The Prozac Alternative: Natural Relief from Depression with St. John's Wort, Kava, Ginkgo, 5-HTP, Homeopathy, and Other Alternative Therapies

• A comprehensive guide to the use of St. John’s wort and other alternative therapies for treatment of depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders

• Offers a comprehensive look at St. John’s wort–the most significant natural remedy for depression–including its history in herbalism, current clinical uses, safety, and side effects

• Discusses other natural alternatives such as Kava, Melatonin, and 5-HTP as treatment options to depression

In the early 1990s the sale of Prozac exceeded the sale of all other antidepressant drugs in both American and world markets. But today St. John’s wort is recommended 3 to 1 over Prozac as a primary treatment for depression in European countries such as Germany–and its sales continue to skyrocket in the United States. Safe, all-natural, and less expensive than synthetic drugs, St. John’s wort is the ideal natural therapy for many people’s depression, anxiety, and other related mood disorders. 

The Prozac Alternative offers a comprehensive look at St. John’s wort, including its history in herbalism, current clinical uses, and safety and side effects, as well as how it compares with other natural alternatives such as Kava, Melatonin, and 5-HTP. It also discusses other uses of these natural substances as treatment alternatives to Western medicine for a variety of medical conditions.

Covers a whole range of subjects from depression, herbs and the health food industry, prescription drugs, St.John’s wort, homeopathy, kava, Fish Oils, B vitamins, DHA, and more. The research is great. Everything here is carefully footnoted and the author makes certain that the reader gets a good understanding of herbs and their biological effects. Over 200 Endnotes.

    Ran Knishinsky has created a very thorough reference books here! Each subtopic is carefully explained and the alternative therapies are explored and explained in a way that makes so much sense. I recommend this book to people I know who are wrestling with the ravages of our stressfull lives. The site, PapaNature, corroborates Knishinsky’s documentation and offers enough high-quality choices for all of the products mentioned in Knishinsky’s book. PapaNature has links to textual documentation as well as good service and diverse products.
