         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.   One of the natural therapies that can help ease your depression is EXERCISE.     
The benefits of exercise are not only physical, but also mental and psychological.  Exercise, particularly reduces the level of stress (adrenaline and cortisol) hormones in your body. Exercise also stimulates the production of endorphins, nor-epinephrine, and dopamine which are natural anti-depressants.  Walking - an excellent form of exercise lifts the mood, reduces stress, boosts self-esteem, protects against heart disease, prevents osteoporosis, manages weight, lowers blood pressure, strengthens the heart, lungs, and muscles, and improves energy levels. Bicycling, swimming, yoga, tai - chi are also other good ways to relieve the symptoms of stress and depression.
