The Drug-Free ANSWER for Depression
Tell most mainstream doctors that you’re feeling depressed, and they’ll have a prescription pad out before you finish talking.
Never mind that antidepressants can ruin your sex life… or make you put on weight… or are nearly impossible to quit.
But you don’t need a dangerous drug to beat depression.
In fact, you may not need drugs at all.
There’s a simple dietary switch that could help get rid of your blues for good.
But it comes with a big catch you need to know about.
The connection between diet and mental health is well documented.
I’m honestly shocked that a major dietary overhaul isn’t used as the first line of treatment against conditions like depression.
At the top of the list of beneficial foods are fruits and vegetables. But even though fruits and veggies have been proven to have a positive impact on depression, there’s a catch.
You have to make sure you’re getting the right kind.
More specifically, you need to make sure they’re raw.
A recent study published in the journal Frontiers in Psychologyevaluated the difference between raw veggies vs. canned, processed veggies when it comes to impacting mental health.
Hands down, the raw food was the way to go.
It didn’t matter whether it was kiwis, bananas, leafy greens, or carrots… the raw veggies were far superior to the processed ones in lowering symptoms of depression and improving mental health.
They also boosted mood, psychological well-being, and general life satisfaction.
This research makes perfect sense to me. When you cook vegetables—or if they’re processed in some way—nutrient levels take a nosedive, which means their benefits do as well.
Other depression-fighting foods include wild-caught salmon, whole grains, beans, nuts, and seeds (which help control inflammation).
In other words, for the best depression-fighting diet, be sure to load up on healthy whole foods and cut out the processed junk food.
It really can be as simple as that.
To a brighter day,
