The FDA & drug companies will not endorse vitamins & natural remedies, some think, because they cannot make money from them. Keeping people in poor health dependent on drugs is a big, money-making business. I have a book about orthomolecular medicine & others like it saved on my Amazon wish list. For example, I have read how some mental health disorders are exacerbated or even caused by food or chemical sensitivities & how the intestinal flora in our bowels even regulates our moods. I personally know of several people who only experienced panic attacks after prolonged bowel problems like diarrhea from IBS or Celiac disease. Some even advocate taking probiotics for your mood. As a nurse, the more I learn about the human body, the more I realize how much I do not know & how complex it is. The more I learn about drug companies & even the medical community, the more I think it is all about the money to be made off of the sick.
