The Daily Express reports that two new studies show that people with depression can treat their condition just as effectively with natural remedies as with antidepressant drugs. The first study, published in the journal Biological Psychiatry, found that a combination of omega-3 fatty acids and uridine, which is naturally present in most foods, was as effective against depression as three of the leading antidepressants. A second study, published in the British Medical Journal, found that an extract of St John's Wort was actually better at treating depression than paroxetine. "
