All drugs have side effects, including over-the-counter medications.
- Insomnia and nervousness
- Sexual problems
What a quandary!
19 million Americans want relief and help for depression.
Quite often doctors give just two treatment options, medication and psychotherapy.
There is a third option that is completely safe and without side effects.
This effective treatment option is nutrition – food and natural supplements.*
Diet and Depression
The first step is to lay a great foundation by eating a balanced whole food diet.
Develop the habit of eating three meals each day and two snacks.
Build your meals and snacks around the triad protein-fat-carbohydrate, by following the guidelines below.
The most concentrated sources of protein for making neurotransmitters are found in animal sources like fish, poultry, beef, eggs, dairy, lamb, pork and venison.Our brain needs to be nourished and the primary nutrient that we must eat three times a day is protein. Amino acids come from the protein that we eat and amino acids are the raw materials that the body uses to build happy brain chemicals called neurotransmitters.
Julia Ross, author of The Mood Cure says, “There’s no question about this one, I’ve seen hundreds and hundreds of people add more protein to their lives and report great changes in their moods within days as a result.”
Ross also adds, “Most people seem to need 20 to 30 grams of protein per meal. That means at least a palm-of-your-hand-size portion of protein three times a day!”
The best meat to buy is grass-fed organic meat from a local producer.
You may also purchase quality grass fed meat from on-line sources like EatWild.com anUSWellnessMeats.com
Our brains are two-thirds fat and having enough natural fat in our diet is critical to proper function of our happy brain chemicals! Omega-3 fatty acids are prevalent in fish like salmon, sardines, and herring.
Eat fish several times a week and supplement with a quality cod liver oil.
Additionally, enjoy unrefined coconut oil, olive oil, olives, nuts, seeds and organic butter and cream.
Eating low-fat and fat-free is very harmful to the brain, nerves, hormones and every cell. Eliminate unhealthy processed fats like canola oil, margarine, sunflower oil, safflower oil, corn oil, cottonseed oil and any food that has been deep fried.
Whole fruit is also nutrient rich and can also be included.Load up on a variety of vegetables, the best carbohydrates for happy moods. Vegetable carbohydrates are a rich source of nutrients and they don’t sabotage your health and good mood like refined grains can.
Eating a whole food diet will help avoid artificial ingredients commonly found in processed foods. Artificial sweeteners, MSG, dyes, preservatives and additives may cause great harm to brain cells and disrupt mood.
To learn more about this topic, I recommend reading the book Excitotoxins:The Taste That Kills, by neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock.
Several nutrients are very helpful for those suffering from depression, including
- Vitamin D3
- Omega 3 Fatty Acids (Cod Liver Oil)
- Vitamin B Complex
- Specific amino acids (like 5HTP, GABA, Tyrosine)
Phyllis A. Balch provides dosage and additional information in her book, Prescription for Nutritional Healing.
Stop eating processed food and refined sugar
Sugar can lead to depression. Sugar is found in most processed foods, so avoid eating processed foods, breads, soft drinks and snacks that contain any sugar or refined flour which quickly converts into sugar in the bloodstream.
Herbs and spices improve blood sugar levels, have anti-inflammatory properties, and boost the brain.
Enhance the flavor and health benefits of every meal by adding one or more of the following:
Drink filtered water
Caffeine is dehydrating, so limit coffee and caffeinated tea and other drinks with caffeine, sugar or artificial sweeteners.Increasing your water intake impacts tryptophan’s availability to the brain.
Albert Grazia, M.S., N.D. says, “Depression may be another complication of chronic dehydration. The amino acid tryptophan is required by the brain to produce the neurotransmitter serotonin, which subsequently is needed to make melatonin.
An adequate amount of water is required for tryptophan to be transported into the brain. Dehydration may limit the amount of tryptophan available to the brain and to complicate matters.” 2
How much water?
Drink half your body weight in ounces of filtered water. For example, a person weighing 150 pounds needs to drink 75 ounces of water each day.
Using nutrition to restore balance and ease depression is an effective treatment option for many people. Rather than thinking of nutrition as a quick fix, continually build good habits into your life, making lifelong changes that will enable you to achieve your health goals now and in the future.

Do You Know Your Body’s Most Important Weight Loss Secret?
By J. Davis III
Tags: HEALING | HEALTHY FATS | REMEDIES
Recently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.
Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.
Secret #2: stop eating out. You will automatically eat less without even noticing.
Then start detoxing your body with tasty, nourishing smoothies that are just as easy on your wallet as they are easy to make.
Because a single day of enjoying Liz’ smoothies demonstrated the radical power of her superfood-packed red smoothies to make me feel incredibly good.
Now prepare yourself for one of the biggest weight loss secrets there is. A secret that, when you use it properly, can transform your body and your health.
You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.
Here’s how it works...
“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”
“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”
Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.
Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.
“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…
What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?
Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”
So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.
