Depression is a serious mood disorder. Typical symptoms are a depressed mood, low energy levels, general joylessness, hopelessness, inner restlessness, and self-doubt. Affected people tend to worry and think incessantly without reaching their actual goals. They are restless, nervous, and unsettled. In this blog post, I’ll present to you the 11 best healing crystals and gemstones for depression that I’ve tested, and that worked for me!
However, this is in no means medical advice. Please do not hesitate to consult a doctor, even if it seems unpleasant or you are unsure. Crystals and gemstones can serve as an effective additional treatment or help for depression but never replace the main treatment!
Occurrence and Duration of Depression
In most cases, depression disappears by itself. However, the phases of the illness are very long, lasting several months, and therefore extremely tormenting, especially as they set those affected back in their lives.
With treatment, patients can hope for a quicker improvement. Due to the vulnerability of those affected, the depression usually returns at another point.
It then tends to occur at even shorter intervals.
Depression in chronic form is also possible, in which patients are considered to be “out of therapy” because they have undergone the usual methods of conventional treatments without success.
