Alternative treatment for anxiety and depression is a great and natural way to get relief. You should understand though, that most alternative medicine to treat anxiety and depression is used in cases where the condition is mild. People with severe depression or anxiety, to the point that it is threatening their lives or the lives of others, should not hesitate to seek medical attention.

Here are the top 4 alternative treatments for anxiety and depression:

  1. Herbal Remedies:

St. John's Wort is probably the most popular of all of the herbal remedies used to treat depression and anxiety. St. John's Wort is effective at combating mild depression and anxiety in a natural way and anxiety relief. It has been used for centuries in this regard and works very well. Other herbal remedies that work to reduce anxiety and depression are Chamomile and Valerian. Some herbal remedies can interfere with your subscription medicine. It is very important to consult your therapist before starting to use both.

Acupuncture is an ancient healing art that pinpoints pressure points and uses needles to cure pain as well as treat a variety of other different types of ailments and mild conditions. There are some who swear by acupuncture as an effective pain relief as well as a relief for anxiety. The treatment sounds dreadful, but it is actually very relaxing. It will not hurt you to try acupuncture

Even if you are on medication for anxiety and anxiety relief

  1. Massage Therapy:

Massage therapy will certainly not hurt you. To the contrary, it will feel really good and relaxing to you. You should treat yourself to massage therapy whether or not you have anxiety as it will relieve tension and stress. While massage therapy certainly works wonders to relieve physical anxiety and tension, it will not work to relieve the thought process that is usually generated by anxiety. For this reason, massage therapy works almost like a tranquilizer. It is a lot more expensive, but a lot less harmful.

  1. Aromatherapy:

Aromatherapy is another Eastern healing art that has been around for centuries. This is based on using essential oils that are derived from herbs, barks, flowers, fruits or other organic matter and either massaging them into the skin or inhaling them. Lavender is one of the few essential oils that is actually safe to use on the skin and is one that is often used to treat anxiety and depression. For anxiety and depression relief you can use lavender as a massage oil or put it into an infuser and inhale the fragrance. The concept of aromatherapy is that the fragrance will be absorbed into the bloodstream either through the skin or the lungs and begin healing.

You can try alternative treatments for depression and anxiety but remember that they offer no guarantee and should only be used in mild to moderate cases. They are generally safe to use and all, with the exception of herbal remedies, are safe to use when you are taking medication.
