The World Health Organization estimates that 80% of the worldâs population presently uses herbal medicine for some aspect of primary health care. Many places in the world donât have a barrage of drugs to choose from, but have learned the value of natural cures for depression.
How important is your food? VERY important! Until you change your diet, and stop "poisoning yourself" with processed foods and the toxic products you wear and use, you'll still experience less that well being. Depression is a result of many external factors, but many times, when a daily diet is changed from "junk to nutrients," it is radical for improving mental outlook.
Many people are convinced that herbal treatments donât work as well as chemical medicine, but thatâs simply not true.
The chemical compounds in plants that focus their effects on the human body is the same process and is identical to those already well understood for conventional drugs. Herbal medicines donât differ greatly from conventional drugs in terms of how they actually work.
Herbal remedies can be just as effective as conventional western medicine and therefore, they have the same potential to cause side effects.
Always purchase your herbs from a knowledgeable source.
To be blunt this is a lot of biased rubbish. Countries that use herbal remedies do so only because they cannot afford real help, anti depressants. The placebo effect is thier best "drug".
The only herbal treatment that has any anti depressant action is St John's Wort and that is only for very mild depression. And never to be mixed with meds.
Yes, food is important. Obviously. We hasve to eat to live. But tell me how do these poverty stricken peoples eat well enough to avoid depression. ALl they can afford is subsistence food, no protein, nothing useful except filling the stomach.
You are trying to make a poverty stricken diet sound like it is a solution. I can tell you how many of those poor people would prefer their current diet to Western diets. None. They eat what they must, that's it.
The WHO is simply being realistic and recognising the povert factor. It proves nothing at all except the poverty stricken eat worse food and diets than we have available.
Herbal treatments DO NOT work as well as anti depressants. Clinically proven many, many times.
List the herbal treatments which are better than anti depressants, don't just make sweepingly ignorant comments as you have. Tell us the magic potions. Dare you.
And you conclude by saying always purchase your herbs from a knowledgable source. With what money do the poverty stricken achieve that Sojac?
And list some "knowledgable sources so we know who you are talking about. I'm guessing you are one such source, right? Got your own web site too I would suggest.
