Dr. Mercola recommends treating depression with the natural herbal remedy St. John’s Wort. In addition, he recommends warding off depression by eliminating stress through exercise and counseling.
Dr. Oz’s Bottom Line:
- Major new research shows that we don’t fully understand how SSRIs work to treat depression, and that they may not be as effective as talk therapy.
- Severe depression may still require medication to get you on the road to recovery.
- People with mild to moderate degrees of depression are overmedicated in this country and should seek out alternative solutions.
