Omega 3 fats: Omega 3 fats are essential for humans because we cannot make them -- they must come from our diets or supplements. They are highly concentrated in brain, and needed for its optimal function. You can take fish oil supplements -- at least 1-2 grams/day of epa and 500mg/day of dha (major omega 3 components in fish oil). There are also plant-based forms. Http://tinyurl.

My endo prescribe me 5 mg tapazole (methimazole) should I stop taking omega 3, vit? Is there any natural treatment for grave desease? I am scared with medication

There are no proven natural treatments for grave's disease. You should not stop omega 3s or vitamins, however, during your treatments. The disorder should resolve in 1-2 years and you should no longer need the tapazole (methimazole). Do not fear taking this. ...Read more

Are omega-3 fatty acids just as effective as any antidepressant?

Are omega-3 fatty acids just as effective as any antidepressant?

Not so far: There hasn't yet been a study directly comparing omega 3 fatty acids to antidepressant treatment -- so we can't conclude the 2 are equivalent or that efa's are better.

Dha alone was not protective; epa was more so. ...Read more
