Unfortunately it depends on *why* you are depressed, your specific biochemical processes. St. John's Wort is only effective if you have the neurotransmitter imbalance that is helped with SJW. You really need to know what's going on to treat it naturally, but it CAN be done. I just don't want you to try the supplements recommended and feel badly that you didn't have success. Depression is an imbalance. But you need to know of what and everyone is different.
I can absolutely understand you wanting to get off meds. There are things you can do that would be beneficial to anyone (more time outside, exercise, better diet etc.) but even in that-the diet you need may be very different than the diet *I* need. You really need to customize your plan to get the best results. An ND would be great for this, as would a holistic health counselor with the right training. Best of luck!
