SSRIs, L-MethylFolate and Pregnancy


Maternal depression is not something that should be taken lightly. The World Health Organization reports that ten percent of all pregnant women are depressed. With depression being so common in today’s society, it is important to understand how it can manifest in women. Depression can be broken into two categories depending on the severity of symptoms. Major depressive disorder is severe and is categorized by persistent feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness.

Low Folate Levels and ADHD


Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD) has been defined by the medical community as a neurologically-based disorder.

The environment around us has changed drastically over the course of the years. When our grandparents were young, they were likely buying their produce from a local farm or even growing it themselves. The soil was richer and contained nutrients that were more bioavailable. Unfortunately in today’s world, growing your own food is rare. Even those who buy all organic meats and produce are bound to eat foods that contain small amounts of pesticides (either from runoff, cross-contamination, or proximity to non-organic crops). Additionally, more than 100,000 chemicals are now unregulated and found in everything from our personal care products to our cleaning supplies.

he birth control pill has been around for decades. It is an effective and reliable way to prevent pregnancy when taken as directed.
