Herbs helpful in case of depression

  • Saint-John wort is the most recommended herb for depression. More than 30 studies have shown that Saint-John wort obtain excellent results with fewer side effects than standard antidepressant medications. And it costs less than these drugs.

Lemon balm: Lemon balm treats multiple symptoms throughout the body. It has notably been proven to be effective again depression by several studies.

  • Lavender has long been used by herbalists as a treatment for anxiety, nervous exhaustion, and depression. It also has been demonstrated by studies to be as effective as the antidepressant drugs, without the side effects common in drug treatment (dry mouth, weight loss/gain, low blood pressure, and reduced sexual function).
  • Sage is an useful herb to alleviate depression symptoms. It is also slightly sedative light lavender, and is a good alternative to lavender.

Recommended combinations:

  • if the depressed person feels abnormally fatigued or lethargic: Saint-John wort and/or Lemon balm.
  • if the depression induces restlessness, irritability and inability to sleep: Lavender or Sage. Contrary to the two previous herbs, Lavender and Sage have sedative effects.

In each case, you can alternate between both herbs mentioned to avoid that the body get accustomed to one herb.
