If you have problems with depression, anxiety, feeling down and stressed out there are several things that might help you. Natural medicine has a lot to offer and is well proven. The Gut-Brain Connection, the gut-brain-axis should also be taken into account. As a Christian my best advice is to give your life to Jesus Christ.

Help on the way
This page focuses mostly on how to counteract and cure depression, anxiety and stress with dietary supplements. This may not be able to fix everything because the mental and spiritual aspects of depression is often very large. Good natural supplements such as Tryptophan, Spirulina, St John's wort, L-theanine, 5-HTP, Magnesium, Curcumin, Vitamin B12, Lion's Mane, N-acetyl Cysteine (NAC), Saffron, Valerian root, Matcha, Herbal tea are listed on this page. Prescribed medicines with serious harmful side effects are mentioned at the very bottom of this page. I have often been depressed in my life and I have also been addicted to sugar, sweets and junk food. If you have bad eating habits and eat a lot of sugar you destroy your intestines. You get a yeast overgrowth in your stomach. It's also called Candida infection or Candidasis. This bacterial imbalance affects the mind negatively. If you are addicted to sugar you are probably also often very tired and decrepit. Make changes in your diet and the problem will disappear. Stop eating sugar. If you eat a consciously varied diet you will get the nutrients you need through the food. Then you can compensate with a few dietary supplements.

Immaterial values, spirituality and Christian faith
God is real. He has created you. You are created in his image and He loves you. Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Messiah - the Savior of the world. He lives today and welcomes all persons who turns to Him in faith. Jesus Christ is the way to the Father. It's fantastic when you realize that God is real, that he exists, that he has created you and me, for a purpose. He wants to have a relationship, He wants our friendship. God is the absolute best doctor in the world. Turn to Him. Trust in God. Pray to Him.

"There is compelling evidence that most organic human diseases also have psychiatric component. This is especially common in gastro-intestinal disorders such as inflammatory bowel disease. Altered intestinal microbiota, i.e., dysbiosis has been found to be strongly associated with these conditions. In the light of research on human microbiome, it is now possible to explain the significance of gut microbial consortia in mental health. Among numerous commensal gut microbes, Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium, and Saccharomyces exert beneficial health effects by restoring the balance of gut flora."

Green tea or herbal tea is fantastic and healing for both body and mind. Pick the herbs yourself in the forest, garden and make your own green tea. Or buy it. There are many herbs to choose from. Since herbs are so healthy they are a serious threat to big pharmaceutical corporations and their products. That is why there is so much negative information about medical herbs. They say things like: "study not proven" or "not scientifically proven" or "dangerous" etc. Search information yourself.

Prescribed medicines - WARNING!

Prescribed medicines with serious side effects
Some common side effects of prescribed medicines are: headaches, dry mouth, digestive issues, upset stomach, nausea, constipation, trouble sleeping and memory problems etc.

Antidepressant medications can cause suicide
Antidepressant medications are often full of toxic chemicals. This harms the nerves, brain and increases the risc of suicide. Open your eyes and see the evil corruption for what it is.
My advice: go for a natural medicine instead.
"The previous assumptions that treatment with antidepressants would lead to a drastic reduction in suicide rates, are incorrect for the population of young women. On the contrary, it was found that an increasing tendency of completed suicides follow the increased prescription of antidepressants" (This is sick.)
I'm sorry but at my job I have been giving Abilify to a patient several times. It was a part of my tasks. But not anymore. Since some months ago I have stopped giving harmful chemical medicines to the elderly. After this decision, however, I was asked by a colleague to give medicine at one point and then I did it but that was an exception. Nowadays, I do not give things that do not feel clean or fair.

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) side effects
Possible side effects of SSRIs may include, among others:
Dry mouth
Nervousness, agitation or restlessness
Sexual problems, such as reduced sexual desire or difficulty reaching orgasm or inability to maintain an erection (erectile dysfunction)
Blurred vision
