Depression (Home Remedies)


There are many times in the course of life that you may feel overwhelmed and distraught. If you didn’t feel like singing the blues now and again you wouldn’t be human. It’s actually very healthy to get down from time to time. It’s when that down-in-the-dumps feeling begins to stick around longer than a couple of weeks that you might be suffering from a more serious condition, such as clinical depression. Here are a few of the effective home remedies for eliminating depression.

  • Boil seeds of 2 cardamoms in 1 cup of water with tea (avoid black tea). Add honey for taste and drink it twice a day.
  • Blanch 5-7 rosemary leavesin 1 cup boiling of water, add honey, wait 3 minutes and drink.
  •  Boil a few rose petals in 1cup of water. Add honey for taste. Drink occasionally in place of your usual tea or coffee.
  • Add to 1 cup boiling water 1/4 teaspoon Indian basil (tulsi) and 1/2 teaspoon of sage. Drink twice a day.
  •  Make a tea with 1/2 teaspoon each of ashvagandha and brahmi in 1 cup boiling water. Let steep for 10 minutes. Drink 2 or 3 times a day.
  •  Eat an apple with milk and honey. It will recharge your energy, uplifting your mood.
  • Cook 3-4 tablespoons of oatmeal to 1 cup of rice milk or soy milk, boil and stir for 1 minute on low temperature. Add honey, maple syrup, fresh or dried fruits, nuts, and almonds.
  •  Eat cashew nuts. A rich source of the B vitamin group that is extremely beneficial in treating depression. It stimulates the appetite, energy levels and promotes activeness.
  •  Aromatherapy. Helps the body to relax and revive the nervous system. Inhalation of some herbal oils like rose, jasmine, lime, and grapefruit are considered a natural remedy for depression. Flowers that smell good also help with eliminating depression.
  •  Relaxation is one effective measure in treating depression. Take daily walks. Fresh air and deep breathing exercises help in relaxation.
