Discover how the brain creates emotional states through a specific combination of neurotransmitters, and how an imbalance in these crucial chemicals can affect our moods. Listen in as we unravel the complexities of depression, from its definition as an inadequate supply of serotonin to the limitations of SSRIs in effectively treating this mental health condition. We’ll also uncover how certain nutrient deficiencies and overall gut health can impair our body's ability to synthesize serotonin, leading to anxiety and depression. We discuss the importance of supplementing with methylated nutrients and how genetic testing can help identify these deficiencies.   Statistics from Johns Hopkins:,substance%20use%20and%20anxiety%20disorders.
