Ok, you're depressed because
you're sick all the time - in fact the sickness causes depression.
You surely need something for relief but please think it through carefully before
embarking on a course of Prozac.
The Australians amongst you will know of the Port Philip Bay massacre - the killer was on
Prozac at the time. Michael Hutchence of INXS was also on Prozac at the time of his
suicide. Read the book reviews - I will add more on this topic as I find it.
In the meantime, please consider the natural alternatives - St
John's Wort or even Kava.
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 1990's 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.
The drug Prozac, while useful for millions,
supplements a process that occurs naturally in all humans. In this book, Norden, a pioneer
in developing applications for Prozac, looks at natural processes to supplement or replace
the drug in the treatment of depression. By allowing for our natural cycles and mental
needs, we may be able to increase our mental health naturally.
The author also looks into other new anti-depressants which may offer advantages
over Prozac in the treatment of depression.
