Natural remedy for depression

alohalaniSeptember 3, 2006

It has been 2 months since my brother passed away unexpectedly of a heart attact at the age of 48.

I have gone through ok days & days full of grief.I just can't seem to get myself motivated to do much. Just the basics to take care of my own family & my mom.

I have a good friend & neighbor who suggested a homeopathic remedy for the sypmtoms of "situational depression" that I have been having. The remedy is called IGNATIA. We have ordered it & will let everyone if it works. In the meantime, look it up on the net.

I have been taking the occasional Tylenol PM to help me sleep, but don't want to take anything that I could become addicted to.

Take care everyone.

I've never tried ignatia, but I've had good results with homeopathy in general for a long time. Best of luck trying this. At least homeopathic remedies do no harm.

Try walking. I was deeply depressed and was in counseling and absolutely no energy.
The couselor advised me to walk about 30 minutes a day, doesn't have to be fast, just get outdoors and walk, or in the mall.
It does work.
God bless us all,

Get your blood pumping, your pulse to quicken.

That oxygenates the blood going to the brain, making the synapses fire more efficiently, elevating mood & helping depression.

Walk, dance, bicycle, work in the garden.

If you need to have a commitment to get yourself moving, sign up to take a class or to help with a class:

jazzercise helped me 20 years ago (don't know what they have now), but I *signed up for the class*, & I went every time.

& a friend of mine sometimes moans & groans & bellyaches about being tired, but she shows up every time to teach ballet to the little girls class at a recreation center.
