Book Review: Mental Health, Naturally

Mental Health, Naturally is a book written by an M.D., and is part of what I would call "soft" mental health treatment. It deals with the issues that families run into with their kids, and it is medically oriented.

On the other hand, the author is familiar with a lot of nutritional and life style approaches to mental illness and what we would call "recovery". If you can get past the warm and fuzzy language and the medical view of mental health, there is a wealth of information, tips, and techniques that could be useful for anyone working on their recovery.

Reading through this book reminded me of my experiences with Orthomolecular Psychiatry in the 70's and the way OP affected the substance abuse community and people with severe mental illness. When I get the time, I'll post some of those stories.
