So does it work?
Let’s find out…
Consider the rationale for treating mental illness with vitamins & minerals. According to TrueHope, our bodies need a balance of vitamins and minerals or else our brain chemistry will be impacted.
Deficiency of one nutrient can make you unable to absorb other nutrients properly, which leads to multiple, interrelated deficiencies. These deficiencies disrupt the brain chemical function in people with illnesses such as Bipolar Disorder, Depression, ADHD, and Anxiety.
Mental health disorders can be caused through a number of means and not simply by a chemical imbalance. With this in mind, the treatment of mental health disorders goes beyond bringing your chemicals “in balance” and includes consideration of the whole person.
