Abstract:

The Oceanic region is a botanically-rich area comprising four main regions; Australia, Polynesia, Micronesia and Melanesia. Recently, a review was published that describes several region-specific plants significant in the treatment of depression. Traditional medicines are largely overlooked as treatment options for depression, despite being extensively recognized as effective alternatives. In fact, the use of the Polynesian Kava Kava plant is one of the best known and well-documented examples of Oceanic medicinal plants (Cock and Cheesman, 2016). Despite this, most work concentrates on Asian traditional medicines and plants due to their extensive, recorded use over a long period. Nevertheless, Oceanic plants offer great therapeutic alternatives and the authors highlight some major plants specific in the treatment of depression. Read more . . .
