The next 10 tips have the power to make anyone with depression feel awesome and enjoy life again. Depression is not a disease, it is a symptom of an imbalance of the body and spirit due to many factors that can be corrected with the habits, diet, and lifestyle. For example, the gut is the area that produces the highest amount of neurotransmitters, then, the brain. So many people have gut issues and nothing mental and no medicament can cure it.
What is depression ?
Depression is a life-threatening mood disorder manifested as a combination of cognitive and physical symptoms that leads to decreased interest in daily life activities. Depression is reported as the largest health concern in the 21st century. About 350 million people are currently suffering from depression. The prevalence of depression has increased dramatically at a global level and one million people with depression commit suicide yearly.
Which are the symptoms of depression ?
Depressive symptoms include feelings of guilt, sadness, worthlessness and desperation, inability to experience pleasure, changes in appetite and sleep patterns, lack of energy, poor concentration and memory, motor retardation, fatigue, and recurrent suicidal and death ideation which are experienced for more than 2 weeks.
In USA it is one of the health conditions with the highest economic burden with an annual economic loss of around USD 210 billion.
There are two types of depression, the appropriate one which is the result of losing something or a loved one which is natural to feel, and the inappropriate depression, where there are no apparent reasons to feel this way that sometimes is confused for lack of quality sleep or adrenal fatigue which are conditions that generate the similar state of depression.
And the following tips gonna improve mostly the inappropriate depression, but, you can greatly ameliorate the first condition by meditating and by having sessions with a coach that helps you to keep your mind away from the past and keep your thoughts mostly in a daily vision of your future. And we can work together on that purpose by booking a session here.
Which are the main causes of depression ?
There are 6 main reasons why someone might feel depressed and they are the lack of some nutrients, unhealthy gut, unbalanced hormones, spending time in polluted environments, lack of exercise, and having a dark spirit, which is the invisible and largest part of your body.
That is why many doctors cannot help, they simply ignore that the human body has an invisible part that is much larger than its physical area and it is important to keep it healthy as well and by balancing this area sick people even with terminal cancer have had spontaneous and miraculous healings, like this one exposed on the video below...
What's the difference between depression and anxiety ?
Depression is like apathy, a feeling of hopelessness, a type of deep sadness, you no longer care about anything this is depression and anxiety is stress, worry, overthinking, panic attacks, completely different emotions. Often depression is because of vitamin B3 deficiency and anxiety from lack of vitamin B1. When a person eats a lot of junk food is natural to feel horrible and cannot be fixed with any medication simply by improving the lifestyle and diet.
Depression could be a symptom of having a dark spirit, the field of light around each person. When this area of the body is unhealthy we naturally feel low emotions like sadness and hopelessness. On the other hand, when it is robust and shiny we feel happy, we are positive and energetic. We were born with a bright spirit, that's why children are usually vibrant and vigorous, in fact, sometimes they have too much energy that they scream often.
If the spirit is healthy, we feel good, even if the weather is horrible for others because part of the spirit is the emotional body and when it is strong and bright, we naturally feel happiness and grace. There are a few persons that can see this part of the body as Barbara Brennan and many others, and most people are depressed due to an unhealthy spirit.
The following advice is designed for balancing the whole body, physical and spirit. What going to bring joy in the life of anyone depressed. On these 10 wonderful tips, I am focusing on the root of the problem and they were thought holistically with only natural remedies.
10 ways to overcome depression naturally
1 - Consume these essential nutrients
1 - Consume these essential nutrients
There is a connection between depression, fatigue, and anxiety with the lack of the next vitamins and minerals that going to improve your condition by consuming them daily. If it doesn´t happen is because you need to fix your gut issues by following the second advice.
Vitamin B1, B6, and B12 deficiency lead to depression, fatigue, low energy and induces a state where the person lacks motivation. Very often the lack of those nutrients is because of insulin resistance, excess consumption of processed sugars, carbohydrates, alcohol, and cigarettes. If you have those habits you need to consume much more vitamin B or if you are diabetic or if you are consuming metformin.
I recommend consuming these vitamins through the diet or only plant-based supplements like this Vitamin B-complex, because they are better assimilated by the organism. But it is best that you consume them through the diet and the vegan-friendly foods that contain them are pistachios, peanuts, brazil nuts, sunflower seeds, spinach, sweet potato, nutritional yeast, cabbage, oranges, Brussel sprouts, oatmeal, asparagus, pecans, and green peas.
Chromium is a mineral that humans require in trace amounts. It's found in small quantities in grains, some fruits and vegetables, and spices. Chromium might help to reduce depression by inducing and enhancing the release of mood-regulating neurotransmitters, this effect is similar to that seen in people who've used antidepressants for a long time.
Vegan sources of Chromium are Tomatoes, Broccoli, Black pepper, peaches, mushrooms, onions, peppers, spinach, and lettuce. You can consume it in supplementation as well which especially beneficial for those with diabetes, insulin resistance, or carbohydrate cravings conditions that lead to depression but better than Chromium is having a ketogenic diet.
This is the most abundant trace minerals in the brain, it supports several physiological functions and possesses immuno-modulation properties. There appears to be a correlation between zinc dysregulation in both neurological and psychiatric illnesses such as Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Down Syndrome, attention deficit disorder hyperactivity, and depression.
The lack of this mineral could lead to depression and many common medications promote its insufficiency including antacids, diuretics, anticonvulsants, antiretrovirals, hormones, steroids, other anti-inflammatories, and numerous cardiovascular medications. This is why I never recommend any type of medication because exist a natural remedy for every health condition without negative side effects and they empower other areas of the body.
Many people are depressed due to the food they consume, or because of the medicines this is why I recommend you to keep reading this blog where I am sharing only natural remedies and vegan-friendly supplementation, so subscribe to my newsletter to be updated to the information I publish here often and if you want me to like your coach you can book a session with me here. My specialty is anti-aging but also nutrition, weight loss, and spirituality.
The food that contains Zinc are spinach, mushroom, nuts, pumpkin seeds, dark chocolate, garlic, chickpeas, avocados, prunes, bananas almonds, oatmeal and the recommended dose is not so high, you only need 10 mg minimum. It is not like potassium which you need a very high dose every day, which is 4 grams and there is not supplementation with potassium. For example, one banana contains only 400 mg of potassium and it is a very important element.
It is one of the most important minerals your body needs daily because it is an electrolyte as well. Which are chemicals that help conduct electric current in the body and the cells can feel fatigated without enough potassium and the daily dose is 4700 milligrams which is a lot of fruits and vegetables that most people do not consume. So it is easy to understand why there are a lot of people depressed and it is horrible to see them consuming drugs that doctors give them to solve their symptoms produced by their low nutritional diet.
Lack of potassium has been linked to mood changes and mental fatigue. Low blood potassium levels may disrupt the signals that help maintain optimal brain function. This mineral is critical to the proper functioning of heart muscle cells. Potassium deficiency is a dangerous condition that can even cause death and it is called Hypokalemia.
A very low potassium level can be life-threatening and requires urgent medical attention.
Your body is electric, it operates with electricity especially the heart and as a result of Hypokalemia a person can suffer a Cardiac arrest, which is a sudden loss of blood flow resulting from the failure of the heart to pump effectively. But if you eat your veggies nothing of this will happen to you, lamentably most of the electrolytes and supplements on the market only contain a maximum of 4% of the daily dose need it, which is almost nothing.
I found this supplement with 1000 mg but still is only 20% of what you need to consume every day so it is better that you consume the food that contains a lot of this mineral which are potatoes, avocados, Watermelon, prunes, spinach, bananas, mushrooms, tomatoes, pomegranate, orange, apricots, raisins, pistachios, broccoli, and sweet potato. And avoid processed sugars, alcohol, medicaments, and stress because deplete potassium in the body.
Omega-3s can easily travel through the brain cell membrane and interact with mood-related molecules inside the brain. They also have anti-inflammatory actions that may help relieve depression according to this article published by Harvard Medical school.
Especially DHA Docosahexaenoic acid, a type of omega-3 fat is beneficial for improving your mood and it is available in certain algae or natural supplementation like these products vegan friendly that I found on eBay. So, remember that low Omega 3 can cause depression.
Taking Magnesium supplementation could be effective for the treatment of major depression. If you are deficient in magnesium you can get anxiety, depression, irritability, sleep difficulty and brain fog. Magnesium has a direct effect on the production of serotonin the hormone that brings you in a state of well-being, it makes you feel calm, happy and without stress.
Magnesium has a positive effect on neurotransmitters which are like hormones that instead of traveling through the blood they travel through the nervous system and magnesium deficiency is extremely common, around 50% of the population is deficient. It is very difficult to test magnesium since only 1 percent of your whole body´s magnesium is in the blood.
Magnesium decreases Cortisol which is the stress hormone that many people have in elevated quantities and taking magnesium supplementation can help them. It lowers adrenalin as well, increases GABA a neurotransmitter involve in relaxation and calmness. And it can increase melatonin as well, why is recommended to people with insomnia.
2 - Keep your gut healthy
As I described in the intro, is the gut the main producer of neurotransmitters and some bacteria living in the gut help to make this process possible. So let´s talk about tips to maintain them abundant which is important for producing important neurotransmitters that make us feel good as Gaba or seratonine and for having a healthy digestive system that allows you to absorb the nutrients you need to feel great like magnesium, or vitamin B.
Lactobacillus Bifidobacterium is a bacteria living in the gut helping to produce Dopamine, Gaba, and Serotonin which are the neurotransmitters that make you feel great naturally. Your depression could be a result of a lack of them, so I recommend you to take this supplement that contains them and other probiotics as "Raw" Apple Cider Vinegar with the Mother.
If your children are depressed give them Apple Cider Vinegar with the mother on gummies, that will improve the absorption of vitamins and minerals from the food and try that they do not consume sweets, microwave foods, or snacks because they deteriorate the digestive system and cause insulin resistance what leads to depression. Gives them chocolate with more than 70% of cacao, goji berries, and almonds like snacks which are delicious.
What kills bacteria in the digestive system ?
Medicaments, pesticides, the fluor, and chlorine included in the water most people drink is lethal for healthy bacteria your body needs. Using antiseptic mouthwash kills bacteria in the mouth that are extremely very important for the production of Nitric Oxide, a molecule produced naturally by your body, essential for many aspects of your health.
So basically it is ignorance that maintains people unhealthy, depressed and this is why it is important that you keep reading this blog. So, subscribe to my newsletter because it could be dangerous keeping a distance from all the valuable information shared here. So, it is better to consume only natural remedies that have only positive side effects like this painkiller called Curamin, which you can use to stop pain or but as well as a dietary supplement from herbs which has great benefits for overall health from Turmeric and Boswellia extracts.
GMOs and pesticides kill the gut bacteria and promote horrible chaos on the gut, then avoid products that contain corn syrup and soja which are even included in the ingredients of baby food, take this serious, your health is only your responsibility. And buy only organic food and support farmers from your community. The pesticides are degrading the soil, destroying the environment and those chemicals arrive at the water you and your family drink.
The water most people drink is very low quality and fluor or chlorine that kills very important bacteria need it for digestion and the production of neurotransmitters that supports a positive mood. This is why I recommend avoiding to consume water in plastic bottles if they contain Chlorine and Fluor. And check this article to have an idea of how to prepare high-quality water to drink for you and your family which is much more beneficial.
3 - Meditate every day
It is my promise that if you meditate every day for 30 minutes you going to be very soon the happiest person you know ! When you meditate the pulses of your brain and heart become very organize what promotes a very positive state of wellbeing. It is through the brain and heart coherence that miraculous healings are done at the seminars of Joe Dispenza.
Meditation is strategic to maintain the spirit huge and shiny. When you stop thinking your body begins to absorb the light of the cosmos which is around you and it is stored on your body and by years of practice your spirit becomes big and shiny, what many people call enlightenment. In this state, there is not suffering because this inner light makes you feel awesome but on the physical body what happens is that it is generated oxytocin often.
The best time for meditating is after waking up to make your whole day something special and if you never meditate before you make your first steps with the guide of this free trial called Flagship Meditation Training. Which is a video training that contains two powerful mindfulness techniques that you can learn to practice later on your own.
However, exists other ways to cultivate energy in the spirit which are practicing Yoga, Tai-chi, or Qigong but as well with the act of procreation. Which is a powerful method to store a lot of light in the spirit throw the sexual act between a man and woman. It is one of the most important meditations for the people that know them because of its great benefits.
When a couple is conceiving a baby, they generate a lot of energy that will be transmitted to the newborn. During the intercourse, large amounts of light are produced that could be stored in the couple by avoiding the male orgasm. Otherwise, the spirit of both are depleted of light and they going to have a dark spirit during the next 3 days approximately. I am talking more about it in the book I wrote titled The Most powerful Meditation.
4 - Clean electromagnetic pollution
There are thousands of studies that associate electromagnetic pollution with conditions like ADHD, depression, irritability, fatigue, and difficulty to sleep, which leads to a lack of motivation. This study suggests that long-term occupational exposure to ELF-EMF may lead to depression, stress, anxiety, and poor sleep quality.
If you are sleeping in a small bedroom your body can remain inside magnetic fields that can interact negatively with your emotions. It is electricity that scapes from cables because is not at the same speed but you can compress it by installing this box next to the breaker panel. After that, most of the electricity will arrive at the destiny and there will be more wasted energy around producing those unhealthy fields. What makes reduce the electricity bill too.
Electromagnetic pollution contaminates the Chi energy. This energy becomes rigid in contact with electromagnetic fields and as result, the flow is reduced what produces an unhealthy atmosphere that causes fatigue, negativity, low emotions, and depression. This ambiance makes a night of restful sleep difficult but it can be cleaned very fast with a Chi generator saturating the environment with abundant life energy in movement and harmonious vibration.
With this device, you can maintain a healthy energetic environment in your bedroom, which is a strategic place because you spend long hours there during the sleep. It also produces a positive vibration that facilitates deep sleeping. But as well introducing some plants there will maintain a healthy energetic environment positive for your mood and feelings.
5 - Balance your hormones
Low estrogens can lead to depression, low testosterone, and abundant cortisol as well. All they are hormones that you can balance by using adaptogenic herbs. Any changes in hormone states including menopause, childbirth, thyroid problems, or other disorders could cause depression. Even low cholesterol, which is the precursor of the five major classes of steroid hormones. So if you are vegan keeping your diet high in HDL cholesterol is important.
Consuming cruciferous vegetables is strategic for balancing hormones like estrogens which are often imbalanced because of the consumption of products on plastics like beverages because the plastics contain xenoestrogens that arrive at the drink and then to your body. And they are substances that your body confuses with estrogens due to the similarity, which imbalances everything including your emotions.
Diindolylmethane balances estrogens and it is produced by consuming cruciferous vegetables, which also available in supplements like all these products from eBay, but trust me everyone should eat every day cruciferous vegetables because they are strategic for everything. For increasing the health span, detoxifying the body, and balancing hormones. They also promote the body's production of Catalyze and other very beneficial enzymes.
Now let´s talk about two Adaptogenic herbs that can help you to combat fatigue, enhance mental performance, ease depression and anxiety. The best ones are Ashwagandha and Rhodiola Rosea. They balance pretty improve low emotions due to unbalanced hormones quite well but if you do not feel better after consuming them take probiotics as well and meditate and consume a lot of green food, chocolates with 80% cacao, and avocados.
If you are a man, this is the adaptogenic I recommend you to take but if you can afford both take Rhodiola as well. I just want to let you know that taking Ashwagandha supplementation increases testosterone pretty well which reduction can lead to fatigue, low emotions, negativity, and depression. In one controlled 60-day study in 64 stressed adults, those who took 600 mg of high-concentration ashwagandha extract per day reported a 79% reduction in severe depression, while the placebo group reported a 10% increase.
Ashwagandha and Rhodiola are antidepressants included on this list with 10 natural remedies for depression that I invite you to read if you want to know more about these 2 adaptogenic herbs that greatly improve mental conditions related with low emotions.
Rhodiola supplementation can be used to reduce stress, combat fatigue, increase mental performance and improve physical and mental fitness and resilience. It is a promising treatment for a number of mental health conditions, including stress, neuroprotection and mild to moderate depression. Clinical evidence shows that moderate doses of Rhodiola can be helpful in persons with bipolar disorder, chronic fatigue syndrome, and fibromyalgia syndrome. It is also a useful adjunctive treatment in attention deficit disorder (ADHD).
But do not mix medicaments with these herbs, the best is to only consume natural remedies which normally enhance other areas of your health instead of causing negative side effects. Like many medicines which lead to depression as a side effect and most of the medicaments damage the liver and kill healthy bacteria that your body needs for feeling great.
6 - Take the sunlight or vitamin D
The sun is very important for any person and the lack of it causes depression because our spirit is nourished by sunlight. That is why some people consider bad weather a cloudy day while people who meditate often are not influenced in the mood for lack of sunlight. it is important that you understand this because is not only necessary the light of the sun for vitamin D production that can lead you to feel better when you do not receive the sunlight.
Vitamin D is more than just one vitamin. It’s a family of nutrients that shares similarities in chemical structure. It is available in two forms: vitamin D2 and vitamin D3, and the main difference is just the source. Vitamin D2 is manufactured from plants and fungi, and vitamin D3 from animal products and it is more similar to the one created naturally by the body through sunlight exposure.
One of the most significant benefits of vitamin D3 though is its impact on mood. Increasing levels of vitamin D could effectively help to reduce the symptoms of clinical depression. Other treatments may be needed as well, but first ensuring proper absorption of the vitamin is critical. Vitamin D2 supplements might be of lower quality than vitamin D3 supplements.
If you receive a reduced amount of sunlight every day your depression can be a result of lack of vitamin D and taking supplementation can be a method you can use to see if your mood is improved. Here is a few supplements vegan friendly I found on eBay. If you are not vegan it is better to consume vitamin D3 however on this blog only vegan products are shown.
7 - Practice aerobic sports frequently
Depression can be produced by a lack of movement and exercise. Regular exercise boosts your mood if you have depression, and it's especially useful for people with mild to moderate depression. When I was feeling depressed I read a book title the 10 secrets for abundant happiness and one of these tips was practicing sports. After I read about it I knew this is the one I need to apply and I did it with great results.
As I wrote before we have an invisible area of the body and operate with energies and electricity. When you breathe is introduced life energy in your organism, then by breathing fast because the exercise you introduce a lot of Life force what generates vitality, energetic and positive while the lack of this energy makes you feel low, and demotivated.
If you do not have too much time, working out at home is a good option to maintain the movement you need to feel good and maintain healthy. Sometimes we do not have an idea bout the best exercises we can do in our bedrooms or other areas of the home but there are cool programs like Workout Anywhere® with instructors leading you. It was designed for helping busy parents live healthier lifestyles anywhere.
If you are depressed by combining exercise with the right diet, Rhodiola Rosea in extract and probiotics to maintain your gut with the bacteria that produce neurotransmitters you going to feel great soon. Also if you meditate, spend your time on nature, and make new friends or goals to accomplish like something that pushes you to learn something new every day.
8 - Use these essential oils
A recent increase in the popularity of alternative medicine and natural products has renewed interest in essential oils as potential natural remedies for depression. But keep in mind that the cause of depression may not be linked to one single source, however essential oils are great for boosting your mood. This is because the scent of the essential oil can be carried directly to the limbic system of the brain what influences your mood positively.
What is aromatherapy ?
Aromatherapy is the practice of using essential oils to treat illnesses or promote relaxation. Essential oils are taken from parts of the plants like the flowers, the stalk, the bark, the roots, and these oils could be sprayed in the air, inhaled, or introduced into a diffuser without mixing it with any other oil and then spread in the room to maintain an aroma that improves wellbeing, the emotions, promote balance and relaxation.
Vaporizing the next essential oils has a positive impact on improving mood, use a humidifier like this one and diffuse the oil in your bedroom. Some oils like Lavender, other floral and Frankincense are recommended to smell at night before sleeping and citrus as orange and Bergamont in the morning, which energize and maintain you active.
What essential oils are good for depression ?
Rosemary, geranium, vanilla, and most floral oils, in general, are beneficial for improving mood, libido, and motivation. Citrus fruits such as bergamot and orange have aromas that are emotionally uplifting, just opening the bottles and smelling them gives optimal results, but a diffuser is recommended. Frankincense and lavender are two essential oils that make you feel more centered in case depression is caused by many things that happen in life.
Lavender essential oil
Lavender has a long history of medicinal use and is suggested to possess anticonvulsant, antidepressive, anxiolytic, sedative, and calming properties. Several animal and human investigations suggest mood stabilizer, sedative, analgesic, and neuroprotective properties for lavender. These studies raised the possibility of revival of lavender therapeutic efficacy in neurological disorders.
An investigation on the effect of lavender aromatherapy (diluted to 2% concentration) on anxiety and depression in the high-risk postpartum woman showed a significant improvement of the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale and Generalized Anxiety Disorder Scale after four consecutive weeks of administration of lavender
It might be a great help for improving your mood diffuse Lavender essential oil in your bedroom before sleeping. Another great oil for improving the mood is Frankincense that I recommend you to diffuse at night as well before sleeping. If a member of your family is depressed these essential oils may help but keep in mind that the diet is the most important.
According to research, Ylang ylang essential oil can relieve depression in humans and is, therefore, often used in aromatherapy. The essential oil of ylang-ylang is extracted by steam distillation of fresh flowers of the ylang-ylang tree. Because the inhalation of ylang-ylang had a sedative effect, it is best to diffuse it in the bedroom before sleep and for having a very good night of sleep helps a lot a Life energy generator maintaining the frequency 3.5Hz
Inhaling Ylang-ylang help to reduce depression, frustration, fear, anxiety, sadness, and chronic stress. It has an uplifting effect on the mood that induces feelings of joy and hope. Ylang ylang’s beneficial effect on mood has been duplicated in other studies, and is also substantiated via anecdotal evidence. It may be an effective treatment for those undergoing nervous breakdowns and acute depression after a shock or an accident.
Inhaling Bergamot oil creates the feeling of joy, freshness, and energy by improving the circulation of your blood. It is well known for being both uplifting and calming. It is used in aromatherapy to significantly reduce anxiety in patients awaiting outpatient surgery.
Bergamot essential oil possesses sedation and anxiolytic properties similar to diazepam. After long period of exposure to stressors, including restrained stress, depressive-like behavior can be produced. BEO has been suggested to reduce depression. It may help reduce the release of stress hormones during stressful situations.
9 - Do new activities
It is natural to feel unmotivated by doing the same activities over and over again, there is not expansion or progress in life, what promotes shrinking and death. When you learn something new you expand yourself, you understand better and you transform yourself, a process that produces happiness. Different moments generate excitement that uplifts the emotions.
Making new friends could be a great option, exploring new places and even trying new foods. It is the ego that normally tries to maintain us safe, in the known while our real self wants adventures, great moments, we secretly know that we are the stars of the stories of our lives and when the story turns boring is natural to feel depressed as a signal from a new change, it is a type of appetite for something new to happen.
Our soul wants to explore every corner of this wonderful world, having a lot of adventures, and help a lot of people, improving their lives and happiness. This why creating a project could be something that can motivate you and feel excited every day. The root of the negative state can be something more like sadness from the soul that feels cornered by the ego, the animal part that keeps us safe while your soul asks for adventures a great story.
Create a project you love !
Our soul aspires to care about others, it is our nature as humans and you can make money as well by creating a project that assists people by doing what you love to do. It is important to follow your heart by doing what makes you happy. If you do not follow your heart you going to be sad until you do it. If your job for example makes you sad is because this is not the person you want to be and then you need to make goals, and strategies to accomplish them.
People do not follow their hearts because of their minds, in the mind are a lot of fears from society, family, and friends. By meditating every day the fears are greatly reduced and one is filled with courage, energy, and wisdom. You can also create a new pattern of thoughts that focus on your future to leave no space for those thoughts that made you suffer.
This is how I help people with the coaching sessions that you can book here. We talk about their future to set goals and strategies to accomplish them. But just by writing them and talking with someone about them produces the clarity that shows the path to walk each day that keeps a purpose to continue living. A life without purpose demotivate.
10 - Drink often teas for depression
There are many delicious teas that help improve the mood by providing nutrients that the brain needs for its healthy chemistry. The lack of those causes imbalance that affects how you feel. And below I going to talk about my top 3 teas for improving depression. Incorporating them into the diet could be a good help to improve a low mood or sadness.
On the other hand drinking sodas, and energy drinks often lead to depression, take distance of those beverages which are quite unhealthy. While teas promote good health, for example, Jiaougulan helps to extend the healthspan while the sugar in sodas shortens life. Jiaogulan is an elixir that promotes a good mood as well as Cistanche and Mugwort.
Drinking Cistanche tea improves the feeling of sadness because this herb holds potential compounds that can be used for alternative therapy for depression when is heated in water for around 2 hours what is called decoction. Wich is a method for nutrients extraction in water, something similar to the preparation of herbal extracts. In a recent 2017 study on mice, Cistanche was used for combating depression symptoms.
Modulation of the monoamine system and HPA axis both contributes to the antidepressant effect of herb Cistanche. Some of the chemical constituents of Cistanche called echinacoside are capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier freely and acting positively upon the central nervous system, which may explain why this herb possesses an antidepressant function.
As I described before it is the gut the first producer of neurotransmitters and many people have not mental problems they just need more bacteria on the gut and Cistanche it is a herb that helps this bacteria to produce those neurotransmitters that improve your mood. Pharmacological analysis has shown that Cistanches Herba exhibits a broad range of neuroprotective, immunomodulatory, anti-inflammatory, and hepatoprotective activities.
It also helps to control Ruminococcus which is a bacteria that showed a significant negative correlation with 5-HT concentration in the hippocampus. The increment of Ruminococcus has shown a connection with the decrement in 5-HT concentrations. After treatment with Cistanche, the relative abundance of Ruminococcus was reduced to the level of the control group, and the serotonin(5-HT) levels were found to have improved.
Japanese studies have shown that Jiaogulan is clinically useful in a number of mental and neurological conditions, including simple depression, anxiety, and schizophrenia. Drinking Jiaogulan tea has a double-direction, regulating, the adaptogenic influence of the central nervous system. It calms one when is overexcited and stimulating when one is depressed.
It generally reinforces general health and it has a strong anti-fatigue effect what improves mood quite well. it will help deal with serious cases of stress and anxiety but if you are feeling a little edgy, it might just bring a smile to your face. It is used throughout the Orient as a virtual "cure-all." It can provide you with the energy you need throughout the day.
Mugwort tea is very good for treating anxiety, depression and chronic stress levels. Its powerful nervine qualities, can help relieve stress on your nervous and metabolic system, and improve your quality of life if anxiety is something you experience on a daily basis. Drinking Mugwort tea is highly recommended for people suffering from insomnia, painful menstruations, digestive issues, obesity, weak immunity, diabetes, depression, inflammation, colds, coughs, flu, respiratory infections, and kidney problems.
St John’s Wort has been used to treat depression for centuries. It is thought to increase levels of the neurotransmitters serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine, improving mood — possibly by reducing the body’s production of cortisol, a hormone associated with stress. This herb is available in supplements as well and is also commonly called St. John's plant.
