I hate medication. I will suffer for hours with a headache before I’ll take anything for it. This is because I have this irrational fear that OTC (over the counter) drugs are gateway drugs and that once you start with those then it is only a matter of time before your doctor has you addicted to the legal stuff.
Ignoring that particular peculiarity, I feel that the human body was designed to heal itself. All we need to do is give it the right tools in order to do the job. Therefore I have compiled a list of things that I have done and others recommend doing to help alleviate depression.
(Note: I’m not a doctor or even associated with the medical profession. Depending on your health status, some of these may require approval by your doctor in order to do them. Use your head and consult one if necessary.)
