Is there a natural way to balance the chemicals in a chemically unbalanced brain?

So a quick explanation and a bit of history about why I ask this question. Admittedly this question relates to myself, it's been a number of years since I last saw a physiological or a doctor so I expect the first reply to this question will be probably say "Go see a doctor".
I inherited a brain with a distinct lack of Serotonin and as such my days are up and down. As a teen I took generic prozac but found that it made my mood and general self grey. As are most teens doing something they don't want to do, they don't do it...
I stopped taking the medication and dealt with the depression my own way and that's the way it's been since. Over time I've gained an appreciation for natural health, I don't mean essence of lavender and such, but things as simple as vegetables and the vitamins and such they provide.
I've come to a cross road where I want to stick with my ideals of natural health and feeling better.
I realize it isn't an easy question or topic, but anyone with insight on any level would help.

    To be fit, smart, and energetic for more than 100 years old, we need do as instinctively as possible according to the following 4 points:
    (1) Eat Various Living Cells Only
    This is because our instincts or ancestors’ successful experiences determine us to eat this way.
    This way is conjointly regulated by the ultra-high accuracy and optimal points as mentioned above.
    Also, this way must be the concrete specific standards of the so called rational diet, balanced diet, or complete diet by doctors and nutritionists.
    (2) Exhaust Muscles in Nature Every Day
    This is because our instincts or ancestors’ successful experiences determine us to exercise this way, too.
    This way is regulated jointly by the ultra-high accuracy and optimal points as well.
    ....
    We have to exercise exhaustedly; otherwise, our muscles will gradually degenerate. This is the lesson taught in the biology at our junior high school.
    The degeneration of muscles will induce a lot of healthy problems. This is because of our body is a system of all its parts working conjointly and influencing one another closely with ultra-high accuracy and at their optimal points.
    (3) Be in Bed in the Dark All Night Long
    Our instincts of ultra-high bio-economics require us being in bed in the dark all night long. This is the lesson taught in the biology at our junior high school, too.
    ....
    (4) Seek Only Valid Happiness Lifelong
    Almost all of the troubles of in our life are caused by invalid happiness. Apparently, the really believing in all kinds of invalid happiness is harmful to us and quit them definitely will make us healthy and happy lifelong.
