Do you have attention problems because of ADD, or could it be from something else, such as Lyme disease?
Is your sadness and fatigue due to depression, or are they from imbalanced hormones?
Do you need Prozac, or maybe progesterone?
No one will ever have a Prozac deficiency, but you could definitely have a progesterone deficiency. Did you know that BOTH can be effectively used to treat anxiety, insomnia and PMS?
