Mental Illness Affects 1 in 5 Families

Mental illness is so prevalent in the U.S. that we now have a reduced life expectancy as a result of 2 specific causes, and the pandemic is only making things worse. Dr. Ken Duckworth, the chief medical officer for the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), joins Dr. H to talk about how his organization helps those with bipolar disorder, PTSD, OCD, schizophrenia, depression, thoughts of suicide, and other conditions.

    It is important to be able to manage your stress psychologically, periodically detoxify the body and monitor the work of the intestines, be sure to engage in physical exercise. My stress led me to obesity. At the initial stage of weight gain, of course, I thought to do without medical intervention, but then it all happened again and I myself could not cope. And only stem cell treatment in the clinic – really helped me, now I live life to the fullest!
