Could drinking chamomile tea help you more then acupuncture with your anxiety & depression?

I find chamomile: Can help one to relax, fall asleep ; diminish anxiety. However, I have a number of psychiatric patients who use acupuncture instead of psychiatric medications with good results. Many mix acupuncture, medicine and some form of talking treatment. Acupuncture is good with depression but can be excellent when used as an adjunct for anxiety treatment.
