207. How to Heal OCD & Safely Stop Antidepressants

Julia Britz is a licensed naturopathic doctor who received her training from Bastyr University in San Diego, CA. She specializes in supporting people who are struggling with mental health issues such as OCD, disorders eating and psychiatric medication tapering. Her passion for working with individuals suffering from these lonely conditions is that she too was a “hopeless case”, but got better.

Dismissed by doctors, she was told over and over there was nothing else she could try beyond pharmacotherapy, and so was inspired to create MyOCDdiary: an imperfect story.” She utilizes natural and integrative modalities including targeted amino acid therapy, peptide therapy, micronutrient therapy, bioresonance, botanical medicine and epigenetic analysis. Most recently she was the director of naturopathic medicine at Alternative to a meds Center in Arizona and now practices telemedicine. She can be contacted at www.drjuliabritz.com.

I want to share with you a show that has made such a difference in so many women who are breast-feeding's lives. It's called The Milk Making Minutes and it looks at the struggles and triumphs of breast feeding as well as the systemic barriers that women face when they are breast-feeding.

One of the things we talk about on our show is how important it is to be your own advocate. It’s not just about the systemic struggles that people face, it's really down to earth and practical advice about: Are you using the right size flange on your breast pump? How do you deal with a tongue tie? They also talk about the long-term benefits and the hope that breast-feeding can give new moms. I encourage you to go and check out the show.
