For some time I have had problems with depression and anxiety and at this point don't know what to really do about it.
-I'm not interested and do not have the money to take multiple prescription drugs.
-Seeing a counselor every now and then has done squat.
-A while ago I stumbled onto something called EFT (emotional freedom techniques), which in a nut shell is like accupuncture for your subtle energy system. When I heard about it, it sounded strange, but did it anyway. At least for a while it seemed like it helped, but now I'm not sure.
More recently just browsing through several books I have on juicing and the various foods and vitamins for reducing stress, (etc.) I'm wondering if anyone here can testify to taking vitamins for "curing" their depression/anxiety.
Among those that I have heard: B vitamin complex, fish oil (omaga 3), magnesium are suppose to help.
Cellery is suppose to be rich in B vitamins and has sedative like qualities--it seems after nibbling on some cellery I'm more able to chill out; however the effect it has depending on my level of stress can be very short lived.
I have also been wondering if part of this is being brought on by my menstrual cycle, but given how my PMS symptoms prior, during and after are varied and inconsistent it is hard to know for sure.
