Alternative Medicine/regarding SAD


Hello there,

My name is Thomas. I am suffering from Social anxiety disorder. I am planning to take anti-depressants for that. But I know that they may provide relief from symptoms only (no permanent relief). Can you recommend me something that I can take simultaneously with prescription medicines which can permanently cure social anxiety without any interaction? Also specify how much time it will take to cure.


Hello Thomas
Your question is not easy to answer, as to answer it in a way that is beneficial for you requires a comprehensive biomedical consultation, which is outside the scope of this forum.  

There are so many things that can cause a person to have a problem such as yours and you can be assured that it is NOT caused by a lack of anti-depressant medication.

I strongly advise you to seek a health consultant who is competent in orthomolecular therapy for mood disorders.  If you do not succeed in this, we could arrange a consultation via Skype - which would be chargeable by credit card at the outset of the consultation.

Kind regards

Alternative Medicine
