I have been trying this for a few months now. And ran out a few days ago. About three days ago. And today I woke up crabby and started screaming at my computer for the stupid crap the internet frustrates users with.
So I guess a few months of not stressing over the fact the internet has turned to a click bait pile of shit that promises shit it doesn’t deliver, after they get you to sign up and register for a bullshit article that doesn’t answer the main question in the headline.
I am seeing patterns emerge.
St John’s Wart is a herbal flower based pill that calms people with anxiety. After you take it for a few weeks it starts to calm you.
I was given a prescription for pharma based anti depressants, but they made me a zombie. I didn’t give them the chance they may have needed either. Why? Cause who wants to be addicted to big pharma pills that have worse side effects and withdrawal severity. If I need this shot to stay calm and manage anxiety, then I thought I should try something that might do the job without turning me into a prescription drug addict. That didn’t work out well for Micheal Jackson, Robin Williams, Prince or anyone I heard of who is still alive.
So I bought a big box of St John’s Wart on a Holland & Barrett half price sale.
Holland & Barrett sell a few versions of St John’s Wart. I bought the one which slowly releases it through the day, so you don’t need to take more than one daily. The usual type is meant to be taken 3 times a day.
At Holland & Barrett, the usual cost for the daily single pill was near 50 pence per dose. So half price is like 25 pence a day.
I don’t know what the big pharma zombie inducing drugs costs per day.
But aside from the costs per day, risk of addiction, changes in personality and the rest of the differences… I feel better now on St John’s Wart than I did on the other crap. And don’t worry as much about the risks of a herbal pill over the others.
What has your St John’s Wart experience been like? Leave a comment to let me know…
