My guest, Albert Mensah MD, co-founder of Mensah Medical, in Warrenville, IL, treats mental health disorders, such as ADD, ADHD, depression, bipolar disorder, autism and addiction, not at the symptom level with pharmaceuticals, but at the biochemical or root cause of the disorder using a nutrient-based protocol known as Orthomolecular Medicine. I credit Dr. Mensah with helping heal my daughter’s brain chemistry.
There is growing evidence that anti-depressants, which are often prescribed for mental health disorders, can be dangerous for children. In January, 2016, the British Medical Journal reported on the largest review of studies on the the effects of the most common antidepressants, such as Prozac. It stated that these anti-depressants doubled the risk of suicide and aggressive behavior in people under 18.
Dr. Mensah’s biochemical, nutrient-based approach can be an effective, safe alternative to pharmaceutical treatment. He has practiced for more than a decade in this area of specialty, treating thousands of patients with an 85% success rate.
In this interview you will discover:
- How can nutrient therapy affect neurotransmitter activity in a safe and effective way?
- How do nutrients produce similar neurotransmitter activity as a stimulant medication for ADHD?
- What evidence is there to support nutrient therapy in autism recovery?
- Why isn’t a healthy diet and exercise program enough to combat anxiety and depression?
- Can bipolar disorder be managed successfully just with targeted nutrients?
- Why are multivitamins potentially dangerous?
