There has been a lot of frustration among clinicians and even patients about the effectiveness of medications as the core treatment approach in psychiatry. In fact, recent research has shown that the medicines for depression and many other disorders are not helping as much as we would have liked or hoped. Dr. James Greenblatt delves deeper into this as he talks about the problems with psychiatry today. He is a certified child and adult psychiatrist, a pioneer in integrative medicine, assistant clinical professor, and author. Dr. Greenblatt provides great insights into the actual underlying causes of disorders that are often missed in psychiatry which often focuses on just treating symptoms. He talks about the relation of nutritional deficiencies and environmental toxins to mental illness and disorders, highlighting how nutritional interventions can make treatment a lot easier.
