There are specific quotes in the Bible that target emotional health and well being and this should come as no surprise as this Book does cover, in my opinion, the whole range of humanity, including depression and its symptoms. As a source of help for depression, like perhaps any religious book, it could work wonders for dealing with the depression-of course when used wisely.
These symptoms of depression, which consequently make us seek help, include feeling alone, having low-self esteem, a negative outlook on life and even in some more adverse cases, suicidal thoughts. Thankfully, there is a God who cares and His assistance in regards to a successful depression treatment remains unmatched. The key is you have to approach the methods the RIGHT WAY.
Most of us turn to prayer in seeking depression help, however as I’ve stated in previous articles, to get the answers you seek for your problems (which actually may lie within, by the way) will require a clear mind. This perhaps can come only from a cleaner body. Since fasting is advocated in several faiths, perhaps this is why most people in the Bible (or even the Quran) fasted before, during and after seeking God’s help.
Remember drugless remedies have three limbs: Diet, exercise and Positive thinking. I’ve covered the diet and exercise part, let’s deal with positive thoughts for depression help.
To strengthen your thoughts and emotional health with the Bible (obviously I am Christian folk, but I am sure any religious book will work), I refer you to what I label as thought conditioners that you can use for depression help in conjunction with the proper diet and exercises touched on in other articles.

Okay, I have to stop friends, why? Because there are TONS of verses you can draw spiritual strength and help for depression from. They are best personalized to make them work effectively as depression help tools for your situation.

Moreover, borrowing from my previous article on using Yoga for depression help, why not try affirming some of these words mentally in the wonderful and exhilarating corpse pose?
Remember though, as powerful as these verses are, to derive the best results, ensure to include the other limbs of drug-free healing exercise and diet in regards to a successful depression help program.
