Research has shown that mental illness disability rates have increased six-fold since the mid-1950s. In 1987, Prozac and other psychiatric drugs hit the market and have been soaring in use and profit for nearly 30 years.

Whatever the cause, many patients who see psychiatrists for treatment are given psychiatric drugs to suppress their symptoms without getting to the root cause of the problem.

There are 5 common causes of the symptoms of mental illness that should be looked into before psychiatric medication is prescribed.

Vitamin D3 deficiency affects millions of people and can contribute to severe depression and anxiety. Magnesium deficiency also heavily contributes to anxiety, depression, and insomnia, which can lead to psychosis.
