Aiding Depression without the Use of Drugs!

Finding an alternative treatment plan to the usual drug regiment for depression has been an ongoing discussion in the medical and physiological specialties over the last few years.
While I do not advocate for you to stop any treatment immediately, I want to give you alternative resources to explore concerning your mental health.

Diet And Nutrition:
The effects of additives and colors in our food, can alter our mental health. Explore options with your nutritionist or dietitian, that can aid in your recovery from depression.

Exercise raises your body image, your self-esteem and balances your hormone levels. Consider a moderate, supervised exercise program, that includes stress-busting yoga, walking, and meditation.

Alternative Healing Practices:
If you feel comfortable with the more alternative approaches, try EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), which is a form of acupressure, as well as Reiki Healing. Both forms have been known to ease and in some cases cure the symptoms of depression relatively rapidly.

Within the next few days, I will be posting books, and websites that can aid you in exploring a more alternative, but effective approach to aiding your depression-free life.

Have a wonderful day!
