Over the last few years, a herbal approach to get relief from the symptoms of depression has received both critical and consumer attention in the western world: St. John's Wort.
As the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) has noted, St. John's Wort is an ancient herb that has been used to get relief from the symptoms of mild to moderate depression. Available in variety of forms, St. John's Wort has enjoyed popularity in the western culture for many years, and has found a following in the west, thanks to the growing interest in herbals and natural-based medicinal remedies. More information on St. John's Wort can be found on the NCCAM's Website.
The jury on St. John's Wort continues to be rather hotly debated. Since the publication of a British Medical Journal study conducted in the mid 1990s - a study that heralded the side-effect free benefits of St. John's Wort in the treatment of depression - there has been some growing concern that the ancient herb may not be as effective as widely believed. This concern led to a 2002 bulletin issued by the National Institute of Health warning consumers not to view St. John's Wort as a panacea for "curing" depression; especially major depression of moderate severity.
JoyWood has been created as an alternative, and an improvement, to St. John's Wort to get relief from mild to moderate depressive symptoms. Major constituent of JoyWood is Artemisia absinthium, commonly known as wormwood. An alcoholic extract of it was actually used in the 17th century by some of Europe's greatest artists and intellectuals "inspire their thoughts" and restore their creative passions. In clinical studies, JoyWood proved to be more effective with higher acceptance rate than St. John's Wort, and that depression associated with anxiety and environmental stress responded better to JoyWood. JoyWood's antidepressant activity is most probably based on its antiviral properties.
There is an increasing evidence that a virus (called the "Borna Virus") may be the cause of some common depressive disorders . Almost 20-30% of the population is infected with this virus, and this percentage corresponds to the prevailance of depression in general population. Other types of viruses such Eppstein Barr virus and hepatitis virus may also contribute to depressive disorders. It is believed that the virus probably attacks the axons of peripheral nerves, as well as the central nervous system. The virus then reaches the lymbic as well as the hypothalamic regions, where it distorts Neurotransmission. Ultimately, this distortion adversely affects the natural equilibrium of the nervous system resulting in symptoms of depression. JoyWood's proven antiviral properties are apparently able to target this virus and diminish its impact.
Yet what makes people excited, and indeed optimistic about overcoming depression, is that there are no known adverse side effects associated with JoyWood and it is completely devoid of any disturbing sedative effect which usually accompanies many antidepressants.
For decades - centuries, even - depression has not been well understood. Though placing blame is usually not a healthy thing to do, this is an exception because by and large the root of the neglect has been within the conventional medical community.
"Depression" was often seen as a fictitious personal problem, rather than a clinical, chemical, and indeed possibly viral ailment. As a result, many people experiencing depression were forced to suffer quietly and alone.
Thankfully - one might say mercifully - this is rapidly changing. The entire credible medical community has accepted depression as a legitimate and very serious health problem. And as a result, an unprecedented amount of resources are currently being applied to find a "cure for depression".
Ultimately, that perfect cure may never come to light; depression is a complex ailment that encompasses biological and psychological systems. However, this is no cause to be upset or pessimistic. Rather, this is a time of fresh optimism. Treatments, remedies, and techniques are asserting themselves in the marketplace, inviting people to see the proof in themselves of depressive disorder relief.
One of these positive and optimistic aids
for depression - which has been clinically
tested and scientifically validated - is JoyWood.

Note: JOYWOOD, like St. John's wort, should not be used in severe psychotic, paranoid forms of depression, for example when suicidal thoughts are present. It should never be replaced or taken instead of an antidepressant already being taken, as prescribed by a physician. Any other medication prescribed by a physician should not be stopped and replaced by JoyWood. Remember JoyWood is not a cure for depression, but can aid significantly in reducing the symptoms associated with depression.
