Natural Cures For Depression

Depression is a serious problem in the whole world. According to the AHRQ (Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality), in 2010, 16% of adults age 45-64 take at least one antidepressant. This is an increase of 91% since 2000. It looks like this problem is going to be even more serious. These numbers are even dramatic among women. 1 in 4 women (40-59) takes at least one antidepressant.
According to research from 30 years ago, depression is a chemical imbalance in our brain. Recent researches proved that depression is a combination of: genetic predisposition, certain medications, underlying medical issues, stressful life events and nerve cell and nerve circuitry issues. Today, depression is the most common mental issue in the world. Luckily, there are some ways (natural ways) that can help you.
1.    Mindfulness is probably the most important. The goal is to train your brain think differently. The best method for this is MBCT (mindfulness-based cognitive therapy). This therapy has similar effect as antidepressants.
2.    Physical activity (exercising or walking) is also very important. Several studies proved that exercises can help people with depression.
3.    Massage is the most pleasant cure for depression. One of the reasons for depression is chronic pain. A massage can solve this.
4.    Being exposed to the sun is also useful against depression. This can protect your brain function and ease depression. Don’t forget to use sun protection.
5.    Having a pet can help you. Scientists discovered that during hugging and touching, our body releases oxytocin, a hormone that is responsible for generosity and trust. Pet therapy should be the first option for all people who like pets.
