With the overuse of antidepressants, it's not uncommon to know at least one person that's taking them. Sadly, the root causes for the use of these medications are usually feelings of isolation, loneliness, anxiety, and despair. The problem is they are just a bandaid for much deeper issues.
None of these medications cure these emotions. In fact, many times they make them worse. Just read the side effects that are listed with the accompanying pamphlet that you get any time you fill a prescription. It's astonishing that people still swallow them on a daily basis knowing this, but there is a better way.
As with anything else, when nature takes over, the human body will heal itself of anything if given the chance. A diet rich in organic, whole foods is the key to balancing brain chemistry and aligning your mind with your higher self. Food such as kale, broccoli, sweet potatoes, turnip greens, legumes, raw nuts and seeds and nutrient-packed superfoods like raw cacao all help raise your awareness and bring about true healing.
Next time you find yourself reaching for these medications, try harnessing the power of the greatest medicine on earth instead - FOOD. Filling up on whole organic foods will boost your nutrition and clear your head. It might sound trite, but clean, pure whole foods that have not been genetically modified or altered are worth way more in time and expense than hours spent in doctor's offices, on dialysis, or on meds.
