I had sent this link to a friend who has dealt with a lowness for as long as I've known her. She uses most of the above supps but hasn't used a lot of magnesium and dealing too with afib now....and there is that connection with heart and magnesium.

This link talks about the Best forms of magnesium to use for depression.

I think this is all good info to know.

Default 10 Things to do to Beat Depression

I have just read this article and would like to share it.

Often, we must take a multi-factorial approach to overcoming any condition.
A multi-factorial approach may also help with depression.

Enjoy the article!

With Hope,

All good info, DejaVu, what jumped out was the 2000mg DHA, I get 500mg daily in my Max DHA omega 3 supp and that was a higher dose of DHA... Dr. Perlmutter's book has going on 4000 reviews on amazon. Great book. I'm not depressed as I've worked on that one since 1991 and it was thyroid not diagnosed for 10 yrs.

Talking Maximize Feeling Good About Ourselves

Hi Caroline,

Thanks for commenting!

I also think this article shares helpful information.
If we take all 10 suggestions and implement them, some of us might be making lifestyle changes in doing so.

Many times, we are unconsciously making choices which help to ensure, or help to aggravate depression. Sometimes, we are doing things which, ultimately, feed into low self-esteem or self-deprecation.

I have felt a need to stop and honestly evaluate my own daily lifestyle and environment. Am I truly doing the best I can do to stay in a positive frame of mind and truly optimizing any healing potential by choices made every day?

It takes time and some devotion/commitment to carry through on daily habits which are apt to help us to be our best.

Making all kinds of changes in my own life and in my home environment. Some small changes are apt to bring me more joy!

Hi Eva,

It's all very interesting!

The success rate of some of these approaches seems to be greater than meds, or meds alone.

Some people cannot tolerate meds at all. Others have had multiple trials of all kinds of meds and meds do not help them.

There are different types of depression, which can also make a difference in helpful treatment approaches.

I think it's very important to be optimizing brain function in every way possible, including making sure we are taking in related nutrients.

The vagus nerve approach is interesting.

I enjoy hearing from you, Eva.

Much Love to you, Eva

And it's so easy to go on and on about Lack and Less and the Half Empty Glass. I refuse to do that as I KNOW how fortunate I am and that I can continue to keep "up" my advancing life as I know best to. We have so much in these advanced countries and I hear so much on my NPR/BBC about the rest of the world...Good Grief.....give thanks and drink from that Full Glass. Everyone has ups and downs, and true a lot have many downs, but remember the ups. I remind some friends who are forever in a negative frame --- think about all the good times.... There is so much help out there today and so much can be free. Meditation is very free. C
