Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to analyze the efficacy of an herbal approach for the treatment of depression. This study will include multiple different systems of traditional herbal medicine as well as modern scientific data to support their effectiveness. An analysis of different herbs and their bioactivity, chemical composition, as well as their historic uses will be used to support the herbal approach to treating depression. In all probability these herbal medicines should be effective in treating clinical depression, as they have been used for thousands of years to restore balance to both mind and body.
