St. John's Wort - Hypericum
St. John's Wort is quickly emerging as the most effective natural treatment for depression. Medical studies demonstrate that often a natural herb "Hypericum perforatum" is as effective in treating depression as prescription antidepressants. Hypericum is inexpensive (about 30 a day), available without a prescription, and free of the side effects often associated with antidepressant medications. Hypericum is derived from St. John's Wort (wort means "plant") and has been used for thousands of years as a medicine.

Beat Depression With St. John's Wort
by Steven Bratman, Paula Lee
Paperback (1997)

The author, Steven Bratman, MD, 1997
A balanced, comprehensive look at this popular treatment.
St. John's wort has recently become one of the most popular alternative treatments, and for good reason. The science behind this herb is unusually strong. In fact, it nearly exactly matches what was known about Prozac at the time that drug was licensed. This book goes into all the research to date, accurately pointing out the strengths and weaknesses of the many studies that have been performed. It explains just exactly what situations in which it is appropriate to use St. John's wort, and gives exact dosages and side-effects. It dispells common myths as well, such as that this herb is an MAO inhibitor, and that it can cause photosensitivity. If you want a sensible analysis of whether this herb can help you or someone you know, read this book.
