    Drugs from Natural Products and the Potential for Anticancer and Antimicrobial Solutions with Nick Oberlies

    Can fungi provide solutions we have not before thought possible? Well, through natural chemistry, they may offer benefits far beyond the range of our imagination. Press play to learn:
    The chances that your prescription is a natural medication One of the logistical issues surrounding natural medicine How a natural treatment is discovered and developed Nick Oberlies, a Distinguished Professor of Chemistry at The University of North Carolina Greensboro, shares his expertise as a natural chemist and his work surrounding fungi.
    Many people have been affected personally or have heard stories of the difficulties surrounding the world of typical pharmaceuticals and their side effects. Fortunately, there has been a push to seek treatments from the natural world, including exceedingly promising results from a range of fungi.
    One of the most promising results from medicinal fungi is its cancer-fighting capabilities, especially in cases where surgery may be necessary. However, more investment is required in research, development, and accessibility to natural medicine to become truly viable.

    Genetic Vulnerability to Mental Health Disorders and How Nutritional Deficiencies May be an Indicator with James M. Greenblatt

    Genetic Vulnerability to Mental Health Disorders and How Nutritional Deficiencies May be an Indicator with James M. Greenblatt

    Can genetic testing help diagnose mental health disorders? Genetic and body chemistry testing may hold the key to diagnosis and treatment in many cases of eating disorders and various other conditions. Listen up to learn:
    The deadliest mental health disorder The goal of making patients believe they have a problem How the current situation has affected those that suffer from eating disorders.  James M. Greenblatt, a Functional Psychiatrist, Orthomolecular Hall of Fame Inductee, Author, and Founder of Psychiatry Redefined, shares his vast experience treating and diagnosing mental health disorders.
    Eating disorders like bulimia and anorexia are some of the harshest and most devious illnesses in the realm of mental health. Sadly, they can be challenging to treat and even harder to diagnose or show a tendency towards.
    Since anorexia is a brain-based illness, it has been firmly proven to be caused by genetics and issues in brain chemistry, rather than how it used to be blamed on one's surroundings or upbringing. Fortunately, this revolution in understanding allows for a gain in efficacy in the treatment and even more so in proper diagnosis, helping to avoid any tragic circumstances.

    16 Low or No-Cost Strategies for Easing Your Anxiety and Depression

    16 Low or No-Cost Strategies for Easing Your Anxiety and Depression

    “It ends up coming down to this: there are certain things that make us worse, emotionally and physically, and certain things that make us better, emotionally and physically; they go together, and they are consistent over time,” says Carrie Wrigley.
    Tune in to learn more about Wrigley’s perspective and discover:
    The #1 thing that doesn’t work for combating anxiety and depression Why cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) might not be the first place to start for those struggling with their mental health Whether we were born with innate skills for overcoming anxiety and depression Carrie Wrigley has been a clinical social worker for over three decades, and has been teaching classes on coping with anxiety and depression for over two decades. She’s also the author of Your Happiness Toolkit: 16 Strategies for Overcoming Depression, and Building a Joyful, Fulfilling Life, and Your Happiness Toolkit Workbook, both of which include the strategies Wrigley has found most helpful over the course of her personal and professional life.
    At little to no cost, the strategies in these books are practical and straightforward, and have proven successful for countless people who struggle with mental and overall health.  
    Action, feeling, positivity, learning, and creativity: according to Wrigley, these are the five easiest strategies for us to adopt, because they already exist within us—even if it doesn't seem like it. She discusses each in detail, and also touches on the more complex strategies that should come later in the process of healing.

    Depression in Teens and the Causes and Ramification of Self-Harm when Enduring Mental Health Struggles with Dr. Lisa Machoian

    Depression in Teens and the Causes and Ramification of Self-Harm when Enduring Mental Health Struggles with Dr. Lisa Machoian

    Why does self-harm rear its head in teens struggling with their mental health? While it is difficult to truly understand, facing these issues and helping those who suffer from it to heal is vital.

    Listen up to learn:
    What makes cutting appealing How PTSD can play a role in self-harm The warning signs that may appear  Dr. Lisa Machoian, an author and psychologist, shares her work helping younger generations cope with their mental health and heal from the root causes of self-harm.
    Much stigma surrounds the act of self-harm, and through this misunderstanding, the issue can often be misconstrued or exacerbated. Since so many teens suffering from depression or anxiety often resort to self-regulation methods such as these, it is crucial to understand the underlying reasons.
    Thankfully, self-harm has become better understood and treated over time, but there is still much work to do in supporting those amid these issues. If you or someone you know is struggling with matters surrounding self-harm, it is imperative to seek support or provide support if you notice the signs in those around you.

    The Future of Mental Health and the Fantastic Benefits of Exercise and Holistic Wellness with Nita Sweeney

    Can exercise really help anxiety and depression? For a wide array of reasons, even a quick jog may help someone struggling with their mental health more than you may think.

    Listen in to learn:
    How to start on your exercise and mental health journey Why a jog can influence your anxiety or depression If journaling may help your process Nita Sweeney, the Author of Depression Hates a Moving Target, shares her journey handling her mental health by reclaiming her physical health.
    While there is a wide range of medications available for severe depression or anxiety, they may not be the best option for every individual coming to terms with their mental health. Instead, physical activity like running or jogging can have profound benefits as an alternative or in concert with prescription medication.
    However, one of the cruelest aspects of anxiety and depression can be the challenges one faces when trying something new or the significant fear of failure. Despite this, even getting off of the couch and outdoors to attempt can be the first step on your path to remedying your mental health.

    Causes of Mental Illness, the Importance of Healing Your Mind, and Mental Fitness Tips with Henry Emmons

    Causes of Mental Illness, the Importance of Healing Your Mind, and Mental Fitness Tips with Henry Emmons

    What is natural mental health? While overlooked by many, there are alternative solutions that can help outside the world of pharmaceuticals and in a more holistic context.

    Listen up to learn:
    Why focusing on food can make a significant impact What can be observed in a patient beginning certain medications Practical and helpful lifestyle measures Henry Emmons, an author and integrative psychiatrist, shares his work in natural mental health and ensuring patients find the mental health goals for which they search.
    While there are countless options in the world of medicine when attempting to diagnose and treat mental health issues, mental fitness is achievable outside of that world as well. With outside factors like micronutrients and various stressors, there are often alternative options to holistically address a patient's mental health.
    Even if medication is the right choice for a patient, which is often the case, minding the nutrition and activity of the patient is also highly beneficial. However, it is crucial to keep the holistic context in mind since it can provide further and lasting benefits to improve a patient's mental fitness and lifestyle patterns.
