Natural Solutions for Depression:  Part I

Dr. Smith is concerned about the sharp rise in depression rates over recent years.  Each year, more and more children and adults experience depression, and many turn to antidepressant medications that are loaded with side effects.

What triggered the increased incidence?  Researchers theorize that everything from diet to stress to lack of exercise may play a crucial role.  Fortunately, a wealth of scientific evidence indicates that, for many individuals, simple lifestyle changes can go a long way in reducing symptoms.

While chiropractors do not treat depression, preliminary research demonstrates that chiropractic adjustments may ease depressive symptoms.  “It has been long speculated that chiropractic interventions may affect mental health problems,” note researchers.

Here are some natural alternatives to antidepressant medications:

  • Exercise
  • Avoid alcohol
  • Be wary of medication
  • Stimulate the mind
  • Reduce stress
  • Consider therapy
  • Lean on friends and family
  • Chiropractic adjustments
