Antidepressants do not cure depression.
A strong statement may be shocking to you, but it is a fact.
It is clear to us that this information may shock you because depression is still the subject of research in numerous scientific studies, and it has never been talked about enough. Medication and psychotherapy are still the golden standard for treating acute and chronic depression.
However, unlike many drugs designed to treat the diseases for which they were created, antidepressants actually change the chemistry of the brain, affecting the production of certain hormones that affect your mood and only during the period of consumption. Their effect is not long-lasting, nor can they achieve a permanent cure. So, their disadvantage is that they do not affect the cause of the disease and are effective only when taken.
Also, not all people react the same to psychotherapy. There are many cases in which people suffering from depression testified that it did not help them. We are not advocating a theory here that is against taking medication and going to psychotherapy; we just want to let you know that if you have tried all standard treatment methods and they have not helped you – you are not the only one, and it is okay to try some alternative, natural methods. Perhaps as a supplement to this standard therapy.
Whatever you do is better than nothing because depression, although often a medical condition, can develop into a severe illness, with symptoms of a mental disorder that can even precede suicide.
WHY DID WE FORGET ABOUT THE BEST THERAPIST – NATURE?
Due to the modern way of life and alienation from nature, it seems that we have forgotten that there is a cure for every disease in it. Our ancestors knew this very well. There are plenty of foods that are proven to help alleviate and cure depression.
Also, due to lack of time, we have suppressed some healthy life habits and routines that encourage good mood, develop cognition and allow us to look at life critically, with a strong focus on problem solving and satisfaction that comes with it, instead of focusing on the issue and how it negatively affects us.
Most people are unaware, but electromagnetic pollution and stress can also be triggers for depression because they change the brain’s chemistry in the same way that negative, pessimistic thoughts and feelings do. By disrupting biochemical processes in the cell, these factors affect the production of the hormones serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine, whose imbalance is responsible for depressive episodes and chronic depression.
Then let’s see what natural alternatives are available to you, which will at the same time prevent the appearance of depression, but also play a significant role in its cure, okay?
HABITS ARE A MIRACLE
We really think so. Habits can sometimes work wonders if they are good and if practicing them improves your mood. When you notice that – dedicate yourself to them, this is very important for general mental health, not only in depression but also for improving concentration, better productivity, and better interpersonal communication.
7 NATURAL WAYS TO FIGHT DEPRESSION
Withdraw from social networks and the virtual world and start writing a diary, no matter how awkward and funny your writing may seem.
Sometimes overdoing it with online life, at the expense of this real one, can cause enormous damage to your psyche. What is placed on the media, portals, and social networks are often idealized images of reality, making your life seem meaningless, empty, and boring, and in fact, it is not so at all. The tabloids and the black chronicle are something you have to avoid in a wide arc if you are prone to pessimism and reactive to bad news.
People who suffer from depression tend to retreat to their “cave”, which is entirely counterproductive, although it seems like a great idea – you don’t bother anyone, you don’t have to talk about how you feel, and the claws of depression tighten. Talking to at least one person will help you release your emotions.
Achieving a solid connection with your mind and taking complete control of your thoughts is the goal. Because from that position, you can understand what your trigger for bad mood and depression is. When you do that, you will be able to easily modify problematic thoughts and thus be your own psychotherapist, in essence.
You will open your own mind. An open mind is not depressed.
Find a hobby.
It sounds trivial, we know, but this is precisely what you need – an occupation with things that trigger brain activity and relax tension and stress. Here are just some ideas: painting, collecting, but also through outdoor and outdoor activities that act multiple times as a hobby and as a physical activity that is especially recommended for people prone to depression, such as cycling, walking, running…
What hobbies should bring to your daily rhythm is routine, which is absolutely necessary for depressed people because it gives you a reason to start, even when you don’t want to.
Healthy, fresh, and easy diet.
Pay attention to what, when, and how much you eat. Taking control of these parts of your life will give you some stability. Enjoy meal preparation – it can be another beneficial routine.
Freshly prepared foods, squeezed juices, green vegetables, and foods rich in Omega-3 acids, such as salmon and tuna are effective in improving mood.
Add magnesium and vitamin B to your diet – magnesium will give you energy, stabilize brain cells and regulate heart rate, and vitamin B (especially B12) plays a vital role in balancing mood-regulating hormones.
Start the day with green tea and finish it with chamomile tea – the freshness of green tea and the power to cleanse you of toxins will help cleanse your mind and body, while chamomile will relax you before bed. Why does this matter? Because depression often affects the quality of sleep and the rhythm of wakefulness and sleep.
