There are many ways to deal with depression. We could be working daily with professional private teachers. We could be regularly checked by our doctor and taken all of our vitamins. We can keep a regular sleep schedule and get eight hours of sleep every night. But the truth is that proper nutrition, or actually vegetarian nutrition to be more precise, will solve the problem most often. More than that, without proper nutrition, we simply can not benefit from the above.
There are many ways in the body that are responsible for keeping us smiling. Although modern medicine is about trying to isolate and analyze certain criteria and deal with it, our body is simply not that simple. Human organism is a great complex engine, and it has all the answers inside. The knowledge of being depressed is there, just like the knowledge of how to be happy.
Nutrition to Treat Depression – Know the Basics:
By eating the following foods and avoiding some others I will introduce later, we will create the ideal foundation for a nutritious stable brain environment, and then for the mind.
Eat green. Greens, among other things, encourage the movement of energy in the body. It helps to clean the liver and build blood (depression is often a side effect of blood deficiency!). You can eat plain green leaves, mixed in smoothies or thrown in lettuce. Do not fry or cook them. Raw materials are the best way to eat them, and if raw broccoli is too much for you, steam it well for a short while.
Eat nuts and seeds, but avoid eating them. There are many important fatty acids in these foods and other important aspects of the nervous system. Having a healthy, strong nervous system is essential if we have constant thinking. Stabbing nuts and seeds could create different effects, because it is difficult to digest them and it may affect the gastrointestinal tract. Eat some of the same kind at a time and two different species throughout the day.
Eat sesame seeds. Add them to a salad, or mix them with your cooked vegetables. The nutrition is complex and the tasty little seeds have a lot of nutrients in them. Eating tahini, made from sesame seeds, will not do the job. We need to eat the raw seed. It is best not to grind it, but if you choose it is recommended to eat within a ten minute grind.
Eat different types of lentils. They have high nutritional value and some contain very high levels of special material used to create the "happy hormone" – serotonin. The best source of these substances, called 5-HTP, is Griffonia simplicifolia, and there are additions made from the available plant in the markets, if necessary.
Make sure you eat a variety of vegetables. make sure you have vegetables of all colors throughout the day.
In order to avoid certain foods, it is best to reduce the consumption of meat and dairy products. It is also highly recommended to avoid sugar, caffeine and alcohol. I am not trying to preach against these few, but the fact is that our life is very hard to create content that we need to keep happily when it comes to dealing with poison. The direct threat gets the body's attention, and things like our serotonin levels move down and wait for them.
These are the fundamentals we need to know, and enough to get us started on the path of depression. Maintaining these principles in just a few weeks will usually be relevant to those suffering from depression. Although not 100% solving the chronic disease, it will help us with the first steps in healing.
Remember, keep a healthy, healthy diet with lots of vegetables. Nutrition should be a priority, as it stands on the basis of happiness. Another great benefit of nutrition-based healing is that it gives the spiritual benefit of knowing that you set goals to eat this and that and achieve that goal!
Stay well and keep smiling! just by reading this you are halfway there.
