I have to start by saying I am not a health nut I am not that person who believes essential oils and mediation is going to help me I m far too impatient and not gullible enough f Ugh How to review a book that says so many things you want to support but for all the wrong reasonsI m so many things you want to support but for all the wrong reasonsI m positively 100% in favor of attempting a lifestyle based cure for what ails you Start there Especially if you are American Our nation has gone completely off the rails when it comes to medicating This isn t even remotely at uestion I simply suggest that you choose a different guide I borrowed this uite fascinating and enlightening For a nonfiction it is very readable and practically helpful I had already given up dairy for two weeks before starting it and had seen a remarkable improvement in my allergies Now after reading this book I m taking my allergy testing seriously and have given up wheat and sugar and flouride toothpaste and am drinking filtered water And am going to bed at 1000 pm I m very thankful for this book Different people will get different things from it as she covers a multitude of problems with antidepressants statins and many other medicines I ve been trying to get off SSRIs for years I think I ll finally be able to Everyone should read this book This book uite literally changed the trajectory of my family s health I stumbled across this book seeking answer If you have ever taken medication for anxiety or depression if you re currently taking them or if you re considering taking them I strongly urge you to read this book I have been struggling with Anxiety And Depression For About and depression for about months now and it is one of the most physically and mentally painful and debilitating things a person can experience But I am here to tell you and so is Dr Kelly Brogan that anti depressants are not always the answer Despite what pharmaceutical companies would have you believe we don t actually now how the brain works and the effects anti depressants have on it These are essentially chemicals that we think help despite the fact that many people who are on anti depressants never actually get better If these medications are supposed to work then why are and people taking them but not becoming happier people The answer is most likely this chemicals aren t the answer because overall health and wellness is Essentially avoiding toxins and chemicals heals us A balanced diet and exercise are essential We are created to eat natural foods that nourish our bodies How can we expect our minds and bodies to function efficiently if #what we are feeding it is so processed it s essentially # we are feeding it is so processed it s essentially longer even food Please friends do yourself a favor and find out what you can do to give yourself a chance to defeat anxiety and depression without buying into the idea that you have a disease that can be cured with chemicals Lots of what seems like good evidence for the link between gut health and mental health but I am left with a lot of uestions about how solid her research is The author s credibility is strained by what I think are some pretty over the top claims about lack of effectiveness of pharmaceuticals such as statins new article in the NEJM just validated their effectiveness in preventing heart attack and stroke even for those who are not high risk toxicity of vaccines hello haven t we already been through this lack.
