Anyone experienced with depression and anxiety knows these illnesses can be difficult to treat. Two areas that have often been overlooked by traditional physicians are hormonal factors, and the link between biochemistry and the brain. Underlying depression and anxiety have also been linked to addictions, as people try to self-medicate to feel better. Natural therapies are now popular because patients want to avoid the side effects of synthetic drugs. But what of their efficacy?
One company may have truly breakthrough answers. Life Extension Foundation has been doing research since 1980 to integrate therapies throughout the world on traditionally difficult to treat conditions. The major problem with commercially available products like St. John's Wort and SAMe is that they can easily skimp on quality ingredients, or fall short of the actual potencies needed to provide relief.
The Life Extension Foundation has an arm that sells pharmaceutical-grade supplements of unmatched quality. Patients testify they really do feel the difference. The Foundation offers a wealth of scientifically-based treatment protocols on everything from Alzheimer's to Anxiety --available at www. AD1.lef.org. Foundation members support further research; receive in-depth organized information free with membership; and receive 25% off pharmaceutical-grade products.
