Definition


An antidepressant is a molecule that goes against the depressive state. A natural antidepressant is part of the category of alternative medicine and promotes the well-being of people suffering from mild depression. Plants like St. John's wart, rhodiola, and Bach flowers alleviate fatigue, anxiety, or insomnia. Relaxation techniques such as yoga, light therapy, or acupuncture can permit a person with depression to regain balance. Physical activity and a balanced diet are also considered natural antidepressants.
