Some of the highlights Dr. Alex shares:
How Western Medicine diagnoses, measures, and treats depression
Traditional medicine's objective is to help a depressed person feel "less depressed"; the goal is not to "cure" depression or help the person feel "happy"
The objective of antidepressants is to help a person feel "less depressed" or "comfortably numb" - it's important to understand that antidepressants do not help a person feel "happy"
Dr. Alex has 40 years experience as a medical doctor and 25 years experience as an acupuncturist 
How Dr. Alex developed a new form of Transformational Acupuncture that corrects and aligns chakras and is more effective than traditional Chinese acupuncture in healing chronic pain and depression
Transformational acupuncture can help people overcome feelings of "being stuck"
Many patients have been able to stop taking opioids and/or antidepressants by solving and correcting the underlying problem rather than coping or masking
How to find a practitioner and/or gain the training to become a practitioner
