Are you not comfortable with the drug prescriptions and dubious whether it will suit your body? Or either you are allergic of medicines, if so then you don’t need to worry anymore. Also, there are other ways of treatment that possess the potential to cure comparatively faster than the medicines. Dr. Eagan shares that “many people have benefited from art therapy, music therapy, even animal therapy.” The following therapies are few of them which are very much popular and strongly recommended by doctors. Therefore pay heed to each one of them vigorously, might be some of them may workout for you.

  1. Psychotherapy (a.k.a. Talk Therapy): Experience from various researches concludes by saying that a combination of Cognitive Behaviour theory and medicines are successful in quicker treatment. Basically cognitive behaviour theory deals with changing the negative patterns. But Dr. Domar acknowledges that therapies alone have the potential to heal as fast as the medicines.
  2. Aerobic exercise: Research carried out at Duke University found that the intensely stressed people who exercised just by a simple walking over thirty minutes for three days in a week became as well as people who took on the antidepressants for a long period of 16 weeks. So, doctors believe that both exercise and medicament together can turn people healthier much more quickly. Also, talk therapy with medicament can cure fastly.
  3. St. John’s Wort: This treatment is kind of a plant based dietary which acts as an effective ailment in comparison to panacea. This was found through the means of systematic and thorough research that was carried out by the American Academy of Family Physicians. Scrupulous analysis was frequently carried for 29 times and it eventually came up at the conclusion that St. John’s Wort is more proficient for those who tolerate moderate levels of stress. But before switching to this option, it is very crucial that we take guidance from the doctor. And the utmost vital point is that one should never take in prescription drugs simultaneously with this. It can jeopardise the brain because drugs have the capacity to escalate the serotonin levels which can ultimately end by taking life.
  4. Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT): This sort of treatment is basically restricted to intense, high levels and treatment-resistant depressions. It has created a negative impression on the minds of people because it incorporates in itself general anaesthesia. For working of neurotransmitters that function to stabilise the changing moods of human mind, this therapy gives short electric currents which causes convulsions in the sensitive part of the body i.e. brain. Dr. Eagan shares that “Hands down it’s the most effective treatment we have for depression, though the side effects [mainly temporary memory loss] are more severe than with other treatments.” To this he also adds that today’s time are much better than what used to be in the past, he says that now-a-days short electric currents are given, but before it was not the same. Also Dr. Clayton explains that “It’s a good option for people who are severely depressed, because it works much faster than drugs.” Expert suggests that patient should be given 3 ECT treatments in a week and this needs to be done for a period of 3-4 weeks depending upon the patient’s condition.
