Our speaker this month was be Caitlin Thompson. After struggling with her own chemical depression and anxiety, Caitlin began her quest to chemically rebalance herself and regain happiness. With a bachelors degree in biology, Caitlin used her scientific background to dive into the neuroscience literature on depression and other mood disorders. She soon became obsessed with neuroscience and began an integrative investigation of the relationship between nutrition, mood disorders, and psychedelic drugs. Her success in reclaiming her health and happiness led her to creating her nutritional supplement company, EntheoZen. Caitlin set out on a mission to share the information she had collected and empower people to have healthy and happy brains.
