Depression is one of the most common disorders especially with technology literally speeding up the lives we lead. Stress, high anxiety, tension, and even vitamin deficiencies can lead to depression.

The symptoms of depression can include:

  • Loss of energy
  • Lack of interest
  • Sadness
  • Loss of appetite
  • Itching
  • Nausea
  • Aches and pains
  • indecisiveness


Mix 15 grams of rose petals with 250 ml of boiling water, let this cool and consume 3-4 times a week in place of coffee or tea.

Lemon Balm

The herb lemon balm is beneficial in so many ways, but in the treatment of fatigue and other ailments it is extremely beneficial. 

Simple mix 30 grams of the herb in half a liter of cool water, let stand for 12 hours. Once it has brewed you should strain it and consume in small doses throughout the day.

Vitamin B

A vitamin deficiency can cause many problems physically but most people do not know it can cause severe mental problems. Foods that are rich in vitamin B are great for mental health.

These foods include:

  • Wholegrains
  • Green vegetables
  • Eggs
  • Fish
  • Nuts and Seeds
  • Beans and Legumes


Cardamon is a great remedy for mental disorders. Simply add the powdered seeds to boiling water and/or tea that has been prepared in the normal way. The aroma is amazing and the benefits will begin to show once you have consumed daily for a couple of weeks.


Powdered asparagus root should be consumed daily. COmbine 2-3 grams of the powder to teas, food, or by itself with water. This is an excellent tonic for optimum mental health.


These nuts are amazing for nervous disorders and mental disorders. They are rich in vitamin B, and riboflavin which help improve the nervous system and can even restore a loss in appetite.


Vitamin B, phosphorous, and potassium are all amazing substances that are all present in apples and work in a beautiful symbiotic relationship. We suggest consuming one apple in the morning and at night with honey and milk.
