Exercise is at Least as Good as Drugs for Depression in Patients with Heart Disease
A four-month study of patients with coronary heart disease who also had significant depression showed the patients on a regular exercise program of only 90 minutes per week improved significantly more than those taking anti-depressant drugs. The drugs also had more side effects, especially fatigue. Drugs work for some people but there are other options to try that can be very effective and safer, including lifestyle changes, herbs, nutrients, and homeopathics.
