A Mind, Body, Spirit Approach to Mental Health
For years, Dr. Christina Bjorndal, ND, endured debilitating depression, bipolar disorder, and anxiety and battled bulimia, addiction, and a range of other mental health challenges.

Finally, feeling terrorized by her own thoughts, she attempted to take her life. This devastating low point led to a deep reckoning.

She began to take back control of her life.

From there, she began her quest to help others who were struggling with the same issues she did. 

In her book, Beyond the Label, Bjorndal outlines, step-by-step, how you can move from the current mental health “label” you have been given to optimal health on all levels--physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.

Dr. Bjorndal joins Dr. Friedman to discuss her personal journey, and how her teachings and books can provide the courage, support, confidence, and guidance you need to take your own steps to mental wellness.
