Antidepressants Mostly Ineffective on Kids

A new study recently published in The Lancet and summarized in the two articles below says that based on meta-analysis, antidepressants don’t seem to be very effective for children or teens.  Because there are so many underlying biomedical problems that can contribute to symptoms of depression, from nutritional deficiencies and toxic chemical exposure to infections that release neurotoxins, it’s important to look for these problems with an Organic Acids Test (OAT) and a GPL-TOX Toxic Organic Chemical Profile.  Many of these problems can be addressed and treated naturally to relieve symptoms without the use of potentially harmful drugs.  Click here for a list of resources on recommended testing and treatment options related to depression.  This webinar may also be beneficial to view:
