Hey people. I know there's already a thread for the alternative menstrual remedies, but I thought maybe this one could just be about pre-menstrual depression remedies (and also why noby uses the term catamenia! Did it fall out of use?)

Anyway this is my natural depression slaying army:

Vitimins taken separately:

- Vitimin B complex
- Vitimin E 100
- Vitimin K2
- Iron and Vitimin C
- Flaxseed Oil

I have also cut out dairy a lot but mostly at catamenia time, and I drink loads of water anyway. Excercise and Rest - I'm trying...lol

I also have the two Herbal mixes - drops - from Jade & Pearl - 'Ebb and Flow' and 'Moon Tonic'.

And I made Heather's Magic Tea Idea by ripping open teabags and using the leaves. Unfortuntely, there isn't one of just ginger, only Cardamon, ginger and something else, and the strawberry leave comes with orange...hopefully this isn't reducing it's effectiveness?

Just wondering if the herbal stuff may actually work, and is there anything better for monthly depression, feeling panicky and out of control?

I saw someone on here mention St. John's Wort, is this a good idea?

If more people used the term catamenia, Lunapads could make a pad with cats on! Go Catamenia! [Big Grin]

Hehe yes!! It's from 'On the Rag - The Rag when it's a Drag' http://www.scarleteen.com/article/body/on_the_rag_a_guide_to_menstruation

Right at the bottom is the recipe for Heather's Magic Tea. [Big Grin] It tastes amazing! I know it's for regularity not depression, but it's a rockin' brew!

You know, I wrote that so long ago, I completely forgot. I'm delighted and tickled to know you're making my magic tea and even calling it that. [Smile]

We need to get it sold in shops as that! [Big Grin] (Nice independent shops of course).
