Hello Kimba,

Saint John' Wort is a herbal supplement which has been tried in cases of mild depression and anxiety and you can find out more in the link given below.

You may find this link below also very useful.

Complementary and Alternative Medicines

But please note that there are not enough evidence to say that they are useful for treatment of anxiety and depression.

For treatment of anxiety disorders, if you don't want to go for medicine, another very good option is to go for psychotherapy such as Cognitive BehaviorTherapy which you may discuss with a clinical psychologist near you.
