According to Ayurveda, depression is generally a Kapha imbalance.  Too much Kapha in our systems causes us to feel sluggish and slow.  We lack motivation and that get-up-and-go feeling.  Springtime is Kapha season, so we are all a little more prone to excess Kapha at this time of year.  Kapha also brings with it more congestion, and environmental sensitivity like allergies.  To help balance Kapha, exercise more vigorously.  Avoid oily, heavy foods, dairy, nuts and sweets.  Add more spices to your diet and favor foods that have the taste of bitter, pungent or astringent.  Balance Ayurvedic makes an herbal formula called AyurRenew which is helpful in relieving depression.
