NATURAL REMEDIES FOR DEPRESSION

Depression may be thought of as a contraction of oneself, a shutting down, and a sense of giving up from a place of hopelessness. Depression has been shown to respond to a range of natural interventions that complement seeing a psychotherapist and getting a treatment plan in Perth for healing Depression.  Alternatively you can try out some natural treatments which may help cure your Depression.

NATURAL TREATMENT OPTIONS FOR DEPRESSION INCLUDE

  • Getting the body moving via exercise like walking
  • Getting sunlight to stimulate Serotonin and Dopamine production in the body
  • Laughing
  • Abdominal breathing
  • Massage of tight body muscles
  • Regular Yoga and meditation that has positive affirmations
  • Naturopathic Support
  • Practice Mindfulness
  • Reduce caffeine and alcohol consumption
  • Talk to others rather than isolate
  • Less TV, social media, internet and gaming devices
  • Vent suppressed anger in a pool underwater or via boxercise
  • Give permission for emotions and feelings and not just thinking
  • Natural supplements like St John’s Wort (under Naturopathic guidance)
  • Focus on just this day
  • Develop a spiritual practice
  • Practice forgiveness and letting go of past hurts or failures
  • Practice gratitude

These techniques may be beneficial if used regularly. If they do not significantly improve your Depression, then we recommend you seek additional advice and guidance of an experienced body mind therapist in Perth who practices our form of Depression Therapy.
