Herbs For Depression - Herbal Remedies Natural
Antidepressants  
by Nick Mutt

People suffering from depression cut off all the interaction with the outside world
even with the nearest ones. Lacks of appetite or high appetite, low self esteem,
sleeplessness, weakness, fatigue are the symptoms that follow depression.

Herbal remedies for depression

Antidepressants are the most commonly prescribed drugs to treat persons suffering
from depression. But these drugs are not without side effects which sometimes lead
to secondary level of medication. Herbs offered by Mother Nature are very effective
in treating depression as they cure the roots of depression rather than the
symptoms. Side effects are also observed in herbal treatments but not that of
significant value. Still it is better to consult practitioners before going for herbal
treatments.

1. St John's wort, also known as Hypericum perforatum is a well known herb to treat
depression and anxiety. It is inexpensive and is easily available and also acts as good
sedative lessening the sleeplessness caused by depression.

2. Basil is a common growing Asian herb with lots of medicinal properties and that
also helps in stress reduction and lifts the mood.

3. Passion flower acts as a tranquilizer and calms down the nerves by reducing
anxiety and insomnia. This herb acts gently and can be given the preference
compared to the other herbs.

4. Gingko biloba helps in reducing the depression especially in the elders, whose blood
circulation in the brain is reduced. It acts as a good anti depressant and an anti
oxidant by increasing the blood flow in the brain and at the same time increasing the
memory.

5. Borage leaf juice is another natural anti depressant that effectively treats
depression. Being rich in Potassium it stimulates the glandular system and reduces
the feeling of sadness, melancholy and pensiveness.

6. Lemon balm due to its soothing qualities is used to treat depression like mental
disorders. It calms down the shattered nerves and helps in overcoming depression.

7. Rosemary, if used in sleeping pillows and baths has an excellent effect in alleviating
depression as it rejuvenates and infuses a feel good factor in the depressive person.

Apart from minimum side effects the herbal treatments are also very cost effective.
Some herbal treatments may demand much more time but weighing the pros and
cons the patience pays off at the end.

Depression can be stated as the sad
state of mind that arises from regular
worries, stress, tension and anxieties
from different spheres of life. Though
these are the basic causes, but other
causes like pregnancy, failure in
examination, serious disease or some
accidental events in the family may
lead to depression in some persons.

Consequences of depression can not
be overlooked as the depressed
person loses all interest in his life that
may lead to some suicidal attempts
and become totally an insane or
schizophrenic person.
