“The greatest medicine of all is teaching people how not to need it. “Hippocrates

It is estimated that over 44 million Americans suffer from mental disease and half of all adults will struggle with mental illness during their lifetime. Depression and anxiety are the most common diagnoses. Women are twice as likely as men to be diagnosed. One in seven women are medicated for depression and anxiety and 1:4 of them are on medication by the time they reach their forties.

Conventional approaches to mental disease focus on imbalances of neurotransmitters with treatment involving medications to increase or decrease the abnormalities. For decades we have been led to believe this chemical imbalance was the cause of psychiatric disease and medicine the only solution. While there are certainly those who need medication there is growing evidence that these conditions are more the effect of our modern lifestyle being incompatible with our genes. New York Times BestsellerDr. Kelly Brogan states “Depression is not genetic, it is epigenetic”. Our lifestyle has been hijacked and our bodies and brains are rebelling. Our diet is filled with processed and inflammatory foods; our body lacks exercise and sunlight and is exposed to thousands of chemicals and stressors daily. Many of these triggers may be laying the groundwork for inflammation, nutritional deficiencies, gut inflammation and dysbiosis, hormonal changes and the activation of the HPA or adrenal stress factors in our bodies – all leading to mental illness.
