Anxiety and Depression: Fight Back with Natural Methods


Battling depression and anxiety can make us feel hopeless and lost. When in the middle of that kind of suffering we look for relief wherever it can be found. We often turn to pharmaceuticals, but sometimes that can come at a cost with a variety of adverse side effects. We believe in the body’s ability to heal itself and this includes mental and cognitive functions. Everyone deserves a chance at recovery.

On this episode, Ed is joined by Meredith Mason, CNP and founder of BRIO Integrative Medicine in Chattanooga, TN once again. They discuss a variety of possible underlying causes including inflammation, nutrient deficiency, lack or sleep, and chronic stress. Listen in as they discuss practical lifestyle changes, make recommendations on supplements and dietary changes, and help guide you toward better health.

"When someone tells me ‘I’m depressed and I don’t want to be on antidepressants, it is multi factorial. We have to look at sleep issues… and then we begin to look at different alternatives.”
