How can you feel calm, cool and collected when your digestive system is ruining your life? When certain foods make your stomachache, make you feel tired, or put you in a permanent bad mood? Or even overwhelm you with dark thoughts and lead to depressive episodes? Like so many of us, Margot Montpezat has many friends and family members who have been affected by depression: her mother, aunt, and several friends and colleagues have suffered from depressive episodes or even committed suicide. So she decided to try to understand what was wrong, why neither shrinks nor anti-depressants were working for them.
And her whole way of seeing the world changed!
