Comment: Some of depression is chemical.

(See in situ)

Some of depression is chemical.

Take a good quality health food store multi vitamin.
Take additional niacin (nicotinic acid -- the kind that gives you a flush).
Take iodine supplements like Iodoral and take selenium, magnesium, and tyrosine with it.
Don't eat sugar of any kind - certainly not granulated sugar, corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, fructose, honey, maple syrup, and the like. If you must have sweetener, use stevia drops. Some of what is sold as stevia has some other dangerous sweetener added, so be careful.
Avoid grains, even whole grains.
Eat unprocessed meats and if you fry use lard (best to broil). Eat beef rare.
Eat plenty of vegetables, lightly cooked.
Eat a small amount of fruit.

High fat, low carb, high protein, high fiber.

And for heaven sakes, don't fall for the low fat diet insanity. Your brain and nervous system need a huge amount of fat to function property. Fats from seeds like corn, sesame, rapeseed, etc. are crap. Vegetable fats should come from coconut or olive oil only, and most of your fats should come from animals.

Doesn't need to be excessive. Just enough to get you sweating and breathing heavily for maybe 20 minutes a few times a week.

I know, it all sounds unconventional, but conventional is what gives you chemical imbalance depression.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.
