How can you treat postnatal depression?
There is no single treatment for postnatal distress or depression and using more than one is often recommended. Talking about how you are feeling is an important step toward recovery.
Practical and emotional support
This can come in the form of support groups, friends and family, or organisations who can offer practical and emotional support by assisting you with child care, respite, help around the home, a listening/understanding ear, or a shoulder to cry on.
Holistic/homeopathic or naturopathic treatment
There are many forms of natural therapies and healing available today. They can assist in much the same way as orthodox medication in getting you to a place where you can move forward in your recovery.
The Placenta activates the endocrine glands, mediates and controls bleeding, promotes lactation and prevents post - partum depression. Placenta has the highest known quantities of bio-available Zinc, which is essential for the health of the brain, the proper functioning of the immune system and for the proper functioning of the Maternal Bonding Instinct. Another mineral that is required for maternal bonding is Manganese, which is also plentiful in human placenta.
