Many mental health issues start with an imbalance in hormones and nutrients, or from underlying systemic infections and inflammation. It’s not “all in your head.”
Brain health begins with total body health. Psychiatric drugs do not make you healthier, and often have negative side-effects. They can and do sometimes help control symptoms which can be important, but if we can test for and get to the root cause of the symptoms and treat that, sometimes psychiatric medications are no longer necessary. Some people will continue to need to take medication for their condition but many will not, or may be able to get by with fewer drugs and/or lower doses, which improves quality of life.
