Question by AJ: Has anyone had relief from major depression by using herbal remedies?are they really strong enough to help?
Hi everyone,Does anybody out there use any type of herbs to treat their depression/anxiety?,does this stuff really work or is it just barely noticeable what if any help/relief they provide,I have used a lot of drugs in my lifetime and I mean A LOT,A-Z you name it I’ve done it,all the benzo’s,opiates,ssri’s are all addictive and only cause me more problems in the long run,I have exhausted everything there is except for herbal remedies,the only thing that has ever helped me is opiates but I just can’t keep on doing the stuff,it takes your life away and leaves you an empty shell,all those drugs like prozac,paxil,wellbutrin,blah blah blah have no effect on me and are completley worthless to me,I need relief from serious dark depression and crippling anxiety but I don’t want to do pills or dope and I hate smoking pot or drinking,there just seems to be no hope at all anymore,does anyone know of any mixture of herbs that has a fast onset that can bring a person some relief without all the addiction side effects?,,I fu****n hate drugs,I used to think that they were the answer but I’m old enough and wise enough to know that they are only adding to the problem which only gets worse day by day,I truly feel I’ve exausted everything,herbs are the only thing left,I should be so happy with my life right now,I’m marrying the girl of my dreams that I knew for sure did not exist,everything I ever wanted to acomplish I pretty much have,I should be so happy but instead I am perpetually in a dark place,I just wish I could feel happiness and enjoy all the things god has blessed me with.Please if you have expierience with taking herbs could you please post what they’ve done for you and how they make you feel,I have such serious doubts as to the power and effectivness of herbal treatments for depression,please if you can shed some light into my corner I am very greatful
I am greatful for all the fast replys,I can relate with everything everyone has said,I do understand the spiritual aspect of dealing with this problem,I was once a very spiritual person,I pray and do ask god for help and guidance,he has pulled me from the fire in some ways that are nothing short of divine providence and I say this with the utmost surety,but I really think I’ve got an issue that is not spiritual but chemical,I am a creative person(or was)I can be in bliss for an hour but then come down so hard that I wish I were dead,everyday is a mind numbing roller coaster ride and I’ve tried every drug there is to try and even myself out,both doctor prescribed and self medicated,when I found out I had a bulging disc in my lower back and was given an open script for opiates instead of them working on the pain they completely leveled me out,for the first time in my life I was able to actually do everyday normal things like everyone else,for the first time in my life I felt free
Everyones answers are all so good and helpful I cannot not choose a best one because they’re all good,I’ve been giving the st johns wort some thought but have my doubts about it’s strengh,I’m going to give it a go tho,I have nothing to lose,I am at that greatly anticipated crossroads in life,the old ways are fading away and all the things I dreamed of are coming true,I always thought I would be so ready and prepared but instead I am worst state of mind I could possibly be in,it’s just so confusing and dis heartening,I would say it’s not fair but I have nothing to weigh it against to say what is fair and what is not,thankyou everyone
