Luckily there is one time tested medicine that has been helping mankind conquer the winter blues for 1000’s of years. And better yet, you have almost certainly heard of it before!! St. John’s Wort is a powerful herb that melts winter blues, as quickly as the sun melts the snow (which can vary depending on many factors :P) . In my experience taking St. John’s wort daily can really pull a Jackie Chan on those sad winter feelings.
Several clinical studies place St. John’s wort on par with the pharmaceutical equivalents. Individuals dealing with mild to moderate depression may be able to experience an alleviation of the winter blues, as much and perhaps even more so than prescription antidepressants, and without the same risk of side effects.
In fact St. Johns Wort is so effective that taking the herb with an antidepressant can cause an overdose, so don’t do it!!! St. John’s Wort also has the same effect with blood thinners like aspirin, so be aware.
When I was suffering with depression, I found a standardized supplement of St. Johns wort, immediately (within an hour) brought me a creative spirit I hadn’t felt in years, and I didn’t even expect that to happen.
Don’t take my word for it, St. John’s Wort has been used for literally over 1000 years, and has prompted millions, perhaps even billions to experience its amazing benefits over the decades.
