If you can’t afford therapy, you’re not alone. Conventional therapy can definitely get expensive depending on how qualified your therapist is and how frequent you see them.

10. Supplements Mentioned –
~GABA – Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA) is one of your body’s primary neurotransmitters, and acts to calm your central nervous system (CNS). Research has shown the GABA supplement to be effective in natural treatment for depression, anxiety, insomnia, and addiction.
~N-Acetyl Cystine (NAC) – Binds with glutamate and glycine to create glutathione, naturally reducing glutamate levels in the brain.
~5-HTP and Tryptophan – Tryptophan is the essential amino acid from which your body produces 5-HTP, Serotonin and Melatonin and a wide array of structural proteins, enzymes, and other essential biochemicals.
***DO NOT TAKE 5-HTP or TRYPTOPHAN IF YOU ARE ALREADY TAKING AN SSRI!!!***
