Depression treatment: There are both medical and non-medical treatments for depression. Non-medical treatments for depression include exercise, healthy diet, therapy, herbal supplements (5 htp, same and st john's wort), journaling and light therapy. I can't really say there is one particular treatment that is the best. Often for severe depression a combination treatment of medication and therapy is beneficial.
