Maybe so, maybe not. But I bet 50 years from now the SSRIs will have been a fad that once was.

Drug research is not exactly stellar. They make it appear so in abstracts. Look closely at details of full reports, and at the unpublished reports not usually seen, and it is a different picture. Personally, I don't go by research because it has never worked for me. Besides, when you graduate to pbabble, you are kind of past the point of being treated by simple flowcharts. You kind of have to go on instinct, intuition, untested ideas, and such. Even the best psychiatry has to offer is a guessing game.

I believe in functional medicine. That is, every person is biologically unique, and all the bodily functions are tied together...immune, HPA axis, hormones, neurotransmitters.

I am with you in that I sort of wonder about someone getting better on yogurt. But gosh, I've seen things like it happen before, so I do have an open mind to accept it at face value and be happy for the person. Whether it was something as simple as magnesium, B6+zinc, probiotics, antibiotics, lithium, or whatever...these things totally outside the psych arena have indeed cured people where the best psychiatry had to offer failed.
