This episode is really near and dear to my heart. Farris and I talk about our individual experiences with depression and how holistic medicine has helped us manage it without drugs. It is my greatest hope that this episode will help anyone else who is suffering to know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Not the mention that Farris is just as funny as ever.
0:32 Farris talks about his experience with depression which started one Christmas.
5:15 "Depression is when we go between extremes...it's a sign you need to dial it back."
10:32 "Health is about resilience"
13:45 Acupuncture reminds your body what it's like to not be in that fight/flight mode.
18:00 "For a while, I felt like a Jenga tower."
23:20 "For every year you've had an issue you need 1-3 months before things begin to turn around."
34:15 Maybe our demons are all the neglected parts of you.
