It is estimated that a quarter of all people in most industrialized countries will suffer from depression at some time in their lives.

The good news is depression can be cured and here we will look at some alternative therapies and also some simple diet changes that can help.

We will also look at two natural supplements one of which is being hailed as a wonder cure and it’s totally natural.

There are a variety of natural treatments, so let’s look at them.

1. Massage

Is a fantastic stress and anxiety buster, which is a major cause of depression.

Massage is deeply relaxing and can be enhanced by an aromatherapist who uses a blend of oils to help alleviate both physical and mental anxieties and stress.

2. Meditation

When the body experiences total relaxation through meditation, mental clarity starts improves and many people can see things more clearly. Yoga and Tai Chi are great for this.

3. Healing with color

It is well known that color affects our mood and can enhance both elation and depression and changing colors around you will help immensely.

It may sound odd at first but color is the first thing we register above all else.

Chromotherapy works by studying a pattern of vibrations produced by your body which can be deciphered by a trained color therapist.

If you feel depressed, your body produces an unbalanced pattern of vibrations.

The therapist aims to adjust these patterns, restoring balance.

Chromotherapy is a proven treatment for mild depression that works.

4. Chiropractic and osteopathy

Ease headaches, neck ache and back pain by manipulating the bones of the body. Pain is one of the causes leading to depression symptoms can be alleviated.

These therapies also boost energy levels, helping the depressed person have more energy and able to cope with life’s ups and downs better.

5. Reflexology

Can also reduce tension by working on specific points on the foot, which correspond to emotional and physical ailments.

Reflexology can leave you feeling better, more energetic and generally more positive.

6. Herbs and supplements

There are many supplements and foods recommended to combat depression but in a recent study was concluded all you need is a healthy and well rounded diet, but there are three supplements you could try and one of them is being hailed as natures wonder drug:

A. St Johns Wort

Some people swear by it others are skeptical, but the amount of people who take and feel it helps, means its worth trying. It’s natural and will certainly do you no harm.

B. L Tyrosine

Supports and assists neurotransmitters in the brain. When the body is stressed or tired the availability of L-Tyrosine is depleted.

L-Tyrosine supplementation can help reduce stress, improves mental alertness, and enhances mood.

C Could this be natures wonder cure?

There is a huge amount of excitement about organic nicotine (removed from cigarettes) It’s a known fact that smokers get depressed less than smokers and that in clinical tests it has been proven that 70% of people suffering depression saw vast improvement when treated with nicotine.

Nicotine is known to switch on receptors on the surface of cells in parts of the brain, this causes the neurons to release the Neuron transmitter dopamine, a chemical that affects our mood.

There is a huge amount of research going on to deliver nicotine in pure organic form to treat depression and the first is on the market nicotine in water.

Originally aimed at smokers when they couldn’t or didn’t wish to smoke, many people with depression have been taking it for its affect on their mood.

All the above 3 supplements are available without prescription.

Depression affects a huge number of people and not all people are cured in the same way, but the above gives you a variety of natural cures you can try if you feel depressed and cure your mood naturally.
