What is the best treatment method for depression

Depression is one of the real bad feelings any person can get and while there are hundreds of articles talking about treating depression online still there seems to be a debate about the best treatment method for depression.

For me, a psychologist who studied engineering the best treatment for depression is the one that works. Because results are my primary concern only the treatment method that brings quick results is considered the best treatment method for depression according to my point of view.

Some people say that exercising is the best way to treat depression others say that medications are the best treatment for depression while a third group says that psychotherapy and CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) is the best treatment method.

In this article i will examine those treatment methods with you and tell you about the real best treatment method for depression.

Can depression be treated by exercising?

While exercising was proven to be very effective in improving the mood of depressed people still i cannot call it a treatment method.

Yes Depressed people who started exercising for 30 minutes each day started to experience a relief from depression but this doesn't mean at all that exercising is the best treatment method for depression.

Exercising is something that you can use along side your treatment in order to feel better but depending on it completely will certainly yield no result.

Are Depression medications the best treatment method for depression?

Anyone who has more than average knowledge about depression medications understands that they are as effective as placebos. (see Do depression medications work)

I am not saying that depression medications can't make the person feel better but certainly they are not the best treatment method for depression if used on their own.

The problem with medications is that they work on hiding the symptoms of depression instead of fixing the root cause for depression itself and that's why they can't be considered a treatment method if used on their own.

So what is the best way for treating depression?

In my book, The ultimate guide to getting over depression i said that depression is a sate of loss of a hope the person reaches after failing to accomplish an important goal. Depression is no more than a protest done by the mind because it failed to get what it really wanted.

Now how come can exercising help someone who lost hope regain hope?
And how can medication treat depression if loss of hope was the real cause?

Lots of people think that depression in teenagers differs from depression in men or even depression during pregnancy while that's not true. Depression in all cases is an indication of the absence of hope and the presence of important goals.

Based on all of the previous facts here is the best treatment method for depression:

  • Use pain killers but understand their nature: Use depression medication and exercise to feel better but don't make the mistake of thinking of them as the treatment method for depression because they are just supporting tools
  • Understand the root cause and not the biological one: Depression is the result of imbalance in brain chemicals. So What? Who cares? What caused that imbalance in the first place? Answering this question is the key to treating depression
  • Restore Hope: Depression is the absence of hope. Depression and hope can't coexist together. Once you find out a way to restore hope your depression will ease. In fact the best treatment method for depression is the one that allows you to find hope in getting that thing you wanted
