What Your Psychologist Hasn't Told You
Anxiety and Depression
Break Free by Uncovering the True Biochemical Roots
The true roots of anxiety and depression lie in disrupted neurotransmitters in the brain, not deep seated psychological problems or personality disorders, and using drugs to address the issue only perpetuates the problem even further.
Neurotransmitters are chemicals in the brain, that among other things, are responsible for regulating our emotional state. They keep us alert, focused, attentive, calm, relaxed, content, happy, confident, provide energy, joy and pleasure, and regulate pain.
In order to maintain optimal mental health, all these brain chemicals need to be functioning properly. Unfortunately that is not always the case, the production and/or function of neurotransmitters can be altered and disrupted quite easily. Too much or too little of these brain chemicals will result in impaired mental health like anxiety and/or depression. Restore balance to the neurotransmitters and you can break free.
Neurotransmitters can be restored to balance by making changes in the diet, lifestyle, environment and the way you exercise, addressing nutritional deficiencies and identifying other underlying biochemical factors like low blood sugar, adrenal insufficiency, thyroid disorders, yeast overgrowth, hormone imbalances, food, mold and chemical sensitivities and more.
"I am currently trying ways to naturally manage my depression and anxiety which I've suffered with for over 10 years. In just a few months of trying some of the diet changes while weaning off my meds has made me feel better than I have in a very long time. I look forward to even more relief as I continue to implement more of the suggestions offered in the book. It is disappointing that traditional medical professionals are either not aware of or choose not to share this information with their patients. Every psychiatrist should have a copy of this book! I will cherish my copy as I continue my journey of healing." Thank you Cynthia Perkins!
"This book is a must read for anyone dealing with depression! I wish "What Your Psychologist Hasn't Told You About Anxiety and Depression' had been around years ago when I was diagnosed with clinical depression ... I wouldn't have spent years just taking antidepressants, wondering what was wrong with me and it wouldn't have taken me so long to put years of depression behind me. Informative, relevant, Cynthia's book gives new hope for a new life for those dealing with depression and anxiety and it's about time!"

"I have been reading your book on Anxiety and Depression. It is cutting edge! There is so much in this book that is unknown to most people. The majority believe that anxiety and depression are entirely psychological or genetic and that there isn't really any dietary component. Your ideas are revolutionary but make so much sense. Great work!"
"Miss Perkins' new book is an exhaustive, complete and detailed compendium of the biochemical origin of addiction, anxiety and depression. It illustrates clearly the delicate equilibrium in the vastly complex and interwoven world of neurotransmitters and hormones in our physiology, and how our environment, poor diet and poorer habits will disrupt it with the aforementioned consequences. Then, she indicates proper testing to profile the patients individual and unique biochemistry and prescribe simple and effective supplementation along with rigorous diet changes. Furthermore, the bottom line is, it is accurate! How do I know given the fact that I am not a scientist? Simple, because it has worked for me! In a world of pros willing to "heal" you when they can only take the money away from you, Miss Perkins is a very fortunate rarity. Thank you !"

Anxiety and depression are rampant in our society today and continues to grow in frightening numbers. Even the pharmaceutical companies own commercials on TV tell us that 2 out of 3 people taking medication still experience symptoms. You don't have to be one of these people when you identify the true biochemical roots.
"Finally, a book that teaches us to learn how to live and be healed holistically. It's no wonder why medical professionals have not been able to lead the way to a healthier lifestyle- they are trained to follow a specific protocol that does not involve taking into consideration the body as a whole. The medical community wants us to continue in the belief that medications will fix the pain, when it fact they simply do not! They will, in fact, exacerbate our pain. Cynthia Perkins offers an honest look at what we must do to achieve a healthy balance in ours lives, perhaps not an easy task at first, but one that will yield a lifetime of fulfilling results."

"I found your book very insightful and inspiring. It's interesting to read that everything is connected in some way and that there is a way to help overcome conditions and have an overall wellness within. I would recommend this book to anyone dealing with weight issues, anxiety, and depression. It's nice to know that you have a first hand understanding because you have been there before. It's also nice to know that you have credentials to back up your theories and I have a sense of wellbeing just that I am not making up these conditions. I get the feeling sometimes from others and from myself that I must be a hypochondriac, because it seems like it's one thing after another that is "going wrong" with me. I feel a sense of relief that it is all connected and with a few changes, everything will get better. This will be a book that I will read over and over again because there's so much information, I know I will learn something new every time I read it. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and personal experiences and willingness to reach out to help others. There are so many doctors that just cover up conditions with medications instead of getting to the root of the problem and this book is a refreshing new look at overall health and wellbeing and how to achieve it."
