Introduction to Mental health/Mood imbalances
We are witnessing an epidemic of mood disorders. Everyone is experiencing excessive stress. Mental issues have tripled in the US since the 1990s. Even our kids are in trouble… Yes, it is true we are facing unprecedented adversaries in the 21st century but so have we in the 20th century and further back into the past. Meanwhile, the use of psychiatric medications is skyrocketing. Psychiatrists, therapists, and pediatric neurologists have waiting lists months long, and mindfulness/wellness centers are prospering but the number of people with anxiety, depression, bipolar, and attention deficit disorder, as well as others, is invariably growing. What are the reasons for this phenomenon?
We believe that there is not one single answer to this perplexing question but one thing is certain, it is not caused by Prozac or Adderall deficiency. With proper nutritional guidance, nurturing our guts back to health, lifestyle optimization such as restorative sleep, stress management, a healthy movement routine, and the addition of necessary nutraceuticals, Dr. Kalika and her team will work on restoring your emotional balance.
