    Depression/Anxiety

    This is my first time writing on this message board and hopefully this helps me out a little with everything that I’m dealing with right now. I’m 20, I’ve been dealing with my depression pretty much for as long as I can remember. My anxiety on the other hand, that’s a different story that I’m not going to get into. These last few months have really been hard for me mentally, internally I feel so heavy and weighed down by everything around me and it’s like I can’t even bring myself to stand up. Some days I feel everything all at once, and other days I’m just numb and I’m seeing the world go on without me, and it almost feels like I’m not even there. My mind is kinda just all over the place so I apologize if this makes no sense, I just need to get some release from my brain. I’ve always felt like I had no one to turn to when it came to telling people what was really going on, and how I was truly feeling. I have a lot of childhood issues that I’m carrying into my adult life and trying my best to figure out but it’s hard. It hurts when you think that you have that one and only person you can truly be yourself with, and just be raw with but then they turn around and just leave you hanging. I have had problems with self harm in the past, and I almost did it again but I didn’t and I guess I’m proud of myself for that. My brain just feels like it’s going to explode and I just want to feel like I can breathe again.

    RE: Depression/Anxiety

    Hello Myaalonaa,

    This is Sha,

    One of the things I learned in taking up naturopathy and relaxation therapy, is that the most powerful organ in the body is the BRAIN.

    Our BRAIN controls both body and mind functions. It's like a built in computer, that is designed to take care of us.

    We all respect your privacy, when you feel comfortable enough to share your fears, pain or trauma, we are here for you. We all can relate to your frustration(s)

    Until then Myaalonaa, let's try this alternative solution, for depression.

    Teas Mint, Peppermint, Chamomile your pick
    Spices Ginger, cinnamon your pick
    Supplements Siberian ginseng, Melatonin, Gingko Biloba, Valerian Roots, L-Theanine
    Suggestion: Tea in the day time with spice, and two of the supplements, and tea at night with the three remaining.

    Myaalonaa, please do not take all supplements at the same time, very powerful sedatives.

    What this does is to increase and release neurotransmitter(s) called serotonin and dopamine in the brain.

    Within two weeks expect to see mood changes - serene, calm, relax, and alert.

    Keep us posted.

    Sha
