NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCIES LEAD TO AND/OR SUPPORTDEPRESSION
FACT: 85% of Americans suffer from nutritional deficiency. "How can that be," You say. We live in the USA (mostreaders anyway ;-) ), the land of the rich and abundant. How couldwe possibly be deficient? It's an easy answer. We consume tremendousamounts of caffeine, sugar, simple carbohydrates (junk food) and the majority of ourfood is 'processed.' Processing of food takes much of what's good out ofthe food, so you get full but your body is not getting what it needs.
Now, what does this have to do with a depression diet? A deficiencyin the following vitamins cause depression symptoms.
- Vitamin B1
- Vitamin B2
- Vitamin B3
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin B12
- Pantothenic acid
- Folic acid
- Vitamin C
One solution for a successful depression diet is to addsupplements but not just any old vitamin. I am a believer in supplements, althoughI'm a convert froma previously more conservative approach. You can benefit greatly fromsupplements, even if you've tried and given up before. You'll want to knowthat the vitamins you take are actually metabolizing in your body in such a waythat your body absorbs as much as possible (Bio-availability). Additionally, you'll want to combine appropriate vitamins, amino acids, herbalextracts and enzymes. Don't worry, you don't have to figure all this outfor yourself like I did years ago. The cost of researching and purchasingall these separate ingredients is time and cost prohibitive. eVitaminshas made it much easier by creating powerful depression formulas for you. You owe it to yourself to check out eVitamins and save 20%-70% On Depression Treatment Products.
DON'T START A DEPRESSION DIET BEFORE GETTING TESTED TO KNOW FOR SURE...
Before beginning any type of a depression diet, get yourself a thoroughphysical from your family doctor to see where your deficiencies are. Noneed to waste effort and cash on a depression diet if you are already in balance, however, keep inmind that 85% are not in balance so please do not skip this step. Here iswhat to talk to your doctor about:
- Full blood panel
- Thyroid test, making sure to check T(3), T(4) and TSH.
- Cytotoxic blood test
- Hair and nail analysis (even though many doctors still do not feel confident about this last test, the results are amazing. In fact, if I had to choose only two out of these five very important tests I would choose two and five.)
FOR A PROPER DEPRESSION DIET EAT RIGHT FOR THE BODY TYPE YOU HAVE!
I had been looking for the correct depression diet for myself and I read a book last yearwhich made me very happy! Although I had seena couple of different nutritionists, one of American schooling and one ofMacrobiotic training, they both had me convinced I was primarily avegetarian. I was bummed, needless to say! I loved and still loveprotein in every meal. Along came The Metabolic TypingDiet by William Wolcott. In itis a very accurate 64 question test. It is in multiple choice format..Every question really makes you think. Here's a sample question:
Eating Before Bed
Eating before bed helps some people sleep better, while it clearly disrupts other people's sleep. For some, it depends on what they eat. For others, eating anything at all is a problem. This question concerns the latter.
Eating just about anything before going to bed:
- disrupts or worsens my sleep.
- doesn't seem to make a difference; I can take it or leave it.
- usually helps me sleep better.
See now how it really makes you think. I took this test and I scored asa primary "Protein Type," much to my surprise. I thought I wasdeluding myself, so I requested my wife take it for me. She scored mehigher than I had as a Protein Type. I took it a third time for goodmeasure ;-) Then... I immediately shifted my recovery depression diet toeating a 50-30-20 split between protein, carbs and fats.
What's the magic here? I have already been in recovery from depressionfor 10 years. I considered it good recovery, no depression! I had,however, continued to struggle with energy. Bam! Knowing exactly howI was supposed to eat for my body type took care of the energy problem. But, back to the magic... the magic of this depression diet solution is there isno list of foods for you to eat here on this page for depression dietrecovery. The fact is, and please listen closely here, the depression dietformed around your metabolic type is perfectly suited to you and will improveyour depression.
I have known patients of mine who have only treated their depressionthrough a depression diet and have overcome depression by that oneintervention. I highly recommend you read Wolcott's book. Youdeserve the chance to be happy and energetic.
