I hid my battle with depression for over 21 years. I'm done hiding.
Denke schon, dass Erhnährung einen Einfluß auf die Psyche hat. Den Typen aus dem Video find ich ein bissl zu extrem, aber definitiv muss man sich damit einfach mehr auseinandersetzen und dafür war es ein guter Denkanstoß. Bin gespannt wie dir deine Ernährungsumstellung taugt.Freundliche Grüße
I'm not sure if depression can be cured with diet but I'm currently managing my depression with major changes in my diet. Only time will tell if it will work. I've switched to a diet mostly unprocessed foods. I've never been happier than I am now. I've had a host of health issues disappear when I changed my diet. I blog about it at fatgirlgonehealthy.com
I would love to know the answer to that!I have heard that 5-HTP & St John's Wort can help with depression. I have tried both & neither worked for me.
I've been taking SAM-e, which seems to be helping more than the St. John's Wort did. I think natural methods can alleviate depression, but curing it...I'm not sure anything can do that. I've begun to believe that I need to "manage" my depression the way a person "manages" arthritis or some other ailment, but it can't be cured.
I take a variety of supplements - I am not sure they help to be honest, however I do know that diet helps a lot of things.I changed from a high process diet to a wheat free diet and added in exercise and i have helped my mood [not cured the depression] and also put my lupus in remission.I think there is a lot to be said about eating more veg and fruit and not eating wheat at all...But, I also think it all comes with trial and error - have a go for a couple of months and see if you notice a change....Also do some research on EFT - emotional freedom technique. this has been recommended to me by my phycologist [she specialises in food disorders ie binge eating] and it has helped me with stress and also to focus on a better self image...hope this helps - take careCheryl.
I've recently discovered I suffer from bipolar depression and have lost my fiance due to it. I've made a YouTube video to raise awareness for my illness. It would be great if everyone could check it out and help me share it with the world via Facebook, twitter ECTThe video is entitled - Adam turner this is my storyThanks

I have been on meds for depression and they hadn't been working. It got so bad that I even felt suicidal. This was just before Christmas a couple of months ago. I decided that the only way was up at this point, so I did a search on the web. I discovered that Vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid are supposed to really help. I figured I would try it. So I found a bottle of all of these combined by the company Jamieson, asked my pharmacist if it would be safe to take with the meds I am taking and he assured me it was. Thankfully this has been helping me a lot! That plus, of course, eating a sensible diet.
I am new to this website....and suffer from depression....somedays are so much worse than others..and the winter months are awful for me...I am constantly worried about everyone driving on the icy roads...on and on..I have seen a nutritionist, and he also recommends B6 too...am reading a book currently, and it also suggests any B vitamins
Nutrition and food makes a lot of difference when fighting depression. I´ve noticed that cod liver oil, fish, vitamin D and fruits are very helpful.
I'm teetottering around taking medication or overhauling my diet and exercise (which is already pretty healthy). But to be honest, I don't any meds coming near my body.I took antidepressents when I was 9, and literally lived in a fog for about a year.http://brighterbalancedfuture.blogspot.com.au/
There has been many studies on this subject in relation to depression. One supplement I heard that can help is St John Wort. I also agree with some of the other commenters that diet and exercise can also enhance your mood and lessen your depression spells
Depression is a very vast subject. The reasons for depression differ from person to person. One can not drive away the depression just with one solution. It's very complex subject. However, I would like to suggest you a solution that can minimize depression and anxiety, if it's done properly, regularly and with patience.Meditation and Breathing exercise will surely help you minimize the symptoms of depression and anxiety in your life. I am suggesting you from my own experience. This can be a long term process but very effective and powerful.
Depression is a big illness of life which affects your mind and health.In that the condition we should consult to counselor who will give you best solutions and also you can join online depression forums and chat rooms.
I had started taking a multi vitamin, B Complex, C, D, and 5HPT. I hard been dealing with major depression (for me) and started to feel much better. My outlook seemed improved, then I became lazy. I noticed depression returning and realized i had not been taking the supplements. I suppose it could be a coincidence. PMS or pre menopause, or circumstance. Not sure. At any rate, I am back on track today and will let you know next month around this date how I fare.
I don't think it is a coincidence. Your body was telling you - keep taking the supplements, I need them :) It is very hard to get what we need form food these days due to the soil etc etc. Plus some people need different amounts of different vitamins, minerals...we are all so different, but then also so the same ! It's a mind field out there. so just listen to your body, be kind to yourself and take the supplements - is my little opinion xx Try stretching too, it releases endorphins. Back bends are good for "lethargic" depression.
(Anonymous person II) For years I had an iron level that was in the acceptable range on blood tests but was at the low end. Determining a therapeutic amount of iron supplement has helped improve all of the problems I had with low iron: eased depression and anxiety, and has improved memory, concentration and critical thinking. Getting ALL dairy out of my diet has also reduced depression and anxiety (and especially obsessing), reduced brain fog, and has increased self-esteem. I also eat as few processed foods as possible; it helps me feel better.
At least for myself I've found taking a B complex has been helpful (there's a reason they're in "energy drinks"), and daily EFAs--Flax Seed oil being my usual. I wouldn't think of them necessarily as a replacement for medication/therapy but I would recommend to anyone to at least try them for a week or two and see if their mood improves.
First of all well done on taking action! it takes a lot to do that :)I have been looking into Niacin (B3) - the days I take it I feel very leveled. No ups and downs, just a constant kind of contentment I suppose. Depending on the person you can take varying amounts of Niacin. If you feel a hot flush it means you have reached your limit and you need a little less than that dose. There have been people who have used it for major depression and other mental illnesses apparently - but I don't want to go into it because I am not a doctor have not done enough research. All I know is I feel better when I take it. Before taking it my diet has been good, healthy, but I seem to need more B3 than other people, and some people need more B3 than me. Have a look into it - it's only a vitamin! This is where I first heard about it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ZPRNTjrrbY
I do believe that proper diet can improve your overall health. Just like chocolates and exercise can help release endorphins in the body. Therefore, a good and healthy diet would be helpful in treating depression.
I think vitamins along with eliminating triggers like alcohol and adding in exercise and healthier choices into a diet can definitely help. It is probably best to do anything in moderation. I wouldn't completely change a lifestyle overnight, as that can cause a shock to the system and huge changes in mood as well, but slowly making more positive healthy choices can certainly make a big difference over time.
Since there is a biological explanation for depression and medications can work for some id say yes. But in my opinion depression can be caused many events out of your control, how can vit & Mins help you with depression if its caused by environmental factors. If you can find an over the counter pill that can help prevent depressing life events please let me know. BTW i love your blog and i hope you find happiness slowly but surely x
The term "eating disorders" describes conditions in which preoccupation with food, eating-related behaviors, and weight become the central focuses of someone's life. Eating disorders are serious, chronic health conditions that affect men and women of all ages, but primarily affect young women – and they can be fatal because they lead to severe medical complications, such as organ failure from self-starvation.
