The first and foremost alternative treatment for depression is the intake of proper nutrition. There must be the presence of some of the biochemicals in the body so as to keep it in top condition and this will only be achieved by eating the right foods and have all the enzymes that are necessary for digestion and metabolism of food.
Another alternative treatment for depression is restorative sleep. Lack of sleep causes a decrease in energy and endurance levels in the body. To keep your body and go, it is very important to have adequate sleep. Having Proper produces sufficient amounts of hormones and biochemicals that organs and the brain needs.
Proper exercise is also an alternative treatment for depression. You have to put balanced physical stress on your body. If you will not do exercise, then it will result in clogged blood vessels and that also interrupts the improper flow of blood.
First, you need to find out are you really depressed? Here are some simple tests to help you decide the same:
1. (A) Do you get help from talking about your problems? Or (b) Have you become uncommunicative and say very little about anything?
2. (A) Do you get help when friends visit? Or (b) You like your friends to stay away?
3. (A) Do you attribute your depression to ill-will, enmity or inability of others with whom you are currently involved in work or personal life? Or (b) Do you blame yourself almost entirely and think bad about yourself?

If you answered 'yes' to the second part (the' b) from these 3 questions then you may be suffering from very serious depression and should go see a doctor providing ‘stress therapy in Ringsted Mid-Zealand’ (also called ‘stressterapi i ringsted midtsjlland’ in the Danish language).
If you say 'yes' to the first part of the third question, or feel that the section does not apply to you then you may have what used to be called 'neurotic depression' and have a high chance aided by the appropriate method in this program now.
Simpler test can provide clues as to whether or not you need help to deal with depression:
Have you ever felt sad or depressed almost every day for at least 2 weeks?
Have you lost interest in things that once interested you and even have lost interest in almost everything?
If you answered "yes" to both questions then despite self-help program may have a high chance of helping you, it is still very likely you suffer from depression and should consider seeing a mental health professional for further evaluation.
