Acupressure for Depression Treatment

Acupressure for Depression Treatment , Use the combination of exercise, diet, change in the attitude, and acupressure treatment for best results:
~ Exercise for at least 30 consecutive minutes every day. The exercise must be repetitive such as swimming or jogging. Do not interrupt the exercise. After consecutive 30 minutes of exercise endorphin is released into the blood stream. Endorphin is a natural body painkiller. Endorphin and morphine are chemically different molecules but, by coincidence, they have very similar 3- dimensional shape. This similarity in shape allows morphine to bind the endorphin receptor, reduce pain, and induce feeling of euphoria. The endorphin released by exercise and acupressure treatment will improve your mood and will eventually lead to complete disappearance of depression.
~ In most people caffeine tends to increase nervousness and agitation. Therefore exclude tea, coffee, and other caffeinated beverages from your diet.
~ Change your attitude – you CANNOT be guilty for everything you blame yourself.
~ Start a diary – write down a list of problems and possible solutions. When massaging active points lie comfortably in bed, close your eyes and breath deeply. Treat active points until numbing feeling is produced.
