Great article on Grief Support HERE.
Help With Grief and Depression. A lovely lady came to me for help. she had lost her daughter to a violent murder 7 years before. Her son and grandchildren (the children of her daughter) had never recovered from the grief. They were embroiled in abusive dysfunctional patterns towards her and themselves.
Here are some resources I suggested for her. No matter where you live, you should, in my opinion treat your depression with holisitcally. These resources are local to me in South Eastern Florida, except for the nutritional supplements, of course, but the concepts are the same.
HELP WITH GRIEF: Holistic medicine, holistic therapy, holistic nutritional support and reading books about the world of spirit where your loved ones live.
1. Holistic Doctor. One of the things to look at in managing grief is your physicality. Your hormones need to be evaluated in this process. As we age we lose our natural supply of feel good happy hormones. Only a holistic physician will evaluate this as part of your evaluation.
For a holistic approach, I recommend Dr. Mitch Ghen. He is absolutely wonderful. I was on his radio show. He is highly knowledgeable and has stellar credentials as well.
