Biochemical imbalance, Joan Mathews Larson, Ph.D., contends, is often to blame for your sadness and anxiety. If that is the case, she says you won’t find the cure in a therapist’s office. Instead, she suggests turning to biochemistry. You can’t expect your brain to function properly if your body’s chemistry is out of whack. Larson postulates that you can cure your emotional problems with a healthy diet and natural supplements. Note, however, that as desirable as this natural remedy may be, it isn’t easy to follow. You need to say good bye to lattes, sweet treats and fast food. Of course, smoking is out. Larson says her research and her work with thousands of patients validates her beliefs. Her health center sells many of the cures she discusses, but even though she may have a vested interest, she makes a heartfelt case for biochemical remedies. getAbstract recommends her work to anyone who is interested in alternative medical approaches to emotional problems or depression – with one caveat: Do your own research!
In this summary, you will learn
- How your brain’s biochemistry can affect your emotional and psychological well-being;
- How to identify biochemical imbalances and treat them with a healthy diet and nutritional supplements; and
- How to cure depression and anxiety holistically and naturally.
