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.
