• A comprehensive guide to the use of St. John's wort and other alternative therapies for treatment of depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders
• Offers a comprehensive look at St. John's wort--the most significant natural remedy for depression--including its history in herbalism, current clinical uses, safety, and side effects
• Discusses other natural alternatives such as Kava, Melatonin, and 5-HTP as treatment options to depression
In the early 1990s the sale of Prozac exceeded the sale of all other antidepressant drugs in both American and world markets. But today St. John's wort is recommended 3 to 1 over Prozac as a primary treatment for depression in European countries such as Germany--and its sales continue to skyrocket in the United States. Safe, all-natural, and less expensive than synthetic drugs, St. John's wort is the ideal natural therapy for many people's depression, anxiety, and other related mood disorders.
The Prozac Alternative offers a comprehensive look at St. John's wort, including its history in herbalism, current clinical uses, and safety and side effects, as well as how it compares with other natural alternatives such as Kava, Melatonin, and 5-HTP. It also discusses other uses of these natural substances as treatment alternatives to Western medicine for a variety of medical conditions.
