Interesting and valuable but I have a huge concern with online pharmacies.

This can put a depressed person at even greater risk. The risks being obvious.

People should seek out professional help, it often take a great deal of patience and trying different medications or combinations to help.

Omega-3 fatty acids, found in fish, may hold the key to naturally easing depression.
In the past, studies have shown that in countries where large amounts of fish are consumed, rates of depression are low as compared with countries where little fish is consumed. This had led researchers to examine whether omega-3 fats found in the fish are responsible for the decreased evidence of depression. One study followed patients with bipolar disorder. Half of the participants were given fish oil tablets and the other half received a placebo. After four months, half of those on the placebo had fallen into depression, but only two out the 15 people given fish oil were depressed.
Other studies have shown similar results indicating that omega-3 fatty acids may in fact relieve depression, and some psychiatrists are now recommending that their depressed patients increase their consumption of these fatty acids.
In addition to its positive effects on depression, studies have linked omega-3s with improved cardiovascular health, as well as shown them to be potential prevention and treatment tool for certain cancers and inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis.
Omega-3 fatty acids have also proved beneficial to the development of babies` brains, therefore, pregnant and breast-feeding women are encouraged to consume these fatty acids. However, eating fish as a source of omega-3s can be dangerous to pregnant mothers because of potentially high levels of mercury in the oil tablets is an increase in dyspepsia, or ingestion that may result in gas, though researchers point out that this has been the only side effects discovered.
Researchers noted that further studies need to be done to determine whether patients would benefit from an increase in omega-3s in combination with antidepressant drugs.

On the physical side, the following may be of benefit to the depressive:
DIET: Commence the food for thought lifestyle regimen.
RESTORE NUTRIENT BALANCE: Commence the basic supplementation program, ensuring:
Vitamin B6, 50 mg, am and pm.
Zinc (gluconate), 25 mg, am and pm.
Calcium, 500 mg, am and pm.
Magnesium, 200 mg, am and pm.
Manganese, 10mg, am and pm.
Methionline, 500mg, am and pm.
TIP: Histadelics should avoid supplements containing folic acid as these can raise histamine levels.
TIP: Avoid negative conditioning, including newspapers, TV (especially soap operas) and acquaintances with a negative attitude.
EXERCISE: A regular program should be set up with a personal trainer, if possible, to keep you in the traces.
Plenty of rest.
No stress.
