Project Description

(Hypericum perforatum). I was extremely happy to find this herb growing wild here in the French Pyrenees, while on our mountain hike.

The aerial parts of this beautiful plant is used medicinally to help with depression, anxiety and good for patients who are emotionally stressed too. It helps raise serotonin levels.
I use this herb in my clinic as a proven remedy for many patients with viruses, especially enveloped viruses such as herpes that causes cold sores.
Other viruses treated well with this herb are shingles and hepatitis.
Can be beneficial for sleep with as a nervine tonic.
St Johns wort can be applied topically as a cream for an anti microbial effect.
