A Depression Recovery Lifestyle
Considering Alternative Treatments
You might be thinking about trying alternative medicines or therapies. However, you should check with your health care provider before trying any herbs or supplements. There is no firm evidence that any alternative medicines work as well for depression as prescription medicines do. Some can cause serious side effects or interact with other drugs. Just because something is natural doesn't mean it's safe.
But some other alternative therapies, while unproven, are widely considered safe. You might try relaxation techniques, meditation, hypnosis, massage, or acupuncture.
