192. We Are What We Eat

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.”

– Nancy Jimenez, Holistic Health and Wellness Coach; LCPC, Billingual Professional School Counselor, Program Development, Silver Spring, Maryland

About Patrick Day

In 2010, I escaped from four long years of deep, dark depression. This blog shares lessons I learned from those years as depicted in my autobiography - How I Escaped from Depression - as well as other insights about depression and anxiety that only come from someone who has gone through it. When you have a heart attack, you become an expert in heart attacks. When you have diabetes, you become an expert in that condition. As such, I am an expert in depression, with a four-year experiential degree and graduate studies in how to live a life going forward that keeps the ever-lurking Depression at a healthy distance.
