Anti-depressants. Do you really need them? Better than anti-depressants are the natural cures. Here’s How to break out of depression naturally
Anti-depressants. Do you really need them? A better way to break out of depression is the natural way.
It was reported recently that 1 in 10 US adults take antidepressants. When I read this I was very sad. What made my mood worse was when I read that less than a third of the people taking antidepressants have actually been to a mental health professional in the past twelve months. The truth of the matter is that the majority of people taking antidepressants do not need them.
White women constitute the biggest group of people taking antidepressants. 400% more white women are taking antidepressants now as compared to in the early 90s. It isn’t that there are that many more people with depression. It’s simply that anti-depressants are now seen as the “Go to” solution for depression.
I’m not a doctor, but I do know what it is like to experience depression. . . don’t we all? We all suffer from feelings of depression from time to time. It seems it doesn’t take much to leave us feeling depressed. Not exercising, eating unhealthy diets, spending too long on the computer. . . these are all causes of depression. And there are simple and healthy solutions.
Let’s put away the anti-depressants and get back to the natural way.
How to break out of depression naturally
1: Go to a counsellor: There is no shame in going to a counsellor. In fact, there’s plenty to be proud about about going to a counsellor – at least you are facing your problems and trying to overcome them, that’s a lot better than ignoring the issue. A counsellor can advise you on options for handling depression. Just talking about depression can help you a lot. It will make you see that there are solutions and that there are ways to beat depression.
Walking is immensely relaxing. In fact, doctors in Europe actually prescribe walking as a treatment for depression! Doing some gentle exercise somewhere relaxing out in nature gives your body and mind a chance to heal. You can also see that the natural world has its own ups and downs too. There are times when the world is joyful—like in Spring—and times when it is in hibernating, like in winter. It is all a cycle, as is depression. Depression will eventually lead back to happiness, just as winter becomes spring.
3: Sunshine on a rainy day:
It wasn’t that long ago that Vitamin D supplements were considered a breakthrough supplement that could prevent you from getting depression. Now we know that that isn’t entirely true. Sunshine is the cure. Mother nature knows how to cure us and one of mother nature’s best cures is the sun. Go out there and bask in
