Relieve Depression Without Drugs

I’ve treated several clients diagnosed with depression. In “melting the ice cube from all sides”, here’s a reference for dietary factors that can reduce or eliminate depression:

“The following dietary supplements have been shown to help restore neurotransmitter levels and alleviate depression:

  • B vitamins—A full complement of B vitamins (including at least 1000 micrograms (mcg) vitamin B12, 250 milligrams (mg) vitamin B6, and 800 mcg of folic acid daily
  • Zinc—15 to 30 mg daily
  • TMG—2 to 4 grams (g) daily
  • Cytidine diphosphate choline—250 to 500 mg daily (alternatively, 1 to 3 teaspoons liquid choline chloride mixed with 2 ounces juice daily, 1 tablespoon pure lecithin granules daily, or 250 mg glyceryl phosphoryl choline daily)
  • Micronized creatine—500 mg (in capsule form) four to eight times daily
  • N-acetylcysteine—600 mg (in capsule form) one to two times daily on an empty stomach
  • Vitamin C—1 to 3 g daily
  • Vitamin E—400 International Units (IU) daily, with 200 mg gamma tocopherol
  • EPA/DHA—1400 mg EPA and 1000 mg DHA daily
  • SAMe—400 to 1200 mg daily without food
  • St John’s wort—300 to 900 mg daily
  • Ginkgo biloba—120 mg daily
  • L-phenylalanine—500 to 1000 mg early in the day
  • Tyrosine—500 to 1000 mg daily
  • Tryptophan—500 to 1000 mg once or twice daily on an empty stomach
  • DHEA—15 to 75 mg daily, followed by blood testing in three to six weeks to make sure optimal levels are maintained. “


Personally, I also find my mood elevates when I take Vitamin D (6K IUs/day, since I don’t get as much sun exposure as our bodies need to produce it on my own), and Emergen-C packs (2 per day if I’m very busy, full of vitamins and high levels of Vit.C).

And of course, there’s always the euphoria chocolate gives (same as the biochemistry post-orgasm). You pick your weapon of choice. 😉
