Avatar m tn Someone knows natural remedies for depression but without allopathic chemicals?Thanks!
Avatar m tn s Wort is for depression, not anxiety, and will only work if the anxiety is caused by depression. There are so many anxiety remedies, and they work better in combination. A good book to start with is Natural Highs by Hyla Cass, a psychiatrist at UCLA, though it's getting old. But if you don't know your natural medicine, it's very complicated, since different parts of the world have different remedies and systems.
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.
3060903 tn?1398565123 Magnesium, a vital mineral nutrient, is perhaps one of the most important natural anxiety remedies because of its effectiveness, record of safe use, availability and value. Eating foods that are rich in magnesium is an important step in correcting a magnesium deficiency naturally. Magnesium can be found most abundantly in coconut water, kelp, cashews, buckwheat, molasses, brazil nuts, pumpkin seeds, cocoa powder and rice bran.Too much magnesium may cause loose stools.
Avatar f tn What self-help tips can I try to ease nausea? Ginger Ginger is often claimed to be effective against pregnancy sickness. However ginger may make your symptoms worse or cause you to have heartburn. Ginger is a common remedy in Chinese medicine. It's based on the system of yin and yang and other opposing factors, including heat and cold. Ginger is a hot (yang) remedy and will make your sickness worse if you are already too hot.
Avatar f tn I have had dandruff for many many years, and I've tried almost every type of dandruff shampoo out there..I've visited dermatologists on several occasions and they never seem to have anything that works either. Is there any natural remedies out there that seem to help improve? I've heard things like olive oil applied to the scalp may help, but I've not tried it out yet. My scalp gets red and very irritated and itchy....its a major issue in the winter time more than the summer..
Avatar f tn I was dx with a stomach ulcer Mar 13. Took nexium 2 months. Symptoms started returning in a month. Started taking apple cider vinegar, cayenne. Mastic gum and glut amine supplements in Dec and feel much better. Will never take rip off drug company nexium again.
Avatar f tn Every spring since my baby was born (3 yrs ago) I feel like I'm coming out of a fog when the weather warms up and the sun shines more. The "fog" creeps up so gradually, I don't realize it's there. I found out I was pregnant in April and felt MUCH better, almost giddy. I recently lost the baby. I'm coping well. Could this be a seasonal depression? If so, are there any natural remodies that might help?
200828 tn?1209917975 "Some say magnessium (sic), some say your diet has a lot to do with it, St. johns wart (sic). Do some research on natural rememdies (sic). It really is trial and error. 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.
Avatar n tn Please let me know, my son has been doing research on natural remedies because he just thinks chemo kills too many other cells.
1383383 tn?1279356881 Mood is generally good. Interested in "natural" mood improvement through the use of "herbal" remedies such as St. Johns Wort, Valerian Root, Sam-E, as well as physical exercises including Yoga, deep breathing, stretching, etc.
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.
1017096 tn?1255968300 Folic acid and Vitamin D-3. Folic acid I believe helps with fatiuge (tiredness). And I know the D-3 must be for the winter season here in Vermont, USA where I live. I hope you are feeling well! And I'm glad to talk if you would like.
Avatar n tn I would say as for natural remedies they are an unknown quantity so that's never a good thing. And nothing should be taken except under the supervision of a psychiatrist. As for what was mentioned (and from personal experience) tyrosine and taurine are dangerous. Don't try them. 5TTP I'd say the evidence is inconclusive.
Avatar f tn But if it works, some pharmaceutical companies have programs to make it affordable to those with limited income. Natural remedies are best used in combination. Because Cymbalta affects both norepineprine and serotonin, it's known as a stimulating anti-depressant, which is why it wouldn't usually be a first line treatment for a case where anxiety was the main problem.
Avatar f tn Hello Everyone, Can anyone tell me some effective natural remedies for Anxiety Relief?
761653 tn?1266271699 I guess it's ture that during the winter months, when we aren't getting enough sun light (vitamin D) in our lives, makes us depressed. And well it's ture, or it is for me at least, and I try and be out in the daylight, however, it's difficult when there are subzero temperatures... not to mention working full time, and taking care of my son. It's hard and it's begnning to wear on me and DH's relationship.
Avatar f tn Be aware that supplementing medication is not easy for the average layperson to do safely -- medications have a lot of contraindications against taking some of the best "natural" remedies for depression. I put natural in quotes. because some natural remedies aren't all that natural, they're still pharmaceutical products, but because they do use substances found in nature they can't be patented.
Avatar n tn Right but these natural remedies should taken with the supervision of a psychiatrist. Even though they are natural remedies they are still anti-depressents. Natural doesn't mean "safe" or "harmless". It also doesn't mean "ineffective" either. Some are highly effective. But it does mean "unregulated". I take rhodiola for tardive dyskinesia and what they are identifying as tardive psychosis.
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.
Avatar m tn i am taking zoloft, I have heard of many natural remedies to battle depression. kira St johns with 5htp, etc. Does anyone have a recommendation, specific brand and product?
Avatar f tn I would like some natural supplement suggestions that might help combat anxiety and depression. I appreciate any information or guidance!
Avatar m tn d see someone who does to guide you -- usually remedies are combined to work on different parts of the body for best results, but therapy and lifestyle changes are always included in the natural treatment of mental illness. A good book for an overview of natural remedies is Natural Highs by Hyla Cass, a psychiatrist at UCLA. Good luck.
