Depression is a chemical imbalance of the brain. I haven't found any natural substances, such as St John's Wort that are strong enough or have the correct type of chemicals to replace seratonin, and non medical methods absolutely do not work. Telling a depressive to "learn how to calm down" or "snap out of it", or "you can change if you want to" is insensative at best and ignorant and callous at worst. My mother is a diabetic and I'd never dream of telling her she could meditate and get over it. So why would you want to tell me to try an alternative method to cure myself of depression. Believe me, before I finally admitted to myself that I had a serous illness, I tried!! Prayer,meditation,sense deprivation,staring at candles,humming,exercise,--nothing worked. This is not an emotional problem, it's a biological problem. Increase your knowledge and you might learn something.
