    Hi! The most popular I've heard of is the herbal remedy "St. John's wort". It can be bought over the counter in most any drug store or drug section in a large grocery store. I understand that used for a few weeks can get a person over the hump, and then stop its use.

    St. John's Wart is commonly used as a natural way to treat depression. Make sure you do your research however, as it can interact with other medications you may be taking. This website outlines the use of St. John's Wart quite well -

    Keep a journal with you at all times, and stay active. Doctors have told me that depression is caused by hormone abnormalities. keep a journal with you at all times, and write down what you feel, and when you feel a certain way. Also, exercise, and try to do the things that made you feel happy before you had depression. It can take a while to feel better, but you WILL feel better.

    Make sure you eat well, and keep yourself hydrated. This can also help!

    sam-E, 800 mgs per day, has been shown to boost the power of antidepressants. omega-3's may also help. st. john's wort helps mild or moderate, but not severe, depression. and, yes, as joelipoo says, exercise boosts mood.

    I realise it's complex-a trained practitioner could help,but a B vitamin complex,exercise,a therapist, and weaning oneself off sugar (including alcohol) could all help in some measure.

    Absolutely! Diet, exercise, socialize, positive self-talk. For me those are the biggest players. I also use CPTG thereapeutic grade essential oils from doTERRA. There are some specific blends that will help with emotion and mood. I am an IPC with doTERRA. You can see my sight at and contact me through there if you are interested in specifics of using essential oils.

    Exercise and eating non-processed foods, and I find having a strong spiritual life is also helpful.

    This is a good question. I like the responses on exercise. I am no expert on this topic but I would look into herbal remedies that aid the mood swings. Also, a good diet and positive surroundings would make a difference.
