Anxiety, Depression and Stress

There are various and very individual reasons for feelings of depression, stress, and anxiety.  Some are more "world-oriented", meaning that living in this day and age is just downright too fast, stressful and nerve-wracking, which can lead to anxiety, depression or feelings of hopelessness.  Other reasons can be more personal and individual in nature.  As someone who has benefited greatly from therapy, this is what I of course would recommend first and foremost, but there are also herbal allies that can effectively help support you and your nervous system.

NATURAL REMEDY FOR DEPRESSION

There has been much in the news lately about the risks of anti-depressant use during pregnancy, being linked to autism and birth defects.  Researchers in JAMA Pediatrics reported that "children of women who took anti-depressants during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy were 87% more likely to develop autism than kids born to women who didn't take the drugs."

Really, any pharmaceutical medication comes with side effects and many are not safe during pregnancy and breastfeeding.  But there are natural alternatives.

Testimonial

I think what I'm most pleased with was the effectiveness of the Poke Root Tincture. It stopped a breast infection in under 24 hours! Absolutely amazing!  Best of all, I didn't have to use antibiotics like I had in the past when I developed mastitis while nursing my first son.  M.S.
