Not groundbreaking news but I do appreciate a more conservative approach where prescribed meds are seen as supplements and not complete evil. It’s all about balance people.

I feel better because I’m getting the fuel I need but I also feel better because good nutrition is a form of self care, just like getting enough sleep, flossing & meditating.

Meds are also a form of self care and have their place. It’s an individual choice though that I believe requires careful consideration and probably some solid supervision.
