Hi, I’m Mary Sheehan, pharmacist and Modern Medicine Woman
Although prescription medications can be incredible tools for overcoming anxiety and depression they aren’t the be all end all for restoring health and happiness.
In this series (intro video here):
- I’ll challenge popular misconceptions about the role of antidepressants so that you can see what possible solutions exist beyond the pill bottle.
- Show that healing is a process and not a destination. Although there is no magic pill that fixes everything, you can still find joy and happiness.
