    Yoga, Tai chi, Meditation these are all cures for mental illnessess. But take care to learn them from experts. Alternatively you can try Relaxation therephy, Hypnotherepy etc etc.

    Umm nope. I would be rich if that was the case.

    No. Because there is no cure for ANY mental illness.

    St. John’s wart is considered helpful by some for depression, and other herbs are used to treat other illnesses, but the best treatment is still medical (drugs, therepy, etc).

    Also, many ‘natural remedies’ can harm someone, especially someone suffering from a mental illness. Not only by poisioning, but by simply screwing with an already mis-wired brain. The chances are lessened with FDA approved medication and proper medical supervision.

    Are you talking about natural as in a herbal pill of some kind?

    If so there are plenty on the market, ST Johns wart is one.

    But personally I think people have become too stuck on the whole ‘illness’ side of mental illness.
    It is a problem that is in the mind essentialy (hence the word mental) so if you are determined and commited you can talk yourself through it.

    No mental illness can really be “cured” at present. People can recover/manage their symptoms though.

    Talking therapies like CBT are very effective in treating a lot of mental health problems, they could be classed as a “natural” treatment. Things like excercising, eating a balanced, healthy diet also help many mental illness. They can make up part of the solution rather than being a cure on their own.
