The only options most doctors offer their depressed patients are prescription drugs that cause adverse side effects and, in some cases, worsen the problem rather than help it. Over time, drugs can further modify brain hormones, increasing dependency on medication.

These doctors ignore non-medical options, despite the abundance of scientific literature to support these treatment methods. This paper reveals the most effective natural remedies, and exposes those that have only minor value. It explains the importance of enhanced light exposure, and shows how diminished seasonal light availability has a pervasive depressing influence for at least half the population. Through a combination of light therapy, nutritional therapy, and supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids, people suffering from depression and other emotional and mental problems can achieve high rates of remission that should exceed the response rate to medication, without the side effects.
