Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
This book offers a clear and complete recovery guide for those suffering depression. It contains information from cognitive therapy, phytotherapy to physical activity, lifestyle, diet and positive thinking. The book contains historical data since ancient time about how depression was approached in different times and cultures; a simple individualized cognitive behaviorist recovery plan; recent scientific data; case studies; herbal remedies; alternative therapies.
“Depression and Natural Remedies” exposes therapies which address specifically depression with an accent on phytotherapy. This book explains in detail issues that can trigger depression and recommends the most efficient forms of remedy. Plants have been employed in healing since ancient times. Human physiology responds best to herbal remedies as they have the highest compatibility with the body with the advantage of little to no side effects. Traditional Chinese Medicine, for example, has a comprehensive approach which considers the person as a whole, whether healthy or ill. Psychology and counseling are themselves considered alternatives. These days the world confronts difficult diseases mainly due to lifestyle and diet. Conventional medicine has not always produced a viable solution to solve them. But, many forms of alternative medicine such as herbal medicine have successfully secured a place in the future. These therapies are known for their wisdom to understand the cause of diseases and to perceive the individual holistically. If we paraphrase the ancient Greek of Ascleposis of Thessaly we can say that at the beginning of any therapeutic interventions should first stand the word. The next step would be the treatment with plants. If this is not enough, a chemical pharmaceutical agent can be employed. Only when the previous methods did not work the last step is the "knife", the surgery. In case of chronic diseases, for example, there is no medical act outside the word. The “word” means clinical interview and counseling. A comprehensive clinical interview gives you information about the cause of disease and helps establish the correct diagnosis. Nowadays this order is not always respected. This book demonstrates that the reconsideration of ancient treatments and remedies based on naturally occurring substances like plants is undeniably beneficial and improves overall health. The therapies discussed in this book can be used as an alternative to contemporary methods of treatment or as a complement to such approaches. As discussed at length in this book, these herbal remedies treat not only the body, but the soul also by bringing the patient closer to nature and the traditional and spiritual values. The book’s intention is to inform and create awareness about different useful remedies for depression. It is not intended to promote a certain treatment. The reader has the responsibility to opt for the right path of treatment.
