St Johns worth has good results for moderate depression,Imnot sure about anxiety but as it works as an ssri Id guess it might be good for that too.You cant take it with certain meds though so be carefull. Its also takes about 2 weeks to have effect. Lily
I have tried both st johns wort and valerian root. St john's wort just made me tired, and valerian root made mt head feel buzzy and gave me a headache. But I must say that i tried these remedies after having been on benzos and trying to get off.... they did not help me. But they might help you. Fair warning, tho: DO NOT take st johns wort if you take zoloft!!! They interact awfully. Good luck! - Blu
Thanks to both of you. I actually am not on any meds yet. Still weighing out my options. Would love to try natural remedies first.
Just made my first appt. with a naturopath so I hope that they can help. Not sure if they have experience with clients with depression but Dr. stated that she just took a class on neurotransmitters. So hope that it will be a success : )
