Healing Depression with Dr. Steve Moreau, AP
Depression is something that affects millions of Americans in the world today. It is estimated that over 40 million people are taking some kind of drug for depression and anxiety. Depression is not a chemical imbalance and medical research is now leading the way saying that it is a a form of brain inflammation. If the brain is inflamed, what is contributing to it being in this state? The most common foods that lead to massive inflammation in the brain and body are wheat, dairy, refined sugar, soy, corn, fried foods and alcohol. For many people today, these foods are what people consume in almost every meal in some combination. Dr. Steve Moreau discusses how these foods led the way for his own depression and how Chinese medicine, herbal formulas, dietary changes and acupuncture helped to heal him of depression.
