I use several holistic depression therapy techniques that are effective on my patients.
Besides the more common ones used in my clinic, there's other treatments based on home remedies and folk medicine that are very inexpensive and simple.
Warning: Don't be fooled by their simplicity...
...our upbringing in the world of chemicals, drugs and surgery has most of us believing a remedy must be complex to be effective. Nothing could be further from the truth.
O.K., here's some holistic depression therapy secrets not commonly known, but effective for many people.
Tap your soles with a hairbrush for about 5 minutes. Concentrate mostly on the place just below the ball of your feet in the center, 1/3 of the way from your toes to your heel.
You could use your fingers if a wooden comb's not available. With moderate pressure...
Brush from the centerline of your scalp out to both sides, and...
Brush from your forehead to the back of your hairline.
Depression is said to be energy ("Qi") that's stuck in the chest. Certain exercises that help circulation in your chest can be as effective as drugs (with no side-effects).
These includes exercises like:
Pull on your ears in different directions with your index finger and thumb. Do this in all areas of your ear.
Breath slowly and deeply while doing this.
This is an excellent therapy, not only for depression, but many other health problems as well.
This might sound like "new-age" holistic depression therapy, but it can really be helpful.
Stand in front of a mirror and smile at yourself for one minute. Do this twice a day.
This works because your subconscious doesn't know the difference between what's happening and what you "believe" is happening.
can actually "trick" your body into believing you're happy, causing it
to respond with the appropriate "feel good" chemicals in your brain.
I'll be sharing with you my knowledge of ancient and modern health secrets that are virtually unknown to most people, even health professionals.
It’s all designed to help keep you and your family healthy.
