- People today rely on allopathic methods for quick relief from depression, ignoring its harmful side effects
- Ayurveda and homeopathy take longer to act, but do not cause any side effects
- Frankincense and myrrh oil are examples of effective ways to curb depression in a healthy manner
‘Depression’ is a term that too many people are familiar with. Irrespective of gender and age, it can affect anyone. But, what makes it interesting that it is not an external disease that can be treated quickly with application of medicines or antiseptics. Being a mental problem, it requires a lot more care and attention.
In today’s life, when no time is available, people often seek short-term relief measures in the form of allopathy, which is conventional means of consuming drugs that incite symptoms opposite to those of the disorder or disease. Even though these pills are quick and effective, they cause a lot of side effects and after effects which are highly undesirable. Moreover, the body develops resistance against these pills, and with time, it is required to increase dosage, which again, directly correlates to harsher side effects.

Ayurvedic and homeopathic medicines are slow to act, but they do not cause any form of side effects. For example, burning of Frankincense, or Loban, does wonders in the long run.
According to The Speaking Tree, ‘Loban’ is actually extracted from the resin out of the Boswellia tree, which is then further churned into creating oils and incense. As we inhale the incense, it directly affects the TRPV3 protein in our brain, producing warm sensations on the skin.

When one comes in contact with the ‘loban’ incense, an anxiolytic effect (to reduce anxiety suffering) is experienced, and the individual feels relaxed and stress-free, with a clear mind.
Myrrh oil has similar benefits. Myrrh is a sap-like substance (resin) that comes out of cuts in the bark of trees that are members of the Commiphora species. It should be kept away from sunlight since it becomes unstable under its influence.
