"This little book not only offers an elegant therapeutic tool for a common problem, it also serves as a prototype for a more humane and enlightened way of dealing with health and illness that is both new and ancient. " Rudolph Ballentine, M.D., author of Diet and Nutrition: A Holistic Approach Mild and moderate depression affects millions of Americans. If you suffer from depression yet feel uneasy about taking prescription drugs, or if you are currently taking one like Prozac, you should know about St. John's wort, the natural alternative. This book details how to use this powerful yet gentle herb, which has been proven in clinical tests to relieve mild and moderate depression with fewer side effects (and at a lesser cost) than any prescription antidepressant. St. John's wort does not cause drowsiness, interact with alcohol, or interfere with one's ability to concentrate or dream, as do some prescription drugs. In fact, St. John's wort has been shown to enhance the brain's problem-solving capabilities. Nature's medicine, St. John's wort nurtures the mind-body's own healing response instead of suppressing it, as do the harsher drugs made in laboratories. Known to traditional herbalists for centuries, St. John's wort is currently prescribed to millions of Europeans and has been the subject of numerous clinical trials in Great Britain. Americans are just beginning to realize the efficacy of this natural antidepressant, which is widely available at health food stores and by mail order. With simple instructions on dosages and who should and should not take the herb, this book tells you everything you need to know about St. John's wort in order to use it safely and effectively.
