Nutritional Health for Mental Health



Our society has become overly reliant on various psychotropic medications to help persons suffering from a variety of emotional, cognitive, and psychological conditions (rather than giving them potential avenues for both prevention and self-healing). Unlike nutritionists, dietitians chiropractors, and naturopathic/holistic physicians, most other physicians, addictions counselors, and various mental health professionals are not trained in and, therefore, are unaware of the other, more ‘healing’ avenues that exist that can be combined with psychotherapy to actually help repair, heal, and/or minimize the impact of various mental disorders (rather than merely “putting a band-aid on a bullet wound”).
