Depression affects many of us and requires careful treatment. While conventional medicine offers band-aid solutions, natural therapies can return balance to your entire body and mind.

Depression typically shows up with symptoms such as Low-mood, Fatigue, Loss of Interest, Loss of Libido and Weight Loss, Weight Gain and Withdrawal from Social Life, making effective Depression treatment vital. Your Naturopath can assess your lifestyle and connected systems to offer a treatment plan which can, naturally, lift you out of this haze. So often people fall into Depression due to lifestyle, traumatic life events or reasons unexplained. During these times of low mood, it is so important to maintain a healthy pattern of living.

Natural Depression Treatment

Useful medications such as SSRI’s and SNRI’s are overprescribed by a health system which has no other choice but to medicate patients.

A Naturopath can offer so much more than this band-aid solution. Unfortunately, it takes time, but with the correct advice and behavioural change, along with diet, supplements, exercise and alternative treatments, patients can be pulled out of a depressive episode without the use of psychotropic drugs.


Should you feel depressive symptoms it is important to consult a Naturopath to assess your life and try gentle, natural therapy before turning to psychiatric drugs. Your Naturopath will offer advice which may benefit you long-term.
