As I mentioned in today's newsletter, fish oil has literally been on my mind. Barry Sears has been prescribing it for years as a part of his Zone diet. Many people used the Zone diet for weight loss and dropped it, along with a few pounds, before witnessing the benefits it might have on their brains.
Backed by recent studies, more doctors are willing to recommend diets rich in Omega 3 oils, and supplements are now widely available. In this country, 1 out of 8 people have used antidepressants in the past 7 years and there are more 'just say, yes' commercials on tv than not! So when western medicine begins to look at nutrition to cure depression, it makes me happy!
