Week 1: Change your diet – Change your life.
Diet plays a major role in not only our physical health, but our mental health as well. Nutrients make a huge difference in your body’s ability to regulate hormones and bio-states. You need these vital components to balance your hormones and support neuro-transmitters.
- Eat lots of dark leafy greens, whole grains, and other fruits and vegetables to assure that you are getting an adequate supply of the vitamins and minerals your body needs.
- Molasses and nutritional yeast are foods that can boost your B vitamins, essential to stress management.
- Eating one Brazil nut per day will give you a selenium boost which is helpful for fighting depression.
- Protein will help your body restore after depletion.
Also cut down on your alcohol and caffeine intake. Although alcohol and caffeine can give you temporary relieve from your depressed state, it will only leave you feeling even more depressed afterwards.
Besides eating better and drinking less, you will also need to use a good vitamin supplement to help you through this healing process. During times of stress, change, and healing, your body uses excess nutrients. It is therefore vital that you use a good multi-vitamin such as Immunadue.
