Common Questions and Answers about Depression symptoms remedies


Avatar f tn Due to my emotions lately I have found that I could be suffering from mild depression and so I have been self medicating. I have my period at the moment and so I have been taking a red clover supplement (450mg) for those symptoms. For the rest of my depression symptoms I have been taking a St. John's Wort extract (300mg).

Avatar m tn A wide variety of supplements have shown some benefit in reducing anxiety and/or depression. Fish oil has been found to be helpful for both depression and anxiety. Supplementing with fish oil with a high percentage of the omega-3 fatty acid EPA has been shown to improve symptoms in moderate and major depression (although not in mild depression) and may help to improve the effectiveness of various antidepressant medications.
Avatar n tn I think you should mention this to your doctor. Home remedies, if there are any, might not be good in depression. Exercise helps release endorphins, which will.make you feel better, but I think you should talk to your doctor.

Good luck." There have not been any clinical studies to support magnesium being helpful in depression or anxiety symptoms. St. John's wort has been studied, however, and found to be helpful with symptoms of *mild* depression only.

1100339 tn?1257632597 One of the symptoms of Hashimotos is depression. Often that is treated as an entirely separate issue and overlooked as a brain chemical reaction from the Hashi's. Often stress brings on the depression from the Hashi's! If you can avoid taking anti-depressants or anxiety pills then do so. You may not realise it but the anti-depressant actually causes the chemicals in the brain to become worse, not better!

215461 tn?1331862765 I guess it was only a matter of time before depression grabbed me with its nasty claws. The constant anxiety has finally won over. I want to live life. I look out the window longing for some normalcy. I feel lonely and vulnerable. It's as if I am the only one in my world, physically. I'm tired. It's so tiring to constantly be fighting a battle you can't win.

Avatar m tn For more complete info on how to use natural remedies, as greenlydia said, try the complementary medicine forum. But with natural remedies as with medication, the only way you every know if it'll work is to take it, since people respond differently to different things. You also have to be careful taking natural remedies if you're on medication, and this one isn't recommended for anyone under 18, which is pretty odd for herbal remedies.
Avatar n tn What can be done to alleviate these symptoms? We are open to herbal remedies as well as traditional remedies and anything that anyone has had success with. Thank you.
Avatar n tn There are some natural remedies with anti-depressent effects but just like anti-depressents they have side effects and since they are not FDA approved some can be of concern. You would have to take them under a doctor's supervision regardless. However there are also a wide variety of options as regards standard anti-depressents and several different classes of anti-depressents and more categories in development.
