Try St. John’s wort

This herbal product is by far the most studied alternative remedy for depression, and for the most part the results have been favorable. In studies involving people with mild to moderate depression, St. John’s wort has consistently outperformed placebo, and it has held its own against prescription antidepressants. It has been shown to be similarly effective—and, in a few cases, more effective—than fluoxetine (Prozac), imipramine, and Celexa.
