Our daughter who is about to turn 30 has panic attacks, stress urinary incontinence, no appetite and has lost a lot of weight. We feel she has not been eating adequately for a long time and she acknowledges this and has agreed to work on rebooting her system with the very best foods. She has a psychologist she sees once a week and he is helping. Her doctor has recommended an anti-depressant but she feels she can recover without resorting to meds as she feels and we agree that once her body is fit and healthy any chemical imbalance will naturally right itself and she doesn't want to become dependent on drugs. What do others think about this and do you agree that it is worth a try? We feel that a lot of people these days have terrible diets and lack important nutrients that their bodies need especially in the very stressful competitive world we live in today, and that many cases of depression may be caused by our poor diets. Certainly we think that checking a patient's diet is one of the first things that needs to be done.
