Hello, friends. This is a great Q&A where I take a look at two interesting questions relating to the use of St. John’s Wort for treating depression, and how to tackle sleep anxiety after recovering from an illness that has impacted your sleep patterns.
Hello, thank you so much for all the things you do! Sorry if this is inconvenient, but I don’t have access to a therapist in my area so I thought I might ask you. Like I said I can’t consult a professional and so it’s hard to get antidepressants here. However, I read that St. John’s Wort can help with mild depression. I was wondering if you’ve read any research about it or if you’ve suggested it to one of your clients before? Thank you.
Hello sir, I am from India. Recently recovered from flu, after that my sleeping pattern and anxiety killing me… Feels like gasping for air when i asleep.. Too much negative thoughts.. Even before, I had bad sleeping pattern.. Waking up in the middle of the night.. Help me sir.
From no psychiatrists or psychology in my area…. Still mental health considered as taboo
