D.C. residents who take hemlock and hyssop have significantly lower rates of anxiety and depression than those who don’t, according to a study published in the journal Health Psychology.
The results suggest that the hemlocks and hyessop can be a powerful and effective way to treat mental and physical disorders, said lead author Dr. David Gershman, a psychiatrist at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
“We found that hemlocked herbs are more effective at reducing stress than other herbs and that they may help people with psychological and psychiatric disorders,” Gershi said.
“People can take them daily, even as part of a routine lifestyle, to improve their mental health and reduce their anxiety.”
The study involved nearly 400 people who reported being hospitalized for a variety of mental health problems, including anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Participants in the study took the heiflocks and the hyessops daily for four weeks.
The herbs were taken twice a day for a total of three weeks, and participants completed questionnaires about their mood, mood swings, and symptoms.
Participants who took hemlines reported lower levels of anxiety than those not taking the herbs.
Gershi and his colleagues compared the results to those of a group of people who had been taking hemline-containing products for about a year.
The participants who took the herbs also had significantly lower levels the anxiety and depressive symptoms.
The researchers concluded that heifls and hyesops can help treat depression and anxiety.
“Hemlocks are known to help alleviate depression, anxiety, and anxiety disorders,” they wrote.
“Hyesops may help relieve depression, but its not clear whether they may also be helpful for other mental disorders.”
The researchers suggest the herbs may be particularly effective for people who are suffering from post-disaster stress disorder or who are struggling with post-depression symptoms.
“This study suggests that herbal remedies that can be taken daily may have beneficial effects in treating post-conflict stress disorders,” said Gersha.
“Additionally, the herbs can be helpful in reducing anxiety.”
