"We were concerned about the possible side effects of prescription anti-depressants. Our son's psychiatrist recommended Paxil® for his anxiety, but we have read that there are many side effects with it, including suicidal thoughts in teens. We searched online for a natural non-prescription cure and we found a site recommending your product. Our son has been using Seritol for 6 weeks now, and the improvement in his behavior and mood is truly incredible. Thank you for this wonderful product!"

      Learning About Depression and Anxiety

Depression can affect anyone.

Everyone has times when they're feeling down. If you have depression, this sad mood along with other symptoms can last weeks, months, or even years if not treated. Depression isn't a sign of weakness or a character flaw. It's a real condition, but there are ways to successfully treat depression in a natural manner.

More people suffer from depression than you might think. Depression strikes people of all ages, backgrounds, and ethnic groups. Depressive disorders affect about 34 million American adults. Nearly twice as many women as men are affected by a depressive illness each year.

Symptoms of Depression

Depression is a common condition with very specific symptoms. Depression symptoms might be different for each person.

The term depression refers to a lasting sad mood and/or loss of interest or pleasure in most activities.

Sometimes people experience several or all of these additional symptoms:

  • Changes in appetite or weight
  • Changes in sleep patterns
  • Restlessness or decreased activity that others notice
  • Loss of energy or feeling tired all the time
  • Hard time concentrating or making decisions
  • Feelings of worthlessness or guilt
  • Repeated thoughts of death or suicide
To be considered clinically depressed, a person must have five or more of these symptoms and at least one must be either of the first two main symptoms of depression. Also, these symptoms must last for at least two weeks. The symptoms should be serious enough to cause worry and to get in the way of the person's work, social life, or daily life.

Depressed people might also have problems with digestion, such as dry mouth, nausea, constipation and, less commonly, diarrhea. Being worried, anxious, or irritable all the time could also be hidden signs of depression.

Anxiety Disorders

Anxiety isn't a sign of weakness. It's not all in your head. It's a real condition which requires attention. There are many types of anxiety disorders. More than 19 million adult Americans ages 18-54 have anxiety disorders. These disorders affect people in different ways through a wide range of symptoms.

There are many types of anxiety disorders:

  • Social Anxiety Disorder
  • Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Panic Disorder
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Social Anxiety Disorder

If you have social anxiety disorder, you often get very nervous around other people. It feels like everyone is watching you and judging you. You're afraid of making a mistake or looking like a fool. You'll do anything to keep that from happening. You might even avoid certain people, places, or social events. Social anxiety disorder affects over 16 million Americans. Social anxiety disorder can happen to anyone. Often it starts in the mid-teen years.

Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

If you have posttraumatic stress disorder or PTSD, you have lived through, seen or heard about a horrible or traumatic event. It made you feel scared, helpless or shocked, and you can't seem to get over it. The stress of a traumatic event causes chemical reactions in the brain and even physical symptoms. You might have nightmares. You might feel that the event is happening all over again. You might be jumpy and tense. You might even stay away from people or places that remind you of the event. PTSD affects over 8 million Americans. It can happen to anyone after a serious trauma. The signs of PTSD might not appear right away. In some cases, they show up months or years later.

Panic Disorder

If you have panic disorder, you suffer from sudden feelings of extreme terror. These are called "panic attacks." They could happen at any time. You might feel like you're in great danger or even think that you are dying or going crazy. You might worry about having an attack in a place that's hard to get out of. This can make you afraid to leave home. Panic disorder affects over 4 million Americans. Anyone can have panic disorder. Sometimes it runs in families.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

If you have obsessive-compulsive disorder or OCD, you're overwhelmed by disturbing thoughts you can't control. These are called obsessions. To get rid of these thoughts, you might do certain things over and over again, like check to see if the stove is turned off or wash your hands. These are called compulsions. If you don't do them, you feel that something bad will happen. You know it doesn't make sense, but you can't change this unwanted way of acting or thinking. About 1 in 50 Americans, as many as 5 million, have OCD at some point in their lives. OCD can happen to anyone. OCD usually starts in the teen or early adult years, but children can have it, too. OCD starts earlier in boys than in girls. In adults, men and women are affected in equal numbers. Sometimes OCD runs in families.
