Retreats for Healing Depression Naturally

At the Catskills Bed and Breakfast and the Harrison Center we offer coaching and classes through Lewis Harrison’s Natural Healing Academy. In Mr. Harrison’s book Healing Depression Naturally he states, “Public perception and medical approaches to depression are determined by complex interactions among the public, the media, politicians and the medical establishment. Depression appears in many forms and at many levels of severity. In the early stages of the condition, a person may experience a single symptom or a combination of symptoms that have come to be associated with depression. These symptoms may include loss of appetite, loss of interest in hobbies, various sleep disturbances (including insomnia), and loss of sex drive, among others. Having these symptoms does not necessarily mean that a person is in a depressed state. We all experience life events and challenges that challenge our mental and emotional balance. Healthy grief and depression due to extreme events may last a few weeks or even longer. Normally, a person will eventually come out of the trauma. But some do not. These individuals seem to sink deeper into a swirl of seemingly ever darker symptoms. When these symptoms last longer than three weeks or a month, and the individual experiences a weight loss of more than five percent, and/or is fatigued, has a loss of hope, a sense of despair, and slow and/or distorted thinking, then this individual may be experiencing clinical depression.”
