Can Diet Delete Depression?

That Lost,Lonely Feeling.

Most of us at one time or other have had an experience with depresion in our lives and provided we can be responsive enough to catch it in the early stages,is usually short lived,unfortunatley some of us are not so responsive.

Depression is known world wide and affects more than 264 million people and when neglected can often lead to suicide,which subsequently takes close to another 800,000 lives,second only to traffic injuries among 15-29 year olds according to WHO.( World Health Organization)

Yet with all the medical break-throughs and new antidepressant drugs in todays marketplace,why are we still seeing this debilitating disease take control of thousands of lives every single day? Although it may seem that the medical industry is always looking for better efficiency,unfortunately each new progress in efficiency leads to a new problem. Solving the problem could be as easy as looking into new or other alternative methods,but that’s not what the industries do when they encounter systematic problems. Their solution is not to go back and see what’s wrong with the system,instead they are more concerned with coming up with new high tech repairs that enable the system to continue.

What About Nutrition?

Truth of the matter is we’ve been using nutrition and supplements to not only prevent but treat a plethora of diseases as far back as the early 1940’s,depression being one of them. A study released in late 2019 revealed that low fruit and vegetable intake was associated with significant levels of depression in Korean Adults from the Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey back in 2014.

According to Professor Ian Brightope,(M.D.,M.B.B.S.,D.AG.SCI.,FACNEM,FACHM) and founding president of Australaisian College of Nutritional Medicine,26% of patients discharged from hospitals are more malnourished than when they were admitted. And in 80-90 % of the time, the main reason they go in was related to a poor state of nutrition. Did you know that two handfuls(approximately 36 nuts) of cashews has the therapeutic equivilancy as one dose of Prozac? “Oh,but they’re expensive” you say,yet how much does it cost for Prozac or Chlorpromozine or any other of the SSRI and TCA (Serotonin Selective Reuptake Inhibitors and Tricyclic Antidepressant) medications,with or without a drug plan ?Yes! cashews are fattening but my point is:” I may be fat but you’re suffering from depression and I can go on a diet”

The Health and Nutrition Highway

As cliche’ as it may sound,the world wide web is a great place to start looking for information on living a more vibrant and drug free life. The internet is bursting with ideas and foods and lifestyle changes to help us better ourselves.You’ll be amazed at what you find.  and the first step should be a consultation with a certified dietician

The Road To Recovery

Getting started on better food choices doesn’t have to be a daunting task. You can start small with maybe a piece of friut or 1 salad a day. Then gradually work your way up. A twenty minute walk on the treadmill or around your neighborhood 3 times a week. This is not to say it will have the same affects on you as it would someone else. I’m just saying try it for 2 weeks. I think you will like the results.

      1. Good Morning Teresa,

        Hope you and yours are all safe and well. First of all, please excuse my delayed response in regards to your inquiry.
        Running a website can be both time consuming and demanding not to mention mentally exhausting! LOL. In Answer to your first question, there are so many Acronyms I have to deal with on a daily basis, I’m not quite sure I ‘m familiar with the term “CID”. Could you be more specific please? If I do not have the answer, I will get it.

        Secondly, as I’ m only a Nutritionist and not a General Practitioner I am not licensed to speak(as an M.D) on any side effects this new vaccine may foist on the worlds population. What I CAN share with you is my own personal experience with Flu-Shots. It was some 8 or 9 years ago, when the public Health Clinic was issuing Flu-shots to the public and anyone who was interested. Since it was free, I thought ” Why Not?”

        Skipping to the chase, less than a week later I was SICK AS A DOG . This A true event, needless to say you will never see ME(nor my son) in a clinic again signing up for some free Flu-Shot! and for the record as a Health Activist that is only my opinion.

        I would also like to comment on something else in your email. You mentioned something about not even knowing what’s IN this vaccine? ie; Some say DNA, Chip? is that so?

        I’d would like to thank you for opening my own eyes and giving me a better understanding of just how important that question was! Normally, something like that I would just shrug off as nonsense. The reason I say this is because that’s exactly what I did on or about a week ago when I watched something on the news(I posted it on HealthAffects) something about this new vaccine and how political leaders and the government were “Floating The Idea” of making this vaccine MANDATORY!. I then quickly rushed home to tell my son what I had heard on the news, which to no surprise, immediately caused him to jump out of bed in a flaming rage saying I’m not going to take no vaccine . I’ll move to the to African JUNGLE if I have to.
        Then he said something else that appeared to be nonsense… until I read your email. I thought he was just mad and not thinking straight. “We don’t even know what’s in it.” He said. “How do we know they’re not putting some sort of TRACKING DEVICE in it to track people?” I calmly explained to the 28 year old youth, in Canada that would be against the CANADIAN CHARTER OF RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS under the Privacy Act( I don’t know what it’s called in The U.S.) and BANG! A few days later I’m reading a comment(yours of course) and suddenly reminded me of what my own son had said. The next question, obvious by now is if my son is thinking this and also you are thinking this, there may be a pattern. Who ELSE is thinking this? Good question? Yes?

        Fact is, Doctors and General practioners kill over 5000 people a year through over-medication and misdiagnosis, and that number may have well grown since the last time I read the report. HealthAffects.com does NOT encourage nor endorse the administering of any drug or synthetic chemical to the body. In certain Extreme cases yes. Fun fact: Did you know of all the trillions( yes trillions) of cells in the body, not ONE of them is made up of a drug?. When we provide our bodies with the proper nutrients and nourishment, it just goes right on ahead and fixes the damages itself. A truly healthy body cannot get COVID-19, or Diabetes or Cancer for that matter. It’s as simple as 2 easy steps: DETOXIFY and FORTIFY with the proper nutrients and supplements. The choice is yours.

        That said, please, when you get time, go to healthaffects.com and participate in the poll I posted: Should the Government make the COVID-19 VACCINE MANDATORY? Tell all your friends and family members about healthaffects.com and to to participate as well. Just make sure they login from a different IP address to ensure all votes get accounted for. In doing so, you will not only be making the right decisions for you and loved ones, you will be giving to them that which is the most precious gift of all and that is the gift of LIFE!
        In closing, May the joy and warmth of the Holiday bring bring love and laughter to you and all your loved ones and the sincerest of wishes for a safe and healthy New Year.
