B3 also know as Niacin, Some say it reduces the feelings of sadness and hopelessness, and others say it made their depression completely go away. However, according to scientific research, there's currently no evidence that niacin can be used to treat depression.
Ginkgo Biloba is an extract from the leaves of the ginkgo tree. It's been used in traditional Asian medicine for centuries. Studies have suggested that it may work better than a placebo, or “dummy,” medicine to ease the symptoms of depression. Germany has approved Ginkgo Biloba as a depression treatment.
St. John’s wort
For centuries, St. John’s wort has been used to treat a variety of health conditions, including depression and mental health disorders.
The herb also has anti-inflammatory properties, as well as antibacterial and antiviral properties.
Today, St. John’s wort is a popular alternative antidepressant medicine in Europe. However, the FDA hasn’t approved St. John’s wort as a treatment for depression.
Research is mixed on the effectiveness of this herb for depression treatment. A 2009 study published in Evidence-Based Mental Health showed the herb to be beneficial.
The study found that St. John’s wort may be more effective than a placebo. The herb also appears to cause fewer unwanted side effects than traditional depression medication.
One of the biggest areas of overcoming depression, is how your mind processes the information, you can literally talk yourself into depression, this inner dialogue is key.
Tony is qualified to teach Yoga and Meditation, over the years he came across a teaching called the 3 Principles, and when he has shared this with his clients with depression the results were really positive.
What are the 3 principles? In short it is a fundamental physiology looking at 3 aspects of how the brain works, the 3 parts are mind, thought and consciousness. This may sound very simple and in a way it is, yet really getting it, is where the magic happens.
On Youtube there are literally hundreds of short videos about the 3P's, and pretty much they all say the same thing, the benefit of this, is that this teaching is subtle, it is by listening to different talks that after watching one after another, maybe let's say one a day for a month you build up, what we call "AH HA moments" and it is these personal insights that come from within you, that will help you see depression in a totally different way. Here is one video to get you started on the journey of understanding of the 3P's. We encourage you to watch a few more video on YouTube on the 3P's. Plus at The Ozone Spa we do put on 3P's workshops through out the year, and your welcome to ask Tony any questions on the 3P's if your getting stuck on it.

We believe if you practice this for 10 minutes in the morning and possible 10 minutes in the evening , this will have an incredible effect on your emotions.
Plus if you combine this breathing technique with some Yoga stretches, this can completely calm and rebalance your nervous system. The secret is when you start the practice you maybe in not such a nice state, yet if you have the determination to face whatever state you're in, and say to yourself I'm going to work through this and build small results consistently over time, the results accumulate.

There's something so therapeutic by growing some vegetables, going for a swim in the sea, going for a walk in nature. In this technological age, of everything faster and faster, more and more. Sometimes it is in the slowly down, connecting to nature, seeing where we have come from, and seeing what we are connected to, lifts your spirit better than anything. The tip here is invite a friend or have some quiet time to yourself in nature and let the harmony of nature unravel some of your burdens.
“The best way to find yourself, is to lose yourself in the service of others.” Mahatma Gandhi
Ask yourself how you want to change the world. Remember that the world needs people like you because you have a unique mindset and skill set that no other human being can replace or recreate. This is why it is important to ask yourself, how you want to use this skill set. Get connected and more involved in your community. Any form of service for others, no matter how big or small, will both lift your spirits and the spirits of others.
While going through a divorce, documentary filmmaker Katinka Blackford Newman took an antidepressant. Not unusual except that things didn't turn out quite as she expected. She went into a four-day toxic psychosis with violent hallucinations, imagining she had killed her children, and in fact attacking herself with a knife. Caught up in a real-life nightmare when doctors didn't realise she was suffering side effects of more pills, she went into a year-long decline. Soon she was wandering around in an old dressing gown, unable to care for herself, and dribbling. She nearly lost everything, but luck stepped in; treated at another hospital, she was taken off all the medication and made a miraculous recovery within weeks. By publicising her story, Katinka went on to make some startling discoveries. Moving, frightening and at times funny, this is the story of how a single mum in Harlesden, North-West London, juggles life and her quest for love in order to investigate the side effects of anti depressants.
