“After learning about all the side effects of my prescribed anti-depressant, I went to a Naturopath hoping there was some other alternative.”
I suffer from high levels of anxiety, so I went to my GP and filled in a mental health check and plan. My results came back as moderately depressed, severely anxious, and extremely severe stress.
I was prescribed Paroxetine 20mg and was told there would be some side effects:
Those were just the common ones. The less common ones scared the life out of me!
My stress presents physically as well as mentally, so the last thing I wanted was more strange side effects.
I went to a Naturopath hoping there was some other alternative.
I was given two natural “medications”, calm x and neuro lift. Basically, a concoction of magnesium, St. John’s wart, and all the B vitamins.
After about 2 weeks I saw major improvements. I didn’t have heart palpitations, dizziness, racing thoughts, fatigue, or foggy brain. It all started to lift.
I will always choose the natural route if I can and will fight to ensure this is my right!”
