Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors cost the United States over $6,000,000,000 a year. There are many natural antidepressants that people do not consider before using prescription antidepressants. Weather or not we want to admit it, we are organic creatures. We come from nature and it only makes sense that to achieve happiness we need to be in balance with nature. As we consume food, we rarely consider ourselves natural organic bodies taking in each necessary vitamin and mineral.
When people state "its all in your mind," few of them actually realize how correct they are. Many of our neurotransmitters are made up of amino acids in our food. There are large sums of money protecting overpriced pharmaceutical antidepressants which frequently do not work as good as natural antidepressants.
Many of the synthetic antidepressants aim at manipulating some of your basic brain functions to change your serotonin levels. Of the pharmeceutical antidepressants commonly used many have insaine suicidal side effects (such as Paxil.)
Elevated serotonin levels are easily available at controllable levels without the side effects or price of the synthetic drugs. 5HTP is a natural antidepressant which elevates serotonin levels by providing the amino acids required to create serotonin.
Fighting Depression Outside the United States
If you go overseas many countries do not have the expensive pharmaceutical antidepressants that we posses in the United States. Many of the countries offer natural antidepressants at a discounted rate to these synthetic drugs. While reading a book by Hyla Class MD I found out that over 80% of German depression cases were treated with natural antidepressants.
