CONCLUSION: Patients with depression report individually different treatment preferences. These findings underline the importance of elucidating patients' preferences within a shared decision making process as recommended by treatment guidelines. There is a need of evidence-based information on the role of alternative therapies in the context of depression treatment. PMID: 31412368 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In trying to cope with the debilitating symptoms of depression, people often turn to vitamins, supplements, herbs, or home remedies first. And it’s no wonder — such efforts to alleviate symptoms are often far less expensive and easier to obtain. For some, it may be a part of their rationalization that their depression “isn’t all that bad,” if it can be treated with vitamins and supplements. Many people find relief in taking vitamins and supplements for depression. It is also one of the most well-researched topics, so we know what the science has to say about the efficacy of such treatments. Bu...

ConclusionSpirituality underlies many of the experiences of MI, including changes in identity, meaning making, social supports, and MI symptoms. The findings of this mini-review highlight the need to consider a person’s spiritual fitness and health throughout military service and during treatment of MI and examine how spirituality can be fostered to help build resilience and reduce the risk of MI (17). While acknowledging the limited quality of evidence, encouraging military members and veterans to draw on S/R resources and practices may be a salve to psychospiritual distress. Integration of spirituality as a bona fi...

Conclusions: Most studies were of poor quality and results should be interpreted with caution. Overall moderate effects were found which decreased substantially when interventions were compared to active control. It is unclear whether meditation, yoga or mindfulness affect academic achievement or affect have any negative side effects.

They found that women practicing Tai Chi/yoga (20 min per week for 12 weeks) had lower depression, anxiety, and sleep disturbance scores compared to a waitlist control group (Table 1).

Becoming serious about recovery When someone is in treatment, it isn’t always by choice. Sometimes, family and friends have to rally together and stage an intervention in order for their loved one to see that they need help. They are given harsh guidelines and consequences should they choose not to go, and are often feeling like they were “forced” against their better wishes. Some people who enter in these circumstances do so reluctantly, hoping to just work through the motions and get out as quickly as possible. However, there is hope for a successful recovery for each and every client who enters treatme...
