Stress and anxiety are often repeated terms that people use frequently when they are faced with an overwhelming situation. Yet, these are also clinical terms that can refer to hormonal imbalances which can cause despair, panic, hopelessness, depression and other such emotionally and mentally debilitating problems. Apart from the conventional methods of drugs for symptomatic treatment and counselling or therapy, one can make use of several alternative treatment methods to bring down the stress and anxiety levels significantly.
Here are the top four ways of treating the same:
- Meditation: Transcendental and other forms of guided and unguided meditation can go a long way in realigning yourself with your inner resources so as to create a more congenial environment as you go about doing your daily activities. With meditation, you can focus on your breath or a certain point or you can choose to listen to guided medication which will take you through a scene and help you relax. Soothing treatments such as these will help you in grounding yourself in a better way for a more fluid progression of your day. One can even practice mindfulness techniques for meditation to get into a frame of mind where you will basically observe rather than get affected by everyday events. You must find yourself a quiet place where you can meditate in a peaceful way.
- Yoga: Many people consider Yoga and its various postures and poses as the best means for the union of the mind, the body as well as the spirit. So, this is also a good way to keep stress and anxiety away. Ensure that you practice the exercises, poses and various breathing activities on a daily basis for at least half an hour to one hour in order to feel visible effects in your mood.
- Acupressure: There are a series of specific acupoints in everyone 's body which can be pressed and activated in order to relieve the painful and debilitating symptoms of many conditions, including stress and anxiety. Acupressure is a well known way of dealing with these conditions. This method, with its pointed devices and needles, helps in releasing endorphins and eliminating toxins with reduced muscle pressure and better blood circulation.
- A Better Routine: One of the best ways of removing stress and anxiety from your life is by taking care of your routine and ensuring that you eat, sleep and exercise at a set time every single day so as to create a more organised environment in your life. Limiting caffeine and removing smoking or excessive alcohol dependence can also improve the condition by leaps and bounds.
If the stress and anxiety does not go away with natural methods, then it is best to see a doctor for supplements and therapy.

Depression is a mental illness marked by feelings of profound sadness and low interest in positive activities. It is a persistent low mood that interferes with the ability to function and appreciate things in life. It may cause a wide range of symptoms, both physical and emotional. It can last for weeks, months, or years. There could be various causes of depression, but poor diet is one of the reasons revealed by researchers.
A certain study reinforces the hypothesis that a “healthy diet has the potential to not only ward off depression, but also prevent it."
Depressed individuals often have a poor diet quality and a decreased intake of nutrient rich food. But this is not yet clear in the case of healthy individuals suffering from depression.
A healthy diet characterized by vegetables, fruits, cereals, milk and low fat dairy products, pulses, fish, meat and poultry is associated with a lower risk of depression.
Increased intake of folate was also associated with a decreased risk of depression because low folic acid levels leads to low same (s-adenosylmethionine), which increases symptoms of depression. By improving folic acid status, same increases, and depressive symptoms drop. Vegetables, fruits, berries, whole-grains, meat and liver are the most important dietary sources of folate.
In addition, coffee and tea also act as anti-depressants to an extent because caffeine promotes the production of dopamine (a neurotransmitter released by the brain) which is responsible for the feeling of well being and happiness. But the amount of caffeine consumed should not be more than 300mg per day as caffeine is an addictive substance.
Omega 3-fatty acids, which are found in vegetable oil, nuts and fish oil, increase the level of serotonin (known as the happy hormone), which reduces the level of depression. Not only this, essential amino acids like tryptophan play a role in the formation of serotonin. Meat, fish, beans and eggs are good sources of essential amino acids.
Having refined carbohydrate and processed foods increases your blood sugar levels and does not provide any kind of nutrient to the body and brain. It even utilizes the mood enhancing vitamin b. Sugar also diverts the supply of another nutrient involved in mood enhancing, chromium. The best way to lower your sugar level is to have food low on the glycemic index.
Lastly, vitamin d deficiency may cause depression because vitamin d is responsible for brain development. So consume vitamin d rich foods such as egg, mushrooms, fish etc.
Depression is one of the leading health challenges in the world and its effect on public health, economics and quality of life are enormous. Not only the treatment of depression, but even the prevention of depression needs new approaches. Change in dietary and lifestyle factors are one of the possible approaches.
