Homeopathic spray, formulated and produced under the guidelines of the homeopathic pharmacopoeia of the US from research-grade St. John's wort, works fast to provide relief for moderate to mild depression.

Hypericum is Hypericum Perforatum, also known as St. John's Wort (St. John the Baptist, not the Beloved). It is a short, yellow-flowering, wild-growing plant — healing herb to some; troublesome weed to others. It has a 2,400-year history of safe and effective usage in folk, herbal, and ancient medicine. Hypericum was prescribed as medicine by Hippocrates himself.

A series of recent double-blind, placebo-controlled studies indicate that a specific extract of Hypericum perforatum was as effective as prescription antidepressants but had far fewer side effects (thus available without a prescription for the treatment of mild to moderate depression) and cost considerably less — about 25 cents a day.

In Germany, more than fifty percent of depression, anxiety, and sleep disorders are treated with hypericum. Prozac has two percent.
