In this week’s fan favorite Ask Me Anything episode, my team and I sit down to answer all your questions on addressing mental health through functional medicine. We discuss everything from the natural supplements and foods to help with anxiety and depression, how toxins and your environment play a role in your mood, and the impact of trauma on a person's mental and physical long-term health. We also take a step back and evaluate the latest research on antidepressants.

A few of my favorite things we cover this episode:

  • A look into the connection between various toxins and their link to various mental health issues
  • What you should be supplementing with to help ease your mind if you are struggling with feelings of depression and anxiety
  • How both past and present trauma affects the body and how it can impact our healing journeys if not addressed properly
  • When and if antidepressants should be used when grappling the infatuation of mental illness and how the role they play in our long-term quality of life

Happy listening and we hope you learned a little bit more about the Art of Being Well!
