Yes there are many ways to uplift your mood and naturally treat your depression.

Eating healthy is first and foremost way which can help in uplifting mood in general, there are some foods that can help with serotonin, the chemical in the brain that contributes to “happy.” Foods that can help get rid of depression are Fish-oil, food that are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids , healthy fast for e.g. coconut oil, Flax seed oil, Sour Cherries and eggs. 

While there are many health benefits of Coffee that we all are aware of, but depression and coffee doesn't mix well. So avoid coffee if you are going through any sort of depression or if your mood is low. 

I know it would be shocking to some of you if I recommend you to drink Green Tea as it also contains caffeine, but it has one other extremely important constituent: L-theanine. L-theanine works synergistically with caffeine to boost mood in such a way that you don’t get the same crash-effect.

Mediating is another one of the best way to release your depression naturally. Regulate your breathing, and attempt to let go of your thoughts. I am sure it will be very beneficial for those wanting to get rid from their depression prescription medications.

Try acupuncture. Acupuncture therapies makes you feel calm, happy, and relaxed, and many people say this feeling lasts long after the session is over.
