Treating Depression With Alternative Medicine

Exercise, mind-body therapies, and herbal supplements may have the power to affect your outlook and even alter your brain chemistry. Many of these treatments are safe, but aren’t always proven to be effective.

People suffering from depression often look for relief using CAM therapies either as a complement to traditional treatment or as an alternative.
