I discovered the most recent “Nutrition” column libellous and insulting. I’m certain there are those that additionally discovered it to be fairly hurtful. Mental well being is just not a joke. It requires correct medical consideration and never some holistic nutritionist’s opinion that she will be able to repair every little thing together with her witch’s brew.
Although Nonie De Long might not agree with the recommendation of some medical practitioners, it’s irresponsible and libellous to recommend that she is extra certified than some very extremely specialised and efficient practitioners.
Those who undergo from despair typically cannot discover a interest or go for a stroll to really feel higher particularly as a result of they undergo from despair.

It can also be absurd that Nonie De Long feels compelled to make any affiliation between any psychological well being dysfunction and a vocation or career similar to engineering. I’m acquainted with a number of instances the place individuals undergo from psychological well being points and there aren’t any engineers within the rapid household.
