Depression and Anxiety Treatment Without Medication

Depression and Anxiety Treatment Without Medication

"Is there a recovery from depression without medication?"

This is a question that many people ask Dr R K Aggarwal and rather they also search for the web, talk to other doctors to seek alternative then treatment hoping that they can recover on their own without taking any treatment. Well for that answer can be very complicated as well as simple. It basically depends on the severity and persistence of the symptoms on is having.

Few people with whom Dr R K Aggarwal has had experience with has recovered fully from depression entirely on their own using some of the natural tips and treatments which are i am going to mention in this article as well.

If anyone needs to directly come and talk with, He/She is welcome to come and talk with Dr R K Aggarwal directly.

Reaching out for a help is an important part of the recovery process but to get that help can take many forms and what works for one person may not also work for another so be careful before using any methods without prescriptions.

There are effective non-drug treatment options for mild to moderate depression.

Many people with mild to moderate depression, where sleep is adequate, can recover from depression with talk therapy and adjudicative strategies such as exercise, improved nutrition, mindfulness techniques, sunlight or light therapy, support from friends, family or a support group, and lifestyle changes. All individuals with depression should rule out a medical issue which may contribute to their depressed mood. Many medical problems, including vitamin deficiencies and hormone imbalances, can contribute to depression. Getting a thorough physical exam to rule out a medical cause is important.

If there is no clear medical cause, psychotherapy which focuses on improving self-care, reengaging in pleasurable and meaningful activities, and managing negative thoughts can be helpful in many cases. Working on issues that are impacting relationships with friends, loved ones, and

family can also greatly relieve depression in some individuals.

And for some,

exploring and resolving unresolved grief or early childhood trauma may be important.

Other approaches that can contribute to recovery include bodywork, acupuncture or other alternative medical approaches, meditation, yoga, or spiritual exploration.
Taking medication for depression, when needed, should not be viewed as a failure.

However, it is important to recognize that depression is an issue as serious as diabetes, epilepsy, or even cancer. Because it involves mood, thoughts, and behavior, it can often be treated through those channels. But there are also genetic and environmental factors that make some individuals susceptible to depression and which may result in a more persistent condition that is more difficult to treat.

 Depression Symptoms, Warning Signs, Types, and Warning Signs 

Just as other conditions sometimes require medication for their treatment, depression may also require medication to fully resolve. And it is important to recover fully rather than settle for persistent mild depression. Persistent depression can become chronic and more severe over time as the brain becomes accustomed to the depressed state. Therapy and medication combined have the highest success rate in terms of resolving depression, and when therapy alone is not sufficient, it may help to consult with a doctor to discuss medication options.

It is important to remember that, when it comes to treating depression,

There is no prize for recovering “better” than another person.

Recovering without therapy, without medication—literally “on your own”— does not earn you any awards.

The prize is being emotionally healthy.

Hi lybrate-user, You are just 30, why you want to have such negative feelings. It can be cured only if we take some steps to overcome this. Eating healthy and sleeping well will not cure your anxiety completely some more additional treatment is required. Only if you undergo treatment and counselling your problem will be solved. First, I need to know more about your problem, whether it is caused internally or mentally. Only then we can decide what type of treatment is required. You need psychological treatment or other treatment either medically or not. Do not worry. Definitely we can cure your anxiety provided you should undergo treatment. If you feel free to discuss this further you are most welcome to contact me either through in-patient visit over phone, chat or mail. Be relaxed, you are too young to have some negative feelings. You should actually be confident and courageous and should volunteer for further assistance. Take care.

I'm not having a good married life. Married for 3 years now. Was a Love marriage. But many times feel that I made a hasty decision in choosing my partner. Accepted his proposal in just 2 months. He's good at heart but his temperament is something I can't handle. Makes a big issue out of nothing. I have let gone many times but now can not take it anymore. He's always very serious and we don't have a good sex life as well, because I'm not that much into sex and not adventurous enough as him. Although I love intimacy. Many times I feel I'm a failure and want to end my life. But don't get the guts to do it because my parents faces come in front of my eyes. As a person I have always been jovial, mentally and emotionally strong but changed completely after meeting this person. I have always been egoistic when it comes to asking for help. I never believed that a person should need help of another person like psychologist because we should be able to solve our problems on our own. And here I am asking for help.

Dear lybrate user, Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

Doctor please help me out. One year earlier I was travelling in bike suddenly I felt like unconscious and I felt I will fell, anyhow I drove and reached home. I had bp problem but it was minor but that fear that I might fall some unknown place while driving my bike made me worry and slowly I stopped driving. Slowly this problem turned to fear of death and I overtime started thinking that going out, driving, might harm me. I really want to drive the bike but every time I start it the fear engulfs and that day scene comes in front of me. I just drive bike from my home to office that is 2 kms only. The moment I decide to go long drive I get tense, worried, fear increases. It feels I will die. Please help my age is 32, I want to enjoy the life again. Please doctor.

Relax. You know well that your fear is irrational. It can be overcome by graded exposure to the feared thing. I. E. I suggest you to put forth your target a little more for 10 days. I mean, drive 3 kms instead of 2 for practice. And make it 5 kms everyday for 10 more days and so on, the goal must be limited at the point where you feel fear, and you practice more and more till that point/distance. You can also take a friend with you in a separate bike, for your help until you become independent.

Dear Lybrate User, Cholesterol is naturally produced inside the body of every living animal. Human beings are no exception to that. But when we take mutton, chicken, yellow part of a boiled egg, ghee, butter etc we intake cholesterol from external source. This extra cholesterol from external sources increase the total cholesterol content of human body. You should always keep your cholesterol level within normal limits as high cholesterol serves as a precursor to various cardiac diseases. Avoid the aforesaid food. Walk at least 1 hour in a day without any interval. Also you can take Homoeopathic Mother Tincture FUCUS VESICULOSUS Q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water.

I am diagnosed with bipolar 2 and borderline personality disorder. Do I have to take medicine my whole life?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I am diagnosed with bipolar 2 and borderline personality disorder. Do I have to take medicine my whole life?
Probably, if you do not combine medication with counseling. Both can be crippling diseases if not treated and if treated early the prognosis is good. So quickly visit a psychiatrist and seek his/her opinion and you must then follow the medication prescribed. Comply with all the medical prescriptions and work in tandem with a counselor for a long time and learn coping skills and techniques to handle the daily challenges you will face. There are certain adaptations that will suit you during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime, you can do certain things that will give you benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. You need to particularly look at your levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in an appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger may have origins in early childhood that you may never be aware of now. Talk to your parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also, you will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. You must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If your motivation and cooperation are good much can be achieved. You must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times you will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that you can do without the medication. This will set you back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned you are forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor. Bipolar is characterized by two extreme poles i. E. Feeling very high (mania) and suddenly feeling very low (depression). You can ask the doctor for the symptoms he noticed in you for a personal understanding.
