Hyla Cass, MD, Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, UCLA School of Medicine; Author of several best-selling books, including Userís Guides to Herbs, Vitamin C, and Ginkgo Mood imbalances, including depression, anxiety, and insomnia occur more often in women, and are conventionally treated with medications, especially antidepressants. However, from a biochemical standpoint, these conditions are most often related to imbalances in hormones, neurotransmitters, and their micronutrient co-factors.
