Who knew the answer was fish oil?

The usual disclaimer applies here: I am not a physician. I am not recommending any treatment. I am simply sharing my experience – things that have worked (and not worked) for me.

In March a friend told me of a program at the University of Kansas called ‘Theraputic Lifestyle Change (TLC)”. It is a program to deal with depression without drugs. The following link will take you to the TLC web site: http://tlc.ku.edu/.

The elements of the program are:

  • Omega-3 Fatty Acid Supplements
  • Anti-Rumination Strategies
  • Exercise
  • Light Exposure
  • Social Support
  • Sleep Hygiene

Most of my life I have practiced all the elements of the program except for the omega-3 fatty acid supplements. That was new to me as being a help with depression. On the TLC web site Dr. Ilardi explains why omega-3 fatty acids (fish oil) help with depression. They have sure helped me.
