Collection: Depression

Depression is a mood disorder marked by persistent feelings of sadness, loss of interest, and a lack of energy.

Natural medicine, including exercise, herbal supplements like St. John's Wort, and dietary changes, may offer some relief from depression symptoms by promoting serotonin production, improving sleep, and fostering a sense of well-being, but their efficacy can vary.

Consultation with a healthcare provider is essential before considering such approaches.
