The bottom line of living a productive lifestyle is answering the daily question of how to achieve wellness and optimal health? Based on more and more research and lack of progress, we are beginning to see that pharmaceuticals don't work and nutrition can assist our bodies health.
In today's episode of The Mental Minute, I explain a bit about how have bacteria evolved resistance to antibiotics. This is important because pharmaceutical drug prescriptions are becoming more of the go-to to better health by the media today. But there is a better way, and it's how we can go back to a more natural lifestyle.

Antidepressants And Immune System
Do you take antidepressants or do you know someone that does? Are you concerned about how those pills may interfere with your gut health? With much focus beginning to be written about the relationship between your gut health and mental health and antidepressants, it might be good to address how one affects the other.
I had two people ask me recently whether they should stop taking antidepressants and focus on a significant amount of pharmaceutical grade probiotics or whether probiotics could ultimately become a substitute for antidepressants. My answer is/was/always will be, 100% no. Probiotics are not medicine or pharmaceutical drugs. They don't need to be prescribed by a physician, and in most instances are not used to get your body to do or not do something it is supposed to do. Probiotics are simply living organisms (bacteria) and part of living foods that go to enhance and nourish your overall well-being and gut health.
These podcasts are an extension of me sharing what I believe is the source to be healthy emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually: a strong gut.
