My husband has been feeling very low for the past few months. We took him to doctor and he suffers from depression. He is busy man so no time for doctor visit. Is there way to treat depression with home cure?

Various lifestyle strategies help ward off depression effectively. They include: • Exercise: Exercise helps your body release endorphins and promotes nerve cell growth. A minimum of 30 minutes each day is enough to relieve the symptoms of depression. • Healthy Diet: Fast foods and processed foods contain trans fats that increase the risk of depression. Include healthy polyunsaturated fats like vegetable oils and fish in your diet instead. • Sound Sleep: Many depressed individuals have trouble getting sound sleep owing to anxiety and stress. They find it difficult to wake up in the morning, choosing instead to stay in the comfort of a dark and warm bedroom. • Pursuing hobbies, meditation, recreation, and spending time with family.
