Depression is often a symptom of an underlying problem.

Solving the underlying problem should be part of the treatment. Left untreated, depression can escalate to anxiety and even panic attacks.

Depression is often related to hormone imbalance and a condition called estrogen dominance. It often develops during puberty or during menopause. It may develop in men during the male equivalent of menopause. Various forms of birth control are hormone disruptors. The food we eat is grown with hormones, especially animals and animal products. Hormones cause them to grow big and fast, so it's economically advantageous for farmers to use lots of hormones. Beauty products are spiked with hormones and the manufacturers don't even have to tell you!


While counseling is very useful for coping skills, many people are hesitant to take the antidepressants prescribed by their counselors. They may be helpful for some. But they may not work at all for some people and sometimes even make the condition worse. There are extremely effective non-prescription supplements that can be used to treat depression and anxiety. And there are no side effects. Insomnia sometimes accompanies depression, worsening the problem. There are also non-prescription solutions for insomnia, whether you have trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep.

Treatment should include a complete health assessment of hormone related problems. If other symptoms are present, hormonal imbalance should be treated also. There is a natural alternative to drug therapy that really works! There are no side effects and it's not habit forming. So, if you suffer from depression, consider natural therapy.

Remember, NEVER stop using your prescription drugs without consulting the prescribing doctor.
