When he was younger he was given antidepressants for the deep depression he was experiencing. At first they did help, but at the time he was also taking Chinese herbal supplements, which interacted with the medication. This caused a misdiagnosis of bi-polar disorder and a cocktail of drugs. Compounded with a quickly deteriorating relationship, these drugs, which would prove to be unnecessary overall, led to psychosis, severe weight gain, suicide ideation and attempt, and hospitalization/institutionalization. Eventually, he found a doctor who was more scrupulous toward his medical history, and he was weened off all medication. Soon after, once he was in a much healthier state of mind, he moved across the country to get a fresh start. Now he's studying health and nutrition at the Southern California Health Institute in the hopes of inspiring others to take control of their health. 1. 2.
