FeelGood MindSoothe Jr is an all-herbal natural treatment for depression and anxiety.
The Natural Way:
“Many doctors and psychiatrists prescribe synthetic anti-depressants for children with depression or other developmental disorders. While these medications certainly do have their place, it is my experience that they are significantly overprescribed, without first investigating more natural and equally effective alternatives. It is alarming to see how many children are on a cocktail of prescription scheduled anti-depressants and psycho-stimulants. Often the drugs cause more complications than the original problem itself. The use of strong scheduled drugs for children also often replaces the proper assessment and the use of a complete and thorough treatment program for the child and the family. Fortunately, there are proven well researched natural alternatives to assist children with symptoms of depression, anxiety, anger and behavioural problems linked to depression.”

What does MindSoothe Jr. contain?
The ingredients in MindSoothe Jr. are well researched and have been shown to be effective in the treatment of depression and anxiety. Both are very well respected naturopathic herbs and have been safely used for centuries. Depression is often associated with an imbalance in certain neurotransmitters in the brain, especially serotonin. This is often caused by stress, but may also be hereditary or linked to disorders like Autism or other developmental disorders.
St John’s Wort, one of the principle ingredients in MindSoothe Jr. is widely used as a treatment for depression and other disorders associated with serotonin imbalance. It has been well researched and many clinical studies have demonstrated that it can be highly effective in the treatment of depression and other mood disorders.
Passiflora has been extensively used by naturopaths as a calmative and to reduce irritability, restlessness and anxiety. It acts as a natural tranquillizer, without further aggravating the symptoms of depression, which can happen with the use of some herbs like Valerian. The proportion of St John’s Wort and Passiflora in the remedy has been carefully calculated to ensure therapeutic dosage and maximum effectiveness.
Note: Natural Kids MindSoothe Jr. contains less than 1% pure pharmaceutical grade ethanol when diluted as directed
How long until I see results?
Mindsoothe Jr. contains two different ingredients, which act in different ways.
Passiflora takes effect very quickly, especially when presented in tincture form. You should notice that your child is calmer, less irritable and less easily frustrated.
St John’s Wort works by preventing the over-metabolism of serotonin and the effect is gradual, taking 3 – 5 weeks to reach its full potential. Within this period you should notice a gradual improvement in mood and behaviour, as well as concentration. It is important that Mindsoothe Jr is used regularly as recommended. Continue use for about 6 months and then gradually taper off over a period of about 3 weeks. If symptoms do not return it will not be necessary to continue treatment. However, should your child’s symptoms return when discontinuing Mindsoothe Jr., then it is safe to continue with the remedy as long as it is needed.
How long will a bottle last?
One bottle of MindSoothe Jr. should last 30-45 days
Never discontinue a prescription medication without first consulting your doctor or a health care professional who is experienced in natural medicine. Do not use Mindsoothe Jr. together with other prescription anti-depressants. If your child is very fair in complexion, use sunblock if there is excessive exposure to the sun as St John’s Wort can sometimes increase the skin’s sensitivity to sunburn.
