Caution: Some herbal remedies (st.John's wort) have been shown to help with some forms of depression, for example. The main problem is to have the right diagnosis and then having someone who's knowledgeable monitoring progress and watching for possible side effects. If you ask physicians, we will always favor treatment under a qualified health care professional. It's just the safest alternative.

Classical Homeopathy: Consulting a well-trained classical homeopath could help with your mood problems. This involves an interview lasting 2-3 hours, in order to understand your issues and how you experience them. From this, the homeopath can select the most applicable homeopathic medicine to catalyze a healing process in you. Follow-ups are needed to assess progress and make any necessary changes.
