VIDEO: Shame About Medications in Depression and Anxiety
I have seen many patients over the past 5 years who feel a shame or guilt about taking prescription medications for anxiety or depression. As a Naturopathic Doctor, I want them or anyone who is experiencing this to know that there should be no shame in seeking treatment to help improve your quality of life - wether it be through naturopathic care including nutritional counselling, acupuncture or herbal medicine, or through pharmaceutical medications, or a combination of both. All that matters is that you can enjoy life on a day to day basis and reach your goals, while finding treatments that strike the balance between benefits and side effects.
