In Oriental medicine, most herbal treatments for depression are formulated to move energy ("Qi") that is "stuck" in the chest. Sounds unusual, but think about this...
Research shows that exercise using the chest muscles is often as effective as drugs to treat depression. You may have even noticed that it's hard to feel depressed while you're doing vigorous exercise.
My Patients often describe a "stuck" or "heavy" feeling in their chest when they suffer from depression. So...
...anything that helps move that stuck energy can help you recover from depression.
One herbal treatment for depression that works on many people in my clinic is called "Xiao Yao Wan" (that translates to "free and relaxed pill"... very appropriate for a depression remedy, don't you think?)
This herbal remedy works because it moves that "stuck" energy (called "Qi stagnation") that's at the root of most types of depression. It's commonly used in China.
It has many other uses, too, including PMS, certain types of headache and digestive disturbances that get worse with stress.
Xiao Yao Wan is available at Chinese markets, as well as many online sites (acu-market.com is a good, fair priced resource). A single bottle usually only lasts one week, so I generally recommend purchasing at least one month's supply.
If that energy gets stuck for too long, it will lead to not only depression, but also anxiety, panic and insomnia. So it's important to treat it as early as possible.
If those symptoms occur, they may require other herbal treatments for depression that target those additional symptoms.
