Depression is not a Prozac deficiency! As a functional medicine psychiatrist, I was really excited when Sean Croxton of Underground Wellness told me he was going to host the Depression Sessions. It’s goal is to bring to public awareness the root causes of depression as well as treatments that not only won’t mask the symptoms, but actually get to the root cause. And even better, he invited me to be interviewed on how to get off of antidepressants safely, and specific nutrients to take instead.
ow that depression is more a symptom than a diagnosis. It’s a sign of imbalance in biochemistry, caused by any number of factors that we can determine, and can often correct, using the right approach. Causes can be genetic (as in methylation problems, pyroluria, etc), thyroid or other hormonal issues, toxicities including heavy metals, infections such as chronic viruses, stress, poor diet,or blood sugar imbalances. In fact, whatever can upset the rest of your body functioning can affect your brain, as well.
Drugs used to treat depression have side effects, some quite serious, which you will hear about on my session as well as on Dr. Jillian Teta’s, and we tell you how to get off the medication and offer safe, effective natural alternatives.
My friend and thyroid expert, Dr. Izabella Wentz will be giving detailed information on how low thyroid and autoimmune Hashimoto’s thyroiditis can affect mood and, sadly, is often misdiagnosed and treated with strong medications that have no chance of repairing the problem.
A fave of mine, Dr Datis Kharazian will cover insomnia, it’s relationship to depression, and how to remedy it.
My good friend Trudy Scott will be discussing the use of targeted amino acids for both anxiety and depression.
Then there’s the most articulate Dr Kelly Brogan on the inflammation that underlies depression and how to treat it.
In fact a whole bunch of my favorite people who are both friends and colleagues will be presenting and I can’t wait!
