Top 3 over the counter pick-me-up remedies

The herbal supplement St John’s wort has well documented antidepressant properties but the downside is you have to wait for around six weeks before the effects are felt. However, clinical trials have found that the addition of passion flower speeds up the process so that improvements can be felt after as little as two weeks.

1. St John’s wort with Passionflower

You can pick up this supplement from most good health food shops and it is usually priced at around £12 for 30 capsules.

2. Les Fleurs de Bach ‘Depression’ Elixir

This is a blend of organic flower essences which lifts the mood with it’s combination of seven wild flowers. The remedy can be taken any time you feel you need a little pick-me-up. Simply pop a few droplets into a glass of water.

3. Yantra Mat

This acupressure mat is covered in 210 spiked flowers designed to stimulate your body’s acupressure points which, according to Traditional Chinese Medicine, are where energy accumulates. Putting pressure on these particular areas will help to relieve stress and tension and improves the flow of energy throughout the body. Use for 20 minutes every day.

Purchase this acupressure mat on Amazon.
