https://drhedberg.com/herbal-medicines-for-depression-webinar/ Well, welcome everyone, this is Dr. Nikolas Hedberg, and tonight we’re going to be talking about herbal medicines for depression. A large number of Americans are taking antidepressants or some kind of medication for depression. I believe it’s getting close to about 50 percent of the population. So it’s a big issue, and I just want to shed some light on some of the causes of depression. We’ll talk about some of the herbs that can work well for depression. I’ll have some different nutritional and exercise strategies, so I think you’ll get some good ideas tonight about what’s best if you’re suffering from mild to moderate depression.
Okay, so I’m going to talk for a little bit, and once we’re done, and even during the presentation, you can type your question into the chat window and click send so I can see that, and I’ll be able to answer your question.
Okay, so of course the first thing we always do is we talk about the causes; any condition we’re talking about we want to focus on what’s actually causing the condition. And depression isn’t really the main thing that we’re looking at. Chronic inflammation; it’s interesting because the scientific literature is filled with papers connecting inflammation to all kinds of psychiatric disorders, especially depression. But the treatment really doesn’t focus on inflammation, even though the literature is filled with that as a causative factor.
