The FDA-approved prescription medication, Zoloft and Paxil are like a Band-Aid approach to mental health problems. It is putting Band-Aids on broken bones.
Medication is like a life jacket. Even Olympic swimmers need a lift jacket when swimming in the middle of the ocean. Medication is needed at times, and very helpful but it is not addressing or healing the problem. It is just a temporary solution.
