COVID-19 has shown up more than ever we are in a mental health crisis. Despite the billions of dollars spent on drug research, it seems that people are more depressed than ever before.
Here’s a thought, what if we are looking for solutions in the wrong place? Instead of treating mental illness with more and more medication how about, we feed our brains?
