Treating Depression via Lifestyle
By Dr. Neil Nedley

As important as nutrition is in treating depression, experience has demonstrated that in most people, other lifestyle treatments for depression are even more important. There are many safe lifestyle treatments that will benefit anyone who practices such an approach, whether or not they are depressed. These lifestyle changes I advocate for almost anyone, but I insist upon them for my depressed patients. They are outlined in Figure 1.

General lifestyle treatment for depression

            I will explore each of these seven general lifestyle treatments listed in Figure 1, followed by six other lifestyle treatments for depression that I prescribe for specific cases.
