Resilience: The Role of Botanicals in Mental Health
Mental health conditions are a significant public health issue. Since the 1990s, the prescribing of antidepressant drugs has steadily increased in the United States, even though the clinical efficacy of these drugs has been called into question for more than a decade. The benefits of these medications have been over-stated, leading clinicians to prescribe them for many patients who are unlikely to benefit from their use. An integrative approach, one that addresses all aspects of lifestyle, is far more likely to offer real solutions for those struggling with mood disorders. This session will explore the role of botanical medicine as one aspect of this integrative approach.
The webinar and white paper below will discuss relevant botanicals, including: Rhodiola, St. John’s wort, gingko, black cohosh, red clover, kava, lavender, and valerian.
