Big worries for small minds - managing childhood depression
All children can feel a little insecure and may worry about certain issues in their personal lives. In fact, worry is a routine emotion at particular developmental stages for children. Their emotions can go through ups and downs in the normal course of events. From worries over imaginary monsters to the older child who frets about the opinion of other kids at school, these general issues cause mild agitation for a child that can in turn result in larger parental concern.
Children generally have a natural and resilient reaction to most of life’s hassles. However, some children may be more bothered by particular mishaps that might seem rather insignificant to other carefree and easygoing kids.
But there is a vast difference between normal childhood worries and childhood depression. Depression in children is not always as easily diagnosed as teen or adult depression and can be masked. Children who are depressed do not always look sad and 'down' all the time, but may have other persistent symptoms that indicate that there is a problem.
If you suspect that your child may be suffering from depression, it is always best to consult a psychologist for diagnosis and to determine the underlying causes of the depression. Children and especially pre-teens who talk about suicide should always be taken seriously. It is always better to be safe and have your child properly assessed.
Never discontinue prescription medication without first consulting your doctor or a health care professional who is experienced in natural medicine.
The natural way
Many doctors and psychiatrists prescribe synthetic antidepressants for children with depression or other developmental disorders. While these medications certainly do have their place, they are often overprescribed, without first investigating more natural and equally effective alternatives. Often the drugs cause more complications that add to the problems of the original problem.
A lot can be done to improve the symptoms of depression naturally and prevent age-related depression or mood swings from taking their toll on your child and your family. It is a good idea to keep your child’s mind functioning at its peak by serving a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables and whole grain foods, ensuring plenty of fresh air, sunshine and regular play or exercise.
Early years are the years to be enjoyed, as they are full of fun and excitement. Childhood is the time to be a free spirit and take a happy-go-lucky approach to life! Keep your child’s mind as active as possible – children should enjoy life to its fullest and find things to laugh about every day!
Growing up should be a natural process and worry free! Natural remedies have been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years to gently and safely support the healthy functioning of the brain and nervous system, helping to encourage a normal and efficient balance of children’s emotions.
In more recent times, research has confirmed this traditional wisdom. There are now many published clinical studies demonstrating the ability of a range of herbs to act in a supportive capacity to promote balanced mood and feelings of calm and well-being (e.g. Cauffield JS, Forbes HJ. ‘Dietary supplements used in the treatment of depression, anxiety, and sleep disorders’. Lippincotts Prim Care Pract. 1999; 3(3):290-304. and Hubner, WD. & Kirster, T. Experience with St John's Wort (Hypericum perforatum) in children under 12 years with symptoms of depression and psychovegetative disturbances. Phytother Res. 2001 Jun;15(4):367-70).

How has MindSoothe Jr. helped others?
MindSoothe Jr. has relieved depression symptoms for many children. Here is what some parents have to say:
“I am overjoyed, as the parent of a 10 year old girl, to find an herbal product that has made more of a difference in her mood than the prescription anti-depressant she was on. For no apparent reason, a couple years ago she started crying a lot and feeling sad. She would dwell on things that worried her, such as the possibility of her brother going away to college, her dad getting sick, etc. Nothing could console or convince her these things were not happening. We tried Lexapro, and it worked fairly well for about 11 months, until she developed a "tic" and had to stop using it. Fish oil helped somewhat after that, but not that much. Then I found MindSoothe Jr. From the very first dose, I noticed a definite improvement; she was able to play happily by herself and be content. She even talks about how much better it makes her feel. I simply cannot believe the difference. My happy little girl is back, and she doesn't stress as much about school. Doctors should somehow be made aware of this amazing product. I can't say enough about it. A prayer has definitely answered.”
- Karin, TN, USA
“I have a child with autism and the doctors recommended that I put him on prescription anti-depressants. One recommended Wellbutrin and the other said that Paxil would work, but I am not in favor because my child is only 6 years old. We have used the MindSoothe Jr. for a few weeks and I just wanted to inform you that he is much less restless and seems calmer than before, making it easier for me and my wife. I also notice that he does not flap his hands around so much and he used to pick at his skin which is much less now too - only when he is very tired.”
- Danny, CT, USA
“Thank you for recommending MindSoothe Jr. for my 10 year old daughter. We were both going through a difficult time after my divorce and I was literally tearing my hair out with her, yet knowing that she was hurting like I was. I noticed that she was much calmer from the first day. She has been taking MindSoothe Jr. for about 6 weeks now and I have my sunny, happy girl back again!”
- Jeanette, USA
“Thank you for making this wonderful product. My daughter is a sweet and loving little girl who had a lot of problems in social situations. She said people made her nervous. She would then act out in such a way that I would want to hide and cry. I knew she was a wonderful little girl but everyone around thought she was horribly misbehaved. She would yell at me whenever I asked her to do anything, she always had to have her way and it was wearing me down. Thankfully, I found Native Remedies and MindSoothe Jr. It took about 2 weeks but I have a totally different little girl. I can now ask her to do things and she does them with little or no argument. She still has her moments but they are few and far between. Thank you!!”
- Jennifer, FL, USA
“Concerned about our son's wild behavior we checked into natural remedies, the first product we tried had no results after 3 months, then I purchased Focus Formula and MindSoothe Jr. a few weeks ago. It arrived within a week and within 2 weeks the changes in my son have been outstanding. We recently had parent teacher interviews at school as his teacher was shocked by the changes in him. He went from being below average in most things to above average within a week, he also started listening 75% of the time, rather than the 1% of the time prior to using your products. We are extremely happy that you are able to ship to Canada. You have given my son a chance to show his true self, and we are eternally grateful.”
- Amanda, Canada
“My six year old son was diagnosed with ADHD in November and put on Ritalin. The Ritalin made him 100 times worse. Because the Ritalin had such a bad effect on him, he was then diagnosed with bipolar disorder and put on many different medicines. I was very alarmed about the side effects (my son gained 20lbs. in a month). Then my 4 year old was diagnosed with ADHD. His doctor was fast to prescribe meds. I knew not to make the same mistake twice. I decided to try herbal meds. My six year old is taking Mood Tonic and MindSoothe Jr. My 4 year old is taking Focus and BrightSpark. What a difference in my sons. The herbal [remedies] have helped my sons a great deal.”
- Maryann, NJ, USA
“Wow, what can I say about this product and all of the other products this company makes? I buy Mindsoothe Jr. for my son. He has depression, anxiety, mood swings, anger, OCD and many other ailments that my husband and I have self-diagnosed. I do not believe in putting a 5 year old boy on anti-depressants, but if I did not find this product, I would have had to. My son's moods grew to be so bad that every little thing we asked him to do was a MAJOR battle. My husband and I felt so sad. What could we do for this child? He was suffering so greatly. He couldn't sleep, his anxiety levels grew and grew, he hated school, bedtime, bath time, and the list goes on. So, I went online, searching for answers, then I came across this site. Let me tell all of you that wonder if these products are for real. I now buy Mindsoothe Jr., Mindsoothe, Detox-Drops, Serenite Jr., and more from this company!!! They are reputable, they are real... and YOU will benefit from them! Now, my son gets off the bus from Kindergarten smiling, happy and screaming to me, "Mom, I'm so happy!" What a beautiful world you have made for me and my family, Native Remedies! Thank you SO much!”
- Amy, MN, USA
“I wanted to write to say thank you so much for the efficient and speedy delivery of the order I placed with you from the UK on Monday of this week It arrived yesterday, Wednesday. My son, who is 12, is very anxious and a terrible worrier and has been unable to sleep until very late at night for weeks on end, worrying about everything. I bought him the Mindsoothe Jr. and the Serenite Jr. and last night he had his first really good restful night's sleep in I don't know how long. This morning, he was much happier than I've seen him in a very long time. The products seem to have worked miracles, so thank you very much indeed.”
- Caroline K., UK
“I started my 10 year old on MindSoothe Jr. two months ago, and he is feeling so much better. His depression and anxiety are gone. He remembers to take it every day because he knows it makes him feel better. Thank you for your products!!”
- Candi C., MN, USA
“As a mental health practitioner parents ask me for information to research. I will give your address to concerned parents. It gives them hope and keeps the control where it should be…with the parents and ultimately with the children as they strive to be successful. There are many parents who are willing to try safe, alternate options to help their children. Best Regards!”
- Tom, Canada
“My six year old daughter was diagnosed as having OCD. Her doctor really pushed us to try her on Prozac, this wasn't an option for us. MindSoothe Jr. was our only alternative. I gave her 6 drops the first day and by the second dose she showed a positive turn-around. She has been using MindSoothe Jr. since Oct 17th, and is completely back to the little girl that she is. MindSoothe Jr. is our only option now, and we are so very proud to say that she is doing so well at her everyday adventures....Thank You, Native Remedies for offering this to us.”
- Debi, CA, USA
“My son has ADHD. He always struggled to complete his work and I think that he became depressed because he was always in trouble. We started him on your Focus Formula remedy which helped but he was still very angry and irritable with everyone. MindSoothe Jr. took away the irritability from day one and he is now doing very well at school and at home.”
- Malcolm, Durban, South Africa
“I want to say thank you for giving me my son back. He has been on Mindsoothe Jr. for only 5 days and I’m seeing impressive benefits already. What’s even better is he can tell a difference in himself as well. My husband and I were at the end of our ropes and we now have a peace in our home that we have not had in years.”
- Faith R., DE, USA
“We have had some amazing benefits from your products. My 11 year old step-son has struggled for years to find calmness and the ability to handle social situations. Your Focus Formula, MindSoothe Jr., and BrightSpark have made all the difference for him. He is happy, calm, concentrates in school, and is making friends. We have even started his sister on the MindSoothe Jr. to help her in school and have seen some great progress in just over two months. Thank you for providing a healthier alternative to parents. I feel relieved to have found Native Remedies. I believe in them and have seen the results. My step-son feels good about himself for the first time in his life. Thank you!”
- Deena, NH, USA
“I have to share the news about how the ComboPack of Focus Formula and MindSoothe Jr. This is the ONLY thing that works in a positive way. My daughter now sleeps at night - all night! The outbursts are finally under control. We can take her out in public without keeping our fingers crossed that she will be on her best behavior. For the first time, she has been in school for two months and has not been in trouble at all. She follows directions, stays in her seat, raises her hands and is FOCUSED and enthusiastic about her work. Her teacher considers her one of her best students. We NEVER thought we would see that day with any teacher. We have learned the importance of keeping her on a good healthy diet. We have eliminated eggs, fruit juices, punch and soft drinks completely. Even though we only served those in moderation, we had no idea just how much a little cup of apple juice contributed to the problem. We mix her Focus Formula and MindSoothe Jr. with a little cranberry juice. We also give her raw carrots or broccoli or celery for snacks. The combination of a healthy diet along with Focus Formula and MindSoothe Jr. has drastically improved her quality of life. It is the best feeling in the world not to have to get up at 3 AM and wonder why she is out of bed and what she is doing anymore. Now she is the first one to fall asleep every night! THANK YOU Native Remedies!”
- Mini J., NC, USA
“I just want to extend a heartfelt thank you to Native Remedies. Let me first start by saying that, never having a brother, I thought that our son's behavior was that of a "typical boy". We have a boy now 4 1/2 and a daughter 3 1/2. What really sparked us to start looking at … the differences in behavior towards activities such as coloring and making puzzles, detailed oriented vs. short spurts of attention… Native Remedies was "truly a blessing". We started our son on BrightSpark and Focus Formula, and within 7 - 10 days there was such a difference in our son: he was able to sit through an entire family meal (huge for us), his appetite improved, his sleep improved (he was always restless), and he was able to verbalize an emotion pertaining towards a song (I cried - he had never done this in the past). We have since made changes in food choices, scheduling of daily routines, and now include MindSoothe Jr., which has helped us all out. I now see our son take the time to think about what he wants to express, and that makes my heart sing. Thank you all so much. ”
- Renee J., USA
“I want to say thank you very much. I have my son back. My son is 11 and has only been taking Mindsoothe Jr. for 5 days and already I see impressive results, and he does too. We haven’t had this kind of peace in our household in years.”
- Robertaccio, DE, USA
