The Orthomolecular Approach to Treating Mental Illness
Higher than normal levels of certain toxins and heavy metals have been shown to contribute to some cases of depression, schizophrenia and other mental illnesses. And if you are recovering from a serious illness such as cancer, your mental health has already taken a big blow. A list of common culprits and their sources that we come into contact with on a regular basis include:
* Lead: household paint, water pipes, environmental pollutants, make-up, pesticides
* Mercury: silver dental fillings, some fish/seafood, water, household paint, pesticides
* Solvents: household cleaning products, rubber and plastic products/packaging
Further, lower than normal levels of certain nutrients have been shown to have an impact also. The following symptoms could be evidence of an underlying condition that is contributing to cases of mental illness:
Bad breath or body odour
White spots on fingernails
Poor dream recall
Pale skin that does not react well to sunlight
Regular bouts of abdominal pain, infections or the common cold
Irregular menstrual cycle or impotency
Inability to tolerate alcohol
Difficulty digesting high-protein foods
The good news is, most underlying conditions can be improved significantly through proper nutrition and lifestyle changes so they don't need to become an even bigger problem.
