Healthy treatment for depression
Recently, we have been hearing in the news about a study that shows that women who take antidepressants in later stages of pregnancy have a more likely chance to have a child with autism. This study indicates that only those taking Prozac, Zoloft or Paxil being included in the study.
Bonnie Canavino, President of Amrit Organic, tells us “the 20th Century took women and their families out of the home, whole foods, basic daily remedies and more active lives (which) result in new diseases”.
The wellness industry offers a huge resource in safe and effective treatment for depression and other stress related issues. A program of both spa therapies and custom designed home care can increase the strength and resilience for our moms-to-be to help combat pain and tension. This in turn leads to less stress and little to no deep depression.
Excellent services to consider include prenatal massage, organic facials and hand and foot reflexology. Many aromatherapy oils are beneficial in easing depression, however, these should be discussed with your massage therapist to determine which oils should be avoided during pregnancy.
