By Shereen

7 Home remedies for depression, do they exist or is it just a bunch of bull crap that people like to say exists.

It's most likely that you have had some form of depression at least once in your life.

I know I have, and still to this day, from time to time, I still get depressed for no reason what's so ever. 

I say to myself why I am depressed; I have no reason to be depressed; everything is going well in my life now. It's crazy, I know, but we all go through it from time to time.

In today's post, I would like to share seven home cures for depression that will have you feeling better in no time!

Depression is one of the most common mental disorder worldwide

Unfortunately, this ailment frequently stays undiagnosed because victims are too embarrassed to seek care. 

Even some of our most critical international leaders and philosophers have died prematurely due to this sickness because they did not seek help.

What is Depression

Depression is a severe medical condition. If it lasts longer than a couple of weeks, you should seek professional medical help right away.

However, many of us will experience brief periods of this ailment, which, in our opinion, can be adequately cured with home remedies.

Furthermore, adopting natural ingredients and ancient methods can instantly improve your spirits and restore your sense of well-being.

Here are seven home remedies for depression:

1. Chocolate

I'm sure many of you are thrilled to find that this delightful indulgence can help you feel better. However, many of you already knew that, didn't you?

However, before you head out to purchase your favorite chocolate bar or tub of ice cream, continue reading.

Milk chocolate, ice cream, and candy bars will exacerbate rather than alleviate your depression.

If you want to help lift your mood, you need dark, bitter chocolate.

While it may not melt in your mouth, it will improve your attitude and is one of the more effective home treatments for depression.

Organic bitter chocolate is available in upscale health food stores.

2. Herbal Treatments

St John's Wort has been extensively studied in Germany and elsewhere and has been shown to help alleviate mental and emotional tension and unhappiness. 

Skullcap is used to treat panic episodes, whereas lemon balm is utilized to mitigate physical strain.

If you are currently using antidepressant medication, you should see your doctor or health care provider before using these herbs.

3. Sunshine

It is widely established that persons who live in areas with more sunshine suffer from depression at a lower rate than those who live in areas with less sunlight.

Today, many of us spend more time indoors, and when we do venture outside, we wear strong sunblock to protect our skin.

It is strongly advised that you spend 15 - 20 minutes per day in the sun without using sunscreen.

Consult your doctor if you have any concerns, but for the majority, this amount of time should be safe and will significantly improve your mood and overall well-being.

Sunshine is one of the most potent natural antidepressants and should be utilized.

Additionally, you can purchase specialized light boxes that have been proven to be helpful in treating this illness.

4. Spiritual Faith

While many people flee at the thought of spiritualism or religion.

Harvard studies have shown that those who believe in a spiritual faith are less likely to suffer from depression. 

When they do, their bouts are frequently brief.

Thus, how is spiritual faith one of the natural antidepressant remedies?

Those who trust and believe in a higher power can turn to it for assistance when they are down.

Many are tied to communities of people who share a common faith, and these communities are frequently beneficial when one of their members is experiencing depression.

5. Exercise

Many of you anticipated it but hoped it would be avoided.

While you do not need to train for the next Ironman, taking a daily 30-minute walk.

It's also good to learn some basic Yoga or Tai Chi, or going for a trek in the woods and enjoying nature can all help boost one's mood significantly.

Please don't overdo it, but learning to incorporate daily exercise into your routine will improve your health and outlook on life.

6. Vitamins and Minerals

Proper diet and adequate vitamin and mineral intake are critical home treatments for depression.

Folic acid and selenium deficiency has been linked to prolonged bouts of depression and unhappiness.

Spinach and other dark green vegetables are excellent sources of folate (folic acid).

Selenium is abundant in tuna, mackerel, and other sea fish.

In Japan, a seaweed called hijiki has been discovered to be beneficial as a home remedy for depression.

It is most useful for mental well-being when combined with foods high in vitamin C, which aids the body in absorbing its numerous essential components.

7. Meditation and deep breathing

Stress plays a significant role in developing many of today's most prevalent chronic diseases, including depression.

Learning to calm the mind and decrease tension will go a long way toward reducing or eliminating depression episodes.

The majority of us take short, shallow breaths, depriving our bodies and minds of essential oxygen.

While meditating, focus on deep, belly breathing.

This will assist in removing other ideas and will benefit the body and mind significantly.

Harvard and others discovered that combining meditation and deep breathing produced what they dubbed the "Relaxation Response."

It only takes 15 - 30 minutes per day to Feel Better.

Meanwhile, I'll leave you with this bonus anti-blues treatment.

The mind is one of the most effective natural defenses you have against depression.

Acquire proficiency in its utilization.

Each morning as you awaken, tell yourself... 

"Every day, in every way, I am improving!"

When you are experiencing stress or sadness, take a minute to halt... close your eyes... inhale deeply with your nose while repeating,

"I am Alive"... and then exhale through your mouth while saying, "Thank you."

I hope you enjoyed todays post and feel free to share it will your family and friends. This helps us out a lot. 

Have a great day or night God Bless.
