New evidence indicates that aerobic exercise eases depression almost as well as antidepressants medication does. After following 202 patients for 4 months researchers found that depression largely cleared up in 45% of patients exercising in groups, 40% in those exercising at home and 47% of those taking anti-depressants. In exercising to relieve depression one avoids the adverse effects often associated with anti-depressants while at the same time improving their physical health.
Many who have tried anti-depressant find that even though it might help with their depression it has the effect of muting their emotions. They are unable to feel the full joy and happiness that they once knew. Homeopathy and nutritional medicine can help restore a persons mental health to where they feel whole again.
