In Order To Find The Perfect Antidepressant: Get Your Hands Dirty While Gardening!


There is a small bacteria called mycobacterium that people who are suffering from depression, anxiety, or other similar issues, should know all about. Scientists claim that this – and maybe other microorganisms – has a comparable positive effect on humans as pharmaceutical have. However, it is important to mention that the negative side effects, observed with regards to pharmaceutical, are not included in the case of this bacteria.
Start getting your hands dirty in the compost or topsoil while gardening. The only thing you need is to get into direct contact with the soil or even just breathe the air around it.

The microbes found in the soil have similar effects on the brain as antidepressant medicines have, but without creating a potential chemical dependence. You can become happier and healthier by using this 100% natural antidepressant. Dirt can bring happiness in your life. The natural effects of the soil bacteria can be noticed for up to 3 weeks, or at least that was what rat experiments have indicated.
People have been using natural remedies for centuries as cures for physical pain and even mental and emotional afflictions. Even if historically people couldn’t explain why a natural remedy worked, they still observed the changes it brought and used it as often as necessary.


There is a proven link between soil microbes and an improvement in human health. The substance’s name is mycobacterium vaccae and it generates serotonin production, which influences you to be relaxed and happier. All research was conducted on people who suffered from cancer and they reported that they were less stressed and generally had a better quality of life. Serotonin is important because the lack of it can trigger anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive behavior and bipolar problems.
People interested in gardening will often tell you that they find happiness while doing that, but now there is also scientific evidence behind it, thus adding credibility to their claims. Currently mycobacterium vaccae is researched in order to see if it has any influence on cognitive function, or if it can improve health for people suffering from Crohn’s disease and even rheumatoid arthritis.
