Tangerine essential oil is derived from citrus fruits and gets extracted through cold compression method.
More people are seeking alternatives to traditional mental health care and as a result, knowledge about the use of complementary therapies by people with mental illness is increasing – particularly for those experiencing anxiety and depression.
Numerous systematic reviews and research papers have been published on the effects of Western herbs, such as St John’s wort (Linde, Berner and Kriston Lin, 2008) in the treatment of depression, but Chinese herbs have received less attention.
The supplementary review located eight trials and positive results were reported almost universally. Randomised controlled trials (RCTs) of the treatment of depression with Chinese herbal medicine were located by searching all of the major Western bibliographic databases.
RCTs were evaluated using two rating scales: the Jadad criteria and the Downs and Black checklist.
It was not possible to combine results to present any meaningful statistics as the herbal formulae and control treatments used, trial duration, and trial design all differed to such an extent. Positive results were reported in all of the trials identified and in all but one of the systematic reviews, but despite promising results, particularly for Xia Yao San and its modifications, the effectiveness of Chinese herbal medicine in depression could not be fully substantiated based on current evidence. The extent to which the results of the study can be used to determine whether Chinese herbs caused reductions in depression (internal validity) or can be generalised to other groups (external validity) is severely limited due to a lack of detail in the research studies.

It is a traditional medicine for bipolar symptoms like depression, fatigue, anxiety and loss of appetite. Valerian RootValerian root is known for its strong sedative properties which can help calm the nervous system. A recent survey of women with depression revealed that there is a push for more “natural approaches” that match with the individual’s own values and beliefs. The aim of this paper was to assess the evidence on Chinese herbal medicine treatments for depression based on previous systematic reviews of trials in the Western literature.


Limitations in methods and reporting, however, make it difficult to draw any firm conclusions.
The effects of the herbal formulae were assessed in seven of the trials by comparing scores on the Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression (HAM-D) before and after treatment.

The frequent mood swings can be awful for the person going through them along with those who live with him or her.
CAM (complementary and alternatives medicines) are also something people turn to when they are unhappy with their existing care – users are more likely to have received mental health and primary care treatment and to be dissatisfied with their overall healthcare when compared to non-users. A variety of herbal formulae (combination of herbs) were investigated including Hypericum (St John’s wort) and Xia Yao San. In addition to her clinical practice Jessamy is co-authoring a series of self-help books and contributes to various magazines.

Patty Mitchell August 2, 2013 at 12:59 pm ReplyI think my son of 39 years of age has bipolar. The omega-3 fats in fish oil raise the level of calcium available to the neurons and it is the calcium that lowers their excitability (raises their trigger threshold). I like nobody really understand why the mood swings, why the episodes & I do not want to take medication for these problems. Meditation on a regular basis, primarily the transcendental meditation or TM technique, has helped me more than anything else. I feel as though I have a week or so of normal behaviour then all of a sudden i get angry adjutated and its taking a massive toll on my relationship. I feel i want to be on my own, I have all these things going round in my head but cant focus on one thing, I feel tired a lot and have no willingness to go out or do anything. I feel when someone is talking to me there are a thousand voices all at once n i just want to scream! He wakes nice, then instantly starts screaming and throwing things as well as calling me names.
