Hope for depression is not one big thing, a silver bullet so to speak. It’s the coming together of many things that add up to triumph over depression. One of those many things in our control is eating right. Let’s hear what Nancy Jimenez has to say.
“I am a holistic health and Wellness coach and it is so interesting how much food affects our mood and yet it is not discussed as much as I feel it should be. The connection between our food and the nutrients our body absorbs directly affects our serotonin levels as well as the other neurotransmitters. When we eat junk the absorption of nutrients is compromised and therefore our body is not able to produce the neurotransmitters needed to help us feel.
I truly feel it is the missing piece for a lot of people.”
