No one is immune to depression, but that fact doesn’t help if you don’t know how to deal with it or move forward.
Because depression (and anxiety) is like playing the freeze game, except in this version, you’re on both ends standing still. And defrosting into “normal” isn’t always easy.
Trust me, I’ve had more than my fair share. When I was younger, I spent a considerable amount of time locked away in my room, feeling so anxious I couldn’t even pick up the phone. Depression was like carrying around invisible weights from dawn ’till dusk. And my choices for relief left me with some serious addiction habits that spiraled out of control.
However, this post isn’t about me. It’s about you.
If you’ve been feeling stuck, or even cycling in and out of bad spells, please know that there are alternative therapies that can help.
Using plants as natural healers can not only be effective, but it’s a safe and gentle way to address issues with depression, anxiety, and even insomnia. All it takes is a little patience and willingness on your part.
And this post couldn’t come at a better time, for me and perhaps you too. So many people nowadays silently suffer, afraid or embarrassed to voice the problems that are going on inside. Our society does not seem equipped to be able to handle something so delicate as depression, because after all, aren’t so many of us depressed too?

Those that do speak up may find that they become slaves to prescription meds, which isn’t *always* the best choice. I’m not here to bash anti-depressants, and I realize there are people that have benefited, however, I am not one of them. My time on prescription drugs was short lived and made me feel detached and shut down.
Which brings me to the most important point: there is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to mental health.
What works for one person may not work for another, and that’s ok. The important thing is that we keep trying to find an answer. Because if we don’t…well, the flip-side is scary.
But back to the good news: the plants!
