To treat mood and mind, look to the body. Nutritional status, hormonal balance, food sensitivities, toxins; digestive, immune and metabolic capacity influence not only mood, behavior, and attention but also energy levels, pain perception, autoimmune and malignant processes as well as overall susceptibility to illness and degeneration. They need to be the first line of investigation, not the last.
Did you know that premenstrual mood swings are the result of fluctuating hormone levels? (As are menopausal hot flushes, in both men and women, for that matter.) That your winter blues are very likely a sign of vitamin D deficiency?
Your lifelong melancholy could be a result of accumulated mercury contamination from all those tuna fish sandwiches you had for lunch over the years.
And get this: your or your partner's maddening OCD is almost certainly coming from an overgrowth of "bad" bacteria in the intestines.
One of the fundamental precepts of holistic medicine is that, "Everything affects everything else." In these examples and more, in order to heal the mood or mind you actually have to heal the body. (This includes addiction and recovery, an especially fascinating area of research.) That's what makes this medicine so powerful. And so exciting.
