Drugs do not heal us

They simply change our internal environment

As an example take the actions of anti-depressant medication

Serotonin reuptake inhibitors are commonly prescribed for relief from depression

Their action is to trick the body to believing it has more serotonin available to it creating a feel good sensation

The downside is that is causes the body to reduce its own serotonin production and in the process causes a serotonin deficiency

Whilst Serotonin is found predominantly in the digestive system, it is also in the brain and blood and throughout the central nervous system

Its function is complex and multifaceted, modulating cognition, reward, learning, as it sends signals between your cells.  Depleted serotonin levels upset the balance of your digestive system and microbiomeYou can boost your natural serotonin levels by increased exposure to sunlight and nutritional supplements such as St John’s Wort and Vitamin B
