It's so sad to see that so much of the first world populatiosn are so devastated by depression. I truly beleive that this mental disease could be completely controlled if our society were to place an importance on the very real need that human beings have to understand themselves mentally, spiritually, and psychologically.

valerian is ok if you want to relax the body, you can combine it with other plants that have similar effect if you really want to calm your nerves like lavander, the two are great options when dealing with stress and depression

DEpression can be so bad for our entire body and mind but it is also good to maintain a good flow of life and to be real, I think. But anything in excess can be really bad so it's always good to avoid depression and just maintain a small stress tention in our lives. Those herbs are very good to calm down the nerves I have found that by myself
