Anyone ever take Ginko Biloba or Saint Johns Wort?

I am pretty sure I have a mild case of depression. I wanted to try a natural remedy first and both of the above are listed as natural remedies for mild cases.

  • St. John's Wort and Fish Oil are a better natural remedy for depression. Fish Oil is also effective in treating PPD. I'd try one of those and reason with yourself, you'll get through it.

  • I tried St.Johns Wart after one of my son's was born because I had some post partum depression and it seemed to work for me.

  • Ginko biloba is more for mental clarity and improved thinking. I use this and I am having good results from it. St. John's Wort is more for mild depression and I have used it in the past and was helpful for me.
