Topic: The Role of Herbal Medicine in Mental Health by Tieraona Low Dog MD
“Healthy Brain; Healthy Body: Mental Wellness in the 21st Century,” Spring 2010
Mood disorders, particularly depression, have a high rate of co-morbidity with both mental health and medical problems. Depressive disorders are common among patients with chronic medical conditions; even when appropriately treated, depression recurs in 50-70% of those affected. Given the side effects of conventional antidepressants, many patients turn to the use of dietary supplements in an attempt to improve their mood and prevent recurrence. Unfortunately, many patients do not disclose their supplement use to their provider, and most clinicians are not familiar enough with the evidence of safety and benefit of supplements to effectively counsel patients about their use. This session will update clinicians on the science regarding dietary supplements/botanicals commonly used for depression and anxiety.
