    We have my mother living with us these days, as it has to become apparent in the past few weeks that she isn’t coping in her own house. Even with dementia, she is usually a joyful, relaxed individual with a common sense of humor. Still, since stepping in last week, she’s been in an abyss of depression, only infrequently coming out of it, then falling back along, terrified, puzzled, sobbing. After nearly begging her GP, we got an anti-depressant script, but this only staves off the delusions triggered by her bouts of misery. However, I was suggested to try some Ayurvedic remedies along with the conventional treatment. I went through a couple of books and websites such as iahas.com and learned that it can be managed by simply changing her diet to all-natural and non-processed meals made with therapeutic herbs and spices. Is anyone out there has any experience with Ayurveda’s effectiveness?

    I’m sorry to read this about your mother. I think a healthy lifestyle with a healthy diet would help her, along with a treatment plan.

    I have heard positive reviews about Ayurveda so maybe you could try it out as well. But in my opinion, depression is caused not only by external factors but also by internal aspects, such as thoughts, emotions, memories.

    My grandmother is still deling with her depression, and we thought it would be best to seek the help of a professional hometouch psychologist at home who could find the cause and then prescribe a treatment.
