consumption
Drink enough water

OtherSAD lamp if depression is worse in the fall and winter months
Get some form of exercise everyday
Take in some sun daily
Meditate
Take up a hobby
Go to a support group or therapy
Ask God and the Universe to help you find solutions
Love and accept yourself

Please share anything that you may have found helpful on this topic - I appreciate whatever input you may wish to provide. I know for myself that life is too short to feel like you have nothing to look forward to, and I am hoping that I can find the best natural solutions so that I can enjoy my life (and pass this knowledge onto to you too!).

great post. I can highly recommend MoodBoost Drink, it's an all naturally flavored drink mix supplement for  mood support and energy. It contains many of the ingredients that you listed above and also tastes great!
