boy would it not be nice if this were a much more exact science. A doc can take two people brought up similarly at the amed age with the same diagnosis and symptoms and one it might be magic for the other poison. It is very archaic as most of meicine is. Take this or that particular poison and see if it provides for an objective feeling of not having some particular symptom (at least as far as depression is) forget what it could be doing to all the other systems in your body whether you feel that efect or not. Consider the rather simplistic example of your liver . HOw it all has to go through your (or most) liver and puts stress on it and after years could have damamging effects. And of course the others we call "side effects" whch they ae not. They ae effects of the cheicals we are putting into our bodies just not the effects we are wanting!!Oh well I am on my high horse . It is not like I never take medications. But I myself and try to persuade others to go the natural route first and try it for a whie as it can take longer. You I would thnk would feel this way as you are a physical instructor, something about as natural a healing in your body as one can get.
