In reply to Before Maois Was there any Tx for Depression?, posted by Phillipa on August 24, 2012, at 15:50:42
Before meds, plant medicines were mainstream medicine. Not much profit there though. When drugs were invented, the profits pushed plant medicines into the background. Not that they were more or less effective than meds, just that there wasn't as much profit in them. There are some common ones most people have heard about, for depression. There are many uncommon ones too. Some plant medicines for psychiatric symptoms have track records going back 2000 years and literally hundreds of scientific studies on them.
