Research: 7 Nutritional Deficiencies That Cause Depression & Mood Disorders

Research: 7 Nutritional Deficiencies That Cause Depression & Mood Disorders | Mind-Body Health | Scoop.it

 "If you suffer from depression or mood disorders you may be deficient in one of these nutrients."

 

Depression and mood disorders are devastating health problems today. When you go to your doctor, their answer is often a prescription for one of the various popular anti-depressant drugs.

 

Many doctors do not investigate for metabolic or nutritional deficiencies that may be the ‘real problem’ for your depression. Patients have no idea why they feel so awful or where to start looking for the answer. They expect their doctor to give them real solutions. Instead they get drugs as the easy fix. Drugs are not an easy fix because of the serious side effects that come with taking them.

What we eat has a major effect on how, and who, we are. Simply taking a daily multivitamin can help "fill in the blanks" if you feel your nutritional choices are not a good as they could be.

H2O Alkalizer's curator insight, August 28, 9:53 AM

Just another example of where nutrition should be considered before medication.

Learning to Be Present With Yourself

Learning to Be Present With Yourself | Mind-Body Health | Scoop.it

New research on the brain in the past 10 years has shed a light on how much past experience and the desire to avoid pain shapes our brain pathways. Our brains were designed first and foremost to help us survive and pass on our genes, and therefore have automatic negative biases and orientations towards danger. We automatically scan our worlds for past mistakes we dare not repeat and future threats we try desperately to avoid and prepare to deal with. In so doing, we lose touch with present-moment experience and limit our abilities to spontaneously experience positive states such as joy, connection, and love. Teaching ourselves to focus on the present moment can train our brain pathways towards more deliberate and positive experiencing.

Ten Scientific Reasons Why You’re Feeling Depressed

Ten Scientific Reasons Why You’re Feeling Depressed | Mind-Body Health | Scoop.it
Are you waking up just feeling “blah”?  Like you don’t want to do anything except lie like a couch potato and watch TV, and even that is unsatisfying?  You not only feel low energy, but kind of miserable.  Perhaps you’re mad at yourself for not getting the house cleaned or not getting your work done and papers filed. Perhaps you’re feeling a bit lonely, left out by friends or unsupported by family.  You may dwell on mounting bills or the fact that you’re 10 or 20 pounds overweight.  You may feel aches and pains in your neck or back.  Or you may just may feel grouchy and want to remain undisturbed by life’s demands and conversational opportunities.  You may compare yourself unfavorably to your friend, roommate, cousin, or neighbor, who always seems to be on time, well-groomed, and on track to meet her goals.  We all have those “blah” days, but why do they happen and what can we do about them?
