Experiences of alternative medicine for mental health problems?

I have a diagnosis of depression and am on anti-depressants etc. I’m now curious about trying alternative remedies to see if it helps my mood, like ginseng and lemon balm capsules (Obviously I wouldnt take anything that can cause problems with my prescribed meds).

Wondering if others have found alternative medicines has helped them at all?

Thanks in advance for any replies!

    Most alternative medicine is simply a placebo – Not that that should stop it working (placebos are very effective) but don’t pay too much for it

    St Johns Wort is sold as an alternative medicine, but is actually a pretty good anti-depressant – check anything with your Dr first

    Nutritional therapy…I went to see a nutritionist (the cost was about the same as I’d spend to MOT my car).

    I now have a way of eating that keeps my sugar levels very even and this helps my mood, it might not be a total cure for everyone but I do find that if i eat to plan I feel well and usually my ‘down’ time can be related to eating things that are not so good. The therapist also explained the science behind why everything she advised helps and what happens to your body when you don’t eat all day and then grad a twix bar or some ting on your way home….

    I haven’t gone hungry and I’ve been able to eat things I like, plus I’ve lost a bit of weight which always helps me smile!

    alternative med therapy includes a lot of things to determine which therapy to be used to remedy the situation.
    So at this point, the question could be asked what’s causing the depression? then like a flowchart the answer would be analyzed and determined what therapy would assist one.

    Outside looking in, you might do good with some Aromotherapy. Scents like Lavender, Patchouli, Geranium.

    – powdered magnesium is good, as most people with depression are deficient in magnesium.

    – get a lightbox http://www.sunbox.com. I got one for about $200 and it makes a HUGE difference–scientifically proven.
