How to cure depression naturally

Is there a natural cure for depression? or should people stick to medication?

One of the facts few people know about depression medications is that they are no more effective than placebos. Every now and then a new research is published that shows that the success rate of depression medications in curing depression is no higher than that of a placebo.

So if that's the case then why aren't natural methods for curing depression that popular? The answer is simple, because there are many large organizations that want you to believe that the only solution to your pain is to buy their products while in fact that's a big lie.

In this article i will tell you how to cure depression naturally.

How can depression be cured without medication?

In my previous article How to understand people with depression i explained how depression can be some kind of a protest done by your mind when it fails to fulfill one of the most important desires it has.

During our childhood we all develop desires (drives) as a result of the way we were raised and the situations we have been put through. Some people develop the desire to poses things, others develop the desire to become wealthy while a third group might develop the desire to show off. (see How to find happiness)

These desires shape most of our actions later on as we strive in order to fulfill them and if it happened that we failed to fulfill a very important desire we become depressed.

In my book, The ultimate guide to getting over depression i explained how natural treatment for depression is all about understanding these drives and working on them instead of using medication to suppress depression's symptoms.

The right way to cure depression

To treat depression naturally you have two options, either you should work on fulfilling this important desires if they were rational or either you should fix your beliefs about your irrational desires.

For example if as a result of traumatic financial insecurity that you have been through as a kid you developed the desire to become rich then you should work on becoming rich as this desire is a useful one but if you were raised in such a way that resulted in letting you want to show off at all costs and become always the center of attention then you should work on fixing your irrational ideas.

In summary to treat depression you should either fulfill the desire or work on fixing your beliefs so that you no longer need to fulfill that irrational desire anymore.

How to ease depression's symptoms

So many people mistakenly follow the advice that can ease the symptoms of depression as if they are the cure for depression and that's totally wrong. Yes there are some actions that can help you ease the symptoms of depression but those actions cannot help you on their own to end depression.

Now that you know this fact here is a list of the things that you can do to feel better:

  • Get sunlight: Studies have found that daily exposure to sunlight can help reduce the symptoms of depression
  • Get social support: Social support , especially intimate connections, can make all bad emotions seem less intense
  • Exercise: Exercising can force the release of many feel-good chemicals that can improve the mood and reduce depression
