Depression may be brought on by:

  • Disappointment at home, work, or school (in teens, this may be breaking up with a boyfriend or girlfriend, failing a class, or parents divorcing)
  • Death of a friend or relative
  • Prolonged pain or having a major illness
  • Medical conditions such as hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid), cancer, or hepatitis
  • Drugs such as sedatives and high blood pressure medications
  • Alcohol or drug abuse
  • Chronic stress
  • Childhood events like abuse or neglect
  • Social isolation (common in the elderly)
  • Nutritional deficiencies (such as folate and omega-3 fatty acids)
  • Sleeping problems

If you are depressed for 2 weeks or longer, you should contact your doctor, who can offer treatment options. Regardless of whether you have mild or major depression, the following natural treatment for depression can help:

  • Get enough sleep.
  • Follow a healthy, nutritious diet.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Avoid alcohol, marijuana, and other recreational drugs.
  • Get involved in activities that make you happy, even if you don't feel like it.
  • Spend time with family and friends.
  • Try talking to clergy or spiritual advisors who may help give meaning to painful experiences.
  • Consider prayer, meditation, tai chi, or biofeedback as ways to relax or draw on your inner strengths.
  • Add omega-3 fatty acids to your diet, which you can get from cold-water fish like tuna, salmon, or mackerel.
  • Take folate (vitamin B9) in the form of a multivitamin (400 to 800 micrograms).
  • If your depression occurs in the fall or winter months, try light therapy using a special lamp that mimics the sun.

Although adding vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids to your diet is an effective natural treatment for depression it may be difficult to do due to taste, lifestyle and discipline constraints. Fortunately, health supplements are an excellent alternative and should be considered.

Our personal suggestion for a high quality and effective supplement as a natural treatment for depression.
