New data and a review on Zinc and Magnesium in Depression

I found this brief article quite reassuring that the psychiatric community is slowly beginning to embrace nutraceutical approaches to the treatment of depression.  I was astonished to read that a trial of Magnesium was equal to Imipramine (although at a low dose).

In this new world of client-directed medicine, wise use of lifestyle modifications can be achieved without the dependence on the medical establishment–so long as you are very careful, read the literature thoroughly, and consult with your family doctor if you are uncertain, in particular about side effects (or more effective, medical approaches to serious illnesses).   Stay smart!
