Even though I do not have PPD (can you when your children are 4 and 5) I was looking through the posts. I have battled depression and anxiety my whole life. Half my life (literally) has been on Anti-depressants. Finally, the side effects grew too much and my dislike for allopathic medicine developed as well. I tried St. John's Wort and a few other herbs.
My depression has been consuming me for months now. I was to the point that I was going to put my children in daycare/public school so they wouldn't have to be with me when I'm like this.
Over in PPD I saw several suggestions for The Mood Cure so I got it from the library. I got my supplements yesterday. I was one of the 10-minute cures they talked about. Within 10 minutes of taking 5-HTP I was smiling!!!! Per the book I am taking other aminos as well. I can't recall the last time I felt this good. And all within less than 24 hours.
I decided to mention The Mood Cure over on this forum since not everyone here trolls on PPD. Maybe it can help someone. It's not for everyone but battling depression is tough and doing so without allopathic meds or a kind doctor can feel insurmountable. Maybe this will help someone. :)
to all the mamas struggling.
