Common Questions and Answers about Depression treatment herbal


Avatar f tn I was wondering if anyone has used herbal remedies for the treatment of mild Anxiety? I am considering trying an Herb for my anxiety but I have read about so many herbal treatments that I don't know which to choose. I have read about valerian, passion flower, ashwaganda, and chamomile and they all seem to be pretty effective. Has anyone had success with this form of treatment?

I’m not saying everything is bad, but it is a risky chance that you could do more harm to your liver by taking something that has not been tested for safety and efficacy. Remember that testimonials, Petri dish, and mice test results do not always equate to humans with HCV. Everyone here remembers how scary it was when they were first diagnosed. Ask questions, do your homework and if it sounds to good to be true…..
Avatar m tn You do a (medical doctor's) sanctioned treatment and obtain viral clearance through that method. There is NO Herbal TREATMENT that will clear your body of Hepatitis C. It does not exist no matter what snake oil salesperson may try and tell you.
Avatar f tn It only gets worse when paired with sleep deprivation. I was able to get away with herbal treatment but antidepressants would have been the next step.KEEP YOURSELF AND YOUR BABY SAFE!!! Let me know if you wanna talk.
Avatar n tn On the other hand, if it's not in good shape, you might want to formulate a treatment plan soon. As far as treatment is concerned, some of the drug companies have financial assistance programs. Also, many of the larger teaching hospitals run trials where they pay for the cost of your treatment. But your first step is to find out what is going on with your hep c and the rest of your health problems. Once you know that, you can make a more informed decision how to proceed.

885961 tn?1249583403 Can anyone tell me what causes this, I have a lot of stress in my life now and my husband is dealing with depression and anxiety also. I have tried herbal rememdies for depression but have never felt comfortable with the anti-depressant route because I dont want to risk the side effects and the one time I did try one it put my mind in such a numb state I felt like I couldn't think at all and functioning at work was horrible.
1462810 tn?1327364049 I refused to take the doctors advise to stay away from herbal concoctions as treatment of hbv. My viral load was well over ten million, a worse case as far as the severity of infection. Luckily I had no damage and my liver health was excellent. After researching for alternative treatment options, I found a few, imemented them and 2 years later my viraload is only 253! The doctors were surprised but for some reason not inquisitive o.
Avatar n tn How do I know that treatment is actually working? 2. If treatment is working, how long until I am well again? 3. Will the anxiety, depression, and mind set get better with treatment? 4. Is there anything else I can do to speed up the recovery process? 5. Is it safe to take adderall? Seems to be the only thing that seems to give me energy.
Avatar m tn I didn't use acupuncture, but did use a couple of different Chinese herbal combinations while on treatment. I don't promote the idea because I don't know whether the herbs helped or hindered the tx. It was my choice and I took the risk knowing that if I messed something up, I had no one but myself to blame. The guy who formulates the stuff has been doing this for decades, doesn't make outrageous promises, and his other formulas do what they're supposed to and have never affected my ALT/AST.
Avatar m tn I have been living with depression for three years now. I’ve lost interest in everything. This anxiety and depression is driving me crazy. I don’t sleep well too. I wake up with headache, blood pressure and many other difficulties. I just want help for this from anyone who have experienced this in their life. Will any stress disorder treatment in Toronto like CBT Associates help for this? I have almost ruined my life with this behavior. Can anyone help?
Avatar m tn he started with the worst situation for interferon, such high hbvdna and hbsag have no hope on interferon mono anyway addition of alinia reversed anything i think that as shown on hcv trials alinia is able to restore interferon response and improve it, this is something we do need on hbv treatments because hbv can stop both our body natural interferon and the injected interferon and make it totally useless
Avatar n tn My Cardiologist states that either RF Ablation with pacemaker implantation or the Maze proceedure are currently the only possible treatment options left. Do you have any information regarding herbal remedies? I have heard about CoQ-10 and some Chinese Herbs have had some success in this area. I want to exhause all possible options before I am forced into retirement.
Avatar n tn 7, 1995 while undergoing my annual stress test. I had started Prozac (depression) on Nov. 11, 1994. Holter Monitor, 12 Led EKG, Treadmill Stress Test, Echocardiograph, Blood Test, Neurology Exam ALL NEGATIVE. Rythmol, Sotalol, Amiadarone and most recent Tambacor have negative results. My Cardiologist states that either RF Ablation with pacemaker implantation or the Maze proceedure are currently the only possible treatment options left. Do you have any information regarding herbal remedies?
Avatar n tn I don't want to stop my tx (I'm week 39 now) although the psychiatrist suggested that. I'll finish my treatment and then I'll see how can I get with my depression. For me depression and anxiety was the worst side effects I've had. I'm from New Zealand, f,37, interferon+ribavirin. Good luck and good healh.
Avatar f tn I believe that there is no magic pill that we can ingest to cure depression. I believe in a holistic treatment system with all forms of self care being prescribed. It took me years to accept this way of life as I was a bit lazy in my younger years. But now that i can see things with more perspective than I realized I really have to treat everything not just one part of the problem when I am depressed.
Avatar n tn There is depression involved with any step-off, but I think you are confusing *normal* healthy depression with the clinical one that we have...I don't think you have to worry about it. Again, good luck!
Avatar n tn I had a major depression with obsession/compulsive "confessions" for about 3 weeks when I was 11 and pubertal (no treatment) and another, with anxiety (again no treatment) at age 18 that lasted about 9 mos. Since then I have been chronically mildly dysthymic I believe, for most of my life, but no major symptoms. Family Hx: I did have grandmother who had a psychotic depression and an uncle who was hospitalized once for depression as an adult.
1365060 tn?1279882030 Find out specifically what the herbal medicine you are taking and that seems to be working for you, is used for. Is it only used for the treatment of depression in general or leans toward a specific psychological condition? I know this seems like a lot and there could be an easier way to find a solution to your dilemma but this is my advice to you. Remember I am not an expert in this area. Just take from my advice what you want and leave the rest. God Bless.
Avatar m tn John Wort numerous times... everybody says thats suppose to be the #1 natural / herbal pill for depression. But its NEVER worked for me. Evening Primrose Oil works in an amazing fashion for me. EVERY single time. I had a really bad bout last week... starting taking Primrose Oil, and I completely changed around for the better almost instantly Would love to hear other peoples thoughts on this. Even 500 MG's a day is nice too. But 1000 MG's a day, you'll definately notice it.
3199802 tn?1362254159 therefore, how could either one help?! Has anyone ever used any herbal meds for depression and/or anxiety without any presciption ones? I have triex all the OTC for sleep and it has not worked Anyway thanks for listening and responding!!
Avatar n tn Try acupuncture treatment for relaxation. It has worked for me in the past, along with herbal medicine (chinese medicine).
