A warm welcome to our website page on Natural help for Depression.
Are you feeling down in the dumps today? You have a deep feeling of sadness and you really don't even feel like getting out of bed, let alone getting out of your pyjamas?
The chances are that you ARE suffering from depression.
The above sounds almost lighthearted which is not our intention, depression coupled with low self esteem and lack of self confidence is like falling into a big black hole that you have trouble getting out of.
In some people, depression can clear spontaneously after a few days, but in other cases it requires professional help and support.
Please see your Doctor or Health Care Provider if any of the above symptoms apply to you, and before you start any sort of self medication.
Now we are going to show you some "god-given stuff" to help in the most natural way possible.
Vitamin B6 helps maintain a healthy nervous system, and a lack of this vitamin can cause depression, so add these foods liberally to your diet:
Research shows that low levels of fatty acids may be a reason for depression, and this is the list of what you should be eating:
Licorice has anti-spasmodic properties, is used to treat low blood pressure, and is most useful as an expectorant in treating bronchial disorders.
Do not use licorice if you have high blood pressure, liver, kidney or heart disease and if you are pregnant or nursing.
Oregano will help relieve aching muscles, bruising, tonsillitis and anxiety.
Zinc is often found to be deficient in people suffering from depression (see zinc deficiency).
Calcium is needed for the proper function of the nervous system (see calcium deficiency).
Magnesium and calcium work together as a team so rather combine them (see magnesium deficiency).
