Whether you’re a practicing mental health professional, learning to become a professional, or just an interested and caring human being, you’ve probably heard about the psych meds that increasing numbers of people are being prescribed. In fact, it’s a regular part of conventional therapy, be it for mental health conditions like depression, anxiety, and more, or for recovering individuals who have been into the drug scene. Perhaps you’re taking them yourself.
Are you perhaps wondering about all the side effects people experience from these meds? Many of the medications have general side effects like your taste buds changing, you can’t remember things like you used to, or you are experiencing frequent urination.
How could you have NOT heard all the hype about the Coronavirus?! All kinds of public events are being cancelled, places where people gather together are being scrutinized because of fear of spreading the virus. School classes are being cancelled. (Thank goodness for online studying!) We’re running out of hand sanitizer because people are hoarding out of fear. (By the way, conventional anti-bacterial hand sanitizing products also kill off your strong, protective immune system germs in addition to the bad guys. That’s why I use natural-based products which only kill the disease causing germs.)
