Try a walk in the country instead of a pill to lift depression.

A walk in the country may beat depression - Telegraph


"Country walks can significantly reduce depression and raise sufferers' self-esteem, according to research published today.

The first study into "ecotherapy" found that fresh air and exercise cut depression in more than 70 per cent of people.

A 30-minute walk in a country park also boosted self-esteem in nine out of 10 sufferers.

The dramatic findings raise questions about the wide use of anti-depressants, and have led to calls for "green therapy" to become mainstream practice.

Prescriptions for anti-depressants reached record levels last year. More than 31 million were written, an increase of six per cent on the year before, according to mental health charity Mind.

Demand for the group of anti-depressant drugs associated with an increased risk of suicide - called serotonin specific reuptake inhibitors - also rose by 10 per cent."

This certainly gets my vote...(o: - Vulnerable people need to be protected from the damaging side-effects of antidepressants, e.g. amitriptyline and seroxat, especially as they are now so over-prescribed. It is also very helpful to reduce salt intake. - People who do so routinely report feeling very much better and having more energy and mental alertness.

I invite you to read http://www.wildeaboutsteroids.co.uk/ami.html about amitriptyline and http://aboutsalt.blogspot.com/2007/02/pharmaceutical-industry-condemned-by-dr.html and http://aboutsalt.blogspot.com/2007/04/is-mhra-medicines-and-healthcare.html about Seroxat, about prescribing and about drug companies.
