How I Quit Antidepressants, Lost Weight, and Got Healthy for Good

"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food."
—Hippocrates

Hi there! I'm Holly. I struggled through major depression and a handful of other diagnosed mood disorders. After I was prescribed antidepressants, I gained 60 pounds over the course of a year and a half. My doctors kept pushing more meds and I kept feeling worse, so I did tons of research on my own. What I learned was shocking, disgusting, and empowering. I'm now 100% medication-free, and I'm thriving — both mentally and physically — because of my "self-prescribed" paleo lifestyle.

I created this website to curate and share the amazing resources I've used on my own journey to health and happiness. There's a lot of horrible information out there. Here, I'll share my story and what's worked for me — maybe it will help you, too.
