I know so many people who deal with depression and/or anxiety. Some who take prescribed medication, some who self medicate, and some who just try and deal. I personally have been in all of those categories at one time or another and I guess I fall into the second category now, although my medicine is my supplements. And before I go into what I have found that works for me let me state that I am not a doctor and I do not pretend to know what is best for other people. I just want to share some information that could prove useful.
I have been on a health journey over the past five years and have come across three main herbs and one mineral that seems to do the trick for keeping me stable. Two I found recommended through the Internet and two through my naturopath. I will list them in order of discovery and then I will take some time to delve into each ones benefits in nice short posts over the next few days, thus fulfilling a few days of writing every day. Yay!
- Tulsi (also known as Holy Basil)
- Rhodiola Rosea
Now these are not all the supplements I take, and I also use light therapy on occasion, but to me these are the major breakthroughs for my own sanity. So, tomorrow I will share about Tulsi. Until then, goodnight. 💤🌙
