Treatments for anxiety and depression come in many forms, including natural antidepressant alternatives, which offer alternative mental health choices opposed to prescription drugs. Depression can ultimately be cured through healing, changing lifestyle, receiving treatment, and correcting underlying issues. Through antidepressant alternatives treatment, people can get their lives back; no more antidepressant side effects, no more chemical agents, and no more depression. Alternative medicine and alternative to psychiatry approaches do not cover up depressive symptoms with drugs; alternative practitioners take their time in finding the right combination of therapies, changes in lifestyle and anything else each different person requires for optimal mental health. The alternative medicine approach focuses on each person uniquely, instead of prescribing the same drug to every depressed patient. Each person who uses medication alternatives practices their own unique set of tailored alternatives for their specific needs. Alternatives can be used in place of medications such as Prozac, Zoloft, Effexor and Paxil.  With scientific and complementary approaches, you can get off antidepressants and be healthy.

Exercise is one of the most rewarding and easiest practices to get into on a regular basis. Exercise is available in many different forms and is one of the antidepressant alternatives natural therapies. Exercising burns toxins outs of the body, allows good things to flow through the body, reduces stress, relieves stress, and builds confidence among many other positive things. Stress reduction and confidence building are two excellent steps toward effective Zoloft alternatives or other depression alternatives plan.

Acupuncture is an ancient therapy that has been used as an effective depression alternatives treatment, acupuncture increases blood flow and inner balance; among many other benefits. Many people’s depression could be attributed to deficiencies, imbalances and blocks within the body and mind. From the surface of the skin, acupuncture allows balance to flow, and blockages to be released within. When imbalances are balanced out and released, improvements are often shown in symptoms of depression. Acupuncture and exercise both boost endorphins, endorphins are the natural feel good chemicals in our bodies, therefore, acupuncture and exercise can have calming and relaxing effects. Acupuncture can relieve and release physical pain and emotional pain.

Nutrition, diet, minerals, vitamins, supplements and herbal medicine can all be crucial parts of an antidepressant alternative treatment plans. Food and/or nutritional deficiencies can significantly attribute to depression, food can be used as medicine; eating healthy and drinking lots of water can make all the difference. Adding things to your diet, like fresh fruit, vegetables, whole foods (whole cereal), protein, seeds and anything else that contains whole protein, can be helpful. Eliminating things from your diet and life, such as processed foods, fast food, caffeine, sugar, cigarettes, stimulants, artificial coloring, artificial flavoring and drugs or alcohol, can be helpful.

Most people who have been prescribed to an antidepressant were given these medications before there was any investigative effort put forth to identify what is causing their depression. Does the person have a low Serotonin level and that’s the only cause? What if they have a low functioning thyroid? What if they have accumulated environmental neurotoxins such as toxic heavy metals which damage energy metabolism? What if they have allergies to food whereby internal swelling causes metabolism to slow? Any of these things can be factors. Any of these factors could provide a direction for Celexa alternatives or other anti-depressant alternatives as once the cause of symptoms is identified and under control; the symptoms are under control too. The depressed individual’s diet may be so poorly lacking in nutrients that they are unable to create what is necessary for adequate brain health.

We may often forget that the same insults which our body would receive from a poor diet, our brains are subject to as well. Or maybe the individual is overwhelmed in a life that is unfulfilling and they need a better environment to make changes.

Lab testing, orthomolecular medicine, natural substances that stabilize the neurochemistry, cleansing and purification for dislodging of built up environmental neurotoxins, medication withdrawal tapering techniques, IV nutrient treatment and other nutritional treatments, support from peers, yoga, massage, exercise, personal training and healing therapies that are alternative to psychiatry to address depression and offer effective antidepressant alternative treatments.
