It is not the place of this website to advocate treatment that should otherwise be directed by one’s provider.

For medication, there are clinical trials by corporations and meticulous oversight from governmental agencies. Thus, there is no need, nor reason, to post independent studies on approved medications

There is a website detailing clinical trials on medications

Otherwise, Mayo Clinic has been personally recommended to me by a long-time psychiatrist with several Ivy League college degrees. In essence, it contains all of the relevant information you’ll need as a patient of psychiatric pharmaceuticals.

Personal reviews mean little. Even 1,000 reviews means little. If you doubt that trials for pharmaceuticals are rigorous and of adequate time, please visit Medication: Discovery to Distribution. You’ll find that 100’s of millions of dollars and about ten years go into one medication approval.

As for herbal or otherwise quite natural remedies, no rigorous trials exist. The “why” is simple: it’s not profitable enough.

There is nothing wrong with posting studies on natural remedies that have something of a name for themselves. I offer no medical opinion, just a summary of the main findings on aromatherapies.

My method was simple. Google Scholar offers studies to sift through. It is what I used to compose a profile of the studied benefits of the aromatherapy agents listed below. Three long sections are taken to include these studies.
