"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

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