Question on Alternative Treatments for Depression

I've been wondering about alternative treatments for depression.  I find myself suffering from depression again, and would like to treat it naturally.  I had been on Zoloft previously and it did work as recommended with no side affects but I would like to stay off the pharmaceuticals. I am taking Levothyroxine for low thyroid and my thyroid levels have been fine recently.

I have been vegan for over 5 years now and eat a lot of raw food.  I have been using several of the supplements recommended such as Iosol, conconut oil, and ground flax seed daily.  I also take a womens multi-vitamin, iron supplement, Vitamin D and calcium. My vitamin levels were checked a few months ago, and this is why I am now taking the Vitamin D and calcium daily.  Other than that everything was fine.

I am certainly not suicidal and never will be, but I have not been getting any exercise lately due to a long work commute.  Also when it's hard to get out of bed in the morning, you certainly do not feel like exercising.

Any suggestions you can make would be helpful.

Thank You.

It's good to hear that you are consciously looking after yourself with good nutrition and are aware that you are missing out of exercise. I can see why you are looking for an alternative treatment to pharmaceuticals.

Have you heard of Bioenergy Healing ? RaphaYad TM Bio-energy Healing is a leading-edge technique that can uniquely access your body's bio-electromagnetic [energy field] circuitry system. It is a single source of treatment that moves treatment beyond the textbook and addresses you as an individual.

This dynamic approach can have a fundamental and positive affect on your bioelectromagnetic field that is responsible for the communication of each cell in your body; their ability to function; your innate healing and repair mechanism; and not least your mind.

RaphaYad TM Bio-energy Healing uses a unique and precision scanning technique that can pinpoint the root cause of your blockages that manifest as emotional, psychological, physical, physiological and energy symptoms.   

The hands-on/off techniques can release the blockages and memory patterns on a cellular level. Whilst on a  neuron level can transform your perception of your world, by way of rewiring your brain, rather like pressing master reset buttons. 

We have been treating clients with depression and anxiety related symptoms for over 8 years and have very positive, sustained results. Please take a look at the website: www.bioenergyhealing.org.uk and click on 'case notes' to read how we have helped others in the past.

 The key factor that holds your Depression and emotional / psychological symptoms in place is memory patterns. It is these memory patterns and cross wiring in your brain that creates a level of disorder and in some cases chaos that can have a dramatic affect on your perception.  

 Just remember, whatever you perceive is what you are perceiving at that moment in time. There is nothing permanent about the way you think or process or recall information. What you perceive at this moment in time may be completely different in 6 months or 6 years time.

It sounds like you are aware of foods/ activities that can help alleviate depression however sometimes it is not purely for physical reasons that depression happens. I use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reproccessing) with a high effectiveness rating for treating the emotions that fuel depression and anxiety. Although EMDR might sound like a scary name/ procedure it is actually very simple procedure, totally natural and non-invasive.

You can find out more on my website: www.OndinaWellness.com
