Nutritional Solutions to Mood Imbalances
Almost every Canadian experiences some from of down times or depression in their life time. Depression is experienced by more women than men. Men are less likely to seek help for depression. Forty percent of alcoholics suffer from depression or other mood imbalances.
A quote from “The Dragonfly” by Moragh Lippert, aspiring author:
“Even though I have twice been diagnosed as clinically depressed, I did not need to rely on the ‘solution’ of the past. Instead, I addressed the physical disorders and nutritional deficiencies that manifested as mood disorders and depression. Working with a skilled Naturopath, I started deep healing through supplement therapy and holistic nutrition. The success of this has been an integral reason that I chose to became an RHN.”
~ Moragh Lippert, The Dragonfly an excerpt from Sharing: our stories; our selves, our success
The quote above is from a book to which I contributed. It was the first time that I described publicly about my addictive tendencies, abuse, depression, exhaustion and anxiety. Healing from depression and anxiety has been a painful and challenging journey . I had no idea that there was a biochemical reason for my emotional imbalances. The light went on when I realized I could heal from these issues with dietary and lifestyle changes and you can too.
Mood disorders are of course caused by many things but there is a definite link to imbalances in the body’s chemistry, digestive disorders, allergies and nutrient deficiencies. These deficiencies and damage to our gut causes problems in the metabolism and absorption of vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and amino acids that make proteins. Our brains stop operating properly, our Spirit falls and our immune system crashes. The body can’t make important neurotransmitters like serotonin, the feel good neurotransmitter or melatonin the one that ensures proper sleep.
