Hi everyone, I love this web site. My question is that I want to take St John's Wort because I feel a little depressed but on the leaflet it says it is contra-indicative to thyroid medication. can anyone advise me on this matter please.

thanks, and so glad there is a forum on here. I have just started studying TCM with an online course and loving it.
