Anyone managing depression or anxiety naturally?

Just curious if anyone here is trying to manage their depression or anxiety without taking prescription medications? I have recently started seeing an acupuncturist regularly, taking Chinese herbs for anxiety, exercising, and trying to eat a balanced diet. I also take additional vitamins and trying to get enough sleep. I was quite unhealthy over the holidays in terms of eating poorly, drinking alcohol, and not exercising. That seemed to really take a toll on my mental health and confidence. I am committed to trying to be a healthier, happier person. Even though I know I will have my slip ups, I really am going to try to see if a more holistic approach to managing mental health helps me overall.

Anyone have advice or suggestions on things they have tried that have helped?

Any tips?

I have diarrhea for 3 damn days now. My only option is to go to the emergency room or wait out 2 more days to
see if it will go away. I had diarrhea a week ago but it was over in 2 and a half days. Then I ate a plate of steak with a
side of veggies (broccoli, string beans, carrots and potatoes). The food is all fresh and well cooked, other people
in my family ate it and have no problem. About 2 hours after I ate that, I had hot chocolate. I think the hot
chocolate didn't mix well with the steak but if it was the food, the diarrhea shouldve been over within a day and a half because I went
to the toilet MANY times, all of the food should be gone :(. I tried hot ginger juice, gatorade, imodium pills, pepto bismo,
and ate toast and apples. If my trips to the toilet subsided, my stomach still feels nauseous and I feel like puking every time
I take measly bites of food. On another note, I am 5 feet and weigh like 105 lbs, this is really bad for my weight issue
as I've been working on gaining more weight. If you have any tips, throw some in here too. I spoke to the doctor about this
weight issue awhile back and I've been told that it's normal weight for my height range so that's no help.

Please help: Solution to suffering from liver damage


I need all you all's input. An older-aged friend is really suffering right now from liver damage caused by an excess of alcohol consumption in the past. He has not had a drink in two years, but the damage has been done and right now he's very sick. He is currently at the hospital, but I have also promised to do some research and compile a list of natural treatment options for his wife. (Especially since a transplant will probably not be a viable option.)

So far, this is what I have come up with. I would appreciate your input on what I already have, as well as further suggestions. Also, if anyone happens to speak Spanish (I am living in Mexico but have only been speaking the language for 6 mos. now), I would really appreciate corrections of anything I may have mis-translated. I am especially uncertain about "dock" (likely is the word for boat dock since I found it with an online translator...) and "Oregon grape" (because I know that "ova" is just the word for the fruit, grape).

#1 Blackberry (zarzamora): good for "sluggish liver." Make a tea from the leaves.

#2 Chicory root (raiz de achicoria): liver-cleansing. Brew it like coffee.

#3 Dandelion (diente de leon): stimulates the liver to rid the body of poisons. Eat the leaves or make a tea from the ground root.

#4 Dock (darsena?): stimulates liver bile and clears toxins. Steep root in hot water, strain and reheat tea. Don't boil the root.

#5 Fennel (hinojo): Repairs liver damage caused by alcohol (perhaps this is their best option?). Root extract or tea made from leaves.

#6 Oregon grape (Uva de Oregon?): Root has blood-cleansing properties, used to alleviate liver-induced symptoms. 1 oz. of dried root to 1 quart of water.

Thank you for your help.

Breastbone Pain

My boyfriend has been experiencing pain at the tip of his breastbone, and radiating outward to the left and right, every day or every two days, or so. It is often accompanied by nausea and dizziness, and sometimes by a little bit of burping up of gas. It seems to happen more when he is drinking something, or standing for a long time. He says there are no other notable symptoms.

Does anyone know what might be the cause of this, and any natural treatments which might be effective?

Thanks for your help : )

Reiki Symbols – The Gift of Life Force

There are two schools of thought about Reiki symbols. The first says that Reiki symbols are sacred and not to be shared with those who are not initiated into Reiki. It is thought the Reiki symbols will not work, and will be diluted if they are shared with someone who has no knowledge of how to use them. The second school of thought is sharing the Reiki symbols with everyone is really what the energy of Reiki is all about – UNIVERSAL life force. And thus, it should be available to all to share. Seems there is no right or wrong here, just which school of thought you subscribe to, or what your Reiki training has been.

There are still some old Reiki masters who will tell you right off the bat that the Reiki symbols are not to be shared with just anyone, as it takes away from the power of them. There may be sense in this argument if you stop to think about the Reiki symbols themselves. They don't mean anything to someone who has no idea what they are or what they can achieve with them. On the other hand, there are so many self-help books on the subject of Reiki and using the Reiki symbols that you might think you can learn how to do Reiki through using a book and teaching yourself.

If the books dealing with Reiki symbols are to be believed, you should not only be able to learn the symbols, but attune yourself and become whatever level of practitioner you wish. While this sounds simple, there really is a whole lot more to it than just reading a book. Particularly when you get more advanced in levels.

Without getting into too much about the symbols, as in drawing them, we can certainly tell you the names of the symbols used for the lower levels of Reiki energy channeling. If you are just starting, the first level of Reiki requires no symbols to work. It does however need an attunement from the Reiki master who is training you. Level 2 symbols need to be given to you by the Reiki master along with an attunement to the second level. Self-help books indicate you can do attunements yourself. That is still a highly controversial level and a word of caution here. Do energy work with respect and caution.

But, back to the Level 2 symbols. There are three of them – the Power symbol, the Mental/Emotional Symbol and the Distance Symbol. The Power symbol means "by Imperial decree, put all the power of the universe here". The Mental/Emotional Symbol means "God and humanity become one, to create a new habit". The Distance Symbol means "May the Buddha (enlightened one) in me connect with the Buddha in you to promote peace and dignity."
