Presented by Hyla Cass, MD 

Depression, anxiety, memory impairment, and other psychiatric conditions are not only increasing in incidence, but are being treated almost exclusively with medications. However, besides their deleterious side effects, medications do not address the root cause. Patients will respond well, often better, to natural products for depression, anxiety, stress, insomnia, and impaired cognition.

This recorded session reviews the neurobiochemistry of these conditions, how to determine deficiencies with both history and specific lab testing, and how to restore balance with specific nutrients. These include vitamins, minerals, amino acids, herbs, and omega-3 fatty acids.  For example, “adaptogens,” including herbs such as ginseng, ashwagandha, and rhodiola, are known to enhance resistance to stress and trauma, and boost mood, energy, immunity, and performance.
