Depression- SAD seasonal affective disorder - Natural alternatives


Depression- SAD seasonal affective disorder - Natural alternatives

This page is for those people like myself who suffer from depression from time to time or all the time.
These are some of the things I found to help, feel free to add to this.
I am not a doctor if you are feeling very depressed then do go to your doctor.

Using at the moment Rhodiola Root capsules 300 mg im only taking one in the morning you can take two per day. A warning I originally went into health shop and asked for something to boost my serotonin levels (makes you happy)and the lady gave me 2000mg strength this was way to strong and made me irritable and tired. So get 300mg if you can or 500mg and see how you go with them.
I wouldn't recommend taking them with or anti depressants. You can google Rhodiola root benefits for more info.
I had Passiflora Complex (20 drops in water) in the press so I started using that again as well its mild.

I suggest just taking Rhodiola on its own to see how you go.

Also I think what I have is SADS it was sunny yesterday and warm so I just sat in a chair and took in the suns rays it was so good I felt much happier so if its sunny and you can get out I suggest doing it It creates vitamin D3 you can go into health shop or chemist and get a supplement for this or a spray. I haven't the money now but i am going to get that next week and try it.

I am also just trying to eat as healthy as possible. Fish veg whole wheat noodles fruit, but as a lot of the fresh foods can loose nutrients I Suggest supplements as I read in Patrick Holford low gl diet a good book which I also suggest checking out.

One other thing I suggest is exercise , I know this is the last thing you want to do when you are depressed but it does help and get outdoors in nature away from towns and city's to enjoy nature if you can.

Please feel free to comment or contradict anything I had said although I hope you wont as im only trying to share what I found what helps with my depression in the hope that I can help others.

Some links

Take care and be well :)

I have read recently that colloidal Silver is good for SAD aswel.

Its available now in good health food shops, and of course you can make your own. I will be posting an article soon about exactly how to make it, and how to make the particles as small as possible.

Getting enough Vitamin D in the winter months ....

D LUX Vitamin D oral spray can be bought in the Health food shop for under 10 euro.

Each spray contains 3000 IU of Vitamin D, over 1000% the recommended daily dose.

I'm taking 3 sprays under the tongue per day to give me over 4000%.

A few films here with lots of Sunshine in them. I know it sounds weird but seeing it on the screen can sometimes make you feel warmer.

And another sunny comedy TV series from California.

lack of magnesium? could be one factor

I get this occasionally over the winter, it is for sure vitamin related. It isn't a disorder by the way its a reaction to environmental change and it is more common than it gets reported.
