Natural Depression and Anxiety Treatments vs Traditional Medications

Depression and anxiety issues are difficult enough to deal with, without the added concern of side effects and costs that many find prohibitive. Natural depression and anxiety treatments however, have far fewer side effects and are much safer so it is believed.Herbal supplements though natural – doesn’t necessarily mean they are safer. Before considering using herbal supplements, it would be prudent to consult your physician as to what the best options for you would be. If you are already taking, there could be negative interactions between the supplements and the medications. Therein lays the possible danger.All that being said, natural treatments do work, they can be as beneficial if not more so than traditional medications, and the costs are not near as difficult to meet. Natural treatments include the use of herbs, botanicals, vitamins and other known nutritive substances. Taken either alone or in a supplement with other related nutrients, these treatments can be a true asset for sufferers.Natural treatments for depression and anxiety include herbs such as Chamomile known for its gentle relief of sleep problems. Dried Chamomile flower leaves are put in a cup and boiling water is poured over them to make a sweet tea. It is also known as a fever reducer and can boost metabolism and mood.Dandelion is used in salads and as tea. Its roots are often used as a coffee substitute. The B vitamins’ it contains supports the health of all internal systems. The leaves and roots of the Dandelion are used in supplements to treat liver, gall bladder, kidney, and joint problems. Because internal systems are working better, Dandelion may provide some relief of Depression and Anxiety problems.B vitamins such as Thiamine, Riboflavin, and Pyridoxine provide relief of memory and mental functioning ability, supports a healthy nervous system, eases symptoms of depression and one Biotin in particular tends to help stabilize blood sugar, which improves metabolism, and finally depressive issues.Omega 3/DHA Esters are found in fish oil and other foods as well. One of the purest and most effective sources of Omega 3 fatty acids is the Hoki fish found in the cold southern oceans of New Zealand. The oil comes from the body of the fish.With all of these supplements, herbs, and vitamins – in order to get the highest quality and most effective ones, they should be of pharmaceutical grade ingredients. To further ensure the purity and efficacy of supplements, the metabolic paths of each ingredient should have been evaluated at the molecular level and the interactions of the ingredients monitored.This entire process will as already stated ensure the purity of the supplements, but it will further let you know that what is said to be in the supplements is actually in the particular one you are taking.Since Depression and Anxiety are such difficult issues to deal with, I vote for anything that will benefit the sufferer and reduce or eliminate the serious side effects of traditional medications that are so feared. Natural treatments for Depression and Anxiety are one of many options available. The costs of natural treatments are also less prohibitive than prescription medications. Always check with your doctor before adding anything to your health regimen.
