Differential Treatment of Depression and Anxiety with Botanical and Nutritional Medicines
It seems almost everyone in our country is either depressed, anxious or both. We live in a very stress filled society and the mainstream solution is to take a pill. What if you don't want to take an SSRI or anxiolytic medication, what if you understand that mental health is more than a deficiency or excess of neuro-chemicals. In this class we will discuss the causes of depression and anxiety, and how mild to moderate cases can be effectively treated using the appropriate herbs. The common misconception that St. Johns wort or any one herb is the "depression" herb is ridiculous and we will look at the specific indications of emotional dysfunction and the specific remedies to treat them.
