12. Alternative Therapies Are Also Useful
Cognitive behavior therapy, which involves a therapist helping patients by giving them a set of tools to encounter any situation, is commonly suggested to treat depression. Therapists also often ask patients to change their lifestyle by including more healthy food, limiting consumption of alcohol, increasing exercise routines, developing more hobbies, and on the whole staying away from anything that can impact mental and physical health.
Other more modern forms of therapies such as music therapy, meditation, and yoga are also very popular and are suggested for people with depression. However, any alternative therapy will be successful only when used over a period of time. Herbal products, vitamins, and medicines may also be suggested along with the diet depending upon the severity of the depression.
