Health Conditions | Depression

Although most adults and children feel “blue” from time to time, depression can sometimes stop a person from living a normal life. Fortunately, depression is a treatable illness. Natural health practitioners find that optimizing basic health factors such as sleep, diet and exercise can often minimize the tendency towards depression.

Naturopathic approaches such as biofeedback, talk therapies, energetic medicines, changes in lifestyle, and specific nutritive and herbal medicines, as well as acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can often provide symptom relief without the use of antidepressant medications.
