NATURAL ALTERNATIVES TO ALLEVIATE/REDUCE THE SYMPTOMS OF DEPRESSION



There are many natural therapies that you can utilize to help ease or alleviate your depression; in addition to your conventional talk therapy and medications, if you choose too.  Please consult with your doctor and pharmacist if you decide to take any herbs along with you medications.  There can be negative interactions; especially with St. Johns Wort. 

You would be surprised how simple things like walking everyday for twenty minutes in sunlight can improve your mood and help you sleep better.  Supplements can also help your depression as can eating healthy. Yoga is excellent for you mentally and physically.  Meditation can reduce blood pressure, relieve stress, and open your mind and consciousness to light and a Higher Power.  Journaling can put you in touch with your feelings.  Visualizing and affirming your dreams and goals are positive steps toward a healthier and productive life. Having a grateful heart puts a positive perspective on things.
