How I am Overcoming Depression Naturally (Motivation Inside)
As most of you know, I’ve taken a different direction with mine and my family’s health. When I announced that I was deciding to take a leap into Essential Oils–some of you gave me a hard time about it.. that’s okay 🙂 I don’t expect to have everyone agree with me.
The truth is, I’ve dug into essential oils because I was desperate. Tired of being over medicated, over medicating my family. I just want to feel good and my family be healthy.
I’ve talked about it before on the blog… my ever-long battle with depression. I know there are a lot of factors into overcoming depression (trust me, I’ve been the test-dummy for depression) but people I was ready to overcome my depression in a way that I’ve never fought it before. If you’ve ever experienced overcoming depression you know that the fight is a HARD one… Taking a pill to make it all go away is not what happens. Many people have a misconception that depression is just a way of thinking.. it isn’t. It is a illness and it doesn’t just “go” away.
Here is my story:
For the last five years I’ve been dealing with overcoming depression. I was diagnosed with postpartum depression after I had my youngest son (now 5) and for some reason I’ve never been able to shake it. 3 years ago I was diagnosed with major depression and since then have gone through 5 different anti-depressants. 2 years ago, I decided to stop taking Effexor and try dealing with things more naturally. About two months ago people, I had decided with my husband that I might go back to the doctor and see what I can do for my moods.
The problem is.. this is NOT what I want. I was becoming more and more frustrated with the fact that I knew that my depression symptoms were coming back. I was tired of being medicated and suffering from side effects. That is why I wanted to get into Essential oils. I’ve pretty much dove in head first because I am determined to be better without drugs.
After consulting with a friend who is also oily and uses young living I decided to get this awesome blend called Progessence Plus Serum. It has several different oils in it in and also has a natural hormone called progesterone.
I’ve been using Progessence Plus for several weeks now– and have found that I am feeling amazing. I apply it everyday (very small drops) and not only have I found more energy throughout my day but my moods are very neutral and I don’t experience any side effects. I am enjoying every day things and don’t find it a struggle to do normal activities.
This post isn’t to try to convince you of anything.. I just wanted to share. Also, if you are on anti depressants and want to get off of them– please do not quit without prior direction from your doctor. I just know how much of a struggle it is to be “normal” when you are overcoming depression and am excited to have hopefully found a solution.
