Depression has sadly become a common disorder nowadays. In a mild form, patients can lead a somewhat normal life, but in case of a severe depression, the condition can be life-threatening.
Here are the most common signs of depression:
Sadness, anxiety or “empty” feelings;
Feelings of guilt;
Fatigue and reduced energy;
Irritability and restlessness;
Insomnia or excessive sleeping;
Although not easy to treat, science has recently discovered that depression can be treated by a natural ingredient – turmeric. Turmeric is incredibly effective against Alzheimer’s, can reduce the levels of cholesterol, prevents cells from turning cancerous, cures skin cancer and can also help in case of liver disease, jaundice, diarrhea and arthritis.
Here are the top health benefits of turmeric:
Rich in antioxidants;
Has potent anti-inflammatory benefits;
Reduces the risk of developing heart disease;
Supports the brain function.
Prozac is the usual treatment drug for depression but it (like other antidepressants) has adverse side-effects which can cause suicidal tendencies, breathing difficulties and internal bleeding. According to research, turmeric’s active ingredient curcumin has the same, if not better effects that most antidepressants without the harmful side-effects.
Here’s a recipe for a delicious turmeric lemonade which can help you fight depression:
Lemon juice (from one and a half lemon);
4 tablespoons of 100% maple syrup;
2 tablespoons of powdered turmeric;
4 cups of sparkling water;
Juice of one blood orange (optional).
Mix the ingredients in a small pitcher and enjoy your turmeric lemonade.
