SAD Syndrome: How St John's Wort Can Help This Winter.

What is SAD Syndrome?

SAD Syndrome - affects most of us in the colder months.  Mainly during our winter seasons when there is less sun, the days are shorter and the nights longer.  Because of the lack of sun one could suffer from depression and similar symptoms.  Studies done by SADAG (South African Depression and Anxiety Group) show that 74% of South Africans suffer from loss of productivity and concentration due to depression. 

How Does It Affect You?

This condition can be crippling for those that suffer from it as it affects certain neurotransmitters, like those of serotonin and melatonin.  Serotonin is a well-known mood stabilizer that impacts every part of the body, from your emotions to your motor skills. It helps with sleeping, eating and digesting and helps reduce stress, regulate anxiety and heal wounds. Melatonin on the other hand is a chemical with in the body that adjusts its internal clock which regulates the night and day cycles.  This means that at night the body produces more melatonin, which signals the body to prepare for sleep.

Here are some useful tips to help you manage SAD:

  • Increase the amount of light in your home. Open blinds, add skylights and trim tree branches that block sunlight.
  • Get outside. Walk outdoors on sunny days, even during winter.
  • Exercise regularly. Physical exercise helps relieve stress and anxiety, which can accentuate SAD. Being more fit can make you feel better about yourself.
  • Find ways to relax. Learn how to better manage stress.
  • Create a sun-room. If possible, create a warm room with lots of light and green plants that you can sit and relax in.
