I’m Living My Dream, So Why Do I Want to Kill Myself? with Jason Wrobel Commune with Jeff Krasno

    • Health & Fitness

Jason Wrobel considered ending his life while standing in his kitchen — but his kitchen would also save his life. After a comprehensive battery of medical tests, Jason discovered he had suboptimal neurotransmitter function, which led him to become an expert in the nutrition needed for optimal mental health. In this episode he and Jeff have an in-depth discussion on neurotransmitters and which foods, herbs, and supplements can improve cognitive function.
