I am really into natural remedies when it comes to those I love. I believe the pharmaceutical companies do not create cures, they create customers. No business would create something that would put them out of business and we all know that most medication only comes with worse side effects than they symptoms we were facing to begin with. So I began to look into natural remedies for depression because there are so many people out there who are suffering needlessly.
The first thing I discovered was a lack of vitamin D will cause depression. Vitamin D is absorbed by the sun, which is why in the winter time so many people suffer from cabin fever. Now having too much vitamin D can cause things such as kidney stones or a high heart rate so you cannot just go around eating a ton of vitamin D. The fact is most Americans have a vitamin deficiency so it is likely you are lacking some vitamin D in your diet. The best way to get vitamin D in your diet is to first get some sun each day, and to eat things such as mushrooms, tuna, salmon, and eggs.
The second natural remedy that will help with depression is called St. Johns Wart. St. Johns Wart is a natural supplement that comes from a flower. It is a great way to treat depression, and it also detoxifies you liver at the same time. You must be careful when taking St. Johns Wart if you are taking any other medications such as birth control because it will cause the medication to metabolize much faster which moves them out of your system before they can take effect.
B vitamins are also great for depression! When you take B vitamins, you need to take all of them, not just one. There are B vitamin complex supplements sold which contain the entire family of B vitamins. They are very cheap around 6 dollars per bottle. Another great benefit of taking B vitamins is that they will boost your energy level which anyone suffering with depression knows is needed.
Omega 3 is the last natural remedy I would like to discuss with you. All of us need this fatty substance for our brain for it to work properly. It has also been found that ADHD may be caused from the lack of fatty acids on the brain. This is safe for almost everyone to take except if you are taking a blood thinning medication.
Depression is a very serious mental disorder which affects all the parts of our lives from home to work to school. It may feel like you will never get out of this deep dark hole you are in but there is hope. These are just a few natural remedies to help those who are suffering from depression. It is important to talk to your doctor if you are have thoughts of suicide. It is also important that you have someone you can talk to about how you are feeling whether it be a spouse or a friend. One last tip for overcoming depression is to keep a journal every day of your feelings, this helps you to get them out and will make you begin to feel better in not time.
