Re: anyone use natural anti-depressants? [Re: DudeTron]

81, thanks for the suggestions.  I'll get some Kava Kava to try out when I hit those really low times.  I'll do a bit of research on the others you provided.

dudetron, how do you take the valerian root?  I've used it for dreaming before in pill form but I don't think it was strong enough to produce any anti-anxiety/depression effects, although I never really was awake after taking it so I can't say for certain.  I have 100mg pills.  Do you use the actual root, and if so what is your method of preparing it?

We're lucky and bought it from a local natural food type store as dry valerian root.

She made tinctures after grinding the root and let it sit in 150 proof alcohol for two weeks.
You can obviously affect strength by using 99% alcohol and tincturing longer.

The recommended dose for drowsy effects is about 15 drops in warm water or tea.
The quality of your root and other factors are very likely to alter your potency.  I would suggest finding a specific recipe of extraction to produce more consistent and known results.

I'd also imagine valerian's dose for treating depression would be less.


It's less effective, but possible to make an infusion (tea) with it. Might also be a more appropriate dose for depression though.

I looked it up a couple days ago and valerian would probably suck for depression...  It's been noted for anti-anxiety use though...

My girl just suggested skullcap for depression... It can be made into a potent concentrate similar to the valerian like I described above with the tincturing... 

Good luck fox
