Overcome Depression Naturally

Anti-depressants have been shown to cause dangerous side effects, including suicide and homicides, especially if you try to stop cold turkey; only stop while working with a qualified health professional.

Stay safe, use natural ways to reduce depression. First, realize that if you've lost someone or something important to you, it's natural to be sad. Allow yourself to have the feeling during your daily 15-minute grieving period every day.

Other things you can do to curb depression are:

1.  Stop eating sugar in any form--soft drinks, sodas, cake, pie, candy, many canned goods and more. Check labels. Sugar has been found to be more addictive than cocaine. That's right, if you're eating sugar, you're hooked. One of my clients told me if she didn't eat chocolate every day, she couldn't go on. Sugar also can stress your adrenal glands and put you on an up and cown cycle whereby your body demands more sugar every few hours. Slowly withdraw from sugar and stay away from it because you can become addicted again with just one food or drink that contains sugar, and many them also contain caffeine, such as chocolate. see below.

2.  Caffeine in any form--from coffee, to tea, colas, and even some medications--gives you a high, and then a low. Gradually reduce your coffee or caffeinated tea intake by drinking half decaf and half caf drinks and slowly moving toward decaf drinks. Water is best, but any non-caffeinated drink is better than caffeine, which also leaches the minerals and B-bitamins out of your body. B-vitamins are responsible for you having a good mood, so you don't want to lose them.

3. To feel better, eat meals that relax you, not that addict you.
