MONTANA has a pretty bad reputation when it comes to suicides. Too often we are rocked (and shocked) when we hear of another person who has died by suicide. Nobody is exempt anymore: elementary school-aged children, teenagers, college students, rich athletes, successful adults, as well as those with or without terminal illness.
First, there is so much sadness and grieving, often followed by self-doubt, anger, loneliness, and frustration about all the unfinished business left behind to take care of. I may go out on a limb here by saying that 99.9% of those left behind did NOT expect the person would do it. So, they’re left wondering what made them step over the edge?
The problem is, when suicides come so unexpectedly and happen in all walks of life, it is very difficult to come-up with a solution to reduce the numbers, and to make people see the glass as half-full again.
I do believe specific nutritional deficiencies, as well as certain toxicities, may play a role in the up-tick of suicides today. I will discuss some of these during the upcoming weeks. They do involve body, mind, and spirit. The topic is timely, as well as intense. Hopefully I will be able to provide some insights for you to consider.
