There is a major difference between the use of drugs and the use of nutrients in treating mental illness.
Drugs may temporarily alleviate symptoms, but can never be considered a cure. A cure occurs when the patient is brought back to a state of mental balance. It implies a constitutional change, which can be accomplished through using nutrients that were missing in the diet. The human body was not designed to use drugs, and all have toxic side effects that can destroy the human brain and body, when used long term.
Millions of people have gone to their graves without knowing that their medications have negatively impacted their lives and in many cases may have contributed to their deaths. Still, millions more live with devastating side effects. The PranaMind approach is based on the premise that mind and body, work together and that food and nutrition are directly related to mood, behavior, and neurocognition processing.
Decades of research has shown that mental and emotional health issues are the result of a biochemical imbalance of neurotransmitters and vital micronutrients, i.e., vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. The lack of nutrients can have devastating long-term effects, which can lead to unhealthy emotional and mental states such as depression, panic disorder, anxiety disorder, weight gain, brain fog, low mood, and mood swings, along with diabetes and auto-immune problems. Fortunately, by regulating vitamins and minerals we can move closer to restoring balance to the brain and body.
Restored balance and optimal health can be achieved by identifying and correcting biochemical and nutritional imbalances and deficiencies of already naturally occurring elements via micronutrients; vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
