Anxiety and Depression affect millions of people. However, many of the medications recommended have a black box warning or medical warning indicating that the same medications that are used to treat depression may cause suicide. Many of the tragedies that happen in the US today may not be merely a result of depression, but some of the pharmaceuticals that are used to treat depression. It is time to do more than just give a medication for a problem so complex. We must also address the reasons that the depression and anxiety occur.
Depression and anxiety are often situational, but many times they can point to underlying biochemical issues.

Nourishing the brain is an effective way to improve all kinds of issues without similar side effects.
