just seen a very interesting programme on the use of st johns wort(hypericum)for depression.they ran trials with people taking s j w,and some taking the usual antidepressants,neither group knew which they were taking.the results showed high sucess rate with s j w,as opposed to conventional medicine.maybee its worth a go.

i always wanted to try this but couldn't as i am taking anti-depressants and it can be harmful if taken both together. If anyone isn't on meds then its got to be worth a try hasn't it.

I hust read about a study too where they actually had better results with s j w than with conventional meds. But again like jools said you can't take it if your already on meds as it can be harmfull.

i used to take it and it does perk up but i takes a while to get into the system. it can apparently make your eyes very sensitive to the sun so i've read. and it knocks out antibiotics too. so if you do decide to take it, always tell your doc.
