For 30 years, Joan Mathews Larson, PhD has been treating addiction, anxiety and depression with natural supplements in order to correct the underlying biochemical problems which cause these conditions.
In this video clip, she tells how a deficiency of vitamin B6,, pyrodoxine, can cause extreme anxiety, nervousness, confusion, and melancholy.
She also notes that old large doses are required, and if you don't take enough, nothing happens.
“Vitamin B6, pyridoxine, it’s hugely important,” Dr. Larson notes.
“Without it, it causes extreme anxiety, nervousness, confusion, and melancholy.
“You can get rid of all four of those by taking vitamin B6.
“If you are orthomolecularly-minded, you will take great amounts of it, the cause is water soluble… all these be vitamins are… therefore, they aren’t going to cause you any harm.
“The body can’t store them and cause any mischief.
“But if you don’t get enough, nothing happens.
“So, orthomolecular practitioners know that it’s better to an error on the side of too much.”
Dr. Larson is the author of “7 Weeks to Sobriety”, “Depression Free”, and “7 Weeks to Emotional Healing”.
She opened the Center in 1980 after her son had committed suicide in the 1970’s after returning home from a hospital-based “Talk Therapy” program.
She thought there must be a better way.
Her treatments are all based on scientific research.
As Joan Mathews Larson, PhD notes, addiction problems are the result of biochemical glitches.
Biochemical glitches cannot be “talked away”.
They cannot be solved with Talk Therapy.
There needs to be a paradigm shift in the treatment of addiction problems, away from Talk Therapy, and to where it is recognize it as biochemical problem that requires nutritional therapies to solve.
