How to handle Depression effectively? A conversation with Dr. Viviane Carson.
Depression is an expression of our being. It can be healed often and not always necessarily with traditional methods like antidepressives – although they might be useful at times and in certain circumstances.
How can healing take place and health be maintained in natural and unconventional ways?
Main stream medicine has given many benefits to humanity but has become a belief system and expects everybody to exclusively follow the advice of doctors whose education was limited by the materialistic view of humans and the world.
Slowly we become re-aware that the world is not only made of material objects and that many other influences determine our health like psychological and spiritual conditions. We are adopting a more integral view of reality, fortunately, and so we find out that certain problems are best cured by traditional Western medicine (like surgery when necessary) and other problems are better addressed by different healing methods – which sometimes can even replace surgery.
New health movements have become stronger, natural healing methods with herbal medicines, homeopathic treatments. The newly emerged “functional medicine” is an attempt to overcome the fundamentalism both in traditional medicine and in many sectors of alternative medicine
