John’s Wort, the Most Powerful Natural Antidepressant

Depression is a serious medical condition that is manifested by increased depression, sadness, discouragement and deep chronic pessimism, all associated with anxiety and low general tone and resistance. Depression is the most common mental illness worldwide and it ranks second in the hierarchy of all diseases after hypertension.

Normally depression requires depression treatment and medication but long experiences have found numerous natural antidepressant preparations and John’s wort (Hypericum perforatum) proved to be the most effective. Recommended since the XVI century by chemist Paracelsus against fear, sorrow and ugly dreams, John’s wort is beneficial in restoring hormonal balance and the nervous system. Drink as many as 2-3 teas a day before meals and one before bedtime. Tea may be replaced by St. John’s wort tincture (4-10 drops, 5 times a day), in a long-term treatment or with St. John’s wort oil (1 teaspoon, 2-3 times a day). Remember, this is not a quick weight loss diet, it is a diet that will heal you.

Recent research has shown that St John’s wort contains a high dose of hyperforin, a substance that blocks those receptors in the brain that trigger depression. St. John’s wort is beneficial in treating symptomatic and reactive depression, neurotic depression and in neurovegetative dystonia. It was found that the antidepressant action of St. John’s wort takes effect 2-3 weeks after starting administration.

Following the photosensitizer effect of hypericin (an active principle of St. John’s wort), precautionary measures are required, the patient will avoid exposure to intense sunlight throughout the treatment.

Therapists developed various complex recipes, besides St. John’s wort, that include other plant species: Hawthorn, thyme, mint, forest peppermint, valerian, balm. Essential oils are also effective separately or in blends of lavender, basil, sage, rose, jasmine, ginger and marjoram, pollen and propolis, calamus and sea-buckthorn fruit cure, fresh celery juice cure, spinach and green barley.

Amazon John

Amazon John, also known as John Easterling, is an entrepreneur responsible for the creation of Amazon Herb Co., a company specializing in fruits and herbs found in the Amazon Rainforest. However, you may know Amazon John best as Olivia Newton John’s husband. He holds a degree in Environmental Studies from the University of North Carolina and has spent many years in the Amazon learning about the medicinal properties of naturally occurring plant life. Amazon John is also interested in rainforest preservation, preferring to responsibly harvest plant life to keep the rainforest around for decades to come.

A lot of people see these new products and think they are a waste of time. That is why Amazon John helped to create the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine. This organization was started in order to begin studies on the various types of herbs and plants found not only in the Amazon, but around the world. Amazon John even presents his findings occasionally at this college, and expects feasibility studies with doctors from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine as well as the mayo clinic. If these feasibility studies go well, he hopes from funding from the National Institute of Health. With these kinds of big names in the health world working alongside Amazon John it will soon be impossible to write him and his products off as wishful thinking.

Amazon John is all about giving people choices when it comes to their health.  He supports acts passed by Congress like the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act that help to provide education and information about little understood supplements which will help people to improve their health. These kinds of acts protect consumers and Amazon John not only complies with, but celebrates those sorts of regulations. The only thing you have to lose is your chance at better health. Give Amazon John a try.
