A now famous Harvard study finds our minds negatively wander about 50 percent of the time, and the stress that results from this type of mind wandering can lead to digestive disorders, short-term memory loss, premature coronary heart disease, heart attacks and despair. At the same time, antidepressant usage has skyrocketed and doctors are now prescribing antidepressants for non-depression diagnosis such as anxiety, sleep and increased mental focus.
The Herbal Pharmacist, David Foreman says this is troubling since antidepressants also carry the FDA’s most stringent “black box” warning for life-threatening adverse effects. Foreman says the risks associated with antidepressants for many of these health complaints outweigh the benefits, and there may be more effective ways to tackle stress, mood, focus and sleep from nature’s pharmacy before pulling out the prescription pad.
