Approximately 20 million adults in the U.S. suffer from depression each year. About 1 in 6 American adults have had a serious episode of depression at some point during their lifetimes, according to statistics provided by the National Institute of Mental Health.
Dr. Zhang a former scientist for herbal pharmacology and a doctor in Chinese medicine created the formula. The Mood & Fatigue Formula has been tested over 10 years in clinical practice with hundreds of patients with depression and chronic fatigue; The formula has proven extremely effective with no side effects.
Michael Teruya, an architect, wrote: ÂI have suffered from depression for a year and had been taking several different medications. Dr. ZhangÂs Mood & Fatigue pills instantly improve my outlook on life & I feel much happier & positive about everything.Â
Joan Kerrigan Âhad suffered from depression since [she] was 14 years oldÂ She began taking HERBALmaxÂ Mood & Fatigue formula, and for the Âfirst time [she] did no suffer from seasonal depression.Â
The Mood & Fatigue formula is made from pure Chinese herbal concentrates.
Scientific data indicates that people suffering from depression have imbalances of natural substances (known as neurotransmitters) that allow brain cells to communicate with one another. Some scientists think that low levels of one these neurotransmitters, serotonin, in the brain may contribute to the well-known symptoms of depression.
Prozac was the first of a class of drugs that was developed to treat depression. These so-called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIÂs), work by raising levels of serotonin circulating in the brain. Since Prozac first came on the market in 1988, other similar drugs have been developed including Zoloft, Paxil, Celexa, and Effexor. These drugs have become enormously popular yet extremely controversial.
In recent years the use of SSRI drugs has been increasingly challenged because of safety concerns of these potentially hazardous drugs. In February of 2004, the British government banned SSRI use in children. In March of 2004, the FDA required that these drugs have labels warning that these anti-depressant medications can cause deepening depression and even suicide. It also noted other possible side effects including hostility. Coupled with other well-known side effects of common anti-depressant medication including weight gain, sexual dysfunction, and sleep disturbance (either insomnia or excessive drowsiness), it is not surprising that consumers are increasingly turning to herbal alternative approachesÂincluding traditional Chinese MedicineÂfor the helping of mood and fatigue symptoms.
Herbs have long been a mainstay of Asian health care. Perhaps the first herbal medicine book to refer to depression and its treatment, ÂJin Gui Yao LueÂ, was written by a Chinese doctor in the 3rd century A.D. This formula and its underlying theory of the origins of depression have fluenced generations of practitioners of traditional Chinese Medicine. Few people are aware, however, that Chinese scientists, such as Dr. Zhang, continue to develop the modern science of herbal medicine.
Dr. Zhang has authored over 30 scientific articles as well as two books. Her comprehensive textbook, Complete Guide for Identifying and Characterizing Chinese Herbals was named one of the best scientific books by the Chinese Government when published in 1992. Dr. Zhang was also awarded First Prize for her research from the Chinese government in 1992. In 1994, Dr. Zhang arrived in the United States to receive her Best Paper Award from the First World Traditional Medicine Conference.
