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. In Hypericum & Depression, two noted psychiatrists report on research that could change the way depression is treated in America explaining what depression is, how to know if one is depressed, the medical effects of hypericum on depression, and where to find research-grade hypericum (noting that not all hypericum supplements are alike). Hypericum & Depression is enhanced with summaries of selected medical studies on the effect of hypericum upon a state of depression. Hypericum & Depression is "must" reading for anyone with an interest in alternative medicine and/or who suffers from chronic depression. -- Midwest Book Review
